Biden throws himself under the bus...

The school bus. Harris is a very smooth assassin, and still my favourite in this crowd.

I don't understand why the media is making a big deal out of this.
Harris cited herself as an example of what busing kids around can produce? Seriously? It has nothing to do with her skills, it was the product of being in buses, so we should bus every kid around.
If this is what democrats are focusing on, consider Trump re-elected.

I'm in agreement with the OP - Biden is on the record voting against busing black kids to white schools to aid in the reduction of segregation. For many, that is a pretty scathing thing to do.

I will say Harris has been known to “go the extra mile” to achieve her goals.

The debate of forced integration is still valid today... Not sure it ever was in the interest of the kids versus the self rightness of thinking you are doing the politically correct thing...

Harris: $500 stipend (basic universal income), and abolition of private health insurance. No thanks!

Biden stood his ground, didn't try to rewrite history, and gave a good answer as to why he voted the way he did.
My wife was bussed in the late 70's (thanks Barefoot Sanders, a judge, for ruining the Dallas ISD). Instead of going to the middle school 3 blocks away (a six or seven minute walk), she was bussed across Dallas (an hour ride). Her parents did what almost every middle class family in Dallas did back then....moved to the suburbs. The DISD still hasn't recovered. We tried it for 2 years (bussing was over by then) and it was AWFUL!! So we moved to McKinney. Good public schools.

Joe was legitimately confused...

After all, Harris wasn't bused pursuant to a federal court order. He is too old for this "post truth" political environment, whereas Harris fits it like a glove. She has already claimed to have misunderstood the question about private insurance.

P.S. Busing shouldn't be considered hallowed ground. It contributed to white flight and the hollowing out of urban neighbourhoods. Biden is on the record as foreseeing this darker side.

So the moral of the busing story is that busing kids creates Presidential candidates.

Biden lost that exchange. He came across as flustered, angry, and on the verge of muttering nonsense. If that little quip from Harris tripped him up, hows he going to handle Trump?

Biden never was a great speaker or debate wizard but now his gray matter is going soft on him and he canít keep up intellectually. He looked lost, uncomfortable and flustered last night and itís only getting started. Stick a fork in sleepy Joe.

i dont know why they even have democratic debates. just like last time with clinton and bernie, the DNC is going to pick who they want, and manipulate the election to get them.

Was it Pete that told Bernie to "pass the torch" to the younger generation? Ouch. Savage.

As RD mentioned, mandatory busing sucked taking kids out of their neighborhoods for a trip across a city to a school an hour away. Voluntary busing was another thing...In Hamilton Massachusetts, we had kids bussed from Roxbury and South Boston to our little 4,000 population town on the North Shore . Fer chrisakes, we played polo.

There was one black family in town and folks used to say the members of the family were retarded.

We were so "unexposed" to black culture we all naturally assumed we'd have a championship basketball team and I was on the team and a little worried.

However, they all smoked Kools and looked at me like I was a crazy fucker and said no way; no basketball. All in all , it was good but those guys volunteered to come to our little town which was the home of General Patton and the Myopia Hunt Club. It is also featured in the new bestseller, "The Pioneers" where Mannasah Cutler and others negotiated for greener pastures to settle the Ohio territory. I don't think bussing worked.

I do think it is so funny how everyone is getting their panties in a bunch over these debates. Same thing happened when the Republicans were all clamoring for their 15 seconds of fame back in 2015. Wasn't there something like 17 candidates back then all throwing out their bullshit hoping some of it sticks during their 12 debates? No different than what the Democraps are doing right now.
