Biden's Bungles

NY Post

What does that mean? Obama's election would provoke an international incident because of his inexperience and even Obama's biggest supporters won't be reassured by his response?

Then there were Biden's predictions on the economy: "I promise you, you all are gonna be sitting here a year from now going, 'Oh my God, why are they there in the polls? . . . Why is this thing so tough? . . . I'm asking you now, be prepared to stick with us. Remember the faith you had at this point, because you're going to have to reinforce us.

Biden's prediction about his own ticket is that Obama will be elected and that within six months we will have an international incident equivalent to the Cuban Missle Crisis. Then on top of that his own polling on items like direction of the country and job satisfaction rating will be in the toilet. Biden expects large majorities of the population to be questioning the effectiveness and direction of an Obama administration.

If a Republican were claiming such things about the ticket it would be national news and would be the subject of several media spin cycles. With Biden and the Democrats though what we get is nothing but non-coverage and crickets chirping.

The gaffes are just gravy.
