Live Fact Check
Vice Presidential Debate: St Louis



10:17 p.m.
Biden claimed that Obama warned against the administration's decision to push for Hamas participating in Palestinian legislative elections in early 2005. Obama had only been a senator for a few days when the election took place, but if he made such statements they did not appear in news reports or transcripts that are contained in the Nexis or Factiva news databases.
.....
10:04 p.m.
Sen. Joseph Biden asserted in his debate that Sen. John McCain opposed the comprehensive nuclear test ban, a treaty that virtually every other Republican supported. That is false. President Clinton never submitted the test ban for formal ratification because it faced overwhelming Republican opposition in a GOP-controlled Senate.
.....
9:33 p.m.
Joe Biden mischaracterized McCain's proposal for giving Americans a tax credit to pay for their own health insurance programs in return for taxing the health benefits they receive from employers. He suggested that the average American family would lose around $7,000 on the deal, receiving a $5,000 tax credit in return for having to pay $12,000 for their own health care program.

In fact, the non-partisan Tax Policy Center has calculated that most American families would come out slightly ahead for the next decade at least. Higher-income Americans with expensive health care plans would be somewhat worse off after 2018.
....
9:29 p.m.
Sen. Joseph Biden accused John McCain of offering big oil companies $4 billion in tax breaks. That is misleading. The figure comes from the share that the oil companies would get from McCain's corporate income tax cut proposal. He has not proposed a tax break solely for oil companies.

Dee said...

Biden: I have been able to work across the aisle. Mansfield said everyone sent here for reason. dont question motive of people you disagree. work bipartisan. fundamental change barack and biden.

Palen: appoint people regardless of affiliation. walk the walk. talk the talk. end of the day. work together for greater good.

and the sun will come up tomorrow. tomorrow. bet your bottom dollar on tomorrow. come what may.

Dee said...

palen: And I'm proud to be an American
Where at least I know I'm free.
And I won't forget the men who died
Who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up next to you
And defend her still today.
Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land.
God bless the U. S. A.


(did she make this up??)

Now, please show everybody where Palin said this. Here is the link to the transcript of the entire debate.

Transcript of Palin, Biden debate

Your a BIASED, IGNORANT, HACK. Your a party line voter who cares nothing about what either candidate has said or is saying.

Dee said...

Biden: Taught their children if you believe in yourself anything is possible!
God Bless America!
God Protect Our Troops!

Dee said...

Hey Joe. Can I call you Joe?!?

Dee said...

Liquid,

Wink Wink
Back At Ya!

Dee said...

Liquid,
I made an almost direct quote!!!
Ha Ha!!

From your link:

PALIN: "And I may not answer the questions that either the moderator or you want to hear."

Dee said...

She did not answer the questions. She was so scripted that she only had the scripted answers to provide!

Dee said...

Wink Wink
Recite the Scripts she was provided!!

So very scripted!!

Dee said...

Palin: Your joke was lame. Nobody Got IT!

Wink Wink

Bac at Ya!

Liquidmicro said...

'refuse' is much different than 'I may not', meaning she may not answer the question directly or that she may answer the question her way.

Liquidmicro said...

Here is her exact quote of which you take completely out of context.

"PALIN: I'm still on the tax thing because I want to correct you on that again. And I want to let you know what I did as a mayor and as a governor. And I may not answer the questions that either the moderator or you want to hear, but I'm going to talk straight to the American people and let them know my track record also."

Dee said...

Liquid,
wink wink.
say it aint so Liquid.
dog gone it.

Back at ya!!

Dee said...

May I call you Liquid???

Dee said...

Neeeyouucleeaarrr, Neeeyouucleeaarrr,
Neeeyouucleeaarrr,

May I call you Liquid?
Say it aint so Liquid!
Back at ya!!

Wink Wink!!

Dee said...

Ifill: "As Vice President, there's nothing you've promised as a candidate that you would take off the table because of this financial issue?"

Palin: "There is not, and how long have I been at this? Like five weeks?"

Dee said...

Sarah Palin got both the commanding general in Afghanistan's name and position WRONG!!

