So Barack Obama has selected Joe Biden to be his running mate; Biden was the most critical of Obama during the early stages of the campaign, saying that he did not have anywhere near enough experience to be president. Now suddenly he does?

Columnist Ann Coulter made a brilliant observation about Obama, who recently declared that we should not define marriage with a Constitutional amendment since historically marriage has never been defined in the Constitution. That's interesting, she said, because the Constitution never defined slavery or involuntary servitude either until the 13th Amendment was passed in 1865 banning slavery. By Obama's logic, she concluded, we should never have passed the 13th amendment because historically slavery had never been defined in the Constitution either. Obama is quite the scholar, isn't he!

A few weeks ago, Obama was asked by a 7-year-old girl in Elkhart, IN, why he is running for President. Instead of an upbeat, positive image, especially to a young girl, he said that America is not what it once was, and that he did not want this kind of America for his kids. What on Earth is he saying? How could he be so ungrateful for all the opportunity that has been given to him and the wealth that he has earned, and for the great opportunities for his kids? That could be the most despicable response he has ever made -- and there are lots to choose from.
