Report: Biden Lied Repeatedly During Debate

by Keith Koffler on October 15, 2012, 3:41 pm

Wanted to make sure you saw this report in National Review on Vice President Joe Biden’s serial mendacity.

A lot of people compared Biden’s demeanor during the debate to The Joker in Batman. Apparently, though, he had constructed all by himself a new Batman nemesis: The Liar.

Biden lied repeatedly during the debate, according to National Review, which judges his misstatements to be dishonesty because Biden is not yet senile and his “errors” had to have been obvious to him.

Of course, the Obama campaign has recently made “Romney the liar” its central theme.

Which makes one think:

Does this man . . .

Resemble this man?

In case you didn’t recognize these gentlemen, the first is Obama political guru David Plouffe. The second, his grandfather, Niccolo Machiavelli.

Strikingly similar, don’t you think?

Here’s a list, from the National Review piece, of Biden’s debate deceptions:

  • Biden said he voted against the Iraq war but he voted for it.
  • Biden said he voted against the Afghanistan war but he voted for it.
  • Biden said he wants millionaires to pay more taxes when his proposal raises taxes on those making $200,000 a year or more.
  • Biden said Syria is five times as large as Libya when Libya is ten times as large as Syria. Note: NR generously terms this “a simple misstatement.”
  • Biden said “we weren’t told” that diplomats in Libya wanted more security when they were told. Note: The White House claims, implausibly, that Biden in saying “we” meant him and President Obama.
  • Biden claimed Ryan proposed cuts to embassy security but didn’t.
  • Biden said Obama has met with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu a dozen times, but he hasn’t.
  • Biden said Catholic institutions don’t have to provide for contraception under Obamacare, but they do.
  • Biden said Obamacare gave $716 billion from Medicare, but Obamacare took $716 billion from Medicare.
  • Biden said he was wounded while heroically defending the world during the Martian invasion of 1982.

Okay, that last one would have been too obvious, but he’d have used it if he thought he could get away with it.

What? The VP was making it all up? Say it ain’t so, Joe! Say it ain’t so!

Star October 15, 2012 at 3:57 pm

Some said they were the Joker and the Choker. Wish I could claim that one.

William October 15, 2012 at 4:05 pm

In Ryan’s defense: you know how when there’s someone in the room who’s an absolute nut job you stay quiet and try not to make eye contact? That’s the impression I got from his performance.

Susan October 15, 2012 at 5:03 pm

Agree with you, William. Biden was an absolute nut job. Hard to keep your composure when trying to communicate with a complete ass clown. The moderator didn’t help much. Ms. Raddish seemed to have an aversion to Ryan’s wheelhouse, the economy. Her question on abortion got more time than the economy.

mo1 October 15, 2012 at 4:16 pm

Now, Keith. We all know the VEEP’s misstakes are not his fault. Can he help it that he plagaraized from a false set of facts written by Obama?

Langley Spook October 15, 2012 at 4:17 pm

WOW! good thing the “main-stream media” or “WH press corps” EVER ‘reported’ this stuff…

Girly1 October 15, 2012 at 4:43 pm

He’s also the cheapskate who donated a measly $50 to the Wounded Warriors fund.

Lindy October 15, 2012 at 7:45 pm

Good grief. We gave more than that this year to the Wounded Warrior Fund and we are semi-retired seniors on Social Security. Still working part time for obvious reasons.

GotFreedom October 15, 2012 at 4:44 pm

Wish someone in the media would look into this. . .

Today while listening to Rush, a caller mentioned that last week, Col David Hunt discussed how in fact, many govt agencies were listening to the attack on the embassy in Libya for 6 hours.

http://audio.wrko.com/a/64657882/col-hunt-on-the-newest-libyan-revelations.htm

NOTE: Col. Hunt begins speaking about the Libya attack around 2:56

15:50–satellites/drone watching this while attack going on. . .

16:38–too many people that were watching this. . .I don’t see how they get to cover this up. . .unless the press doesn’t get to do it’s job

18:18–How many people do you think knew, give me a number. . .all around the world. . .Oh, it’s in the hundreds. . .hundreds of people knew about it at the time. . .

20:16–And by the way Howard, it’s not just one phone call during the 6 hrs., all these decision makers are being updated by their staffs. . .you know General this just happened; General we just found out this guy died. . .General the fight’s still going on. . .these are constant, video, written, digital, audio updates to the chain of command that did not function. . .it just seized up

21:25–Our ability to record things is so sophisticated this will come out. . .no, no news organization. . .cause I’ve talked to a couple of them, has gon on this angle. . they’re still going on the Romney vs. Obama vs Biden as laughing too much. . .whoa, whoa, wait a minute, how about he lied. . .

During Col Hunt’s comments, he mentioned that a woman, last name “Lamb” testified before Issa’s committee that she was listening to this attack. I searched and found her testimony. . .page 5 begins her testimony about what she heard:

http://www.state.gov/documents/organization/199157.pdf

. . .”When the attack began, a Diplomatic Security agent working in the Tactical Operations Center immediately activated the Imminent Danger Notification System and made an emergency announcement over the PA. Based on our security protocols, he also alerted the annex U.S. quick reaction security team stationed nearby, the Libyan 17th February Brigade, Embassy Tripoli, and the Diplomatic Security Command Center in Washington. From that point on, I could follow what was happening in almost real-time”. . .

She could follow “in real time” what was happening; if this is true, many, many heads need to roll. Do you mean to tell me that of all the people who were probably listening in on this 6hr feed around the world, not one of them have the courage of their convictions to stand up and tell what they heard. . .if not for our country, then how about for the families of the 4 men murdered? Is covering for Barack Hussein Obama really worth it–heck no!

