The former Vice President and Congressman fancied himself as a guy who could get Republicans to work with him like they did back in the day when he was in Congress…
Has not happenned hardly…
Joseph Biden lacks the communication skills that other President’s have displayed when things went sideways on them….
Granted Biden has had a ton of stuff dropped in his lap….
(Inflation, Recession, Covid and now the Ukraine with corresponding high gas/oil prices)
But he’s getting dangerously close to point that his party people won’t REALLY want him to run for a second term….
On issue after issue?
He has to be dragged by the media and Democrats to do much of ANYTHING it seems….
He HAS a list of things he actually got done but doesn’t mention them….
No American’s in Oversea’s wars
Restructure of Student loan program
Stregthen American ties with Europe and NATO….
But ya never know any of this….
From the perception of hasty retreat from Afghanistan to promising Covid would be gone to having Joe Manchin tell him, the President , to kiss ‘his’ ring?
Biden has continued to come across weak to more and MORE Americans….
Joe Biden is the President….
Not the Vice President….
Not the US Senator from Delaware …
The guys seems to be ALWAYS ducking…..
At a moment of broad political tumult and economic distress, Mr. Biden has appeared far less engaged than many of his supporters had hoped. While many Democrats are pleading for a fighter who gives voice to their anger, Mr. Biden has chosen a more passive path — blaming Congress, urging people to vote and avoiding heated rhetorical battles.
“The economy seems to be running out of control. Fundamental rights are being stripped away. And the White House just isn’t coming with anything,” said Bill Neidhardt, a former spokesman for Senator Bernie Sanders, independent of Vermont.
Inside the White House, administration officials say Mr. Biden has been quick to respond to the country’s crises, even if he doesn’t get the credit they believe he deserves.
The president came into office promising competence and deliberative action after four years in which his predecessor governed by angry Twitter posts and frequent tirades. By contrast, Mr. Biden touted his sober experience as a legislator, saying it would help him bridge ideological divides. And he campaigned on knowing how to wield the authority of the presidency after serving eight years as vice president.
Early in the president’s term, Mr. Biden aggressively campaignedfor a trillion-dollar economic stimulus by promising $2,000 checks for every American, a robust political effort that helped energize his supporters and aided Democratic victories in Georgia to capture control of the Senate. Mr. Neidhardt said few Democrats see the same kind of energy or passion from the president now…..
On the big issues of the day, the president in recent months has often cited the limits of his power….
As Mr. Biden faces increased criticism, his approval ratings are taking a hit.
A Monmouth University poll released Tuesday put Mr. Biden’s approval rating at 36 percent and found that a majority of Americans believe the federal government’s actions are doing them harm. In a Harvard CAPS-Harris poll, 71 percent of those surveyed said they do not think the president should run for re-election.
In the meantime, other Democratic politicians are jumping into what they see as a void of leadership….
