Biden: Weakened Russia Will Bend To U.S.
NEW YORK (CBS) ― Vice President Joe Biden says Russia will make accommodations to U.S. demands on numerous national-security issues due to a host of problems the country is currently experiencing. The vice president made the remarks in a Wall Street Journal interview published Saturday.
Biden tells the WSJ: "Russia has to make some very difficult, calculated decisions. They have a shrinking population base, they have a withering economy, they have a banking sector and structure that is not likely to be able to withstand the next 15 years, they're in a situation where the world is changing before them and they're clinging to something in the past that is not sustainable."
According to the Interfax News agency, Moscow officials are taken aback by the vice president's comments and unsure of what to make of them.
"Now that Russian and U.S. delegations and institutions have started important practical work to put into practice the agreements that have been achieved, it is perplexing why the second-in-command in the U.S. administration, Vice President Joe Biden, decided to share his interpretation of and his view on the bilateral relations," Russian presidential aide Sergei Prikhodko said.
During his recent trip to Europe, President Obama met separately with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. Obama, working to turn Russia from antagonist to ally, asked the Russian people to "forge a lasting partnership" with the U.S.
The president also acknowledged after talks with Putin that on divisive issues there won't be "a meeting of the minds anytime soon."

Too bad Joe didn't talk to that KGB bastard himself....he would have learned that keeping his mouth shut is good polictics....especially when his boss is saying the exact opposite.

Joe is going to talk himself into an "undisclosed location" for the rest of Obama's first term....SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.

I'm telling you that maybe it's my tinfoil hat.
However, I expect Obama to have enough of Biden and have him resign. Then he will announce Rahm Emmanuel or Axelrod to be his next VP. You will have a public who will scorn 'ole Joe and profess to be happy to have a "professional" in the position.

One good thing about Biden, we know who he really is.Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never, ever the same.-- Anonymous

The light of hope burns brighter than the fires of doom.
