TALK & OPINIONS BY SILVIO CANTO JR.

We discuss politics, sports and a few extras!

And now Joe ‘de-Hydes’?

leave a comment »

We are watching a rather sad movie or the rewriting of Joe Biden’s resume.  Once upon a time, he said some interesting things about Anita Hill, immigration chaos, and late-term abortion.   

That was Joe BT or Joe Biden before Trump.   Now, it’s Joe AT — after Trump.   

Frankly, Joe BT was better.  At least, he was speaking from the heart.   Joe AT is just pandering to a party hijacked by the left.   (Let’s stop calling these people liberals, please)

The latest change is over the Hyde Amendment, as John McCormack wrote:   

In what may be his first major move to the left on policy as a 2020 presidential candidate, Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden has endorsed repealing the Hyde amendment, a measure that prohibits federal funding of abortion except in cases of rape, incest, or when the mother’s life is endangered.    

“It can’t stay,” Biden said of the Hyde amendment during an exchange with an ACLU activist earlier this month. The video of the exchange was posted by the ACLU on Twitter on May 8th but has drawn little attention since then (it was flagged by Washington Post reporter David Weigel on Sunday evening).

This is sick and it makes VP Biden look bad.  

First, it won’t work with the party’s crazy leftist base because they won’t believe the flip-flopping.

Second, it won’t work in the general election because he will look like a man who just reads polls.

Maybe VP Biden will win the nomination or win the presidency.  He may also melt when the activists start challenging his authenticity.

Stick to your principles Joe, or the Trump campaign will tear you up using your own words.

Out of touch Democrats need to look down under

leave a comment »

Over the weekend, a new round of experts got stung.  Down in Australia, the voters sent a message and you’d better believe that “climate change” was in the mix.

This is from Stuart Varney:

The candidate Opens a New Window.  pushing tax hikes was sure to win.

The media Opens a New Window.  and the elites backed him.

The polls all said he would come out on top. Even the exit polls said he would win.

But he didn’t. Bill Shorten, Labour Party leader, lost Australia’s general election. The pundits are in a state of shock!

Now we don’t spend much time on Australian politics, but Democrats here should be taking a long hard look at this one.

In Australia voters were not prepared to sacrifice in the name of climate change, and they didn’t want to risk their prosperity by taxing the rich!

To be fair, election results are always complicated but something happened down under and it was not give us more liberalism.

On Sunday night, I called an Australian friend who lives in the area and asked for his thoughts about the election.  He said two things:

Australians are fed with an ever bureaucratic government.  They want more and more taxes and give you less services.   As he said, we are not getting our money’s worth.

He also said that climate change is one of those theoretical topics that sounds good on paper but hard to explain to the businesses or even labor unions fearful of losing their livelihood.

Is there a message for Democrats?  Yes — talk to real people and listen to what they have to say.  Beware of experts who only talk to other experts.

Joe can’t move to the middle and keep the base

leave a comment »

According to the Atlantic, Mr. Biden wants a united front and to lower the party’s angry volume:

Biden is not getting into name-calling, a la President Trump. 

He’s not getting into Sanders-style proposals like Medicare for All. 

And he’s definitely not getting into crowd sizes. The roughly 6,000 people who stood in the sun waiting for him was less than a third of the crowd that showed up for Kamala Harris at her launch in Oakland in January; less than half the number Sanders drew for his first rally in Brooklyn in February; and a full 3,000 people behind the crowd who stood in a snowstorm to watch Amy Klobuchar give her kick-off speech in February. In the heart of Philadelphia, nearly half a century after he launched his national political career just down the highway in Wilmington, Delaware, Biden had roughly the same number of people who went to Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s kick-off rally in South Bend, Indiana, a month ago.

Maybe we can call it Biden’s version of a kinder and gentler liberalism.  Maybe  Biden thinks that he can bring out “the quiet Democrat” who is not watching Rachel Maddow or Chris Cuomo.  Maybe he has polling data that the party is not so far left as the other candidates think that it is.

Biden will face a very simple problem.  First, the base is all about hating President Trump.  They want to get President Trump at any cost, including turning the 2020 convention into a total circus.

Eventually, Biden will have to take a position on abortion, the border, and health care.  He can’t avoid specifics too much longer.

Finally, his good polls overlook the fact that most Democrats would prefer a so-called “progressive candidate”.  In other words, two out of three voters are not supporting Biden.

Enjoy it, Joe.  Yes, enjoy it because the base that hates President Trump is going to start hating you pretty soon.
