Biden Makes It Official…But Forgets to Mention One Thing
Joe Biden has officially announced his decision to seek reelection, with the launch of a new video outlining some of the key issues that his campaign will focus on. But there seems to be a big problem. There is something that is missing from the video.
Nowhere in this announcement video does Biden say anything about naming any specific achievements from his first term. This is just another attempt by the Democrats to play into the fears of voters. Once again, he’s trying to give you something to vote AGAINST, rather than something to vote FOR.
Biden is also deeply concerned with what he calls the “MAGA extremists” who continue to supposedly pose a threat to the stability and wellbeing of the nation. But he doesn’t say how. It’s just gaslighting as usual. He believes that defeating these people is essential for the protection of America’s very soul, and will make this a top priority throughout his reelection campaign.
Despite the lack of specific achievements mentioned in the video, it is clear that Biden is committed to making substantial changes to improve the lives of Americans across the country. With his focus on issues such as personal freedom and the battle against extremism, there is no doubt that he will remain a key figure in American politics for many years to come.
Here’s a transcript of his video:
Personal freedom is fundamental to who we are as Americans.
“There’s nothing more important. Nothing more sacred.”
That’s been the work of my first term: to fight for our democracy.
“This shouldn’t be a red or blue issue.”
To protect our rights — to make sure that everyone in this country is treated equally, and that everyone is given a fair shot at making it.
But you know, around the country, MAGA extremists are lining up to take on those bedrock freedoms. Cutting Social Security that you’ve paid for your entire life while cutting taxes for the very wealthy.
(There is no Republican plan to cut Social Security and Republicans have said it over and over and over again. This even came up during Biden’s SOTU address in which he got called out on it as soon as the words left his mouth. However, Biden advocated doing so for many years.)
Dictating what health care decisions women can make. Banning books, and telling people who they can love, all while making it more difficult for you to be able to vote.
[This repeats several debunked claims. Republicans are not “banning books” — though Democrats are moving to restrict free speech and freedom of the press — and there is no evidence that new voter integrity laws restrict the ability to vote. In fact, laws like voter ID are correlated with higher turnout, including among minorities.]
When I ran for President four years ago, I said we were in a “battle for the soul of America.” And we still are.
The questions we’re facing is whether in the years ahead, we have more freedom or less freedom. More rights or fewer. I know what I want the answer to be, and I think you do, too. This is not a time to be complacent.
That’s why I’m running for reelection. Becasue I know America. I know we’re good and decent people. I know we’re still a country that believes in honesty and respect and treating each other with dignity. That we’re a nation where we give hate no safe harbor.
We believe that everyone is equal, that everyone should be given a fair shot to succeed in this country.
“Thank you for choosing us.”
Every generation of Americans has faced a moment when they have to defend democracy.
Stand up for our personal freedom. Stand up for the right to vote and our civil rights.
And this is our moment.
“We, the people, will not be silenced.”
“Well, God love ya.”

Let’s finish this job. I know we can. Because this is the United States of America. And there’s nothing, simply nothing we can’t do if we do it together.
Every generation has a moment where they have had to stand up for democracy. To stand up for their fundamental freedoms. I believe this is ours.
