Biden. Is he your man?
« on: August 23, 2020, 04:24:59 PM »
Deputy campaign manager says Biden has not been tested for COVID-19

The deputy campaign manager for Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said the former vice president has not been tested for COVID-19 and that he has also not had the virus.

(How in the world would you know you have not had
the virus without testing ?)


Kate Bedingfield told ABC’s “This Week” that Biden has not been tested after the campaign declined to answer this week whether or not he received a test.

Joe Biden faces new plagiarism claim over DNC acceptance speech

That’s sloppy, Joe.

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden reprised his penchant for borrowing lines from other people’s work this week — apparently relying a bit too heavily on the words of a deceased Canuck party leader during his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention, reports said.

Biden concluded his Thursday night speech by saying: “For love is more powerful than hate. Hope is more powerful than fear. Light is more powerful than dark.”

But Canadian media quickly noted that the former veep’s words were uncannily similar to those of Jack Layton, the leader of Canada’s left-wing New Democratic Party, who issued a poignant open letter to his fellow citizens as he lay dying in 2011.

“My friends,” Layton wrote, “Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair.”

Biden’s cribbing habit goes back decades.

In 1987, he withdrew from the Democratic Party’s presidential race in shame after he reportedly ripped off lines from UK Labor Party Leader Neil Kinnock in a debate — and even went so far as to claim elements of Kinnock’s family history as his own.

As a law school student in 1965, Biden flunked a class for repeatedly citing published works without attribution, reports said.

And as recently as last year, Biden caught heat for stealing lines from climate activist groups and using them, word for word, in his own climate change plan — drawing derision from President Trump.

If you missed Michelle’s speech last week, no worries.  You can hear it when Melaina gives it this week.

for president of the U.S.

That whooshing we're hearing is the sound of this going over Hook's head.  :)

Notoc,
I know exactly what spacey meant.
I ignored it because it had nothing to do with
the presidential candidates.

The "whooshing sound" you hear is
the air passing between your empty head.
