Our country’s highest elected politician known to be a plagerizer and habitual liar has been caught in another lie according to the Washington Times which claims that Biden told some of the nation’s mayors that he was playing golf a quarter mile from the site of an Amish school shooting in 2006 in which five children were killed and five others were injured. So close that he heard the shots;
But a search of maps of the area in Lancaster County, Pa., shows the nearest golf course to the site of the shooting, Moccasin Run Golf Club, is about five miles away. Rodney King, the golf pro at Moccasin Run, said Friday he was working at the course on the day of the shooting and never saw Mr. Biden, who was then a U.S. senator.
“There’s a lot of things here that I find hard to believe,” Mr. King said. “I looked in my database, and he [Mr. Biden] is not in my database.”
Even if Mr. Biden had played at the course that day, Mr. King said, “It’s very far-fetched that he would have heard it.”
“I know he didn’t hear those gunshots,” Mr. King said. “They were inside the school. Even if they were outside, he wouldn’t have heard them.”
A spokeswoman for the vice president did not return a request seeking comment Friday. Mr. Biden told the story as he was describing for the mayors’ group the Obama administration’s efforts to enact new gun-control laws.
But, you know it COULD have happened, you know if they hadn’t put the golf course so far from the school and if the shooter had done his killing outside, and if Biden was in the same state at the time of the shooting.
The Times reports that it’s not the first time that Biden made shit up to place himself in danger;
While running for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2007, Mr. Biden said in a debate that he had been “shot at” during a trip to Iraq. Pressed by reporters, he eventually described three incidents on two separate Iraq trips in which he felt that he was shot at or might have been shot at.
He ended up revising his description by saying: “I was near where a shot landed.”
Yeah, well, whatever. Aides later said that Biden heard some outbound mortar fire once while he was in Iraq. That’s just like getting shot at, though. Well, except that the rounds were headed the other way from where he was standing, but, ya know, when you’re the smartest man in the world, you can’t be bother with ordinal directions and stuff.
I can just imagine the media frenzy this will create. Day and night, 24 hours coverage of Biden telling a whopping big lie to influence legislation with what I’m sure he thinks gives him some sort of morale authority in the gun discussion. Oh, wait, Biden is a Democrat isn’t he, so never mind.
