Kamala Harris says that the voters got what they wanted when they “elected” Joe Biden. Let’s not blame the voters because they are not the reason Biden won. Besides, the analogy is wrong. I believe the correct one would be, “Be careful what you wish for because you might just get it.” So, according to Harris, the voters wanted astronomical gas prices, international embarrassments in Afghanistan and Ukraine? Sky high inflation and a dysfunctional government?
Somehow I find this hard to believe. I also don’t believe they wanted never-ending lockdowns or punishment for not getting an experimental drug. Call me crazy, but that’s what I believe.
“As we all know, elections matter. And when folks vote, they order what they want, and in this case, they got what they asked for.”
The polls would seem to suggest otherwise:
According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, just 37% of Americans approve of his job performance — a career-low for him — while 55% do not approve. Additionally, RealClearPolitics’ average of Biden’s approval rating shows that 40.8% of Americans approve while 54.6% do not.
Aside from Trump, Biden’s approval rating is lower than any other recent president at the same point in their president.
The abysmal polling for Biden comes as inflation is hitting 40-year highs and gas prices are surging. When asked what the plan was to bring gas prices down late last year, Biden’s energy secretary laughed. And White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said that higher gas prices make “an even stronger case for doubling down our investment and our focus on clean energy option.”
Additionally, last year the number of border crossings surged to a 21-year high, and Americans witnessed the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan as the Taliban overran the country following two decades of war.
Biden also tried to implement a coronavirus vaccine mandate despite just months earlier saying that he would not take such a step.
In fact, the only two things the voters believe Biden has been successful at are sniffing little girls’ hair and whispering in their ears. Somehow that does not define a successful president.
