Barack Obama has chosen Joe Biden!

In my estimation, Barack Obama could not have picked a better running mate in his bid for the American presidency.

I took this photo in July. Senator Joe Biden is shown on the left, next to Senator Lugar (center) and Senator Hagel (right).

These ranking members of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations were discussing the situation in Iran. Senator Joe Biden is Chairman of the committee.

Biden is one of his party's most experienced US foreign policy experts. He is also a veteran of presidential politics, lauching his first campaign for the presidency in 1987 and his most recent one in 2007.

Biden has been a US Senator for Delaware since 1973 when was only thirty, making him the fifth youngest senator in US history (30 is the minimum age for senators).


  1. is it at all that surprising?

    surely Obama couldn't possibly climb that high if he was really "from the people"! not at all. he is lobbied by powerful dudes and for very precise and exact agenda. he is on the leash perhaps even more than clown Bush is !

    >>> look at how Barak Obama has become the voice of the Council on Foreign Relations, one of the propaganda organs of the old liberal Washington establishment <<<

    From Kennedy to Obama: Liberalism's last fling

    >>> Despite claiming that his campaign wealth comes from small individual donors, Obama is backed by the biggest Wall Street firms: Goldman Sachs, UBS AG, Lehman Brothers, J P Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley and Credit Suisse, as well as the huge hedge fund Citadel Investment Group... the top five contributors to the Obama campaign are registered corporate lobbyists.

    What is Obama’s attraction to big business? Precisely the same as Robert Kennedy’s. By offering a “new”, young and apparently progressive face of the Democratic Party – with the bonus of being a member of the black elite – he can blunt and divert real opposition. That was Colin Powell’s role as Bush’s secretary of state. An Obama victory will bring intense pressure on the US anti-war and social justice movements to accept a Democratic administration for all its faults. If that happens, domestic resistance to rapacious America will fall silent.

    America’s war on Iran has already begun... None of these piracies and dangers has raised a whisper in the presidential campaign, not least from its great liberal hope.

    Moreover, none of the candidates represents so-called mainstream America. In poll after poll, voters make clear that they want the normal decencies of jobs, proper housing and health care. They want their troops out of Iraq and the Israelis to live in peace with their Palestinian neighbors. This is a remarkable testimony, given the daily brainwashing of ordinary Americans in almost everything they watch and read.

  3. Biden will cause no less mess than Bush !

    VP choice Biden unpopular in Iraq for autonomy plan

    >>>> Delaware senator Biden unveiled his plan to divide Iraq into a federation of autonomous Sunni, Shi'ite and Kurdish zones at a time when sectarian killing in Iraq was out of control and getting worse. <<<<

    either he is completely ignorant or entirely intentionally thorough in pushing such plans !

    because he is perfect example of what Scott Ritter exposes - IGNORANCE !!!!!

    I bet he will not even bother to listen to competent people like Ritter (who was marine intelligence officer himself and than in UN inspection team on WMD in Iraq), what to speak of acting properly upon it.

    Scott Ritter in Conversation With Robert Scheer

    We live in this giant globe. We are 300 million people and there are 6.8 billion others out there? And we’re dictating the codes, the coexistence? One of the problems is—and I come back—ignorance.

    The American people are some of the most ignorant people you’re going to meet on the face of the Earth about the world we live in. That’s the bottom line.

    from the commentaries on this interview, as well as from words of Rob Scheer it is clear how much people who listen to Ritter are grateful for his COMPETENT TRUTH !
    and many say something like: Ritter for PRESIDENT !

    well, at very least, I think - he would MUCH BETTER VP than Biden.
    perhaps he might be a bit too young for a president.

    and imagine if Ron Paul could be a President and Ritter his VP - wouldn't that be some start, huh? ;) but no - Americans will be led to the end by Lib. Dems to continue war-mongering, and may be at the last moment be fooled in elections once again by Repugs as Bush did before !
