You have to wonder who’s side Senator Joe “foot in mouth” Biden is on. He shows his support for Obama, and defends his experience by pointing out that the rest of the world, especially the enemies of the state will be lining up to “test the mettle” of this young senator from Illinois.
“Mark my words.”
“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.
“Watch. We’re going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.
“And he’s going to need help . . . to stand with him. Because it’s not going to be apparent initially; it’s not going to be apparent that we’re right.”
It was only a few years ago that Obama stated that he would not seek the Presidency, as he had just reached the Senate and he felt he didn’t have enough experience. And now his running mate is concurring with this feeling.
Can we afford to put the lives of American citizen’s on the line to “test the mettle” or prove that the Left half of our country is correct? Are we willing to sacrifice the blood of American citizens, and more soldiers to prove a point?
Senator John McCain was tested in Vietnam. We know he is a man of mettle, and so do our enemies, and our allies. Joe Biden has promised that his running mate will be tested with an “international crisis” and that he is so inexperienced “it will be not be apparent that the right decision was made”.
Suppose the “incident” is “international” in scope, but occurs right in your backyard? Suppose the “incident” takes place in a Federal building where a loved one works, a factory that supports a small town, or a religious school where you send your children?
Are you willing to risk this?
Before you cast your vote this November, pause and reflect on the years since the tragedy of September 11. There have been no ‘Incidents” because our enemies know not to test our mettle.
