Vice-President Joe Biden praised the killing of Osama bin-Laden, calling it the most audacious plan of the past 500 years.
Asked about other possible contenders for most audacious planthe D-Day invasion of Normandy during WWII or Washingtons Christmas Day attack on Hessian troops in 1776Biden replied no contest.
The raid that killed bin-Laden was carried out without any casualties for our side, Biden pointed out. The same cant be said for any other action taken by any other president. Lets not forget that Allied Forces had 10,000 casualties on D-Day and 2500 men were killed. Thats a bit of a blemish on that accomplishment.
Bin-Laden was hiding, Biden said. No one knew for sure where he was. Normandy was an obvious target. Everyone knew the Nazis were there. And dont get me started about the Hessians. They were drunk from throwing a loud Christmas party. Finding them and whipping them was a cinch.
Taking out bin-Laden was televised to the White House, Biden recalled. President Obama was virtually there with the Seals as the mission unfolded. Roosevelt played a more remote part in the D-Day event. And Washington wasnt even president when he led the Christmas raid.
Finally, the level of risk was incomparable, Biden asserted. Even if D-Day had turned into a disaster it wouldnt have been Roosevelts first. Anyone remember Pearl Harbor? And Washington had a pretty mediocre war record prior to that raid. In short, neither one of them was putting a perfect record on the line. No, the reward for guts clearly has to go to President Obama. I think voters will see that and reelect him in November.

This is not "semi-satire".
Okay, it was not what was displayed on Biden's teleprompter; however...
I suspect that it is a direct quote from one of the voices in Biden's head.
Another scary/funny column John.
Biden is cool:
Biden is the gift that keeps on gjving. No shortage of material when he’s around.

But he did say it, John.
The principal difficulty is that you read other stories these days which purport to be actual “news” and you start thinking they were all written by our worthy J.S.
