Joking Joe? Biden Calls Bin Laden Raid The Most “Audacious Plan In 500 Years”


joe-bidenVice President Joe Biden said Monday that the raid that killed Osama bin Laden was the most “audacious plan” of the past 500 years. Biden’s comments, made at a Democratic fundraiser in Morris Township, NJ, ranked the May 2011 assault that ended the Al-Qaeda chief’s life above the D-Day invasion of Normandy in 1944, the surprise landing at Inchon in 1950 that turned the tide of the Korean War or, going back a bit further, George Washington’s daring night-time crossing of the Delaware River before the Battle of Trenton in 1776.

“You can go back 500 years. You cannot find a more audacious plan. Never knowing for certain. We never had more than a 48% probability that he was there,” Biden said, hailing the raid as a shining example of President Barack Obama’s leadership.

“Do any one of you have a doubt that if that raid failed that this guy would be a one-term president?” Biden asked, according to the media pool report from the event. “This guy is willing to do the right thing and risk losing.”

The vice president also delivered a regular line that may be the pithiest “bumper sticker” reelection argument for Obama: “Osama Bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive. Think about it.”

  1. Last I checked the Israeli raid on Entebee (1976) was less than 500 years ago.

    The democrats love to change history depending on their needs.

  2. Sorry Joe but the raid on Entebbee and the capture of Eichmann alive were both way more an “audacious” raids than the capture of Bin Laden was.

  3. very telling seems he feels biggest risk obama can possibly take is losing second term . sending soldiers into battle to die, (after all there is a 100% “chance” that some soldiers will come home in a body bag) is not as big a risk as possibly losing second term. well at least his priorities are clear.

  4. Hey Uncle Joe. You’re the gift that keeps on giving! Just keep that foot in your mouth & everything will be just fine!
