“He’s a serial exaggerator. If I was being unkind I’d say he was a liar. It’s a habit he ought to drop… It’s a made up fictional world. He ought to get out of it and get back to reality. He’s making these things up out of whole cloth. You should not exaggerate and lie like this when you are the Vice President of the United States.”

This interview was devastating. Rove shreds Joe Biden

:

FOX News reported on Rove’s response to Joe Biden:

Republican strategist Karl Rove called Vice President Biden a “liar” on Thursday, dramatically escalating a feud between Biden and aides to former President George W. Bush over Biden’s claims to have rebuked Bush in private meetings.

“I hate to say this, but he’s a serial exaggerator,” Rove told FOX News. “If I was being unkind I would say liar. But it is a habit he ought to drop.”

Rove added: “You should not exaggerate and lie like this when you are the Vice President of the United States.”

Biden’s office did not immediately respond to a request for comment, although Biden spokesman Jay Carney told Fox on Wednesday: “The vice president stands by his remarks.”

Carney was referring to two controversial assertions by Biden, the latest coming Tuesday during an interview on CNN.

“I remember President Bush saying to me one time in the Oval Office,” Biden began, “‘Well, Joe,’ he said, ‘I’m a leader.’ And I said: ‘Mr. President, turn and around look behind you. No one is following.'”

The exchange is purely “fictional,” said Rove, who was Bush’s top political adviser in the White House.

“It didn’t happen,” Rove, a FOX News contributor and former Bush adviser, told Megyn Kelly in an interview taped for “On The Record.” “It’s his imagination; it’s a made-up, fictional world.

“He ought to get out of it and get back to reality,” Rove added. “He’s making this up out of whole cloth.”

  1. Biden’s lies (exaggerations)over the years seem to be pathological; they serve no greater purpose than to make whatever he is saying at the time a little more dramatic, or interesting. They open him up to scrutiny and derision, and ultimately diminish him as a person. It is unfortunate that a man who has ascended to the Vice Presidency nonetheless feels that his experiences are not interesting enough to share unless they are heavily fictionalized.
