looks like you're the only one who thought he Literally meant "dead"

Yea, he meant many of them had been killed - but there were plenty more where they came from.  He just skimmed over the part where their operational effectiveness had only been delayed.  Of course that requires a new meaning of the word skimmed.  Skimmed as in he failed to mention it.

Are they figuratively dead? It doesn't seem so.

Illuminator is a good poster. He sticks to his guns and makes good points. Some don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t like that.

The figuratively dead part - does that mean pissed off?  Just checking because I have a hard time interpreting Bidenspeak.

I'm wondering if maybe these are the people we should focus on taking guns away from?

I suspect there is a bit of denial occurring in DC - what with the Arab Spring, and not dead Al Quaeda... maybe taking their supply of weapons just hasn't made it to the surface of all that data that is so overwhelming.

It's a bumper sticker quote where Biden references the death of bin laden. Taking it literally just exposes your right wing agenda and makes you look pathetic.

We're not taking it literally, we're taking it figuratively - and it's still not true. Not sure how much more simply I can explain it.

who's this "we" you speak of? Everyone else seems to be following the right wing script.

The other folks whose posts seem to be a bother to you which would include mine.  Of course it was a slogan, and the slogan wasn't accurate while being a slogan, nor are they now.  My use of the slogan not being accurate is simply a different choice of words than Illuminator's - when he said "it's still not true".

If you find Biden's epically inaccurate slogan/statement a fail for anyone but he and his running mate I can't help it.  False is false - regardless of who offers the slogan/statement.

 " Not sure I follow but my only aim here is to call out right wing fail when I see it "

It's crystal clear to everyone else that you don't follow.

Aim lower.
