As part of a series of five forums hosted by AARP and the Des Moines Register, nineteen Democratic presidential candidates were invited to discuss their views on a variety of topics including healthcare, Social Security, and prescription drug costs. Monday’s forum featured Joe Biden, Cory Booker, John Hickenlooper, and Amy Klobuchar.
During Monday’s event, Joe Biden made a very interesting claim about his health care proposal. “If you like your health care plan, your employer-based plan, you can keep it,” Biden claimed. “If you like your private insurance, you can keep it.” New York Times reporter Reid Epstein reported the claim on Twitter:

Correct me if I’m wrong, but we’ve heard this kind of claim before, haven’t we? That’s right! We have!
Does Joe Biden think we have such short memories that we can’t recall that Barack Obama repeatedly claimed that under Obamacare if we liked our existing health care plan we could keep it, and if we liked our doctor we could keep our doctor? Obama repeatedly and unequivocally made this claim so often that the left-wing fact-checking site PolitiFact named it the Lie of the Year for 2013.
Sorry, Joe. We didn’t fall for it then, and we certainly won’t fall for it now.

This is almost word for word what Obama said just before making it illegal for millions of Americans to keep their health care plans and, in some cases, quadrupling their insurance costs. Obama’s oft-repeated promise is widely regarded as the lyingest lie told in eight solid years of lying. It probably has its own entry in the Guinness World Record Book of Lies and will likely never be bested.
Although it’s entirely possible that Slidin’ Biden (whose poll numbers keep dropping) is tone deaf enough not to realize his choice of words was salting a national wound, we prefer to think that Obama himself is secretly giving Biden hilariously bad advice on running for President and wondering when Joe will finally catch on to the joke.
We’re guessing it may be when Barry arranges for Bill Ayers to drive Uncle Joe to the Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s church for the annual 9/11 “Chickens Come Home to Roost” sermon.
