poor poor Joe, he was shot at...

Quote:

When Hillary Clinton told a tall tale about "landing under sniper fire" in Bosnia, she was accused of "inflating her war experience" by rival Democrat Barack Obama's campaign.


But the campaign has been silent about Obama's running mate, Joe Biden, telling his own questionable story about being "shot at" in Iraq.


"Let's start telling the truth," Biden said during a presidential primary debate sponsored by YouTube last year. "Number one, you take all the troops out - you better have helicopters ready to take those 3,000 civilians inside the Green Zone, where I have been seven times and shot at. You better make sure you have protection for them, or let them die."


But when questioned about the episode afterward by the Hill newspaper, Biden backpedaled from his claim of being "shot at" and instead allowed: "I was near where a shot landed."

Quote:

Meanwhile, the gaffe-prone Biden has again raised eyebrows with another story about his exploits in war zones - this time in Afghanistan. Biden said he will grill Republican rival Sarah Palin in Thursday's vice presidential debate about "the superhighway of terror between Pakistan and Afghanistan where my helicopter was forced down."


"If you want to know where Al Qaeda lives, you want to know where Bin Laden is, come back to Afghanistan with me," Biden bragged to the National Guard Association. "Come back to the area where my helicopter was forced down, with a three-star general and three senators at 10,500 feet in the middle of those mountains. I can tell you where they are."
Hearing shots, and being shot at are two different things, and a helicopter landing because of the weather is a touch different than being "forced down".

What's the point of exaggerating experience in war zones? Biden isn't the first and won't be the last, but is it that they want people to feel that they "understand"?


Unlike Clinton, Biden Gets Pass for Saying He Was 'Shot At' in Iraq - FOXNews.com Elections

I was going to respond, but will bite my togue.

Anyone that boast about "war" exsperiances is full of shit.

I'm sure Cain, Cavediver, and anyone in or once was in the military will agree on this.

Just goes to show that any idiot can run for office and if the media supports him, they'll twist the perception in an effort to fool the average schmuck!

What's worse is he has NONE. His helicopter was not forced down. They had to land due to the weather. He was not shot AT, he heard shots.

yeah, I think John kerry was on that helecopter too at the time and made a joke about them landing the helecopter to send Biden out to battle the terrorists with snowballs. Not very funny considering our REAL troops are REALLY being shot at.
