Obama to be Tested

Joe Biden has been in the senate 36 years and has, by his own words, has “forgotten more policy than most other politicians.”  He’s seen a lot of politics.  And his professional opinion is that “Barack Obama will face an international crisis early in his presidency.”  With this statement, even Joe Biden admits Obama is a blank slate in the face of coming national security threats.

“Remember I said it standing here. if you don’t remember anything else I said. 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,” Biden continued.

In response, the McCain campaign had to agree.

“Senator Obama won’t have the right response, and we know that because we’ve seen the wrong response from him over and over during this campaign. … We cannot spend the next four years as we have spent much of the last eight: hoping for our luck to change at home and abroad. We have to act. We need a new direction, and we have to fight for it,” the statement said.

I’m afraid I have to agree.  We haven’t seen Obama lead anything.  He’s been a teacher, a behind-the-scenes organizer, one who supports someone else in charge.  He thinks he’s ready, but he’s never put himself in a position to check it out.  Now he wants to learn on the job.

I think I agree with Biden.  Obama’s not ready.
