Scipio Africanus: Questions The Media Should Ask Joe Biden, But don’t. Just Imagine If Slow Joe Were A Republican VP. ----Given that Obama selected Joe Biden to oversee the Stimulus plans implementation (in addition with being VP and one heartbeat from the Presidency as well as tacitly in charge of Iraq and was taking point on budget talks as well ) and will be charged with calling others integrity as well as judgment into question, here are some that would be meaningful for the press to ask and the electorate to know. -----Why, during his 1987 presidential run, did he lie about his grades in law school, recalling inaccurately that he graduated in the in the "top half" of his class when he actually graduated 76th from a class of 85? -----Why, in the past has Joe Biden also falsely stated, that he had received a full scholarship, and had earned three degrees when he in fact received two majors and a single BA degree and got a half scholarship based on financial need not academic achievement? -----When he was a law student at Syracuse Law School, he had plagiarized a law review article passing it off as part of his course work? How exactly did he convince the then-dean of the law school, as well as Biden's former professor, to not kick him out of school? His excuse was that his act of plagiarism was unintentional due to his not knowing the proper rules of citation, but of course how could that be after 4 years of college prior to going to law school. -----Why has Israel's Army radio reported that Senator Joe Biden told Israeli officials that they need to accept the idea Iran will acquire nuclear weapons? -----Why does Joe Biden, a past supporter of Israel, now support direct negotiations with Iran despite UN violations as to their nuclear program? -----These are very valid questions and they go to the heart of Joe Biden's intelligence, integrity, character as well as his intentions. By the way, here's hoping he makes sure none of the Stimulus gets into the hands of his registered political lobbyist son, Hunter Biden. First posted 10-5-2008 33
