Prof. Turley and Voters Unload On Biden For Not Answering Court Packing Question

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Charlotte, NC — As I reported yesterday, Joe Biden is refusing to answer the recurring court-packing question once again by doubling down.  But apparently Joe Biden is hoping that he can slip by without answering whether he wants to pack the Supreme Court and without having to provide a list of who his choices for the Supreme Court would be.

But liberal law professors and the voters are having none of the I’ll-answer-that-question-when-the-election-is-over excuses!

Joe Biden AGAIN refuses to say whether he supports packing the Supreme Court.”You’ll know my opinion on court packing when the election is over… The moment I answer that question, the headline in every one of your papers will be about that.” Give me a break.So bogus. pic.twitter.com/PQY80WEMyy

But while some in the media may be willing not to actually press him on the question, his refusal to answer is becoming an issue, and voters may be the ones to hold him to account on it.

Liberal law professor and former Trump defender before the House Judiciary Committee Jonathan Turley busted Biden for his refusal to answer.

Joe Biden just declared “You’ll know my opinion on court packing when the election is over.” So the Democratic presidential candidate is telling the voters that he will not tell them if he plans to destroy a core institution in our constitutional system… https://t.co/75a0eVkoix

this is why James Freeman Clarke said that “a politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.” Which is Biden thinking about in refusing to tell the voters whether he will pack the Supreme Court?

 

Here’s more from Professor Turley:

The refusal of Vice President Joe Biden to answer repeated questions about his position on the packing of the Supreme Court is deeply troubling. This is a proposal raised not by the Republicans but his own running mate Kamala Harris and leading Democrats. It would destroy the Supreme Court and voters should know if Biden would consider such an irresponsible act, particularly when he previously denounced it. The refusal to stand against the proposal is a fundamental failure of leadership. Rather than confront the most extreme elements of his party, Biden has chosen to remain silent on a major issue in this election. Frankly, that is not the Biden that many of us knew from his time in the Senate. He should take a stand against this pernicious idea and defend the institution, as he did in 2019.

But wait!  It gets worse!  Not only is he getting called out by liberals like Turley, but he’s also turning off voters in the process.

As famed pollster Frank Luntz explained, that was the number one problem that his voter focus group said at the Vice Presidential debate. Joe Biden and Kamala Harris (D-CA) were unwilling to answer a simple, incredibly important question.

This was the #1 complaint from my focus group during last night’s #VPDebate.The Biden-Harris campaign refuses to answer a simple question. https://t.co/sDYrf5UpFg

The focus group of voters had a few words about Kamala Harris and her evasion.

Frank Luntz focus group, asks for one word to describe Harris: “evasive…nervous…shifting blame…caring….snarky….too rehearsed….nervous….evasive….abrasive….unsteady….rigid….unpresidential”

The voters decided that Vice President Mike Pence won in part because of this kind of evasion.

This is such a slap in the face and a totally disrespectful reaction from a major party nominee!  If Biden is unwilling to give the voters the basic consideration of a response to such an important question after his side and his running mate has threatened to upend the Supreme Court in such a fashion, then frankly, why should any voter give him their vote?
