With VPs like these…

… who needs comedy shows?

While both Biden and Palin argued about who loved Israel more (the only foreign country they profess clearly to love, and they say that they support negotiations but won’t push policies on to Israel), we nevertheless got a few gems…

Here’s a direct quote from the VP touted as being the foreign policy expert (Biden):

“When we kicked — along with France, we kicked Hezbollah out of
Lebanon, I said and Barack said, “Move NATO forces in there. Fill the
vacuum, because if you don’t know — if you don’t, Hezbollah will
control it.”

And here is an example of speaking and saying absolutely nothing clearly:

IFILL: Governor, I’m happy to talk to you in this next section about energy issues. Let’s talk about climate change. What is true and what is false about what we have heard, read, discussed, debated about the causes of climate change?

PALIN: Yes. Well, as the nation’s only Arctic state and being the governor of that state, Alaska feels and sees impacts of climate change more so than any other state. And we know that it’s real.

I’m not one to attribute every man — activity of man to the changes in the climate. There is something to be said also for man’s activities, but also for the cyclical temperature changes on our planet.

But there are real changes going on in our climate. And I don’t want to argue about the causes. What I want to argue about is, how are we going to get there to positively affect the impacts?

We have got to clean up this planet. We have got to encourage other nations also to come along with us with the impacts of climate change, what we can do about that.

As governor, I was the first governor to form a climate change sub-cabinet to start dealing with the impacts. We’ve got to reduce emissions. John McCain is right there with an “all of the above” approach to deal with climate change impacts.

We’ve got to become energy independent for that reason. Also as we rely more and more on other countries that don’t care as much about the climate as we do, we’re allowing them to produce and to emit and even pollute more than America would ever stand for.

So even in dealing with climate change, it’s all the more reason that we have an “all of the above” approach, tapping into alternative sources of energy and conserving fuel, conserving our petroleum products and our hydrocarbons so that we can clean up this planet and deal with climate change.

  1. My point exactly! But there were so many more Biden errors. Palin seriously needs to take an English language course. Perhaps a geography course. And they both need to do some serious studying of world history.
