On Sunday, there were nine days until the election, and Biden did not campaign at any events. Today (Monday), there are eight days until the election, and Biden is not campaigning at any events. Meanwhile, Trump draws large enthusiastic crowds wherever he goes. And he’s going all over the country.
Democrats appear to be even more concerned, however, by the Trump rallies occurring all over America, in which Trump is not even there. The boat parades, car parades, and marches through towns while enthusiastic Trump voters wave flags and demonstrate how excited they are to vote for their candidate. And then there’s, um, you know, Joe Biden.
The Arizona Independent News Network had a story last week about two parades – one for Trump and one for Biden, on the same day in Arizona (see picture above). The Trump parade involved well over 10,000 cars (some say 20,000 cars) and stretched out over 30 miles of interstate (some say closer to 90 miles of interstate). Waving flags, honking horns, and playing music. The Biden parade, according to the news story, was a little different:
Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes arranged for a mariachi band to serenade a parade of 6 voters as they drop off their ballots at an early voting center.
Nicole Pastuer, spokesperson for the Biden campaign, said of the parade in a tweet that she had “never seen people so excited—so proud and emotional—to vote.”
This is a representative Tweet from Nicole Pasteur. She is the Arizona Press Secretary for ‘Biden for President.” With Democrat voters spontaneously demonstrating how thrilled they are with their candidate, her job must be pretty easy. This is what Democrat enthusiasm looks like!
Such disparities cannot be escaping notice by Democrats. Surely they’ve picked up on a bit of a difference in enthusiasm, here.
One way to win an election is to nominate an impressive leader who exudes competence, with a powerful personality and an inspiring message of hope, promising better days to come.
The Democrats are, apparently, attempting to win this election with some other strategy.
I think I know what that strategy is. And I think we’ll find out for sure the day after the election.
But I think they have to get the election over with before they can attempt to win the presidency. I could be wrong, of course. Perhaps the riots, legal challenges, and voter fraud that I am anticipating won’t happen.
It just seems to me that Democrats aren’t terribly interested in the actual election. Joe Biden certainly doesn’t seem to be.
So I think their real effort to win the presidency comes afterwards.
We’ll see. In nine days.Published in
