Bernie Sanders assailed Biden over his voting record on the Iraq war and Julian Castro, who served with Biden in the Obama Administration, criticized his characterization of his relationship with the former president.
“Every time something good about Barack Obama comes up, he says oh, I was there, I was there, I was there — that’s me too, “Castro said. “And then every time somebody questions part of the Administration that we were both part of, he says that was the President,” Castro said.
Biden said, “I stand with Barack Obama all eight years, good, bad and indifferent.”
Vermont Senator Bernie sanders went after Biden over his support for the war in Iraq.
Biden later gave a rambling answer to a question on education, saying “They don’t know what- They don’t know what quite what to do. Play the radio. Make sure the television-excuse me, make sure you have the record player on at night. The phone-make sure the kids hear words. A kid coming from a very poor school-er, a very poor background will hear 4 million words fewer spoken by the time they get there….”
The answer prompted Castro to simply say, “That’s quite a lot.”
