Biden Urged McCain To Join Kerry Ticket – More Proof Obama, Biden & Kerry Lying About McCain

with 2 comments

NOTE:

When I originally saw this story on Digg, August 23rd, clicking the link took me to a fairly blank MSNBC page.  Only the headline below was showing, and the entire story was “missing”.  Here is what I saw:

McCain urged to join Kerry ticket
Biden says a joint ticket would help heal ‘vicious rift’ dividing U.S.
“The page you are seeking has expired and is no longer available at msnbc.com.”

Using the links on the MSNBC site, I sent a trouble report about it, never expecting to hear back from anyone.  Amazingly enough, someone in Microsoft Technical Support emailed me back the following day!  “Rebecca” told me they would look into it.  After a couple of emails back and forth, for additional information and links, I clicked the link this morning and it was completely restored! So some of my faith in MSNBC has been restored. But of course it is not clear who, within hours of Obama naming Biden as his running-mate, removed the story and the included links to the Meet The Press transcript.  My guess would be some of those highly partisan NBC News people.

I know my friends at Liberal Values, The Moderate Voice and at The Atlantic will be so, so shocked to read that Biden and John Kerry have recently been making themselves into even bigger liars than usual lately. It has only been four years, mind you.  John McCain, in spite of what some will say, is exactly the same as in 2004.  So, question is, why have Joe Biden and John Kerry been lying to the American people?  And when, exactly, were they lying, now or then?

The story from 2004, clearly makes several points:

  • Biden thought McCain was one of the most bi-partisan leaders in America.
  • Kerry thought John McCain to be the perfect person to be Secretary of Defense to help him navigate an end to the war in Iraq.
  • Biden believed John McCain was the only man who could help heal the highly partisan rift in America.
  • The MSM, Reuters in this case, stated categorically McCain was a frequent critic of George W. Bush’s policies. From the Meet The Press transcript and news reports from 2004, Joe Biden, John Kerry and other Democrats thought so as well.

That being so, it is completely inaccurate, more likely it is a conspiracy of deceit, for Obama, Kerry and Biden to now be claiming McCain is like a third Bush term. It completely disqualifies all of them from elective office, IMO.

Anyway, read the full article below, and do click the link and read the transcript from Meet the Press. Let me know what you think….

Biden says a joint ticket would help heal ‘vicious rift’ dividing U.S.

Updated: 8:48 p.m. ET May 16, 2004 – Reuters

WASHINGTON – Sen. Joseph Biden, a senior Democrat, on Sunday urged Republican Sen. John McCain to run for vice president with the Democratic hopeful, Sen. John Kerry, in order to heal the “vicious rift” dividing America. McCain, of Arizona, “categorically” ruled out standing with Kerry, but Biden, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he had no second choice.

“I’m sticking with McCain,” Biden said.

“I think John McCain would be a great candidate for vice president,” Biden, from Delaware, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” where the two senators appeared together to take questions on Iraq and other subjects.

“Do I think it’s going to happen?  No,” he said. “But I think it is a reflection of the desire of this country and the desire of people in both parties to want to see this God-awful, vicious rift that exists in the nation healed, and John and John could go a long way to heal in that rift.”

McCain, chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee and in line to take over the Senate Armed Services panel in two years, endorsed Biden’s call for bridging the political gap between Democrats and Republicans.

“There’s too much partisanship in America, and there’s too much partisanship in the Senate,” he said. “And we’re not doing our job as our constituents expect us to do.”

“I will always take anyone’s phone calls,” McCain said of any call he might get from Kerry, a fellow decorated Vietnam War veteran. “But I will not, I categorically will not do it.”

[Sen. John] Kerry said Wednesday that McCain, a frequent critic of President Bush, would be his first choice to replace Donald Rumsfeld, the secretary of defense now wrestling with the Iraqi prisoner abuse scandal.

“I have any number of people that I would make secretary of Defense, beginning with our good friend John McCain,” Kerry said last week.

But on “Meet the Press” Sunday, McCain also indicated he was not interested in becoming secretary of defense in the event of a Kerry victory in November.
