Biden's recent debate 'performance' is literally rotting away:

Also last week, Biden told Americans during his Oct. 11 debate with Republican vice-presidential nominee Paul Ryan that U.S. troops were leaving Afghanistan by 2014.

"We are leaving in 2014, period, and in the process, we're going to be saving over the next 10 years another $800 billion," Biden said. "We've been in this war for over a decade. The primary objective is almost completed. Now all we're doing is putting the Kabul government in a position to be able to maintain their own security. It's their responsibility, not America's."

Unfortunately, it's only drying up and blowing away for those who actually fact check and keep paying attention when the debate is over. Everyone else is like, 'It must be true I saw it on TV.' Or the modern equivalent: 'It had to have happened, here's the t00b.'

There are two major problems with truth-in-advertising laws. One is, it's closing the barn door after the cow already got out. The other is, they don't apply to politicians like Biden.

If they did, we wouldn't have politicians like Biden.
