Another day, another Mensa Joe Biden whopping lie – and this time there were two. Speaking at a high school in Detroit, Mensa Joe blustered Whopper #1:
My dad used to say you measure a man or woman – it wasn’t whether they got knocked down, but how quickly they got up. And guess what? Detroit’s getting back up.
In the recent movie The Adjustment Bureau, Matt Damon plays a politician who uses the exact same story about his father, but there’s one difference. Damon realizes he doesn’t want to lie any more, so he immediately recants and acknowledges that the story was pure fiction. He becomes a hero.
Biden, on the other hand, simply lied. His first whopper was saying Detroit is faring much better. Not so fast, Mensa Joe. Between 2007, when the Democrats took over Congress, and 2011, revenues declined by more than $100 million. Over that same period, income-tax revenue dropped by 18%, utility-tax revenue by 17%, and property-tax revenue by 2.3%. Detroit is today the second-poorest major U.S. city.
Biden spoke to roughly 1,100 students packed into a narrow hallway. Why a narrow hallway? Probably because the Obama campaign, protesting that they preferred smaller crowds, had to make it look like the crowd was SRO. No gymnasiums here.
Still, Mensa Joe found enough room to spoon-feed the gullible teenagers more of his tasty prevarications. Here was Whopper #2:
Folks, I can tell you I’ve known eight presidents, three of them intimately. I have never, never once, in all the time I’ve been with this president … I’ve never once in the difficult decisions he’s had to make heard him ask me or anyone else, ‘What are the politics in this for me?’ Not one single time.
(It’s nice to know Biden has been on intimate terms with three presidents, but really, Mensa Joe, that’s TMI.)
Does anyone believe Biden when he asserts that Barack Obama doesn’t make his own personal success a factor in his decision-making? Does he think that any reasonable person who has witnessed Obama’s constant narcissism would believe that for a nanosecond?
If the truth does indeed set you free, then Joe Biden will always be a slave. And he’s the one putting himself in chains.
