Title: How would you classify Biden's picks so far?
Post by: CountValentine on November 23, 2020, 09:08:50 PM
Socialist, far left, left, middle or something else.

With my limited research, I'll say left.

Center-left. Any more right would be a betrayal of his voters.

They are Washington establishment (aka swamp), which was well expected, but he did seem to do a good job of choosing candidates with little scandal.

Janet Yellen is just what we need now, 'Quantitative easing' & bank regulation.

In the same class as AOC and the squad?

Close. But smarter, with more political finesse. AOC and the squad are Radical Left. He's just far left. On the issues he's been appointed to, he's terrible.

Close.
Come on. The gap between John Kerry & AOC is larger than the gap between John Kerry & Donald Trump.

Wrong. John Kerry & AOC are very close on the nanny state (and taking away individual liberties). DJT doesn't really care about that. How in the world do you find JK closer to DJT than to AOC?

John Kerry and Donald Trump both believe in Capitalism. Cortez calls herself a Socialist.
John Kerry and Donald Trump both oppose BDS. Cortez supports BDS and likens it to anti-Hitler movements.
John Kerry supports a Balanced Budget, attempting to eliminate the deficit. Cortez cites Modern Monetary Theory as a justification for higher deficits to finance her agenda, including $2.5T to finance her Green New Deal


Kerry & Cortez have very little in common unless your world outlook is predicated upon Obama-Bad-Trump-Good.

You conveniently ignored what I wrote about the Nanny State vs Individual Liberties. Kerry's appointment is ALL about the Nanny State and against individual liberties.

That's for the simple reason it was so unintelligible that I had no idea what you mean.

Kerry and Trump both received over 48% of the national vote and are by definition centrist. Cortez is a far left fringe figure.

Kerry wasn’t picked to balance the budget, he was picked to head Climate. His beliefs on climate are quite similar to AOC. Makes zero difference now what his beliefs on BDS & budget are.

Do you seriously believe Kerry supports Cortez's plan to spend $25T to convert all US energy to renewable sources?

Here's a link to Donald Trump's White House boasting of his environmental policies, including renewable energy:

And you chose the one issue (deficits) that Trump agrees with AOC on?

Look at my post, I cited more than one issue. And again, Cortez is way more radical than Trump on deficit.

You're a Platinum guy, not a gold bug! And when did I credit Trump with anything other than superb judicial nominations. (Though in fairness he probably deserves credit for removing regulations).

You and I are both on record numerous times saying that there is very little an administration can do to influence the economy other than get out of the way.