Dee said...

Joe Biden demonstrated knowledge, careful thought, and a willingness to make hard decisions. And with every answer, he proved Senator Obama's judgment and showed why he is considered one of our nation's wisest and most experienced leaders.

He was equally at home with global and local issues, demonstrated an amazing grasp of facts, and gave proof that he is prepared to be a partner who will contribute much as vice-president to solving our nation's problems.

Americans could not help but conclude that any president would be stronger and more confident with Joe Biden by his side.

Dee said...

Who did the best job in the debate:
Biden 51%
Palen 34%

Dee said...

Palin re Bush & McCain record: Past is irrelevant.

I have never seen such sarcasm and distortions from you as in this topic, dee. Were you tipping a few when you made all of these posts? I am serious. I am not trying to be mean. It is just an observation.

Can you imagine if a catastrophe happens and this woman becomes president...

"My Fellow Americans, Joe Six Pack and Soccer Moms, right back atcha."

As opposed to if Obama becomes President, then a catastrophe happens?

Dee said...

Pat,
Actually we had a Debate party at my house last night. No drinking, just a few Obama supporters and a tepid Mccain supporter who decided to leave early. LOL. We had a very fun time!

When SP made the comment about not answering (to which we said in unison "Oh No She didn´t!"), I swung my laptop on with my friends encircling and we typed away. It was fun!

Dee said...

MATTHEWS: But for a while there I thought I was listening to a person recite to the point and I mean recite speech parts, to the point I thought I was watching a spelling-bee. It was so reciting. So automatic. It sounded like a spelling-bee where you read each word out, you recite the word, give the spelling, give the word back again, exactly the way you were taught. I think it sounded a bit automatic, but let's leave it to the viewers. Some people might find that bracing.

Dee said...

Anon,
Distracted?

If you are a long time reader of my blog you know that the Immigration issue is but a component of the overall issue, the Global Economy. The Administration and Big Business are connected at the hip. The last 8 years have been devastating to our country. We do not want 4 more of the last 8 years. Therefore it is important for me and all bloggers to stay on top of both the Election and the Economy.

Which would be the truth?

ultima said...

1. Obama is for a responsible withdrawal from Iraq which may not be possible in the time frame he proposes.
2. Obama needs to think about a responsible withdrawal from his grandiose spending plans. The trillion dollar bailout + pork plus Obama's spending plans of another trillion is grossly irresponsible given the current financial crisis,our huge national debt and perennial deficit budgets.
3. Biden, before he flip flopped, basically said the same thing as Palin regarding the vice presidency. He figured to use his long tenure in the senate to harangue and bend the ears of the senators but when Palin proposed an equally activist role, he flip-flopped. So much for his candor on that subject.
4. Liquid made a good point about the $4 billion tax cut for corporations to bring their rate closer to those of our competitors abroad. Obama said the loopholes in the law already reduced the effective rate but he did not identify those loopholes or quantify them. MCCain should have called him on this because all Obama would have been able to do is stutter. Most of the so-called loopholes are probably nothing more than generally accepted accounting principles of which Obama knows nothing.
5. Also with regard to the $4 billion, it would be very useful to state it in relative terms such as percent of total capitalization, total taxes paid, total income. The relative measure of a tax reduction for someone who already pays nothing is infinite.
6. Refusing to answer the question is a standard technique for political debates. Sometimes that is the only way one can get said what is considered necessary. Perhaps Dee has forgotten that Ifle(sp)said neither of the candidates in the first debate answered Jim Lehrer's question regarding what changes in expenditure or other plans each would make, given the present financial crisis. Obama "nothing" except perhaps a delay in the doubling of foreign aid. Ifle didn't think that was an adequate answer but she got the same from the dummy Biden. That illustrates my point and also Obama's fundamental irresponsibility when it come to the fiscal health of our nation. He loves deficit spending and lives up to the highest standards of the Democrat party.
7. Biden said that McCain's health care plan would give the $5,000 to the insurance companies. I guess that's a little like when I give my money to my car dealer and he gives me a car, i.e. the insurance company gets the money and the family gets the insurance coverage. So let's take a simple example: the employee gets $5,000 to help cover his share of his health insurance costs, at say $6,000 per year with the employer picking up a matching amount of $6,000. Then the employee has to pay income tax on the employers' share at say a marginal tax rate of 25%. 25% of $6,000 is $1,500. The employee thus has a net gain of $4500, not something I would turn down.
8. The past is prologue --sometimes. It probably is in terms of the Mexicanization of the U.S.. The population stats all point in that direction. Certainly Obama would not agree that his prospective administration would based on any current prologue. I rest my case.
9. Obama with his tawdry past associations with known felons Rezko and Ayres and his consorting with a known blasphemous racist, Jeremiah wright has no concept of fiscal discipline. I wouldn't trust him with my money any farther than I could throw a piano.

