Biden is great but that asshole over at CNN thinks the only reason there was an agreement tonight...

was because of Bidenís ability to compromise. Biden works for Obama you idiots..Obama tells Biden what he can and cannot do. Its called delegating!!! I turned off MSNBC to give CNN a go.... They are much worse!!!!!

1. Obama gave that negotiating task to Biden because of his compromising skills.

That doesn't take away from Obama's role in getting the bill passed. Obama was wise in selecting Biden to close the deal; he's experienced in working with the Senate & he's widely respected on both sides.

Both Obama & Biden get the props.

2. I heard Mitch asked for Biden.. I don't know why he didn't want

to negotiate with Pres Obama but, whatever it takes to get his little clock cleaned.

4. Another example of the President's smarts

He picked Biden as his running mate years ago partly because of his long service in the Senate. He anticipated that the knowledge and good will built up during Biden's senate tenure would come in handy one day, and it did.

5. CNN reports it's still too close to call whether anything will get passed. ( n/t )

6. MSM will try to minimize Obama's role in this deal and portray him as weak, unable to negotiate

with the "beltway guys." Until the next plane gets flown into a building--then they'll be looking for a O to display some magic. In reality, senior staffers do the heavy lifting and iron out the deals. MSM seems to overlook this fact.
