From the New York Post,
“Mark my words,” Biden warned Sunday at a Democratic fund-raiser. “It will not be six months [after the inauguration] before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy.”
Then he added, “Watch. We’re going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”
Now, here’s where it gets scary.
Obama’s “gonna need your help to use your influence within the community to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”
He’s going to need help?
What’s particularly disturbing is Biden’s Kennedy analogy.
For those who don’t recall, it was a scant five months after JFK became president that Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev took his measure.
Kennedy had just bungled the 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion in Cuba, then went off to a summit in Vienna – where Khruschev determined that the rookie chief executive could be had.
Two months later, construction began on the Berlin Wall, precipitating a crisis that nearly led to a US-Soviet shooting war in Europe.
And 14 months after that came the Cuban Missile Crisis – when nuclear Armageddon was only barely averted.
Is Biden saying that America’s current enemies – sorely aware of Obama’s inexperience – plan to test a President Obama with similar crises, to see what he’s made of?
Sure seems like it.
Oh, but I thought everybody across the world loved and respected Obama? I thought all the rogue nations across the world needed was to sit down and have a nice chat without preconditions over a cup of tea with Barry and suddenly, all of our cares would be over?
But instead, here’s Joe Biden making a “gaffe,” which in D.C. terms means that he’s accidentally telling an embarrassing truth: there are nations in the world that don’t like America and they see Barack Obama as a weak, naive, wet-behind-the-ears empty suit whom they can easily manipulate and intimidate. Incidentally, they’re probably right about that.
On the upside, if we have an Obama presidency, a foreign disaster may provide a welcome distraction to keep the Democrats from destroying the country domestically for a few months. If having Barack in the White House inspires China to invade Taiwan, Iran to start a war with Israel, or Russia to invade Poland, at least the disaster would be happening in another country, as opposed to the disaster that would be occurring day in and day out if Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi are allowed to inflict their agenda on America. Maybe that sound a little cold, but I put America first and if a disaster is happening somewhere in the world, self-inflicted or otherwise, I’d rather it be in another country.
PS: If I were an ally of America, I would plan on defending myself from now on. Setting aside the fact that I wouldn’t want to bet my life on Barack Obama coming through for me, if the Democrats get in, they may do so much permanent damage to the country that we will never recover and be able to help other countries like we do today. That’s not hyperbole either. I’m dead serious about that.
PS #2: If Obama gets in, will the media cry “racism” when people point out his enormous screw-ups on the foreign policy front? You know, “Obama saying North Korea should be allowed to permanently have nuclear weapons as long as Kim-Jung-Il pinky swears that he won’t sell them is obviously a great idea and anyone who disagrees is only doing it because he’s black?” I’m betting that they will.
