Vice President Biden called the Boston Marathon bomber brothers “two twisted, perverted, cowardly, knock-off jihadis.
And Biden said the way to defeat terrorists and terrorism is to never change the nation’s way of life.
“The only way they can gain ground is to instill fear that causes us to jettison our values, way of life, for us to change. The moment we change, the moment we look inward, the moment we get into a crouch in a defensive, that’s the moment when they win.”
At first Biden would credit Kinnock when he quoted him. But at some point he failed to offer the attribution. Biden maintained that he lapsed only once—at a debate at the Iowa State Fair, on Aug. 23, when cameras recorded it—but Maureen Dowd of the New York Times reported two incidents of nonattribution, and no one kept track exactly of every time Biden used the Kinnock bit. (Click here for examples of Biden's lifting.) What is certain is that Biden didn't simply borrow the sort of boilerplate that counts as common currency in political discourse—phrases like "fighting for working families." What he borrowed was Kinnock's life.

I didn't have much respect of Biden, but I knew to stop looking when he offered up the idea of militia and patriots right off the bat. I read it and haven't been able to find the article since. You shouldn't suggest such a thing as Anerican's killing other innocent American's unless you know it's looking that way.
