As He Is Prone To Do

In a February 20th Washington Post article, Charles Krauthammer declared Vice President Joe Biden a prophet:

Obama's Supine Diplomacy

The Biden prophecy has come to pass. Our wacky veep, momentarily inspired, predicted in October that "it will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama." Biden probably had in mind an eve-of-the-apocalypse drama like the Cuban missile crisis. Instead, Obama's challenges have come in smaller bites. Some are deliberate threats to U.S. interests, others mere probes to ascertain whether the new president has any spine.

Preliminary X-rays are not very encouraging. ...

With a grinning Goliath staggering about sporting a "kick me" sign on his back ...

In a meeting of G20 leaders at Buckingham Palace on April 1st, Obama confirms by his actions that it is Krauthammer who is a prophet:

Obama Bows to Saudi King

Although technically it appears that Obama's act is more one of prostrating himself than assuming a supine position.

But the "kick me" sign was spot on.
