Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden weighed-in Thursday on this week’s presidential debates; admitting he was “a little bit surprised” at his own party’s attacks on former President Barack Obama.
“I was a little surprised how much the incoming was about Barack, about the President. I mean I’m proud of having served with him, I’m proud of the job he did. I don’t think there’s anything he has to apologize for,” said Biden.

Most Democratic presidential candidates are now publicly embracing Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ once-radical agenda; backing the ‘Green New Deal,’ Medicare for All, and other far-left proposals considered politically impossible just years ago.
“A year after the former bartender shot to prominence with an upset primary win over establishment Democrat Joe Crowley, many of her hard-left campaign planks are now gospel among top 2020 hopefuls,” reports Fox News.
“We must have and adopt a Green New Deal,” Sen. Kamala Harris said during Wednesday night’s debate.
“Further, Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., backs a federal jobs guarantee, another plank that AOC’s campaign site endorsed on the basis that ‘anyone who is willing and able to work shouldn’t struggle to find employment,’” adds Fox.
