Who is Joe Biden?

The much-awaited text message and e-mail from Barack Obama announcing Joe Biden as his VP pick was released in the wee hours of the morning, hours ahead of schedule. The reason: the liberal mainstream media--who essentially gave Obama the nomination--were told of the pick and essentially told Obama to go ahead and send the message, which included a solicitation for donations.

What does Biden stand on the issues facing America? You can click here for a Wikipedia article on his political views. Here is a summary:

Abortion: pro-choice (100% rating from NARAL)

Marriage: Against the Federal Marriage Amendment that would only define marriage as one man and one woman.

Drilling: Opposes drilling in the Arctic.

Gun control: Wants to reinstate the ban on assault weapons. (F rating by the NRA)

Immigration: While he supports President Bush's immigration reforms and a building of a wall along the Mexican border, he supports Social Security for illegals.

Tax Cuts: Opposes the Bush tax cuts.

Social Security: Opposes privatizing of Social Security.

Iraq: Initially in favor of the war in 2003, he states now that it was a mistake to remove Saddam Hussein from power.

Middle East: Supports the "two-state" solution for Israel and the Palestinians.

Iran: Supports direct talks with its anti-Israel, anti-American leaders.

Essentially, Biden is a liberal anti-traditional family, anti-Second Amendment pro-amnesty appeaser. But what does Joe Biden say about Obama and McCain? Watch this video from the McCain campaign:
