American Crossroads today released a new web video, “Run, Joe. Run” – urging Vice President Joseph Biden to stay in the 2012 race for Vice President, despite growing calls for President Obama to drop him from the ticket.
The video highlights…
- Biden’s recent work to improve race relations in the United States;
- Biden’s deeply held belief in fiscal “sanity”;
- Biden’s “support” for small businesses;
- Biden’s general competence and capability.
Best, the video does all of this using Mr. Biden’s own thoughtful words!
The debates between this man, who is a heartbeat from the Presidency (a scenario Osama Bin-Laden once openly hoped for) and Paul Ryan should be interesting to say the least.
What, you mean this guy is “totally unprepared”?
Via the Washington Post:
Before his death, Osama bin Laden boldly commanded his network to organize special cells in Afghanistan and Pakistan to attack the aircraft of President Barack Obama and Gen. David Petraeus.
“The reason for concentrating on them,” the al-Qaeda leader explained to his top lieutenant, “is that Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make (Vice President Joe) Biden take over the presidency. … Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the U.S. into a crisis. As for Petraeus, he is the man of the hour … and killing him would alter the war’s path” in Afghanistan.
The scheme is described in one of the documents taken from bin Laden’s compound by U.S. forces on May 2, the night he was killed. I was given an exclusive look at some of these remarkable documents by a senior administration official. They have been declassified and will be available soon to the public in their original Arabic texts and translations.
The man bin Laden hoped would carry out the attacks on Obama and Petraeus was the Pakistani terrorist Ilyas Kashmiri. “Please ask brother Ilyas to send me the steps he has taken into that work,” bin Laden wrote to his top lieutenant, Atiyah Abd al-Rahman. A month after bin Laden’s death, Kashmiri was killed in a U.S. drone attack.
Osama. Stand up, Osama. Let ’em see ya. Oh, god love you, what am I talking about?
Does this mean we’ll see Tim Lincecum at quarterback?
This guy misspeaks like Rosie O’Donnell eats – messy and often.
Vice President Joe Biden had his “oops” moment Wednesday speaking in a 49er-crazed San Francisco when he told a crowd at a city political fundraiser that “the Giants are on their way to the Super Bowl.”
Biden spoke at a closed event in the city’s financial District at the Bently Reserve when he made the gaffe, according to a White House pool report released today.
The comment by Biden drew immediate “good-natured” boos from the crowd, according to the report by Josh Richman of the Oakland Tribune, who was the only local print reporter allowed to cover the event.
After suggesting that the Giants were heading to the Super Bowl, Biden quickly recognized the gaffe and and explained he was accustomed to thinking in terms of the San Francisco Giants and their baseball wins. His next reference was to the “49ers on their way” to the Big Game.
Rick Perry says this, it’s national news.
But hey, that’s just Joe being Joe…
