    It’s not a bad speech. But quite honestly: couldn’t the Democrats have fielded someone… a bit more sprightly? The guy looks like he’s on his last legs 😦

      There were at least 4 primary candidates I would have picked way before this guy. I hope Kamala gets to go after those criminals that have been grifting off and undermining our country these past four years.

      Rumor has it that they gave him some “speed” before his acceptance speech at the convention, which was pretty “sprightly”—-if so, pump him up! If it was good enough for bomber pilots in WWII and special forces troops today, it will be good for Joe.

      Biden wasn’t in my top three.

      If Biden wins I fully expect him, after three years in the White House, to resign the presidency to Harris. He’ll be 80 by then and he’s already stated that it’s time to hand the baton over to the younger generations.

    Trump today:
    https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/14/politics/donald-trump-wildfires-briefing-climate-change/index.html

    ‘President Donald Trump on Monday baselessly asserted that climate change is not playing a role in the catastrophic wildfires overtaking forests across the west, rebutting an official briefing him who pleaded for the President listen to the science.

    “I don’t think science knows, actually,” Trump said at a Monday briefing with officials in McClellan Park, California, with a laugh.

    He told Wade Crowfoot, secretary of California’s Natural Resources Agency: “It’ll start getting cooler. You just watch.”‘


  3. Biden’s speech ensures that climate will be a prominent presidential debate topic.

    • rhymeswithgoalie Says:

      Um, no it doesn’t. It’s whatever topics the hosting organization chooses. Important policy questions can get short shrift compared to rhetoric-heavy “gotcha” topics.

  4. Ron Benenati Says:

    Speeches are about appealing to different segments of the base for votes.
    Actual policy implemented tells the tale
