Joe Biden’s D-Day speech was a bitter mockery of Ronald Reagan

“Joe Biden’s trip to France proved two big things: He’s no Ronald Reagan, and he forgot to pack his patriotism. Along the way, he also managed to cheapen historic heroes by trying to score partisan political points with attacks on Donald Trump and House Republicans. Whatever happened to the tradition that partisanship stops at the water’s edge? Other than that, heckuva job, Mr. President. Biden’s visit to Normandy for the 80th anniversary of the D-Day invasion was overshadowed from the start by Reagan’s exceptional speech at the same spot 40 years earlier. Although the contrast must have eaten at Biden, who bitterly opposed almost everything Reagan did and stood for, White House aides used the Gipper’s speech as a guide for Biden’s. That was their first mistake.” (06/08/24)
