On Wednesday, President Biden said there are 3 things he wants to do differently in the second year of his presidency. One of them, notably, is to leave Washington, D.C., more often to engage with the public.
JOE BIDEN: There's Three things I'm going to do differently now that I've gotten the critical crises out of the way in the sense of that movement knowing exactly where we're going. Number 1, I'd be out of this place more often. I'm going to go out and talk to the public.
I'm going to do public fora. I'm going to interface with them. I'm going to make the case of what we've already done, why it's important, and what we'll do if what will happen if they support what else I want to do.
Number 2, I'm bringing in more and more now that I have time. I mean, literally like you, I'm not complaining. It's 12, 14 hours a day. No complaints. I really mean that sincerely.
But now that certain of the big chunks have been put in place and we know the direction, I'm also going to be out there seeking more advice of experts outside from academia, to editorial writers, to think tanks and I'm bringing them in, just like I did early on bringing in presidential historians to get their perspective on what we should be doing. Seeking more input, more information, more constructive criticism about what I should and shouldn't be doing.
And the third thing that I'm going to be doing and a lot more of is being in a situation where I'm able to bring-- I'm going to be deeply involved in these off-year elections. We're going to be raising a lot of money. We're going to be out there making sure that we're helping all of those candidates. And some already asked me to come in and campaign with them to go out and make the case in plain simple language as to what it is we've done, what we want to do, and why we think it's important.
