Joe Biden’s Democrat moderate credentials aren’t rock-solid. They’re situational or comparative more than solid. For instance, President Trump’s energy credentials are mostly mainstream. Joe Biden’s energy credentials, especially in places like Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan, would be seen as extremist.

At last week’s Democrat presidential debate, Biden was asked “Vice President Biden, I’d like to ask you. Three consecutive American presidents have enjoyed stints of explosive economic growth due to a boom in oil and natural gas production. As president, would you be willing to sacrifice some of that growth, even knowing potentially that it could displace thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers in the interest of transitioning to that greener economy?” He replied “The answer is yes.”

That’s the Democrats’ definition of a moderate? That isn’t the only example of Vice President Biden’s immoderation. Here’s another unserious answer:

JUDY WOODRUFF: Vice President Biden, what is your argument to the voter watching this debate tonight who may not like everything that President Trump does but they really like this economy and they don’t know why they should make a change?
BIDEN: Well, I don’t think they really do like the economy. Go back and talk to the neighbors in the old middle class neighborhoods that you grew up in. The middle class is getting killed. The middle class is getting crushed. The working class has no way up as a consequence of that.

If Biden is the Democrats’ nominee, he’ll get crushed spewing such stupidity. I quoted from Marc Thiessen’s column in this post. In his article, Thiessen quoted from a Marist poll:

A Marist poll asked voters whether “the economy is working well for you personally.” Nearly two-thirds of Americans said yes. This includes large majorities in almost every demographic group. Sixty-seven percent of college graduates and 64 percent of those without a college education say the economy is working for them. So do 68 percent of whites and 61 percent of nonwhite people.

So do Americans of every generation: 63 percent of Generation Z and millennials; 69 percent of Generation X; 63 percent of baby boomers; and 69 percent of Greatest Generation and Silent Generation voters. So do supermajorities in every region in the country: 60 percent in the West, 65 percent in the Northeast, 67 percent in the Midwest, and 68 percent in the South. So do most voters in every type of American community: 63 percent of both big and small city voters; 64 percent of small-town voters; 66 percent of rural voters and 72 percent of suburban voters.

Joe should contact some of these voters who he thinks don’t like the Trump economy. He’s losing credibility spewing that type of stupidity. Telling large majorities of virtually every demographic group that they really aren’t doing as well as they think they’re doing is foolish.

How does Biden explain this?

Super Saturday’s sales reached $34.4 billion, beating out Black Friday spending by 10%. The research firm says job growth, more disposable income, and stronger household finances contributed to the boosted buying mood this holiday season, and that mega-retailers like Walmart, Amazon, Costco and Target saw their best traffic in years.

Notice that the most popular retailers weren’t Nieman-Marcus and Macy’s. They were Walmart, Amazon, Costco and Target. If the Trump economy had left the middle class high and dry, these retailers wouldn’t have set records. Put bluntly, do you want Biden paying attention to the economy or would you prefer the man who helped put this economy into high gear running the show? This isn’t a close choice, is it?
