After Kamala Harris pushed him into a political corner on who he worked on in the past in the Senate and his distaste for forced school busing?
The former Vice President for Barack Obama is giving his response again after the last nights debate which has put him on the defensive as Harris fights to peal off black voter support Biden, who has led the nomination race by miles….
This is another throw down at him as the leader in the polls….
It won’t be the last….
If he IS the nominee?
Donald Trump will make this stuff seem like childs play….
A day after a bruising debate in which Senator Kamala Harris laced into his history on civil rights, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. provided a lengthy and vigorous defense of his record, saying that “30 seconds to 60 seconds on a campaign debate exchange can’t do justice to a lifetime committed to civil rights.”
At a labor luncheon in Chicago on Friday, Mr. Biden recited a litany of his actions he had taken in his long career to promote civil rights and insisted “I never, never, never ever opposed voluntary busing.’’
“Folks, the discussion in this race shouldn’t be about the past,’’ he said.
Mr. Biden was addressing the latest of several major controversies in his two-month-old campaign, setbacks that he has managed to survive while continuing to top the polls at this early stage of the 2020 race. But his first presidential debate performance this cycle was rocky, many Democrats say, and prominent current and former party officials warned Friday that his appearance in Miami revealed “cracks” in his message that he would be the strongest challenger to the president.
“If the contention is, he’s the one to go head-to-head, he’s going to have to kind of re-prove that,” said Sue Dvorsky, the former chairwoman of the Iowa Democratic Party. “Because last night put some cracks, I think, in that narrative.”
