Dems' hypocrisy continues

| Thursday, Sept. 21, 2017, 8:55 p.m.

Former Vice President Joe Biden had an op-ed published in The Atlantic Aug. 27 that criticized President Trump for handling the Charlottesville, Va., event in a way that divides this country, and said Trump has contempt for the Constitution. Really? President Obama had more contempt for the Constitution than Trump may possibly ever have.

What Biden obviously forgets is that for the eight years the Obama administration governed this country, it was partially successful in dividing this country to what it is now, with all the corruption and scandals it had, and added almost $10 trillion to the national debt that citizens will have to pay for in the future.

I've always been a registered independent, and unless God himself is a Democrat, I'll never vote for any more Democrats in my lifetime. The hypocrisy of the Democrats just continues, and obviously will never end as long as they still have a breath left in them.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
