“Speaks Without Notes”; “Has Passion And Joy In Campaigning”; “Speaks His Mind”—Traits Of Donald Trump AND Joe Biden!

It has been pointed out that billionaire Donald Trump “speaks without notes”; “has passion and joy in campaigning”; “speaks his mind”, all traits that most politicians, including Presidential candidates, often do not have.

Well, there is someone else who has the same traits that Trump has, but also has tons of REAL government experience; a record of REAL accomplishments; a true compassion for those NOT wealthy; a sincerity, authenticity, and genuine nature rarely seen in politicians; a person with not a mean bone in  his body; a person who would “give the shirt off his back”; a true man of the people, who has managed to serve longer than any political leader in public office in the entire history of the nation; and has NOT enriched himself in the manner that most politicians do!

In these other traits mentioned in the above paragraph, Donald Trump is entirely different, the diametric opposite of this other person who shares the traits in the first paragraph.

Who am I talking about?  Vice President and former Delaware Senator Joe Biden!

It can be argued that Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton cannot compete in the traits that Donald Trump and Joe Biden share.  Bernie Sanders  may share the traits in the first paragraph, but his connection to the “dirty” word “Socialism” creates many potential complications were Sanders to end up as the Democratic nominee for President, a real “long shot”!

A debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden would be the debate of the century, as Joe Biden would combat the demagoguery of Trump with a strong, rational, but fiery and emotional attack on “Trumpism”.  Biden has already proved how he can make “mince meat” of Paul Ryan and Sarah Palin in Vice Presidential debates.  He proved to be the best debater in the Presidential primaries of 2008, but of course could not overcome the star power of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

But now, coming off the successful and significant Vice Presidency of Joe Biden, he would have the best opportunity to overcome the phenomenon of Donald Trump, and institutionalize the Obama Presidency, and keep the virtues of the Great Society of Lyndon B. Johnson and the New Deal of Franklin D. Roosevelt!

    This is a very interesting blog. Though I may not agree with everything, it is interesting nonetheless. I sense an abandonment of Hillary on behalf of Democrats. Am I correct? As for Bernie Sanders and socialism, given that Debbie Wasserman Schultz couldn’t seem to find any difference between the Democrat party and socialism, I was wondering if the Professor could clarify this issue? Personally I think that in America, the parties are just vehicles of certain ideologies, principles and movements, thus I would like to know what is the ideology of the Democrat party?

    Thanks, Ariel.

    The Democrats have been the party to adopt “socialistic” ideas, such as Social Security, Medicare, Civil Rights, etc.

    The Democratic Party is a party that is strongly progressive-liberal, with the term progressive more in vogue now after years of liberal being more in vogue.

    A Socialist of Bernie Sanders’ model is more like the social democratic parties of Western European nations, more to the left than most Democrats, but able to work with them.

    The main point is that Socialism of the Sanders variety is NOT dangerous, unAmerican, and radical. It is not out to promote loss of civil liberties and one party government, as Communist countries in the past and those today espouse.

    If anything, Socialism has led liberals and progressives into major reforms, such as the New Deal of FDR and the Great Society of LBJ.
