Democrats have had an extremely bad week.
From Virginia Governor Ralph Northam’s past racist photos surfacing to HBO’s Bill Maher mocking a black Republican Congressman, the liberal party can’t seem to slow the madness.
Enter former Vice President Joe Biden, who is now dealing with a serious racial issue of his own involving segregation and “black pride”…
From Washington Examiner:
Joe Biden, weighing a 2020 White House bid, once advocated continued school segregation in the United States, arguing that it benefited minorities and that integration would prevent black people from embracing “their own identity.”
Biden was speaking in 1975, when he opposed the federally mandated busing policy designed to end segregation in schools. In the past few decades, he has claimed he wanted desegregation but believed the policy of busing would not achieve it. Last year, he stated he had voted heroically to protect busing.
In 2008, after being chosen as Barack Obama’s vice-presidential running mate he said: “The struggle for civil rights was the animating political element of my life.” He appears poised to make his civil rights record a centerpiece of any campaign, telling an audience in Fort Lauderdale this week that “I came out of the civil rights movement. He added that he first became aware of what an “awful thing” segregation was as a third grader, when he asked his mother why a bus was taking black children to a school away from where they lived.
Barack Obama’s VP sure seems to want to run for president against Donald Trump in 2020. He just hasn’t made it completely official yet.
According to Biden, though, he’s the “most qualified person in the country to be president.”
From Fox News:
Former Vice President Joe Biden said he would decide if he’s running for president in 2020 soon. But in the meantime, he’s confident he is up for the job.
Biden: “I think I’m the most qualified person in the country to be president. The issues that we face as a country today are the issues that I’ve worked on my whole life.”
Biden, 76, was at the University of Montana in Missoula Monday to promote his book, “Promise Me, Dad.” He said he would rely on his family to help him decide whether he’ll run for president in 2020.
“No one doubts what I say; the problem is I sometimes say all that I mean. The question is what kind of nation are we becoming?”
While campaigning for Democrat Senator Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota, Biden suggested her opponent, Rep. Kevin Cramer, be beat up.
Biden noted: “As my brother, who loves to use lines from movies, a John Wayne movie, there’s a good line in a movie, a John Wayne movie where the Indian chief turns to John Wayne and says ‘this is a lying dog-faced pony soldier.'”
He continued: “Well, let me tell ya, these guys are [inaudible], they just stand up, flat out, stand up and say things that are absolutely mind-boggling,” Biden continued. “I love this one on trade, this I love, and by the way, I told you I come from an agricultural state, I don’t know how you can possibly get elected in an agricultural state with the things he is saying.”

While campaigning for Democrat Sen. Bill Nelson and gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum in Florida, Biden thought he was in Miami, thanking the crowd.
Joe wasn’t in Miami.
In fact, he was 280 miles from Miami.
