#rsrh Joe Biden Opens His Mou… Oh, crud, he’s got a point this time.

Mark your freaking calendars; this is one time where Biden’s not completely off visiting Yuggoth. Via The Transom comes this not-entirely-incorrect observation:

“I think I can say … no president, and I would argue in the 20th century and including now the 21st century, has had as many serious problems which are cases of first-instance laid on his table,” Biden said. “Franklin Roosevelt faced more dire consequences, but in a bizarre way it was more straightforward.”

Much as I hate to admit it – I’m pretty sure that Ben hated admitting it – Biden does have a not-bad general point.  Particularly when it came to foreign policy: World War II was the last conflict the USA had that could be solved with a good left hook*.  Possibly that’s just nostalgia looking back at a not-really-less-complicated time in history: then again, possibly it’s not.

*I know that the reality on the ground was a good deal more complex, starting with the fact that we had to make a deal with Lucifer in order to kill Satan.  But at least the ground rules were simple enough: kill every Axis soldier that you see until they run out of soldiers.

    I might be inclined to agree if he added that never have we had a President less capable of handling these first – instance issues.

  • acat says:

    Ummm.. Solomon compels me to disagree. These are not “first instance”, although they may be “first instance for us”…

    This simply demonstrates that our leader is incapable of learning from others.

    Aacat, I’m not sure he’s capable of learning at all….

  • qixlqatl says:

    Where DID that second a come from? Abject apologies….

  • Kowalski says:

    Gotta disagree here. Obama may have been elected in the middle of the economy in the throes of a crisis, but he did almost nothing right after taking the office to stabilize the situation. His “decisions” in Iraq and also Afghanistan were things he guaranteed he would do before he got there, and he spent the rest of his time pushing through a federal healthcare plan that the American public doesn’t support while at the same time doing everything he could in terms of federal regulation to keep business and investment in this country from really bouncing back.

  • K M Scane says:

    His self-inflicted injuries are likely in the top 5, at least.
    Failing to learn from his mistakes, ditto.
    Take away those and curiuosly you seem to have a point od sorts( I just can’t stand the thought, that Joltin’ Joe can be right about anything. Stopped Clock theory ,anyone?)
