(FiveNation.com)- One of the most obvious things that was left out of the recently-completed Democratic National Convention was candidate Joe Biden’s policies and agenda.
According to one prominent Republican, there is an obvious reason for this. Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey who is an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump, said Biden purposefully held back on revealing his “left-wing liberal agenda.”
Last Friday, Christie said:
“You didn’t hear any specifics last night from Joe Biden. The reason for that is because his specifics would scare the bejesus out of Americans and he knows that. It’s a crazy left-wing liberal agenda that he has been captive of now, and he gave into it in order to get the nomination, and he will pursue it if he is elected.”
During his acceptance speech, Biden said he would unite America, which has been torn apart by economic upheaval and the coronavirus pandemic, as well as racial inequality and partisan divides.
As part of his speech, Biden said:
“Here and now I give you my word, if you entrust me with the presidency, I will draw on the best of us not the worst. I’ll be an ally of the light, not our darkness. And make no mistake, united we can and will overcome this season of darkness in America.”
In response, Trump criticized Biden, saying he was making promises he wouldn’t be able to keep. Trump also said Biden was “a pawn of the radical leftists.”
Following Biden’s speech, Trump tweeted:
“In 47 years, Joe did none of the things of which he now speaks. He will never change, just words!”
Christie said he would advise Trump to look to the future when making his acceptance speech at this week’s Republican National Convention. He said he must address the “specifics of what he wants to do for the next four years.”
“And that would force Joe Biden to lay out his specifics. America has been in support of what Donald Trump wants to do much more than what Joe Biden, AOC and Elizabeth Warren want to do.”
Biden has been relatively quiet about what his plans are, if he were elected as president. Instead, he and many Democrats have decided to focus on their hatred for Trump and his administration. They apparently are banking on voters deciding that Biden is the “lesser of two evils,” rather than trying to convince them that Biden and vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris are actually good candidates.
Speculation is that Biden’s agenda could include some very progressive policies. After his top competitor, Senator Bernie Sanders, halted his campaign in the spring, Biden joined forces with the socialist to create policy advisory teams. Then, he chose Harris — who is looked at as more of a progressive candidate — to be his running mate.
This could mean some policies that are pretty progressive, and could be damaging to the country as a whole. One of the most infamous policies that could come about is the Medicare for All plan that was Sanders’ calling card.
