Biden Goes From "Apologize For What?" To "I'm Sorry" Over Segregationist Fiasco

<p>After getting kicked down an elevator shaft by a <a href="https://www.politico.com/story/2019/06/28/kamala-harris-joe-biden-debate-1390383">well prepared</a> Kamala Harris during the first Democratic primary debates, former Vice President Joe Biden has gone from "<a href="https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-20/biden-doubles-down-after-reminding-everyone-democrats-owned-slaves">Apologize for what?</a>" to "I'm sorry" over remarks he made about working with segregationist Democrats when he entered DC politics. </p>

<p>Speaking to a mostly black audience at a Sumter, South Carolina campaign stop, Biden told supporters "Was I wrong a few weeks ago to somehow give the impression to people that I was praising those men who I successfully opposed time and again? <strong>Yes I was. I regret it. I’m sorry for any of the pain or misconception</strong>," according to <i><a href="https://twitter.com/MariannaNBCNews/status/1147587222641762304">NBC News</a>. </i></p>

<p>Biden, 76, asked the audience: "Should that misstep define 50 years of my record for fighting for civil rights and racial justice in this country?" adding "I hope not. I don’t think so." </p>

<p>Meanwhile, Biden's numbers appear to be in freefall - while Harris has quickly overtaken both Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren according to <a href="https://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2020/president/us/2020_democratic_presidential_nomination-6730.html"><em>RealClearPolitics</em></a>. </p>

<p>Turns out nobody really cared about Biden's <a href="https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-04-05/biden-not-sorry-anything-after-seven-accusers-and-countless-groping-videos-threaten">flagrant groping</a> of women and children, or allegations that he abused his position as Vice President for <a href="https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-06-20/good-morning-america-slams-biden-dodging-nepotism-questions-ukraine-china-dealings">extreme nepotism</a>. Mentioning that he worked with segregationist Democrats in the 1970s to "get things done," on the other hand, has caused a double-digit drop from lead in early May.</p><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/zerohedge/feed/~4/5Z5oIZgcrhE" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
