Default Is Joe Biden really a moderate?

During the 2020 presidential campaign, Joe Biden presented himself as "a return to normalcy"--in other words, a much-needed moderate--and that was really easy to get away with, given the rough-and-tumble nature of Donald Trump.

But has his presidency really followed a "moderate" path--or a liberal one?

Well, let's see:

He has indicated empathy for those fleeing Central America and Mexico, and therefore done nothing to seal our southern border. (His subordinate, Kamala Harris, has even gone so far as to blame some "root causes"--as though this means we should do nothing to protect our border.)

He wishes to make nice to Iran, in the (entirely fatuous) hope that it will reciprocate.

His 3.5 trillion spending plan (he euphemistically calls it an "investment") is "bold," he declares. (This is liberal-speak for gargantuan.)

It will "transform" America--more so than anything since LBJ's Great Society, half a century ago. (This recalls the words of Barack Obama--then his mentor--who desired a "fundamental transformation" of America.)

Even NPR--hardly a right-wing mouthpiece--says that it will result in a "sweeping restructuring of the U.S. economy."

He has reduced drilling for oil (and fracking) in the US, while begging Middle Eastern countries to increase their oil production. (This is a nod to the Green Energy folks in his own party.)

One has to wonder: Is this really the agenda of a moderate?

I don’t think he ever claimed to be a moderate. The “return to normalcy” was a call to end the circus of the Trump years. It had nothing to do with policy.

There is nothing moderate or normal about the Presidency of Joe Brain damage. From the beginning of his candidacy as a Greek mask for the radical Leftist puppet masters frustrated that Obama didn’t turn out to be gangster enough to finish the fundamental transformation Biden is a carefully stage managed creation too impaired to lead but equipped with all the hatred and demogoguery of a 50 year Washington political hack.

Attacking Trump doesn't reduce the reality of Biden the corrupt third world dictator who actively hates the country that he supposedly represents.

He's a puppet for a cabal of leftists including Obama; Jaret; Soros and the Chinese Communist Party and a host of other commie elements too numerous to mention here. He is senile and incapable of an independent thought. Even before he lost his mind he was a terrible politician who was in political office for many years with no accomplishments other than creating his own wealth with political payoffs

Liberals think he is too conservative.
He gets along with Mitch still, so maybe it's the people squawking who are to the extremes.

The proof is in the pudding, as the old saying goes.

It is simply not determined by what liberals "think."

nor what conservatives "think" then, seeing as how there is no longer a middle of the road voter [this part is a lie].

Actually, it is leftists who think he is too conservative. Most of the liberals are asking him to come in out of left field.

the liberals of the democrat party, but call it what you will if it makes you happy,
at any rate he's doing a good job with his strategy of moderating both US POLITICAL extremes so he can get things accomplished to move the country to some semblance of normalcy.
