Biden’s New Gaff

It is my considerable opinion that the media is doing all they can to keep Biden in the voters mind and keeping him protected as much as possible.

Yes the man is famous for his numerous gaff (lies) but one of his best was made just recently….

Joe Biden has been under fire for gaffes on the campaign trail, but the Washington Post is out with a report about an inaccuracy of a whole different order. It seems that Biden likes to tell a story about how, as vice president, he shrugged off the risk of danger, traveled to Afghanistan, and pinned the Silver Star on a Navy captain who had rappelled down a ravine under enemy fire to retrieve the body of a fellow soldier. “He said, ‘Sir, I don’t want the damn thing!’” Biden told an audience in New Hampshire Friday night. “‘Do not pin it on me, Sir! Please, Sir. Do not do that! He died. He died!'” Moving stuff, and the “God’s truth,” says Biden. But then comes this devastating critique from Matt Viser and Greg Jaffe of the Post: “Almost every detail in the story appears to be incorrect.”

They interviewed more than a dozen troops, commanders, and Biden campaign officials, concluding that it “appears as though the former vice president has jumbled elements of at least three actual events into one story of bravery, compassion and regret that never happened.” For example, Biden did visit Afghanistan—as a senator, not as VP, and he pinned no medals on anyone during the trip. The service member who performed the heroism described by Biden was a young Army specialist, not an older Navy vet, and Biden never pinned a medal on him. President Obama did, though it was the Medal of Honor. As VP, Biden did pin a medal on a service member who didn’t think he deserved it, but it was a Bronze Star, and it went to an Army staff sergeant who tried unsuccessfully to rescue a comrade from a burning Humvee

I have listen to the pundits say Biden is just being Biden or that it was 3 stories put together to make a point, etc etc.

It is a LIE no matter how you want to cut it Biden lied and exaggerated to win hearts and minds….if 3 parts are a lie then the whole damn thing is a LIE!

If it is not FACT then it is a LIE!

It is that simple!

The President lies well go but that does NOT make Biden’s LIE any less a LIE!

The media is brutal on everyone else about exaggerations and lies….but not Biden….why is that?

Listen to the MSM sugar coat this lie while calling out others…that is a prime example.

I have bitched lots about the MSM and the way they are making the case for the nomination of Biden….this illustrates how far they will go to protect Biden’s place in the polls, in the voter’s mind and the headlines.

DO NOT let the media tell you who is your candidate…

Be Smart!

  1. I have never been in the Army, but I think it is an insult beyond compare to use a lie like that to promote yourself during an election campaign.
    One more reason why I have come to hate all politicians, whatever country they ply their trade in.
    Best wishes, Pete.
