Biden leaves door open to Supreme Court packing

Biden leaves door open to Supreme Court packing

Says will consider it depending on what happens with Amy Coney Barrett nomination, will have definite answer before Election Day.

At the ABC News town hall with Joe Biden, Biden was asked about court-packing, a question he previously has refused to answer.

To his credit, George Stephanopolous did press him on the issue (although most of the event was softball), and Biden refused to rule it out, saying he would consider various options if Coney Barrett is rushed through confirmation.

The answer is somewhat rambling, but stay with it. The door is open. He says he’ll have a definite answer before Election Day.

GS: Well, right now it looks like they’re going to have a vote around Halloween. So if they vote on it, it’s before the election. If they vote on before the election, you are open to expanding the court.

BIDEN: I’m open to considering what happens from that point on.

GS: You know you said so many times during the campaign, all through the course of your career, it’s important to level …?

BIDEN: Well, it is, but George, if I, if I say no matter what answer I gave you, if I say it, that’s the headline tomorrow, it won’t be about what’s going on now. The improper way they’re proceeding.

GS: But don’t voters have a right to know where you are.

BIDEN: They do have a right to know what I stand and they’ll have a right to know where I stand before they vote.

GG: So you’ll come out with a clear position before election day.

BIDEN: Yes. Depending on how they handle this.

He really seems juiced-up tonight. Utters lots of words and says nothing.

    Biden is already canned ALPO just like Pelosi.

    Luongo Explains Pelosi’s Choice: Steal The Election Or Be Destroyed

    I’ve learned a few things about politics by watching my goats over the years. Herd queens have to be beaten to step aside. They won’t give up status willingly.

    I saw this first hand when a vicious challenge ended with a broken horn, humiliation and blood. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is a tough old goat who is clearly making her last stand, facing the toughest fight of her political career.

    Congress is at a crossroads over a stimulus package before the election. Pelosi has run out of good choices to force the Republicans into another bad deal, which is her trademark move.

    Internal squabbling and strategic missteps has her charting a most dangerous path.

    …..“Who has the leverage?”

    Pelosi always fronts that she’s on top of things. She rules House Democrats with an iron fist and somehow always manages to win these confrontations.

    But this time may be very different. Why?

    This time she has no leverage. This time the Republicans have the upper hand. Even Bloomberg had to admit that the situation is not in Pelosi’s favor, while talking about all of her options…..

    It isn’t that the economic situation is good. It is that there is simply no justification for continued abject panic over COVID-19 to keep people on the dole.

    Public opinion has turned against Pelosi and the Democrats in places where they pushed too hard. People want their lives back and for the looting and rioting to end.

    It’s clear Pelosi’s strategy has been to allow destruction in battleground states and blame Trump for it. This was their cover story for forcing the Republicans to bail out failing Blue States whose economies were already in trouble regardless of the COVID-19 lockdowns. States like California and Illinois need massive bail outs to survive.

    Hell, California needs a lot more than money at this point…..

    Absolutely “no doubt about it”…..Biden/Harris, intend to raise taxes, { driving business “back out of America” }…… Reduce personal freedoms, to before the Constitution, Continue to kill human babies for “profit”, & “inconvenience”……Continue to line his pockets, with “un-ethical” monies, from other countries….*Demoncrats, have an evil agenda, & it does not bode well for this Republic!

I couldn’t stand to watch him drone on and on. I listened to him talk about a “national standard” for COVID response and mask wearing, and I just wanted to barf so I shut him down.

How big of a fucking moron do you have to be to think that the COVID response in NYC needs to be the same as it is in rural Idaho?

Stupid fucking dolt.

    The same “thinkers” who mandated a 55 mile per hor speed limit in 1974 or so, because Vermont has the same motorist needs and distances as the southwest.

      I’m not arguing against your point, but to be fair, it was done in 1974 because, thanks to the Arabs, we were in the middle of a huge “energy crisis” with gas shortages and very long lines at gas stations. Higher speeds burn gas at higher rates, so Nixon mandated the 55mph cap for that reason. “Where” didn’t seem to matter at the time. There really wasn’t an oil shortage. The Arabs were punishing us for supporting Israel in the 1973 Yom Kippur war.

        Yes, the free market works until it doesn’t. “Republican” Nixon also established wage and price controls. In truth, we’ve had only two actual conservative presidents since Eisenhower, and one of those is a retread Democrat.

          henrybowman in reply to henrybowman. | October 16, 2020 at 4:10 pm

          Sorry, meant to express: “Ah, free-market Republicans, who profess to believe that the free-market works but don’t have the courage of their convictions when push comes to shove.”

