The information prompted the assertion by Democratic vice presidential nominee Joseph Biden in Seattle Sunday, Oct. 19: “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy."

There will only be one thing that Americans would not like, and that is if our policy towards Israel changes in support of the Palistinians, Hamas, Syria, and Iran. Israel is our strongest and most loyal ally. To break off relations with them would be devestating to say the least.

It seems that they didn't realize the obvious, that if the US had financial crisis, so would the rest of the world. As bad as the US crisis is, Europe's is worse. I take no joy in that, because we are all in the same boat, but E2020 doesn't seem to understand that.
Here is the link to their prediction:

What do you guys think? That Biden is a prophet and can tell the future? He's right up there with that Goodchild character.
This whole thing cracks me up!
How many of us here have said "It's coming", "Something is going to go down", "Big happenings ahead", and so forth?
WE know the near future is not going to be easy. BushCo (including McCain) have messed up our country and our relations with the world SO badly, that OF COURSE we haven't seen the full fallout yet. OF COURSE Obama is going to have challenges ahead and be tested. Every president is tested. But we're in interesting times. We're in the middle of an economic crisis.
Biden is just saying what he thinks. He's not a prophet, people. He's a Senator. He doesn't have any way of knowing any specifics of what Obama faces ahead. But I'll tell you what. Whatever is ahead, I'd rather have Obama and Biden dealing with it than an angry old man and a airhead beauty queen.

God, your posts are becoming more and more ignorant the closer we get to this election.
You're drinking all the Kool-Aid that the Obama campaign hands you, and you slug it down without even bothering to look what's at the bottom of the glass.
JOE SCARBOROUGH: Well, let us just say it's surprising, and I would just throw it back to you-all and tell you what the McCain campaign is saying this morning, and what a lot of Republicans, they're asking really a question: what if Sarah Palin had said electing John McCain would create an international crisis because of his age. Would that be above the fold on the front page of the New York Times, the Washington Post? Would that be a lead story? We've got somebody who's an expert in the media who I think, Mika, knows a lot better than we do, Dan Rather. Dan, talk about the double standard. Are there times that you would cover this story differently if Sarah Palin said it rather than Joe Biden? Not you, but the media.
DAN RATHER: Well I think the point is well taken, Joe, that certainly if Sarah Palin had said this it would be above the fold in most newspapers today.
