Former Vice President Joe Biden said he’d lead the country out of what he called a “season of darkness” and vowed to “draw on the best” of what America has to offer as he accepted the Democratic presidential nomination on Thursday night, setting up a general election battle with President Trump in November.
In his speech, Biden sought to cast himself as a leader who would unite the country.
“The current president has cloaked American anger for far too long. Too much anger, too much division. Here and now I give you my word — if you entrust me with the presidency, I’ll draw on the best of us, not the worst,” Biden said. “I’ll draw on the light, not the darkness. It’s time for us, for we the people to come together, and make no mistake, we can and will overcome this season of darkness in America. We’ll choose hope over fear, facts over fiction, fairness over privilege.”
Because of the coronavirus, Biden spoke from the mostly empty Chase Center in front of about two dozen reporters. He stood at a lectern emblazoned with “D20” in front of 16 American flags.
“I’m a proud Democrat, and I’ll be proud to carry our banner into the general election,” he said. “So it’s with great humility and a proud honor that I accept this nomination for president of the United States of America.”
For Biden, becoming the Democratic nominee is the culmination of a decades-long political career that has taken him from the Senate to the White House, as vice president under former President Obama.
Biden’s path to the Democratic nomination was also defined by personal tragedy, including the loss of his first wife and young daughter to a car crash in the early 1970s and the death of his son Beau Biden, who passed away from brain cancer in 2015.
Biden prepared for his address Thursday with family, longtime advisers including chief strategist Mike Donilon, speechwriters Vinay Reddy and Carlyn Reichel, and even presidential historian Jon Meacham, who recently penned the book “The Soul of America” and also had a speaking role at the convention.
Biden was introduced by his children Ashley and Hunter Biden, and a video of his late son Beau Biden introducing his father at the 2012 Democratic convention.
The campaign also played a new video touting Biden’s past efforts to reach across the aisle and work with Republicans. The video told the story about how as vice president Biden worked with Republican lawmakers on an economic rescue package following the 2008 financial crisis.
Y’know, it was fitting that Hunter Biden and his Sister, Ashley introduced their father last night.
Hunter Biden was the point of the spear in a Foreign Policy scandal which is just a small part of what will go down as the most corrupt Presidential Administration in history, making the Warren G. Harding Teapot Dome Scandal pale in comparison.
All of this boggles the mind. Think about it:
The Clinton Foundation Pay-for-Play
The Bidens’ misuse of the power of the Vice-President for personal gain
President Barack Hussein Obama’s $150 billion bribe of the murderous Mullahs of Iran which included hosting Radical Islamists like the late (Thank God) Gen. Quassem Soleimani at the White House
The trading of Muslim Terrorists for the traitorous Bowe Bergdahl
And, of course “Spygate”, the Steele Dossier, and the unmasking of Gen. Flynn
This whole continuous attack on President Trump…the Special Counsel’s “Russian Collusion” investigation and the hurried Democratic Sham Impeachment are all part of a strategy to cover up the out-of-control corruption, both foreign and domestic, which took place during the Obama Administration with the knowledge and consent of President Barack Hussein Obama, himself.
That would certainly explain the Democrats’ over-the-top reaction to losing the 2016 Presidential Election and their vicious rhetoric and unconstitutional political actions and schemes since.
When Obama and Biden left office, Joe gave an “exit interview” to the Los Angeles Times.
He said his party failed to connect with working-class, largely white voters, and warned that “a bit of elitism” has “crept in” to party thinking.
He recalled watching a Trump rally in Pennsylvania near where he grew up. “They’re all the people I grew up with,” he said. “They’re their kids. And they’re not racist. They’re not sexist. But we didn’t talk to them.”
The Democrats still are not talking to us.
They continue to talk at us.
They do not cherish or respect average Americans.
Remember how refreshing Donald J. Trump’s speech was when he accepted the nomination as the Presidential Candidate of the Republican Party?
What a contrast to what we had heard for 7 and one-half long years from the former occupier of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.
No racially-divisive rhetoric, no allusions to the Marxism Axioms revolving around Class Warfare, no self-deification, such as
This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.
By the way, how did that “Hope and Change” work out for ya?
But, I digress…
Instead, we heard from a man who genuinely LOVED America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes.
And, therein lies the secret of Donald J. Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton on November 8th, 2016.
It was a direct “repudiation” of Obama and his Presidency.
What Trump did, with his refusal earlier in the campaign to “act more presidential”, was to implement a strategy.
Trump has always been a “people person”.
That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.
As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.
“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.
He knew that the only was to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.
The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.
Trump continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living here in the part of America, which the Modern Democratic Party refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.
The Democrats, including Presidential Candidate Joe Biden, did not say a thing about the special interest groups whom they support, like BLM and Antifa during their Bore-a-thon this week.
The violent anti-Americanism being displayed by the riots happening in our major cities is not only condoned by he Far Left Democratic Party…it is encouraged.
Joe Biden, in his diminished state, will not do a darn thing about it.
His handlers will not let him.
We MUST reelect President Donald J. Trump.
America’s future depends on it.
Until He Comes,
