Lies and the liars who tell them

In American politics spin is ever present. We understand that and to a degree we accept it. But at least for most Republicans, out-and-out lies are completely unacceptable. They say something about the candidate that we believe disqualifies them from holding political office in our land.

Joe Biden – Liar
Perhaps that's his vice

I say "at least for Republicans" because I have watched Democrats grow more and more accepting of spin, half-truths, innuendo, and bold-faced lies over the past 20 years or so. It came to a head with Bill Clinton who lied under oath and admitted it and was still defended by the Democrats—both those in official positions with the Democratic Party and at the grassroots level. It's a shame that they have sunk so low.

But even though those who plan to vote for the Obama/Biden ticket this year will not likely be bothered by the hurtful and manipulative lies of their candidates, I thought it best to cast the spotlight on one of Joe Biden's most recent lies—that his wife was killed by a drunk driver.

Biden has stated this consistently on the campaign trail in spite of the fact that the police who investigated the accident found the driver of the truck to have no fault at all in the accident. In fact, the accident appears to have been caused by Biden's wife—not by "a truck driver who preferred to drink his lunch instead of eat it," as Biden has repeatedly claimed.

Read Inside Edition's Report about this matter. Simply disgraceful.
