Mr Foreign Policy Genius was an outspoken supporter of the War in Iraq, and one of a minority of Democratic Senators to vote for it. But when he had a chance to serve, he was more like Dick Cheney than John Kerry.
Joe Biden received five student draft deferments during the Vietnam War, which is the same number of deferments received by Vice President Dick “Chicken Hawk” Cheney.
After he ran out of student draft deferments, Biden was reclassified by the Selective Service System as “not available for service” because he found a doctor willing to say he had asthma as a teenager.
He was lying:
“In “Promises to Keep,” a memoir that was published last year and became an instant best-seller after he was tapped as Mr. Obama’s running mate, Mr. Biden never mentions his asthma , recounting an active childhood, work as a lifeguard and football exploits in high school.
Biden made somebody else go to fight in Vietnam in his place. Like Dick Cheney, Biden is just another privileged white male who evaded the draft.
And now Biden is lying about his support for the Iraq War.
If Biden wins the nomination, the 2020 election will be President Bone-Spurs ( R) versus Vice-President Asthma (D).
