Bidenism: the ability to say almost anything at any time without worry about consistency.
E.g, On America after 2000: “We don’ have much of a democracy ourselves. “
On Darfur: “I’m sending American troops alone.”
Looking back at Iraq in 2005: “The decision to go to war was the right one.”
On Bush’s war in the Middle East: “I believe President Bush’s strong rhetorical support for democracy has made a difference by creating space for and emboldening modernizers and moderates.”
After the 9/11 attacks: “Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran.”
