"... we’re going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy"

Monique Chartier

Setting aside for a moment matters of substance as well as my own preference in the presidential race, Senator Obama has to be saying to himself right about now, "Why didn't someone tell me about this guy's mouth?"

Enter Joe Biden.

Yesterday, the Republican camp was trying to score some points from speeches the Delaware Senator gave on Sunday where he guaranteed an international crisis if the Obama-Biden ticket is elected.

“Mark my words: It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy,” Biden told the crowd. “The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Watch, we’re going to have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”

“He’s going to have to make some really tough - I don’t know what the decision’s going to be, but I promise you it will occur. As a student of history and having served with seven presidents, I guarantee you it’s going to happen,” he said.

"Vote for Me and There Will Be a Terrorist Attack"

Maybe not the best campaign slogan, but I fear Joe Biden is correct.

The McCain campaign should send Joe Biden a thank you card. If he keeps talking, McCain will be the next President.

Joe, it's not necessary to play Macho Man on foreign policy while the opposition is self-destructing (this is why you're number two on a presidential ticket, mmmkay?). Better to shut up and watch the carnage pile up on the other side.
