Why should we believe anything Joe Biden says? The answer is clear, we shouldn’t.
Joe Biden says what he means though. He means you have to be an Indian to go into a 7-11, he means it when he says, gonna put y’all back in chains, and he even means it when he lies.
The debate lies are mounting.
During last week’s debate, VP Biden lied about his role in the 1983 negotiations over Social Security. It was the same lie he told in 2007 on Meet the Press.
VP Biden’s lie:
“Look, I was there when we did that with Social Security in 1983. I was one of eight people sitting in the room that included Tip O’Neill negotiating with President Reagan. We all got together and everybody said, as long as everybody’s in the deal, everybody’s in the deal, and everybody is making some sacrifice, we can find a way.”
Not only was Joe Biden missing from that room, he wasn’t even a key player.
He was not one of the 15 members of the commission when President Reagan signed their work into law nor was he at the signing ceremony.
When Bob Dole was asked about the VP’s role he said that Biden is a good friend of his but, after racking his brain, he doesn’t remember him being involved.
None of the real key players ever mentioned Joe Biden. Meetings on the record do not mention Joe Biden.
Biden, as a player in social security reform, is mentioned nowhere, including in his own memoir.
In March 1983, a Washington Post editorial heralded the “many heroes in the fight to rescue Social Security,” citing Greenspan, Ball, Moynihan and Dole. Biden is not mentioned.
VP Biden’s office responded to this discovery by ABC reporter, Jake Tapper, by saying that Biden was not saying he was a key player but just that he played a role, having met with Tip O’Neill on the issue. That’s convenient since Tip is deceased and we can’t check with him.

Biden lying in 1988:
What essence? If you are going to lie, why say you were in the top half of the class? That’s not very good. Why not say you graduated magna cum laude or in the top 10%, lol.
1987, Biden borrowing from others with brains:
