Biden warned in 2012 that Romney 'ready to go to war' in Syria

Call the irony police.  Joe Biden, speaking at a rally in York, Pennsylvania on September 2, 2012, urged voters to reject the Romney campaign to keep us from going to war in Syria. Doug Mataconis of Outside the Beltway (hat tip: Instapundit) takes us down memory lane:

Our Vice-President demonstrates his uncanny skills as a prognosticator: 

WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Two months before the 2012 presidential election, Vice President Biden warned on the campaign trail that Mitt Romney wanted to go to war with Syria.

The video, which was posted by BuzzFeed, was of Biden speaking to supporters at a rally in York, Pa. on Sept. 2, 2012.

“He said it was a mistake to set an end date for our warriors in Afghanistan and bring them home. He implies by the speech that he’s ready to go to war in Syria and Iran,” Biden said in his speech.

Biden unintentionally also revealed the poor strategic grasp of Obama with this comment:

Biden also went after the Republican presidential nominee when Romney called Russia America’s “number one geopolitical foe.”

“He wants to move from cooperation to confrontation with Putin’s Russia,” Biden said. 

How’s that reset working out for ya’, Joe?
