After raking John McCain and Sarah Palin over the coals for the negativity of the election campaign, Senator Joseph Biden decided to bring some cheer to the fray.
He did so by warning that, if elected, President Obama would be tested by a major international disaster.
Just what exactly did you have in mind, Senator? A terrorist attack? Further collapse of the U.S. economy? A violent outburst from a disgruntled Hillary Clinton?
Actually, Biden has hit on a real conundrum for liberals: With George W. Bush consigned to tumbleweed patches in Texas, who will Democrats blame for hurricanes, the stock market, global warming, the recession, and wars hither and yonder?
Ye won`t have good old W to kick around anymore, BO!
The ball will be in your court, and double dribbling is not allowed. You can no longer pass the ball to Republicans in order to shift blame.
Back to the genteel and eloquent manner of speech that Biden is renowned for. He continued to rant and rave as follows:
"Gird your loins," Biden told the crowd. "We`re gonna win with your help, God willing, we`re gonna win, but this is not gonna be an easy ride. This president, the next president, is gonna be left with the most significant task. It`s like cleaning the Augean stables, man. This is more than just, this is more than " think about it, literally, think about it " this is more than just a capital crisis, this is more than just markets. This is a systemic problem we have with this economy."http://blogs.abcnews.com/politicalradar/2008/10/biden-to-suppor.html
Augean stables? Sounds as though Biden is referring to the U.S. House where likes of Tom Mahoney, Charles Rangel, and William Jefferson have created a filthy mess.
Hey wait a minute! Didn`t Speaker Pelosi promise to clean up the filth left by Republicans and their "Culture of Corruption"?
Maybe it will take more than an incompetent grandmother and notorious liberal to clean the Augean mess that Democrats have made?
The real disaster will occur if the American people are foolish enough to elect a non-citizen communist to serve as president!
