Joe Biden is still….ole’ Joe….
It’s hurting his polling numbers….
Let’s face it…
He got his job because wasn’t Donald Trump for the most part…
Ole Joe, the President actually hasn’t done that bad….
I say ‘that bad ‘ because he HAS messed up a bit….
His first miss was the Afghan evacuation….
Poorly timed and carried out….
It allowed the media to run a story that played as a hurried screw up…..
His second miss has been the pandemic response….
While his mandate orders has pushed up the numbers of vaccine inoculations ?
The reported number is less than 57% right now….
And Red state governor’s are disregarding his mandate orders….
The newspapers and news channels’s are running daily stories about how a Democratic President is going hat in hand to try and get two DEMOCRATIC senator’s to go along with his BIG PLAN to get a ‘historic’ number of spending bill’s and budget passed .
And then there are stories about the ‘problems’ at the Southern Border…..
The above stuff played across the media do NOT make Joe Biden look like a strong President….
Strong American President’s, even if they might be going in the wrong direction?
Get approval numbers ABOVEv 50%…
That ain’t Joe Biden….
Joe Biden HAS brought the troops home from Afghanistan….
Joe Biden HAS KEPT Donald Trump’s immigration actions to exclude vast numb era of migrants….
Joe Biden HAS helped stimulus money keep flowing to families and for kids….
Joe Biden HAS stopped the chaos of politics that Trump revelled in…
Joe Biden has shepherd an economy that is ok, but NOT in the toilet ….
Joe Biden IS dancing with progressives to leverage them against centrist and conservative Democrats…
Virus case, hospital stays , and deaths are dropping….
All in all?
The Biden admin is actually not so bad..
Ya wouldn’t know that. eh?
Joe Biden was a lawmaker for decades….
In that ?
He worked as part of a group….
He only came into the spotlight occasionally, and for short period of time and sometimes those shows ups were not
After leaving Congress?
Biden got picked to be the Vice President to the nations’ first Black/Mixed President….
(Biden ran for President several times but just couldn’t make it)
With Obama, a historic accention, younger, better speaker and politican before the camera’s ….
Biden worked in the background ….
But a year ago?
He ran against Captain Choas and won….
He won because he was 180 degrees the opposite of the President that was so much or a knucklehead that he was almost sole responsible for a loss , he can’t get over and figure why it happened….
Donald Trump , right now, has better polling approval numbers than President Joe Biden….
Trump has begun to get back into the media a place he stayed out of for months grieving over his loss by 7 minion votes and his efforts to overthrow those votes and the election result….
He’s still crying…
And he now wants to run on ‘taking back America’, som thing he tried to do after he lost his job….
Joe Biden by contrast is almost invisible….
The times that he has tried to come forward in the media?
He has made gaffs and been defense….
While Trump talks bulls hit and gets away with it as entertainment by some and ridicule by other’s?
He STILL has an outsized presence in the media …
Biden doe s NOT….
As much as he IS the President of the United States of America….
He is turning out to be ‘nice guy’ that tries to force things that may pop may not work….
He has gone back to the old press secretary way of dealing the hungry media while Trump just gets up and blasts way….
I saw this during the 2020 Presidential campaign….
Trump out loud….
Biden quiet but steady and the voice of reason….
Still President Biden that way….
180 degrees opposite Trump…
Talking and dancing to get a widdled down ‘new direction’ in government policy right now is NOT playing good for President Biden….
The media and people fast forget Biden’s accomplishments…
They only see his gaffs, his running around trying to get something from his own people and a Republican Party seemingly on th same page against a Democratic Party splinters and willing to beat down their own guy, something Donald Trump will NOT stand for….
Joe Biden IS gonna HAVE TO get to ‘look’ tougher in the media to American voters to get his numbers back up….
It could be as soon as he gets a spending package done….
It could be as the virus cases keep dropping….
Democrats hope sooner rather than later….
They need SOMETHING to calm their fears about another 2010 like Midterm rout, like Biden also lived thru back then.
They want a leader not one who just looks like just a nice guy…..
It isn’t the virus’ resurgence alone that’s hindered Biden. While Afghanistan and the border have largely faded from the news cycle, polls show they contributed to his slide, especially in how voters judged his competency in the job. In Georgia, Democrats said they remained confused and upset by Biden’s decision-making on Afghanistan, migrants at the border, and the intraparty feuding around his economic agenda. “Disappointed” was a word used by most of the Black and white voters who spoke to POLITICO in the metro Atlanta area when describing Biden’s time in office. But none said they were prepared to abandon Democrats in 2022 and 2024.
Sylvia Bernstein, a 71-year-old Biden voter from Atlanta, said Biden had “made horrible mistakes,” particularly on Afghanistan and refugees. “And now this budget that he’s trying to pass — $3 trillion — I don’t see that happening,” said Bernstein, who is white. “And I don’t think he’s gotten much support from other Democrats. Everybody seems to be floundering around.”
The hope among elected Democrats is that legislative success will ultimately calm voters like Bernstein and give Biden a needed reprieve from the seemingly endless brutal news cycles he’s endured, whether they be on the Covid battle or Afghanistan withdrawal.
“We get this done, then those numbers will turn around,” said Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) of Biden’s job numbers. “We don’t get this done, then those numbers will not turn around.”
Specifically, Clyburn blamed the sustained intraparty fighting over the Build Back Better plan for hurting the president.
“On substance, the president’s programs are what people seem to want. Like everything else, it’s the sausage making that’s causing problems with the polls,” he added. “There are one or two [senators] that will keep him from getting to 50.”….
