(Big League Politics) – Progressive commentator Sally Kohn, a frequent face on CNN, wrote a column for USA Today Thursday morning comparing Democrat candidate Joe Biden’s record to dog vomit.
Liberals are coming after Biden hard as Biden’s Democrat rivals scramble to bolster their name ID to take on the establishment Democrat, with David Axelrod even mocking his attempt to celebrate Best Friends Day on Twitter with Barack Obama. Biden is a prime target for his opponents’ barbs in Iowa, where a poll shows him leading the field with 24 percent support, eight points ahead of Bernie Sanders.

Anyone who has paid attention knows I’m not a big fan of the corporate centrist candidate from the great banking state of Delaware. But I swear, I have been all along and remain willing to not only vote for Biden but enthusiastically campaign for and support him if he is the Democratic nominee…

Last Tuesday, June 4, Biden announced that he still supports the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the use of federal funds to pay for abortion. That wasn’t necessarily a revelation for Biden,who as a senator voted for a measure that would allow states to overturn Roe v. Wade and more recently, as vice president, reportedly tried to undermine the contraception mandate in the Affordable Care Act. This is the same Biden who, in 1974 said, “When it comes to issues like abortion, amnesty, and acid, I’m about as liberal as your grandmother. I don’t like the Supreme Court decision on abortion. I think it went too far. I don’t think that a woman has the sole right to say what should happen to her body.”…

The left-wing opposition to Biden is fascinating and will only increase as primary season plays out.
