Lies Joe Biden Told Me.... the debate last night. There are 14 at all (update: 22), I'll just excerpt the seven deadliest sins...via Fausta (Jersey represents!), who has video as well:

TAX VOTE: Biden said McCain voted “the exact same way” as Obama to increase taxes on Americans earning just $42,000, but McCain DID NOT VOTE THAT WAY.

AHMEDINIJAD MEETING: Joe Biden lied when he said that Barack Obama never said that he would sit down unconditionally with Mahmoud Ahmedinijad of Iran. Barack Obama did say specifically, and Joe Biden attacked him for it.

OFFSHORE OIL DRILLING: Biden said, “Drill we must.” But Biden has opposed offshore drilling and even compared offshore drilling to “raping” the Outer Continental Shelf.”

TROOP FUNDING: Joe Biden lied when he indicated that John McCain and Barack Obama voted the same way against funding the troops in the field. John McCain opposed a bill that included a timeline, that the President of the United States had already said he would veto regardless of it’s passage.

HEALTH INSURANCE: Biden falsely said McCain will raise taxes on people’s health insurance coverage — they get a tax credit to offset any tax hike. Independent fact checkers have confirmed this attack is false.

IRAQ: When Joe Biden lied when he said that John McCain was “dead wrong on Iraq”, because Joe Biden shared the same vote to authorize the war and differed on the surge strategy where they John McCain has been proven right.

REAGAN TAX RATES: Biden is wrong in saying that under Obama, Americans won’t pay any more in taxes then they did under Reagan.

And what does the media do? Glenn Reynolds saw it coming:

This "Debate Fact Check" from ABC News notes that Sarah Palin fluffed the name of a general in Afghanistan but -- as I predicted last night -- ignores Joe Biden's multiple Constitutional mistakes. Perhaps he should study up on what the job involves -- remember, the rap on Sarah Palin was that she didn't know. And perhaps the press should try reporting on what he says more . . . .

I'm adding more to the list. Right now there are 22 instead of the original 14

What ticks me off is that no one - NO ONE - os talking about these gaffes on TV. Are they too lazy to fact-check Biden, or are they intentionally covering up his rampant ignorance and lies?

If so, that is the true scandal, and a horrible one at that. But who is there to report it, if everyone is in on the con?

All this guy has done is lied. Maybe that's why the fans at the game booed him last week. Wish they could boo the elitist illuminati out of office.
