Lead Story: The Victory Tour
President Biden began a “Help is Here” tour on Tuesday to promote his $1.9 trillion stimulus bill that just passed. Why does he need to do that? And why does a victory tour need a name like a concert tour? We are not keen to buy that t-shirt.
The President and Vice President, as well as their spouses, will be crossing the country this week to highlight the benefits of the stimulus plan so that voters solidify the faces that brought them that $1,400 check.
President Biden said that this tour was something former President Obama refused to do and it cost the Democratic Party.
“Barack was so modest,” President Biden said. “He didn’t want to take, as he said, ‘a victory lap’. I kept saying, ‘Tell people what we did.’ He said, ‘We don’t have time, I’m not gonna take a victory lap.’ We paid a price for it ironically, for that humility.”
Humility, shmumility! Cash the check. Kiss the ring!
