Biden thanked the commender-in-chief and crushed the coward-in-chief in his speech at the 2020 Democratic National Convention:
Thank you, Mr. President [Obama]. You were a great president. A president our children could—and did—look up to. No one will say that about the current occupant of the office. What we know about this president is if he’s given four more years he will be what he’s been the last four years. A president who takes no responsibility, refuses to lead, blames others, cozies up to dictators, and fans the flames of hate and division. He will wake up every day believing the job is all about him. Never about you. Is that the America you want for you, your family, your children? I see a different America. One that is generous and strong. Selfless and humble. It’s an America we can rebuild together.
Truth be told, I had not been excited about the Biden candidacy. He has his share of flaws and gaffes. After hearing his personal story; however, I have changed my mind. Joe is kind, compassionate, and caring. Joe had been through pain and grief. He lost his first wife, his daughter, and his son. Joe understands the struggles. He goes out of his way to help Brayden Harrington, a thirteen-year-old boy, to overcome his stutter.
We need a president who has sympathy, decency, and generosity. We need a president who takes care of all the people, not just himself. We need a president who unites instead of divides us. In the past four days, look at the people he is surrounding himself with. The Biden administration will be filled with diverse, qualified, and competent members.
Truth be told, I had already made up my mind to vote for Joe. After tonight, I will be excited to be voting for him. He will save America from the pandemic and he will save our democracy from fascism. I urge you to vote for Joe as well.
