Gotta love Joe Biden:

(CNN) -- "The truth of the matter is, Barack knows it, I know, had the economy not collapsed around your ears, John, in the middle of literally, as things were moving, I think you probably would have won," Biden said during the annual Sedona forum at the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University.

"It would have been incredibly, incredibly, incredibly close. You inherited a really difficult time," Biden said to McCain, R-Arizona.

mccain panic President McCain? Nooooo!

"You inherited a really difficult time." So did President Obama, and we're all still paying for it.

    McCain is proof that there should be an age limit to serve in public office. Public service at one time equated with public duty and was expected to last only a couple of years before the public servant returned to the private sector.

    Materialists claim that no harm is done when profit is the first priority in sports, medical care and education. This has proven not to be the case. In modern times there is too much rhetorical justification for various arguments that logic and reason prove false. An idea's worth should not be based on how profitable it is, but should be based on whether or not a positive outcome is probable or proven.

    McCain and Graham looked like goofballs when they held a press conference in which they declared that a red line had been crossed when the evidence for Syria's use of Sarin was unconfirmed. The duo's knee-jerk response to a letter from the White House stated the Syria "may" have used "chemical warfare" against its the country's rebels.

    It is disgusting to observe two old men in leadership positions so eager for war when they have no possibility of taking part in it.

  • He forgot about Sarah Palin. She was the death knell to his campaign and he has nobody but himself to blame for bringing that dimwit onto the national stage. I find it difficult to take McCain seriously about ANYTHING after having done that. It's time for him to retire.

  • Okaaaaaaay... Does the Veep remember Scary Palin? McCain "suspending" his campaign? McCain's bizarre wandering around the stage at one of the debates? Yep, if John McCain hadn't been John McCain, the race would've been REALLY close!
