After watching the VP debate last night, I was very pleased with the outcome. Even with a few slip ups and misspoken names from Governor Palin, I thought she was very fluent with the questions launched at her. I think she could have attacked Obama rather than Biden more. We all know that both Senators (Obama and Biden) are very smart men, but we are all in a consensus that Biden has many stupid remarks and many nonfactual “facts.”
One example on the debate last night that was just an outright lie from our (trusted) Senator Biden was his “fact” that the “government has spent more money in three weeks in Iraq than they have during the entire time spent in Afghanistan.” This is just ABSURD! Three weeks in Iraq equates to nine-billion dollars. Our entire time spent in Afghanistan equates to 179 Billion dollars. This is an exaggeration of TWENTY TIMES! I do not know if Senator Biden passed elementary school, but to my knowledge, 9 billion dollars is substantially lower than 179 billion dollars. What makes this worse is Biden repeating this THREE TIMES!! It astounds me that he can be so smart and so wrong at the same time. This is just so surprising how extremely intelligent people can be so far from the truth that they are willing to believe the truths that they create.
Senator Biden is a very intelligent man, but he has not mastered the skill of the “Think before you speak” tactic.
I was upset with how the polling went. People said that Biden won the debate, but in my book, Governor Palin exceeded all of our expectations and she deserves the victory for this battle well fought.
