President Biden addressed Congress for the first time Wednesday night in a speech before a sparse, socially distanced audience in the House Chamber — and declared that “America is on the move again.” “I stand here tonight, one day shy of the 100th day of my administration,” Biden said near the start of remarks that lasted 1 hour, 5 minutes. It was a deceptive boring sleep fest.
“One hundred days since I took the oath of office—lifted my hand off our family Bible—and inherited a nation in crisis. The worst pandemic in a century. The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. The worst attack on our democracy since the Civil War.” Pearl Harbor, WWI and WWII and 9/11 did not count.
“Now—after just 100 days—I can report to the nation: America is on the move again. Turning peril into possibility. Crisis into opportunity. Setback into strength.” After proclaiming that, “There is no quit in America,” Biden quickly took a partisan shot at his Republican predecessor, former President Donald Trump, and hailed his fellow Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). “One hundred days ago, America’s house was on fire. We had to act,” he said. “And thanks to the extraordinary leadership of Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Schumer – and with the overwhelming support of the American people – Democrats, Independents, and Republicans – we did act.” Total garbage and lies.
