Democrats have produced the biggest headlines recently on the charged issue of voting rights. What they’ve yet to produce is an effective strategy to counteract the work Republican state legislators are doing to limit access and inject partisanship into the election process. More and more for Democrats, it looks like a long battle ahead.
On Wednesday, addressing voting rights, President Biden gave the most passionate speech of his presidency, and one of the most impassioned of his long career. He forcefully condemned former president Donald Trump’s relentless and baseless assault on the validity of the 2020 election, saying, “The ‘big lie’ is just that, a big lie.”
He characterized Trump’s continuing claims of fraud rather than accepting the results as an example of “human nature at its worst, something darker and more sinister.” He connected the dots in Trump’s assault on the election, the attack on the Capitol on Jan. 6 and the new laws enacted in Republican-controlled legislatures.
