Newsweek - 12 Oct 09 - Fawning Over Joe Biden?

The advantage to following good old Joe "5-Deferment" Biden’s advice is, when President Obama loses both our wars through inadequate resourcing, he can always blame it on this crack Military Expert’s advice. I know Joe "5-Deferment" Biden is the COWARD I would always turn to when it comes to advice on Military Strategy.

Then again, this fawning Newsweek Biden article does at least allow as how this COWARD “has not always showed the most clear-eyed judgment. In 1990 he voted against American involvement in the first Gulf war, which turned out to be a relatively low-cost success, whereas he voted for the invasion of Iraq, which turned into a near fiasco. He opposed the 2007 Iraq surge, which rescued the American effort from near defeat.” Also, wasn’t he the clown advocating splitting Iraq into three separate countries?

By placing the management of both our two Wars in good old Joe "5-deferment's" portfolio, the President might have already strongly sent the message he isn't interested in winning either of them.

Must admit “5-Deferment” Joe did demonstrate some degree of Military Expertise by the way he deftly avoided any brush with armed conflict during his youth when he successfully dodged the Vietnam draft (he and Dick Cheney did everything short of maiming themselves which neither had the guts to do – I guess it’s a prerequisite for VP). By contrast here Biden makes "W" look like a war hero! (For the record, Bush flying antique Air National Guard Convair F-102s was probably in more danger than I was during an extended CIB-earning tour in Vietnam!).

This COWARD is the reason every American should pray each evening for Obama's good health! He will go down in history as the dumbest and most inept vice president of all times; here by contrast he makes Palin look smart and Dan Quayle absolutely brilliant.

Fortunately, the other role President Obama has assigned this clown is that of designated "butt of jokes" for the late night comedians -- one for which he is eminently well qualified and ideally suited. I hope he devotes his attention to this role and leaves running Wars to the Pros like GEN McChrystal and GEN Petraeus.
