Thank goodness for Vice President Joe Biden. In one of the few amusing parts of the Wanda Sykes comedy routine at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, she said: "God forbid that Joe Biden falls into the hands of terrorists....We're done. Oh, they won't even have to torture him. All they have to do is go, 'How's it going, Joe?'"

Indeed. It seems that all a reporter has to do to find out about the pickle Barack Obama's is really in over his promise to close the Guantanamo Bay prison is to ask the veep, who was talking to the press at Camp Bondsteel in Kosovo on the final day of his trip to the Balkans.

So will Obama fulfill his vow - announced amid great fanfare in an executive order on day two of his presidency - to close the facility by January 2010? "I think so," Biden responded, according to Newsweek's Holly Bailey.

So perhaps he will. Or perhaps not. We'll see.

Biden continued: "But, look, what the president said is that this is going to be hard. It's like opening Pandora's Box. We don't know what's inside the box."

He also said that "to the best of my knowledge" the number of prisoners "who are a real danger who are not able to returned or tried" has "not been established" by the Obama administration.

So he basically just confirmed his predecessor Dick Cheney's analysis that the decision was taken "with little deliberation, and no plan".

For those citizens who might be a tad concerned about hardened Islamist fighters being housed in jails on the American mainland, the veep suggested they should visit the Unabomber or Richard Reid at the Colorado's Supermax.

"There's a bit of a hysteria about, well, my God, these guys are so dangerous. Go to some maximum security cells if you want to know some dangerous people. Matter of fact, it might be an awakening to them."

Got that? Stop being hysterical and go buy a Greyhound ticket to the Supermax.

Rest assured though, Biden said that during his visits to Bosnia, Serbia and Kosovo he'd discussed "the prospect of a detainee coming back to the region".

That's "a detainee", singular. There are currently some 240 at Gitmo.

Of course, the vice-president might have it all wrong. He prefaced his remarks by stating that he was "out of the loop".


Can you believe there are people old enough to vote in this country that are so fcking STUPID that they put this idiot in office?

He's the second most powerful man in the world, anyone that voted for him should lose their right to vote.:)sphss:)sphss:)sphss:)hand

And that, above all, is what worries me the most about the future of this country.

Are you kidding me? That IS bobs(soros) insurance policy. Had bob picked hilda, he wouldn't have made it 100 minutes, let alone 100 days. Don't kid yourself for New York Minute, the selection of Biden was no accident.

What worries me is the lack of brain power the voting public has.
How in the hell can a carpet bagging snake oil salesman with no validated birth certificate get elected as Pres. of the most powerful country on Earth?

That fact speaks volumes about how far our society has slipped from our own roots as a Country.
PC bullsh*t, socialist leanings, liberal teachings in our schools, more rights for illegals' than our own citizens, our POS Pres. APOLOGIZING for us being Americans.
APOLOGIZING!!!
I just can't freaking believe it!
Someone please explain to me how a psychopathic liar from a district that is basically a freak show with a handful of voters can be "the most powerful woman in America"? (Sorry district 8 peeps on here, I know there are a few normal people who live there)

The voting majority apparently wants this country to fall in line with the rest of the socialist euro way of life. Apparently they (We) have forgotten, or have never been taught, what it is that makes us America to start with.
That is what scares me about this countrys' future.