Isn't it true that we already spend more on education than any other country with less to show for our money? Biden talks about raising the pay of teachers but if we did we would still have the same ineffective faculty but it would just be costing us more.

ultima said...

Health care: Take another example of someone whose employer does not provide insurance. $5,000 might not buy the kind of insurance Senator Biden enjoys but it would enable all families to buy a high deductible policy

ultima said...

Biden with his cosmetic tape to keep his eyelids from making him look like Fu Manchu and his freshly whitened teeth were attempts to cover up his 65 years of age. Maybe he won't last a 4 year term and then we would get Pelosi? Ugh! More to worry about there.

ultima said...

Biden said the redistribution of wealth is a matter of fairness but what is fair about giving money to those who have not earned it by taking it away from those who have. It is welfare pure and simple.

Why didn't he tell it like it is?

The Arizonian said...

ultima said... Isn't it true that we already spend more on education than any other country with less to show for our money?

Seems to be more true than you know. Two weeks ago from USAToday:
http://www.usatoday.com/news/education/2003-09-16-education-comparison_x.htm

U.S. tops the world in school spending but not test scores
WASHINGTON (AP) — The United States spends more public and private money on education than other major countries, but its performance doesn't measure up in areas ranging from high-school graduation rates to test scores in math, reading and science, a new report shows.

"There are countries which don't get the bang for the bucks, and the U.S. is one of them," said Barry McGaw, education director for the Paris-based Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, which produced the annual review of industrialized nations.

The United States spent $10,240 per student from elementary school through college in 2000, according to the report. The average was $6,361 among more than 25 nations.

The range stretched from less than $3,000 per student in Turkey, Mexico, the Slovak Republic and Poland to more than $8,000 per student in Denmark, Norway, Austria and Switzerland.

The report cited Australia, Finland, Ireland, Korea and the United Kingdom as examples of OECD nations that have moderate spending on primary and lower secondary education but high levels of performance by 15-year-olds in key subject areas.

As for the United States, it finished in the middle of the pack in its 15-year-olds' performance on math, reading and science in 2000, and its high-school graduation rate was below the international average in 2001 — figures highlighted by Education Secretary Rod Paige.

The country fared better in reading literacy among fourth-graders, where it finished among the top scorers in 2001. But the declining performance as students grow older served as a warning to the nation, Paige said.

"These results highlight an extremely important truth about our educational system: I think we have become complacent, self-satisfied and often lacking the will to do better," Paige said.

Appropriate spending has emerged as a key political issue this year as the nation's schools deal with federal reforms. The No Child Left Behind law demands better performance from students and teachers, particularly in low-income districts, but critics say Republican leaders in Congress have spent too little on the effort.

The report, released Tuesday, sets international benchmarks and identifies areas for improvement.

Based on educational level, the report says the United States spends the most on higher education for every student and is a leading spender on primary and secondary education.

Paige said the nation must fill the gap between it and other countries, and bridge another between students succeeding in American public schools and those falling behind. Within that promising fourth-grade reading showing in the United States, Paige said, is a revealing number: the higher the percentage of poor students, the lower the average score.

"There's no such thing as a 'typical' fourth-grader," Paige said. "We want to go to each fourth-grader. We need to see who needs the help."

