Don’t Know Much About History

No, seriously, our Vice President knows next to nothing about history.  Speaking about the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, ole Joe said:

“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 he was there.”

William Tecumseh Sherman, George Washington, Robert E. Lee, Dwight Eisenhower, Napoleon Bonaparte, Winston Churchill, and Ulysses S. Grant could not be reached for comment, but surely they would have agreed.

Sure was a good thing we didn’t elect that idiot Sarah Palin, or else we would have had a Vice President who continuously made completely idiotic remarks.

    Quick someone ask Obama to spell “audacious.”

    At least, Uncle Biden isn’t what his liberal allies called Governor Palin.

    Starting 1512 (2012 – 500 = 1512) off the top of my head:

    Hernan Cortez

    Francisco Pizarro

    Ferdinand Magellan

    Ponce de leon

    Henry Hudson

    John Cabot

    the Pilgrims

    The Minute Men at Lexington and Concord

    Ethan Allen and the Green Mountain boys capture of artillery at Ticondaroga and haul it by hand and oxen to Boston

    Doolittle’s air raid on Tokyo

    Enough!

    When he needs to quit government quarters next January, he will be over-qualified to be a college professor.

  • Sam Houston, who led a Texan Army, outnumbered more than two to one by Santa Anna’s Mexican soldados, to an overwhelming victory at San Jacinto has an appropriate quote for Biden:

    “The benefits of education and of useful knowledge, generally diffused through a community, are essential to the preservation of a free government.”

  • PM says:

    The Admin doesn’t care because no one will report gaffs or attitude to their voters, they are immune to accountability, above what they legislate (mandate), set for life, and having laughs at the expense of their religion, peoples’ concerns, and the integrity of their own party, and last, but not least along with other things, the country they swore to serve. Dressed for success.

    this is so un-newsworthy….big deal and btw Palin said enough idotic things during the campaign to make up for the fact that she’s not the VP.
    they are all idiots…all of them!

  • T. Shaw says:

    I think we agree that in the “audacity” department, killing OBL was not up there in the top 1,000 audacious acts of the past 500 years.

    What were the risks?

    Losing 40 to 50 men each one far more valuable than anyone in the WH. And, more vital to the gangsters: bad press.

    Where does it stand in its benefits for we the people? I doubt it makes the top 1,000.

    FD: The issue is the losers and their ideologies that are wrecking America not about the Alaska Governor who left her state richer than the rest of the country.

    Really? If she said so many, you should have been able to name, oh, a half-dozen of those idotic things off the top of your head.

    P.S. Don’t mention “I can see Russia from my house” because Tina Fey said that, not Governor Palin.
