It’s been clear from the get-go, but it is coming into sharper focus the closer we get to the end of this election season.
It is that Joe Biden speaks in mind-boggling (at times) detail about the policies he wants to enact; meanwhile Donald Trump speaks in insulting and ignorant generalities.
Biden took a question from a young African-American man last night about what he would do to improve the lot of African-Americans, urging Biden to go beyond the “You ain’t black” quip that has gotten into trouble with black voters. Biden’s answer included a litany of policy plans that at times suggested that Biden was talking past the sale. The young man, though, seemed satisfied with Biden’s long-winded soliloquy.
Trump took a question about what plans he had in mind to replace the Affordable Care Act. He offered nothing. No plan. No alternative. No improvement or reform of what he keeps referring to as “Obamacare.”
They spoke to voters at competing town hall gatherings. Biden was in Philadelphia; Trump spoke in Miami.
I sense we’ll hear even more of this startling contrast in the men’s command — or lack of command — of the issues of the day.
Invective and innuendo are how Trump rolls. Biden speaks to us in detail about what he intends to do if he’s elected president of the United States.
I have heard enough of Trump’s trash talk. I want to hear more from Joe Biden.
