The Joe Biden vs. Paul Ryan Debate

The Vice President is taking six days off the campaign trail to prepare for his debate with Paul Ryan. He is being assisted by David Axelrod and Rep. Chris Van Hollen (MD), the ranking Democrat on Ryan’s House Budget Committee. Biden’s speech at the Democratic Convention was better than Obama’s, but he failed to match the great expectations of 2008 in his debate with Sarah Palin.
According to Dr. Henry Miller in Forbes: “Joe Biden has problems with impulse control and reality testing. The Vice President concluded a campaign speech with a rousing, ‘With you we can win North Carolina again.’
“The only problem was, he was in Virginia. Biden has previously done and said impulsive, bizarre things. In 1987, he plagiarized part of a campaign speech by Neil Kinnock, leader of Britain’s Labour Party, and even revised his own family history to conform to the speech.
“Biden has demonstrated poor reality testing – or a pathological disregard for the truth – for decades. He claimed in 1987 that he ‘went to law school on a full academic scholarship — the only one in my class to have a full academic scholarship,’ and that he ‘ended up in the top half’ of his class. He also said that in college he was ‘the outstanding student in the political science department’ and ‘graduated with three degrees.’
“However, after inaccuracies in his statements were exposed, Biden made this admission on September 22, 1987: ‘I did not graduate in the top half of my class at law school and my recollection of this was inaccurate.’
“He had actually graduated 76th in a class of 85 from the Syracuse College of Law. And Biden’s baccalaureate accomplishment was a single B.A. degree. Age appears not to have improved Biden’s connection with reality. Are these aberrations stupidity, dementia or personality disorders?”
