Joe Biden has a $700 billion plan to restore American manufacturing jobs that guarantees a future made in America by American workers. If this sounds familiar, it’s probably because Biden touted the same job creating boost and “buy American” requirements in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) stimulus package in February 2009. A classic example of big spending with little results.
Joe Biden is certainly a gaffe machine. He has even said so himself. It seems miraculous that a candidate as unskilled at communication could make it this far, and yet here he is. It is clear that the Democrats have become accustomed to explaining away the various and sundry blunders and boo-boos as Biden bungles his way across the campaign trail. It must get tiring.
Looking at recent election polls, it’s not hard to see why Joe Biden feels so confident that he’ll win the election this November. National polling data from almost every prominent outlet indicates that Biden is the candidate favored to win. The excitement of seeing himself in the lead, if only by a few points, seems to have gone straight to his head.
President Trump has been the toughest American leader when it comes to China in modern history. Has Biden forgotten President Trump’s aggressive – and successful – trade fight with China? Has his campaign decided to ignore President Trump’s sharp criticism (and tough actions) against the Chinese Communist Party once it was clear China’s leadership had lied to the world about COVID-19?
