Bidenís been a failure

You have printed three columns denigrating Sarah Palin, including one by your resident venom vender, Patrick Murphy. They have attacked her family and condemn her for not aborting her special-needs child. Perhaps it is time for the other vice presidential candidate, Joe Biden, to have equal time but without attempting to slime his family.

Mr. Biden was laughed out of his first campaign for president when it was revealed that he was plagiarizing speeches used by a British politician and enhancing his law school resume. In his second try for president he received 2,300 votes in the Iowa primary, finished dead last and withdrew.

Biden's Senate career could best be described as one year repeated 36 times, 36 years in the Senate and not one memorable accomplishment. He is indeed a poster boy for term limits. Biden voted for the Iraq War Resolution but when public opinion turned against that war he stated that he was against it. As he stated, "I was for it before I was against it!" Or did he say I was against it before I was for it?

Mr. Biden's most memorable moments during the present campaign have been when he informed that Hillary Clinton would be a much better candidate than he, when he told a paraplegic gentleman sitting in a wheelchair to stand up and when he advocated giving tax rebates to 90 percent of American taxpayers, and that 40 percent of that 90 percent pay no taxes.

Biden is an advocate of handouts to the less fortunate. Mr. Biden is a very generous man—his annual salary is $160,000 plus perks and goodies. His 2007 tax return reveals a contribution of $336 to charity.

Biden represents the state of Delaware. Delaware is a corporate haven. The laws of Delaware provide corporate management with notable latitude in their power to operate and control corporations. Biden is vocally critical of corporations but does not hesitate to accept large contributions and do their bidding. Anyp1ace other than Washington, D.C., this would be considered hypocrisy.
