As we get closer and closer to election day, the true colors of the progressives in the party are starting to show.
The expectations among the uber-progressives in the party are being made clear, with both Bernie Sanders now applying pressure to Joe Biden.
He made his stance very clear recently in terms of the direction of this administration.
Oddly enough, it is Elizabeth Warren that probably cost Bernie Sanders the nomination in this election.
While the “moderates” in the party cleared out for Joe Biden before Super Tuesday, Warren decided to stay in.
There is no doubt that her still being on the ballot on Super Tuesday cost Bernie Sanders several states and prevented Sanders from being able to deliver a knockout blow to Joe Biden.
This led to Joe Biden having to sell out to Warren and Sanders as the election progressed in order to secure their voters for his camp.
That sell-out, of course, has come at a price, with Sanders and Warren now openly calling in their markers and issuing a veiled threat to Biden.
Calling in the Markers
Bernie Sanders is not necessarily talking about Joe Biden packing his administration with uber-progressives, but he does want the progressive agenda put in place by Joe Biden.
Sanders stated, “It seems to me pretty clear that progressive views need to be expressed within a Biden administration.
“It would be, for example, enormously insulting if Biden put together a ‘team of rivals’ — and there’s some discussion that that’s what he intends to do — which might include Republicans and conservative Democrats — but which ignored the progressive community. I think that would be very, very unfortunate.”
Hold the Phone
The dilemma for Joe Biden is that the turning of the House makes it pretty clear that is NOT the agenda the American people want to see.
This is a point that was made by the anti-Trump Lincoln project, supposed conservatives that were hoping to oust Trump and his loyalists to reset the government.
This was a big gamble in that they openly supported putting Joe Biden in office and removing Republican senators, giving complete control to Democrats.
Jennifer Horn, a co-founder of the anti-Trump Lincoln Project, stated, “Choosing Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders, who represent the far left — and in Bernie’s case an openly socialist view of the world — is not the leadership that the American people just voted for.
“I think Joe Biden understands that.”
Sounds to me like the Lincoln Project is starting to get a bit nervous about their little experiment.
Horn better hope she is right because if she is wrong, she and her buddies over at LP have put the entire future of this country in jeopardy.
