Sunday night, addressing a crowd at a fundraiser in Seattle, Biden made some…mistakes, to say the least. Of course, unlike with Sarah, no one is questioning what this says about Obama’s judgment. Old news? Maybe. But it’s also completely hysterical.
“Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy. And he’s gonna have to make some really tough – I don’t know what the decision’s gonna be, but I promise you it will occur. As a student of history and having served with seven presidents, I guarantee you it’s gonna happen” said Joe Biden. So pretty much, a vote for Obama is a vote for terrorism, and even Biden doesn’t know what Obama’s going to do about it. “Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.” And beyond that, whatever unknown thing Obama decides to do isn’t going to be popular.
“But he’s gonna need your help. Because I promise you, you all are gonna be sitting here a year from now going ‘oh my God, why are they there in the polls, why is the polling so down, why is this thing so tough? We’re gonna have to make some incredibly tough decisions in the first two years. So I’m asking you now, I’m asking you now, be prepared to stick with us. Remember the faith you had at this point because you’re going to have to reinforce us.” And since it isn’t going to be popular, Biden want us to remember how much we used to love Obama and stick with him.
“Let’s not be, for those of a different faith remember St. Peter denied Christ thrice, you know? We don’t need anybody denying us, this is gonna be tough.” Obama and Biden are Jesus, and it would do them a great service if we didn’t deny it.
“There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go ‘whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don’t know about that decision.’ Because if you think the decision is sound when they’re made, which I believe you will when they’re made, they’re not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they’re popular, they’re probably not sound.” Oh. I get it. Americans are stupid. They never, ever like sound decisions. Huh. I guess that means Obama isn’t sound, as we all support him.

Short version: On Sunday night, Joe Biden compared Obama to Jesus, promised that under Obama the country would see terrorism, that the country wouldn’t like what Obama does about it, and that that would be because the country never likes good decisions.
