Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Hotair.com: “Biden: I never said South Carolina was my firewall”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

In today’s edition of “Is Joe Biden Losing the Narrative,” we are pointed to his long-awaited return to the Sunday talk shows. He went on Face the Nation yesterday and was confronted with some recent polling showing that his once-massive lead in the Palmetto state had all but evaporated and even his support among Black voters had been cut in half over the past month. Host Margaret Brennan then pointed out that South Carolina was supposed to be his firewall, in large part because of his strong minority voter support, and asked if that was no longer the case. Amazingly, Biden responded by saying that he’d never said South Carolina was his firewall. Huh? (Free Beacon)

“No, that’s not right,” Biden said. “I’ve said I’m going to do well there, and I’ll do well there, and I’ll do well beyond there as well.”

Biden has explicitly called the state his firewall. In a Feb. 2 interview, for example, he told MSNBC, “I think I have a real firewall in South Carolina.

As you can see from that excerpt, it took no time at all for the media to produce examples of Biden calling the state his firewall. Why try to deny it now?

This brings me back to an observation that I believe was first made here by Allahpundit but remains relevant to this day. If this were any other candidate in the field we could probably just write it off as a typical politician telling a lie to make himself look better on national TV. But given his recent history, is it possible that Joe wasn’t lying and that he has simply forgotten saying that on multiple occasions?
