Joe Biden seems to be trying to move into the White House by whatever means he can, including behaving in a most chameleon-like series of reversals in is positions. Notably, he flip-flopped on the Hyde Amendment. At first, he tried to convince us he believes in its viability but now supports the use of federal dollars for abortion procedures. On that topic, he was quoted as saying, “Folks, times have changed. I don’t think these guys are going to let up,”
He also has his own version of climate change policy, but even the freshman congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dismissed it and instead called Gov. Jay Inslee’s (WA-D) proposal the “Gold Standard.” According to a report from the Hill, she said, “Scientifically, anything that is less than helping us cut carbon emissions in half by 2030 is going to be too late.”
Biden’s plan aims to eliminate fossil fuel usage by 2050, but even AOC’s dismissal wasn’t enough to deter him from propping her up on a pedestal.
This from Breitbart:
Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) praised far-left freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) during a CNN interview that aired Friday, describing her as a “brilliant, bright woman.”
While he hit a range of subjects during the exhaustive interview, he praised the Democrat socialist lawmaker, despite marketing himself as a moderate Democrat.
“That’s what this election is about. I’m happy to debate that issue and all those issues with my friends because guess what, look who won the races. Look who won last time out,” Biden said, referring to the extreme left’s victories in the midterm election.
Ocasio-Cortez beat incumbent former Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-NY) by a little more than 4,000 votes – 15,897 to Crowley’s 11,761.
However, Biden still maintained that a moderate Democrat will stand a better chance of beating President Trump in the general election.
“By the way, I think Ocasio-Cortez is a brilliant, bright woman, but she won a primary,” Biden continued. “In the general election fights, who won? Mainstream Democrats who are very progressive on social issues and very strong on education and healthcare”:

During his 2020 campaign, Joe Biden has tried desperately to paint the picture that he’s a moderate. If you take a closer look, you’ll see otherwise. I think his positions are more extreme than most, which all by itself is an “accomplishment” considering the field of candidates with whom he has to compete.
For example, he supports the confiscation of guns by the government. During the first debate, he said, “Folks, look, and I would buy back [assault] weapons. We already started talking about that. We tried to get it done. I think it can be done. And it should be demanded that we do it. And that’s a good expenditure of money.”
If he genuinely believes this is a workable position, then he needs to go back to school and get re-educated as to the limitations of the Constitution.
