Biden to give prime-time speech on 'soul of the nation' as voters prepare to cast midterm ballots

The president is expected to speak outside Independence Hall in Philadelphia on Thursday night.

....President Joe Biden plans to deliver a prime-time speech this week on how America’s “rights and freedoms are still under attack,” returning to the core message of his 2020 campaign as Americans are getting ready to vote in the November midterm elections.

A White House official said Thursday's address at Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia would focus on “the continued battle for the soul of the nation” and show how the president sees the central argument of his 2020 candidacy remains as salient as ever with the midterm elections coming into clearer focus.

The president will lay out how America’s standing in the world and its democracy are at stake, the official said. Biden will highlight what he sees as progress over the past two years to protect our democracy, but note that rights and freedoms remain at risk.

“He will make clear who is fighting for those rights, fighting for those freedoms, and fighting for our democracy,” the official said.

Biden will deliver the speech outside Independence Hall, another echo of his 2020 candidacy, which began with a rally in Philadelphia. In that campaign, Biden repeatedly drew upon the message of not just the nation’s Founding Fathers but other great leaders in highlighting how he viewed then-President Donald Trump as someone who would risk changing the character of the nation if given another term in office. He later drew on Abraham Lincoln with a major speech at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and Franklin Roosevelt in Warm Springs, Georgia, in the closing weeks of the 2020 campaign.

Thursday's speech comes as Biden is ramping up his travel schedule in the closing months of the midterm elections. The event in Philadelphia will be his third in the battleground state in the span of one week. Biden on Tuesday intends to discuss his plan for public safety and will contrast that with what he will say is an “extreme MAGA agenda” from congressional Republicans that “is a threat to the rule of law.”

While it’s not yet clear how much Biden will invoke his predecessor this week, he and his advisers have made clear that they think the former president’s grip on the GOP has boosted Democrats’ chances of protecting congressional majorities this fall.

Last week, in remarks at a Democratic National Committee rally in Maryland, Biden said that “MAGA Republicans don’t just threaten our personal rights and economic security, they’re a threat to our very democracy.”



Biden......speech.......?!

The country is so split that the only people likely to watch him are those that already support him. Everyone else will switch over to Fox News for a “fair and balanced” take.

I don't think he's asked for broadcast time, or at least I can't see it in the link. He's just announcing the time and place for an important speech.

I never would have imagined we’d be having a president announce a speech designed to save our democracy.

He's not wrong. Claims of election fraud with zero evidence, physical assault on the Capital with the tacit approval of a sitting president, legislation to override the popular vote if the winner does not reflect the majority of legislators, proven foreign meddling in already tight elections, Hunter Biden's laptop, this list just goes on and on.

Biden does not give a good rousing speech...his delivery is dull. Too bad for us.

Got a link to him actually saying that? All I find online are sites claiming he said that.
Surly there’s a video somewhere.

Perhaps he was referring to…
“An AR 15 can fire around 2 to 3 bullet rounds per second, this means that in 15 seconds, an AR 15 can fire about 30 to 45 bullet rounds…”
