Quote Of The Week

"It didn't happen,"..."I hate to say this, but he's a serial exaggerator. If I was being unkind, I would say liar, but it is a habit he ought to drop."

Karl Rove on Joe Biden's latest trip down fantasy lane.

The Vice President, known to be... how do I put this?... "inaccurate"... at times is now saying that on several occasions he spent long afternoons giving President George Bush a piece of his mind.

The only problem with his latest fantasy is that every person in the Bush White House from Karl Rove down to the woman who waters the plants has said that these sessions and criticisms never happened.

What was the damning evidence the Veep's spokesman have to support the claims?

Nothing.

Biden spokesman Jay Carney declined to specify the dates of his boss's purported Oval Office scoldings of Bush. Nor would he provide witnesses or notes to corroborate the episodes.

"The vice president stands by his remarks," Carney told FOX News without elaboration.

Good enough for me. I believe him.

Honestly, Chuck; If I were Biden, I wouldn't risk giving ANYBODY a 'piece of my mind'...there's not much there to begin with!

Amazing, that this clown is the vice president and the left were banging on about Cheney.

One wonders where exactly the MSM were when this clown was pulled in next to the other clown, hussein during the campaign. Oh yeah, they were busy digging dirt on Palin and when they couldn't find much, they were just making shit up.

"I hate to say this, but he's a serial exaggerator. If I was being unkind, I would say liar...."

You could extend that to a lot of scumbags out there in politics and in the media.

Biden has long been known as one of the most run-off-at-the-mouth politicians in Washington.

Now we observe that his incredible statements are no longer restricted to Capitol Hill. He's doing the same kind of thing as Vice President.

Also, Biden is much worse than most other politicians when it comes to spouting off and telling lies. He makes up statements and incidents from whole cloth!

I can't help but believe that BHO knew about Bloviating Biden and possibly even chose him for that reason. We are living in the days of venerate BHO and all his associates, no matter what they do or don't do and what they say or don't say.

Biden is but one of many high placed individuals, who tend to embellish their contributions because in the actual accomplishment of important deeds, they are found wanting. We may even regard some of these people as pathological liars, although “pathetic liar” may be more appropriate. Recall how Gore took credit for inventing the internet, and Hillary Clinton claims she was fired upon while making one of her boondoggles to the Middle East.

But I believe this is a malady caused their profession: let’s face it — they lie for a living. In fact, the problem is so pervasive, I predict that in time, pathological embellishment may be included in the Americans with Disabilities Act warranting additional compensation and special access to media cameras. It is always “good copy.”

Z, that is too funny.

MK, it was the same with Algore, he was an idiot too but they made him out to be a genius. Course the bar is set a little lower for libs.

NY Guy, thanks. I think that's macho for a lib though.

AOW, reading your comment, I have a thought. Did Obama take him to make himself look good in comparison?

Mustang, good points. Lying is a bit of an occupational hazard isn't it?

Don't plan on seeing anything come of this for the general public to see. Biden's handlers and the MSM are one and the same.

Chuck said...

Kris, welcome and thanks for stopping by. You are right, no danger of the media carrying this.

If a Democrat says that it happened it happened. Don't you know anything about media?

Biden is an idiot.
