Viral video exposes similarities between Joe Biden’s DNC speeches in 2020 and 2008

A new video is going viral this week exposing the similarities between the speech Joe Biden gave on Thursday night at the Democratic National Convention and the one he gave in 2008 at the DNC as he accepted being named as Barack Obama’s running mate.

The speeches not only had similar platitudes, but Biden even used the same words at times. Here are some of the similarities the video exposes:

2008: “It’s about whether you can look your children in the eye and say, ‘We’re going to be okay.'”

2020: “It’s about looking your kids in the eye and say, ‘Honey, it’s going to be okay.'”

2008: “That’s how you come to believe, to the very core of your being, that work is more than a paycheck. It’s dignity. It’s respect.”

2020: “He would say, ‘Joey, a job is about a lot more than a paycheck. It’s about your dignity. It’s about respect.'”

2008: “Barack Obama will transform our economy by making alternative energy a genuine national priority, creating 5 million new jobs and finally freeing us from the grip of foreign oil. That’s the change we need.”

2020: “With pipes that transport clean water to every community. With 5 million new manufacturing and technology jobs so the future is made in America.”

2008: “Barack Obama will put more cops on the streets, put the ‘security’ back in Social Security and never give up until we achieve equal pay for women.”

2020: “I will not let it happen. If I’m your president, we’re going to protect Social Security and Medicare.”

2008: “And this is the time as Americans, together, we get back up.”

2020: “It’s an America we can rebuild together.”

2008: “These are extraordinary times. This is an extraordinary election.”

2020: “All elections are important. But we know in our bones this one is more consequential.”
