There are two major problems with what is being pushed about Biden and I think the most important is that as far as I know he’s not made sexual advances towards any of these women. He hasn’t verbally come on to other women. He doesn’t just get “touch feely,” with attractive women, he does the same things regardless of age, gender, race, etc. I’ve seen him kiss men on the cheek and have his hands on their shoulders. It’s clear that it’s not sexual, the evidence is overwhelming. He’s always been a person who connects with people through affection especially since he’s experienced so much loss in his life.
The other major problem with what’s happening to him is that some women have gotten so caught up into the “Me Too,” mentality that they’ve lost objectivity. Biden is old school. He doesn’t need to apologize for how he was raised beyond saying that he didn’t know that what he was doing upset some of these women and that he’ll be more careful in the future since apparently the rules have changed. It’s truly this simple but it’s not enough for these women that Biden apologized for making them feel uncomfortable; they want him to apologize for sexually harassing them. This is the danger of the movement. This time it’s Biden, who’s next?
The bottom line is I don’t like Biden but that doesn’t mean I want him to be attacked for something that I believe is unjust. Maybe more will come out about his story but for now, it appears other candidates were looking for a way to take out the person who was beating them badly in the polls and he hadn’t even jumped in the race yet.
