The media’s ‘events’ excuse for Biden’s failures

Connect with us

President
Joe Biden
is a helpless bystander to a national and global malaise beyond his control. At least, that’s what the public is being told by a national media mystified by all of the afflictions on Biden’s presidency. It somehow never strikes the media that Biden and his administration might just be a reason for the current state of the
economy
and the country.

Bloomberg
forecast
this week that the odds of a U.S. recession next year (reminder that the country is already in recession) stand at 100% “in blow to Biden.” The guy just keeps suffering blows. CNN’s Chris Cillizza wrote in July
that
“Joe Biden can’t catch a break.” Earlier this year, USA Today
wrote
, “From Afghanistan to inflation to the baby formula shortage, Joe Biden has been hammered by events that have eroded his support even among Democrats.” Did you get that? Hammered by events. Referencing a poll conducted by the Associated Press in June, politics reporter Zeke Miller
tweeted
, “Growing majority in US say nation is on wrong track, including 78% of Democrats, as economy plagues Biden.”

Biden is suffering from blows, events, and plagues, and our media just can’t explain why it’s happening!

Perhaps, and stay with me here, Biden and his extreme spending, short-sighted foreign policies, and complete lack of urgency in addressing the supply chain shortages might just play a role in all of this.

Biden ran on making the country a quieter, better place that benefited by having “the adults back in the room.” Now, Biden’s protectors in the media are trying to sell him as a guy who is just a victim of events. I suspect this is not the selling point they think it is heading into the
midterm elections
and 2024.

They want us to believe that the catastrophic Afghanistan withdrawal and skyrocketing inflation just fell out of the sky. That gas prices rose all on their own, not because Biden shut down new oil leases and has issued the fewest new leases since the 1940s. That the supply chain crisis is happening not because the current transportation secretary is distracted/incompetent and gearing up to run for president in 2024, but simply because events are out of the administration’s control.

It’s not going to sell with the public.
