Joe Biden Terrifies Everyone With Promises Of Unpopular, Warmongering Obama Presidency

by Sara K. Smith

Holy crap there will be war everywhere!What is this weirdness? Joe Biden was talking to some supporters this weekend, at a fundraiser, about how Barack Obama will basically turn into a totalitarian dictator after he’s elected, just like Hercules did when he rinsed all the horseshit out of Washington by diverting a few rivers. Plus there will probably be another war or something, which Obama supporters will have to get behind.

“It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. … Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”

“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,” Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. “And he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you – not financially to help him – we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”

[...] “This president, the next president, is gonna be left with the most significant task. It’s like cleaning the Augean stables, man. … There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go, ‘Whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don’t know about that decision’,” Biden continued . … Biden emphasized that the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border is of particular concern, with Osama bin Laden “alive and well” and Pakistan “bristling with nuclear weapons.”

So, to recap: shortly after the mythological Greek figure Barack Obama is elected president, he will bomb the shit out of some stables in Waziristan. HE NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT FOR THIS.

Why is Biden throwing salt in Barry’s game all the time?

In all seriousness though, Biden really shouldn’t reveal the Illuminati End of Days Plan until at least mid-November.

I like what Joe said. Sure he has a rather large mouth on him, but he’s seem honest enough to warn folks that hope, rainbows, good thoughts and unicorns ain’t enough.

Shut yer yap, Biden… The plan to invade Granada is a SECRET you douche!

Good — somebody should be saying that. Now watch the McCain campaign deride him for it. Of course, those Rovian bastards are so focused on Straight Talk (TM) as a brand that they wouldn’t recognize the actual product if it hit them in the face.

Emerald City? I thought Oz was already in the tank for Barry, he should be campaigning only in swing states now.

Gopherit October 20, 2008 at 12:07 pm

[re=139819]ManchuCandidate[/re]: Amen. Joe has said a lot of stupid shit in his lifetime, but I don’t think this falls in that category. Hell, anyone who thinks Obama’s going to come in and everything is going to unicorns farting rainbows given the shitpile he’s being handed should really hit the pipe less often.

Cape Clod October 20, 2008 at 12:09 pm

“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,” Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities.

Wait, what?
Was Biden canvasing for the munchkin vote?

ABitOfACommunist October 20, 2008 at 12:09 pm

No worries.

The only october surprise that could stop Hopey now is if he turned out to still have that coke habit or secretly to be president of a chapter of Nambla.

Meanwhile, I liked biden and obama from the beginning, because I thought at least a third of the things they say is true. And this bit that Hairplugs just threw out, it strikes me as straightforwardly true.

So I say keep it up Joe the Senator. I’m glad you have a big mouth.

Not_So_Much October 20, 2008 at 12:09 pm

Awesome. When your ticket is on the verge of making it over the top, be sure to use a wacky analogy about war and a river of shit. Way to lay the Hope on thick Joey!

Dude, Biden man, yo, you’re like, totally, like, harshin’ my buzz, man.

Cogito Ergo Bibo October 20, 2008 at 12:11 pm

While I agree that Biden is probably speaking truth here, I don’t think it’s a wise play to essentially say, “Elect Barry and it’ll be like the substitute teacher’s first day in class. Spitwads and mouthing off until the kids know they can’t get away with that crap.” Especially since Uncle Joe forgot to mention that Barry will take ‘em down if they try it.

[re=139819]ManchuCandidate[/re]: [re=139821]SayItWithWookies[/re]: [re=139837]Gopherit[/re]: I’m with you. You don’t have a successful administration by telling everyone (no matter how much they want to hear it) that your going to make everything perfect on day one. If any of you believe that, I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn for sale. While maybe some of the more “idealistic” think that’s the way to go, a lot of the grownups (ie, swing voters) want to know Barry and Joe aren’t just going around sniffing pixie dust.

It would’ve been better if Biden had said this whilst backed by Martha and Izora. Or better yet, if he had just sang it like he meant it.

