Is the Biden strategy to make fewer gaffes to simply hide?

Friends and supporters of former Vice President Joe Biden have been gently suggesting to him and to campaign officials that perhaps he should make fewer campaign appearances, thus lessening the likelihood of Mr. Biden making more high profile gaffes, as he did repeatedly last week in Iowa.

Divisiveness the cause of violence

Never before in our history have we seen the level of divisiveness and hate rhetoric that is now rampant throughout the country. A congressional representative calls for people to get in the face of Republicans. Another publicizes a list of Trump donors, endangering the donors and their families. Administration officials are accosted while at restaurants. Rioters disrupt congressional hearings and call for the Senate majority leader to be killed, right in front of his home. The president is blamed for mass shootings and falsely accused of being a racist.

Americans may be subject to creeping doubts, but there is no substitute for persistence.
