Do You Even Get the Point?

He's More Prolific than
Dan Quayle ever was.
BLOOMBERG – Vice President Joe Biden wandered a little off course on a trip down memory lane today.

“Fifteen years ago, I was honored, as the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, to lead the fight for Poland’s admission into NATO,” Biden said in Warsaw during a visit designed to reassure America’s Eastern European allies in the wake of Russia’s move to take control of Crimea.

The only problem: Biden wasn’t chairman back then.

It was Sen. Jesse Helms, a North Carolina Republican, who guided the committee and launched the floor debate on granting NATO accession to Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic. Biden did lead minority Democrats in approving the treaty resolution, after having initially expressed doubts about the political viability of expanding NATO.

See, the issues is not what he lied about. That was menial. The issue is how easy it is for him and the Democrat administration [including President BO (the amateur president)] to just continually lie about everything. They sincerely believe that if it comes out of their mouths it is truth, whether or not what they say really happened.

They lie to convince you to accept something ("If you like your insurance, you can keep your insurance." "If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor."). They lie to make themselves look more accomplished than they are (see above). They lie about their agenda (caught on camera whispering to Putin: "I'll have more flexibility after the election." - See how flexible he is now?). 

Lying is an accepted technique for putting forth the Democrat agenda. Not a one Democrat that I know of sees anything wrong with that. 

Look, I know what I am talking about. I have degrees in psychology, sociology, political science, history, cosmology, cosmetology, finance, and 98.6 degrees from Fahrenheit. 

So don't try to pull the wool over my...

Joe - Lying is wrong. If these Democrats are lying to us they should be brought to light. Same for Putin.

From Wiki --- In 1997, he became the ranking minority member and chaired the committee in January 2001 and from June 2001 through 2003. When Democrats re-took control of the Senate following the 2006 elections, Biden again assumed the top spot on the committee in 2007

Doesn't seem to be much of a gaffe.

Let's get back to the real issuee and enforce the Jo-Joe Politico Doctrine and send a carrier wing through the Bosporus.
It the Turks object, screw them too, right Joe?

Let me help you read between the lines. Quayle was hammered because he went along with an incorrect spelling of potato on his card when judging a spelling bee. The press did not let up on him and dragged this puny, insignificant story out like it really mattered (to anybody except the poor kid the school had cheated out of a correct answer). Yet Biden's goof of the week goes unnoticed by MSM. I wonder why? Oh, wait...I think I know.

I will agree and disagree with you Joe. I agree that certain politicians are unfairly criticized based solely on narratives created by a lazy media culture.

When Quayle was selected as Veep candidate, he was being compared to a young JFK by the Right. Then Lloyd Benson B slapped him in the debate and the meme started 'Quayle is a lightweight' and not very bright. From then on, anything that fit the narrative got amplified, fairly and unfairly.

I disagree that it is one sided. "Al Gore invented the internet" is still with us even though he never said it. Other false claims were made (Love Canal, Love Story, earth tones, etc) about him but those lies fit the "serial exaggerator" narrative and they were reported as true.

Biden has been widely criticized in the MSM. Sometimes deservedly, plagiarizing Neil Kinnock, and sometimes unfairly. He's hardly the bumbler his narrative has made him out to be. I'll admit he can be goofy at times but he does have serious foreign policy chops whether or not you agree with his policies (I wish Obama did more often).

I don't think it qualifies as lying when he mixes up being minority leader or chairman of the committee at the time. Picayune on your part.

Craig: "I don't think it qualifies as lying..."

OK. So, given who he was trying to impress, what would have qualified as lying?

Craig said...

If he hadn't lead minority Democrats in approving the treaty resolution.
