We Need To Talk About Joe Biden

He's unfit for the presidency.

NRO
By Kevin D. Williamson
September 1, 2019 6:30 AM

Excerpt:

There are two possible explanations of Joe Biden’s inability to tell the truth about things: One is that his mind is failing him, the other is that his honor is. In neither case is Biden fit to hold the office of president of the United States of America, and Democrats would discredit themselves and endanger the nation to nominate him.

Yes, yes, go ahead — “But, Trump!” etc. — and continue when you’ve completed the ritual of equivocation, and don’t think too hard about how far and in what direction that line of moral self-justification has carried the Republican party.

Joe Biden is a plagiarist and a liar, among other things. In the most recent example, detailed by the Washington Post, Biden made up a story in which he as vice president displayed personal courage and heroism in traveling to a dangerous war zone in order to recognize the service of an American soldier who had distinguished himself in a particularly dramatic way. It was a moving story. “This is the God’s truth,” he concluded. “My word as a Biden.”

But his word as a Biden isn’t worth squat, as the Post showed, reporting that “Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch and the rank of the recipient wrong, as well as his own role in the ceremony.” Which is a nice way of saying: Biden lied about an act of military heroism in order to aggrandize his own role in the story.

Like Hillary Rodham Clinton under fictitious sniper fire, Biden highlighted his own supposed courage in the face of physical danger: “We can lose a vice president. We can’t lose many more of these kids.”

If Biden here is lying with malice aforethought, then he ought to be considered morally disqualified for the office. If he is senescent, then he obviously is unable to perform the duties associated with the presidency, and asking him to do so would be indecent, dangerous, and unpatriotic.

The evidence points more toward moral disability than mental disability, inasmuch as Biden has a long career of lying about precisely this sort of thing.

The most dramatic instance of that is Biden’s continued insistence on lying about the circumstances surrounding the horrifying deaths of his wife and daughter in a terrible car accident. It is not the case, as Biden has said on many occasions, that they were killed by a drunk driver, an irresponsible trucker who “drank his lunch,” as Biden put it. That is a pure fabrication, and a slander on the man who was behind the wheel of that truck and who was haunted by the episode until the end of his days. Imagine yourself in the position of that man’s family, whose natural sympathy for Biden’s loss must be complicated by outrage at his persistent lying about the relevant events.

Why would Biden lie about the death of his wife and daughter? Why would he lie about the already-heroic efforts of American soldiers? In both cases, to make the story more dramatic, to give himself a bigger and more impressive narrative arc. That he would subordinate other people — real people, living and dead — to his own political ambition in such a callous and demeaning way counsels strongly against entrusting him with any more political power than that which he already has wielded.

Biden lies about matters great and small. He lies about his trip to Afghanistan. He lies about the death of his wife and daughter. He is wildly dishonest about his role in the Iraq War and the 1994 crime bill, landmark moments in his legislative career that later became political liabilities. And whatever the state of his brain today, he was not senile back in 1987, when he plagiarized the words of Margaret Thatcher and Neil Kinnock for his own speeches. Like his lies, his plagiarism is part of a lifelong habit: As recently as this year, he was filling out his policy papers with uncredited — stolen — material from advocacy groups.

The United States has become an empire of lies. We are governed by liars chosen on the basis of lies, and the worst partisans have begun openly to admire the lies, so long as they are skillfully constructed and delivered. The lowest among us enjoy being lied to and celebrate it. Entire political careers are based on lies — and policy initiatives, too.

But if not the serial liar Joe Biden, then whom will the Democrats choose? Elizabeth Warren, who has misrepresented her supposed Native American ancestry? Kamala Harris, who has lied about murder in order to serve her own political ends? Robert Francis O’Rourke, who cannot tell the truth for five minutes about basic and fundamental questions of public policy?

The Democrats are ready to go into November with nothing better to say for themselves than, “Our liar is better than their liar!”

I am 81 years old and I have no idea of why Biden has problems.

Forget politics, but I have problems of short term memory loss, I can be in the middle of a sentence and forget what I am talking or thinking of.

If I want to tell my wife something important, I need to write it down so I will not forget the topic.

I remember my name, my wife's and all my children and friends and all my numbers from bank accounts to credit card pin number, it is only a short term memory loss.

Even though I am not a Doctor, I think Biden might have the same problem, so if what I understand is correct, he should drop out.

Hold on! He lied about his wife and daughters death? I have not heard this.

I’m mean, heck, very sorry for the loss, but to use it as a means to advance your agenda by lying about it is unconscionable.

I went and looked up the story. His wife pulled out in front of a semi. The driver tried to avoid her but couldn’t.

“ a police investigation of the accident showed that Mrs. Biden pulled into an intersection after she failed to notice an oncoming tractor trailer, which apparently had the right of way.”


And Biden waited until the semi driver died before he accused him of drunk driving.

“Mr. Biden told the crowd at the University of Iowa. "I got elected when I was 29, and I got elected November the 7th. And on Dec. 18 of that year, my wife and three kids were Christmas shopping for a Christmas tree. A tractor-trailer, a guy who allegedly -- and I never pursued it -- drank his lunch instead of eating his lunch, broadsided my family and killed my wife instantly, and killed my daughter”

Again, very sorry for his loss, but to lie like this!?!

What a low life.

Leftists can't come up with a viable candidate to go up against Trump because one doesn't exist. Biden's just one example and yeah, he's a real nutcase, but their problem is who they've become, the Party of Illegals. Everything they stand for is a contradiction of what America stands for and Americans told 'em to go to Hell in 2016. And we're going to do it again in a little over a year...

Various media, including CBS news, at the time reported the driver as drunk. As he was a newly-elected Senator, it made the news.

CBS eventually retracted it in 2009, under pressure from the driver's daughter: CecilDaily (2009) CBS clarifies report on 1972 Biden crash and ran a segment on-air where they admitted that they and other originally reported it as a drunk driver.



Where did CBS and others get it from at the time? I dunno. What we DO know it that the truck driver was never charged. And the former prosecutor (now a judge) who oversaw the investigation has said in recent years, "there's no evidence...". But a prosecutor 'overseeing' an investigation is usually not the first responder on the scene. And saying "there's no evidence" is not exactly the same as affirmatively saying he wasn't. It comes back to, somebody apparently believed otherwise at the time.

But, remember, it was 1972. Drunk driving wasn't taken NEAR as seriously back then. Driver may not have even been tested.

Even back then, the media was biased.

Biden has been a liar and a plagiarist for a long time. It seems to me that he is also not mentally qualified to be president, as well as I don't agree with him on a single thing that I know of. He's an embarrassment to himself (I wonder if he realizes it?), his family, his party. It's time his family stepped in and pulled him out. It's time his wife stepped in and pulled him out. Have they tried and he refuses? I don't know. And while he's an asset to the Republican party in his current state, how can anyone that actually cares about him allow this to continue?

As far as his lies about his wife's and daughter's death go, he was lucid at the time he first made those lies. Lie about something often and long enough and it becomes the truth? How horrible for the truck driver's family! As horrible as it is to face, Mrs. Biden caused that crash, and ruined what was probably a decent man's life as well as her own and her daughter's.
