    Holy crap, a politician asking to be fact-checked is like, like... sheesh, I can't even think of a comparison. These people lie and distort like they breathe.

    Well, one thing was established. The bush wars are funded by borrowed money.

    I could live with the mere spin. If they feel like their own record has been distorted and that things they have said and supported and done are taken out of context by their opponents, they certainly have a right to fight back.

    But some of the shit they say is just so damn palpably false that it makes folks wonder WHY the politicians would bother muttering such crap in the first place. It's not like in THIS day and age in particular, the facts can't be uncovered and quickly exposed.

    Reality check there Mr. Vice President. WHETHER or NOT you "invite" a fact check, you ARE going to get fact checked. So you don't buy ANY credibility by "asking" for a fact check.

    Plagiarist Joe Biden to Press: “Fact Check Me!”

    Posted by Jim Hoft on Saturday, September 8, 2012, 9:11 PM


    Noted plagiarist Joe Biden told the Obama-media in Ohio today: “Fact check me!”


    Okay…
    Today, Vice President Biden Challenged Reporters To “Fact Check” Him:

    Vice President Biden: “I Say To The Press, Fact Check Me!” BIDEN: “What they’re proposing, and this is a fact, I say to the press, fact-check-me!” (Vice President Joe Biden, Remarks, Zanesville, OH, 9/8/12)

    Vice President Biden Claimed That Republicans Were Behind The Demise Of The Simpson-Bowles Debt Commission, A Hypocritical Charge Fact Checkers Have Called “Strange”:

    Vice President Biden Claimed Republicans Were Behind The Demise Of Simpson-Bowles. BIDEN: “They rejected every single attempt to reduce the debt put forward by us, by outside groups and by that bipartisan commission they keep talking about.” (Vice President Joe Biden, Remarks, Zanesville, OH, 9/8/12)

    The Associated Press: President Obama Walked Away From The Simpson-Bowles Recommendation, Which “Ensured The Tough Compromises Would Not Get Made.” “In another instance, Obama appointed a bipartisan group, known as the Simpsons-Bowles Commission, to recommend ways to fix major fiscal problems like Social Security and Medicare. The commission issued its recommendations but fell three votes short of formally endorsing them. And Obama mostly walked away from the report. He later incorporated some of the less contentious proposals from the report into legislation he supported. But that ensured the tough compromises would not get made.” (Matt Apuzzo and Tom Raum, “FACT CHECK: Clinton Claims Of Compromise A Stretch,” The Associated Press, 9/6/12)
    •· The Associated Press: “The Notion That Republicans Are The Only Ones Standing In The Way Of Compromise Is Inaccurate.” (Matt Apuzzo and Tom Raum, “FACT CHECK: Clinton Claims Of Compromise A Stretch,” The Associated Press, 9/6/12)

    CBS News: Obama Did Not Embrace Simpson-Bowles, So It’s “Strange” Biden Decided To Reference It. “But Mr. Obama did not embrace the plan either, which is why it’s strange that Biden decided to make a point of referencing it. It’s true there was never an official final report – thanks in part to Ryan – but the White House certainly did not make the case for the panel’s recommendations.” (Leigh Ann Caldwell, Lindsey Boerma, Stephanie Condon, Lucy Madison, Paula Reid, Brian Montopoli, and Steve Chaggaris, “Fact-Checking Obama, Biden Convention Speeches,” CBS News, 9/7/12)

    ABC: “[T]he White House Failed To Embrace” Simpson-Bowles. “This is an incredible line from the Vice President about the ‘Simpson-Bowles Commission’ considering that the White House failed to embrace it.” (Jake Tapper, “Simpson Bowles Again,” ABC News’s “Political Punch,” 9/6/12)

    Well, they weren't -- ever -- "Bush" wars.

    And since no separate war bonds or other tax was earmarked for the costs of fighting the wars, it has been pretty fucking clear all along that we were funding those costs on debt.

    And since that has been clear all along, the CLAIM by the Administration and the VP that ending the war will "save" the money presently being used to fight the war gets exposed as dishonest tripe. If you step borrowing, you don't suddenly end up with a pile of money. The VP and the President are just liars. Period.

    I just finished a book about the subconscious. Its premise is how our subconscious essentially believes what we tell it, it doesn't make value or accuracy judgments. That would fit with politicians and partisans. They say the same dishonest things over and over, and ultimately they believe it on a cellular, organic level. So really, someone like Biden actually feels they can be fact-checked because they have convinced themselves they're actually speaking "the truth".

    I see a lot of that here.

    That's how lie detectors can be beaten. If you believe something enough, it's the truth to you, when asked the lie detector records the lie as a true statement.
