Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Former Vice President Joe Biden says it's a myth that the young people Democrats need to turn out in the 2020 election are looking for "something radically different" in politics.

"This is not a hit on Bernie," Biden said. "But this is not a generation of socialists."

Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a self-described "democratic socialist", is among the small group of Democratic presidential candidates who, along with Biden, have emerged as the top tier of 2020 hopefuls.

Biden said young people are concerned about corporate America's growing power, but they understand the Constitution and that consensus has to be reached in politics. "The vast majority, they want rational policy," said Biden, 76. He went on to say, "I don't think they're looking for a radicalization of who we are and what we do."

Is Biden correct or severely out of touch?

I did not think, for a second, that "young people" are socialists, that's the label that Republicans have been trying to burden them with.

That aside...

I do think that "young people" want something different in politics. They see what politics have given us, i.e., Pres Trump, and they want a process that gives a different outcome.

Wouldn't you? Currently, more than half agree with them ( www.realclearpolitics.com )

"Who doesn't?"

Republicans. They want 2 trillion dollar tax cuts that grow the debt. They want students to be deeply in debt. They want healthcare to be unaffordable.
