His recent abortion policy reversal, a clumsy climate plan and revelations about his lack of military service during the Vietnam War as well as resurfaced video of him falsely claiming to have marched in the Civil Rights movement remind us that Joe Biden not only has baggage, but is, in fact, mostly baggage.
Up to and including the first part of this week, Biden supported the Hyde Amendment, which bans the use of federal dollars to fund abortion in most cases. As the progressives in the Democratic Party as well as the media continued to lambaste him for it, he finally declared “No mas,” and by Thursday he completely reversed his position.
For his trouble he still received a mauling from party-favorite Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. “If you’re going to come out and say you used to support the Hyde Amendment,” she said. “… that’s not progressive. That’s not a progressive position.”
Tuesday, just as the Biden campaign was releasing his climate plan, they began apologizing for it after the Daily Caller reported that much of it appeared to be borrowed from other sources without citation. “Several citations, some from sources cited in other parts of the plan, were inadvertently left out of the final version of the 22-page document,” read the subsequent statement.
