A spate of news articles came out in recent days hilariously attempting to do two things for Joe Biden. The first is to paint his dumpster presidency as though he’s a victim of circumstance rather than the rotting root of all of our nation’s woes.
Politico’s version on Sunday went like this: “President Joe Biden and his aides have grown increasingly frustrated by their inability to turn the tide against a cascade of challenges threatening to overwhelm the administration.” The story also declared that, “In crisis after crisis, the White House has found itself either limited or helpless in its efforts to combat the forces pummeling them”
Similarly, an online article by NBC News last week said Biden is “Faced with a worsening political predicament.” Biden is not “faced” with a “predicament” and there is not a “cascade of challenged” that’s “threatening” his administration. Biden is the predicament. He is the challenge.
It’s not a matter of chance that the southern border continues to be crushed by all of Latin America’s destitute. It’s because Biden and his trusty sidekick Kamala Harris allow it. They invite it.
There were 234,000 illegal border crossings in April, the latest month for which government data is available. That’s more than any other month of Biden’s presidency. It’s 55,000 more than April of the previous year and it’s more than triple the amount of crossing that took place in the final month of Donald Trump’s presidency.
Watching those numbers climb, Biden’s team decided it was as good a time as any to lift the Covid rule that allowed for the expedited expulsion of illegal migrants.
It’s by no sad stroke of luck that under Biden the cost of gas has doubled and Americans have to take out a second mortgage to buy a week of groceries. It’s the $2 trillion in welfare (sometimes referred to as “Covid relief”) Biden and Congressional Democrats shoved into an economy that was already at a simmer. Steve Rattner, an economist who worked in the Obama administration, when Biden was vice president, said all of that money would “go down in history as an extraordinary policy mistake.”
This is the case with all of our biggest problems. Biden isn’t “faced” with them. He created them.
The second thing these news articles do is try to make it look like Biden and his aides are aware of the calamity and are in some way productively strategizing the best ways to address it.
Here’s how the Washington Post did it on May 31: “President Biden [has] complained for weeks to aides that his administration was not doing enough to publicly explain the fastest price increases in roughly four decades.” The story referred to “new activity,” a “flurry of activity,” and, a “flurry of moves” by the White House, which amounted to some officials writing op-eds and appearing on TV news programs.
That Politico piece said the “plan” is now to “put Biden on the road to highlight progress being made.”
NBC illustrated how deadly earnest Biden is in noting that he’s “pressing aides for a more compelling message and a sharper strategy,” and mentioned that he’s “bristling at how they’ve tried to stifle the plain-speaking persona that has long been one of his most potent assets.”
Don’t worry, FOLKS. Biden knows just how bad it is out there for you FOLKS. He’s pressing and bristling, FOLKS.
If it weren’t for the fact that moms aren’t able to find baby formula in Biden’s barren economy, this would be funny. But that’s another one of those real problems Biden
Hang tight. The White House is about to put Biden on the road.
