Huffington Explains why Biden Should Resign as VP if Obama Sends More Troops to Afghanistan - Video 10/16/09
Here is video of Arianne Huffington on the "Ed Show" last night, where she explained to liberal Ed Schultz why she has written that Vice-President Joe Biden should resign from office if President Obama decides to send 40,000 more troops to Afghanistan, as requested by Gen. Stanley McChrystal. Biden has opposed increasing troops to afghanistan, and isead wants more focus on Al-Qaeda in Pakistan.
Schultz was disbelieving that Huffington would advocate this, and told her "We're talking about Joe Biden. We're not talking about Sarah Palin. Joe Biden is not a quitter."
Palin is not a "quitter" simply because she resigned as Governor for what she believed was the good of the people of Alaska. The continued attacks on her by the Left show they are still very concerned about her and see her as a threat. Otherwise, they would just ignore her.
Huffington is essentially saying Biden should "put up or shut up." If he's going to make policy statements and advocate giving up on Afghanistan and ceding control of the country back to the Taliban, then he ought to get out as Vice-President if Obama goes in a completely different direction.
