I wish I was talking about him standing strong behind some good progressive policies but in this case I am talking about him struggling to defend his lie.
Which lie is that, professor? Let me remind you what lie……https://lobotero.com/2019/08/30/bidens-new-gaff/
Biden is basically saying that his LIE does not matter……
Last week, the Washington Post detailed how Joe Biden had jumbled up three different war stories into one as part of a campaign anecdote about the bravery of troops. Biden initially defended the accuracy of his account, but he’s now acknowledging the flub while calling it meaningless in the grand scheme, reports NPR. “The details are irrelevant in terms of decision-making,” Biden says in an interview with Asma Khalid. The 76-year-old has long been prone to gaffes, but he says voters should not be concerned. When pressed on the details in the war story, for example, he said: “That has nothing to do with judgment of whether or not you send troops to war, the judgment of whether you bring someone home, the judgment of whether you decide on a health care policy.”
Politico has more from the same interview: “‘The fact that I would forget that it was [Maj. Gen. David] Rodriguez who was pinning—I believe this is the case—pinning a bronze star on a young man was—it’s irrelevant to the point,” he tells Khalid. At the Hill, former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, a Biden ally, says the media is making too big a deal of the former VP’s slip-ups. Americans don’t care, he argues. Biden’s gaffes “are not outright lies; they’re likely the result of a faulty memory or some confusion about the facts,” writes Rendell. The man he wants to replace, by contrast, is a “Liar-in-Chief,” he writes.
He LIED! That MATTERS!
If his memory is faulty then is he a good candidate?
If the LIES are not important then why is lies a big deal when he talks about Trump?
This most recent LIE is not his first……there is his lie about the Iraq invasion and occupation…..
Count his role in supporting the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq as another part of Joe Biden’s long political career that the former vice president—who voted for the war as a senator—doesn’t quite remember correctly.
In an interview with NPR published Tuesday morning, Biden told reporter Asma Khalid that he opposed the war from the very moment it began in March of 2003 despite voting for its authorization just months earlier.
He was against it from the beginning seems to be a popular stand these days…if all that is true then how did they get enough votes to authorize the war?
All this makes Biden a non-candidate in my book…..he will say whatever he needs to say to the audience of the day to gain the nomination.
There is NO difference between Biden and Trump just he is less disgusting than the other. The media is reporting that Biden’s gaff is not a problem with the hinterland voter…..if true then there is a problem when lying is totally acceptable…at least for me….if he, Biden, will lie about this what else will he lie about to the voter.
If the media is correct then it will explain the sad shape of this nation when lie make NO difference.
For now I am sticking with my choice of candidates and if that fails and Biden becomes the nominee then I shall look toward a alternative.
