In a speech at New York University last week, Vice President Joe Biden laid out the case for the Democratic ticket's re-election: "Osama bin Laden is dead, and General Motors is alive."
Good riddance to bin Laden. That our Navy SEALs killed him is the settlement of an account overdue. The commander in chief who authorized and oversaw that operation deserves his satisfactionand the country grants it to him. But the public will draw its own subtle line on the exploitation of that event, and it will not abide the SEALs' bravery being used as a campaign prop....
He can run on it only because the American people aren’t aware of how he is destroying our defenses, and the republicans are focusing only on the economy.
If the record was like the ones that used to come as prizes in cereal boxes, then yes.
Sure. It’s a marvelous economic record! .... NOT
That opens the door for Obama to try and re-run the Bob Casey Senate campaign of 2006.
“That Eeeeeevil Warmonger George W. Bush was taking all of your money and flushing it down a rat hole in Iraq and Afghanistan. I ended those wars, so now that money will be available to provide proper social benefits for Americans”.
No doubt there is an audience for that. It sure as heck worked for Casey.
Hussein was caught promising to betray the American voters during a conversation with a top Russian kleptocrat.
Hardly a record to run on.
I heard romney sent a telegram to the Russian president sating he would concede the same stuff to the Russkies, if not more, man (punny!!).
Obama has a forgien policy record? Who knew?
Chen says, "Never trust an American communist to save you from a Chinese communist."
Did he really say that?
Not yet, but I am sure he is thinking it. Actually, I imagine he doesn’t realize that Hillary and Barack have far more in common with the Chicoms than with him.
If he wants to win he’ll go out of his way not to mention anything foreign policy related other than Bin Laden.
He’s been an embarrassing disaster.
