Biden for Obama VP

with 35 comments

Several sources make this Biden story look good now?  Barry, where is my text message?  Why did I have to learn this on the street?

But does anyone care where Biden was just one year ago?

ABC’s George Stephanopoulos: “You were asked is he ready. You said ‘I think he can be ready, but right now I don’t believe he is. The presidency is not something that lends itself to on-the-job training.'”

Sen. Biden: “I think that I stand by the statement.”

(ABC’s “This Week,” 8/19/07)

This is going to be fun!

Obama Against Born Alive Infant Protection Act (BAIPA)

with 6 comments

Basically this is passed along without comment. 

But was Obama thinking about these children who survived abortions when he is famously quoted as saying, “We still don’t abide by that basic precept of Matthew that whatever you do for the least of my brothers, you do for me.”

Is Evan Bayh Obama’s VP? Look’s Like It

Evan Bayh

Evan Bayh, Obama VP?

Of course this could be a mistake.  At this point the story is coming from ShotsOnTheHouse.com

Would liberals accept a man who voted to ban partial birth abortion?  Remember, President Clinton vetoed the ban three times. 

Patricia Ireland, the leader of the National Organization for Women (I’ll spare my comments on the concept of “women’s rights) said of Bayh in 2000, “It would cause a great deal of concern about his commitment to abortion rights. Among our activists, there would be a decided lack of interest in campaigning for him and getting out the vote.”  Opps! 

Does this give Hillary supporters a reason to stay home on Obama? 

UPDATE: Giving everything a second look, there are few typos in the copy that stand out.  The word email is spelled two different ways, one with a typo in third paragraph.  In the second paragraph, shouldn’t the word ‘announce’ be ‘announcement’? 

BTW – This being a fake doesn’t mean that Bayh isn’t Obama’s VP pick
