Elect Obama and
"Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis"
"I've forgotten more about foreign policy than most of my colleagues know, so I'm not being falsely humble with you."
--Joe Biden at Seattle Fundraiser
A bit of Election 2008 Comic Relief:
Straight from Joe Biden's mouth (From Biden to Supporters: "Gird Your Loins", For the Next President "It's Like Cleaning Augean Stables":
“Mark my words,” the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”
“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,” Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. “And he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you - not financially to help him - we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”
Biden also talked about his helicopter ride from Hell, but was careful to note it was due to a snowstorm--not al-Qaida.
Biden also had a "Media Clarity Moment".
After speaking for just over a quarter of an hour, Biden noticed the media presence in the back of the small ballroom.
"I probably shouldn't have said all this because it dawned on me that the press is here," he joked.
Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?
