Skip to comments.We Elected Biden to Be Better Than This

In 2020, America elected Joe Biden to be not-Trump—a role for which he seemed well-suited. In 2016, the country voted for burn-it-all-down upheaval. Trump was the tribune of those who felt betrayed and misled and mistreated. Four chaotic years later, alarmed voters fled into the arms of an aging former vice-president and senator—a man they had twice rejected as a presidential contender—who seemed the personification of the steady hand.
No one expected Biden to be transformational or extraordinary, but we did need him to be the anti-Trump in the most important ways. We needed him to be sober and responsible, to play by the rules, and to uphold the primacy of law and procedure. And he delivered.
But the revelation that, like Trump, Biden mishandled classified documents, including storing them in his garage next to his Corvette, drags us back to precisely the world in which Trump is most comfortable. Like all reprobates, Trump’s default justification when caught out is “everybody does it.”
The great loss here is not that this makes it more challenging to bring criminal charges against Trump for his contempt of the law regarding classified materials, the tragedy is that this is a victory for the kind of cynicism that Trump has popularized.
The man who was dismayed by the spectacle of classified documents splayed out on the floor of Mar-a-Lago has been transformed into the tetchy pol explaining that documents locked next to a Corvette were hardly “sitting out on the street.” That is demoralizing for those who believe that Biden’s chief accomplishment–and purpose–as president has been to restore a modicum of trust to a nation that has been sunk in suspicion and bitterness for too long. Being not-Trump demands better.

When you start a story off with a lie...
No, Mona Charen, you and the other neoconservatives “elected” Joe Biden. Now, you can have him.

It’s amazing to me that the credible pedophile rumors, the credible money laundering / bribery rumors, getting the ukraine prosecutor investigating his son fired (on tape), etc. had zero traction in the media, but now this story of all stories seems to be getting a small amount of traction.
you nailed it.
Our government has been captured by usurpers.
They are slowly but surely getting rid of the old man since he has served his purpose.
He fooled the heck out of you, didn’t he? LOL There were 76 million of us who didn’t buy his line of BS.
Biden elected himself, with help from his fellow Democrat criminals.
Biden was never “elected”.
No barf alert????
I did not help him get 'elected'.
Neither did I expect him to be any better than this.
They have to wait 6 more days, then they can install Kamalaladingdong and have her in place to do their bidding for ten years.
The Deep State put Brandon into office and everybody knows it.
Mona is a dumb a$$.
Mona the moron starts off with a lie and then lies throughout her “article”. His election was a lie, his life is a lie, his family is a lie, and his fellow liars lie on his behalf. No character = black hole.
