The Biden Presidency



How anyone can still support him for the next presidency it is because they are against Trump, GOP or they are blind.

I have been around a lot of senior citizens but he tried to get up on his own and couldn’t. That is a clear sign of old age.

Yes, because Trump at 77 and if he wins will be in his 80s is the right choice. Sigh.

The simple fact is Biden/Trump as the 'best' America has to offer is just ...sad.

PS

De Santis is not it.

When Biden officially announced his re-election campaign, 7 of 10 Americans were against him seeking a second term across all political stripes. 6 of 10 Americans were against Trump seeking another term. It was near unanimous no one wanted Kamala Harris to become President so voting for one or another to prevent that is a motivating factor.

With both Biden and Trump being the probable party nominees, somehow the Americans are stuck in this circular logic pretzel that these are the only two choices.
 
I have no idea how he pulled this off, but it can’t be seen as anything but a win for Biden:

 

"'The reason why Xi Jinping got very upset in terms of when I shot that balloon down with two box cars full of spy equipment is he didn’t know it was there,' Biden said. 'That’s a great embarrassment for dictators,' he added, 'when they didn’t know what happened.'"

God knows what the other guy would say...

Blinken on his flight back....


Oh No Ugh GIF
 

“'The answer to your question is no,' Biden said during a White House news conference on Thursday when asked if his comments were damaging to U.S.-China relations, dismissing the riff as 'an incident that caused some confusion.'

'I don’t think it’s had any real consequence,' Biden added."

There were consequences..but they may not be real.
 
Israel: Steady US support gives Israel ‘cover’ to attack Jenin: Analysts

“We support Israel’s security and right to defend its people against Hamas, Palestinian Islamic Jihad, and other terrorist groups,”

Ukraine: Biden tells G7 leaders he supports joint training for Ukrainians on F-16s

"To date, the United States and our allies and partners have focused on providing Ukraine with the vast majority of the systems, weapons, and training it requires to conduct offensive operations this spring and summer. Discussions about improving the Ukrainian Air Force reflect our long-term commitment to Ukraine's self-defense,"

Taiwan: Head of Taiwanese Legislature Talks Self-Defense in Washington

.....More US style self-defense required?
 

"Fast-forward to 2023, and we see the current [P]resident confuse basic world events, praise rail projects that don’t exist, mourn war casualties that aren’t real, wander around stages and TV sets as if he is lost and struggle to make it through speaking engagements without getting flustered or exhausted. Yet, despite the press’s normal reflex to ask whether the [P]resident is up to the demands of the office, we in the media have responded to Biden’s bizarre presidency with little more than a bored shrug."

Does the use of the expression “ [P]resident “ imply that the author supports the conspiracy theories claiming that the election was stolen and Biden is not the legitimate president?

I added the brackets because the author just called it president with a lower case p. I can understand international media not using it as they often call them king Charles or his majesty instead of King Charles and His Majesty, but it's increasingly prevalent in North American media to omit that.

What would the President be without Hail to the Chief playing when he makes a formal entrance.

Bard (google’s GPT) says:
The implication of an author calling the president with a lower case "p" is that they are trying to convey a sense of informality or disrespect. This is because the title "President" is typically capitalized when referring to the specific person who holds the office of the President of the United States. By using a lowercase "p," the author is essentially saying that they do not view the president as a particularly important or respected figure.
This practice is not particularly prevalent in current North American media. In fact, it is generally considered to be unprofessional and disrespectful to refer to the president with a lowercase "p." However, there are some instances where it may be used intentionally to convey a sense of informality or disrespect. For example, a satirical news outlet might use a lowercase "p" to mock the president or to make a political statement.
Here are some examples of how the word "president" is used in current North American media:
  • "President Biden met with the leaders of Canada and Mexico today."
  • "The president's approval ratings have been declining."
  • "The president made a speech about the economy."
In all of these examples, the word "president" is capitalized. This is because the title is being used to refer to the specific person who holds the office of the President of the United States.
It is important to note that there are some instances where the word "president" is not capitalized. For example, if the word is used in a general sense to refer to the leader of a country, it would not be capitalized. For example, you could say "The president of France met with the president of the United States." In this case, the word "president" is not being used as a title, but rather as a general term for the leader of a country.
Ultimately, whether or not to capitalize the word "president" depends on the context in which it is being used. If the word is being used to refer to the specific person who holds the office of the President of the United States, it should be capitalized. However, if the word is being used in a general sense to refer to the leader of a country, it would not be capitalized.
 
Given artificial intelligence learn from the rubbish floating around on the Internet, I await the day when we are awash with confusion over than and then, or affect and effect because most human beings in the 21st century are too dim witted to deliver basic written English or really any written language.

