Oops: Biden Accuses GOP Of Spending $200 Billion

From RealClearPolitics Video, (go take a look at the video, I'll wait) VP Joe Biden Accuses GOP Of Spending $200 Billion: “I was amazed at the amount of money, this $200 billion of money that is — where there’s no accountability”.

Now, when you are speaking about accountability, and using specific dollar amounts, don't they have to be from somewhere other than out of your...thin air?

To give you a sense of size, according to the IMF, the entire Gross Domestic Product of Egypt, for 2009, was roughly $188 billion. That's a country of over 81 million people. In other words, the money being spent by the right on this election is bigger than every cent spent in Egypt an anything in the entire year of 2009. Really?  REALLY?

Others like Open Secrets reported, had estimated the total combined spending at $3.7 billion.  Sure, that amount may have changed, but $200 billion?

Can this man really be that dim, or was this a deliberate scare tactic?  Either he's to vapid to be Vice President, or else too dishonest.  Someone should follow that man around with a lie detector every day, because the American people need to know which is the real truth, dangerously uninformed, or blatantly dishonest.
