Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

"And frankly, I'm disappointed that he hasn't issued an immediate apology for the pain his words are dredging up for many Americans. He should," Booker added. In remarks at a fundraiser Tuesday night, Biden reminisced about working with Eastland and Sen. Herman Talmadge (D-Ga.) in the Senate, saying Eastland never called him "boy." "Vice President Biden's relationships with proud segregationists are not the model for how we make America a safer and more inclusive place for black people, and for everyone," Booker said. "I have to tell Vice President Biden, as someone I respect, that he is wrong for using his relationships with Eastland and Talmadge as examples of how to bring our country together."

Joe's third gaffe in as many weeks.

I hate to have to ask this, but

Is there a 'grab'em by the ----' tape about to drop?

Sounds like Booker is having a Spartacus moment. He certainly could use the publicity. Most people had forgotten he was running.

Booker is running for something?

I try as best I can, to keep the Democrats informed of who is in their clown car...

Everytime I hear "booker" I think of this great classic.

Wow, DeBlasio piles on ...

"It's 2019 & @JoeBiden is longing for the good old days of ‘civility' typified by James Eastland. Eastland thought my multiracial family should be illegal & that whites were entitled to ‘the pursuit of dead n -- -rs,'" de Blasio wrote on Twitter, along with a photo of his African-American wife and their mixed-race son and daughter.

Sounds like my buddy, when he used to play the keys in my living room! :-)

Blowhard Blasio could use some publicity as well. Maybe he can climb to 1 percent.

De Blasio hasn't drawn enough interest yet to even make it into MSNBC's 3:00 am slot.

Booker's desperate, and Biden's comatose. You guys do realize Joe's not going to make it to 2020?

Biden is correct here. You guys should take his advice.

So AoC is full of it?

Don't forget "put y'all back in chains," ..

Biden said his crime bill would do everything but hang people for jaywalking...

Weird right?

"Biden said his crime bill would do everything but hang people for jaywalking... "

What a -----!

Trump would hang people for being falsely accused of rape.
I can see why you'd prefer that.
It's your victim mentality.

#12 AoC is usually full of it.

The way she worded the tweet suggests Biden mentioned them because they were segregationalists, implying that Biden was "waxing nostalgic" about segregation.

Yet another example of why liberals will dick punch themselves on Election Day. They always pick the wrong battles at the wrong time.

#14 It's the perfect time to attack Biden. He only recently announced and we're 8 months away from the first primaries.

There's time to coalesce around a centrist later if that's what we need to do. For now, any progressive should be praying he GTFO of the race.

Depends on your objective.

If beating Trump is your goal, Biden GTFO of the race isn't that good of thing.

If it's testing the electorate's palate for progressive ideas then it might be a good thing. If you want 4 more years of Trump it's also a good thing.

Facts not in evidence. Dems went after this phantom "middle" last time and lost. My opinion is there are far more voters to be gained by energizing an electorate than there are by trying to pry them away from the Trump cult.
