Biden's Intellegence
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 10/13/2012 7:25:39 AM

Joe Biden's unbounded id is the talk of the nation after Thursday's debate. But the Veep is also the elder Democratic statesman on international affairs, and in between his snickers, guffaws and "malarkey," he shed newsworthy light on Obama Administration foreign policy. Let's roll the tape. On Iran, Mr. Biden broke new ground, though most of the media missed it. To a question about the Administration's willingness to stop the Tehran regime from going nuclear,

The adults finally wade through the DVR replay of the Biden Clown Car Show (where the gaffes just keep piling out non-stop) and sort through the really serious stuff. Scary.

Aside from the lies about voting for two wars, Catholics suing the administration and negligence in Bezgazi, It is very apparent and scary that the Vice President of the US is mentally unstable.Does anyone want this bizaar buffone anywhere near the nuke button?

Biden acted the Court Jester and who looks to the Court Jester for intelligence? He played the part so well that no one believed he was acting the fool; he is the fool. This is the person who Barack Hussain Obama picked from the entire country to be his VP, the one who would take his place if anything happened to him. Something is wrong with this picture.

You knew Biden was in hype attack mode when he deep referring to Romney and Ryan as 'my friend' instead of the congenial McLame 'my good friend'. That aside, Joe's idiocy and lack of knowledge is slowly coming out. Not that it will do any good as the Kneepad media will bury as much as possible,but the Internet and other sources will make it known to more people than in the past.

The thought of Joe Biden as President is truly frightening. To say he lacks intelligence is to give him a pass for his untruthfulness. Which is it? I don't know, but he would be a disaster. And his is rude and boorish, to boot.

I agree with #4

Watching Biden at the debate reminded me of a person who had had one too many beers. He was loud, obnoxious, arrogant and rude. That was Joe being Joe.

One other observation. Debates are intended to be vehicles by which ideas and policies can be aired and discussed. That requires the participants be free to express their views without interruptions and let the people decide which views fit their interests and needs.

But that wasn't Joe's purpose for being there; it was to silence Ryan, not debate him. Anyone who is in opposition of truth will do everything in their power to silence it; deny the facts and discredit the evidence. That is what Joe came to do and he did it well.

Joe and the Democrat party is no different, in principle, than Islam; they don't debate, they don't reason and they don't listen; they stop what offends them however they can.

If we lived in the days when people could duel with pistols, Biden would not have hesitated to kill Ryan... to silence him. He can't do that today, but he can laugh, be obnoxious, arrogant, rude, crass, demeaning and disrespectful.

That is what the Democrat Party is and Joe is their senior statesman.

FTA: "In a clearer moment this summer, Mitt Romney said he would insist that Iran not enrich any uranium, even ostensibly for peaceful purposes."

When Romney is sworn in as president on Jan. 20, I hope someone will show him a text of Article IV of the NPT, which states: "Nothing in this Treaty shall be interpreted as affecting the inalienable right of all the Parties to the Treaty to develop research, production and use of nuclear energy for peaceful purposes without discrimination and in conformity with Articles I and II of this Treaty."

Iran's antagonists never want to acknowledge this Article IV of the NPT, because it undermines their case against Iran.

Enrichment is part of the production process of nuclear energy.

As a sovereign nation, Iran has an intrinsic, inealienable right to enrich uranium, as acknowledged in Article IV of the NPT as quoted above.

When a president Romney is made aware of the provision of Article IV, I think he will change his mind about insisting that "Iran not enrich any uranium, even ostensibly for peaceful purposes".

#3 - there was an article in Forbes in August that suggested the same thing about Biden. (Forbes Op Ed 8/20/2012.)

There are worse things for a politician than lack of insight – and the person selected by Barack Obama to be a heartbeat away from the presidency exhibits many of them. Joe Biden has problems with impulse control and reality testing; increasingly, his utterances suggest some sort of dementia.

There was a point about half way through the debate when the moderator said something to Biden that immediately changed his demeanor from a clown to totally enraged. He rose from his chair and appeared he was going to physically attack her. From then on his lips were pinched and fire flashed from his eyes. I didn't catch what she said and haven't seen it discussed anywhere. Anyone else notice?

Approximately twenty five years ago, my father (who has since passed) said Joe Biden was the dumbest senator in Washington. Over the years, I've been reminded many times how accurate my Dad was. The debate on Thursday was the crowning glory/swan song for Joe the Clown. And I'm being polite by calling him a clown. There's another word that better describes him.

Obama's very first decision to select this idiot as his running mate is a small example of all the bad decisions he's made in the past four years. Thursday night should have made it crystal clear to those doubting voters that they have a double reason to vote for Mitt Romney on November 6th, not only to replace Obama as POTUS, but also, to get rid of Joe the Clown.

I'm scared after watching this debate. If Biden, or anyone else in our government thinks that making a bomb out of highly enriched uranium is hard they are delusional. Back in the Manhattan Project days they built huge facilities in Hanford, WA and Oak Ridge, TN to produce fissile material. The bomb dropped on Hiroshima ("Little Boy")used a naval gun barrel to shoot one piece of the uranium onto the other by means of chemical explosives. It produced an explosion of 16 KT and killed 150,000 people.

In February 1945, the specifications for the bomb were completed (model 1850). The bomb, except for the uranium payload, was ready at the beginning of May 1945.

That's three months, folks.

Senate panel votes to release
CIA interrogation report
Washington Post, by Greg Miller and Adam Goldman    Original Article
Posted By: toledo- 4/4/2014 7:47:36 AM     Post Reply
The Senate Intelligence Committee voted Thursday to make public a long-awaited report that concludes that the CIA’s use of brutal interrogation measures did not produce valuable intelligence and that the agency repeatedly misled government officials about the severity and success of the program. The decision, opposed by three Republicans on the panel, means that the findings will be sent to the White House and the CIA, putting the agency in the awkward position of having to declassify a document that delivers a scathing verdict on one of the most controversial periods in its history.

Japan recently turned over to the United States enough weapons-grade nuclear material to make dozens of nuclear bombs. This was one of President Barack Obama’s few foreign policy “successes,” as part of his nuclear-disarmament initiative. But his foreign-policy successes may be more dangerous than his “failures.” Back in 2005, Senator Barack Obama urged the Ukrainians to drastically reduce their conventional weapons, including anti-aircraft missiles and tons of ammunition. Ukraine had already rid itself of nuclear missiles, left over from the days when it had been part of the Soviet Union. Would Vladimir Putin have sent Russian troops so boldly into Ukraine

After Travon Martin was killed, President Obama interjected himself into the controversy by saying, "If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon." His critics picked up with that statement and use it to refer to any criminal incident involving black youths. The mainstream media, ever-supportive of Obama, neglects to publicize any such event and only local newspapers are reporting the increasing meaningless and violent attacks against white victims. It may be unfair to equate these miscreants as children of Obama, who does have two lovely daughters, but he has only himself to blame for ignoring the harm his

I don’t get all the claims of radical environmentalism in Noah. I saw it last night. I did not draw out of it the environmentalism. In the movie, Noah took the position that all mankind had corrupted the earth with sin and God intended to wipe them all out. Noah presumed God would wipe him and his family out too once all the animals were saved. Sure, Noah was a vegetarian and the bad guys are meat eaters who do to the earth what Saruman did, but I don’t really see the whacked out radical environmentalism. It’s more thematic of

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.
