Joe Biden has completely backtracked on the promises he made during the campaign.
No one expected this radicalism from him.
Joe Biden went out in public and destroyed Democrats with a single speech.
When Joe Biden was on the campaign trail he promised to be a moderate who would unite America.
If Biden was smart that’s how he’d be governing the nation as a moderate, but the man is clearly in a state of cognitive decline and has trouble stringing together a coherent sentence.
Instead, Biden delivered an address to Congress filled with controversial and costly plans.
“100 days since I took the oath of office—lifted my hand off our family Bible—and inherited a nation in crisis,” Biden claimed in prepared remarks. “The worst pandemic in a century. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.”
Biden also is pushing for changes that will make policing harder in America.
“My fellow Americans, we have to come together to rebuild trust between law enforcement and the people they serve. To root out systemic racism in our criminal justice system and enact police reform in George Floyd’s name that passed the House already.” Biden said.
He also wants to expand American public education and push for four more years of free public education.
“Twelve years is no longer enough today to compete with the rest of the world in the 21st century. That’s why my American Families Plan guarantees four additional years of public education for every person in America, starting as early as we can,” said Biden in his speech.
These extreme policies are going to make it an uphill battle in the midterms.
“After this Biden speech that charts the course for Democrats, I’d be blown away if 2022 wasn’t a bloodbath for Democrats. This could be a historically high backlash,” Josh Holmes, the former Chief of Staff and campaign manager to Mitch McConnell, tweeted.
Even the most moderate Republicans weren’t impressed.
“Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a key GOP swing vote, says of Biden’s speech: ‘I was not overly inspired.’ She also said that there was too much spending, and of pushing such massive proposals: ‘I think it makes it very difficult for it to be truly bipartisan,” CNN’s Chief Congressional Correspondent Manu Raju wrote on Twitter.
The fact is that most Americans aren’t interested in the overthrow of the American system and that’s exactly what the Democrats are trying to achieve.
Even on left-leaning outlets that streamed the speech, like USA Today, NBC News, CBS News, CNBC News, and CNN, Biden’s speech received more “thumbs down” reactions than “thumbs up” reactions.
The American people are not on his side.
