Biden - Obama Will be Tested by The World if Elected

Biden said that should Obama be elected president, their will be a generated crisis by the world to test him. I would think that would be a reason not to elect Obama and such an utterance would come from a McCain supporter. Instead it came from Obama's running mate.

Head on over to the Hot Air article linked to below for an interesting comparison of this prediction for Obama to the reality of former president Kennedy. Brief summery; it was a disaster for Kennedy which does not bode well for Obama.

The embedded video is only a partial of the speech, but it was the best I could find. I included the text from the relevant part of the speech.

Video embedded below.

"In a stunning statement, Biden acknowledged that Obama’s lack of foreign-policy experience will provoke America’s enemies into creating an international crisis.  Biden apparently thinks this is just terrific:

ABC News’ Matthew Jaffe Reports: Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., on Sunday guaranteed that if elected, Sen. Barack Obama., D-Ill., will be tested by an international crisis within his first six months in power and he will need supporters to stand by him as he makes tough, and possibly unpopular, decisions.

“Mark my words,” the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. 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.”

“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.”

Isn’t this an argument for electing someone with more experience?  Why should we elect a man who will embolden our enemies and push us to the brink of disaster?  Biden seems convinced that electing John McCain will make our enemies abroad much less sanguine about provoking us — which is one of the best arguments yet heard for electing McCain.
