Our ship of state is rudderless
This newly released ABC/Washington Post poll substantiates Biden’s upside-down polling numbers while admitting economic concerns are hurting his approval ratings — rightly placing democrats in peril ahead of the midterm elections.
His unprecedented low ranking comes as he is facing myriad concerns, including what the accompanying report described as, “Underwater ratings for his handling of Ukraine, a split on the pandemic and weak scores on personal attributes including leadership, handling a crisis and mental sharpness. But 40-year-high inflation leads his headaches; by 35-17 percent Americans are apt to say they’ve gotten worse off rather than better off under his presidency.”
Vladimir Putin’s bloody, full-scale military invasion of Ukraine stands as another humiliating defeat for Joe Biden. He staked this country’s reputation, billions of dollars and the full force of the U.S. government on blocking what has turned into a debacle. When Putin recently began his saber rattling, U.S. Commander-in-Chief Biden blankly referred to the aggression a “minor incursion.”
In August 2021, just months into his presidency, Biden oversaw a chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan. He left American citizens and Afghan allies behind, and armed the Taliban terrorists with advanced weapon technology as he executed his unannounced retreat. Thirteen US service members were killed by an ISIS-K suicide bomber outside the Kabul airport while helping to oversee the evacuation
If we can survive the next three years of Biden’s ineptness we can hope for a sound election without legitimate manipulation concerns and uncertainties. That will entail electing another solid Republican, as we previously did with President Donald J. Trump. Under his leadership, the economy soared, unemployment was at an all-time low, law enforcement was respected and the border wall was under construction.
America’s future is our hands — but only if we get active, register new GOP voters, and vote for known conservative Republicans, rather than posers.
