Biden Remembers College: 'Only Thing We Cared About Was Jobs and Panty Raids'
2020 hopeful has archived speech unearthed from the Library of Congress
2020 hopeful Joe Biden said in a 1986 speech the only thing his generation cared about was “jobs and panty raids.”
Biden was speaking to the National League of Cities in San Antonio, according to his speech archived at the Library of Congress.
Biden recounted witnessing President John F. Kennedy’s inaugural address as a senior in high school pupil and said it kindled the bonfire that started all over again.”
“For those of you who look back on it and say, ‘Things are different now than they were then,’ let me remind you — in 1959 and early 1960, there was no significant movement on the college campuses. The only thing we were concerned about in those days was jobs and panty raids,” said Biden, according to the speech.
Biden said that Kennedy’s comments about a “new generation of Americans” urged him to become interested in politics.
“You know, I’ve been in this job so long that I almost forgot what got me involved,” he said in the 1986 speech.
“I almost forgot how I used to feel and how good I used to feel about what I do.”
The term “Panty raids” was used to describe school pranks in the 1950s and 1960s groups of male students would break into female dorms and steal their underwear.

It is not clear whether Biden took part in the panty raid during his time in college.
Last week, Biden attempted to twist President Donald Trump's famous "Make America Great Again" slogan by declaring "Make America Moral Again."
The irony of the "moral" twist on the phrase was sadly lost on "Creepy Uncle Joe," however, as his campaign has been dogged with allegations of inappropriate behavior towards women before it was even officially announced.
