35. What's to figure out? Haven't you seen all the union endorsements that Biden already has?

 

Unfortunately people don't get into the guts of an article or past the headline. The premise of the OP's headline/article is false, if not blatantly offensive. As has already been posted here, Steven Cozen is NOT a "union buster", but I guess that doesn't fit the narrative.

Here's the FIRST sentence in the article in the OP:

PITTSBURGH, PA. On Monday, Vice President Joe Biden intends to launch his presidential campaign at the Teamsters Local 249 in Pittsburgh with United Steelworkers President Leo Gerard appearing alongside him.


Why would the President of the Pittsburgh local of the United Steelworkers Union endorse Biden if he's a buddy of a "union buster".

Has anyone bothered to look into the background/history of the author of that hit piece, Mike Elk? For one thing, he was employed by the Obama/Biden campaign, perhaps he was dismissed or has an ax to grind for some reason? He was also named 2015 Man of the Year by The Washington Free Beacon!!

https://freebeacon.com/men-of-the-year/2015-man-of-the-year-mike-elk/

Seems mighty suspicious that someone who was the Free Beacon's Man of the Year is now falsely characterizing Steven Cozen and his association with Joe Biden.

Sorry, the credibility of the characterization of the people discussed in that article is, as it should be, suspect.


If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