The new federal law requires states to chart adequate yearly progress — not just for a school's overall population, but for groups such as minorities and students who speak little English. Sanctions grow by the year for schools receiving low-income aid that don't improve enough. Consequences range from letting students transfer to a better school within their districts to handing control of a poor-performing school to the state.

"No other country is imposing such a rigorous requirement on its schools," McGaw said.

But from school boards to Congress, growing numbers of leaders say the federal government isn't committing enough money to the task. States must, for example, expand their standardized testing and put a highly qualified teacher in every core class by 2005-06.

Federal education spending has grown by $11 billion since President Bush took office, Paige said, but that includes spending beyond the first 12 grades. Even increased money for elementary and secondary education doesn't cover the law's sweeping expenses, said David Shreve of the National Conference of State Legislatures.

The Arizonian said...

But that is when you consider Dollars spent on education. When it comes to the percentage of GDP, the US falls short:

Ultima,
I guess the only acceptable Republican timeline for withdrawal from Iraq is McCain´s 100 more years strategy! The rest of us find that UNACCEPTABLE!
We do NOT Want 4 more years of the last 8 years!

ultima said...
1. Obama is for a responsible withdrawal from Iraq which may not be possible in the time frame he proposes.

Dee said...

Ulty,
I find this "Economy" comment by Republicans the most ludicrous and hilarious. With Clinton we as a nation were not in debt. Now, after 8 years under your Republican Bush Administration we are trillions in debt and the most dire straits economically in our country´s history. John McCain is AFRAID of the word economy and until just 2 weeks ago said the ecomy was fine!

Ulty,
Regarding your hyperbole about Obama, you should consider the facts about Palin, admitted lack of education, Troopergate, cronyism, using the bridge to nowhere money, scandalous affairs, etc. Just the thought of her in national office is very very scary! She is JoEtta Six Pack!

Dee said...

The focus of these political discussions should be the War and the Economy.. What McCain is running away from! We should not let distractions like JoEtta and her lies get in the way of what we should be talking about!

Liquidmicro said...

You had better check Obama's Economic plan.

FactChecking Obama
August 29, 2008
He stuck to the facts, except when he stretched them.


"Obama said he could “pay for every dime” of his spending and tax cut proposals “by closing corporate loopholes and tax havens.” That’s wrong – his proposed tax increases on upper-income individuals are key components of paying for his program, as well. And his plan, like McCain’s, would leave the U.S. facing big budget deficits, according to independent experts."

Nothing like taking us deeper into debt!! Why don't you try listening to what the candidates say vs hitting every Democratic Talking Point there is when 99% of them have been proven incorrect.

100 years under McCain.
"The DNC ad doesn't mention that McCain was speaking specifically about a peacetime presence. And the text of the ad paired with images of Iraq under siege leave a clear impression that McCain proposes to allow a century more of war, with U.S. involvement. That's not what he said, in New Hampshire or in other settings when he's been asked about it."

DNC vs. McCain
April 29, 2008
Two Democratic Party TV ads hit McCain on Iraq and the economy. We supply context and corrections.

Liquidmicro said...

Sen. Barack Obama took a very similar position, saying some U.S. troops would remain for an indefinite period for "counterterrorism activities," which we presume means combat troops.

Russert: Will you pledge that by January 2013, the end of your first term more than five years from now, there will be no U.S. troops in Iraq?
Obama: I think it's hard to project four years from now, and I think it would be irresponsible. We don't know what contingency will be out there. What I can promise is that if there are still troops in Iraq when I take office [and] if there's no timetable [for withdrawal], then I will drastically reduce our presence there to the mission of protecting our embassy, protecting our civilians and making sure that we're carrying out counterterrorism activities there.

Stuck in Iraq?

Obama's Iraq plan!! The exact same as McCain's, except worded differently.

"Just the thought of her in national office is very very scary! She is JoEtta Six Pack!"

