#rsrh Joe Biden Opens His Mouth, Osama Raid edition… wait, still need to subcategorize that one.

We’ll take Crazy-Ass Exaggerations for $300, Alex:

You can go back 500 years. You cannot find a more audacious plan. Never knowing for certain. We never had more than a 48 percent probability that he was there.

As Ed Morrissey notes, when you can’t get the Huffington Post to sign off on a stupid thing that a Democratic official says, you have gotten far out in the weeds indeed. I’d also like to add that the Vice President’s words attempt to diminish and dishonor the memory of the men who fought at Inchon; and I note that battle in particular because my own father (who was a good Democrat and Obama supporter, by the way) was one of those men*.

Moe Lane*There were some aspects of the Korean War that my dad would talk about.  This wasn’t particularly one of them, so I don’t know any more details than the bare bones that he was there; and that if he had to do it all over again he never would have taken the damned map-reading class that apparently put him there.

    WAS a supporter of Obama’s? Has he seen the light?

    • Moe_Lane says:

      …In a manner of speaking, BG5. And hopefully literally, in his case.

      Relax, I’m not offended in the slightest. That was the best damn straight line I’ve been given in the last decade.

  • BigGator5 says:

    I would like to note that my Grandfather supported/voted for Obama in 2008. Now it’s the last thing he’ll do.

  • Tacitus2 says:

    500 years? Uh, Joe that’s a pretty big chunk of time to bite off.

    The Doolittle Raid comes to mind. Dunkirk if you want to open it up to our British allies.

    What’s the intrade on Obama/H.Clinton these days?


  • JeffV says:

    The crossing of the Delaware popped into my mind. It was literally more audacious than Washington crossing the Delaware. Years from now there will be great paintings and children’s books about this fateful decision. Obama truely is the greatest man to ever walk this earth…

  • Brian Swisher says:

    I thought of the Maneuver of Ulm, myself, but I’m weird…
    It’s pretty clear that those of us here can think up riskier military ops over the last 500 years without breaking a sweat…just *why* are these people in charge, again?

  • Murgatroyd says:

    … just *why* are these people in charge, again?

    Because they are “Progressives,” and therefore they are by definition our betters. Just ask them …

  • Josh Reiter says:

    I think it was more audacious for Obama to pick Biden to be his VP.
