The Biden Administration disaster is a historical tragedy. History buffs will discover many reasons for the current level of failure. The president is obviously not up to it. Joe Biden is not capable of leading America, whether it’s because he has cognitive decline or age. A weak president is not what anyone wants.
You can sense weakness in people, which is what Biden does.
He created an even bigger hole for himself by surrounding himself by young employees who were more motivated by left-wing rigidity than the desire to make a difference in everyday Americans lives. With a leader seemingly too weak to temper his team’s radical ideas, the results have been catastrophic.
Even with a corporate media desperate to keep propping him up, Biden’s approval ratings are at all-time lows.
The floor has seen a decline in support for men. Worse, his support for the Democratic Party from its normally strong-minded black and Hispanic bases has fallen dramatically.
There is no hope for the Democratic Party to survive. Republicans will have to somehow screw it up again.
Praying for a Republican disaster may be the Democrats’ only shot. That’s not generally a far-fetched scenario, but this time, their deficit may just be insurmountable.

Biden, as well as the Democrats, have fallen so quickly.
Surprisingly, in his inaugural speech the president managed to perfectly capture the mood of the nation. Americans are unhappy. The rate of polarization has reached record levels and is causing a nation to be more divided than ever since the Civil War.
Although Biden covered some left-wing priorities during his inaugural speech, more importantly, he called on the nation to heal and unite.
Had he governed that way, he would not be in the position he’s in today. He instead governed from an extremely ideological, out-of touch perspective, seemingly following the example of the radical wings of his party. This left the average American confused.
Biden immediately dismantled many of former President Donald Trump’s border security policies. That’s not surprising from a Democratic politician.
Biden did not have a replacement plan. He took down policies that were working and didn’t bother to put in place any plan of his own to secure the border.
When the predictable crisis followed, the Biden team’s first reaction was to pretend that everything was fine; there was no crisis.
If you are the team’s majority media member, it is possible to try out bold explanations, but this was just too much.
Like the CNN reporter proclaiming riot cities “mostly peaceful” in a camera shot with burning buildings in the background, there’s a level of political spin that will just never work.
Following an election where many Democrats openly advocated for open borders and decriminalizing illegal border crossing, the political blame for the crisis at the border landed squarely in the president’s lap.
But the biggest liability for the president isn’t the border; it’s the rising prices hammering the American people.
Knowing the political price they are likely to pay for skyrocketing inflation, Team Biden is desperately trying to spin this away as the “Putin Price Hike.”
It is clear, however, that the records are so compelling that even committed partisans wouldn’t try to replicate that record.

Biden’s nearly $2 trillion COVID-19 stimulant package was the centerpiece of the economic discussion when he took office. It is also known as the American Rescue Plan.
Coming on the heels of multiple Trump COVID-19 stimulus policies, many leading experts in both parties warned that Biden’s spending was going too far. They argued that this type of overstimulating would lead to high inflation.
Kevin Hassett (chairman of Trump’s Council of Economic Advisers) summarized the Republican warnings best. Hassett’s warning to Biden and the Fed was not subtle. He titled it “Inflation: The Ingredients Are in the Pot, and the Fire Is On.”
It’s understandable that Biden would tune out Trump’s chief economist, but he also tuned out some of the most prominent economic minds in his own party.
Bill Clinton’s Treasury secretary, Lawrence Summers, and Barack Obama’s chief economist, Jason Furman, were also warning very directly about inflation, beginning early in the Biden presidency.
Biden and his press team ignored the warnings of leading Democrats. Instead, they viciously attacked those who dare to disagree. Topped perhaps only by his tragic predictions about the doomed Afghanistan withdrawal, Biden defended his huge spending proposals with an argument that would be truly comical if it weren’t so sad: “The one thing we learned is we can’t do too much here. We can do too little.”

It was too much.
Biden also awarded the Federal Reserve’s leadership new positions, even though the Fed had clearly failed to address inflation.
Economists from both sides have complained about the central banks decision to keep interest rates low too long.
Even though inflation was already at an all-time high, the Fed kept the economy afloat with bond purchases up until last month.
The “Putin Price Hike” is only the latest Biden attempt to deflect responsibility.
At first, the White House insisted that inflation was “transitory.” This was, of course, repeated throughout the press. People who dared to disagree were also fact-checked. They argued that inflation was all about COVID-19. Then it was all about “supply chain disruptions.”
They assured us that all this would end and that everything would be okay.
All this happened before Russian President Vladimir Putin began his war. Now it’s Putin’s fault.
People often don’t have the time to study issues at length, but they can smell pure political spin from a mile away. This is a terrible example.
