Supporting our Veterans

Joe gets it. My father, rest his soul, was a WWII veteran and just passed in December. One of the last of "The Greatest Generation." He had PTSD his whole life. So I can personally attest to the negative affects of PTSD. It is glaringly evident that Joe has genuine empathy for this issue. (and a host of so many other issues) He gets it!!!!

And the way he attacks the bone-spur-draft-dodger underscores and reinforces my belief that Joe Biden is the proper candidate for the Democratic nomination.

America wants and needs a leader who is not faking it. If Joe highlights this wonderful empathic attribute he possesses, people will flock to vote for him. And yes, I know it's a video from 2016, but this is the Joe people need, want and long to see and hear.

1. THANK you!

Thank you for posting this! I'm really angry at the mainstream media for writing off Joe after just two states. Joe needs more exposure, lots more, so that people can see the stark contrast between Joe, a warm, empathetic, intelligent human being with a lifetime of experience in public service, and Trump, a cold, cruel, no-you-can't-see-my-grades monster with a lifetime of experience serving only himself.

Very glad to see Capt. Sully Sullenberg scolding Lara Trump and sticking up for Joe in his op-ed piece in the NY Times. A hero once again! Thank you, Sully!

2. So sorry for your dad's passing, his pain. You honor his experience in relating it to us.

Thank you for this clip which shows the profound wisdom and empathy Joe brings to his political life, to his candidacy. So will he bring that understanding and warmth to the presidency.

In addition to superior qualifications and experience. Joe adds an emotional dimension missing in the rest of the field no matter how sharp their policy debates, persuasive and lofty their plans, or trenchant their economic analysis.

So glad he is still in the running. We could not do better. Many discount him as a decent guy, nice man, but a hold over from another era who won’t exactly set the world on fire with his ideas.

What he will do is make the world safer with his knowledge of foreign policy and the respect and trust he has earned, not too long ago, on the world stage. What he can do, as every endorser notes, is to unify and heal this nation.

Go Joe! America and the world need you.
