Warning or the Ranting of a Politician?

Reading about an ominous speech Senator Biden made yesterday, I wonder if he is giving the American people a veiled warning of an impending totalitarian regime or if he is talking nonsense in one of the most bizarre campaign speeches I have ever read. Here is a snippit of what he said yesterday in Seattle:

"Gird your loins," Biden told the crowd. "We're gonna win with your help, God willing, we're gonna win, but this is not gonna be an easy ride. This president, the next president, is gonna be left with the most significant task. It's like cleaning the Augean stables, man. This is more than just, this is more than – think about it, literally, think about it – this is more than just a capital crisis, this is more than just markets. This is a systemic problem we have with this economy."

"There are gonna be a lot of you who want to go, 'Whoa, wait a minute, yo, whoa, whoa, I don't know about that decision'," Biden continued. "Because if you think the decision is sound when they're made, which I believe you will when they're made, they're not likely to be as popular as they are sound. Because if they're popular, they're probably not sound."
