And Sarah Palin will read about it the next day in the newspaper.

You've got to be kidding. Biden's point is that there will be a crisis just as night follows day, and Obama will be tested in the crisis, just as any other president will be.
Here are his EXACT words:

Why is that putting his foot in his mouth? It's true, we're in for a rough ride no matter who becomes POTUS. The next four years will have a number of crises and a big one is liable to happen soon. Everybody knows it's true, so frankly I'm glad to hear a little straight talk from a politician.

So where does Biden say that "IF Obama is elected, then there will be an international crisis?". That's what you claimed he said, but the actual quote you provided refutes you. Just as I explained, Biden said that Obama will be just like other presidents (eg John Kennedy) who will be tested in crisis within the first 6 months. Please stop distorting the words of other people, especially when those words are easily verifiable on the internet.

[quote=Awesomo.2000;5770562]Yeah, it was pretty stupid that Joe is saying, "If Obama wins there is going to be a international conflict".

But just imagine if McCain was hospitalized or died, and we had Palin in charge if a international conflict happend. I would be running for the hills.[/quote]
lol! I have been watching Bill Maher lately and his best counrtries to live in....And I am looking at my options if McCain gets elected.

Biden did not say an international crisis would occur if Obama was elected. Biden said that there's an impending international crisis which will happen probably six months into the next presidency.

Reading comprehension: learn it.

I guess the original intent of this thread has taken a turn to reason.
Biden vs. Palin running the country

First of all, Joe Biden said "international crisis" not "international conflict". There is a difference. Secondly, Joe Biden is incredibly honest. The bush administration has led the country into one conflict/crisis after another. Obama is going to have to make tough decisions, and I don't mean telling the country to "go shopping" like bush did after 9/11 or giving tax breaks when the country's at war. Obama is going to call for sacrifice on the part of the American people and his poll numbers may go down. Joe's just telling the truth.

Is OBAMA already planning LACK of action for the first 6 months in office??????

Is he going on a vacation for the first 6 months or something?????

Or is he going to continue to YACK for the first six months of office and DO NOTHING??????

I think Biden wants a vacation for the first 6 months.


___________________________

Every employee is tested during the first 3-6 months or even the first year on the job to see if they can to the job that they promised to do and claimed they are qualified to do.
It is called the PROBATIONARY PERIOD!!!!!

Why is Biden seeking help for this PROBATIONARY PERIOD? This happens to every working American who is newly hired!!!!
