(AmericanPoliticalDaily.com) – Even though it looks like former Vice President Joe Biden has the Democratic nomination in the bag, that didn’t stop him attempting to reach out to Bernie Sanders voters on Tuesday. During a campaign speech, following his sizeable primary victories in Arizona, Illinois, and Florida, Biden acknowledged that the two candidates “disagree on tactics” but “share a common vision” for the country.
But do they, really?
Joe Biden says he may disagree with Bernie Sanders on “tactics,” but the two “share a common vision.”

Wearing a bright green tie (presumably for St. Patrick’s Day?) Joe Biden acknowledge a difference in “tactics” but said he and Sanders agree on a common vision for the “need to provide affordable healthcare for all Americans, reduce income inequity that has risen so drastically, to tackling the existential threat of our time, climate change.”
By this logic, Biden should be acknowledging a disagreement in tactics but a shared vision with Donald Trump over tackling a broken healthcare system. The president is still battling Congressional Democrats who have rejected his proposal to make healthcare cheaper and more accessible on multiple occasions already.
Biden took the opportunity to praise Sanders, who is widely believed to be reconsidering the future of his campaign, and commend his “remarkable passion and tenacity to all of these issues.”
Pass the bucket!
“Together they have shifted the fundamental conversation in this country, so let me say especially to the young voters who have been inspired by Senator Sanders: I hear you. I know what’s at stake. I know what we have to do.”
Biden made a direct and clear pledge to younger voters in the Democratic Party who were rallied by Sanders and Sanders alone. He told them he understands “what’s at stake” and knows what must be done.
“Our goal as a campaign and my goal as a candidate for president is to unify this party, and then to unify the nation.”
If Biden can’t win over extreme socialists, then how exactly is he planning on uniting a nation when half the country voted for Trump and his nationalist, patriotic policies?
None of this makes sense, Joe!
