The Biden Campaign has released its latest ad called “Build the Future.”

It is a collection of excerpts of some of the notable quotes from the 2020 Presumptive Democratic Nominee’s address in Philadelphia on June 2, 2020, where he denounced the divisiveness and fringe acts of Donald Trump and described how he would conduct himself as President and bring people together to build a better tomorrow.

The video has the Democratic Nominee narrating along with varying background images of protests by the White House, the former Vice President speaking, pictures of national monuments, images of Donald Trump, racist mobs with torches, and a smiling and optimistic Biden (unlike Trump) interacting with the people.

“The country is crying out for leadership. Leadership that can unite us. Leadership that brings us together.”

“I look at the Presidency as a very big job….And I won’t (get it right every time) either. But I promise you this. I won’t traffic in fear and division. I won’t fan the flames of hate. I seek to heal the racial wounds that have long plagued our country, not use them for political gain…I promise you this job is not about me. It’s about you. It’s about us. To build a better future. That’s what America does. We build the future….This is the United States of America. There’s never been anything we’ve been unable to do when we set our mind to do it and we’ve done it together.”

The ad very powerfully offers voters the contrast between the optimistic forward inclusive Biden and the pessimistic backward divisive Trump.

  1. I’ll vote for Joe Biden. I’d also vote for a chimpanzee if it were the Democratic challenger.

    But I’ll just be hanged if I will ever get behind the effort to turn the sow’s ear into a silk purse. I think the Democrats have made a bad choice. Again.

    Chris Hedges describes Biden quite well in his latest article on Scheerpost.

    Chris Hedges: The Treason of the Ruling Class

    June 2, 2020

    “The Democratic Party, in the midst of the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression, is trying to sell us a presidential nominee, Joe Biden, who was one of the principal architects of de-industrialization and responsible for the loss of hundreds of thousands of good, union jobs. Biden and Bill Clinton also destroyed our welfare program, where 70 percent of the recipients were children, and orchestrated the doubling of our prison population and the tripling and quadrupling of sentences.

    Biden, as Naomi Murakawa points out in “The First Civil Right: How Liberals Built Prison America,” was a driving force behind the notoriously harsh penalties in the Anti-Drug Abuse Acts of 1986 and 1988, and the three-strikes legislation in the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, which also provided funding for 100,000 new police officers and the aggressive prosecution of 60 new capital crimes. He sponsored legislation to dramatically curtail the ability of those in prison to appeal and led the passage of the Federal Death Penalty Act of 1994 and The Anti-Terrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996. He oversaw the militarization of the police and the massive expansion of death-eligible crimes, which he has repeatedly bragged about.”

    More to come…

    • Same article:

      “Biden was also at the forefront of the re-segregation of our public school system and has repeatedly called for cuts to Social Security. He was instrumental in the disastrous trade deals such as the North American free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and austerity programs as well as establishing the most pervasive system of mass government surveillance in human history.”

      “Biden, one of the most important architects behind the wars in the Middle East, where we have squandered upwards of $7 trillion and destroyed or extinguished the lives of millions of people, is personally responsible for far more suffering and death at home and abroad than Donald Trump.”

      • I am so glad you are on the good guy’s team Liza. I can see why Obama picked Biden for Vice President and so many people voted for him in the primaries.

      • To quote another Dem I wish would go away, “I feel your pain”.

        In a normal world I wouldn’t shake Biden’s hand, but in the nightmare that is 2020, I can’t wait to vote for him.

        Biden will be a one term POTUS, if he lasts that long. Let’s see who his VP is.

        • Thanks for feeling my pain.

          Yeah, Biden is too old for two terms if nothing else. He’s actually too old to be running this time.

          Sometimes I think the Democrats might have a strategy, perhaps a VP as the de facto president. But Biden’s huge ego would not tolerate that, he ain’t George Bush. He’s also not Lincoln, FDR, or Obama.

          • Since she’s not going to be President this time around I would love to see the Senator Professor as VP and exercise as much power as Darth Cheney did. She would at least use it for the good of the nation.

            I know her being VP is a reversal on my part but upon much reflection this seems to be the best possible outcome.

          • I haven’t got anything against Elizabeth Warren but never saw her as a strong candidate. And there are many black folks out there who believe they are owed VP, so she would not get their enthusiastic support.

            I don’t think Biden’s ego will tolerate the Bush/Cheney arrangement regardless of who is VP. He served the president as VP and I suspect that is what he envisions for his own administration. Assuming we have an election and he wins and there is a peaceful transfer of power.

        • Biden, like Obama before him, will have an opportunity to be another FDR. That is, if he doesn’t whiff it like Obama did (look forward not back, letting Wall Street of the hook for their financial collapse, etc.). Actions that may very well have helped pave the path to where we are today.

    • It’s interesting that Hedges gives Biden no credit at all for this time with Obama and that would be my one point of disagreement. However, when Biden was VP he was not in charge, it was not his agenda.

      We ignore history at our own peril.

      I have to vote for Biden and it is because I have no choice.

      But I am never going to kid myself about who I am voting for and what his legislative record says about him.

      We ignore history at our own peril.
