Joe Biden Is Playing a Risky Game With Black Voters

Joe Biden Is Playing a Risky Game With Black Voters

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the runner-up in the 2016 presidential nomination race and frequently second to Joe Biden in the 2020 polls, rushed to agree with Booker.

The controversy began at a NY fundraiser Tuesday when Biden pointed to long-dead segregationist senators James Eastland of MS and Herman Talmadge of Georgia to argue that Washington functioned more smoothly a generation ago than under today's "broken" hyperpartisanship.

"Plain and simple. Joe Biden has dedicated his career to fighting for civil rights", the statement said.

One question raised in some quarters, and not answered by the Biden campaign, was what exactly were the things that he and Eastland "got done" in the Senate that supposedly justified his fond recollections of working together with the white supremacist senator. We got things done. Studying and developing proposals will be the end of the line, because if the Democrats ever actually vote for a plan to tax some Americans and give the money to other Americans, based on skin color or 1/1,024 ethnic purity (with many, of course, on both sides of the equation) it will be the end of the Democratic Party. Not the opposition, the enemy. Herman Talmadge, D-Ga., "were people who he fundamentally disagreed with on the issue of civil rights".

"Apologize for what? Cory should apologize", Biden told reporters outside a fundraiser near Washington, D.C., on Wednesday. Of Democrats between 18 and 29 years of age, 55 percent said they'd favor a candidate in his or her 30s or 40s.

When the coverage started, Hunt did not refer to the congressmen as Democrats or correct herself. Since his campaign began, Biden has strived to persuade progressive elements of the party that he is in step with them on issues such as abortion and climate change.

The region has been volatile since the USA tightened sanctions on Iranian oil sales in early May, sent military reinforcements to the region and provoked an increasingly squeezed Iranian government to warn European nations that it would breach the multilateral nuclear accord, which had traded some sanctions relief for limits on Tehran's nuclear program. "Just like those Republicans then, Biden is talking about working with Republicans today, was the essential argument", according to Mediaite, a website that covers news about media outlets.

First to attack the current Democratic front-runner was Sen.

As for his 2020 Democrat critics, "They know better". We regret the error.

"Apologize for what?" Biden told reporters Wednesday night when asked about the criticism over his remarks. Joe Biden: "Cory should apologize". "I agree with Cory Booker".

"There's not a racist bone in my body", the presidential hopeful added. "The way Biden usually tells the story, he says Eastland didn't call him "senator, ' he called him "son, '" the adviser said". This candidate's decision to fight back against such partisan vitriol is laudable - even though Biden himself has engaged in such demonization against President Donald Trump. "We don't talk to each other anymore", Biden said. Eastland thought my multiracial family should be illegal & that whites were entitled to "the pursuit of dead n*ggers". He says, "You don't have to like the people in terms of their views". Booker said that while Biden shouldn't use the southern segregationists as examples of people who brought unity to the country, the former vice-president is someone he "respects".
