A Tale of Two Joes

Is it just me, or has this election cycle been about 20 years long? Seriously. I'm not sure I can remember a time when Obama and McCain weren't running for President. We have been subjected to every manner of lie, distortion, exaggeration, misstatement, fabrication and wishful thinking known to man in the last two years.....and it took a pair of Joes to cut to the chase and reveal the truth.

First, of course, came Joe the Plumber. God bless Joe! He had the presence of mind and the chutzpa to ask an impertinent question on the spur of the moment, thereby eliciting a rare, straight answer from Candidate Obama. 'Won't your tax plan raise taxes on the small business I hope to own?', Joe asked. 'Yes,' Obama answered, 'because it's good to spread the wealth around.' Bingo! Obama willl take what you earn and give it to 'those behind you', because at his core, he's a committed Marxist. From each according to his ability, to each according to his need. Karl would be so proud!

Next came Joe 'open mouth, insert foot, chew vigoriously' Biden, who promised not one but two groups of donors that electing Obama would guarantee an international incident designed to test the inexperienced younger Senator.
"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." Biden warned.

"I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate," Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. "And he's gonna need help. And the kind of help he's gonna need is, he's gonna need you - not financially to help him - we're gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it's not gonna be apparent initially, it's not gonna be apparent that we're right."
So. Obama is young, inexperienced and perceived as weak by our enemies, a situation they will exploit by generating an international crisis. Obama will then respond in a way that calls his judgment into question and leaves Americans doubting him....his Vice Presidential nominee guarantees it. Swell. Thanks for the heads up, Joe!

It is said that the truth will always come out - eventually. Perhaps it isn't ironic then that a couple of Joes have exposed the truth and laid it bare for all who are willing to see.
