Voting Bloc Big Picture
I am very tired of Joe Biden. My vote for him was already hanging by a thread before his disastrous interview with Charlamagne tha God on Friday.

Biden Blunder Backpedal

Former Veep Asks Forgiveness
Former Vice President said Friday that he regrets telling radio host Charlamagne Tha God earlier in the day that if you support "then you ain't black." Speaking on a call with black business leaders, Biden described the remarks as "cavalier" and said he never meant to seem as if he was taking black voters for granted or telling them who they ought to support.
