    Maybe you can see that, and you might be right, but I'm sorry. I'm not seeing it. I have had an 11 year old daughter who would have responded exactly the same way, then would have laughed and given 'Uncle Joe' a hug. I can see myself as an 11-year-old or even at the age I now am resonding in exactly the same way.

    Sometimes we see what we want to see just because we want to be justified in how we otherwise feel about a person. I have seem it done all the time to every single President or famous person, political or not, since there has been television and a Paparazzi.

    I'm not saying any of them should not be hung. But I just think they deserve to be hung for crimes they commit and not for ones invented for expediency.

    The Bidens and Carters are not social friends. They have never been social friends. There is no evidence anywhere that Joe Biden knows Ash Carter's wife from any social settings at all, even though that has been said repeatedly in this thread.

    The story is about the VP of the USA acting without any decorum or common sense with the wife of the new Defense Secretary at her husband's swearing in.
    Okay. I respect that as your opinion and that you believe the VP was lying when he said it. And trust that you have evidence for your opinion that they have never been social friends.

    I just see things a bit differently.

    Where in the name of doG did I say Biden was lying about anything? I didn't. Nowhere. The possible untruths being told in this thread are that Biden is a personal friend of Ash Carter's wife because there is no evidence of that.. And I don't have to show evidence that they "aren't" social friends. You posted a picture of another man - NOT Ash Carter - and his wife, and said that's proof that the Bidens and Carters are social friends. WTF?

    Biden did not say anywhere "Ash & his wife are great friends of ours. We have them over for cocktails. We travel to Tahiti together."? He didn't. He said Ash Carter was a "friend". John McCain called Ted Kennedy & John Kerry & every Democrat in Congress "my friend". Did you take that to mean that John McCain was attending barbeques and drinking cocktails with Teresa Heinz Kerry?

    See, I can be a internet bad boy too.
    How did we get from manners and decorum to fistfights?

    In my years with my late wife I never once had to come to her aid in such a case, she was more than capable of handling herself when confronted with unwanted touching, if some slob wanted to risk the outcome, they were free to try....

    When I was 11, my father's boss didn't try to get chummy with me. If he had, I would have been creeped out. I'm not sure my father would have been thrilled either.

    Unless Coons' daughter has known Biden as a family friend for years, it's pretty creepy for Biden to do that. I agree, not as a pedophile or perverted, just creepy, and pretty damn inappropriate.
