Biden reveals brush with gun massacre
washington times ^ | 1/17/13 | Dave Boyer

Posted on 01/17/2013 4:46:08 PM PST by ColdOne

Mr. Biden told a U.S. Conference of Mayors meeting in Washington that it was “pure coincidence” that he was in Lancaster County, Pa., on Oct. 2, 2006, when a deranged gunman was killing students nearby at a tiny Amish school.

“I happened to be literally — probably, it turned out, to be a quarter of a mile [away] at an outing when I heard gunshots in the woods,” Mr. Biden recounted. “We didn’t know. … We thought they were hunters.”

“deranged” and “Biden” are always in close proximity to one another.

Bullshit lie until documented proof otherwise. Biden has a history of lying to embellish his otherwise meaningless life.

He was the lone survivor of the little Bighorn.

In fact he carried Custer’s body all the way back to Monroe Michigan to Custer’s widow.

So, now we can expect every "massacre" to have the implement(s) as a modifier.

I guess what is going on with the economy, unemployment and people generally being robbed of their net worth, self esteem and hope could be called an "Obama massacre".

hinckley buzzard~:” The Amish I grew up with had long guns.”

Since they don’t have electricity or radios ,..should we tell them about the latest edict from the “Emperor “ ?
or
Just let them find out ?

Well, Biden is very close to a disaster every time he sits or stands next to Obama, but then, Biden is also a disaster for the country.

More people have died as a result of Obama's lack of leadership, than died in that Amish massacre.

Joe, you worthless sack of excrement, you are not a little Amish school girl, so you were in no danger. I doubt you were within 50 miles of that school.

Honestly, these press hogs have no shame.

Varmints go after Amish livestock and eat Amish crops.

The Amish neighbor I had up north said there was no strict prohibition on hunting but it was generally seen as less productive than farming. He did say that when a deer was killed to protect crops it didn’t go to waste.

I imagine there is a greatly increased risk of a tragic incident in the crowd every time crazy Joe appears in front of a live audience. There should always be a clearly open exit provided at every event for individuals to escape through. Talk about a walking nimbus cloud.

I never told anyone this, but I was right next to Joe Biden on the exact day at the exact moment when his brain was actually living in the real world.

Only a split second, it was. A flash of sun. And then it passed. Then the earth shook, the sky was black again.

I was talking to an Amish neighbor last year when a cellphone starts ringing in his pocket.He answers,has a short conversation and hangs up.Just the wife calling to see when he’d be home for dinner.

In 1848 Joe Biden tried to stop Claude-Étienne Minié from selling his newly invented Minie ball but republican death mongers who stood to make big money off their investment obstructed his valiant attempt.

Oh, that was just perfect! Good timing.

Old Plugs....how the heck did this idiot get to this position? Hmmmmm...I remember now reading about top executives—”A’s” always picked “A’s” to work for them. Lower in talent/smarts...the worse the underling. Sums up Down Low Barry, affirmative action, 3rd year transfer from crappy Oxy with crappy grades, to Columbia.

This is looking more like a Tom Wolfe novel all the time.

Blowhard nails it.

I don’t know much about his wife, but she always looks like somebody gave her a mental beatdown. I wonder if old Joe is as bad in his personal life as he appears in public? Can you IMAGINE having to hear his loads of bs every day, over and over again?

Joe “Manti” Biden was at a golf course 1/4 mile away from the one-room schoolhouse in the old Amish community of Nickel Mines, in the village of Bart Township of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania where 10 children (girls) were shot and 5 died?

The only thing that happened in the Biden family on October 2 2006 was news that Beau Biden failed his bar exam 3 times.

The closest golf course to the one-room schoolhouse is the Moccasin Run Golf Club, Chester, PA about 5 miles away. Nice small family run course that opened in 1988. Call them and ask if Biden played there.

I will save you the trouble, they said no. The owner was very friendly and laughed it off. He checked his data base on his computer to be sure (as he was laughing) and sure enough no Biden ever been there. Said he would of remembered that.

He also confirmed he is the closest golf course to the one-room school house and next one would be in quarryville about 10-15 miles away.

You would think Joe “Manti” Biden would of mentioned it before or in his book. But no, now he stands on the graves of Amish children to make a point.

Joe “Manti” Biden never played college football and was not a 1/4 mile away from the schoolhouse shooting. Them are the facts.

from Brietbart:

In a followup report, the Washington Times found that there aren’t any golf courses close enough to the Amish school for golfers to have heard gunshots from so far away.

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.

At ten miles’ distance, the only other golf course is even farther away. Both courses are apparently too far away for golfers to have heard gunshots that were fired inside a school building.
