Most audacious VP visit in half a millennium! Biden coming to Broward

by George Bennett | March 22nd, 2012

A DAY AT THE BEACH -- Landing 160,000 Allied troops on the French coast against fortified Nazi positions on D-Day wasn't as "audacious" as the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, Vice President Joe Biden recently suggested.

Hyperbole-prone Vice President Joe Biden, who recently proclaimed the raid that killed Osama bin Laden the most “audacious plan” in the last 500 years, will make a campaign stop in Coconut Creek on Friday.

Biden will be making a midday speech at the Wynmoor retirement community. Campaigning in New Jersey on Monday, Biden hailed President Obama for ordering the 2011 Navy SEAL raid in Pakistan that killed the terrorist mastermind.

“You can go back 500 years. You cannot find a more audacious plan. Never knowing for certain. We never had more than a 48 percent probability that [bin Laden] was there,” Biden said.

HOLIDAY ROMP -- George Washington's 1776 Christmas night surprise attack across the icy Delaware might have been audacious, but wasn't Biden's No. 1 pick.

The plan’s Audacity Quotient was apparently elevated by the reelection risk it posed to Obama.

“Do any one of you have a doubt that if that raid failed that this guy would be a one-term president?” Biden said. “This guy is willing to do the right thing and risk losing.”

White House spokesman Jay Carney attempted to dial back Biden’s remarks Wednesday, saying the VP was merely highlighting the difficult decision Obama made.

“The historical assessments, I’ll leave to him and others,” Carney said. “But there’s no question that this was a very, very difficult decision that only the commander in chief had to make.”

    The fact is Obama killed Bin Laden – Bush flew the Bin Laden family out of America while we were all grounded – not letting them be held for questioning by the CIA – he then did not kill Bin Laden and said “This war against terrorism is not about one man”.
    The fact is the Bush family has done business with the Bin Laden’s for decades.

    I am thankful for the Creation Museum and visited it recently for the third time. All of my life I have gone to tax supported National Parks from Arizona through California up to Canada and Alaska not to mention the state I grew up in, Michigan and our nation’s capital of D.C. All such parks put dates of multiple millions of years ago for when certain fossils and rocks were created and that is how I was indoctrinated from my earliest possible memory. There is no dating system that is accurate for stating such things yet all of my life these dates have been stated as factual. Give me a break! Quit crying about dates when there is no proof beyond the written history of a few thousand years. Just because we have seen micro-evolution, in a very micro way presented in science today, there is no proof that life evolved from the goo as suggested by the theory of Micro-Evolution in our classroom textbooks today. People need to open their minds and investigate better rather than fighting against a recreational park and museum that are intended to be run in a respectfully clean way for our culture to enjoy.
