Biden: Bin Laden killing most 'audacious' plan in 500 years
Politico ^ | March 19, 2012 | Jennifer Epstein

Posted on 03/20/2012 7:01:12 AM PDT by C19fan

Vice President Joe Biden is the biggest cheerleader of the president's decision to raid Osama bin Laden's compound and, on Monday, he offered new praise for the choice Obama made last spring.

“You can go back 500 years. You cannot find a more audacious plan. Never knowing for certain. We never had more than a 48 percent probability that he was there,” Biden said at a fundraiser in Morris Township, N.J.

Breathe deeply... The idiot is in NJ and never heard of Washington's crossing of the Delaware. Even Frederick the Great thought what Washington did was one of the greatest feats of military history.

Right Joe. Killing OBL topped every accomplishment this country has ever had.

You know, things like, the atomic bomb, landing on the moon, those sort of things.

" We never had more than a 48 percent probability that he was there,” Biden said

48 percent? LOL!!! Where does that ass-clown pull these numbers from? And "probability"? Does he even know what the word means?

As compared to say, Lawrence of Arabia’s epic 600 mile desert march to attack Aqaba from the eastern desert?

This is more tragic than funny. This man is quite probably psychotic and delusional. And he is the Vice President of the United States.

Stunningly, Staggeringly, Superbly, STUPID.

But sadly, many folks have never heard of D-Day, Washington’s raid on Trenton, the Doolittle Raid, the moon landing, etc.

How about the raid on Entebee by Isreal? That was a pretty good plan. Beautifuly executed with an extreme minimum loss of life on the good guys side. It has always facinated me how it was pulled off.

How about how we got Saddam Hussein? Yet, another succesful capture of a tyrant. Bush did good with that plan.

And yes, D-Day was one of the best executed plans ever concieved.

Obama has to scratch and claw for ANYTHING to call a success. How pathetic.

Also Benedict Arnold’s 350 mile march on Quebec through the largely uncharted Maine swamps in the oncoming 1775 winter.

And Henry Knox’s transportation of the seized cannon at Ticonderoga 300 miles on sled through the dead of winter to the Dorchester Heights in Boston, forcing the British to give up their occupation.

What an ignoramus.

There Joe goes again with his hyperbole.

Of course, Joe Biden also thinks he’s always the smartest guy in the room.

Why the Dems think this guy is a political asset to the re-election team is beyond me. This dufus opens his mouth, and surely he must chase away voters. Seriously? Does Team Obama really think he’s helping garner votes?

By painting such an outrageously laughable over-the-top portrait of Obama doesn’t the vice president simply invite everyone to poke holes at the president’s flaws?

The funny thing is that I think Biden really believes what he’s saying, and the guy seriously delusional to such a degree that he could be diagnosed as mentally ill.

I think you’re right; all kidding aside I think Biden probably would qualify for commitment to a psych ward his grasp of reality is so attenuated.

The drooling half-wit (apologies to half-wits) hasn’t figured out that most people including his party of traitors actually knows that the operation to get OBL started with GWB and Cheney.

This jackass has seriously surpassed the idiocy of algore and it is kind of difficult to find any VP in history as completely bereft of higher brain function than this POS.

The vice presidential nomination is usually completely up to the presidential nominee to decide and it is his first major decision he has to make. That Obama picked an embarrassing idiot like Biden tells us a lot about Obama's judgment and seriousness of purpose--just as George W. Bush's choice of Dick Cheney told us a lot about GWB.

The only times in recent history when it wasn't a question of the presidential nominee making the decision were in 1956, when Adlai Stevenson allowed the convention to decide, and 1960, when Lyndon Johnson blackmailed Kennedy into picking him (Kennedy had intended to pick Stuart Symington). At least that is how Seymour Hersh tells the story.

Mao’s and Zhang’s absolutely crazed kidnap of Chiang Kai-shek is also really high up there, I mean, the Xian incident has affected history as much as the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki... and it was pulled off by slight of hand.

Warlord Zhang gave an interview about it before he passed away:

I think the roman army marched about 40 hours overnight and surprised the enemy at dawn.

Didn’t the Vietnamese dig through a mountain with hand tools and surround the French headquarters?

No helicopters, modern communications, and the audacity and determination to get it done.

Normandy, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, the Doolittle Raid, The Crossing of the Delaware - all are easy decisions compared to Obama’s Go or No-Go decision over killing Osama.

The only thing about Soetoro's decision was that Slick Willie wouldn't make the same move which would have saved the lives of almost 3,000 Americans in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

According to JO-JO The Clown dropping nukes on Japan to end a war was just a walk in the park.
