Did Biden get His Facts Right? Did Fact Check?

The Media is corrupt..Journalism is dead!

Excerpt: John Lott

Early vice presidents spent a lot of time in the Senate. Thomas Jefferson even spent his time writing “A Manual of Parliamentary Practice: for the Use of the Senate of the United States.” Modern vice presidents may show up only when they think tie votes will occur, but that is their choice.

This isn’t rocket science. The Constitution on this point is very straightforward: “The Vice President of the United States shall be President of the Senate, but shall have no Vote, unless they be equally divided.”

Instead, it was Palin who got it right. Besides correctly stating that the vice president holds positions in both the executive and legislative branches, she also noted that:

Of course, we know what a vice president does. And that’s not only to preside over the Senate and [I] will take that position very seriously also. I’m thankful the Constitution would allow a bit more authority given to the vice president if that vice president so chooses to exert it in working with the Senate and making sure that we are supportive of the president’s policies and making sure too that our president understands what our strengths are.

But just as the vice president’s job includes more than simply being ready to assume the presidency if the president dies, the Constitution merely states what the vice president’s minimum responsibilities are.

Compare the uproar over Palin’s answer to Charlie Gibson about the “Bush Doctrine,” a doctrine that Gibson clearly didn’t understand and for which there apparently exist at least four different versions. Where is the outrage over Biden not understanding what vice presidents do? For Biden, his inability to correctly say what vice presidents do was surely his “gotcha” moment.

Yet, this mistake during the debate was hardly unique. Biden got a lot of things wrong in the debate that are going unnoticed by the fact-check media. Take just a few:

Can And Will PBS Ifill Be Impartial During Biden-Palin Debate

             The controversial PBS anchor Gwen Ifill will be the Moderator tonight at the VP debate. who is very much Mesmerized by Obama. She is the author of a new book featuring the great one that will be released on Inauguration day. Let’s look at some of the controversy swirling around her as the choice for Moderator.

During the Democratic National Convention, Ifill offered her neutral analysis before Michelle Obama’s speech on NBC News “A lot of people have never seen anything that looks like a Michelle Obama before. She’s educated, she’s beautiful, she’s tall, she tells you what she thinks and they hope that she can tell a story about Barack Obama and about herself…”

During the Republican National Convention, the PBS ombudsman fielded numerous complaints about Ifill’s coverage of Sarah Palin’s speech. Wrote Brian Meyers of Granby, Ct.:

“I was appalled by Gwen Ifill’s commentary directly following Gov. Sarah Palin’s speech. Her attitude was dismissive and the look on her face was one of disgust. Clearly, she was agitated by what most critics view as a well-delivered speech. It is quite obvious that Ms. Ifill supports Obama as she struggled to say anything redemptive about Gov. Palin’s performance. I am disappointed in Ms. Ifill’s complete disregard for journalistic objectivity.”

Say It Ain’t So Joe!

SAY IT AIN’T SO JOE!

Poor man told Katie on CBS that the ad the Nobama campaign ran was ‘terrible’ and he would not have run it.. You remember the ad making fun of McCain because he could not use a computer, (due to his war injuries he suffered as a POW.) then the campaign wheelers and dealers ala NObama had to reign him in..he had to say he had not seen it and back up on his earlier comment.

Poor Joe, say it ain’t so.. that you can’t have an opinion. At least McCain and Palin can disagree.

Barack Obama slapped his loose-lipped running mate Tuesday, chastising Joe Biden for speaking too fast and contradicting him on one of the massive financial bailouts.

Biden, a Delaware senator, declared last week the federal government should not have floated the American International Group an $85 billion lifeline.

Obama said the feds had no choice and hit John McCain for opposing the AIG rescue one day, then backing it the next.

Obama spanking Joe Biden like a baby!

This was when Biden was campaigning for the Presidency during the Primaries.

Thought this was interesting, It may very well come back to bite him..He sure has had a lot of problems with NObama.

Hattip:Right Truth

Sen. Joe Biden, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s incoming chairman, wants to get tough with Mexico, calling it an “erstwhile democracy” with a “corrupt system” responsible for illegal immigration and drug problems in the U.S.

