ABC News - Jake Tapper:

Campaigning for president in New Hampshire in 1987, Biden admitted he had misstated several facts about his resume after a man named Frank questioned his Syracuse Law School resume.

''I think I have a much higher I.Q. than you do," Biden responded.

He added that he ''went to law school on a full academic scholarship - the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship,'' adding that he ''ended up in the top half'' of his class (not true) and ''graduated with three degrees from college" (not true).

Five months later, Biden acknowledged that he graduated 76th in a class of 85.

''I did not graduate in the top half of my class at law school and my recollection of this was inaccurate," he said in a statement. He graduated with one degree -- a B.A.-- in two majors, history and political science.

''I exaggerate when I'm angry,'' Biden told the New York Times,'

I'm very curious to see if Joe Biden still believes what he told me three years ago about the War on Terror-

Joe Biden 2005:

"The Lord Almighty, or Allah, whoever, if he came to every kitchen table in America and said,
'Look, I have a Faustian bargain for you, you choose. I will guarantee to you that I will end all terror threats against the United States within the year, but in return for that there will be no help for education, no help for Social Security, no help for health care. What do you do?' My answer is that seventy-five per cent of the American people would buy that bargain."

Joe Biden 1988:

The White House isn't the place to learn how to deal with international crisis, the balance of power, war and peace, and the economic future of the next generation.

A President has got to know the territory...

So, Why is Joe Biden running with a jr Senator that in his own words "needs on the job training"?

Is it just the lust for more power that's escaped him for 20 years?

Are we seeing why he almost was thrown out of Law School?

No I think it's the Dumbocrats who have the money and hence the tax breaks. I think that the Dumbocrats run the House and the Senate. They have said for three and four years how things are doing fine in the housing market while the Dumbocrat CEO's of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, Lehman Brothers et al lined their Dumbocrat pockets and left us with 700 BILLION worth of debt. Please look up those CEO's of those companies and guess whose campaign committees they are on or have helped. Sorry I forgot you are a Dumbocrat so you wouldn't be able to guess so I will help you. NOBAMA!

John McCain staffs his campaign with a Who’s Who of America’s top corporate lobbyists. Their clients include big oil, telecom giants, the defense industry, and foreign dictators. Even McCain told the Associated Press that “When a campaign employs an individual who also lobbies that member, the perception of undue and unfair influence is raised.”

John McCain flip-flopped on lobbyist reform. In 2005, McCain introduced a law that required “disclosure of activities of paid lobbyists.” But conservative groups, led by James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, assembled a coalition to defeat that language. As part of his aggressive efforts to curry favor with this group, McCain reversed his stand and decided to gut his own bill.

THE SAME OLD WASHINGTON POLITICS: Despite claiming to be a reformer, John McCain has a long history of giving favors to the lobbyists and special interests who support him:

From the Keating 5 scandal in the 1980s to the Paxson debacle in the 1990s, Senator McCain has been caught in a repeated cycle of using his power to do favors for cronies.

As Chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee, Senator McCain consistently gave favors to large telecom companies who financially supported him.

Senator McCain has advocated for billions of dollars of wasteful earmarks in government legislation.

Again, it's called pandering and McCain is doing the same thing with Daddy Yankee, so get off the high horse here. Besides, what do you think McCain did by choosing Palin as his running mate? It must have been to pander to women, disgruntled Clinton supporters, and the neocon bas, because he could of sure as hell picked a more qualified VP candidate.
Just because I don't like Obama doesn't mean I automatically support McCain. I support a third party candidate.

Same goes for Biden and Palin...both farce vp candidates.

Don't be so closed-minded, you republicrat scum.

I'll stay on my high horse for now, thank you.

The canidates this year are not good, but it is what we have. You can just not vote if you dislike both canidates. I also can't stand Eve L. since she is married to a French cheating husband, so I know I won't be voting for who she supports. USA, USA!

The McCain campaign has yet to deny the rumor that the back of John's head was replaced by half a gryphon egg, polished to a high shine.

The American people deserve to know if either (a) they aborted a gryphon embryo/baby or (b) it's going to hatch one day and devour everyone in the room at some campaign event.

Keep your eyes on the egg.

By saying 'both candidates' you imply that there are only two presidential candidates on the ballot.

There are actually going to be six choices on the NM ballot this year:
-Obama/Biden, Democrats
-McCain/Palin, Republicans
-Baldwin/Castle, Constitution Party
-Nader/Gonzalez, independent
-McKinney/Clemente, Green Party
-Barr/Root, Libertarian

I was thinking of either Barr or Baldwin, but I guess you're right. If I will not support Obama or McCain I just shouldn't vote.

Once again, quit being so closed-minded.
