What is wrong with Joe Biden?
During the CNN town hall event he did this week, he was asked if he views China as an opponent and he refused, opting instead to call them a competitor.
Joe Biden has been harder on President Trump than he is willing to be on China, even after they caused the Coronavirus crisis that sent our economy into a tailspin for months, a tragedy we’re still recovering from.

Watch: Joe Biden Refuses To Call China An Opponent
At a CNN town hall on Thursday night, moderator Anderson Cooper spent the evening throwing batting practice to Joe Biden. After most questions from the friendly crowd, Cooper would swoop in with some very easy question, clearly lined up for a slam-dunk answer. But when the subject of China arose, something strange happened. Biden did not give the answer that Cooper was clearly fishing for.
Watch what happens when Biden is asked if he considers China “an opponent.”…
China is not our competitor. The lady in your bridge club is your competitor, that guy at work who keeps getting promotions is your competitor. Canada, now there is a classic “competitor.” China is not; it is much more than that.
What is really exposed here is that Joe Biden still prefers the post-Cold War neoliberal position that if we just engage more economically with the communists they will naturally liberalize. It is a policy of abject failure, but one Biden is willing to double down on.

Of course, the craziest thing about this is that just last February, Biden said it was crazy to think of China as competition. Remember?

Biden just seems to say whatever he thinks will please the person in front of him at any given time.