Biden, D-Del., was in Columbia on Monday in his first postelection trip to this first-in-the-South presidential primary state as he continues to line up support for his presidential bid.

During a question-and-answer session before more than 230 Columbia Rotary Club members, Biden was asked about immigration problems.

Biden, who favors tightening the U.S.-Mexico border with fences, said immigration is driven by money in low-wage Mexico.

“Mexico is a country that is an erstwhile democracy where they have the greatest disparity of wealth,” Biden said. “It is one of the wealthiest countries in the hemisphere and because of a corrupt system that exists in Mexico, there is the 1 percent of the population at the top, a very small middle class and the rest is abject poverty.”

Unless the political dynamics change in Mexico and U.S. employers who hire illegal immigrants are punished, illegal immigration won’t stop. “All the rest is window dressing,” he said.

An even bigger problem are illegal drugs “coming up through corrupt Mexico,” he said. “People are driving across that border with tons, tons — hear me — tons of everything from byproducts for methamphetamines, to cocaine, to heroine.”

Covering a variety of topics, Biden kept most of the crowd in their seats for an hour — twice as long as scheduled.

“I warn all of you, all of you making more than a million bucks — I hope you all are — I’m taking away your tax cut,” Biden said. “I’m not joking.”

Sounds like Barack Obama will need to have a debate with Joe Biden, in addition to John McCain.

SAY IT AIN’T SO JOE!

Slander Sexism and Lies

http://kodiakkonfidential.blogspot.com/2007/12/sarah-in-vogue.html

Why do they hate her? What is it about Sarah that is driving left-wing elites to say the most idiotic and bizarre things? Since her explosive arrival onto the political scene, Palin has endured far more than the customary and expected vetting and scrutiny.

Obama underlings and their dinosaur media apparatchiks have dug through her garbage, rifled through her dirty laundry, and interviewed every friend, foe, and caribou in Alaska. She has been (falsely) branded a book-burner, a religious zealot, “anti-women,” and “anti-science.”

I found an interesting take on this from Salon.com and this one over at NoQuarterUSA.net..(very good writer,both are left leaning..but very interesting reads below.

A Great Leap for Women?

Then came Charlie…er…I mean Charles Gibson. The ABC News star tried to jettison his nice-guy image in the first interview with Palin and ended up coming off like a pedantic snob. Aside from tripping up on the Bush Doctrine (she explained it as his general worldview, as opposed to the doctrine of preemptive military action), she acquitted herself well.
Sorry, Charlie. There are actually 4 Bush Doctrines..you can find them over on Right Truth at this link:

There is no single meaning of the Bush doctrine

You can vote for what you think of Sarah Palin’s performance in the ABC Cleveland market on the Charlie Gibson Interview…. It is in the mid right hand corner called net 5 poll …

http://www.newsnet5.com/index.html– it was running 41% yes ability to lead the country and 41% No..go vote. A dead heat!

In the past two-weeks, Obama-friendly columnists and commentators have questioned Palin’s fitness as a mother. CNN, NBC and the other left-wing media outlets have expended more man-hours looking into Palin’s faith than they did in two years looking into Barack Obama’s. My personal favorite, though, is actor Matt “Bagger Vance” Damon’s saying that the mere possibility of Vice President Palin was like a “bad Disney movie.” Damon really really wants to know if she believes there were Dinosaurs 4,000 years ago! Pamela Anderson.. “I can’t stand her”..not that you know her Pamie, you just can’t stand what she stands for..they have to expletive deletive your suck comment!

The vitriol is so over-the-top that it is having a boomerang effect. As the attacks over the last two weeks have intensified, the McCain/Palin poll numbers have shot up. Today’s Gallup numbers show for the first time in years Republicans winning a generic congressional ballot among likely voters. Elites from Los Angeles to Manhattan are sensing that their chance at a political utopia may be slipping away.

Sarah Palin’s entire existence is a refutation of everything the Radical left holds sacrosanct. They champion abortion rights, she stands for life, personally and politically. They think the redistribution of income is indispensable to achieving “economic justice.” She sees it as their means to grow government and penalize prosperity. They look at America and see a collection of oppressed minorities. She sees America as the land of opportunity. They believe we need to do more to court “world opinion.”
She’s not embarrassed over having little use for Europe.

