On Sunday, March 15, 2020, 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden promised to name a woman as his vice-presidential running mate.
In addition, the former vice president promised to appoint the first black woman to the Supreme Court if he’s elected. He also indicated that he is no longer against the the Hyde Amendment, which bans the federal funding of abortion except in cases of rape, incest, or when the mother’s life is in danger.
“If I’m elected president my cabinet, my administration, will look like the country,” Biden remarked. “And I commit that I will in fact appoint a – I’d pick a woman to be vice president. There are a number of women who are qualified to be president tomorrow. I would pick a woman to be my vice president.”
Patrick Goodenough of CNS News pointed out that Biden never said the word “abortion,” as he was rationalizing his decision to oppose the Hyde Amendment. Biden said he is now against the Hyde Amendment because, “if we’re going to have public funding for all healthcare along the line, there is no way you could allow for there to be a requirement that you have Hyde Amendment – a woman who doesn’t have the money could not have coverage under healthcare.”
Biden said he had changed his views on the Hyde Amendment “a while ago.” He also added that as president he would immediately push Congress to pass legislation to make Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court decision which legalized abortion, into federal law. During his debate with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders he boasted about having a 100 percent rating from NARAL Pro-Choice America.
“I am so disappointed in Joe Biden,” tweeted Democrats for Life of America executive director Kristen Day, who is part of a faction of the Democratic Party that has been ignored by the cultural Left.
“He, like so many others, has sold out to the abortion lobby,” Day said. “Apologizing for a record of opposing federal funds to end the lives of pre-born children is shameful. Taxpayer funding of abortion is wrong.”
.In his 2008 memoir “Promises to Keep: On Life and Politics,” Biden said he was “personally opposed to abortion,” but believes that he doesn’t have the right to force “something I accept as a matter of faith” on others.
Despite the media’s labeling of Biden as a “moderate”, he is clearly joining the radical Left on the issue.
Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
