2020 White house hopeful Joe repair is Biden before the next round of the Democrat primary debates; Peter Doocy reports from the National Urban League conference in Indianapolis.

The former Vice-President, Joe Biden, turn up the volume on his criticism of the presidential primary rival, next week for the second round of democratic debates, where he then stand next to two of his fiercest political opponents.

“I’m not so polite, this time,” the front-runner said in the nomination race, supporters at a fundraiser in Detroit on Wednesday evening.


And asked by Fox News on Thursday, when he smiled aggressively in the coming week, the showdown, Biden, as he teased simply “we’ll see.”

Biden has already begun, taking swipes at Sen. Cory Booker’s record in Newark, mayor and press back at the criticism of Sen. Kamala Harris. This, according to Biden, the once large polling lead over his 2020 rivals worsened after his less-than-stellar performance a month ago in the first round of the democratic presidential nomination debates, when he was cold-cocked by Harris.

At the crucial moment of the debate, the California Democrat, criticized the recent comments of the former Vice-President of spotlighting his ability to find similarities, in the 1970s, the racial segregation that senators, with whom he does not agree, and about his opposition decades ago to federally mandated school busing.

Biden told reporters after his appearance on Wednesday at the annual NAACP Convention that he “was overly polite in the way I did, as a response to an attack” in the first debate.

The former Vice President was something. “overly polite” this week, as he pushed back violently against attacks by other rival – Sen. Cory of New Jersey took over the role of Biden as senator from Delaware in the craft, the landmark 1994 law template

This legislation was the fault of Booker, Harris and many other Democrats for their contribution to the mass incarceration of black people in the United States.


According to Biden at the beginning of this week, a new, broad plan to reduce the country’s prison population, the reform of the nation’s criminal justice system and to be revealed to eliminate racial and income disparities in sentencing – the reverse would be the President of the stricter set of conditions for crack versus powder cocaine, which were implemented by the 1994 act – Booker on the target of the former Vice took.

The senator slammed Biden as “the proud architect of a failed system,” and argued that the law put the template “mass incarceration on steroids and so I’m disappointed that he took him, to have so long, until this.”

But Biden punched back to Booker’s claim that he was the mass detention of “architect,” told reporters: “Cory knows that this is true.”

The former Vice President then thrust at his rivals record — criticizing the hold and staggers of black men from Newark police during Booker’s tenure as mayor. He added that during his years as Vice-President, “the justice Department declined to take action against them, the police held accountable. He (Booker) objected to Federal interference.”

Booker denied these allegations.

Biden has also been up on the volume on his criticism of Harris about their support for “Medicare for all.”


At the same time, he another leading 2020 rivals – sen Bernie Sanders of Vermont to be honest about the impact of the implementation of the single-payer health care plan picked up.

Sanders, the independent senator from Vermont, making his second straight bid for the democratic nomination, has long pushed for “Medicare for all.” Sanders advertises that according to his proposal, premiums, co-payments and out-of-pocket costs would, however, be aware that taxes would increase.

But Harris has said, you would control the implementation of the action plan without raising middle class.

Biden – who is the only one of the top contenders who operated against the plan in which all Americans receive their health insurance from a government program such as Medicare, on Wednesday, the question of their truth.

“I find that people say they are for Medicare-for-all, but they are not taxing the middle class, because we need to do that. Come on. My point is, this is a fantasy world here,” Biden emphasized.

“I think we should have an honest debate. You see, you can’t go and you can’t run for President and beat Donald Trump to pay without leveling with the American people about what you do and how you’re going for. I’m eager to see the debate,” he added.

Biden will not have to wait long. He’ll be standing in the middle of the stage on Wednesday night, surrounded by Booker on one side, and Harris on his other side.

Mo Elleithee, the founding executive director of the Georgetown University, Institute for politics and Public service and Fox News contributor, noted that there is a lot on the line for Biden next week.

Elleithee, a senior spokesman for Hilary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, which later served as the communications director for the Democratic National Committee, said that “Biden recoil must. Biden needs to show people that last time was a coincidence.”

Biden’s new aggressiveness in relation to the election campaign is a shift from the first two months of his campaign, when he was only rarely his rivals.

Asked at the beginning of June, when he would return, fire, Biden told Fox News: “I think the worst thing we could do is, in a match where we one after the other in the Democratic party. So I’m going to try my best not to have a negative relation to my opponents.”

And he said that “the only way, I will not go down, Trumping the level when he starts his attacks, I’m not going to go down to someone else level if you are starting to attack.”

But he added that he would respond to “set the facts straight.” He added, “I’m going to respond to the allegations. I’m not likely to go, and point out what they do.”
