Biden Has Amnesia
Antoinette is at the Stove
Good Morning, Breakfastpoppers. Today is Sunday, April 28, 2019. Antoine's twin sister, Antoinette, is joining us for the first time this morning. Antoinette is in the kitchen preparing a French Toast Casserole. I am beside her mixing up Triple Expresso Martinis. It's five o'clock somewhere! Antoinette had the misfortune of catching Joe Biden on the View. It was the meeting of less than great minds. Biden chose this occasion to tell the ladies, the audience and the media that he is most proud of serving in an administration that had not a single trace of scandal. He was referring to the Obama administration. Even the former president probably cringed when he heard Uncle Joe's claim. The ladies gushed, the audience teared up and the rest of us nearly passed out. Biden's memory is failing him or it is highly selective. Let's have breakfast and step back in time. Biden may not remember anything, but we do. Please hurry over as quickly as you can. The casserole is piping hot and the martinis have your names on them. I'll leave the door open.
Oh, No. Joe
Thanks so much for joining us this morning at the table. Antoine has told me so much about all of you. I am delighted to make your acquaintance. Joe Biden is a good old boy who is completely out of place among the current crop of candidates. He does, however, fit right in when it comes to stretching the truth or blowing it up entirely. Uncle Joe appeared on the View which, in my own view, is a crime unto itself. His next mistake was to assert that the Obama administration had not a whiff of scandal. Joe's nose must have been clogged from the pollen in Washington. Obama had plenty of scandals, and most of the American people remember them, even if Uncle Joe doesn't.
No Celebration Required
Let's stroll down memory lane to relive those "great" Obama years. Remember the Iran Deal? The United States and other world powers cooked up a plan to limit Iran's development of nuclear weapons. To pat Iran on the back, we decided to lift economic sanctions. The deal did not include Ballistic missiles. The deal did not preclude Iran from cooperating with North Korea. Never mind any of this. The sanctions were lifted. To top off the sweetness of the deal for Iran, the U.S. flew $1.7 billion to Iran. Four hostages held in Iran were released, making the deal look eerily like a ransom deal. The deal was a fiasco, but Biden seems to have forgotten all about it. Selective memory can be a very convenient flaw.
Uncle Joe appears to have forgotten that Obama officials asked for the identities of associates of Donald Trump who were caught up in our intelligence agencies intercepts of foreign phone calls and emails. This is called "unmasking". Obama surveilled Americans, opponents of his disastrous Iran deal and members of Congress. We are talking about domestic surveillance, and every American ought to be very, very concerned, unlike Biden who doesn't remember a thing.
Clinton's Email Disaster
Dear Uncle Joe can't seem to recall Hillary Clinton's use of an unsecured private server while she served as Secretary of State. The fact that that the U.S. Consulate was attacked during the Obama-Biden years has also slipped his mind. The administration continued to lie about the attack despite concrete evidence that the attack was not a reaction to a video. We shouldn't call this a scandal because it may offend Joe and the ladies on the View. Clinton and her hideous behavior remain a target rich environment to this day. I will not hold my breath waiting for authorities to take aim. Uncle Joe can't even remember that Clinton was Secretary of State. He swears life was peaceful and proud under Obama's watch. Most of the public knows the truth.
A Clandestine Meeting
Remember the absurd meeting between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch on the tarmac? Bill and Loretta just had an urgent need to discuss their grandchildren. They chatted for 45 long minutes about the kids. Lynch did admit that the meeting might have looked suspicious but, she insists, it was innocent. Uncle Joe either doesn't remember the encounter or he thought it was on the up and up.
Speaking about meetings and Cllintons, James Comey drafted a memo in 2016 letting Hillary off the hook about her bleached emails. The problem for Comey and the Obama administration was that the FBI investigation into the matter wasn't complete. Nevermind, Joe doesn't recall a thing.
Just Say No
Looking back can be so enlightening. Lois Lerner and the IRS come to mind. Conservative organizations who applied for tax-exempt status before the elections in 2010 ad 2016 were met with such problems that the end result was that their voices were silenced. Obama came forward to declare that nothing untoward was going on at the IRS. No one except, perhaps Biden believed him.
Obama and Uncle Joe should have turned away from loaning Solyndra more than $500 million from the stimulus program. Taxpayers paid a heavy pricece for that fiasco, but Uncle Joe can't recall a thing.
Ugly, Fast and Furious
During the Obama-Biden reign of terror operation Fast and Furious occurred. The scheme allowed weapons from the U.S. to end up in the hands of gun smugglers. The insane idea was the hope that the guns could be traced back to the Mexican drug cartels. Unfortunately, the inept Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives lost complete track of the arms. Two of the guns were found at the scene of the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Apparently, Joe Biden doesn't consider this travesty to be a scandal.
Our Forgotten Soldiers
Apparently, Joe Biden has forgotten many things about his tenure as Vice President under Obama. One of the worst scandals that occurred under his watch was the complete failure of the VA to provide adequate medical care to our veterans. The Phoenix VA system was in the news all the time. Veterans died waiting for care that never came.
So, Uncle Joe you have a lot to catch up on. Your assertion that there were no scandals during your years under Obama is pure fantasy. You can run, but you won't be able to hide.
Let's go children of the homeland
We must wake up to the truth
Biden is lost in space
He shouldn't be in the race!
