Chairman Joe Biden began a Democratic National Committee speech with a teachers’ union on Friday with revealing comments.

Pointing to a member of the crowd at the National Education Association, he said: ‘You have to say hello to me. We go back a long way. She was 12 years old, I was 30.

The audience laughed before saying: ‘This woman helped me do a lot of things.’

Later in the comments, he said: ‘I want to say this from the bottom of my heart. Those of you who know me, nobody ever doubts what I mean, the problem is that sometimes I say everything I mean.

It was the start of the speech in Washington DC, where he attacked MAGA Republicans and called GOP leader Kevin McCarthy’s “Engage with America” ​​policy plan “weak.”

The president also promised to veto a Republican abortion ban if it reached his desk, saying the midterms are a choice between “hope, unity, optimism” and “division, fear, darkness.”

He welcomed gasoline prices down $1.30 a gallon and resumed his attacks on the use of assault weapons.

What in God’s name do you need an assault weapon for? It’s an assault weapon designed to kill people, to defend America, to defend the people.’

“After opposing and obstructing everything we tried to do to stop progress for the past two years, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy went to Pennsylvania and revealed what he calls a “Commitment to America.” Biden said. “That’s a thin set of policy goals with a limited amount of detail that he says Republicans are going to pursue if they regain control of Congress.”

“Over the course of almost an hour, here are some of the things we didn’t hear,” Biden continued. We did not hear him mention the right to choose. We don’t hear him mention Medicare. We didn’t hear him mention Social Security.

Biden also mocked McCarthy for suggesting he would “restore faith in elections.”

With a straight face, Kevin McCarthy says MAGA Republicans are going to restore faith in our elections. As we say in my faith: “Bless me father because I have sinned,” he said to the crowd.

What McCarthy talked about, Biden said, was preserving constitutional liberty.

‘That sounds great. I am also in favor of doing that, we all are,” said the president. But he looks at what they have actually done.

‘The MAGA Republicans just cheered and embraced the first Supreme Court decision in our entire history, the first in our entire history, that simply didn’t fail to preserve a constitutional liberty, it actually took away a fundamental right that had been granted by the same court to so many Americans: the constitutional right to choose,” Biden said.

Later in the comments, he said: 'I want to say this from the bottom of my heart.  Those of you who know me, nobody ever doubts what I mean, the problem is that sometimes I say everything I mean.

Republicans of all persuasions have embraced the Dobbs decision, which overturned the landmark Roe v. Wade in 1973 and returned abortion laws to the states.

There is some debate among Republicans, especially after GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham introduced a nationwide 15-week ban bill, about whether to try to ban abortion at the federal level or keep it at the state level.

“If they win Congress, I will veto it,” Biden said of Graham’s abortion ban bill.

McCarthy’s Pledge to America mentions preserving the rights of the unborn, but during his appearance with other Republican lawmakers in Monongahela, they did not put their position on abortion front and center.

Instead, McCarthy promised that the first bill to pass a House Republican majority would be to “repeal 87,000 IRS agents,” a figure Republicans took from a Treasury Department assessment of how many IRS employees could be hired using the allocation of $80 billion in the Inflation Reduction Act. , to stir up opposition to the bill.

“And finally, with all seriousness, Kevin McCarthy says MAGA Republicans will restore faith in our elections,” Biden continued. ‘As we say in my faith: “Bless me father because I have sinned”. Restore? Restore faith in our choices? said the president laughing.

“The MAGA Republicans refused to accept the results of the 2020 election,” he added.

Biden also hinted that the MAGA brand, aligned with former President Donald Trump, was not strong in the general election.
