About That Whole 'Joe Biden Is a Decent Guy' Myth...

Ever since former Joe Biden Senate staffer Tara Reade alleged in March that he sexually assaulted her in 1993, there has been a steady stream of the “decent guy” talking point coming from his supporters and some in the media, as though Biden allegedly being a “decent guy” is “evidence” that he would never force his attentions on an unwilling woman.

And as we draw ever closer to Election Day, the “decent guy” argument is being amplified by those who find President Trump’s aggressive approach to combating thinly sourced negative news stories about him unbefitting of a POTUS – because apparently Republicans are just supposed to sit back and take it when the media and Democrats (but I repeat myself) engage in smear tactics against their political opposition.

Here are just a few examples of the “decent guy” talking point in action in recent days:

But Biden’s storied 47-year political career provides us with numerous examples of how the guy Trump refers to as “Sleepy Joe” is anything but the “decent guy” he’s being portrayed as by Democrats, the mainstream press, and even his own campaign. Among them:

Let’s also not forget the story of how Biden used to swim naked in pools while in front of female Secret Service agents.

Even if Biden using his political office to enhance his wealth and that of his family could be excused away (it can’t), the fact that he’s apparently a dirty old man simply can’t be.

It’s not really a good idea for Democrats and the MSM to make this race about “character” and “decency,” because Joe Biden has more going against him on that front that he does for him. And the more the left tries to make “decency” an issue in this campaign, the more their candidate is going to be hammered on the deep character flaws the MSM seems determined to hide.
