Repeat the Line…

 

Like me, my mother was a student of history, and gave me an appreciation of it.  She often told the story of how FDR’s enemies would never listen to a speech, they would wait for the transcript to come out, and evaluate it that way, because FDR was such a powerful speaker.

I feel the same way about Biden’s speeches for exactly the opposite reason: he could make a firefight with a battalion of Marines uninteresting.  So, it’s not surprising that I missed the Biden speech from the Reichstag the other night.  Oh, I know, it was supposedly in front of Freedom Hall in Philadelphia, but the fact is, it was stage-managed just like Hitler’s famous speech from the Reichstag.  The only difference: Hitler was a better, more powerful speaker with an equally evil mindset, and Biden couldn’t get me to follow him out of a burning building.

Numerous others have commented about the speech, making similar points.  I thought it interesting that, once again, he stuck his hand out to shake the hand of someone who wasn’t there.  Perhaps there is some alien presence there standing next to him armed with a cloaking device and invisible to the rest of us.  It’s as reasonable a hypothesis as the suggestion that there is nothing wrong with the “Dear Leader.”

When President Trump took office he made a point to be the president of the whole country.  He may have attacked Democrat ideas, but he did not personally attack Democrats unless they fired the first salvo.  He also kept that promise.  He went after prison reform and sentencing reform, even though his core base was not likely to be affected.  He increased employment across the board, benefitting people irrespective of their race, religion, color or political party.

Most importantly, he had core values from which he never departed.  He was against abortion, and he stuck with it.  He did not change his opinion to gain votes.  He did not claim to be something he was not.  He was who he was.

Biden, on the other hand, with a 50-year history in Washington, has changed positions like a parent changes a newborn’s diaper.  He was for the police before he was against them, and then, he was against them until it was time to be for them again.  The fact is, although claiming to be Catholic, he subscribes to none of the core values of the Catholic Church, or Christianity in general.  He gets his opinions the way he gets his oatmeal in the morning, served up in a bowl from a bunch of handlers who tell him what to think.  Now, if they could only tell him how to think!  There has never been a better example of a placeholder president than Biden: put it on the teleprompter and he will read it.  Repeat the line.

I believe in God.  I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son.

I know that what happens on this earth and in this country is not directly in my hands.  But as John Kennedy once said, “sometimes, on earth, God’s work must truly be our own.”  I do pray that in November, millions of Americans do the Lord’s work and vote so as to shut off the money supply for this Mendacity Presidency.

    Anthony L. DeWitt: because FDR was such a powerful speaker.

    Was he?  Or, did he just the first president to have wide-spread access to radio?

    That’s a valid question.  However Anthony is correct in that FDR’s “fireside chats” were listened to by just about anyone who had a radio.

    I’m certainly not a big fan of FDR’s politics (such as my parents were) but in a country reeling from the depression, his speeches might be termed as powerful.
