Biden Mentions New World Order

WARREN: “Senator… I want to start off asking the same question I did when we talked via satellite last week. We were talking about your comment that the next president would face a generated crisis that would test him. I asked ‘if you believe we are going to have a crisis, how has Obama been tested in the past to deal with it?’ You gave us a long list of mistakes you believe John McCain has made, but nothing for Senator Obama.”

Last week, this is what Biden said to my question: “Let’s start off, John McCain has never been tested either. And when they’ve both been tested and state their opinion as senator, John McCain has been wrong. Barack Obama has been right. Barack Obama warned about the mistake in Iraq. He was right. John McCain said we’d be greeted as liberators. He was wrong.”

WARREN: “So, second bite at the apple. Any specifics examples of senator Obama’s experience that prepare him to lead in a national security crisis?”

BIDEN: “Barack Obama suggested we’d be in real trouble if we went into Iraq the way we did. Barack Obama has been calling for a year and a half that we need to invest more resources in Afghanistan where the actual folks who plotted against us are still living the mountains between Afghanistan and Pakistan. Barack Obama suggested we should be negotiating with North Korea, as the Bush Administration finally did getting an agreement to do away with their nuclear facility.”

WARREN: “There were a lot of issues where he might be siding on the right issue, but what I’m wondering is any concrete examples of how he’s actually impacted policy that has affected national security?”

BIDEN: “He’s changed the entire debate on policy by leading the effort to say that we in fact should set a timeline to draw down American troops in Iraq handing over authority to the Iraqis. What’s happened? George Bush has now adopted the Barack Obama plan. You saw that prime minister Maliki the guy who heads up the government in Iraq embracing Barack’s policy.”

WARREN: “Many of the polls show that your ticket may be headed to victory in November and that the Democrats may pick up a larger number of seats in the House and perhaps win 10 seats for a filibuster proof Senate. Republicans are beginning to make the argument that that means Democratic dominance in Washington, unchecked power. Is that a good thing?”

BIDEN: “First of all, we’re no where near there. We have 8 days to go. This is the most important election in the public’s life. They are looking at these races very closely. I think this is going to be much closer than everyone thinks it is. Second, with regard to the Democratic Party, this is a new Democratic Party not the party of the 70s and 80s. This is a party that has adjusted to the realities of a new world order.” He went on to say, “I think there is going to be a collaborative effort to make the 21st century an American century.”

WARREN: “You mention that you’ll have to work with leaders on the Hill, which would include the Speaker of the House a Democrat and the Democratic Senate Majority Leader. Can you give me some specific examples where your team might differ from their agenda or are your agendas identical?”

BIDEN: “I don’t know that. It’s too early to tell. Not only are our agendas similar in how to deal with the economy, how to deal with foreign policy and taxes. It’s a view shared by a significant number of Republicans.” He went on to say, “There’s an emerging consensus that we need a new direction and it’s got to be done in a bipartisan way.”

WARREN: “Sarah Palin is making a big swing through Virginia today, stopping in salem this evening. She’s making the claim that you guys are already doing your victory lap and that Senator Obama has already written in inaugural address. Is your team a little over-confident?”

BIDEN: “Not at all. Looks when’s the last time a Democrat won Virginia for Lord’s sake? 1964. I’m in North Carolina, our 10th time here. I would not call that over confident. We think this is going to be a very difficult race. I think that the reason Governor Palin and Senator McCain are talking the way they are is because they don’t want to talk about the economy. They don’t have anything to talk about. So what are they talking about? They’re talking about attacks on Barack Obama that we’re measuring the drapes and taking victory laps. We have a long way to go before that victory lap. I think it’s going to be a very close election.”
