The American people elected Joe Biden in 2020 on the promise that he would unite our nation and bring all of us together. President Biden’s speech in Philadelphia, despite the high-sounding rhetoric and the dramatic red backdrop at Independence Hall, did anything but that.
According to President Biden, the Republican Party is dominated by violent extremists who do not support the Constitution and do not care about the rule of law. Despite the White House’s claim that the speech was one of optimism, that’s pretty inflammatory language to describe the nearly 75 million people who voted Republican in 2020.
It's clear that the purpose of this speech was to sow division and distract citizens from the real problems that everyday Americans are facing, such as high prices at the grocery store and gas pump, an increasingly dangerous southern border, concerns about what our children are learning in school, and fears about public safety.
Democrats see their low poll numbers and are panicking. Instead of competing with their Republican opponents on the basis of ideas and sound policy, they are using divisive rhetoric and name-calling.
These tactics will not succeed. In fact, Republicans and those who support them will work even harder to ensure that the Republicans are successful in the midterm elections.
