MSNBCâ€™s Melber: Biden Increasingly Liberal â€” He Sounds Like â€˜The New Bernieâ€™
Pam Key 6 Apr 2021
MSNBC anchor Ari Melber said Tuesday on â€œThe Beatâ€ that President Joe Biden was governing to the left and â€œat times, can sound a bit likeâ€ progressive Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
Melber said, â€œJoe Biden has begun his presidency on a more liberal footing than the last two Democratic presidents, which makes this the most progressive start to any presidency in the past 40 years. Biden is now pushing for a cumulative $4 trillion in total spending in his first 100 days. Getting a liberal boost from the news Senate Democrats can bypass McConnellâ€™s obstruction for party-line votes on the new infrastructure bill. Liberals are encouraged. Conservatives are aghast. Many Democrats who know Joe Biden are struck by how heâ€™s evolving in this role and in this tough time for the nation, a contrast to a Senate career where he was, by his own words, a centrist or even conservative Democrat on many different issues.â€
He continued, â€œBiden is governing from the core and base of the Democratic Party, the progressive base, pushing the liberal plans I just mentioned, spending that outstrips anything from the early days of the Obama-Biden administration, higher taxes on the wealthy and on corporations. Joe Biden taking sides with labor more than he did in past decades, or then past Democratic presidents. Heâ€™s pushing the new multi-trillion plan with major planks for jobs, racial justice, and addressing climate change. Now whether itâ€™s correlation or causation, Biden at times can sound a bit like the new Bernie.â€
He added, â€œIs Biden simply revealing his own values now that he has this power? Or is he channeling Sanders?â€
I can't believe Biden's actions should shock anybody.
Not true. Liberals are laissez-faire and generally harmless if annoying. This guy is an authoritarian jerk, a relic of the early 20th century.
He's a leftist, not a liberal.The people running this country now are hard-core leftist fanatics, not liberals.I can't believe anyone should be shocked at this.
Just one example:
Biden will rewrite Trump's Title IX rules on sexual offenses in schools.Trump's rules codified presumption of innocence and the right for third parties (lawyers) to cross-examine plaintiffs.Biden w/eliminate both.
He Sounds Like â€˜The New Bernieâ€™...
ol' joe will "sound like" whatever his controllers tell him to sound like.
For that moment.
Until he forgets what he said...
To my surprise, Sloe Joe has lasted longer than I thought he would. I thought he'd step down after 3 months...he's made it past that goal post. What a disappointment, but perhaps the longer Kamel and her keepers are on the sidelines, the better.
He's reading what they put on the teleprompter, just like that terrorist from Kenya did.
And neither made any sense if the teleprompter was turned off or broken.
So who's been directing that marxist clown show since 2009?
