Biden Condemns Personal Attacks In Politics

In a recent interview on “60 Minutes,” President Biden said that politics has become “all about personal attacks rather than doing what is best for the country.

Almost immediately after making that comment, Biden attacked his predecessor, Donald Trump saying, “I think it’s fair to say that we’ve not had a president like the last president, who has made all of it so personal…You need to vote to literally save democracy again. Trump and the extreme MAGA Republicans have made their choice to go backwards, full of anger, violence, hate and division, but we’ve chosen a different path — forward.”

One of the major talking points of democrats leading into the midterm elections is that republicans are a threat to democracy. Just in the past two months, President Biden attacked Trump as a threat to democracy to ABC News, condemned “threats” to the FBI for raiding Trump’s Mar-a-Lago residence as “semi-facism,” and then said on 60 Minutes that “you need to vote to save democracy again.”

Rather than putting forth policies that could get inflation under control or focusing attention on the southern border, democrats continually talk about “saving democracy” by voting against republicans.

Republicans, on the other hand, have put forth their “Commitment To America” plan that focuses on the policies and laws they would pass if the GOP gains control of the house and senate.

Joe Biden ran on a platform of unifying the nation. NPR quotes Biden as saying, “I pledged to be a president who seeks not to divide but unify. I know speaking of unity can sound to some like a foolish fantasy these days. We will be a nation of unity, of hope, of optimism, not a nation of anger, violence, hatred and division.”

The title of that NPR article, “Biden’s Pledge To Unify The Nation Is Falling Flat” shows why many voters believe his words on 60 Minutes were hollow.

The President complains about “personal attacks” in politics in one sentence and then attacks his primary political foe in the next. He speaks of unifying the nation on the campaign trail and then in two years in office he has yet to gain any semblance of bipartisanship in most of his policies.
