Skip to comments.Big Mistake: Billing Liberal Biden As "More Conservative" Than Obama
Posted on 08/22/2008 9:56:25 PM PDT by Williams
The conservative talk show world is blundering badly right now, Hannity and others keep emphasizing that Joe Biden voted for the Iraq war which Obama opposed. The aim is to show Obama's own (probable) VP pick disagrees with Obama's policies.
This will only confuse moderates and conservatives into thinking Obama has chosen a more conservative running mate. Biden is a liberal, if you take a look at his positions, it is an unbroken nightmare of every left wing idea we oppose: Pro abortion plus the promise to appoint liberal judges who support Roe v Wade, full opposition to the Bush tax cuts, a 91% approval rating from the NEA, the list goes on and on.
Biden voted for the Iraq resolution and said things about the danger of Sadaam Hussein - just like Hilary, John Kerry, and most of the far left semators. If you look into Biden's comments during the war, he really opposed all aspects of the Bush policy, predicted disaster, and was a constant apologist for Syria and Iran, "warning" against any US threat to those terrorist states.
Biden is a NorthEast Liberal from a state that only elects liberals, he tries to hide that by billing Delaware as a "Southern" state, etc. The only attack on this ticket that will work is to point out Obama has shown no political diversity in picking Biden, these are two extreme liberals running together.
Take a look at Biden's positions at this site, they are enough to strike fear into any conservative and most moderates: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Political_positions_of_Joe_Biden
Biden probably is more conservative than Obama, it’s not saying much.
Have these talk show host really used the phrase "more conservative" rather than the (far) more accurate "slightly less liberal"? If so, that is indeed a large error. As you mentioned, both B-HO and Biden reside in the far left-corner of the American political spectrum.
Moderates, by definition, are confused. There's not much that can be done to un-confuse them.
Conservatives, on the other hand, know full well that Joe Biden is a full-on, certifiable nutjob and there's not much that can be done to disavow us of that notion.
The only time the word ‘conservative’ should be used in discussing these two nutcases is ‘Conservatives are THRILLED that Obama was tricked into picking such an egotistical disaster as Joe Biden’.
Look at his positions, and we need to start remembering what a liberal jerk Biden always has been. i have watched him on Hardball practically throwing himself in front of Syria and Iran and demanding we not threaten those terrorist states.
The same talking heads of which you speak have spent years kissing Liebermanns’ ass, they can’t very well look at a guy with nearly the same record and scream “LIBERAL” now can they?
He wants someone who will make him look like a moderate
Someone who will appeal to women voters
Someone who can steal democrat votes from Obama
He wants to be bi-partisain, and "reach across the aisle"
Right now Fox is billing Biden as this wonderful experienced foreign policy expert, without noticing he is a liberal jerk of the highest order, Hannity relied almost totally on Biden’s “support” of the Iraq war, which in reality was as deep as Hilary or Kerry’s phoney support. Biden is no less liberal than Hilary. My image of Biden is a Les Aspen, who was a disaster as Sec of Defense. I think Biden might screw things up worse than Obama.
Well sure, Biden is more conservative than Obama, but not by much. Barack was #1 most liberal, Biden was 3rd most liberal.
Been wrong before, but there's something else churning here in my opinion.
Right now Fox is all liberal telling us how great Obama is to be running even with McCain, despite being inexperienced and an African American! I kid you not. This is a disgrace. Bob Beckel is the only guest, it’s a Biden love fest.
Actually,he is more conservative than Sen.Obama.Sen. Bernie Sanders is more conservative than Obama,and Sanders is a Socialist!!!!
Stalin and Mao Tse Tung were more conservative than Obama, so what’s your point?
Then stop watching.
It’s not much of a mistake. It shoots down the credibility of Obambi’s team being an agent of “change” and will confuse the moonbat base. The only think Plagiarist Joe can “change” is Obama’s diaper.
It’s like saying scratching your butt is more attractive than picking your nose.
OK, OK, so he is Trotsky vs. Lenin...fine.
“You say that Biden is more conservative than Obaba?”
“So in other words, Obama is an extreme ultr-left-wing socialist?”
Didn’t they just show this on Fox? Biden with a 91% Liberal record.
