Obama has chosen Sen. Joe Biden as his running mate:

Official: Obama picks Biden for veep

Barack Obama selected Sen. Joe Biden of Delaware late Friday night to be his vice presidential running mate, according to a Democratic official, balancing his ticket with an older congressional veteran well-versed in foreign policy and defense issues.

Biden, 65, has twice sought the White House, and is a Catholic with blue-collar roots, a generally liberal voting record and a reputation as a long-winded orator.

Across more than 30 years in the Senate, he has served at various times not only as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee but also as head of the Judiciary Committee, with its jurisdiction over anti-crime legislation, Supreme Court nominees and Constitutional issues.

In selecting Biden, Obama passed over several other potential running mates, none more prominent than former first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, his tenacious rival in dozens of primaries and caucuses.

I figured that was the case when Biden called himself a Zionist.

I still think McSame will carry the Zionists because of his warrior 'everything has a military solution' mentality. They really, really want to invade Iran and Syria. Russia was recently invited to this party.

Yeah, this is what came to my mind as well.

I'm not sure about Biden. I wasn't keen on him when he was in the race himself and am still not so sure. Remember when he said that shit about how clean and well spoken and respectable Barack was? Can't help but think of how similar that remark is to ones I hear around here when someone is trying to complement a black person. Hmmm. Just not sure. But I suppose I'll be voting for him either way. Anything is better than McSame.

For the record, Biden may be electable but I think he will prove to be bad news.

I still have hopes for Obama, I think he would like to help ordinary people in some way.

So, you dont care that he has no intention of ending this so called war on terror? Same thing with Hitlery for that matter.

As long as we get some crumbs, everything is good?

I honestly dont know what to say anymore. I'm not really angry, just feel a deep sadness.

By the time reality slam's home, it will be too late.

KILL THE BEAST.
