It’s tiring to listen to even the politicians you like tell lies, misspeak and exaggerate. They all do it. They all develop their Santa Claus wish list material and things their constituents want to hear. They spout questionable statistics, and make fantastic promises that may or may not be kept.
Trump doesn’t say anything important, or at least helpful. And to the strains of overly dramatic music, Joe Biden promises the world, tries to inspire, promises to fix everything. His plans and their enactment depend on, among other things, a cooperative Congress and his capacity for staying healthy and energized and functional into his 80s.
Much of Biden’s appeal, and the main reason he may prevail, is because he seems to be a decent guy, while his opponent seems intent on being a perennial candidate for Worst Person In The World.
