A desperate Joe Biden is already contradicting himself as he tries to put the pieces back together after getting taking apart by Kamala Harris.
According to the Washington Examiner:
Joe Biden sought to reverse damage inflicted at the Democratic debate by California Sen. Kamala Harris over his decades-old anti-busing efforts.
Harris on Thursday night had singed the former vice president over his busing record and recent boasting of working productively with segregationist-era senators.
“Thirty seconds to 60 seconds on the campaign debate exchange can’t do justice to a lifetime committed to civil rights,” Biden said Friday at a labor event hosted by Jesse Jackson. “I want to be absolutely clear about my record and position on racial justice including busing. I never, never, ever opposed voluntary busing … I’ve always been in favor of using federal authority to overcome state initiated segregation.”
His comments to the Chicago audience contrast the explanation he gave during the Democratic primary debate Thursday night, where he defended his decision to opposing busing efforts because they would be “ordered by the Department of Education.”
