As Twitchy reported, it seems like Never Trumpers like conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin are getting a little worried seeing their “moderate” Democratic candidate slipping in the polls while socialist Bernie Sanders continues to ride high.
That moderate candidate, Joe Biden, was in New Hampshire campaigning Monday and told a young boy that climate change is the biggest issue facing our country and even politely offered to talk with the boy more about it and maybe sniff his hair. All of the Dem candidates have said that climate change is our biggest issue, and Biden says it’s time we eliminated plastics.

Biden mentioned getting rid of plastic bags at grocery stores and going back to paper, but we think he was thinking bigger when he said “transition away from the use of plastics.”
This is not a moderate position and if any of the other candidates tagged as moderates in the run hold this point of view; they ain’t moderates. https://t.co/4B6XwDrzBP

Pivoting back to the middle for the general is going to be a heavy lift for whoever gets the Dem nomination.

There are no moderate Dems.
Zero. Zilch. None. Nada.

It's not only not moderate. It's insane.

Kids their age have absolutely no clue about the ramifications of such a policy…

Just like climate alarmist Greta Thunberg demanding at Davos that the world’s economic powers divest from fossil fuels immediately. How exactly is that going to work?
Dems have left "moderate" in the dust. The only way any are moderate is through their continuing use of Overton Window tactics to convince folks that anything slightly right of Bernie is "moderate". That's just crazy! @ScotsFyre @tomselliott

Watching Biden campaign makes me wonder if he's actually trying not to win.

It tells you two things.
1. Joe Biden is in Elizabeth Warren pander mode.
2. Joe Biden has no idea how much or how important plastics are to a modern society.

And look at all the people clapping. They have no idea what the result of no plastics would be.

Does he have any idea how many things have plastic in them in our everyday lives??

Not moderate, but increasingly mainstream for Democrats. Let me know when they realize that petroleum products aren't just plastic straws. They're saying no more smart phones and stretch pants.

Plastics do a lot for our longevity. Imagine a hospital without them. Also, they make electric cars possible, as well as numerous other products that aren’t one-time use.
— Rita McConnell (@52York) February 10, 2020
Plastics use in electric vehicles like Tesla is growling at nearly 40% a year

This not a rational position.

Not a new idea, and he hasn't had one in years.

Perhaps “we should be recycling plastics as much as possible” is a better way to phrase it? Thoughts?

That’s what someone you’d vote for president would have said — but he didn’t.
