    Default That time Biden called court-packing a 'bonehead idea'

    "court-packing" would mark a reversal of an opinion Biden expressed in 1983 while serving as a U.S. senator from Delaware. At the time, Biden spoke out against President Ronald Reagan’s bid to replace three members of the US Commission on Civil Rights.

    During a Senate Judiciary Committee, Biden likened Reagan’s effort to that of former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who launched an unsuccessful bid to add six justices to the Supreme Court in 1937.

    "President Roosevelt clearly had the right to send to the United States Senate and the United States Congress a proposal to pack the court. It was totally within his right to do that. He violated no law. He was legalistically, absolutely correct," Biden said at the time. "But it was a bonehead idea. It was a terrible, terrible mistake to make. And it put in question, if for an entire decade, the independence of the most significant body … in this country, the Supreme Court of the United States of America."

    That's not news to anyone, is it?

    Now, watch the JPP DEMOCRATS try to justify his flip-flop.

    I knew a JPP DEMOCRAT would try to justify old man Biden's flip-flop, and I was right.

    What "things have changed" that would justify old man Biden's flip-flop, racist?

    And he was voted down on that expansion


    That is what Biden is referring to


    The failure was foreseeable in Biden’s mind

    You are kidding, correct?

    Name a recognized politician and I’ll deliver a “he said ............. years ago,” and you had to go back over thirty years to find a Biden quote.

    And by the way, just to straight the record straight, Biden hasn’t flatly come out and says he wants to appoint additional Judges, rather, that he would appoint a bipartisan committee to examine the issue, which he did via EO

    Who cares what Biden says? he said he was a moderate during the campaign, now thinks he's FDR 2.0
    he's a useful idiot for the Progs -nothing more
    Legislation is unveilled -do you think he would sign it? in a heartbeat he would

    It gave fodder to his detractors


    He clearly said it was perfectly legal to do huh


    Your shuts packed the courts


    Even lied and pretended Obama couldnt appoint a scotus member in his lat year


    Then did the opposite for Donnie the orange

    One of the few times I agree with you. Neither side has any interest in cooperating with the other. It has gotten worse. Actually makes me appreciate Clinton as much as I didn’t care for him on a personal level.

    That was before Republicans refused to do their job. You owe us two. The other two we'll take because we think you suck.

    Next?
