Joe Biden's 14 Lies From Last Nights Debate!

Discussion in 'Politics' started by TT1, Oct 3, 2008.

  1. TT1



    1. 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.

    2. 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.

    3. 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.”

    4. 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.

    5. OPPOSING CLEAN COAL: Biden says he’s always been for clean coal, but he just told a voter that he is against clean coal and any new coal plants in America and has a record of voting against clean coal and coal in the U.S. Senate.

    6. ALERNATIVE ENERGY VOTES: According to, Biden is exaggerating and overstating John McCain’s record voting for alternative energy when he says he voted against it 23 times.

    7. 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

    8. OIL TAXES: Biden falsely said Palin supported a windfall profits tax in Alaska -- she reformed the state tax and revenue system, it's not a windfall profits tax.

    9. AFGHANISTAN / GEN. MCKIERNAN COMMENTS: Biden said that top military commander in Iraq said the principles of the surge could not be applied to Afghanistan, but the commander of NATO's International Security Assistance Force Gen. David D. McKiernan said that there were principles of the surge strategy, including working with tribes, that could be applied in Afghanistan.

    10. REGULATION: Biden falsely said McCain weakened regulation -- he actually called for more regulation on Fannie and Freddie.

    11. 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.

    12. TAX INCREASES: Biden said Americans earning less than $250,000 wouldn’t see higher taxes, but the Obama-Biden tax plan would raise taxes on individuals making $200,000 or more.

    13. BAILOUT: Biden said the economic rescue legislation matches the four principles that Obama laid out, but in reality it doesn’t meet two of the four principles that Obama outlined on Sept. 19, which were that it include an emergency economic stimulus package, and that it be part of “part of a globally coordinated effort with our partners in the G-20.”

    14. REAGAN TAX RATES: Biden is wrong in saying that under Obama, Americans won't pay any more in taxes then they did under Reagan.
  2. Lies, lies, and more lies, but you're missing the big picture. Biden is merely affirming the status quo in Congress with his words, everyone does it. The lies are unimportant. I personally wouldn't hold it against him.

    Palin called it right. She said the pundits will sort it out in the morning.

    I disagree. The lies are very important. They base their campaign on them and the public should know.

    Lets see if you and Palin are right about the pundits. I don't think so, the media is swayed left on almost every paper and news channel(because they are liberal and take the 1st ammendment to extreme) so they will always support the left.
    The average person I don't believe follow so closely, and just base what they read or hear on TV.
    So the media can sway the votes, because they lead the general public into knowing what they want them to know.

    Thank God for people like Bill O Reilly and Sean Hannity.
  4. Van Sustern last night.

    She said, she was a Midwesterner who was '........the recipient of some very expensive education." But Sarah Palin talks like the people she (Greta) grew up with.

    I think maybe we need a Schoolmarm no nonsense cutthroat in there with one mantra.........

    "This is yours. take it. This is the peoples'. Take it, and we'll cut your hands off."

    Sometimes it is that simple.