It is not enough for them to beat Sarah Palin, they must destroy her. The shenanigans they pulled on Hillary and her supporters was unbelievable..with Sarah they attack her personal life and family to boot! Yep, the Obama camp got a free ride from the MSM for quite a long while. I personally believe if it were not for the many blogs outrage and frustration with his dubious associations, and corrupt ‘good ole boys’ they would be silent yet.

UPDATE: in Red

Today, the Democrats have announced they will employ a troop of “female surrogates,” including Senator Clinton of New York, Governor Janet Napolitano of Arizona, and Governor Kathryn Sibelius of Kansas to take Governor Palin on and hopefully steal her thunder away from voters in battleground states.

Sounds like it will be a page from the book Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman.

I wonder why the guys are so uncomfortable taking a woman on publicly? In the political arena, they do so all the time, usually behind closed doors–except if that woman is Senator Clinton. How ironic, that Senator Obama has had to turn to her now.

In my opinion, President Amadinejad might indeed have formidable opponents in Senator McCain and Governor Palin who understand that we are at war and that it is one we must win. Unlike Senator Obama, I bet they do not view the terrorists as “perverting the Islamic faith” (Obama said this in his interview with O’Reilly) but rather, as expressing it all too well. On this very point, (whether there is a “good” and “peaceful” Islam or not), our Republic will either stand or fall.

I have heard (do not know if true) that they are considering dropping Biden from the Messiah’s ticket. I did hear Biden say that Hillary would have been a better selection. Is he now going to use a health issue? Thought his health was vetted. If they do drop Biden and convince Hillary to go on the ticket now..would that not prove finally that the great one has poor judgment? Proved it to me with several issues..The latest being the Russian invasion into Georgia..how many times did he backtrack with his statements? 3 times. Could Hillary have been the focus of Obama’s meeting with Bill Clinton? Time will tell.

It is time to face it…both parties need an overhaul! Many of the leaders in both parties have left their constituencies. They have not heard or they do not care! I did not hear one word at either convention about our illegal immigration problem. Did I miss it somehow? Do they not understand that the American people are concerned about terroism? Yes, they promise to make our borders safer. Why are they not safe now? Why are border guards still in prison?

When will we get back to the issues? When will the ads stop their lies? I am speaking here of a new ad yesterday from the Obama campaign..the one where it shows a computer and says McCain can’t even send an email! Do they not know, do they not care about the truth being that he cannot comb his hair..that he truly fought for us..and in the process he cannot raise his arms. Does the MSM care to address this?

See the link below from NoQuarter that addresses the cruelty of this one.

This ad, released by the Obama campaign today, and played numerous times on television, is utterly cruel, and should not only be pulled from the Obama Web site and Obama YouTube channel — where it is still displayed — but also require Obama to issue a profound apology:

Jonah Goldberg Wondering No More

Of the candidates that have proven change (that is clearly on their record) and in the process taken on their own party, we have the McCain Palin ticket. Two candidates that are very much alike with quite a few of the same values of reform. On the change ticket of Obama Biden, he chose a Washington insider. One that would soothe the fear of Obama’s lack of experience. McCain took a risk. McCain revealed in this move that he truly is the Maverick of the Senate!

I found a beautiful letter from a Republican to a former Democrat who is now an Independent, I consider this a must read..the writing, the heart really says it all, below is an excerpt from NoQuarter. We all love our country and this says it all. Thank you Patrick. Thank you NoQuarter for posting this. It is time that those of us who love our Country put the Country first.

From Patrick:

I wrote this on 9/11, after watching it all happen again…I probably should have posted it in the Thank You thread below, but it also seems appropriate here, because the Erosion this thread speaks of is thanks in large part to you all…

I just watched the Towers fall again.

And the world stopped. It changed. We would never be the same.

Seven years later and here we are. We haven’t had another attack, but we’ve lost thousands of America’s finest. I will not debate the merits of the Iraq war. I believe that I, as a centrist Republican, and all you good people differ on that issue. Read the rest

It’s a long way ’til November 4th, but I’m betting on the Maverick of the Senate and the gal with the double-barreled shotgun and camouflage ski jacket.
