Why I Hope Joe Biden Never Runs for President
Joe Biden had the following to say during his visit to Iraq.
"We did it in Saddam's palace and I can think of nothing better," Biden said, referring to the naturalisation ceremony at Al-Faw Palace near Baghdad airport.
"That SOB is rolling over in his grave right now," he said of executed Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, who was toppled from power in the 2003 US-led invasion.
Besides sounding like a real jerk Biden -- who is known to have hoof-in-mouth disease -- reveals something about our Democratic leadership. Well actually it reveals a few things. Biden’s message reeks of arrogance and shows a lack of respect for the people of Iraq. It’s not so much that a lot of people miss Saddam (or maybe they do) but Biden forgets that the invasion and occupation was illegal and more importantly that Iraq had never done anything against the U.S., nothing at all. It also cost over one million Iraqi lives and here is Biden spitting on their graves. What an asshole.