Has there ever been a President who didn’t have to deal with a crisis? I mean, when you’ve got the reins of the world’s only superpower for 4 or 8 years, odds are that some shit is going to go down somewhere in the world.

As for not helping. I think with the $150 Mil in the bank, the 100K at Hopey’s St Louie rally and the rapidly flailing/failing McCainiac campaign tells me that Joe could rant about past attempts at collegiate threesomes and Barry/Joe would still win by a mile.

Vewol Mevemont October 20, 2008 at 12:25 pm

It’s an obvious ploy for the votes of the end-of-days crowd. A vote for Barry is a vote for armageddon! Live out your rapture fantasies!

You know, and Joe was doing so well there for a minute, wasn’t he?
Well, the good news is that he compared Hopey to Hercules…right?

Dreamer October 20, 2008 at 12:32 pm

[re=139813]magic titty[/re]: I am with you man. In all seriousness, it is hard to be Biden in this election. Every word he says is put through a microscope and given meanings he did not intent. This is easy because the notion that he is a “gaffe machine” is universally accepted.

This morning I was watching MSNBC and they showed some McCain hack who was saying that even Joe Biden is worried that when Obama is faced with a crisis he will need help. Well, first of all everyone needs help and the arrogant ass who claims that he does not need help should not be running for president. Second, Biden was saying that because of these crises Obama will make decisions that we will not like and we should be ready to support him.

arksi October 20, 2008 at 12:33 pm

Biden’s got it all wrong. It’s going to be a lot more like having to steal the apples of the Hesperides, strictly guarded by a 100-headed dragon called Ladon.

Gopherit October 20, 2008 at 12:38 pm

[re=139850]shoeho[/re]: I’m more worried about the Republican cynics that are currently playing that exact game. To say the US won’t be facing a lot of tough calls and hard times to make up for the last five years is pure saccharine horseshit. Joe’s doing his job, and saying the tough things.

Or would y’all rather he was a Palin-clone telling us how great things are? The Dems are so used to losing, they’re as skittish as feral kittens.

problemwithcaring October 20, 2008 at 12:39 pm

President Beeblebrox October 20, 2008 at 12:57 pm

[re=139873]ManchuCandidate[/re]: Well, yes… but for some reason I started to become extremely paranoid over the weekend about a McCain win, notwithstanding 100K at the Hopey rally in St. Louis, 70K in Kansas City, the traitor Colin Powell endorsing Barry, and that little matter of $150 million raised in September.

Maybe it’s because Johnny Mac & Co are doing all they can to start a “McCain narrows gap in a few states = McCain is the Comeback Kid” meme in the media, and the thought of Johnny Mac winning is enough to drive one to hit the GHB.

Rowdy Monster October 20, 2008 at 1:22 pm

Say it ain’t so, Joe! Say it ain’t so! This is really disappointing to hear. I’m from Delaware, so I’ve seen Biden in action for a while. Biden has always tended to come off as an arrogant jerk. But, I’ve always had faith in him nonetheless because of his voting record. One place to see his voting record in full is the ACLU’s website. If you tend to support liberal causes, Joe has been on the better side of the issues his whole career. But again, this type of thing is really disappointing to hear. In tepid defense of him, maybe this is just an attempt to appeal to people who prefer Obama on the issues, but don’t think he’s tough enough. These would be stupid people, but their votes count just as much as everyone else’s.

TGY October 20, 2008 at 1:23 pm

Yeah, ‘Augean stables’ is about the size of it. Somebody will replace the ‘Labors of Hercules’ with the ‘Burdens of Barry’. We’ll get a blind bard to sing it, or possibly some sorta deaf hermaphrodite to rap it or whatever, which amounts to the same thing.

Joe Biden, although right, has the amazing ability to sound wrong. Poor Joe, born without a silver foot in his mouth. It’s possible that he’s the Democratic Gerald Ford, but that’s as yet unproven.
