Biden Used to Stand on Principle – What Happened?

What happened to the honorable Senator who said that he would rather lose an election than vote to cut off funding for the troops? What happened to the man who said he would be honored to be John McCain’s running mate? What happened to the man in this video?

Senator Biden on Meet the Press with Tim Russert in September 2007:

Joe Biden: “And, look, Tim, if you tell me I’ve got to take away this protection for these kids in order to win the election, some things aren’t worth it. Some things are worth losing over. That would be worth losing over.

Hundreds of lives are being saved and will be saved by us sending these vehicles over which we are funding with this supplemental legislation. And I want to ask any of my other colleagues, would they, in fact, vote to cut off the money for those troops to protect them? That’s the right question. This isn’t cutting off the war. This is cutting off support that will save the lives of thousands of American troops.”

Palin at the debate:

You also said that Barack Obama was not ready to be commander in chief. And I know again that you opposed the move he made to try to cut off funding for the troops and I respect you for that. I don’t know how you can defend that position now, but I know that you know especially with your son in the National Guard and I have great respect for your family also and the honor that you show our military. Barack Obama though, another story there. Anyone I think who can cut off funding for the troops after promising not to is another story.

Hat Tip Gateway Pundit for the video!

By the way, where is the elite media doing any basic fact checking on this issue?
