During an interview on Friday, Vice President Mike Pence slammed Democrats at the Democratic National Convention for focusing on “ad hominem attacks” on President Trump and drew a stark contrast between their platform and the one the president has been touting, which focuses on the economy and “law and order.”
Pence is right.
The whole DNC event was nothing more than an assault on the personal character and accomplishments of Donald Trump. They provided nothing of substance to convince the American people to support their policy platform. All they did was fearmonger as a means of pushing people to vote for Biden or else experience the end of the world.

Pence’s message after the final night of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) and ahead of the Republican National Convention (RNC) was the exact opposite of how Democrats portrayed the election this week — as a choice about the character of the two candidates. Pence acknowledged as much in his Friday comments, which came in an interview with “Fox & Friends.”
“Joe Biden said last night … democracy is on the ballot, character is on the ballot,” Pence told the morning show’s hosts, before laying out what he said the election was all about. “The economy is on the ballot. Law and order is on the ballot. And the American people know it…. the contrast with what Joe Biden and the Democrats are offering is astonishing.”
Pence said that Biden would “raise taxes on the American people by $4 trillion, to advance a $2 trillion version fo the ‘Green New Deal.'” He continued to say that the Democratic nominee’s policies, which he said were “overtaken by the radical left” would “simply invite more violence and more mayhem in our streets.”
He added that “there was so much negativity, nothing but ad hominem attacks” and “a very negative view of America” at the DNC.
Policy wasn’t something that really seemed to be on the forefront of the Democratic Party’s mind during the DNC event. It was all about finding as many ways as possible to personally attack President Trump and craft narratives that would increase fear.
This is how the left wants to win. By making you trade liberty for security. It’s the oldest trick in the book. What’s sad is there are so many folks in this country foolish enough to still fall for it.
