Biden lied about marching in the civil rights movement

NEW HAMPSHIRE — Presidential candidate and former vice president Joe Biden lied about his involvement in the Civil Rights Movement when he first tested his presidential message to a New Hampshire audience in 1987, according to a report in the New York Times.

The report states that despite his advisors reminding him on more than one occasion of one tremendous flaw in his speech, the fact that he never actually marched during the Civil Rights Movement, he assured them that he understood — but kept telling the story anyway.

The New York Times also reported that his rashness as a candidate caught up with him by that September as he was also accused of plagiarizing his speeches.

And according to the Los Angeles Times, Biden exaggerated his academic achievements during his campaign in New Hampshire, saying he "ended up in the top half" of his class in law school at Syracuse, although records indicate he finished near the bottom.

The New York Times report continued, quoting Biden as saying: "I've done some dumb things — and I'll do dumb things again." during a stop-the-bleeding news conference at the Capitol.

Thirty-two years later and Biden's back in the race for the third time and it seems he will say and do just about anything to win.
