Fact-checking Joe Biden

Jim Hoft over at Gateway Pundit noted Vice President Joe Biden encouraged the press to fact-check his statements on Romney’s Medicare plan – discussed here – and took the liberty to remind the VP the press has been fact-checking him.

Hoft’s short list is here, but I’d like to remind Jim and our readers of Biden’s attempt to convince people the number of rapes in Flint, Mich. had skyrocketed. It was his attempt to get the “Jobs” bill passed, claiming the hold-up of the bill would result in even more murders and rapes, when around the country violent crime, including murder and rape, has been down.

More here, but you should really read my original post on the subject back in Oct. 2011.

    Biden is out there blowing smoke and blathering about whatever drivel comes to his mind. Joe’s mind must be a very scary place. He does serve the Democrat ticket well, though. He keeps some of the attention off of Obama. Just search the number of Biden jokes, cartoons and Biden-isms. Some are actually hilarious until you realize what his purpose is.
    Every moment spent fact checking Joe is a moment lost keeping track of the actions? of the worst American president ever. Like forcibly transferring 2 million Medicare recipients to a voucher system. Voucher Beta 1.0?
    That works for the Democrats.

    Checking for facts in what Biden says must be a bit like counting native banana trees in Alaska.

    Biden exemplifies the “useful idiot”.? Biden and facts are mutually exclusive concepts.
