Biden is a gutsy fellow. He agreed to debate the indomitable Donald John Trump on national TV. Of course, all the moderators will be Trump haters like Bolshevik Chris Wallace, but not to worry, Biden may suffer from dementia and can’t remember what city he’s in, but he’ll have help from the moderators who will no doubt throw sleepy, creepy, senile Joe softballs while asking Trump when did he stop beating his wife questions. Gotcha! Gotcha! And Joe wants “fact checkers”. Like the liars at Trump hater Bezos’ Washington Compost? Those fact checkers? Live fact checkers. Well that could have come in handy when Biden was plagiarizing speeches word for word from Kinnock in 1987 in his run for Presidency:
“Why am I the first Kinnock in a thousand generations to be able to get to university? [Pointing to his wife in the audience:] Why is Glenys the first woman in her family in a thousand generations to be able to get to university? Was it because all our predecessors were thick?”
“why is it that Joe Biden is the first in his family ever to go to a university? [Pointing to his wife in the audience:] Why is it that my wife who is sitting out there in the audience is the first in her family to ever go to college? Is it because our fathers and mothers were not bright?”
Well, he did change one word…so I guess that’s not really plagiarism.
Just so you folks are clear – the following is from RealClearPolitics:
“He [Biden] lifted Mr. Kinnock’s closing speech with phrases, gestures and lyrical Welsh syntax intact for his own closing speech,” Dowd reported for the New York Times.
As reporters dug deeper, they found more. Biden didn’t just steal Kinnock’s political rhetoric, he appropriated his life story, including a coal mining grandfather. This was worse than it looked: Kinnock’s Welsh grandfather did work in the mines. Biden’s, although he lived in Pennsylvania coal country, sold cars. Did Biden believe that British politics was so removed from Americans’ experience that he could get away with it? Maybe, but if that were the case, Biden wouldn’t have ripped off lines almost directly from John F. Kennedy and his brother, Robert Kennedy.
Referring to the gross national product during a Feb. 3, 1987, speech in California, Biden said, “This standard is not a measure of how we can evaluate the condition of our society. It cannot measure the health of our children, the quality of our education. The joy of their play.” His words closely mirrored those of Robert Kennedy, who said the following during a March 18, 1968 speech in Kansas: “the gross national product does not allow for the health of our children, the quality of their education or the joy of their play.”
On June 9, 1987, when declaring his candidacy, Joe Biden said, “Let us pledge that our generation of Americans will pay any price, bear any burden, accept any challenge, and meet any hardship to secure the blessings of prosperity, and the promise of opportunity, for our children.” Biden’s words were not attributed to President John F. Kennedy, who famously said during his Jan. 20, 1961, inaugural address: “We shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any fall, to assure the survival, and the success of liberty.”
Biden wants real time “fact checkers” for Trump. I just hope the debate isn’t too big a strain for sleepy Joe and perhaps we could also use a medic a “pulse checker” to make sure he’s still there! Trump has been known to exaggerate. To make broad statements. The Democrats and their media allies tell us he lies. He’s not factual. But thank God we have Biden and the Democrat Plagiarists to set us all straight!
