If Biden had his way, all anyone might be talking about on this debate, is the “smirking”…versus policy that is indefensible.
Biden: “WE WILL LEAVE AFGHANISTAN IN 2014.”
I will not stoop to Obama/Biden campaign level and call VP Biden a liar…BUT:
One little-noticed provision of the agreement Obama and Karzai signed Tuesday, however, is that American troops will remain in Afghanistan for not one, not two, not even three more years. They will be there for 12 more years, until 2024, helping. So, John McCain was correct after all about lengthy U.S. troop stationings.
Obama: We look forward to a future of peace. Today we're agreeing to be long-term partners. The pact foresees the possibility of US forces staying behind to train Afghan forces and pursue the remnants of al-Qaeda, but does not commit the US to specific troop or funding levels for Afghanistan.
Possibility? He signed us up through 2024. Vice President Biden…you lied not only to all of us…you lied tonight to your base…I’m smirking at you. Or could it be…that THIS is the first you are hearing of this too?
”I will promise you this, that if we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home. We will bring an end to this war. You can take that to the bank.” -Candidate Barack Obama, October 27, 2007 Welp.” So much for ending the war in Afghanistan. Keeping U.S. troops in Afghanistan virtually guarantees this war will continue until 2024. The Taliban has no interest in negotiating peace while American troops are in Afghanistan. I’m sure this development will make the Military Industrial Complex very happy. No comment on the 1,000 of mercenaries and private army soldiers there too. Or the TAPI Pipeline that needs to be protected. Yet another campaign promise, broken. This resource war trumps that promise. This is the nature of a Unitary Executive. Making “surprise trip” to a war zone to Sign a war pact that affect us all with no input from constituents, or their “representatives” in Congress.
I actually feel bad for you Mr. Biden. I felt you were a good man, with a good heart when I voted for your ticket in ’08. Tonight’s debate truly left me saddened…the good man I have always respected, did not show up tonight. The smirks, Cheshire grins, rolling of the eyes when the Obama policies called out…well…I’ve pointed out just one thing here, but since you brought up saving all those ‘Automotive Industry Jobs…and I know your favorite line is “Osama is dead, and GM is alive”…well, let’s just have a little fact-check on that too:
Oh maybe one more thing you got wrong: Benghazi. Your Boss shot before aiming, and has continued to lie to the American people on what they knew, when they knew, it, what they ignored, and Obama’s response to it…that video excuse, “story line”…come on Mr. Biden. Think of your son Beau…did this not make you throw up just a little in your mouth? Be honest….come on, you can do it…you did it for the entirety of your career up until ‘this job’…look in the mirror again. Your Country needs the old Joe back. Think of Stevens asking for increased security…think if it being witnessed “real time,” and lack of protests/video connections…and again, think of Beau.
One last thing on economy statements you made….7.8% unemployment? Did you shoot before aiming on that? Joe, Joe, Joe…30,000 claims in CA left off? Not to mention the math…come on! It’s like if Obama announced today that “there would be no more Unemployment benefits whatsoever”, and then next day he would be out saying “We’ve achieved 0% unemployment!” Same thing here…huge amount fall off rolls, not counted, percentage goes down, and your boss boasts that as a good outcome?!! One only needs to go to Bureau of Labor & Stats to figure it out!
Up next: Obama asking Lockheed not to send layoff notices to their employees per Obama 90 day notice mandate (LAW Obama got lengthened from 60 days!), AND telling them U.S. taxpayers will pay any legal fees for lawsuits filed by their employees for this unlawful act!
Until then, repetition goes both ways, but most often sticks when it is the truth.
THE SMIRK IS ON YOU.
