Biden Folds Under Tough Media Questions (10/27/2008)

In a TV new interview last Thursday, anchor Barbara West asked some questions that much of the public has been wondering about the practices and beliefs of the Democratic ticket, but hence far has been too afraid to ask.

Barbara West- "Aren't you embarrassed by the blatant attempts to register phony voters by ACORN, an organization that Barack Obama has been tied to in the past?

Biden's answer- "I am not embarrassed by it, we are not tied to it, we have not paid them one single penny to register a single solitary voter, we have the best get out the vote operation in modern American history. We registered the voters ourselves, and so there is no relationship. I'm embarrassed for anybody in ACORN who went out there and registered somebody who shouldn't be registered. But I'm not embarrassed because of our campaign, we haven't paid ACORN a single penny to register a single voter. Those are the facts.

West- "But in the past, Senator Obama was a community organizer for ACORN, he was an attorney for ACORN, and certainly in the senate he has been a benefactor for ACORN."

Biden- (chuckles) "How has he been a benefactor for ACORN? He was an organizer. John McCain stood before ACORN not long ago complimenting them on the great work they did, does that make John McCain complicitous in any mistake ACORN made? Come on, let's get real here."

Wow, Sarah Palin would've been raked over the coals had she ever been caught in such blatant truth shifting. One of Barack Obama's first big "community organizer" jobs involved ACORN in 1992. Obama also trained ACORN employees, represented ACORN in court, and worked with and protested with ACORN. His campaign donated $800,000 (that's 80 million single pennies, FYI) to ACORN this year for voter registration efforts. And, ACORN even canvassed for Obama this year.

Ms. West got a little bit tougher with another question- "You may recognize this famous quote: From each according to his abilities to each according to his needs, that's from Karl Marx. How is Senator Obama not being a Marxist if he intends to spread the wealth around?"

Biden laughed himself out of the unusually tough interview asking in response, "are you joking? Is this a joke?"

"No," responds West.

"Is that a real question?" Biden continues.

"That's a question." West said.

With a chuckle, Biden firmly tells West, "He is not spreading the wealth around. He's talking about giving the middle class an opportunity to get back the tax breaks they used to have."

"We think middle class tax payers should get a break, that's what we think," Biden added. "That's a ridiculous comparison with all due respect."

Obama himself has said that he intends to redistribute the wealth, and has stood by those remarks with pride! A radio interview from 2001 proves that socialism is not a new line of thinking with Barack, but a long time foundation of his beliefs. Then State Senator Obama, talking about the civil rights movement and Supreme Court, said: "I think where it succeeded was to invest formal rights in previously dispossessed peoples so that I would now have the right to vote, I would now be able to sit at the lunch counter and order [and] as long as I could pay for it I would be OK. But the Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society." (emphasis mine)

Just last month, Obama told Joe the Plumber- "It's not that I want to punish your success. I just want to make sure that everybody that is behind you, that they have a chance for success too. I think that when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everyone."

Some days after this heinous comment about stealing from the hard-working rich Americans and handing the cash over to low-income earners (many of whom are deadbeats, for lack of a better term), Obama made an appearance on Good Morning America with interviewer Robin Roberts. She asked him if he had any regrets about his "spread the wealth" comment to Joe the Plumber. Obama's response? "No, not at all."

The infamous father of socialism Karl Marx's socialist/communist agenda can be summed up as, "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need." Isn't that exactly what Obama has been touting? Tax the rich, give it to the poor! Left-wingers are proud of their socialist leader, but are afraid to be linked with the father of the reform that they're trying to bring to America. Why can they spew the lie that "Socialism works!" but not give credit to it's founder, Karl Marx?

But wait! Barbara West still wasn't finished with her pointed questions. She then proceeded to a question about foreign policy and defense of our country. West asked, "Now you recently said, 'Mark my words, it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama,' but what worries many people is your caveat, asking them to stand with him, because it's not going to be apparent initially that he's right. Are you forewarning Americans that nothing will be done and that America's days as the world's leading power are over?"

Biden responded, "No, I'm not at all. I don't know who's writing your questions."

Senator Joe was so riled by the interview that his campaign canceled a scheduled interview between West and Joe's wife Jill Biden, citing the "unprofessional interview" with Joe Biden as reason for backing out.

Biden couldn't answer direct questions posed by a 60 year old female TV news anchor. My brother Steve does a killer impression of Cartman from South Park, and I can't help but hear his voice in my head saying, "Screw you guys, I'm going home." What a baby! If he thinks that Barbara West is a bully, how is he going to respond in negotiations (you know, those sit down chats without preconditions) with Kim Jong Il of North Korea, Vladimir Putin of Russia, or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran? If he scoffs at them, calls them bullies, and picks up his toys and heads home, American lives will be in danger in a way that I'm not sure our country has ever witnessed before. 9/11 was a drop in the bucket compared to what these regimes want to do to America, and if they are not kept at bay, they will stop at nothing to destroy us.

Keep that in mind on November 4th.
