Even though Joe Biden is known for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time, ending in hilarious backlash on the tides of the Internet, we have to admit that like any other politician out there, he occasionally hit the bull’s eye with his comments. Here are the top 10 best comments that came straight from Joe Biden.
Our future cannot depend on the government alone. The ultimate solutions lie in the attitudes and the actions of the American people.
Truer words were never spoken. America is composed of states, of numerous people who all need to be involved in forging their future in the best way possible. And, this can’t be done if they rely solely on the government, expecting them to know what the people want.
Look, freedom is an overwhelming American notion. The idea that we want to see the world, the peoples of the world free is something that all of us subscribe to.
The land of the free and the home of the brave. We should all value our freedom over anything else, and strive to help others who were stripped off of it.
Let’s just be smart this time. I’m looking for smart.
Plain and simple. No explanation is necessary here.
When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on the television and didn’t just talk about the princes of greed. He said, ‘Look, here’s what happened.’
Biden knows that people don’t want to hear fairy tales. They want to hear the truth, no matter how bad it may be. That’s the only way a proper relationship between the people and the government can be formed.
The nuclear option is ultimately an example of the arrogance of power.
Only those who have the power to destroy another country brag about it so freely, as if it’s nothing. And, that’s exactly what it is: the arrogance of power.
Life is a matter of really tough choices.
This is true. What’s also true is that the things with real value in life never come easy. We need to fight for them. We need to give something up and make sacrifices. Otherwise, every choice would be easy, and we would value nothing.
My dad always said, ‘Champ, the measure of a man is not how often he is knocked down, but how quickly he gets up.’
An old saying that still rings true now as it did centuries ago.
I know what I believe, I know what I want to do, and I’m just comfortable saying it, and laying it out there.
People who lay their cards openly on the table are usually welcomed with open arms by the public. Biden knows this and this is why he doesn’t shy away from speaking his mind, even when it might not be what the majority agrees with.
It’s presumptuous to say you know how somebody feels.
We all say it, but a few of us truly know what the other person is feeling. That’s why sometimes, it’s not the right thing to say. Sympathy is a wonderful trait, but sometimes compassion and understanding is enough.
We must rekindle the fire of idealism in our society.
Last but not least. Biden speaks about idealism. Many people have forgotten what it means to have dreams, to strive for them, to set a big goal and keep working on it, no matter what, even if we know it’s probably an unattainable goal. Sometimes, the journey is enough to keep us happy, to keep us occupied and satisfied.
