Sleepy Joe's Busy Day

 The one characteristic of 'Sleepy Joe' is that he is accomplishing a lot of good things.  Today was a particularly busy day for President Joseph Robinette Biden and VP Kamala Harris, as they traveled to Atlanta to address members of the Asian and Pacific Islander community and visited the CDC, taking time to meet with Stacey Abrams, the Atlanta mayor, and Senators Warnock and Ossoff.  When does Sleepy Joe even have time to sleep?

Introduced by a moving preamble by Vice President Harris, President Biden's speech was an appeal to the hearts and the minds of the American people.  The president decried the 'skyrocketing' number of attacks on Americans of Asian and Pacific Islander descent and stated that xenophobia and violence against the elderly and women have no place in the US.  Americans must stand together against hate.  The epidemic of gun violence must be addressed.  He then went on to praise the scientists of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and confirmed his administration's commitment to science, as embodied by the public servants at the CDC.  He called upon the public to continue to practice COVID-19 mitigation procedures.  The president also stated the importance of voter rights legislation, and committed to protecting voting procedures.

While President Biden doesn't deliver the oratorical heights of a Barack Obama, he speaks with conviction and emotion.  He reminds the American people that they have obligations to society, and he takes his obligation to the public seriously.  He really does come across as the right person for the right time, a hardworking, decent person who can rally the American people to work hard and be decent.  President Biden continues to exceed my expectations.

About the title... I decided to fully embrace the 'Sleepy Joe' moniker bestowed by the Former Guy.  Now that Joseph Robinette Biden is at the helm of state, everybody is sleeping better.

I couldn't agree more. I've read comments from so many people along the lines of "he was not my first choice", and I said that myself, but he is proving to be a better than expected very good choice.

I think he's a lot more liberal now that he was even during the Obama administration.

I don't sleep better knowing that a old, demented, racist, warmonger is the President and that a lying cop is the Vice President. 18 years ago today the US illegally invaded Iraq and sleepy Joe Biden was one of the biggest cheerleaders for a war that killed a million Iraqis and made a million more refugees. It was an invasion built on lies about WMD's and people like George Bush and Colin Powell knew that it was lies. And just like Vietnam (my war) no one was held accountable for the war crimes committed based on lies. Joe Biden was not held accountable for supporting the Iraq War and in fact he was rewarded for lying. And he is still lying by promising the American people $2000 Covid relief check and a $15 per hour minimum wage if you voted for him. I find Joe Biden and Kamala Harris just as repulsive as Donald Trump and Mike Pence. Our bipartisan Democratic and Republican government has impoverished, immiserated and killed American citizens during this pandemic in order to enrich their corporate donors and our capitalist overlords. This is America.

And thus, nobody ever needs to take anything you say seriously ever again.
