    "Joe Biden attacked Paul Ryan for his votes to support two wars as the reason for the massive deficits we now face. Biden also claimed to have voted against both. The only problem with that argument is that it’s entirely false."

    "I was there, I voted against them,” Biden continued. “I said, no, we can’t afford that.”
    Then Sen. Biden voted for the Afghanistan resolution on Sept. 14, 2001 which authorized “the use of United States Armed Forces against those responsible for the recent attacks launched against the United States.”
    And on Oct. 11, 2002, Biden voted for a resolution authorizing unilateral military action in Iraq, according to the Washington Post."

    Yeah I heard that and I thought I also heard a tweak/change in his voice knowing that he was lying. I don't know his record, but like I said when I heard him say that I swear I thought I heard a change in his voice and that made me think "wow, I bet he just lied." What do you know... Dems are JUST like Republicans, lol.

    When he said that I was hoping Ryan would call him on it, but even if he did Biden would have cut him off again or the moderator.

    Biden lied about his war votes


    It does not matter. Romney lied his ass off in the first debate and established that lying is perfectly "fair" and acceptable in the "new" debate ground rules of 2012. If Mittens and Ryan wanted a civil debate series they should have been civil.

    Now they will find out what it is like to fight in a back alley. "knee to the groin?" No problem. "sand in the eyes?" standard proceedure. RW's cheat because that is the only way they can access power. Now they must combat smarter people that normally fight fair but when pressed are far better opponents than the newGOPers can imagine. The next two debates will be bloody. If I was Romney I would have an ambulance standing by.

    The accusation that 'Romney lied' in the debate has been made almost continuously from that night, but yet I've not seen anyone produce the 'lies' that they accuse him of.

    Do you think you could point out to us what SPECIFIC lies you think he told, with PROOF?

    Or should we all just take your word for it?
