Quote of the Week - Joe Biden's Fantasies

"When we kicked - along with France, we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon, I said and Barack said, 'Move NATO forces in there. Fill the vacuum, because if you don't, Hezzbollah will control it.' Now what happened? Hezbollah is a legitimate part of the government in the country immediately north of Israel."

Facts: The U.S. never kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon and no one else has either. Perhaps Mr. Biden meant to say Syria, except that the U.S. didn't do that either. The Lebanese ousted Syria's military in 2005.

As for NATO, Biden and Obama may have proposed sending alliance troops in, but if they did that was also a fantasy. The U.S. has had all it can handle trying to convince NATO countries to deploy to Afghanistan.

Also, Bidens recently invited Americans to join him at "Katies middle class restaurant" in Wilmington to witness middle-class struggles. Just one problem: Katies closed in the 1980's.

As a side note restaurants have the greatest failure rate of any industry in the U.S., over 50% fail yearly and expect a lot more to fail in the next 6 months.

If Palin had made these gaffes, she would have been derided on every "talking head" show from "Hollywoodmakebelieveland".
