Do Know Much 'Bout History

Did Joe Biden truly make a gaffe, saying that the new president -- perhaps he specifically meant Obama, perhaps not -- would be tested in his first six months?

Well, let's look at the record:

World Trade Center garage bombing by Al Qaeda: 37 days after Bubba took office.

9/11: 8 months, 22 days, after W was sworn in.

Even Darth Vader Dick Cheney said: "Another attack is a matter not of if, but when."

The true gaffe would be if candidates weren't thinking that. It's just that reality these days is oftentimes far too scary for the masses, or the MSM, to digest.

"Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it."
