Saul Alinsky said “if you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive.” Joseph Goebbles said “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” That’s what Biden is doing here and he has only one source to back up his statements, his own ‘thinking:’
They are no long worried about, I think, about our economy being overwhelmed by Europe, writ large, the EU or China somehow swallowing up every bit of innovation that exists in the world, uh…
They are no longer, I think, worried about our, uh, our, our economy being overwhelmed by beyond our shores, but and,
I don’t think there is any more, there is no , there is very little doubt in any circles out there about uh, America’s ability, uh to be in a position to lead the world in the 21st Century, not only in terms of our foreign policy, or our incredible defense establishment, but economically. ~ Joe Biden

He apparently has not sat down for a chat with General Motors bond holders who lost everything they had invested in GM bonds, when their worth was dissolved and transferred to the United Auto Workers. Remember the long-held, family-owned GM dealerships, owned by Republicans, who were forced to shut their doors? How many of them have made a come back? My mother was a bondholder and she hasn’t made a comeback.
And he hasn’t chatted with those who lost their homes because of the corrupt and racist Democrat-controlled Community Reinvestment Act. Remember that ugly word, “subprime?” Most of the subprimes loans were government loans – 71% of them! To repeat, seventy-one percent of the bad loans were not made by Wall Street. Both sides of the aisle at fault for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? No. Taxpayers paid big time for enormous salaries for the inept and scandalous management of Fannie and Freddie – $92 MILLION in 2011 – long after homeowners lost homes they couldn’t afford in the first place, which then dominoed to the financial fall of the homeowners who could afford their homes, but lost all the equity in their property, because worthless homeowners with no equity, simply walked away. Apartment rentals are booming because families who did things the right way, and had equity, before they lost equity, still can’t get back into a house.
Tell a lie big enough, often enough, people will believe it. “If you push a negative hard enough, it will push through and become a positive. Doesn’t say much for We the People, does it? H/T CDN, Thanks to PoliNation for the graphic. Thanks to Janet Meyerhoff Blaze, my brilliant Facebook friend.
