This is the guy who called WikiLeaks' Julian Assange an international terrorist, while proclaiming that the Egyptian dictator, Mubarak, was NOT a dictator?
And his son, Beau, when he was attorney general of Delaware, proclaimed that the du Pont family member who was convicted of sexually assaulted his two-year-old and three-year-old children, shouldn't have to serve any prison time, that an 8-year parole was justifiable?
Like father, like son, so they say . . . . [and sometimes, // they \\ are correct].
And Biden also, just several weeks before the 2017 presidential election, went before the Council on Foreign Affairs and promised them somehow or other he would get that TransPacific Partnership passed - - a real man of the people?!?!?
And Joe, as a senator, voted for that Bush bankruptcy bill, making the law that students COULDN'T declare bankruptcy to discharge any onerous [and frequently useless] student loans - - thanks, Joe! [That legislation also gave primary preference to the bondholders - - or super-rich - - in collecting any and all debt!]
And Joey's other son [always forget that character's name] drank at the taxpayers' trough when he was granted a position as a Public Affairs Officer in the US Naval Reserve [meaning no training required, automatic appointment] which meant an exemption, since Joey's #2 son was normally too old, and which, after receiving too many months' of pay, was finally kicked out after flunking each and every drug test administered [loser cokehead].
Yup, the saintly Joe Biden . . . .
