VP Biden says he heard Nickel Mines shooting gunshots
Lancaster online ^ | 1-23-2013 | KAREN SHUEY

It's no secret that Vice President Joe Biden has made more than a few gaffes during his political career.

His latest: a hard-to-prove comment about a brush with the 2006 school shooting at Nickel Mines.

Speaking last week to the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington, D.C., Biden made the surprising revelation that he was golfing within earshot of the one-room schoolhouse when a troubled truck driver shot 10 Amish girls, killing five and wounding five.

Its a ridiculous claim.

If you’re more than a few hundred yards away, you’re unlikely to hear gunshots inside a building.

Dear Mr. Biden:

This is your ass:

This is a hole in the ground:

Please learn to distinguish the two.

Too bad crazy uncle Joe can’t be premanently locked in the attic. And this guy is a heartbeat away from the presidency for the next four years.

I’m sure he’ll recall in the near future that he was also on the tarmac with Hillary that time, ducking bullets and running for his life.

If he used “literally” (almost certainly incorrectly) in his claim, DRINK!

Probably on the tarmac with Obambi's composite-of-three-women girlfriend ducking bullets.

..."a troubled truck driver..."

I get so sick of these wimpy euphemisms.

I was "troubled" when I could not find my car keys.

My wife was troubled, while at the restaurant, to discover that she had left her credit card & wallet at home.

The truck driver/shooter was an evil, insane murderer!

"Troubled" my foot!

Idiot "journalists"!

If he was so close, he could have arrived before the first responders. Yet, strangely, he apparently headed for the next tee or the clubhouse.
‘Splain that one, Joe.

I find it amazing that politicians all seem to want to be within about 5 degrees of any major event.
Hillary was named for Sir Edmond Hillary four years before he climbed Everest.
Hillary spiraled down into an airport under fire when there was no fire.
Bill Clinton remembered church burnings in Arkansas when none burned.
John Kerry remembered cruising down the river in Cambodia when no troops were in Cambodia.
Joe Biden was within ear shots of a school shooting while playing golf at a golf course many miles away.

Actually, the “gunshot reports” he heard were the farts he was emitting, just before he crapped his Senatorial Depends, once again...

Is Biden the real-life person John Lovitz based his “Compulsive Liar” character on? Seriously - Biden is so far off the plantation (while it is apparently quite normal and acceptable for Democrats to lie - at least Clinton and Obama do it with “style” and make their lies sound plausible) that he cannot even tell a believable lie.

Just like he lied that the driver of the truck that killed his wife and daugther was drunk.

The sad reality is that the Vice President of the United States is a chronic, unrepentant liar. There’s no polite way of saying it. The media pass it off as a “gaffe” or “Joe being Joe”, but it is intentional on Biden’s part and it is insidious. it is also long-standing. Here’s a reminder from the 1988 campaign when the Dukakis campaign torpedoed Biden:

“Democratic presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden Jr., a U.S. senator from Delaware, was driven from the nomination battle after delivering, without attribution, passages from a speech by British Labor party leader Neil Kinnock. A barrage of subsidiary revelations by the press also contributed to Biden’s withdrawal: a serious plagiarism incident involving Biden during his law school years; the senator’s boastful exaggerations of his academic record at a New Hampshire campaign event; and the discovery of other quotations in Biden’s speeches pilfered from past Democratic politicians.

The controversy became two frenzies in one when it was disclosed that the campaign of Massachusetts Gov. Michael S. Dukakis had earlier secretly distributed to several news media outlets an “attack video” juxtaposing the Biden and Kinnock speeches and revealing Biden’s word theft”

I thought I saw you there, but I wasn't certain so I didn't say hello.

My apologies.

Hear rifle fire almost every day. During the 4th of July, watched over a dozen private fireworks shows from my door. And they were pretty good ones. But hey, this is Texas.

Yeah Gunfire is pretty much part of the everyday background noise in rural Michigan as well.

And we sure do not want the Michigan deer hunters mistaking gun grabbers for deer. But then again, what difference would it make ?

I saw the Titanic sink but something always told me never to talk about it to all but the closest people.

Then one day James Cameron arrived at my doorstep saying he had “a lead”.

I told him to get off my lawn...