Not nearly as scary of Greenhorn Obama in the White House. Your reasoning power has failed you when it comes to Obama's consorting with known criminals and blasphemous racists. Your philosophy is that if a candidate is a liberal democrat all sins are forgiven including the lack of judgment that could be disasterous in a president.

No, I didn't even know such a thing existed until it was disclosed on the internet and my wife said something about his eyes and face looking a little funny like some plastic surgery had gone awry.

Oprah said you could use duct tape to get cleavage. Have you tried that? Must be a democrat thing.

"With Clinton we as a nation were not in debt. Now, after 8 years under your Republican Bush Administration we are trillions in debt and the most dire straits economically in our country´s history."

Everyone knows Clinton was riding the dot com bubble and was not doing what should have been done on the war on terror. The problem with your statement is that Obama wants to make a bad situation worse. How would you like it if your credit cards were maxed out and your home being foreclosed, and then your husband came home with a new boat and a new car. That's what Obama plans to do. Our credit cards as a nation are maxed out, our homes are being foreclosed, and we have a budget deficit. His economic plan: spend more. Some say McCain's plan would increase the debt by 5 trillion $ and Obama's by 3.5 trillion $, as though the latter was anything one should be proud of or vote for. I am opposed to both. We need more fiscal conservatives in the congress, some who are really serious about stopping this spending like a drunke sailor.

I posted some time ago that the Comptroller General of the U.S. was traveling about the country sounding the warning: one if by Wall Street or two if by FM/FM lending. No one listened.

Hear! Hear! Ariz has got this right. I guess he could always call expert Hillary at 3Am to get her advice before he makes a mistake.

ultima said...

"But that is when you consider Dollars spent on education. When it comes to the percentage of GDP, the US falls short:"

What if we made any increase inversely proportional to the national debt? I wonder what the stats would look like then. Don't get me wrong; I am in favor of spending if will have the desired effect -- enabling us to produce as many engineers and scientists as China and our other competitors. We would get that investment back many times. As far as K-12 is concerned, incentive pay is the only answer. Successful teachers should be paid more and unsuccessful ones less or simply fired. And parents above all need to be held accountable to see that their kids do their homework. They need to sign off on it every day and spend enough time with them to make sure they do it and are positioned to succeed. They could begin by turning off the TV until the home work is done. Maybe instead of a cheap converter box they all need to have a recorder so they won't miss Desparate Housewives or Friday Night Smackdown.

ultima said...

"after 8 years under your Republican Bush Administration we are trillions in debt and the most dire straits economically in our country´s history. "

Perhaps this is a case where Obama should be looking back and saying to himself, "I sure as hell don't want to do that or for that to be my legacy."

ultima said...

"With Clinton we as a nation were not in debt."

I am afraid you are grossly mistaken on this. I'm sure you can find a reference on the internet that will show you what the national debt was during Clinton's tenure. I assure you it wasn't zero. I will be waiting for your "touche".

ultima said...

Find an interesting national debt chart here. Note that Clinton's performance was better than some but worse than others and he didn't have a war on his hands in two theaters, a Wall Street meltdown, or the results of the FM/FM debacle created by his cronies.

Dee said...

Ultima,
I do not have a need for cosmetic tape.
Just for your info. Brown skinned Latinos and Blacks do not age as those with fairer skins. The sun does not affect us the same way.
I am all natural and will never use plastic surgery or cosmetic tapes or anything like that.
Let me give you an example.
My mother, at 92, before she died, had beautiful skin with few wrinkles. She never had cosmetic anything and always wore little to no make up.
Long Eyelashes, Big Eyes, bright, clear skin with rosy cheeks and few wrinkles are all part of our culture and DNA.

I and many Dems have decided, WE are NOT going to allow McLame to distract us anymore with PalinAntics. She can distract herself for all we care! But whatever she does will not distract us from putting the topics the American Public will Vote On in the forefront!

We are going to put the Issues on the Table and only speak to the Issues until Election Day!

The focus of these political discussions are the War and the Economy... Exactly what McCain and his water carriers are running away from!

We will not allow distractions like JoEtta 6 Pack and her lies get in the way of what we should be talking about prior to Election Day!
