Joe Biden calls his wife "drop-dead gorgeous" -- and it works, actually! It's what Al Gore was trying to achieve with the cringe-inducing tongue kiss with Tipper back in '00, but Biden pulls it off. You believe him, and it also reinforces his humanity and his manliness, which latter is actually off the charts in this speech. Seriously. There is some testosterone on this stage! But then he goofs up (another doozy) by adding "She also has a doctorate degree, which is a problem." What do you mean, Joe?
Scott Shrake: 10 Obama/Biden Gaffes (So Far)

So it doesnt matter when someone is against a liberal, but these same posters love to post when things are positive for one of their candidates.

But they seem to have a hard time handling bad news.

He is a total idiot. Obama knows he made a huge mistake with this nutcase.

** Just to let you know above, look at the post in the last week or so and you honestly tell me who is scared. The liberal party in scared, worried and now moving onto other issues of attack because none of them have worked.
Talk about who is scared, the libs even on this board are trying to find excuses as to why Obama has taken a 15 point nosedive in less then a month.
Obama is toast and you all know it.

Or do you cry whenever a man looks crosseyed at you? Perhaps you are 'projecting'?
Wonderboy has never looked at me ... but I would probably cry laughing if he did.

My feeling is that, among other perceptions, people are starting to realize that there are too many contradictions in Obama's messages and that he does not really have the total support of the democratic party which itself has not articulated any particular, clear message.

Not that McCain and his ticket are particularly brilliant, no one in political leadership has any clue as to the root of the economic problems facing the country, but a critical mass of people is beginning to perceive that Obama is just too risky.

Back on topic, yeah, I expect Ms Palin to hold her own in the debate with Mr Biden.

If she can warm over the British press, we may begin to read about comparisons with Margeret Thatcher who, by the way, came to the PM's office with lots of domestic but little or no foreign policy experience, yet she played a significant role in the West's victory in the Cold War.

Its seems that Wall Street is doing its own blood-letting right now, possibly paving the way for McCain-Palin to let new economic leadership come in (maybe), and even the Iraqis themselves may be setting the date for US troop withdrawal or at least a downsizing.

In other words, four years of auto-pilot under McCain-Palin may be the safer course in a turbulent situation than cockamamie experiments in fiscal policy under Obama and especially a democrat-majority Congress that would walk all over him.

We'll see.

An incredibly lame response. But then unjustified hatred and anger is a bit hard to defend, isn't it?

Smear her? Yes, I guess old Hairplugjoe will try.

Oh, just curious. Did that bio highlight his thievery of others ideas and history?

If not, since you are such a fan of bio's and of HPJ's, you might want to look into this, fascinating facet of his very interesting bio.

Biden...integrity. That's quite funny.
