If there is one thing that Americans have lost over the last four years, it is that we have lost a sense of decency.
On Thursday, in lieu of the cancelled Presidential debate, each candidate held a televised town Hall. You know who’s town hall aired on NBC with Savannah Guthrie as moderator. Vice President Joe Biden’s town hall aired on ABC with George Stephanopoulos moderating.
I didn’t watch you know who’s town hall. But I watched enough clips to know that it was not worth watching. Instead of talking about what he would do for the American people if he is re-elected, he once again claimed the spotlight and whined.
One of the questions that was asked of the Vice President, was his stance on the rights of the LGBTQ community. His response is as follows:
This is the type of person I want to be President. Is he perfect? No. But at the very least, he understands that the role of a public servant is to serve the community. It is not intended to be used for personal gain or to fill an emotional hole created by difficult parent.
If I were to list the reasons to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, the number one reason is a vote for decency. If we are to move forward as a nation, we need a President and an administration that represents that sense of decency. That administration will be led by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
I think it’s pretty safe to say that there is no perfect presidential administration. There will be mistakes made along the way. There will be members of the public and members of the political class who disagree with the President and his/her people. However, there is something to be said for respecting the rule of law and respecting the established political norms.
I think it is also pretty safe to say that you know who’s administration respects neither.
Earlier this week, the rotating door of White House staff turned once more. Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that she was resigning from her post as Press Secretary. This woman has made my skin crawl for as long as she has held the position. She has continually lied, belittled the press, fudged the facts and like many in the administration, has forgotten that it is the voters who are responsible for keeping her employed.
If this was not enough, you know who was interviewed by George Stephanopoulos. During the interview, he stated the following: “I don’t — there’s nothing wrong with listening. If somebody called from a country, Norway, ‘We have information on your opponent,’ oh, I think I’d want to hear it.”
After the interview, he then walked back his statement, which shocks nobody. But what bothers me is that he would gladly receive information, about whomever is his opponent in 2020. From my perspective, this speaks to his lack of morals, ethics and the fact that his needs are more important than the needs of the country.
Just another reason why he is ill-equipped to run this country.
This hobby blog is dedicated to movie nerdom, nostalgia, and the occasional escape. In the late 90s, I worked at Blockbuster Video where they let me take home two free movies a day. I caught up on the classics and wrote movie reviews for Denver 'burbs newspapers and magazines. Today, I continue to revisit the old and discover the new on the screen. Comments and dialogue are highly encouraged. This year, I'm excited to collaborate with other writers via SLICETHELIFE in which we will share our movie genre favorites in our 2021 Movie Draft!
