I’ve seen a post circulating on Facebook that sort of flew up my nose a little bit. The post basically asks ‘why aren’t Biden supporters raving on about his accomplishments?’ and displays a bullet list of so-called ‘failings’.
Don’t ask me why, but for some silly reason I felt compelled to briefly respond (well … sorta briefly. More like ‘on-the-fly briefly’ than ‘short briefly’). For whatever good it does …
I’m not trying to pick fights here. I’m more interested in intelligent discussion. This country has problems, and (IMO) we – all of us – myself included – are spending more energy bickering and whining than we are addressing those problems. We’re better than this. We should be collaborating, not competing.
So here goes:
In closing: Joe Biden was not my first choice. In fact, I was not entirely thrilled that he got the nomination in the first place. I don’t think he’ll be as aggressive as he needs to be, nor do I think his position on some issues is the correct one.
However, I do believe that he’ll be aggressive enough to repair a lot of the damage that has been done, and I am certain that his heart is in the right place. I am confident that he will do the best job that he can. I’m perfectly willing to ‘back-burner’ some issues to deal with them later in order to solve some important ones now. It is all about priorities, and many of Biden’s priorities are spot on. I’m fine with that.
I am happy to have a President who behaves like an adult, with the ability to think clearly and listen to and learn from his advisors. It is a refreshing change.
