Well, there is spin, and then there is this. Sen. Obama tries to cover up for his moron of a running mate, a.k.a. known as Joe “the gaffe machine” Biden by saying that Joe likes to engage in “rhetorical flourishes”.

“Joe sometimes engages in rhetorical flourishes. But I think that his core point was that the next administration is going to be tested regardless of who it is,? Obama told reporters after meeting with his national security working group. “The next administration is going to be inheriting a whole host of really big problems and so the president is going to be tested and the question is will the next president meet that test by moving America in a new direction by sending a clear signal to the rest of the world that we are no longer about bluster and unilateralism and ideology but we’re about creating partnerships around the world to solve practical problems.?

Well, nice try Obama, but Biden was not just making some general statement about the next presidency, he was specifically referring to you! If you look at the Biden quote here, it is pretty obvious in my mind that old Joe was telling these donors that America’s enemies were going to try to take advantage of your inexperience and spaghetti-spined approach to international relations. I wonder if it is possible to pack Joe Biden and Jack Murtha together in a “straight-talk express”. They could just drive across Ohio and PA together shooting themselves in the foot. It would be a grand ole time.
