Why would you say this?  To invite another attack?

What is right with him ? It will be a shorter list. This guy is a bigger clown the Palin.

His creepy smile freaks me out. When I watch him and that grinning skeleton Nancy Pelosi during one of those presidential addresses I can't sleep for a week.

BEFORE and AFTER pics of Nancy's make-over.  But now I can't effin' remember which was which.

I miss the problem with Biden's comments. You are asked ... will there be another 9/11? The response: I don't think so. I believe the opposition is intent on smaller, more difficult efforts like strapping a bomb into one's backpack. Just like we saw in Detroit, and with the shoe bomber.

 
I don't mean to bait - but honestly how does he answer the question and not "invite another attack"? GWB literally baited terrorists. I don't see as how Biden's response is even a little bit like the answer of the previous administration.

"I don't think there will be another 9/11".

You could say, "We are more prepared, and we will be ready the next time an attack comes."

"We are more vigilant, so the likelihood of an attack occurring on the level of 9/11 is not high".

When you say, "I don't think so", it emboldens terrorists.  They see weakness.

When Bush was saying we had them running and we'd keep chasing them, they were scared.  That's how they think.  They only respond to violence and bluster.  You start showing weakness, you get attacked.

What do you use? I have a 360, but I am damn sick of getting the thing repaired. Very close to buying a PS3 so I can have the de facto blue ray player and not have the Toyota of gaming machines...

I agree, I don't think he said anything wrong. And I have to agree with what he said, a larger scale attack is less likely now because everyone is alert. You want to know how to bait the enemy and get 4,000 soldiers killed....
 
Emblazon a destroyer with a "Mission Accomplished" banner just days into a war and do a fly-in wearing an air force flight suit so future Americans can remember you as the biggest douche bag in history.
 
Anyone who says Bush knew this would be a long, drawn-out war must not have seen this in '03:

Wow. You're really reaching there. He could have said a bunch of things, but he gave a direct answer to a direct question, and the answer was correct. It's fair to say, and it's been said both by this administration and the previous one, that we've seriously damaged their capacity to carry out large scale attacks.
 
Again, I don't know that Biden stepped out of line in his comments. And comparing Joe Biden - especially on the forum of international intelligence - to Sarah Palin (re: Ron14) - is pretty lame.
 
I don't mind saying it; I like Smilin' Joe. I'd take him over about 80% of the politicians I hear spreading their bullcrap. I'd believe what he says over most of the "leadership" in Washington ... based on nothing more than a feeling I have about him. He tells it like it is; he's intelligent; he's got an opinion and not afraid to voice it, whether or not anyone else appreciates his voice. In many ways, he's aligned with GWB in my mind (other than the intelligent part ... which I never really saw on display).

I agree that Morean is reaching; mostly because the "terrorists" he is speaking of do not speak english and they certainly won't be dicing semantics the way Morean is. The difference between encouraging peacefulness and encouraging Jihad will lie in the person who does the translation - and that's a crap shoot.



Look at the United States; if you listen to Fox News you get an entirely different story on everything than you get on MSNBC. I would imagine the disparity is even more skewed in other parts of the world.

Joe Biden is an unmitigated source of amusement outside the membership of the DNC. He’s a small town huckster from a small, inconsequential state that landed in the bigtime and has made a fool of himself nonstop since he arrived. In another era he’d be the guy selling snake oil out of a wagon. This is the guy that DEMOCRATS drummed out of the 1988 race for their nomination for the presidency when he was caught on video lying, while in a childish debate with a collage freshman, about his academic record (search for the video yourself). This is the drip that lifted a Neil Kennoch (former leader of the UK’s Labour Party) speech LINE FOR LINE, assuming no one would ever notice. This is the buffoon that voted AGAINST throwing Saddam out of Kuwait in 1991, voted FOR the Iraq War in 2003, THEN turned against it (when the polls soured) opposed the surge THEN suggested that the US divide up the country, THEN claimed that the success achieved in Iraq over his every objection would be the among the biggest achievements of HIS and Obama’s administration. He’s renowned in DC for creating self-aggrandizing fables about how he told off this guy or that, all in the “brave” “ordinary Joe” persona he plays off against the rubes. The guy claims to regularly drop in on the “neighborhood” joint that’s been closed for 20 years. This clown even denies the hair plugs. You just can’t get any oilier, artificial or smarmy than this asshat.

One of the most underrated insults used today. Love it.

One, you don't get elected to be President of the United States without being intelligent.

Two, I've seen how these people think.  I've spoken to them, at length.  Including terrorists.  Do you guys know what CLC's are?  They are former terrorists (al Qaeda) that the United States pays $10 a day to police their former brethren in Iraq. 

I've spoken to some of these people.  All of them thought when GWB was elected that the U.S. was ripe for picking.  They thought he was soft and weak. 

My guess is, now they think that again (I can't verify this, since it's been a while), but they are not people who change rapidly.

Now, I don't think I'm reaching, but that's my opinion.  And you stated yours.  Time will tell.  I hope that no one ever attacks here again.  Those of you with an interest in politics and economics should read papers written by Bruce Bueno De Mesquito, a political science professor who is not a Bush fan.  He has written extensively that the Iraq occupation was an excellent strategic move, and that to pull out would give Iran a powerful grip on the region and tip the balance in favor of terror states.

Look it up, read it.  Quit reading news stories and paying attention to MSNBC, NBC, FoxNews, ABC, CBS.  They are NEWS organizations.  Pay attention to the real experts.  Pay attention to the facts.  The associated press (if you MUST watch the news) would be your best source.

Do Iraqi's and Afghanistan Al Qaeda speak English?
 
Feb 17, 2010 6:47 pm

Actually, quite a few do.  Since I speak neither Arabic or Farsi, I was speaking to them in English.

Some choose not to simply because they do not want to sully their tongues with our filthy language.  But that doesn't mean they don't understand it.

The leaders of these organizations are generally very well educated (often at our wonderful universities!).  Even the CLCs that are still utilized in Iraq speak English and are not very well educated.

Also, al-Jazeera translates.

Feb 18, 2010 12:33 pm

It amazes me our power in the world.

People all over the world watch our elections and speak our language.
 
Feb 18, 2010 1:28 pm

It shouldn't amaze you.

People generally want to do business with Americans, so they learn the language.  Americans (myself included) are too arrogant to learn a foreign language because "well, everybody speaks english". 

As for terrorists, as I said, many are educated at western universities.  Many learn the language so that they can know what the hated Americans are saying (I remember talking to one such person). 

Feb 18, 2010 3:13 pm

Joe Biden is the best.  I really don't know that he could make a cup of coffee, let alone operate as the VP.
