For Crisis-Riddled Biden, Russia Is The Foreign Distraction He’s Been Waiting For

Share

President Joe Biden has a myriad of domestic crises to deal with, but instead of taking on the issues that matter most to voters, he’s focused on a conflict with Russia over Ukraine.

While Americans struggle with unchecked inflation, bare grocery shelves, ongoing tyranny in the name of curbing Covid-19, rising urban crime, and trouble at the southern U.S. border, Biden is using Russia’s conflict with Ukraine to deflect attention from the fact that his administration is failing on the homefront.

For months, Biden’s popularity with voters has tanked. More than half of Americans disapprove of the job Biden has done, and even more, 72 percent, say the country is headed in the wrong direction. Even Biden’s own party is distancing itself from the president’s atrocious first year in office, especially after he failed to pass the Build Back Better plan despite having a Democrat-controlled Congress and wishing death on the filibuster.

That’s why the White House was excited when it realized that a U.S. response to an invasion across the globe could be the distraction voters needed to get their minds off of Biden’s domestic shortcomings.

Earlier this month, the Biden administration encouraged media coverage of the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Biden even told the world last week that because of the nation’s “significant intelligence capability,” he knew Russia would invade Ukraine, and corporate media outlets and warmongers ran with the story.

So far, though, voters aren’t buying it.

New polling shows that even Russia can’t save Biden from his disastrous track record. According to a Gallup poll conducted at the beginning of February, only 36 percent of U.S. adults approve of Biden’s handling of the situation with Russia. That’s one point less than Americans’ approval of Biden’s handling of the economy, which sits at 37 percent.

After Biden’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal, which cost at least 13 American lives and stranded thousands more, plenty of voters, at least 56 percent, disapprove of the president’s handling of foreign affairs — especially when there are so many issues he is ignoring at home.

Gas prices are up, drugs smuggled in by crime rings are pouring across the southern border as are hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens, and Americans in cities are fighting off increasing violent crime, but mum’s the word from the president.

Biden and his team have epically failed in multiple ways. Despite the administration’s greatest efforts to call U.S. attention to a foreign conflict, Americans affected by Biden’s incompetence won’t forget all of the domestic crises he overlooked to focus on the Democrats’ favorite scapegoat: Russia, Russia, Russia.