Why are you such a minion Fwiffo Fwiffo ?
 

"Was the trip to Beijing a success? Well, by one very basic metric, yes.

The US and China are once again talking to each other, face to face, politely and respectfully, if not warmly."

That's a pretty low bar.
 

"On Thursday, TSMC Chairman Mark Liu said production of advanced microprocessors at its Arizona factory in the south west of the US would now begin in 2025."

That's not good for the 2024 campaign. Chip independence is crucial in the fight against China.
 

"In the weeks prior to tripping onstage, Biden used the shorter set of stairs to get on and off the presidential aircraft 37% of the time. In the past seven weeks he’s used them 84% of the time, or 31 out of the 37 times he’s gotten on and off the plane.
...
Biden seems to be preserving his energy in other ways. It’s customary on foreign trips for the president to schmooze with other leaders at dinners once the meetings are over. Less formal and structured than the events preceding them, the dinners offer a chance for leaders to bond, talk through differences or amplify a point. On two recent international trips, Biden has chosen to skip the nighttime socializing."

President Biden at age 80.
 
Seems like a risky move, but at least he didn’t try to brand the Covid relief funds:

Just saw this on Meet the Press. Besides being tired he is trimming down events before 10a. A few messages above in this thread said he won’t attend late night events and dinners at international gatherings. Okay. 6p-10a could be a 16 hour time gap. For the President?!
 

“I can describe the power of partisanship in a polarized age. I can explain the incentive structure that keeps Republican politicians in line behind Trump. I can tell you why Biden gets no credit for bringing the economy back from the depths of recession.

What? When were we in a recession?

I remember the last guy intentionally shut the economy down and this administration just lifted the restrictions, quarantines, and lockdowns. The economy went back to doing what it was doing before less a few unfortunate casualties due to lack of cash flow.
 

"Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., compared the Biden impeachment inquiry to Watergate as he voiced his support for it: 'Watergate was pretty bad, but this may be on par with that, maybe worse. So I’m sure we get the facts. Yeah, I’m in favor of an inquiry. I think we should get the facts. And I think it should be done, I emphasize, in public.'"

It's like Watergate...according to Josh Hawley.
 

"On the way home the next day, he stopped in Alaska to mark the anniversary of 9/11. There, he described visiting the wreckage at ground zero in New York one day after the terrorist attack. Yet on that day in 2001, he was in Washington, D.C., delivering remarks on the Senate floor. He and other senators traveled to the site more than a week after the attack. Was that a gaffe born out of fatigue, an honest mistake or an exaggeration from a president with a penchant for dropping himself in the middle of the action? The White House did not comment."
 

This administration seems to have a fascination in sending the commander in chief and President into harm's way and conflict zones.

At least it sounds like Schumer and Blinken will be back on US soil so it's not the entire US government leadership there.
 

"The bombings could increase the peril of Mr. Biden’s extraordinary trip, which will put a sitting U.S. president in close proximity to an active war zone. Intended to solidify U.S. support for Israel, the journey could make the President appear responsible for a potentially protracted fight he cannot control."

Good job. Air Force One can't turn back and look weak, and misses a big leg of the trip to get Arab neighbours to support accepting refugees, dispatch aid and open a humanitarian corridor.
 

"About four in 10 respondents in a Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted last week said the U.S. should support Israel’s position when given a range of options. In a separate Reuters/Ipsos poll earlier this month, roughly the same proportion agreed with a statement that Washington 'should provide weapons to Ukraine.'"
 
Who is the speech writer for the President these days? There are these subtle self-doubts.


"America is a beacon to the world. Still. Still..."


"As long as the United States stands — and we will stand forever — we will not let you ever be alone.”
 

"Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin testified to the Senate Appropriations Committee on Biden’s request for $106-billion to fund ambitious plans for Ukraine, Israel and U.S. border security.

Arguing that supporting U.S. partners is vital to national security, Biden requested $61.4-billion for Ukraine, about half of which would be spent in the United States to replenish weapons stocks drained by previous support for Kyiv.

Biden also asked for $14.3-billion for Israel, $9-billion for humanitarian relief – including for Israel and Gaza – $13.6-billion for U.S. border security, $4-billion in military assistance and government financing to counter China’s regional efforts in Asia."

Looks like Taiwan got reduced to $4b.
 

"The top Senate Democrat said the Republican bill would be dead on arrival in the upper chamber, even if it passed the House."

So does he need to veto it if the Senate will kill it? Or is this another we need to beg Joe Manchin.
 

“He [Biden] did all these historic things. People don’t know it yet, and they’ve got to take this year to drive that.”

You can do a lot of things but you have to do the right things at the right time. Otherwise you look like you aren’t doing anything.
