In order to show that we have entered a United States that has truly gotten past racism, Obama chooses Joe Biden - a blowhard who has made very bizarre racist remarks - as his running mate.
Everyone should remember when Biden made his racist tirade against Americans of Indian decent. While campaigning in 2006, he said:
"You cannot go to a 7-Eleven or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent."
Why he said this I don't know. But it makes me think that this may be a perfect time for John McCain to pick Bobby Jindal as his running mate. I wonder how much Joe Biden would squirm while confronting the racist question during the VP debate if he were to be sitting across from an American of Indian decent. It will probably put Biden in one of his classic bloviating modes that will just dig him a deeper hole.
Then there was the time during Biden's failed bid for President during the 2008 Democratic primary campaign when Biden attempted to compliment Barack Obama by attacking every black person in America. This is what he said about Obama:
"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy."
Um.... Well, I guess that Biden believes that Obama is the first black guy in America to ever take a shower, so maybe that's why he won't have a problem being on the same stage with Obama? And according to Biden, Obama is also the first black guy who can talk too & who even has a brain!
Was Obama trying to sink his own campaign on purpose or were there just so few other options?
I've always called the Democratic Party of America by its true name "The Racist Party of America" & Joe Biden just confirms this. Just when the racists who control the Dem Party seemed to be losing control, they reassert their power in a big way! Joe Biden has a recent history of racist remarks, whether or not he means any harm by his racist rants, does not change this fact.
