We are continuing to be subjected to media ‘Hair on Fire’ headlines and stories about the new variant….
The Omicron mutation…
On the health side?
The experts are saying we have to wait for more scientific evidence on the effect of this strain of virus….
The experts know that different virus variants are gonna NEVER stop appearing around the globe….
With the media focuses?
They are going to playing catchup….
On the Political side?
Officials have a problem….
People around the world are ‘tired’ …..
They want their lives back….
They’ll take their shots wear their masks, try to practice social distancing….
(Vaccines do NOT stop the virus…They DO beat down the effects of the virus on most , not all people…They are proven effective in cutting back the number of serious reactions across the population making the virus more manageable )
But even as the media tries to keep the lid on it?
Human’s ARE seeking to walk their way thru all this….
And get back to some sort of normal outside their caves….
This is raptly coming to rest on President Biden’s doorstep….
He cannot afford to be seen as the leader who is trying to shut down the country again….
(It’s the Economy Stupid!)
He knows such a move would make things even worst for his party going into next years midterm elections….
And Republicans Are already moving to attach the new virus to Democrat Joe Biden and his party….
The virus IS eating up all the political oxygen Democrats need desperately for next years elections….
Inflation is just making things worst……
“We’re still in the middle of fighting a pandemic and people are sick and tired of that,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said. “We are, too.”
White House aides are also grappling with the best means to deliver their message around Omicron, as frustration long ago set in among the president and his inner circle about how masks and vaccinations have grown politicized. Anthony Fauci, the president’s chief Covid adviser, has long been a trusted, go-to voice on public health, but he has become a villain among many on the right, leading aides to weigh whether he should cut back on appearances. But Fauci has been empowered to set his own media schedule and his National Institutes of Health supervisor, Francis Collins, another favored voice in the West Wing, has announced he will be stepping down, making the need for trusted communicators even greater.
Biden’s advisers blame the pandemic for most of the setbacks that have befallen his administration over the past several months, from soaring inflation to the struggle by many businesses to hire workers. And they blame the pandemic’s staying power on an intransigent minority resisting vaccinations, which has kept hospitals busy and forced even those who have diligently followed public health guidelines to remain masked up.
Poll after poll reflects a sense of unease within the nation, as people gear up for another holiday season shadowed by a surge in virus cases. Americans are frustrated and antsy and increasingly they have taken to blaming the man behind the Resolute Desk.
“He probably would not have been elected without the virus and now he has to contend with the difficulties it brings,” said David Axelrod, former senior adviser to President Barack Obama. “These are sobering thoughts heading into the holiday season: Part of what he’s coping with is a sense that things are out of control and he was elected to get things under control.”
“From a political standpoint, Biden’s ability to put the virus in the rearview mirror is paramount,” Axelrod added. “Any scenario in which Dems escape a catastrophe in 2022 relies on people feeling better about the pandemic and the economy.”….
