It’s not that Liberals/Democrats have no principles; it’s that they have made an art form out of the SELECTIVE application of those principles.
Biden is the ultimate ward-heeler politician. Everything he says, right or wrong, truth or lie, is said with apparent great conviction and empathy. He will say and do whatever it takes to gain and hold political power.
Eagleton was merely depressed, ‘Tard Joe is bat$hit insane.
