On Thursday we had the opportunity to see the current elected leader of the Republican Party try to launch a vigorous debate with the elected leader of the Democratic Party.
First, as President Joe Biden prepared to launch the political campaign season of 2022, Representative Kevin McCarthy, leader of House Republicans, gave a prebuttal. He gave a surprisingly good speech.
Then, President Joe Biden gave an ugly speech. Whereas McCarthy had listed all the things the Democratic Party has done to create a great big mess, including that Party’s efforts to demonize Republicans, Biden continued to demonize Republicans.
Here is the C -SPAN version.
Listen to both speeches. Then consider. Are we are finally beginning to have an actual debate over the soul of our nation. Is the Republican Party finally willing to engage in the debate?
