Joe Biden Attacks Clinton At Fundraiser
Oh fun. Which liberal can out lie the other?
Check it out:
Vice President Joe Biden reportedly attacked the Clinton administration’s record on economic inequality during a closed-door Democratic fundraiser in South Carolina on Friday, prompting renewed speculation that the former Democratic senator will run against Hillary Clinton for the presidency in 2016.
CNN’s Peter Hamby was told by three separate sources at the fundraiser that Biden explained how rising inequality — now a frequent trope among Democratic politicians — in fact began during the later years of Bill Clinton’s presidency.
“The fraying of middle-class economic security did not begin during President George W. Bush’s terms,” Hamby wrote, paraphrasing Biden’s pitch, “but earlier, in the ‘later years of the Clinton administration.’”
On Monday, CNN’s John King broke down the news along with The Atlantic’s Molly Ball and The New York Times’ Jonathan Martin. “So a criticism of Bill Clinton,” King mused. “Is that also an implicit criticism of Hillary Clinton, who might be his rival?”
