When you decide to run for president, there are certain truths that you need to accept. You’ll be one part of three branches that keep the government operating properly – and to ensure that the powers never sit with just one party.
There are the legislative, executive, and judicial branches. President Joe Biden is currently in the executive branch. Yet, he has decided to completely diss the judicial, which includes the Supreme Court.
Since no one else is calling him out on it, Mitch McConnell has decided to do so. After all, we need to see more dignity being shown by the President of the United States.
Biden promised unity when he got into office. Everything that he has done shows that he has no desire to make good on that promise. In many instances, it’s as if he goes out of his way to create even more upset within the country.
During a press conference in Madrid, Biden explained that “America is better positioned to lead the world than we ever have been. But one thing that has been destabilizing is the outrageous behavior of the Supreme Court of United States in overruling not only Roe v. Wade but essentially challenging the right to privacy.”
Yikes. There are so many issues with this statement.
First, Biden has given himself quite the pat on the back by saying that America is better positioned to lead the world than ever. That’s basically like he’s saying that he’s the best president the country has ever seen – and that is clearly not the case.
Second, he’s dismissing the ruling of SCOTUS. The Supreme Court plays a valuable part in the government – and when the President disrespects the decisions, he throws the entire government into question.
McConnell made a warning about how such comments are “dangerous” just hours after Biden’s conference.
“Attacking a core American institution like the Supreme Court from the world stage is below the dignity of the President. Beyond that, President Biden’s attacks on the Court are unmerited and dangerous.”
The Senate Republican Leader is spot-on with his comments, too. Biden has no right to attack SCOTUS, especially on a world stage. More importantly, when he attacks the Court, he attacks the entire democracy that the country is built on.
McConnell went on to say that he’s upset because abortion policy has moved to the states, where elected representatives from the people will suddenly have the say. “That does not destabilize democracy, it affirms it.”
This is another way for Biden to point the finger and escape blame for what is really going on. There’s unprecedented inflation, and the entire administration has done nothing to improve the economy.
Rather than face criticism on the economy, Biden figures he’ll just get everyone riled up over abortion policy. That doesn’t help anything, though. It simply creates more division within the country – something that doesn’t need to happen.
Each and every member of SCOTUS was chosen by a president. Some by Bush, some by Clinton, some by Obama, and some by Trump. Every member of SCOTUS is an impartial judge who looks at the Constitution and makes a ruling based on the interpretation of the law, not a particular political line. And every member of SCOTUS was confirmed by the entirety of the Senate.
We must remember that the executive and legislative branches have a hand in composing the judicial branch. It’s what helps to maintain checks and balances.
And yet, in a single comment, Biden has shown a considerable amount of disrespect to the entire system all because he doesn’t like how the nine impartial judges ruled on abortion.
