Democrats hate William Barr.
Liberals want the Attorney General removed from office and even jailed.
And you won’t believe what Joe Biden said about William Barr.
One reason pundits think Joe Biden is not as strong as candidate as many believe is his long record that straddles the different eras of the Democrat Party.
In the 1990s, the Democrats were not the identity-politics-obsessed socialists they are now.
And back in 1995, when Joe Biden was still a Senator from Delaware, he praised Barr’s tenure as Attorney General in the George H.W. Bush administration and called Barr the “one of the best I ever worked with.”
CBS News reports:
In 1995, Sen. Joe Biden offered high praise for William Barr, the once and future attorney general who has been roundly criticized by Democrats for his handling of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the 2016 election.
“As I know you know, but others should know, too, I truly enjoyed working with you when you were attorney general,” Biden told Barr, who had served as President George H.W. Bush’s attorney general in the early 1990s. “You were one of the best I have ever worked with, and there have been a lot of attorneys general since I have been here, and I mean that sincerely.”
When Biden made that remark, he was the highest ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee. Barr, who had moved to the private sector after Bush was defeated in the 1992 election, was testifying at a hearing on “enhancing the effectiveness of incarceration.”
Nowadays, Democrats like Adam Schiff call Barr “the second most dangerous man in America.”
It’s doubtful Biden’s single comment about Barr will sink his campaign.
But Democrats have adopted a war-like posture toward the Trump administration and the GOP in general.
That comment taken in the totality of Biden’s long history in Washington, D.C. could be enough to have angry Democrat voters look around for another candidate.
