Senator Joe Biden officially announces bid for presidency

Posted by: ST on January 8, 2007 at 8:59 am

MSNBC has the scoop:

Sen. Joe Biden on Sunday told NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he will seek the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008.

“I am running for president” he told “Meet the Press” anchor Tim Russert. “I’m going to be Joe Biden, and I’m going to try to be the best Biden I can be. If I can, I got a shot. If I can’t, I lose.”

The senator from Delaware went on to say that he will be filing the necessary paperwork to create an exploratory committee by the end of the month.

Biden, who is the new chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is considered one of the Democrats’ most experience spokesmen on international affairs.

He has about $3.5 million in his campaign account. The exploratory committee will help him raise money and gauge support. He’s already campaigned in early voting states such as New Hampshire, Iowa, South Carolina and Nevada.

He also said he thinks the administration “knows” it has “lost” the Iraq war and is simply trying to “postpone disaster.”

No word yet from him on how he will further try to relate to the South. His last two attempts have left a lot to be desired.

      There is a another Senator named Joe who I watched sit with John McCain at an American Enterprise Institute event on 1/5/07 who is VERY clear on Iraq. His clarity was amazing. So was John McCain’s.

      They both talked about what the Zarqawi’s have said ON TAPE that they will drive America out of Iraq and they will FOLLOW. They won’t just leave us be when we leave Iraq. The have stated they are after an Islamic Caliphate in the Middle East and will after infiltration will move Europe and America into Islamic dominated regions.

      I for one care too much about American women to let them wear the burka or veil. Well maybe that’s not what I care about :) but I will never praise Allah and I will submit only to women. ok. just kidding again.
