Voters Don’t Need to Know … Court Packing?

Voters don't need to know

Voters don’t need to know. That’s the Biden administration position. We’ll tell you what is important. And we’ll tell you what you need to know about what is important. This conversation is over… But the Supreme Court…

Joe Biden vehemently opposed packing the Supreme Court earlier in his career. At that point he was calling the action a “bonehead” idea. The earlier Biden says it would taint the integrity of the court. Today, he and running mate Harris refuse say where they stand. This is important because the group of Leftists he heads, Democrats in name only, are threatening to do exactly that.

So, does Biden lack the courage of his convictions? Does Biden actually not control the Party he claims to head? Is Biden not able to articulate why he holds whatever position he has on court packing? Or… is the ticket so arrogant they simply believe you don’t need to know where they intend to lead?

The interview

Biden said in a WTAE interview, “…Right now, my entire focus is seeing to it that the American people get a chance – the election has already started – to have their say on who the next Supreme Court justice is. And that’s what I’m focused on.”

This is a deflection not an answer. But it raises another question. So Joe, if people are to have their say presumably by this you mean you will make the nomination rather than Trump, right? So who exactly is on your list of potential nominees? Biden’s answer… crickets.

In the same interview Biden also said, “The Constitution says that the American people – I taught constitutional law for over 20 years – says the American people get an opportunity to choose who they want on the Supreme Court by who they pick as their senator and their president…”  Biden, did began teaching classes at Widener University Delaware Law School in 1991.

But, just for the record, the U.S. Constitution discusses the Supreme Court in Article III. And Article III says nothing about the people getting to choose who sits on it. In fact, originally it did not even say that 17th Amendment the public could choose their senators.  Before that point, 1913, state legislatures selected U.S. Senators. That was in 1913.

This tells us something about the value of Constitutional Law instruction at Widener University Delaware Law School as taught by Mr. Biden. It also tells us something about Biden and what his administration would be like. We’ll tell you what you need to know. It kind of makes you wonder if Shepard Smith will be his press secretary?
