No one, and I mean no one, had high expectations for Joe Biden. Conservatives that listened to Trump’s warnings knew he would be a disaster. “Moderates” were scared by Trump’s abrasively pro-American style, so they ran into the arms of the Ice Cream-licker in Chief, but they just wanted someone other than Trump, not necessarily Biden. Even liberals said they were settling for Biden; that’s not exactly the ringing endorsement that Trump received from real conservatives. The argument about Joe largely revolved around whether Joe was senile or simply…not that, but not all that energetic. So, all of America had low expectations for slow Joe.
But Good Lord has Bloody Biden somehow done even worse than expected!
We all expected the general inability to speak. He’s been known for his gaffes for years and could barely keep it together for the two debates…there’s a reason he stayed in his basement and refused to do a third one. But still, at least he made it through the somewhat long debates. Now, he can’t even give a couple minute-long press conference without just stumbling away and having his microphone cut off by his handlers so his senile ramblings aren’t heard for America.
Then there’s foreign policy. Obama said, “don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to fuck things up.” And, as Robert Gates, defense secretary in the Obama administration, put it, Biden has “been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.” So we knew he wouldn’t do a great job. But…wow,
Saigon round 2 the Kabul route was a disaster and disgrace. Literally anyone could have handled that better, even a rotting cabbage.
And then there’s the economy, which has never been a strong suit of the Big Government Democrats. They like spending, like taxation, are pro-regulation, and generally do the opposite of whatever a rational person who wanted to strengthen the economy would do. But all Biden had to do was nothing…the economy just needed to bounce back from the Covid response to look strong and for unemployment to decrease. But Joe couldn’t even do that. He decided to prove Obama right and fuck things up, so now even the easiest of economies to fix isn’t recovering.
There could be other examples, but those three paint a vivid enough picture of the Biden regime’s failings; we had low expectations, but he’s raced right past them on his plummet to the bottom.
