During the same Democratic fundraising event in which he brushed off conservatives like Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, Vice President Joe Biden also entertained his guests with a little revisionist history lesson on the Supreme Court and Bush v. Gore (via Washington Examiner):
“This man was elected president of the United States of America,” Biden said according to the pool report. “No, no, no. He was elected president of the United States of America. But for the good of the nation, when the bad decision in my view was made, he did the right thing for the nation.”
Biden, a potential 2016 candidate for president, praised Gore’s decision to accept the Supreme Court’s decision and walk away from the presidency.
“I can’t think of very many who would put his country first like that, at a really, really, really difficult time,” he said. “There’s an awful lot of folks Al and I both know who have run for president and still haven’t gotten over it.” [...]
“Al, you set an example for this country that is going to live as long as recorded history, about the man who won by a decision that I think constitutional scholars now and in the future will conclude was an ill fated decision,” Biden said. “The way you stepped up, it was amazing.”
