When bad things happen
I can't imagine what it is like to lose most of your immediate family in an accident and I hope I never experience it.
I guess in a person's despair and bitterness, they hold onto anything that can be blamed for a tragedy, even if evidence comes out that you were wrong. You see this same thing happen time and again, on true crime TV shows that explore murders where an in-law will blame a surviving spouse for a murder when the that same spouse is cleared, but no one else was brought to justice. Maybe Biden had to have someone to blame for all these years... does not justify his previous actions, but maybe it explains his feelings and motivations.
I hope his public statements brings some peace to both families.
So you're giving him a pass....
I realize he went through a lot of pain, but it's fairly amazing that he never followed up or bothered to find out what really happened and opted to spread a false rumor instead.
He used the situation to garner sympathy and further his own career. He doesn't seem to care much about the other people. Massive character flaw, IMHO.
Sheesh Ed, I did no such thing
How does "does not justify his previous actions, but maybe it explains his feelings and motivations." even begin to resemble anything close to a pass ?
You know, I see you post these phishing threads all the time, where you jump on anyone who does not give you the precise comment you were looking for. Here... you were looking for people to come out and categorically condemn Biden for his response to the tragedy that ruined not just 1 but apparently apparently 2 families.
You are looking to capitalize upon and condemn someone politically, because of the way they responded to their wife and child's death, then you are gonna hassle me for not beating the guy up about it in the manner you want to see ? You're gonna accuse Biden of making political capital off his families' death... to garner political advantage for your own favorite candidates ? That is a glaring double standard in every sense of the word. There is the "massive character flaw" you might want to spend some time spotlighting there buddy.
Seems like a pass to me.
I didn't "hassle" you. I didn't "jump" on you. I gave my opinion. Tough if you don't like it.
The rest of your nonsense cheerfully ignored, "buddy."
wow, looks like I hit a sensitive spot
Most well reasoned thing you've said all week.
Same old, same old.
Now the dialogue is in the "I'm injured" stage. "How could you be such a meanie?" while an attack on the other person proceeds without any embarrassment at all.
In the meantime, the substance of the discussion is left behind. I've seen this over and over again from Grim, and applied to many different people. It's always someone else who is mean.
I can understand his pain,
but to try to make political points from it is kind of low.
I wouldn't make too much of a 7 year old lie. Much fresher ones to deal with.
he did repeat the lie in 2007. After "apologizing" to the family the first time.
maybe he's forgetful?