Girly1 October 15, 2012 at 5:07 pm

This is a bombshell, GotFreedom. The attack began around 5:30 p.m. EST. Obama ignored the beeping red lights on the WH phones, continued packing for Las Vegas, and enjoyed a leisurely dinner with the family. Where are the two Watergate investigators, Woodward and Bernstein? This is 1000x worse!

JP October 15, 2012 at 5:54 pm

Girly1, yes, this is Obama’s Watergate and Nixon resigned because of Watergate. But this time people were killed. And Obama goes off to play in Vegas. It is exasperating beyond the pale. I am so angry about this. I hope I can control myself to the point where I don’t blow a gasket over it. I hate the MSM and how they are protecting this god-awful person who was elected because of white guilt.

Girly1 October 15, 2012 at 6:11 pm

JP, I don’t want to add to your exasperation, but Drudge just linked to this headline referencing savage Obama supporters Twitter feeds. It’s appalling!

Dr. Thomas Sowell also expressed similar thoughts.

JP October 15, 2012 at 8:50 pm

Girly1, this is unbelievable. Good grief! What next?

GotFreedom October 15, 2012 at 6:59 pm

It makes me sick to think that the media is covering for BHO. . .not to mention. . .why hasn’t Issa’s committee pursued this after hearing Deputy Asst. Sec of State Charlene Lamb’s testimony. . .are they deaf. . .she said:

“I’m responsible for the safety and security of more than 275 diplomatic facilities.”

“The Tactical Operations Center (or TOC) occupied a third building. It contained communications equipment, and a warning system.”

“After acquiring the compound, we made a number of security upgrades. . .Inside the perimeter of the wall, we also added equipment to detect explosives, as well as an Imminent Danger Notification System.”

“The account I am about to present is based on first-hand reports from several security personnel present that night.”

“When the attack began, a Diplomatic Security agent working in the Tactical Operations Center immediately activated the Imminent Danger Notification System and made an emergency announcement over the PA. Based on our security protocols, he also alerted the annex U.S. quick reaction security team stationed nearby, the Libyan 17th February Brigade, Embassy Tripoli, and the Diplomatic Security Command Center in Washington. From that point on, I could follow what was happening in almost real-time.”

“They attempted to break into the Tactical Operations Center again and again but were not able to breach the facility.”

I want to know; what happened to the Tactical Operations Center and the personnel that were in there communicating about being attacked? No where in her testimony do I see (unless I’ve overlooked it) any mention of them being evacuated. She said they “attempted to break into the TOC. . .but that’s it!

Also, is she suggesting that a group from Tripoli came to Benghazi in an attempt to help along with Libyan officials. . .wouldn’t the folks in Tripoli also be in contact with higher ups (1) before they deployed (2) while they were deploying (3) upon their return to the airport in Tripoli?

As an American, I demand answers! For the families of the murdered men, I demand answers! I think we should all write to Congress and demand that they address not only her testimony that she “could follow what was happening in almost real-time”, but also the fact of who, all over the world, was listening in on this massacre!

Here is the list of Congresspersons on the House Oversight Cmte. . .if one of them is your Rep, please contact them and demand answers! http://oversight.house.gov/committee-members/

I do not think Plouffe is a direct descendent of Machiavelli. Machiavelli had intelligence.

wcc October 15, 2012 at 4:51 pm

You give Biden too much credit. He is senile and therefore not fit to be president. Now what’s Obama excuse?

Not Nabob October 15, 2012 at 9:08 pm

His excuse, he’s half white. Hehehehehehe

srdem65 October 15, 2012 at 4:57 pm

Not to go all Zen, but maybe he really believes all these things to be true.
There are some of us in the senior group who don’t hear every word spoken or who because of illness or certain drugs don’t process information correctly.
Now that I was nice and polite; he lied through his teeth because he knew the MSM would cover for him, omit his bald-faced lies and follow his lead by blaming Romney/Ryan/Repubs for the attack in Bengazi.

He had his moment in front of millions of viewers who would find no reason for the VPOTUS to lie outright to them. He knew that they wouldn’t find anything to contradict what he said in their local newspapers or TV newscasts.

Sadie October 15, 2012 at 5:42 pm

■”Biden said he was wounded while heroically defending the world during the Martian invasion of 1982″

You’re wrong Keith. It was 1953 – The War of the Worlds.

RickW October 15, 2012 at 6:00 pm

Good point, Sadie. I think Joe was referring to Mork and Mindy. I think that was on in 1982. Joe feels a common bond with Mork and has visited his planet many times for hair growth remedies.

Sadie October 15, 2012 at 6:17 pm

Rick – Nanoo nanoo, I think you’re onto something (mostly making me laugh).

cindy lou October 16, 2012 at 4:57 am

Rick I hope you have a blog – if not you should start one

you are a riot!

drk October 15, 2012 at 5:54 pm

Remember what Rush says- If you want to know what the libs are doing, see of what they accuse their opponents, which is what they are doing. Romney was called a liar, and, well…

LOL at the last one! Funny

Lindy October 15, 2012 at 7:42 pm

Plugs wouldn’t recognize the truth if it smacked him in the face. He’s still lying about his first wife and infant daughter being killed by a drunk driver. My daughter was killed by a drunk driver and I really resent his fabrication about the accident in which his first wife and daughter died.

OMG! Joe – your pants are on fire!!!!!!!
