Vice President Joe Biden pumped up the crowd at the Democratic National Convention Thursday night, testifying to his observations of President Obama. Up close and personal.
The theme seems to be another redefining of the Democrat Party. It’s ‘values.’ They have values. And Republicans don’t? The challenge today is the economy and jobs. Not ‘values.’ Since they can not talk about the shape we’re in and how they’re going to fix it, they talk about ‘values.’
With that understood, let’s look at the ‘values’ of this president. According to Joe Biden tonight . . .
You never quit on America. And you deserve a President who will never quit on you. And one more thing that our opponents are dead wrong about: America is NOT in decline.
In September 2011, President Obama had a very different feeling about America and Americans. President Obama blamed the stagnant economy on the Arab Spring, Japan’s tsunami, and rich people. Then he finally came down, to YOU. Not himself or his policies. You! Where was Joe last September?
This is a great, great country that had gotten a little soft, and we didn’t have that same competitive edge that we needed over the last couple of decades. We need to get back on track.
