Joe Biden and the Democrats are facing the biggest challenge of this campaign.
Democrats’ reaction to the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg put Biden in a box.
And all hell broke loose when Joe Biden said these six words about the Supreme Court.
Democrats’ only hope to stop the Senate from confirming Amy Coney Barrett is to bully Republicans into delaying the vote.
Big-name Democrats such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez warned that Democrats will pack the Supreme Court with up to as many as six additional Supreme Court Justices if they win total power in November.
Biden and running mate Kamala Harris refused to answer questions on this subject claiming it is a distraction invented by President Trump despite the fact that calls for packing the court trace back to the Democrat primary and even Kamala Harris expressed an openness to the idea.
In an interview with a local Cincinnati TV affiliate, Biden tried to deflect the question by falsely claiming that President Trump exercising his Article II powers to nominate Amy Coney Barrett and the Senate exercising its Article I power to advise and consent constituted court-packing.
“Look what I want them to focus on, as I’ve respectfully suggested, court packing is going on now,” Biden stammered.
Biden also falsely claimed that the President stopped being the President and Congress lost all authority because it was an election year.
“Never before when an election has already begun and millions of votes already cast, has it — that a supreme court nominee was put forward, had never happened before,” Biden continued. “One of the reasons is the Constitution implies that the only shot the American people get to determine who will be on a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court or federal courts is when they pick their senator and their president because the president names and the Senate advises and consents.”
Finally, Biden tried to put the issue aside by not taking a definitive position on court-packing.
Biden declared he doesn’t “want to get off on that whole issue,” and the former Vice President claimed he’s “not a fan of court packing.”
Not being a fan of court-packing is not the same thing as opposing court-packing.
Biden’s answered signaled to Democrats that he would claim to sign a court-packing bill if it reached his desk and claim he was only forced to approve the measure because the people’s elected representatives support it.
If Biden truly opposed court-packing he could just say so.
The fact that Biden continually refuses to simply say he opposes court-packing and would veto any bill to expand the Supreme Court means he secretly supports court-packing and that is the signal he wants to send to Democrats in Congress.
