I’ve had my gripes with FactCheck.org this cycle, but they remind me of another Biden lie/error/hallucination.
Biden wrongly claimed that McCain had said “he wouldn’t even sit down” with the government of Spain. Actually, McCain didn’t reject a meeting, but simply refused to commit himself one way or the other during an interview.
Last night I mentioned, “Biden charges that McCain would not meet with the government of Spain. He didn’t say that; he said he might not have a meeting with Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luiz Rodriguez Zapatero. Considering Zapatero’s past America-bashing on the Spanish campaign trail when it’s politically convenient, that’s an entirely reasonable position for an American president to have.”
I also noted, “Nobody in the Senate has been a better friend to Israel than Joe Biden.” That’s a rather audacious statement coming from a man who, according to Israeli leaders, threatened a total cutoff of aid in 1982.
With these two, I’m up to 24 Biden lies/errors/hallucinations.
