Skip to comments.Rudy raises issue of Biden - doubts own trust in Barack Obama
Posted on 10/20/2008 8:54:35 PM PDT by jessduntno
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani today raised doubts about Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Joe Biden's own trust in Barack Obama;
"He seems to be predicting some very serious incident thats going to take place and he seems to think that the reaction isnt going to be the right one," Giuliani said in a conference call with reporters. "This is an extraordinary statement."
Obama's runningmate doesn't think he's ready to be president.
The campaign used the opportunity with reporters and Biden's comments to further its contention that Obama was not ready to lead and referenced Biden's own comparison of the way John F. Kennedy was tested early on in his presidency.
Scheunemann said Kennedy's willingness to meet with Soviets at that time led the world to think of him as weak, leading to the building of the Berlin Wall, among other things, and the same would happen to Obama. The McCain campaign has repeatedly said meetings Obama has said he'd have with countries such as Iran, Venezuela and North Korea show he's inexperienced and weak.
"The reality is that Joe Biden is saying hes scared of something," Giuliani said. "It gets us back to who is better prepared to be President of the United States of America."
Also, Giuliani took a shot at the media saying if a Republican made similar comments it'd be a bigger deal.
"If a republican made these statements itd be on the front page of the New York Times tomorrow saying the Republican was using scare tactics," he said, finally driving home what seemed to be the point of the call itself: "It seems that Joe Biden is telling us, in his very convoluted way, that John McCain is more qualified to be president."

So he’s going to raise taxes heading into a recession and his inexperience is going to result in a fresh new international crisis for us? Yeah, the “hope” and “change” we need.
They really need to slam Obama with Biden’s own words. Something like “...8 months ago Joe Biden said Barack Obama wasn’t ready to be president. Now last week he’s said it again. America cannot afford Barack Obama.”
can you think of any u.s. president with less experience
but on the fast track to the presidency than
If Obiden is right, I believe we could see “That One” make history by being the first U.S. President to wet his pants at the podium during a press conference.
Obama and Biden continue to sink their own campaign with their own words, producing more effective results than anything the Mccain campaign has put together.
Mark my words...this Biden comment and its ramifications are gonna dominate the news cycles right into the weekend.
Obama is gonna be pissed!!
“Rimshot” Joe Biden. - Just one serious crisis and a “nickel bag” away from the presidency. Scarey stuff.
Now he is letting everyone know not to vote for THAT ONE.
Biden may be a doofus, but I've never doubted that he is an American through and through. (I think if Biden were at the top of the ticket, the Dims would win in a walk; not that I would vote for him mind you.) And maybe, just maybe, he's more of an American than a Democrat.
Well done—surely McCain can afford some 10-second buys.
Biden is not fit to be president should something happen to Obamanation.
We really need that video clip of Biden lecturing a voter on how Biden is smarter than he is.
Does anyone still think that Obama is the antichrist? Would the antichrist pick a running mate as stone cold stupid as Biden?
How many years has Mark Levin been telling us that Biden is the dumbest man in the Senate. Guess he knows whereof he speaks.
I don’t think I’ve ever, in 53 years of life and 40+ years of observing politics, seen such a numbskull in national office. The man is so stupid I’m surprised he can get up in the morning.
And yet somehow he’s assembled a multi-million dollar “compound” type home in Delaware. Like Vito Corleone. And everybody’s just “hey, it’s cool, he’s our wonderful Senator, he deserves it, I’m sure.”
Maybe he’s smart compared to the rest of Delaware. Good grief.
The only explanation other than that the man is literally as dumb as a wooden post is this: that he heard what was said at the classified briefing given the candidates recently, and what he heard scared him so much that he’s decided to throw Obama under the bus.
Crazy Joe wants to become a stand-up comic in a seedy strip club.
