Ok, so we now know all about this Obama character right? (or do we?). Well, we know most of his life story, including the embarassing parts about an estranged brother in Kenya living on a dollar a month. We know about his associations with seemingly unstable ministers and his criminal friends, alike. We know the fresh face "outsider" is actually a direct cut and paste from the quite powerful Chicago political machine. We know he's a 'black' man raised largely by his 'white' grandmother (still scratching head over that one) who doesn't want 'race' brought into the election (scratching harder). Basically, aside from the ridiculous emails and false claims that have been made about him (doesn't help the cause, folks) we know as much as we are ever gonna know about Barak before the election. Basically he's a talented, yet inexperienced lawmaker who runs for office to make a living.
But what do we know about Senator Biden? When is the public and media alike going to vet this man the same way they did Governor Palin?
Unlike Sarah Palin or Barak Obama, this man actually has a very long record to look at. And it's not a pretty one.
Sure, the comment he made last week was hilarious: "When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on television and didn't just talk about 'princes of greed', he said look, here's what happened"
Biden clearly didn't know that Hoover was President or that television had yet to be invented at the time.
If this was the worst thing anyone could say about Joe Biden, I wouldn't be writing this blog. It's a great 'gotcha' moment, nothing more. If anyone reading this is a Bush supporter and believes THAT statement by Biden was a big deal, all I can say is clean your own house, first.
No, there are plenty of legit reasons to oppose Senator Biden other than his propensity to screw up his statements and run his mouth WAY too often.
His voting record would be a good place to start. Now, the good Senator has been around a LONG time, so I won't turn this blog into an encyclopedia. I'll just say anyone who is worried about a candidate being "a heartbeat away" really should look at his voting record. It speaks volumes.
Here is a good place to start: LINK
By all means, don't stop there. I encourage everyone to vet this man and ALL of the candidates in the race. Partisanship shouldn't decide this election. The best equipped candidates should.
