  1. I won’t be surprised if his opponents in the DEM primaries attack Biden’s duplicity on this matter. He will be on a debate stage with others who will “out abortion” him while pointing to his shameful flip flop.


    • Of course this will happen. But many of the candidates who oppose the Hyde Amendment are also on record in voting for every budget that includes the Hyde Amendment. Isn’t this a subtle endorsement?

  2. This isn’t a great look. Say something, get scolded by some people, then do a 180 the very next day. Repeat on multiple issues.
