An interesting article from Real Clear Politics, which I will quote a bit:
After the big gamble on subprime mortgages that led to the current financial crisis, is there going to be an even bigger gamble, by putting the fate of a nation in the hands of a man whose only qualifications are ego and mouth?
Barack Obama has the kind of cocksure confidence that can only be achieved by not achieving anything else.
Flashing his special phony smile, Biden said, "I think I have a much higher IQ than you do." He added, "I went to law school on a full academic scholarship" and "ended up in the top half" of the class.
But Biden did not have a full academic scholarship. Newsweek reported: "He went on a half scholarship based on need. He didn't finish in the 'top half' of his class. He was 76th out of 85."
Biden sounds a bit like Al Gore. No doubt he will finish up in environmentalism and tour the world doing speeches about global cooling in a few years.
If the USA is to have a black president, then this is presumably the time to do it. it will certainly shut up those who claim that the USA is racist. It isn't. But there are lots of dodgy things about Mr Obama, the people he associates with and the views he appears to hold. Let's hope that he has great advisers and is as good a listener as he is a talker.
Add to Obama and Biden House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and you have all the ingredients for a historic meltdown.
Let's hope not. I thought we had that already.
