Here’s Joe Biden arguing, in 2007, that if the president took the nation to war without congressional authorization, Biden would make it his mission to impeach that president.

The subject at that time was Iran, which sought and still seeks nuclear weapons. That threat is orders of magnitude greater to the United States and our allies than the threat of Syria’s chemical weapons, some of which it surely obtained from Saddam’s Iraq. Bush didn’t go to war with Iran. When he did go to war with Iraq, he sought and got congressional authorization first, and got UN authorization before leading a coalition of nations into battle.

Obama is pondering going to war with Syria without Congress, the UN or our allies. No coalition, because no one is willing.

Joe Biden has since lied about his Senate votes on both Iraq and Afghanistan, claiming to have voted against both, when in fact he voted for both.

But that’s tangential at this point. The above clip ought to be playing on a loop in the mainstream media, and Biden and Obama both ought to be asked about their statements regarding the Bush-era wars. Both made statements that, if taken seriously, should lead to their own resignations or impeachment if they launch an attack on Syria.

A savvy reporter ought to ask them why, in both the Iran and Syria cases, Obama and Biden have objectively ended up siding with the radical Islamist side. Just as they did in Egypt. And Libya, for that matter.

"A savvy reporter ought to ask them why, in both the Iran and Syria cases, Obama and Biden have objectively ended up siding with the radical Islamist side."
Not "ought to", but "would". No reporter has, therefore...

Democrats/Liberals/Progressives do not have "principles"; they have "objectives", moral relativism, and "concepts."

Morality is not an important concept to most professional politicians, c.f., McDonald and Cuccinelli in Virginia; Biden in Delaware; Weiner in NYC; etc. However, power, prestige, and money are important to all of them.

Biden is perhaps the most dishonest politician sitting in any office at this time. It became painfully evident when he plagiarized Robert F. Kennedy and Neil Kinnock in his failed 1988 bid for the Democratic presidential nomination; when he mercilessly and fraudulently harangued Clarence Thomas during the latter's confirmation hearings; and at many subsequent points since then.

That such a man should hold high office in these United States is a blot on all involved in raising him to his current estate.

None of their "principles" survive. Not one.

Not true -- "power over all else" is still in place.

"A savvy reporter ought to ask them why, in both the Iran and Syria cases, Obama and Biden have objectively ended up siding with the radical Islamist side. Just as they did in Egypt. And Libya, for that matter."

You'll note that the US did *not* intervene in Sudan when the Arab Muslim regime was attacking the Christians in the south, nor when they were attacking the Black Muslims of Darfur. Is it because there was *already* an Islamist regime in charge? And why is the US urging restraint on Nigeria's predominantly non-Muslim southerners as they attempt to deal with the violence against non-Muslims perpetrated by Islamists based in the country's mostly Muslim north?

Shakespeare was wrong when he said kill all the lawyers. He obviously had never met any of our, um "reporters".
