While it is somewhat of a challenge to imagine a worse President than the sitting one, it's not so difficult to imagine one almost as bad. Our political system is now so corrupt, the electronic media that reports on it so denuded of journalistic integrity, and the American electorate in such a dumbed down and zombie like state, that every four years the United States can only manage putting forth a different collection of what are essentially either cretins, like Bush junior, mountebanks like Bill Clinton, or some admixture of those two types.
With Democratic presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama's selection of Senator Joe Biden, self styled change agent Obama appears to not just be moving towards the mythical "center" but motoring there at full throttle. Delaware Senator, Biden, perhaps best known for pilfering, paragraph by paragraph, a speech by British labour candidate of yore, Neil Kinnock, makes little sense as Obama's pick since Biden's overall career has been marked, with few exceptions over its three plus decades, as one dedicated to maintaining the status quo. In that vein, over approximately the better part of this decade, Biden has been, like so many of his colleagues on both sides of the aisle, all in from the beginning regarding the fraudulently initiated and disastrous occupation of Iraq.
Instead of highlighting how Biden gives the lie to Barack Obama's claims to be an agent of change, all we are hearing about from the MSM is how Biden shores up Obama's legitimacy by providing valuable foreign policy experience. What experience would that be? Get back to me with the stellar accomplishments that should give prospective lever pullers for the Dems a warm and fuzzy feeling? You have until November the 7th.
