    Joe Biden - Any Thoughts?

    I think this is a pretty intelligent pick by the Obama camp. He is an attack dog and has been doing so in his Judicial Review seat. He was very funny in the Democratic primary. Not sure if he brings a state with him, but he is definetly blue collar (even though his son is one of the highest paid lobbyists in DC).

    Besides having the 3rd most liberal voting record in the Senate, and he has voted for almost every tax increase since coming into office in 72'. I don't know a ton about him, which is why i started this thread.

    he's a douchebag just like obama, but now this new politic change thing was just a scam, raising everyones taxes is what its all about now for the dems.

    I think Biden stating that he didn't believe Obama was ready to be president and that if McCain offered him the VP spot, he'd gladly take it, says a lot. I think you're going to hear those two statements quite a bit over the next several months and Obama should be prepared to be in the spotlight less than his VP running mate...

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    Anyone remember the Biden speech plagiarism scandal? I'd be surprised if that doesn't come up sometime...

    bad move...
    throw a boring, old, white, establishment politician on a ticket with mr.mtv star kid?

    They should have made peace with Hillary. Seriously.
    I really think Obama could have pulled this thing off with the female vote in his camp.

    He's still gonna "Pull it off".Mccain has no chance of actually winning this thing.And I assume he's gonna pick someone crustier.Its a shame,because I was a huge Mccain fan until he started opening his mouth.He's beyond out of touch.

    That's true. Really.
    and I don't see McCain's choice for VP making a heck of a lot of difference. They're all pretty much old white establishment types. Only maybe Condoleezza Rice would put a huge dynamic into the ticket, and that's just not going to happen, I guess.

    I think it would make some waves and possibly get him elected easier if he picked Ron Paul.

    then why is mccain a bit ahead in the polls?
    there still is a large part of america that still have values, and they do go out and vote, so obamas chances are fading away.

    His speech made him stupid when he talked about steroids. It seemed like he brought up his own experiences of not being good enough in sports as a scapegoat for steroid abuse.

    No offense,but you come off as having a very narrow minded, old timers philosophy that The Dems are all liberals who are gay and worship the devil,and the Reps are good moral christians.I know your not that naive bro.Theres no way anyone could be that close minded.But at least someone like myself has always voted for who he felt was the best candidate regardless of party.In each of your posts you bash the Democratic party.Why?Were you raised that way?I mean,I voted for Bush twice,I wanted to go to war,I like apple pie and american made vehicles.But even though Im not a Mccain fan,I dont spend all my time bashing him or calling him a "Douchebag".I respect the hell out of what he went through as a prisoner of war(as did my uncle),but thats not enough for me to elect him.

    Obama could have pick Christ for VP and you would be talking about him taxing the rich in the New Testament.

    I won't be surprised if the pundits edit the Bible to include Obama as the messiah come back to earth. We'll see how much better off we are in 4 years once Obama gets in. I'll admit I was wrong if things are going better, but I have a funny feeling if they aren't you'll be blaming Republicans for fillibustering or it'll be Bush's fault , but no way will it be Obama's fault or Democrat led Congress. By the way, how has the first 2 years of a Democrat led Congress been?

    People like you are the reason democracy doesn't work.

    You have to laugh at the comment before about people voting McCain because they have values. Of course by values they mean 'won't vote for a ******'.

    Jeeze for someone who is a tree hugging, societal leech socialist you really throw the "N" word around. This is like the 3rd thread you use it, in addition to calling asian people "orientals". I didn't realize socialists were skinheads too.

    Why is it that whenever someone has an opinion, and that opinion isn't the same as yours, then suddenly the person is one (or all) of the following:

    1) Divides the country

    2) bad for democracy

    3) unpatriotic

    4) just plain stupid


    Anelka, this is a forum. People have opinions. Opinions are not right or wrong, they are opinions. This is not a publication. No one here pretends to state facts (okay, maybe some actually pretend that, haha).
    Granted, I understand that you thinking that someone's opinion is bad for democracy is an opinion in itself, but I personally find that statement to be an oxymoron. When people have differing perspectives, that is GOOD for democracy.

    i try to be open minded but i dont like the way the dem party is going, dont like the tree hugging they have been doing which realy hurts the economy, dont like they way they want to tax more, dont like the were they stand on the abortion issue, dont like the way they are trying to limit firearms, and dont like where they stand on the aboriton issues.

    why i like mccain over obama, is because e wants to lower taxes for every one and boost revunes, wants energy independes and to expand it and to lower the cost of energy while obama wants to limit energy and tax it more
    also where he stands on abortion and guns compard to obama.
    now i know mccain is like any polition and might say allot but not do much, but if he does half the things he says he is going to try and do, it will be better then if obama does some of the stuff he says he's going to do.
