Patterico's Pontifications


Constitutional Vanguard: By What Standard Ought We Judge Joe Biden?

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 8:29 am

Today I argue that comparing Biden to Trump is the wrong standard, because Biden is president now.

… unless someone else is making the same comparison to float the idea that Trump is better.

A friend tried to make the case to me that, if you put the “election stuff” aside, Trump was really no worse than Biden. I don’t agree, but let’s call that true for the sake of argument. The phrase that comes to mind is:

Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?

So yeah: by almost any standard, Biden is terrible. But please. Don’t use that fact to try to plead the case for Donald Trump.

Thank you.
