Obama has followed Jay Tea's analysis about his lack of a sense of humor and decided to add Biden for comic relief.

Joe Biden is a pompous puffed up boob and Obama is an ass for picking him. He will not draw the votes needed to win this election.

Terribly disappointing and a slap in the face to the 1/2 of the Democrats who voted for Hillary. If he was not picking her then he should have gone for a fresh face with new ideas. Instead he dug deep into the status quo - exactly going against the very thing he said would set him apart.

Obama is just another power hungry opportunist. What a surprise. I simply can not vote for him.

"You got better things to do, guys; I'm not the guy," he said.

Asked where he would be Saturday -- when Obama is reportedly scheduled to hold a campaign event in Springfield, Illinois, that may feature his new running mate -- Biden replied, "here," pointing to his driveway.

He softened up a little later that night, telling reporters, "I promise you, I don't know anything."

If you don't vote for Obama than don't vote for McCain, he has the same character flaws as John Edwards, an egocentric elitist, who cheated on his disabled wife to divorce her for a wealthy woman. He even lied to his wife about his age and that he is separated while he was still living with his wife. And there were rumors he even cheated on her with a lobbyist Vicki Iseman. Once a cheater always a cheater and lousy character and it is not surprising that he was involved in the Keating Five scandal.
Now ask yourself why was he not as he promised in cone of silence but in a limousine while driving to Rick Warren!? He is not a true republican look who his friends are: Lieberman the biggest Flip-Flopper. He tells the voters what they want to hear but wait once he is in the white house then he will sow his true face. You don't need to vote for Obama, just don't vote for him. You don't want a pretender who tells heart-breaking POW stories no one can verify, we don't want a rich over 25 year full time professional politician that is like a chameleon showing different colors just to stay afloat, we don't need another rich man that has no clue what means to make enough money to pay bills.
DON"T VOTE! DON'T VOTE for McCain!!!
Even the story about the cross in the sand make be a fake story: read for yourself http://www.factcheck.org/askfactcheck/did_mccain_lift_his_cross-in-the-sand_anecdote_from.html

Mac Lorry:

With Hillary's strong running in the campaign, Obama needed to pick a woman as his VP in order get the women's vote. Right now Obama has only a 2 point lead in support of women over McCain. Normally, the Democrat would enjoy a much larger gender gap.

That opens the door for McCain if he can find a qualified woman to be his VP. Too bad Rice is too smart to run for political office, otherwise putting her on the Republican ticket would generate a lot of support from women and blacks. Normally, a VP isn't that important, but with McCain's age and health issues his VP is much more important than usual. Rice on the ticket would greatly undermine Obama's support base.

Part of Obama's strategy has been to offer an alternative to the "angry old white man" demographic that has been running this nation since it's founding. After searching America for the very best person to be his VP, Obama picks an angry old white man to counter the angry old white man he's running against. What?. We now have an example of Obama's "change you can believe in" nonsense.

Why, ObamaMessiah, did you not choose The Kaine of Virginia? Had you done so, you would have ensured victory in Virginia, and thereby would have driven a stake through the hearts of conservatives everywhere!
