Joe Biden: Barack Obama Offers Nothing

Joe BidenJoe Biden(D-Del) has spent over half his life in the United States Senate.   No person can be a member of such a stiffling and self-absorbed institution for so many long decades and retain any sense of modesty.  Certanily Biden has none.  Nor sanity.

As arrogant and outspoken as Biden is, it doesn’t enhance his presidential aspirations, but it does at least make for good copy.

SidBarack Obamae step, in the Examiner, Bill Sammon, in attemting to explain Barack Obama’s ultra liberal voting record with his moderate rhetoric, quotes Obama  as saying:

“The arguments of liberals are more often grounded in reason and fact.”   [1]

Sammon then proceeds to provide zero examples of Obama’s imagined liberal more reasoned positions.   I assume Sammon provided none, because there are none.

Slide back to Biden, Jason Horowitz in the New York Observer, attributes to Biden the idea that: 

Barack Obama is offering charming but insubstantial fluff. [2]

So there you have it a Obama quote and a Biden analysis.

Appendum:  More on Biden’s foot in mouth disease.  From the same New York Observer article:

Mr. Biden is equally skeptical—albeit in a slightly more backhanded way—about Mr. Obama. “I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy,” he said. “I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”

Mr. Biden meet Mr. Michael Steele, video [5], video [6].  Ok, Steele lost his campagn for the Senate in Maryland.   However Steele has all the attributes Biden attributes to Obama, bright, articulate, clean and nice looking.

Then I posted a Steele video because I figuired it would easier to find than an Alan  Keyes video.  Yes Mr. Biden there are bright, articulate blacks.   They just don’t tend to be democrats.
