Since When Do We Reward the Losers?
Should we be concerned that Biden is a self-professed expert on foreign
affairs because of his 35 years in the Congress? Is he so astute because
of his years in Congress? I'd be concerned that maybe his judgment does
not match his experience. After-all, it was Biden would propose splitting up
Iraq into three divisions, separating the Sunni, the Shiite and the Kurds
and having these differences fester and amplify themselves as partitioned
states - which would have the effect of weakening Iraq and making it even
more vulnerable to attack by Iran or other enemies and ultimately more
carnage. This was Joe Biden's solution. John McCain's solution was to
increase the military and win the war. McCain's solution was undisputably
the correct choice.
John McCain has also been in congress a long time but he has the instinct
and the wisdom to make the right choices. Joe Biden on the other hand was
hardly a blip in the run up to the presidency, a run he lost big.
Since when do we reward the losers?
Biden has a history of wrong choices. McCain has a history of right
choices. Hillary Clinton appealed to Democrats on the basis of experience,
but seriously who can claim she had any, except as the wife of a
philanderer and president? Palin has the experience Clinton would have
like to claim. But Hillary was my pick because she was running in
opposition to Barack Obama who is not only inexperienced, he is also a
fake and as mentioned so many times it has become trite, nevertheless I
will say it again; he is an "empty suit."
Where to Hillary's credit she cracked the ceiling and a movement emerged
out of it. She won the popular vote and then had it taken away from her by
Obama who stole the election by trucking in shills to caucus states and by
the DNC who never liked the Clintons and stacked the delegates for Obama
in spite of Hillary winning the vote. It was a betrayal and no Democrat
should settle for what the DNC gave us. It wasn't democratic.
The choice is easy. Palin is the reformer and a women and more fit than
Obama and Biden. She is exciting and represents REAL change.
