Democracy Now: The Case Against Joe Biden: Former VP’s Long Career Shows a Recurring Theme of “Appeasing the Right”

Joe Biden's primary tactic seems to be to "defeat" his enemies by giving them what they want or by adopting their platform (Like Obama did by adopting a right wing healthcare plan/idea as his own... which is why so many people are uninsured and the costs are so high).

Democracy Now: The Case Against Joe Biden: Former VP’s Long Career Shows a Recurring Theme of “Appeasing the Right” - Following his Super Tuesday wins, we look closely at the record of former Vice President Joe Biden, from his central role in supporting the Iraq War to expanding the so-called war on drugs. We speak with Branko Marcetic, the author of “Yesterday’s Man: The Case Against Joe Biden.” Biden’s approach to politics is based on “appeasing the right” and “taking the platform of his Republican opponent and trying to make it his own,” Marcetic says.

He did the same for the Iraq War by giving his vote to the GOP despite strong indications - such as information from intelligence agencies - that the Iraq war was based on lies. Ignoring intelligence is what  Trump does!

Democracy Now: “Worth the Price?” New Film Shows How Biden Played Leading Role in Push for U.S. to Invade Iraq

As Biden hopes for a comeback, a new short documentary sheds light on his extensive role in the Iraq War — an issue that has been raised repeatedly on the campaign trail. Biden has apologized for supporting the war, but the new film, directed by the Center for Economic and Policy Research’s Mark Weisbrot, exposes Biden’s central role in pushing for an Iraq invasion. It’s called “Worth the Price? Joe Biden and the Launch of the Iraq War.” The documentary is narrated by Danny Glover.
