Joe Biden Quotes

Joe Biden's below-average public-speaking skills and declining cognitive abilities continue to show in full view, with each passing month, as the 'Walking, Talking Gaffe Machine' continues to supply political history with new instances of disconnect from his surroundings and (in som ecases) complete fabrications of the truth. As the Left-wing-dominated, Democratic Party-supporting Main Stream Media (MSM) typically moves on quickly from such gaffes (and the American voting public, in turn, quickly forgets what was said), this page attempts to permanently record those choice quotes from the acting president as they happen.
