He thought he could sweep this under the rug.
He was very wrong.
Now, Joe Biden said this one thing about the Supreme Court that has everyone reeling.
For months now, Joe Biden has been hounded by the media about his answer to whether or not he will pack the court.
As soon as Trump announced his nomination, Biden was outraged and demanded his version of justice to rectify a situation that did not need rectifying.
Biden left open the possibility that he would pack the court if Amy Coney Barrett was confirmed to the Supreme Court.
The radical left was behind him, shouting cries of how Barrett is insulting Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s memory and how this confirmation is unconstitutional.
However, ever since that proclamation, he has been strategically avoiding the press.
He knew that if he actually went through with his packing the court scheme, he would end up alienating a great deal of his supporters.
Thus, over the past few months, Biden used several strategies to avoid answering the big question.
He started by insulting the American people by saying that didn’t deserve to know his answer until after the election.
After this blew up in his face, he changed tactics and promised the people an answer before election day.
Well, now the day has come for him to fulfill said proclamation.
Amy Coney Barrett has been officially confirmed to the Supreme Court.
And the Democrats are nowhere to be seen.
Instead of fulfilling their declaration – which would have cost Joe Biden even more supporters – they are using a new strategy to disrupt the Supreme Court from the inside out.
On Monday, Biden told reporters in Chester, Pennsylvania that he plans to make a bipartisan commission to study reforms to the judiciary.
This commission would report to him within 180 days of his taking the office in January.
This is a far cry from the immediate action he declared way back when Amy Coney Barrett was nominated.
When reporters asked if he planned on changing the term limits of Supreme Court Justices, Biden once again turned flaky, not wishing to upset the apple cart.
He replied that he was against term limits, but open to moving judges to a different court:
“No, no no no no. There is a question about whether or not — it’s a lifetime appointment. I’m not going to attempt to change that at all. There’s some literature, among constitutional scholars, about the possibility of going from one court to another court, not just always staying the whole time on the Supreme Court. But i have made no judgment, my word, my word is I have made no judgment, they’re just just a group of serious constitutional scholars, have a number of ideas how we should proceed from this point on. And that’s what we’re going to be doing. I’m going to give them 180 days, God willing, if I’m elected from the time I’m sworn in, to be able to make such a recommendation.”
The problem is that these two proposals are the same.
That is, if Biden institutes his plan to move justices “from one court to another,” he is in essence enacting a term limit.
These kinds of contradictions and skirting around the issue will not serve him well come election day.
