Biden is a 'Moderate' on Crime Issues? | Stop the Drug War (DRCNet)
Topic: Society 12:21 pm EDT, Sep  5, 2008

Joe Biden is not a "moderate" when it comes to crime issues. His hard-line authoritarian record speaks for itself, runs out of breath, and then speaks for itself some more....

I can only assume this profound mischaracterization of Biden's record was arrived at through the tired assumption that democrats are "soft" on crime, republicans are "tough," and therefore "moderates" are democrats who support harsh laws. Joe Biden is exactly the reason such stereotypes should be avoided by responsible journalists.

My thoughts no the subject are a bit awkward, but I believe Biden's record is meaningless at this point. It feels to me that he is just being used as a pawn for the Obama campaign to cash in on the 'hard on crime' / 'hard on _____' crowd. Thoughts?

P.S. Basically I think i just described modern day politics.
