Joe Biden made an interesting comment during last night’s Vice Presidential debate: “Gwen, no one in the United States Senate has been a better friend to Israel than Joe Biden. I would have never, ever joined this ticket were I not absolutely sure Barack Obama shared my passion.”
Now, that caught me off guard. I’m not saying that Senator Biden lied, but after he said that, I thought, “What about Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Joe Lieberman (I-CT)?” (They’re the two Jews in the Senate. You know, I just noticed that both Jewish Senators are Independents – weird.)
Again, I’m not calling Biden a liar – I just thought this somewhat odd, so I looked up Sanders and Lieberman’s records. I knew Lieberman was pretty pro-Israel and found some of the laws that he sponsored (which Biden also cosponsored), but I didn’t find much about Sanders.
So, I was just wondering – if there’s any Israeli’s or people of Jewish decent who would happen to have an opinion on this. It’s just something I was kinda wondering.
