At this point in time, and barring some miraculous turnaround, Joe Biden will likely go down in history as one of America’s most ineffective Presidents.
After a year and a half in office, President Biden has very little to hang his hat on…even after enjoying a majority in both chambers of Congress. He’s battling a progressive wing of the party that’s hellbent on dragging his centrist self to the far left, all while moderate Democrats drop anchor and stall just about every bit of progress Biden has been eyeing.
Now, not even halfway through Biden’s term, the First Lady appears to be insinuating defeat, using the past tense to describe the President’s ambitions.
Jill Biden has said her husband ‘had so many hopes’ when he got into office, but there were ‘problems of the moment’ that needed to be addressed first.
The First Lady, 71, spoke at a fundraising event for the Democratic National Committee in Nantucket, Massachusetts, on Saturday.
Dr. Biden employed a popular excuse of the administration’s, suggesting that world events were the reason for the White House’s stagnation.
‘[The President] had so many hopes and plans for things he wanted to do, but every time you turned around, he had to address the problems of the moment,’ she told donors at the event.
The First Lady also waxed on about the potential “red wave” coming in November.
‘I know there are so many nay-sayers who say we’ll get slammed in the midterms. Okay. The Republicans are working hard, they stick together, for good or evil. So, we just have to work harder,’ Jill Biden said.
While it certainly is refreshing to hear that the administration is beginning to see the writing on the wall, taking a little bit of responsibility would go a long way too.
