The Great Progressive Attack on Biden Has Begun (Wash Post)

Per this morning's Washington Post:

"Liberals go after Biden, trying to blunt his candidacy and a centrist surge among Democrats"

"The former vice presidentís standing hasnít ebbed as some liberals hoped, so he and other moderates are now targeted in a fight for Democratic Party control."

3. I'm really glad that my candidate doesn't attack other candidates

 

Although I really don't like the way Biden is being pushed like he is the best chance to beat Trump (which I disagree with), have disagreed with him on some things and believe there are some valid topics he can be criticized about I think a lot of the stuff hurled at him is complete and utter BS.

His memes with Obama are legendary, too.

5. Yours and most of the others. I saw a picture this weekend of Klobuchar and Harris....

 

....along with their husbands posing for pictures, and Harris and Warren are close too.

Disagreement on issues is one thing, disrespect is something totally different and unnecessary.

7. you are right

 

it is BS but it is a fact of life in the Dem. primaries.

I like Beto and am not happy with the attacks coming his way either.

4. "centrist surge"? Give me a fucking break

 

If there was a centrist surge, then Gillibrand, Booker and Hickenlooper would be in 2nd, 3rd and 4th place behind Biden.

Biden is in first place not due to centrist policies (what are his policies anyway?), but because of name recognition only. Things will shift significantly in a month after the first debates, and even moreso by the September debates.

By the time the first votes are cast, Biden will likely be the only centrist (unless you consider Harris a centrist) left running.

6. "because of name recognition only"

 

Sanders' name recognition is nearly 100% and Warren's is around 90%.

The "name recognition only" argument is nonsense.

8. Disagree

 

Beto is a centrist and he will be around a long time.

9. I like Biden, but he was never even in my top 5. HOWEVER...

 

Seeing the kind of bullshit attacks heís receiving makes me more inclined to support him.

12. Great point

 

The attacks from the far left will backfire and make more true Democrats support Biden and/or whoever wins the nomination.
