Biden learning from Hillary

Back in March, Hillary Clinton told her whopper about her harrowing trip to Bosnia, "landing under sniper fire."  And we all know what that did for her political career.

Now, it seems, that the Democrats' V.P. candidate, Joe Biden, is learning the art of exaggeration from Hillary.  He's apparently out on the campaign trail talking about searching for Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan "where [his] helicopter was forced down." 

Joe Topper blogging at abcnews.com checked out Biden's tall tale - or, should I say, subtle stretching of the truth.  There was a helicopter carrying Biden, John Kerry, and Chuck Hagel.  It did make an emergency landing in Afghanistan.  But it wasn't forced down by terrorists, as Biden certainly is implying, but by a snowstorm.

Oh, Joe! Those nasty snow storms and whirling helicopter blades create a issue for hair plugs don't they? Yeah, watch out. Hillary is coming in for a landing under sniper fire and Joe is forced down by a militant snow storm. What is with Dems who feel the need to show off their "close encounters of a militaristic kind"?

Nobama....Keep the Change.
