FACTS

    Presidential candidate Joe Biden has joined with Sen. Bernie Sanders to form a task force in an effort to foster unity among the Democratic party. A necessary boost as Biden recently told voters they “aint black” if they vote for Trump.

    Biden said in a statement, “A united party is key to defeating Donald Trump this November and moving our country forward through an unprecedented crisis.” Sanders commended Biden for his willingness to work together and said, “The Democratic Party must think big, act boldly, and fight to change the direction of this country.”

    LEFT

    The Left is in support of the joint effort. After Sanders dropped out of the presidential race, some on the far Left decried Biden as their Democratic option, noting his seemingly moderate stance on many issues. But others have pointed out that he is “fairly flexible on policy — shifting his positions to whatever is in the mainstream of the Democratic Party at a given moment” and believe that he is “likely to be a fairly liberal president” if elected. This thought is supported by his appointal of prominent more radical liberal figures including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D) and Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D) to the committees. 

    RIGHT

    The Right believes radical leftist politicians are using Biden as their puppet to further their agenda. Fox News strategist noted, “They aren’t nominating a presidential candidate — they are choosing a guy they think can win who they can then steamroll into pushing their radical agenda. Biden’s campaign is sad on many fronts, but this might honestly be the saddest.” A columnist with The Washington Post noted his willingness to slide whichever way his party pushes, saying, “Genuine centrists should be concerned about this well-established pattern. If they back Biden, will they genuinely get someone committed to prudence and national unity? Or will they get someone whose overriding passion is to be acclaimed by his party no matter [what] he has to say to win the applause?”
