Here’s a little flashback video from 1992 that C-SPAN dug up on Biden. Do you think he would still stand by what he said?
Before he was vice president, Sen. Joe Biden argued in 1992 against a Republican president nominating someone to the U.S. Supreme Court during an election year.
In a clip unearthed by C-SPAN Monday, the Delaware Democrat argued on the Senate floor that President George H.W. Bush should not nominate a new Supreme Court justice “in the full throes of an election year.”
“It is my view that if a Supreme Court Justice resigns tomorrow or within the next several weeks, or resigns at the end of the summer, President Bush should consider following the practice of a majority of his predecessors and not — and not — name a nominee until after the November election is completed,” Biden said in the clip, which C-SPAN posted on Twitter.
