Well, as the Democrats go into their last day of the convention they are anticipating their saviors acceptance speech. But let me try to understand how Joe Biden and Hilary Clinton can do a 180 degree about face on Obama's readiness to lead their party, and the country in one of the most uncertain times in our recent history.
"I think he can be ready, but right now I don't believe he is. It's awful hard, with only a little bit of experience to have a clear sense of what you would do on the most critical issues facing us today." _ August 2007 Biden interview with Newsweek.
"Barack is ready. This is his time. This is our time. This is America's time." Quote from Joe Biden's VEEP acceptance speech @ the Pepsi Center, Denver Colorado. August 2008.
Hilary Clinton has made similar claims with her 3 A.M. phone call ad, among others.
So, can someone please explain to me how the candidate with no experience 1 year ago suddenly gained such experience in such a short time? Could it have been when he went to Iraq, and only posed for a photo-op with the soldiers but never took the time to talk to any of them personally about the state of affairs on the streets?
Oh, how about the trip to Germany where he told his German audience on July 24, 2008: “I come to Berlin as so many of my countrymen have come before, although tonight, I speak to you not as a candidate for president, but as a citizen — a proud citizen of the United States, and a fellow citizen of the world. People of Berlin, people of the world, this is our moment. This is our time,” he said. Sure sounds like a stump speech to me. Since when do German citizens vote in our elections?
Maybe tomorrow night as Barack takes the stage at the Greek Temple built in his honor (formerly Invesco Field @ Mile High) the sky will part and we will all be enlightened....NOT!!
