Amateur Hour

Biden is either completely dishonest or completely delusional.

He outright lied about his votes on Iraq and Afghanistan. He blamed the "Great Recession" on "two wars put on a credit card" and tax cuts for the wealthy. Constantly labeling them the "Bush Tax Cuts."

First, this graph

As you can see, the deficits were declining under Bush, even with these two wars that got near unanimous bi-partisan approval, including votes from Biden and Hillary.

Second, Obama extended those Bush tax cuts saying "you don't raise taxes in a recession." So now it seems like he owns these tax cuts.

The most damning thing that Biden was less than honest about last night was Libya. This is a country where troops were sent without Congressional approval (remember when Bush shredded the Constitution?). We were dragged in to a country to depose a tyrant who had voluntarily surrendered his nuclear program. Then once we are there, there are cables detailing threats and asking for security forces to not be withdrawn that were either rejected or ignored. A request for a DC-10 to be stationed there for rapid evacuation was similarly not fulfilled.

Biden says the administration did not know these requests were made. There is blood on someones hands

It is deja-vu all over again...

Eric Holder did not know the specifics of Fast and Furious, he never read those memos

Stephen Chu did not know about the questions surrounding the viability of Solyndra's business model

Who is in charge? Who is responsible? Where are the adults? At some point the lack of leadership at DOJ, DOE and State dept has to reflect poorly upon the chief executive. That is before we even address the hair plugged buffoon who he put a heartbeat away from the Presidency.
