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.
