Obama's Running Mate from Delaware?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Delaware Association of REALTORS®

My husband who reads newspapers and watches news sometimes until 2:00 am told me this morning that Obama has probably picked Delaware Senator Joe Biden to be his running mate for November's elections.  Biden is from Delaware and I am from Delaware so for a Delaware kind of thing, I am happy.

Biden has tried to get the Democratic nomination for President at least twice so this is probably a nice runner up kind of prize.

Personally, I vote for issues not for people and I still can't figure out who stands for what with all the flopping around but I do congratulate Obama for a smart pick - Biden has a lot of experience in DC which Obama does not have.

Jeff, my husband, told me Biden boarded a plane last night presumably to meet Senator Obama later on today.

Hey, Regina. Looks like you husband hit this one on the head. I can honestly say I did not expect him to pick Biden. Thanks and have a great day, Jim

I'm not sure there is too much to try and figure out about this election.  There wasn't too much to figure out with Bush from the first election (2000) let alone the second election (2004).

Our current administration had FULL control of our government for six years (executive and legislative branches) and look where we are at.

I'm honestly extremely confused on how the American people are still willing to believe that our ruling administration and associated party members deserve another four years to run this country when the results of their policies have been absolutely disastrous for the average American.  Why, after eight years of this, would we want to continue to go down the same road with McCain?

This administration prides itself in relating with everyday Americans but their policies do nothing but bankrupt the middle class while giving unlimited concessions to corporate America.  Corporate America has done nothing but eliminate benefits and have outsourced countless jobs.  Then ... Corporate America, while paying their CEO's and executives millions of dollars, has the audacity to blame their failings and lack of innovation on the cost of paying the American worker a reasonable wage. 

This administration propagates fear every chance it gets scaring the American people with social issues and raising taxes.  Have not our taxes been raised since oil has gone from $1.50 a gallon to $4.00 a gallon along with ALL of the staples that we purchase on a day to day basis?  Is someone with a different sexual preference really going to destroy the sanctity of marriage when roughly half of all marriages result in divorce?  Should we blame the immigrants who come into this country for a better opportunity or our corporations who search high and low to hire and exploit this labor force to save a dollar for their shareholders?

The American people really need to pay much closer attention to what is happening in this country before we continue to allow this administration or any elected officials who think similarly (Republican, Democrat, Independent, etc.) to be in a position of power.  If the majority of the American people want to continue to elect these types of dishonest, self-serving officials, we shouldn't complain about the state of our union.  Most people don't have any room to complain anyhow as most people don't even take the time to vote ... Unbelievable!

Yeah I was not expecting Biden either.  But after reading his bio on yahoo! he is definitely a career politician.

Oh, Regina! I'm so disappointed in you! Voting on issues instead of for people? What's going on? (Just razzing you. We heed a "just razzing you" emoticon here at Active Rain. In fact, we need lots of emoticons here at Active Rain so we can better play in the Rain.)

Regina,

I see where most of those from Delaware believe in what he has done....I hope so, he needs to bring a balance to the ticket and based on what I here....that is the case.

 

Have a safe and happy Labor Day
