Joe Biden Desperately Pleads for Unity, but It’s Way too Late for That – RedState

Things are not going well for Joe Biden, and perhaps he’s starting to realize it?

Today, the president released a three-minute video that was played at the Democrat National Committee’s fall meeting. Six hours later, 627 viewers had already viewed the entire event via YouTube. It is evident that the Democratic side has a high energy level, but I digress.

Biden appealed to his party for unity, assuring that, if they all came together, 2022 could look much like 2020. The pitch was obviously meant to target Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema, both of which are looking to nuke the president’s “build back better” agenda.

Below are excerpts taken from The New York Post.

“My message is simple: we need to stay together, and bound by the values that we hold as a party,” Biden said in a three-minute pre-recorded address released Saturday at the Democratic National Committee’s fall meeting.

“Because here’s the deal: we won 2020 as a unified party,” Biden said. “And we look to 2022, as we do that, we need to stay unified.”

The problem for Biden, though, is that it’s way too late for this. Biden has been trying to browbeat hesitant Democrat members into submission, rather than planting the seeds for unity. He’s accused them of holding up progress and harming the country. He’s even excused targeted harassment in a bathroom toward Sinema as “part of the process.” Does he really think a pre-recorded message in which he mumbles some lines about unity is going to bring everyone together?

We are witnessing the lazy side of the president. Biden, for his whole five-decade tenure in Washington has always been someone who speaks but seldom does. Biden’s ascension, whatever it was, to the presidency only increased the doubts about his abilities. Joe Biden is not being heard in Congress. He’s seen as an inspirational figure and a motivator. Even his most adamant supporters simply tolerate him as the best they’ve got at the moment. To be it succinctly, Biden is no Barack Obama — no matter how much he pretends he is.

These messages don’t work. Sinema and Manchin, along with a group of moderates in the House, aren’t going to be swayed by platitudes about unity. Their concerns are real about reconciliation. This isn’t a game to them. For Biden, who hasn’t had a job outside of politics since he was in his 20s, everything is abstract, though. Biden rants in unison, with no care about why others in his party oppose his agenda.

“If we deliver today across the board,” Biden vowed, “50 years from now people are going to look back and say this was the period, this was the moment, America won the 21st century.”

And that’s really where things begin and end for Biden. He doesn’t care about the details, because to him, all of this “build back better” nonsense is simply about cosplaying as FDR. It’s about getting a statue on the Washington Mall somewhere and his name highlighted in the history books. He couldn’t care less if it saddles middle-class families with more inflation and a stagnant economy. After all, he’ll be long gone by the time most of the bill comes due for his reckless policies.

So, in short, all of the country has paid a huge price so that this nearly 80-year-old, frail old man can feel great about himself. His pleas for unity won’t be heard.
