In case you didn’t catch on during the campaign season or during President Biden’s signing of dozens of executive actions, orders, and memoranda during his first week in office, Biden is a Democrat through and through. That was made crystal clear Tuesday as Biden spoke about his decision to bring back “diversity and sensitivity training” and kill off President Trump’s “1776 Project.”
Why? Because only a Democrat would believe that the “obvious” reason we’ve never fully lived up to the founding principles of the United States is that “we’ve bought the view that America is a zero-sum game.” That is, if you succeed, I fail … if I hold you down, I lift myself up. That’s pretty much the opposite view of every conservative in America.
Biden: "We’ve never fully lived up to the founding principles of this nation, to state the obvious. … We bought the view that America is a zero sum game … If you succeed, I fail. If you get ahead, I fall behind. … Maybe worse of all, if I hold you down, I lift myself up." pic.twitter.com/0maDrVkd3b

If Biden amasses a net worth of $9 million, he must have done so at the expense of so many less fortunate people, right?
These people actually…take themselves seriously

I have literally never heard the United States described as this sort of zero-sum game.

I have, but only from Democrats.

In a strange way, the latter part of his comments has a ring of truth, but it is an accusation against his own Party. They are the ones that have been relentlessly pushing the “if you succeed I fail” narrative.
Maybe he should be addressing this to the Dem Caucus.

This is really divisive talk. "A rising tide lifts all boats" has been a republican principle for decades.

But if I get money from Ukraine then somebody has to work to make that money.

He was in government for 50 years and VP for 8. Never thought to fix this?

This is complete,total, absolute bullshit. Every single word of it is pure trash. If any party in this country has felt as if America is a zero-sum game, it is Democrats.
Its how they sell perpetual victimhood.

I don't know anyone who thinks this is the American way

I wonder who he held down to become president. 🤔🤔🤔

Isn’t that the Democrat philosophy in a nutshell?

Yep. The “America was never great” contingent voted for him.
Pres Biden is turning out to be just what we feared…a hollowed-out shell espousing liberal dogma that he previously eschewed…reading the teleprompter and then back to bed… #JohnGill pic.twitter.com/zp7DGrwTnu

"We’ve never fully lived up to the founding principles of this nation" … yeah storming the beaches of Normandy, winning the Civil War, landing on the moon, and curing disease isn't what America stands for https://t.co/d8WFliSTTk

The only people pushing the zero-sum-game fallacy are libs. Republicans have talked about growing the pie forever.

Why is America so damn horrible for these Democrats. Really is sad and frustrating to hear on the regular.

But don’t worry — he’s fixing America via executive order. No more xenophobia against Asian-Americans because of the coronavirus … boom! Executive order. Restoring training to keep white educators from contributing to the spirit murder of black students. Racism fixed via executive order! America sucks, but he’ll do what he can to realize those founding ideals.
