Democratic White House hopeful Joe Biden's campaign said Monday that the former vice president misspoke when he said that he immediately opposed the Iraq War.
"Vice President Biden misspoke by saying that he declared his opposition to the war immediately," senior campaign adviser Antony Blinken told The Washington Post for a fact-checking piece on Biden's Iraq stance.
"He opposed the way we went to war and the way the war was being carried out. He has for many years called his vote a mistake and takes full responsibility for it."
Biden in 2002 voted to give then-President George W. Bush the authority to launch the war.
Now the Democratic primary front-runner, Biden has said he opposed the Iraq War from the moment it started.
The Post's fact check comes days after political commentator David Axelrod called out Biden for allegedly distorting his record on Iraq.
Axelrod, who was chief strategist to former President Obama, linked to a story from Slate titled "When Did Joe Biden Start Believing He Had Opposed the Iraq War?"

Groper has processing issues among others.
I actually feel badly for Joe.
Charlotte vs. Charlottesville
VT vs. NH
And that’s just in the last month or so.
I think Biden is just so used to saying whatever he thinks will sound good that he can’t help himself.
Why doesn’t he say, “Look, I’ve been a public servant for a long time, and always tried to do right by you, even if I can’t remember what I did. And I’ll try to do right by you in the future.” ?
If you are a Republican, you lied. If you are a Democrat, you misspoke.
These days Joe is lucky if he remembers to wipe.
“Guys, apparently President Biden misspoke. Have you launched yet?”
He was against it after he was for it? Truth over facts?
“...senior campaign adviser Antony Blinken...”
Is he with the Winken, Blinken and Nodd Group?
Axelrod has been a very harsh and instant critic against all things Biden.
So who is paying Axelrod?
I'm sure he has a paymaster... Doubt he's doing this because he has become conservative or simply doing his civic duty...
accurately or clearly......in a way that is correct in all details;
i.e., not made up...
Same press release, different content, different day.
Obama had a Team of people that would follow him around and correct what he said ,LOL
Joe Biden goes to sleep during an interview:!
Biden probably was misquoted for saying “I advised Ike when I was Vice President to wait another day for better weather at Normandy.”
NOW you tell him. Can't remember everything.
