No, Sen McConnell, Joe Biden Didn’t Say That

What Joe Biden actually said about confirming Supreme Court Justices during election years:

Perhaps Sen. McConnell has presented so many "untruths" to the U.S. public that his brain has actually closed down and he no longer knows a "truth" if he should happen to stumble upon one. Further, he may also be unaware that there is a truthful video history available for the rest of us to review. - RB

No, Joe Biden Didn’t Say That The Senate Should Block Supreme Court Nominees During An Election Year, Igor Volsky, Think Progress, 22 Feb 2016.

Note: 22 Feb 2016
"Biden's office has released the following statement: "Nearly a quarter century ago, in June 1992, I gave a lengthy speech on the Senate floor about a hypothetical vacancy on the Supreme Court. Some critics say that one excerpt of my speech is evidence that I oppose filling a Supreme Court vacancy in an election year. This is not an accurate description of my views on the subject. Indeed, as I conclude in the same statement critics are pointing to today, urged the Senate and White House to work together to overcome partisan differences to ensure the Court functions as the Founding Fathers intended. That remains my position today."
