When Joe Biden is in the White House, we’ll finally return to some normalcy

The Trump nightmare is nearly over. And when Joe Biden is in the White House, we’ll finally have a president who:

Joe Biden
  • respects people of color;
  • respects women;
  • respects the LGBTQ community;
  • will work to get the pandemic under control;
  • reads his high-security daily presidential daily brief;
  • reads;
  • believes his own national security officials over Vladimir Putin;
  • cares that our adversary has put bounties on the heads of our soldiers;
  • understands that a child’s full stomach is more important than a full arena at a campaign rally;
  • tells the truth;
  • believes in DREAMERS;
  • understands that many immigrants come here to escape brutality in their own countries and want to make better lives for their families;
  • will be inclusive enough to make his Cabinet look like America;
  • hasn’t been sued for not renting apartments to Blacks;
  • cares about global warming;
  • will not insult our allies;
  • will build up NATO and not tear it down;
  • won’t call people names;
  • won’t cheat on his wife;
  • won’t pay off porn stars to buy their silence about having an affair with him;
  • won’t insult foreign leaders;
  • believes in science;
  • has empathy for those who have lost loved ones;
  • won’t have an attorney general who acts like his private attorney;
  • has an education secretary who cares more about public schools than private schools;
  • tells the truth about his weight;
  • can pronounce Thailand;
  • honors an American hero like John Lewis and doesn’t whine about him not attending his inauguration and state-of-the-union addresses;
  • admits when he’s wrong;
  • takes responsibility for something, or anything;
  • understands how to work with Congress;
  • understands how Congress works;
  • understands the Constitution;
  • has read the Constitution;
  • wants everyone to vote;
  • won’t let his cronies off the hook, especially when they have pleaded guilty to crimes;
  • won’t stoke violence against Asians by calling the Coronavirus the “China virus;”
  • won’t have secret meetings and phone calls with Vladimir Putin;
  • won’t do things that will get him impeached;
  • isn’t a sore winner and won’t keep criticizing a former opponent, as Trump does with Hillary Clinton;
  • won’t only care about his base but about all Americans;
  • won’t demand blind loyalty from his party and staff;
  • won’t practice nepotism;
  • won’t be a Twitter addict;
  • understands the first amendment and will work with the media to get his message out;
  • And won’t constantly insult reporters.

It’ll be nice to finally have a president like Joe Biden.

I am a retired journalist with nearly 30 years in the field, during which time I was a reporter and held numerous editor positions at local newspapers and a number of magazines. After I retired, I was a sub in my local school district, then did PR for that district. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in journalism, and as for my politics, that's simple: I'm a liberal Democrat. I'm married, and my wife recently retired after 25 years as a teacher. We have one daughter, who has earned her PhD and works at a UC. Through this blog, I hope to pass on some interesting thoughts and ideas, entertain with some lighthearted posts and generally quell my pandemic-induced boredom.
