I want my money back. The show wasn’t as entertaining as it was expected to be. Biden was obnoxious but otherwise he did quite well. Each agenda declared their candidate won. Arguably Biden did a better job with his answers; clearly his “friend” Paul Ryan came across as more likeable. Ryan also did a better job of establishing his honesty, not once did he lie by saying Biden was his friend.
Speaking of lies, Joe Biden said of the Libyan Consulate attack “We weren’t told they wanted more security; we did not know they wanted more security there.” That was a bald face lie.
Biden said President Obama has “gone out and repaired our alliances so that the rest of the world follows us again.” It’s far from the truth slo Joe may actually believe it so this one falls somewhere between a lie and oblivious ignorance. But no benefit of the doubt can be given on the next statement that Romney and Biden, “bet against America all the time.” Biden combined a lie with a smear with that one.
Biden said the administration passed a “middle class tax cut.” That was another lie. Biden said Sarah Palin spoke about “death panels” in their Vice Presidential debate in 2008. No such statement by Palin is in the transcript. Biden lied again. Biden said no one is looking to do things through the UN. But the truth is the UN plays an important role in the Obama administration’s foreign policy.
All politicians play loose with the facts at times. We accept that within bounds. It is up to us to intelligently separate the wheat from the chaff. It bothers us to label anyone a liar. But when liars lie and lie and lie, then lie again by accusing you for being the liar, at some point courtesy begins to look like guilt. It is time to call the liars liars. Joe Biden and Barack Obama are liars.
Joe Biden was rude, obnoxious, and condescending. (Guess he was appealing to the “Occupy” vote.) By one account 96 interruptions by Biden to 6 from Ryan. All this from the man who so genteel in proclaiming he doesn’t want to “impose” his values on abortion on others. Yet when it comes to his views on government run health care he will impose his views upon each and every one of us until the best health care delivery system in the world is no more. The hypocrisy is outrageous.
