Joe Biden Using the old Muhammad Ali “rope a dop” On Palin

Joe Biden on CNN Predicts Sarah Palin Will Win the Debate

Sarah Palin vs Joe Biden CNN interview

John Roberts quizzes Joe Biden for his views on Sarah Palin's great speech and he mentions the future debate with her.


Wild Thing's comment..........

He has Barracuda Phobia haha

Governor Palin has him shacking in his boots. Can you sense the fear in him of having to go up against her? He just witnessed what she did to Obama. She will soon be setting her spotting scope on him.

He can’t win unless she falls apart, and that isn’t going to happen, so I think he is covering his bases ahead of time. He is no nice guy this is all to protect his butt. And he is setting her up. Biden is a stuffed shirt liberal but he isn’t stupid. He knows that he loses if he comes off mean or condescending to Palin. So he finds himself in the position of playing down the debate, chastising the media on her behalf, and setting expectations for her very high.

The game is all about beating expectations. There’s been too much hype over her speech - if she doesn’t blow Biden out of the water, it will be viewed as a failure. it is all strategy. he is over building her up (too much). he is building up excessive expectations. japanese would say “kadai hyouka”`....then the whole mass media chorus will say, “disappointment" and they will go on and on how she is not up for being a VP.

We all know she can do it, but they are giving too much rope......I don't like it. Even the man asking Biden the questions points this out. Biden tries to laugh what he says off but he knows John Roberts is saying the truth about what he ( Biden) is donig.

Heh, it’d be cool if Palin could work this into her campaign speeches and thank Biden for the vote of confidence but that she prefers to actually have the debate before declaring a winner. hahaha

Yes he's being smart, but she is smarter. This is just another transparent attempt to set a trap for her. I doubt that he’s ever really trapped anything in his life and she’s probably set many a trap line with Todd. There’s just no substitute for a home grown Alaskan upbringing.

Personally I think she'll have him for lunch.

She is more than up to the challenge. She will kill him with kindness and sweetness and if he attacks her, America will boo him. He'll be left blubbering in a rubber room in a straight jacket. He don't know what's coming! It's Hurricane Sarah!
Oh, did you hear the group Heart is suing to get the McCain-Palin camp to stop using their song Barracuda? That song is over 25 years old at least and now it's the most downloaded song on the internet! Why would you want to lose that extra income and the fact you're getting popular again?
If they've paid to use it, there is nothing Heart can do about it.
Liberals are dumb. I see dumb people-they just don't know that they're dumb.

When I sent you that clip of Rickles roasting Ronald Reagan, there was one shot at Howard Cosel, Rickles looks over at Howard and points to his own head and says to Howard, "Looks good, Howard, you really can't tell."

We all know Biden should look like a cue ball but he has hair plugs, wouldn't it be a hoot if Sarah Palin took off on that. "looks good Joe you can't tell they're hair plugs".

Would that drive the demos nuts of what...Naw... but it would be fun to watch. Just a small personal attack a little payback, if you will.

Biden accuses Sarah Palin of not mentioning the Middle Class??? She and her family are the epitome of the American Middle Class. Joe Biden wouldn't know middle class if he had dinner with one.

Senator Joe Biden is a law school trained professional politician. His world is that inside-the-beltway fantasy world of national politics. What a turd! BTW, his son is going to Iraq. As a JAG lawyer. Almost one of the enemy.

I just love it Chrissie, Amtrak Joe. I'm in tears Mark, he's vain and pompous.
I had a conversation with my daughter, she's a bit younger than the Barracuda and I'm sure they played at the same meets in school, I've been out there with her when it was so cold it was miserable and they competed in all sports. One school was halfway out near Ft. Richardson and they'd plow off the snow for track, hockey and other rough sports. Palmer, Wasilla and Anchorage districts would get after it. My kid had both ankles broken one season. Biden, one word of advice don't mess with that country girl, you'll end up like the neighborhood bully that sustaind a broken leg and both black eyes when a little 90 lb girl stood on his toes and beat the crap out of him, he broke that leg getting knocked over backwards. Bring it on Biden.

Joe Biden already commented on Sarah Palin's looks, something that he wouldn't have done if McCain picked a male VP running mate.

"TOLEDO, OH - Joe Biden is already conceding one thing to Sarah Palin."

""Well there's obvious differences," he joked during a roundtable discussion on the economy this afternoon. "She's good looking.""

Sarah Palin should return the favor and thank him for the compliment on her looks and tell him there are other obvious differences, saying that, "I will be a smarter Vice President with better judgement than you too."

Jack, thanks for sharing about that, that is really interesting and it shows how strong a person would have to be too besides playing thwe sport, just being out in it as well.

Heh heh Biden has got to be getting nervous.
