What do you think the Obama Crisis will be (according to Biden)?

Nuclear attack on US?
Israel will get nuked by Islamists?
Terrorist attack on US (non-nuke) - maybe chemical/biological?
Declaration by Obama USA is now part of North American Union (NAU)?
UN will take over US sovereignty?
Major war overseas?
Collapse of the US stock market/Great Depression, part II.
Massive taxation of Middle class and the final nail on the coffin of the middle class?

The possibilities are endless for the kinds of catastrophes that Obama and a liberal Congress can cause the US. Without any doubt, Obama will trigger a series of disasters, including economic and foreign relations.



Question is: What will it be, how bad will it be, and how horribly will Obama damage this country with his response (if any)??

Probably the same crisis that would face McCain.

Only Obama will handle it much better than McCain would have (McCain's approach to all crises being to basically run around like a headless chicken).

Ditto on "Obama's Crisis" being exactly whatever McCain would get.

We're already in one crisis (the economy), we're also at war. It doesn't take much of a crystal ball to know that within 6 months of the inauguration something will hit the fan.

Hopefully, the new President--and the country-- will rise to whatever the challenge is.

My fear is that this election has been so divisive that no matter which candidate wins, half the country will dogmatically oppose any action a new administration takes to address a crisis.

Sad.

I tend to think that because he is a man of color that Obama just may be given a pass. Keep in mind that the majority of the world (even though they cannot vote) is looking forward to an Obama presidency. The world wide anger and hatred of America was established and fueled by the ignorance of war mongering, oil and power hungry white republican presidents past and present.

I would even go so far as to say that if elected to office, for however long Obama serves, the global terrorists will refrain from any attacks on American soil.

Not likely. Russia and China have nuclear weapons for defense to prevent an attack by the US.

Islamists don't have nukes.

Chemical/biological weapons have limited radius, are difficult to transport and disperse. That's why most countries have abandoned them.

With the absence of activity in Canada and Mexico, that would be a "no."

Not likely. The military is full of classical conservatives and classical liberals, not neo-cons and neo-liberal institutionalists.

Well, let's see. The Reagan relieved the Lincoln and the Lincoln is now in port and will be for the next 6 months at least. The Roosevelt was parked off the coast of Somalia to threaten, bully, harass and intimidate the Somalians, but it has now moved off toward the Arabian Sea. The Washington is cruising the Sea of Japan, but it could slip off to Diego Garcia, and from there it could be in striking distance in 3 days. The Stennis is playing war games somewhere out between California and Hawaii but it has a deployment schedule for January but I don't know where. The Truman is in port but it has a planned deployment in early January, but again I don't know where yet. The Eisenhower is in the west Atlantic probably shadowing a Russian surface group headed for Venezuela.

So sure, that's a possibility, with the Reagan and Roosevelt on station, the Stennis could head to WESTPAC to cover for the Washington while it slips off undetected to the Arabian Sea, or the Truman could deploy there. Figure about 2 weeks to transit the Atlantic, Mediterranean, Suez Canal, Red Sea and enter the Arabian Sea.

For those of you who remember the Ossetia-Georgia-Russian thing, I told you no carriers were deploying there.

I was right. Again. As usual.

I don't know if the US will attack, but that's where the carriers are now. The only question is the Stennis and Truman deployments in January. I'll contact sources to see if they know yet. The Truman crew is on stand-by for alert status.

Stock market collapses do not and have never caused a recession or depression. To your homework or refrain from making false claims.

The true crisis will be if, God forbid, he is elected. Anything else will pale in comparison.

Could be a lot of things...

First the stock market will plunge if Obama will win and small businesses will not seek to hire more people. So the economy will not grow but stay the same or even worse.....etc....

So far, you're the winner.