    It’s not about Biden – it’s about the ultimate whore: Harris (obama previously had the crown; hillary clinton was the rune up).

    Just like obama or hillary clinton, this dumb, sleazy, bitter bozo will be absolutely clueless, and she’ll be a push-button president for forces inside and outside of country that want to destroy out way of life, if not us.

      Ahhhh…..The honesty of it all….& so accurately descriptive, of the “lack of Character, Integrity, & morality”…..of these so called 8Demoncrats….that have infiltrated that party, like a herd of cockroaches!….{ &, that is the “nice”, things I have to say about them!}

So he’s going to completely base his decision on rearranging a co equal branch of govt on ACB? Sounds like a juvenile sore loser to me. Do they think they’ll be in the majority forever? I bet Harry Reid thought the same way when he dropped the filibuster for judges. That worked really well for them. Lol.

The difference between Trump and Biden is similar to the difference in a high performance pony car to a tired old Geo Metro. Trump is 90 miles an hour and Biden is barely off idle.

    But Biden’s not a car at all. He used to be a cart, one which sat around for 47 years just taking up space, but doesn’t even roll now.

      Exactly. A rather dull 47 yr public servant partly responsible for many of our present day ills, and now the voting population is suppose to believe that this “plainly senile” candidate is going to solve the problems he created.

        DSHornet in reply to NDA. | October 16, 2020 at 7:42 am

        In this case, would he “serve” the public, or “service” the public?

        The nuances of the English language can be such fun.

      Looks like Biden…has added an “ASS”….to help him haul his cart?

      “kamala Harr-ass”…………:O}}}

    I like a comparison between Elon Musk and the Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz – an outsized personality and capability versus someone who does not appear to be playing with a full deck.

Wonder what VP Biden’s take was on the gun running Libya deal??????

Muammar Gaddafi’s Cousin To Sue Hillary Clinton For “Destroying Libya”

BIDEN: They do have a right to know what I stand and they’ll have a right to know where I stand before they vote.

So do vote-by-mail types get their votes back?

Trump Campaign Statement

“Even though the commission canceled the in-person debate that could have happened tonight, one occurred anyway, and President Trump soundly defeated NBC’s Savannah Guthrie.”

Biden’s answer does not come before early voting, though.

Of course Biden will court pack – plus Hunter needs a new job.

No worries. Joe will do anything he wants, Gaslight the country and the dinosaur media, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Democrat party, will cover for him. Been doing that for over 40 years.

A vote for biden-harris is a vote for putin and jinping

It’s actually pathetic that this is what it’s come to.

The rabid base that they’re catering to is DEMANDING court packing.

The vast, sane, majority of the country is firmly against it.

So what are Biden and the Democrats doing?

Pandering to their lunatic fringe and not even attempting to lie to the sane majority of the country.

If they ever get power again, they will NEVER give it up willingly.

Vote accordingly.

So, yes, he would pack the Court.

And, “by election day”, this year may see the majority of voters will have already cast a ballot by then.

ABC “news” is a joke, and having Clinton’s former Chief of Staff running not just this “town hall” but having control of their “news” division is just part of it.

The fact that he didn’t ask a single question on the biggest story on the planet right now, the publication by NY Post of the Biden crime family’s corruption, obliterates any credibility ABC may still have had (not much I know). No questions on Twitter/Facebook election interference either.

Saw this response, kept flipping back and forth, the Democrat Propaganda channels can’t find any Trump voters to balance out these town halls

It’s been more than a week and still nobody has asked him why he does not want his policies to be in the headlines?

thalesofmiletus | October 16, 2020 at 11:25 am

When asked if he would pack the Supreme Court, Biden simply held up a sardine can.

Biden leaves the door open for court-packing – well, don’t leave the door open for Harris-Biden. VOTE MAGA 2020 TRUMP LANDSLIDE!!!

BIDEN: They do have a right to know what I stand and they’ll have a right to know where I stand before they vote.
GG: So you’ll come out with a clear position before election day.
BIDEN: Yes.

By which times all the voters the Democrat have urged to vote early by mail will have already voted. What a liar.

Here’s the bottom line: Democrats are going to pack the court no matter what Republicans do in the next month. It’s what they do. We need not only to ram ACB through, we need to ram two more through just for good mesaure.
