I was watching Biden, have watched politics for years, never saw him be belligerent like he has been over the land three years, turned to my wife, talked to her about it, what she said makes the most sense I have heard to understand Biden, “He wants to be the Donald!”
It’s not that Biden wants to hold the same positions as Trump; instead, he has seen the populous president say what is on his mind, has no issue with going into the pit and fighting if needed, Biden seeing this is trying to emulate what Trump is doing, but he is failing rather miserably.
Trump is a New York City hustler. He has had to deal with a big city government for years, with construction workers, who many times can be very coarse and blunt themselves, this is the environment that Trump was created in, he wears it like a comfortable old jacket, it is now part of him.
Biden, seeing the success, wants to emulate this, but what he is doing is putting on a mask and a suit, yet he was not created in this, so instead of looking like a fighter, he is looking more like a senile angry old man. If you suddenly start threatening to take someone out back and slap them, yell at them to vote for Trump because they dare ask you a question, you are not like Trump; you are a bully, one that is upset that people dare question you on anything you stand for.
The most glaring example of this is when the man, just this week, asked Biden about his stance on the 2nd Amendment. He had a good reason to ask, Biden had just announced days before he was going to put Beto O’Rourke as his gun czar, this is the same Beto who, while campaigning, said, “Hell yes, we are going to take your AR-15, your AK-47!”
I hate to break it to you, Biden. Still, when you are interacting with a person like this, and there are millions of us, you are adding people to your campaign that have spoken about stripping away our civil rights under the 2nd Amendment, it should not be a surprise when people who hold our constitution dear are going to confront you on it.
Trying to go in and take automatic weapons, in the way O’Rourke described, would be a miscalculation of epic proportions. I think he actually believes people would be willing to submit, turn their weapons into the authorities, how clueless O’Rourke is. If this were ever attempted, many counties, as we have just witnessed with the 2nd Amendment sanctuary counties popping up all over the US in reaction to anti-2nd Amendment laws, this would explode, states would join in.
If authorities were ordered to go in to grab weapons, many would refuse, the ones that would follow such orders would be walking a perilous line, not to mention such an act could set off a civil war as people take up weapons to stop such an infringement.
But back to Biden.
Biden is trying to grab the admiration of many who like the fighting spirit of Trump, but this is what makes Trump, Trump. Biden, when he is trying to act in such a manner, is disingenuous, it comes off as contrived, or senile, neither is advantageous to him.
The best advice to Biden would be to stop this, stop with his trying to be what he is not, or maybe, as a conservative, keep it up, it will only weaken your run for president.
