You won’t hear this from the mainstream media, but there’s a battle going on right now among Democrats. Not a huge surprise, right? Every time we get a look at the inner workings of this party, all we see is chaos.
Joe Biden worked overtime during the election to cater to progressives. He didn’t seem to care all that much about appealing to moderates. Although he claimed he wanted to unite all of America, his positions would only alienate most of it.
But it seems like he couldn’t hold onto progressives for very long either. Because leaked audio reveals the far-left are probably already ticked off at Sleepy Joe.
From Daily Caller:
President-elect Joe Biden opposes using executive authority on a laundry list of policy items which his “progressive friends” are pressuring him to act on, leaked audio shows…
“I am not going to violate the Constitution, he continued. “Executive authority that my progressive friends talk about is way beyond the bound, and as one of you said, maybe it was you, Reverend Al, whether it’s far left or far, right, there is a Constitution.”
Joe Biden pledged to undo “every single damn thing” Trump has done. But he claimed he wasn’t going to use executive authority “where it’s a question.”
That probably outraged progressives who were hoping Biden would be a rubber stamp for their un-American agenda.
If Biden becomes president, he would have the authority to undo executive orders signed by Trump. That is, after all, something Trump did all the time to undo Obama’s orders.
But it seems Biden is drawing a line at things that might undermine the Constitution.
Oh, it probably has more to do with the fact that he knows trying to challenge the Constitution would only work against him.
It wouldn’t take much work by conservatives to challenge Biden’s executive orders in court. Biden is just biding his time, hoping he’ll get a Congress that can do the heavy lifting for him.
But don’t bank on these leaked tapes being gospel. Democrats are good at saying one thing and doing another.
Given enough pressure, Sleepy Joe will do anything the left tells him to do. Right now, he’s against violating the Constitution.
But give it time.
- Joe Biden outraged progressives after comments were leaked from a Zoom call.
- Biden claimed he would not violate the Constitution with executive orders.
- Progressives were hoping he’d push their agenda if he becomes president.
