America’s Mayor Rudy Giuliani slammed Senator Joe Biden for his “mark my words there will be a major crisis” comments against his inexperienced running mate Barack Obama.
Greta Van Susteren interviewed Rudy yesterday:
Joe Biden said during the Democratic Primaries just a few months ago that Barack Obama was not ready to be president.
Yesterday, it was reported that Biden was not confident in Obama’s experience and that he wasn’t confident that his running mate would be able to lead in a crisis either:

“Mark my words,” the Democratic vice presidential nominee warned at the second of his two Seattle fundraisers Sunday. “It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We’re about to elect a brilliant 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. Remember I said it standing here if you don’t remember anything else I said. Watch, we’re gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy.”
“I can give you at least four or five scenarios from where it might originate,” Biden said to Emerald City supporters, mentioning the Middle East and Russia as possibilities. “And he’s gonna need help. And the kind of help he’s gonna need is, he’s gonna need you – not financially to help him – we’re gonna need you to use your influence, your influence within the community, to stand with him. Because it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right.”
William Kristol at The Weekly Standard Blog adds that Biden is forecasting inaction by Obama in the face of testing by a dictator.
Let’s pray it is not an attack on Israel.
Such a delayed response would be devastating.
