1. so since Biden is attacking now

 

he and you will have no problem if Booker attacks later right?

By the way, I have no problem with Biden attacking. Attacking is what happens in a contested primary, to expect otherwise is silly.

What I find a little problematic is the belief that there can be no attacks (especially against Biden).

5. There's tons of attacks against Biden..

 

he's the front runner.

You think if someone else were the frontrunner right now.. so many wouldn't have the long knives out against them?

ETA.. Booker started this crap.. Biden has every right to check out his record.. see if he lives in a Glass House.

He would have said nothing about Booker otherwise.

8. Of COURSE they would

 

and if Biden wasn't, he'd be attacking too.

If Harris goes into the lead, she better get ready for attacks.

That's. How. It. Works.

So all of this OMG Biden is being attacked is...a little silly to me.

So yeah, Booker started it.

Who’s “assum(ing) there are to be no attacks ever by anyone”?

What a strange strawman argument, where did you hear that one?

6. It clearly states that Biden is RESPONDING to Cory's ATTACKS. Joe is a dignified, seasoned statesman

 

who will not resort to attacks, especially the unforgivable ones which involve personally attacking someone's character as opposed to their policies.

10. so Biden can't ignore

 

the attack of a one percenter??

Again, I've got no problem with attacks, I just have a problem with the complaining about being attacked.

If it's a good attack, it sticks, if it isn't, then it bounces back on the attacker.

That's how it always works.

because you want the status quo to remain with Biden in the lead, thus the idea of the lead guy being attacked is some sort of crazy idea to you.

22. It's a conundrum when the one percenter only seems interested in attacking Biden

 

Does anyone actually know what Booker is for? Or what his campaign platform and reasons for running are?

Furthermore on my count he has made a number of veiled digs at Biden without naming him (and had a dig at Sanders last week)...it just seems his campaign is to be a spoiler from within.

12. No surprises this time

 

"Biden says he was surprised by Harris attack at Democrats' debate

Former US vice president Joe Biden said in an interview broadcast on Friday that he had not expected Senator Kamala Harris to confront him on racial issues during their 2020 Democratic presidential candidate debate."

https://news.yahoo.com/biden-says-surprised-harris-attack-democrats-debate-190211714.html

The 1994 Crime Bill is definitely going to be a big issue in the July 31st debate.
Better to get this issue out of the way earlier than later.

We'll see how much traction it gets in the polls afterwards.

30. Booker has been messaging a debate prologue for the last 10 days

 

"I felt disrespected" kept popping up in the press in relation to the busing issue/segregationist conversation the two men presumably had after the first debate. I knew then Booker was working himself up to a debate 2 strategy after Harris spiked in the polls. Booker doesn't have anything to lose with his numbers parked in the basement. And now the comments on Joe's criminal justice reform proposal have turned negative. So-o-o be prepared for incoming!!

What Biden's campaign has done is send a preemptive parcel Booker's way, let him deal with the fallout of his own history and also acknowledge that not punching down does not mean no punching back when it comes to defending a record. Biden has admitted he was surprised by Kamala Harris' ambush. I don't think we'll see a repeat of that on the second round.
