Joe Biden is on vacation in his basement hideaway in Delaware. While he is enjoying happy hour with “Dr” Jill, the Southern Border is overflowing, Afghanistan is returning to Taliban rule, and we are begging OPEC to produce more barrels of crude for us to buy. What a mess, and did I mention the Joe Biden is on vacation?
When asked today how he felt about the disaster in Afghanistan, his response was, “I have no regrets .” The mothers, fathers, husbands, and wives who lost loved ones to preserve Afghanistan over the last twenty years have regrets. And they are pissed. Their loved ones died in vain because an inept lifelong member of the swamp is now sleeping in the White House. He is governing our great country, but it is painfully evident that he has no clue what he is doing.
In seven months, Joe Biden has done more damage to this country than anyone could have imagined. He has destroyed our Southern Border, screwed up Operation Warp Speed, resorted to Mask Mandates, and given Afghanistan back to the Taliban, who we took it from twenty years ago. He also has to address the 40% increase in gasoline cost at the pumps by pleading with OPEC to produce more crude. Had Biden not shut down the Keystone Pipeline on Day 1, we would still enjoy energy independence. That is what Donald Trump left for Joe Biden, and Biden destroyed it on Day 1. This effort is more than a lack of competence. It is a national embarrassment. Joe Biden is our President, but he will be remembered as our worst Presidency ever.
In addition to the failed policies I just mentioned, Joe Biden is complicit in the Democrat-controlled Congress spending money like a drunken sailor on leave. The Democrats, led by Bernie Sanders, AOC, and the rest of the Squad, are working hard to inflict as many Socialistic ideals on our country as they can before the Mid-Terms. They realize this is a narrow window of opportunity before the Republicans regain both houses in 2022, and Joe Biden is working with them.
I am hard-pressed to cite one favorable decision made by Biden since January 20th. He has put Kamala Harris in charge of as many as seven initiatives. These include the Border Crisis, Protecting Voter Rights, the Biden Infrastructure Plan, and more. She is yet to gain any traction on any one initiative. Though Biden claimed to have many friends in various countries, his lack of initiative on getting ambassadors placed is slowing any attempts at international diplomacy. His strongest ally is China, which may have issues due to Hunter’s apparent connections with the Chinese.
With such a dysfunctional administration, is there hope that he can get it on track? No. Biden has never been in a position to manage. He has spent nearly 50 years as an ineffective Senator and lacks the executive experience to right this sinking ship. That is great for Republicans and gives them much to run on in 2022. It is not good for the country and has to be corrected and soon. As Biden continues to decline mentally, there will be growing calls to invoke the 25th Amendment. That would leave Harris in the big seat, and there is no way she is ready for Prime Time. The voters got their wish with Biden, but often you have to be careful what you wish for.
