The transcript of Joe Biden’s comments on flip-flopping to accept super PAC money after he said he wouldn’t is below. He scapegoats to blame his decision on Trump, Russia and the gun lobby. The transcript shows how Biden points the finger at everyone but his campaign and ultimately himself.
Is anyone surprised by this? No!
The truth is that Biden needs the funds to survive.
And what do you know…Just a few hours ago, a former aide of Biden’s launched a Super PAC for Biden:
Larry Rasky, who worked on Biden’s two previous presidential campaigns, is listed as the super PAC’s treasurer.
Just the other night, Biden stood down a young college coed when she questioned his flip-flop on Super PACs. He gave another nonanswer when he said “Look at my record, child, Look at my record.”
TRANSCRIPT OF BIDEN ON ACCEPTING SUPER PAC MONEY:
“Well, Super PAC, we’re not doing that either. Here’s what happened.
BIDEN BLAMES RUSSIANS AND CHINESE:
You know, there’s been a grassroots response out there to the fact that Trump has gone out and decided to not only ask the Russians and the Chinese to get involved in making sure I’m not the nominee, but he has — his — his folks are spending an awful lot of money. He’s raised a lot of money, they tell me over $10 million spent in advertising so far, telling lies about me.
TOSSES THE DECISION TO THE DEMOCRATS AND NOT HIS CAMPAIGN:
And so, this is an understandable response from Democrats who desperately don’t want to see him re-elected president. My guess is we would have done the same thing for anybody who was attacked in the Democratic primary.
GUN LOBBY FRIENDS:
You got to ask yourself why — if I’m the guy who’s not doing well — why is Trump spending — and the fundraisers, his gun lobby friends, et cetera, spending millions of dollars this early to try to determine who their Democratic opponent will be?
The one thing he doesn’t want to do is face me, and that seems pretty clear.”
