And so does every Democrat. January 6th is kryptonite to Republicans. Use it.
Everyday! The media will not cover it. It is up to each one of us.
Bravo Mr. President! Talk about throwing serious shade! I loved everything minute of this speech. It was the perfect time to call out Trump's lies and the total corruption of the Republican party, all while most major networks (even FOX) covered it. Democrats must speak this truth as many of these corrupt Republicans are running for office in 2022. They must not win. And we must pressure our leaders even more to pass voting rights legislation. The president's and VP's speeches prove how critical this is.
Furthermore, the domestic terrorists involved at every level of this treasonous activity must be treated the same way as the Oklahoma City Bomber and the Boston Marathon Bombers were, and Biden and every single elected Democrat needs to say that part out loud, too. .
January 6th was politicized the minute Republicans started embracing Trump again following the January 6th insurrection.
I'm sorry Mike, but I have to disagree. The President's speech was awesome and powerful, but kryptonite to Republicans? I seriously doubt his speech changed a single mind in their Trumpian world. I understand the call to get out and vote, but what good will that do when Republican state governments around the country can now legally change the outcome of an election that they disagree with? The only thing that is kryptonite to the Republican party is passage of the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. Republicans know this and are doing everything in their power to prevent its passage. If voting rights for ALL U.S. citizens is not protected by the federal government, then our democracy is effectively over and done.
We need both Biden, and the vastly under-utilized HARRIS, to be out there as often as possible (no tie votes in the Senate) making these speeches, on this topic, on the voting rights bills, on build-back-better, etc. This is the only way voters in 22 and 24 will realize they MUST come out and sustain the Dems, who are at least trying to do things. Pound this stuff into people, especially people of color, who we hear are disheartened.
