What do you all think? Here is the full article:

Political Radar: Biden to Supporters: "Gird Your Loins", For the Next President "It's Like Cleaning Augean Stables"

No one is re-thinking anything, stop making things up.

You are obviously trying to make something out of nothing, hence the multiple threads on this very asinine topic.

Nobody cares.

Biden is making a point that, historically speaking, presidents typically encounter major international crisis withing their first six months in office.

Biden has spent more than enough time in government to know this first hand.

So I don't see anything wrong with Biden's comment.

I think it is great to have a politician such as Biden who speaks truthfully to the voters!

By the way, McCain will not be the same old 8 years. Because him and Palin will clean out the government of all the cheating and corruption.

I agree 100%. I was just repeating what an Obama supporter would say and saying that I'd rather have the same old 8 years, as they see it, than Obama and Biden's freakshow.

And that is just another of the many rationalizations so commonly made by the Obamaphiles. They will rationalize ANYTHING in the name of their messiah.

Yes, they can! I think it's part of the indoctrination, along with their Walmart-esque cheer!

Frankly, I think Biden is having second thoughts about backing up this inexperienced buffoon. He's making FAR too many gaffes for there not to be something wrong.

McCainiacs must criticize everything that Biden and Obama say, because that is the only thing they are capable of doing!

Intelligence, reason, and common sense are never part of their thought processes!

So Biden was also telling the truth when he said obama was a boy that wasn't ready, maybe in 8 years? He also went on to say that he would rather run WITH McCain as well. THAT Biden?

And those same qualities are missing in your thought processes! But, do I honestly expect a robot to have those qualities? It is our right and duty to question authority. I have questioned some McCain/Palin issues. Obamaphiles just bow and blindly follow along.
