• Well, Isn’t That Ducky: Biden Runs Down the Nation He Wants to Lead

    One of the week’s most popular …

    Surge Summary: A recent ad from the Biden campaign exposes an ugly element of the modern Democratic party: it’s a view that America, essentially, was never great and needs to be transformed into an altogether different nation. Only a few short years ago, a message such as that would have never even been considered as part of a major presidential campaign. Today, it is fundamental to the party of Joe Biden.

    Earlier this week, the Biden campaign released an ad on social media that wholly embraces the radical left’s disdain for our country.  In the ad, Biden says, “America was an idea, an idea.  ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident.’  We’ve never lived up to it.”

    Never lived up to it?

    What does Joe Biden think the Civil War was about?  What does he think World War II was about?  What does he think the civil rights movement was about?

    I guess he’s got a pretty low opinion of Barack Obama’s election and reelection, too.

    I disagreed vehemently with Barack Obama on virtually every public policy issue.  But like millions of Americans, I had high hopes for what his election represented in terms of racial reconciliation.

    For Joe Biden to dismiss that and all the tremendous progress this country has made is beyond insulting.  And it just shows how extreme today’s Democrat Party has become.

    No candidate seeking to lead this nation would have dreamed of running such an ad in previous presidential campaigns.

    But Biden and his party have rejected American exceptionalism.  They have embraced the left’s mantra that “America was never great” and that it must be “fundamentally transformed” into who knows what.

    As much as anything else before us, this is THE ISSUE of the campaign.

    As Vice President Mike Pence has put it, “The choice in this election is whether America remains America.”

    I believe it is central to why Donald Trump prevailed in 2016, and why I believe he must prevail this November.

    Please join me and Reverend Franklin Graham in a day of fasting and prayer this Sunday for our country.
