Biden Repeats Obama's "Lie of the Year"

Joe Biden went down to the AARP and the obvious impression here is how feeble he is. The old gags about Joe Biden driving a corvette and groping voters seem passe. Instead, Biden stumbles feebly out on stage, wanders around confused, and then offers up Obama's most infamous lie while trying to explain why ObamaCare is better than Medicaid-for-All.

We're not just talking about something that has been moving around the conservative blogsphere, but Politifact's Lie of the Year.

President Obama's oft-repeated promise that "if you like your health care plan, you can keep it" is 2013's "lie of the year," according to the fact checkers at the Tampa Bay Times' nonpartisan PolitiFact project.

"For all of these reasons, PolitiFact has named 'If you like your health care plan, you can keep it,' the Lie of the Year for 2013. Readers in a separate online poll overwhelmingly agreed with the choice."

So why would Biden offer up, "If you like your health care plan, your employer-based plan, you can keep it."

Maybe he really is just too tired to be doing this.
