Biden? Oh my gawd. This is the same assclown who thought it would be a good idea to divide Iraq into three separate (Sunni/Shiite/Kurdish) sections. (http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com/archive/2007/09/26/380756.aspx)
Vice President Joe Biden, who as a senator advocated a plan to partition Iraq, has been tapped to oversee political reconciliation among Iraqi factions, the White House announced Tuesday.
As the U.S. military met its deadline to withdraw from Iraqi cities, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said President Obama asked his No. 2 to work with Gen. Ray Odierno, the top commander in Iraq, and Ambassador Christopher Hill on mending fences in Iraq.
Biden would be “working with the Iraqis toward overcoming their political differences and achieving the type of reconciliation that we all understand has yet to fully take place, but needs to take place,” Gibbs said.
I can hardly wait to see how much he pisses off the Iraqi government. A leader has to have the ability to express themself in a straightforward, emphatic, knowledgeable manner. Biden is a boorish, uncouth jackass. He’s a dunce with a tent flap for a mouth.
As a Senator he was an embarrassment; as Vice President, a catastophe. He and Obama are quite a pair.
