From the BBC News last Thursday:
US Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama has warned that rival John McCain would "endanger" US security.
He said that the election winner would face security "tests", due in part to President George Bush's "bad policies".
His running-mate, Joe Biden, said at the weekend that Mr Obama could face a "generated international crisis" within six months of becoming president.
So, the reason that Obama might face a "generated international crisis" is not because he has unrealistic world-views and has no understanding of military strategy, it is because of Bush's "bad policies."
Your chest broke my bullet and I'm suing you.So, Joe misspoke again?
Responding to attacks over Mr Biden's comment on the likelihood that he would be "tested" by an international crisis, Mr Obama said his running-mate "sometimes engages in rhetorical flourishes".Yeah, Biden has a quick lip. He really meant whoever was president and just assumed it would be Obama. He didn't have to come right out and say it was Bush's fault... we all know that. He didn't have to say that McCain has no idea about military action.
"His core point was, the next administration is going to be tested regardless of who it is," he told reporters.
Hey, that's old news. It doesn't matter because McCain is out of the race... no chance... fold up tents... go away.
However, an AP-GfK poll released on Wednesday suggests a much narrower margin, putting Mr Obama only one point ahead, with 44% support to his rival's 43%.You understand, he should go away. We all want the change that Obama promises. We'll be able to sit back and watch how the Triumvirate* will knock our socks off with change.
Yes, I can't wait to see how they get 300 million Americans to blow on pinwheels to generate their own electricity. That will keep them busy while Washington changes things for them.
Yes, I can't wait to see how Obama's "redistribution of the wealth" is a unifying force for change.
Yes, we have a lot to fear from McCain.
