When it comes to leadership (especially in politics), it is easy to talk the talk. But walking the walk is another story entirely.
It has been seven days since George Floyd’s murder. In that short period of time, Americans of all creeds, nationalities and beliefs have come together to protest he senseless slaughter of Americans of color. Unfortunately, some of the rallies and marches devolved into riots and destruction.
In Washington D.C., as the rioting got closer to the gates of the White House, you know who was shepherded to an underground bunker for his own safety. As of this morning, he has yet to return from the bunker. But yet, he still makes his usual outrageous statements via Twitter and calls some Governors weak for not taking military style action on the protesters.
On the other side, Joe Biden appeared in public and spoke to his constituents. Touring the local community, he stood with the marchers and with the business owners whose property has been damaged.
And if, racial unrest was not enough, we are still in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The question that every American has to ask is, who do we want as President? Do we want someone who puts their money where their mouth is, or do we want someone who walks the walk, but is unable to talk the talk?
It seems like an easy decision to me.
