Biden and his Overwhelming Optimism

Our Veep has done it again. He must be the most limber 66 year old around. Somehow he is able to constantly keep his foot in his mouth. Today’s pronouncement was released by Congressional Quarterly.  Biden is quoted telling House Democrats that:

“"If we do everything right, if we do it with absolute certainty, there's still a 30 percent chance we'll get it wrong."

If only he had the same amount of confidence in the President as he does in his negative prediction that the Obama administration only has a 70% chance of success in dealing with the "constellation of crises" affecting the nation. The dichotomy of Obama’s promises to lower sea levels, and such other rhetorical nonsense, with the pessimism of Biden would be amusing if it were not so pathetic. But it does serve to prove one scientific fact -- opposites attract.
