Bumbling Biden and Irate Iran
Gene Lalor | October 13, 2011
There’s a common thread running throughÂ two recent news developments.Â Interwoven through Vice President Joe Biden’sÂ politically-exaggerated prediction of rapes andÂ murdersÂ and Iran’s farcical anger over being implicated in terrorism is the spectre ofÂ the man who, in one way or another, emboldensÂ them both, Barack Hussein Obama.Â
Drudge.comÂ featured two juxtaposed, starkly-contrasting pictures on Wednesday, one of candidate Obama’s October 27, 2008 rally in Pitttsburgh showing his wildlyÂ passionate supporters overflowing an arena, the other of his October 11, 2011 appearance in the same venue before mostly-empty seats.Â Drudge’s caption: “Enthusiasm Gap?”Â Â
They reflect the reasons Joe Biden has gone off the deep end and why the equally-nutty Islamic Government of Iran is tempting fate:Â Both Biden and IranÂ know Obama isÂ a one-termer.Â As a result, Biden has lost what was left of his mind andÂ Iran is figuringÂ it’s now or never to humiliate and terrorize the United States.Â Â
Pulling the bizarre card in Flint, Michigan, the always intemperate now totally screwy vice president was ostensibly making a pitch for Obama’sÂ $447 billion American Jobs Act, which his own senate Democrats have effectively buried, when he predicted that more rapes and murders will occur if it isn’t passed.Â Â
As if that were not sufficient to scare politicians into backing another massive waste of money, after citing crime stats in lawless Flint, Biden aeemed to invoke the Almighty to attest toÂ salvation granted by virtue of passage of his boss’s original boondoggle in 2009 with the line, “And God only knows what that number would have been had we not been able to get a little bit of help.”Â
(See and hear the VP’s desperation: http://bit.ly/pkU219.)Â
God only knows but what He knows mostly is that Joe Biden has reached the end of his tether and should resign himself to the inevitable or simply resign.Â Before he does, someone should remind him that people rape and murder not because there are fewer cops on the street but because they have no respect for law and other people.Â
Iran has little respect for much of anything unless it’s governed by sharia law or for anyone unless they adhere to the Islamic “faith.”Â
Â Â Over the last few years,Â Iran’s titular leader, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, its Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and his fellow “holy men”Â have demonstrated a profound disrespect for international law, forÂ fundamental human rights, and common decency as they prepare for the establishment of a worldwide Muslim caliphate.Â
Based on their provocation in vowing to send Iranian warships to within striking distance of America’s shores and now, allegedly, conspiring to assassinateÂ the Saudi ambassador to the U.S. and murder countless Americans in the process, they must think their conquest is at hand.Â
That, or they believe the American president is such a wishy-washy, indecisive, Muslim-lovingÂ leader who is on his way out and they might as well seize theÂ opportunity before a real president takes his place.Â
Either way, and despite Saudi bluster that Iran “must pay the price,” without spelling out that price, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s bluster that the foiled terrorist attack is “a dangerous escalation,”Â without specifying any consequences, Iran is absolutely furious over allegations that it would even contemplate such dastardly acts.Â Â
According to the semi-reputable New York Times, the Islamic Republic’sÂ semi-elected powers-that-be charged that the allegation was “a cynical fabrication meant to vilify Iran and distract Americans from their severe economic problems.”Â One Iranian semi-grand poohbah saidÂ he had â€œno doubt this is a new American-Zionist plot to divert the public opinion from the crisis Obama is grappling with.â€ (http://nyti.ms/nrepjr)Â
There is often more than a grain of truth in the most outlandish lies.Â As unlikely as it is, in their desperation to cover their multitudinous failures, Obamians could very well have fabribcated this whole story as a diversionary tactic but that’s not the whole story.
The essential “story” is that, first, a pipsqueak excuse for a nation would have the temerity to suggest it would or could threaten the United States of America by sending warships our way and, second, that it would or could dare attack us on our soil.Â Those absurdities are matched by a vice president who is so detached from reality that he thinks scaring Americans is the best route to keeping his job.Â Â
Both Iran and Joe Biden know that President Obama is theÂ weakest, most vacillating, least effectiveÂ chief executive America has endured since James Earl Carter.Â Biden is stuck in Obama’s cesspool and is treading filthy water, Iran is wading through the filth to score points.Â To our advantage, Joe will retire, to our detriment, Iran will persist.
