God love ya' Joe! Biden says "Obama will be tested"

Which is Biden-speak for "we're screwed" or so a friend of mine says which is a pretty straight-forward way of looking at Biden's comments picked up by Jennifer Rubin:

“Mark my words,” the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”

“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,” Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. “And he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you - not financially to help him - we’re gonna need you to use your influence, 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.”

Presidents in the past have been tested repeatedly. The last one that faced test after test was Bill Clinton, and he failed miserably every time al Qaeda pushed his buttons. Bush face it just nine months after he was inaugurated, and succeeded. Why? Because we haven't been hit since. Al Qaeda turned it's eyes to our allies, and squeezed Spain and Canada into capitulating. We haven't yet, and as long as we elect John McCain, we probably won't face a serious test immediately. Why? Because McCain is just like Bush when it comes to national security. He's not going to tolerate some tin-horn, two-bit thug pushing this nation around.

If Obama is elected, we can be sure that Ahmadinejad will push buttons. We're seeing it already in the Middle East with the saber-rattling rhetoric between Iran and Israel. Anyone think Putin won't try to push some buttons to see how far Obama is willing to go? How about Kim Jong-Il? The NorKs have recently reneged on the deal reached to end their nuclear program, so we could easily see a Clinton-esque deal struck with the NorKs to keep them in line, a la Madeline "Halfbright" Albright.

Hell, if I were any of these guys, I'd push the buttons daily just to see Obama jump.

But you know what Biden is really saying with this statement? He's letting us know that we're not going to be safe. He's letting us know that these people will challenge us, and he's not positive that Obama is going to make the right decisions. Even Bill Clinton agrees that it depends on the definition of the word "ready" when it comes to whether or not Obama will be prepared for what's to come. And if Obama's own running mate is making that case, that should make a few people take notice of this rookie, and the danger he's obviously oblivious to.

Even more ammo to elect John McCain. Why elect Obama and then immediatley have to go on the defensive? Put the McCain team in there and these thugs will think more than twice before taking any sort of action.

Waiting for Hugh Hewitt to lift his moratorium!

Thanks much for the ink!

I have to wonder whether Biden secretly, deep, deep down, wants Obama to lose, and if he's trying to alert the American people, even sub-consciously. But I also doubt the Obamaniacs are even listening. Israel will have to act if Obama wins.
absurd thought -
God of the Universe gives
Iran nuclear weapons

to destroy Israel
and then convert Europe

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
Israel should surrender

they have no right to exist
if terrorist states say so
