So in between grunting and cackling like a hyena last night, Joe Biden flat out lied, asserting that he’d voted against the Afghan and Iraq wars when in fact he voted for both. Either the man is too stupid to remember that Senate votes are recorded or, more likely, he knew that the Obama Press would never point out his duplicity. Either way, where are those respecters of the truth like Fudrucker, who only last week were tugging their underpants up to their ears in anger because Romney, they claimed, had lied. Is it possible that it’s not truth they’re after?
Vice President Joe Biden accused Rep. Paul Ryan of putting two wars on the “credit card,” and then suggested he voted against the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
“By the way, they talk about this great recession like it fell out of the sky–like, ‘Oh my goodness, where did it come from?’” Biden said. “It came from this man voting to put two wars on a credit card, at the same time, put a prescription drug plan on the credit card, a trillion dollar tax cut for the very wealthy.”
“I was there, I voted against them,” Biden continued. “I said, no, we can’t afford that.”
Then Sen. Biden voted for the Afghanistan resolution on Sept. 14, 2001 which authorized “the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for the recent attacks launched against the United States.”
And on Oct. 11, 2002, Biden voted for a resolution authorizing unilateral military action in Iraq, according to the Washington Post.
