Joe Biden Is Neil Kinnock Is Robert Kennedy

BARACK Obama’s running mate Joe Biden has modelled himself on which British politican from the last twenty years:

a) Maggie Thatcher
b) Tony BLair
c) David Owen
d) Neil Kinnock

SAYS Neil Kinnock, former Labour leader and light bulb head:

Why am I the first Kinnock in a thousand generations to be able to get into university? Why is Glenys the first woman in her family in a thousand generations to be able to get into university? Was it because all our predecessors were thick? Did they lack talent? Those people who could sing and play and recite and write poetry? The people who could make wonderful, beautiful things with their hands? Those people who could dream dreams, see visions? Why didn’t they get it? Was it because they were weak? Those people who could work eight hours underground and then come up and play football? Weak? Does anybody really think that they didn’t get what we had because they didn’t have the talent or the strength or the endurance or the commitment? Of course not. It was because there was no platform upon which they could stand.

Says Joe Biden, John McCain fan and plagiarist:

I started thinking as I was coming over here, why is it that Joe Biden is the first in his family ever to go to a university? Why is it that my wife who is sitting out there in the audience is the first in her family to ever go to college? Is it because our fathers and mothers were not bright? Is it because I’m the first Biden in a thousand generations to get a college and a graduate degree that I was smarter than the rest? Those same people who read poetry and wrote poetry and taught me how to sing verse? Is it because they didn’t work hard? My ancestors, who worked in the coal mines of Northeast Pennsylvania and would come up after 12 hours and play football for four hours? No, it’s not because they weren’t as smart. It’s not because they didn’t work as hard. It’s because they didn’t have a platform upon which to stand.

Want to know more about Joe Biden?

He was not the first person from his family to attend college. His ancestors never played footy, although they might have played American football. Joe’s dad sold cars. Did Robert Kennedy’s dear old dad sell motors in the Rhonda Valley?

Kennedy: “Few will have the greatness to bend history itself. But each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.”

Biden: “Well, few of us have the greatness to bend history itself. But each of us can act to affect a small portion of events, and in the totality of these acts will be written the history of this generation.”

Joe Biden – he wants your life…
