Mocked by Staff, Slammed by Senators, and Sliding in Polls, Biden May Be in Terminal Political Decline

AMAC Exclusive – by Pat Conroy

Biden

After only 8 short months, the honeymoon period for Joe Biden’s presidency is officially over. Crises on multiple fronts turned President Biden’s “summer of freedom” into a summer from hell. The botched withdrawal from Afghanistan that left 13 American service members dead, anemic economic numbers, and the reemergence of Covid have sunk President Biden’s job approval numbers to the lowest of his presidency. In the RealClearPolitics average, nearly half of all Americans (49.7%) disapprove of Biden’s job performance while only 45.2% approve.

Despite projections of confidence in public by the White House, it appears there is increasing anxiety inside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue about the future of the Biden presidency. According to new reporting from Politico, the situation has devolved so much that Biden’s staff can’t even bear to watch or listen to their boss when he speaks at events. “When Biden gives public remarks, some White House staffers will either mute him or turn off his remarks,” Politico reports. “It’s not that they’re indifferent to what their boss has to say. Indeed, their livelihoods are directly invested in it. Rather, they’re filled with anxiety that he’s going to take questions from the press and veer off the West Wing’s carefully orchestrated messaging.”

Regardless of the White House’s spin, it is a damning indictment of the President when his own staff does not trust him to speak to an overwhelmingly left-wing press corps. Biden’s political career has long been plagued by gaffes, dating back to his first failed presidential campaign in 1988, which went down in flames after an embarrassing plagiarism scandal in which he falsified his own family history.

During his 2020 campaign, however, Biden’s staff – with a major assist from the mainstream media and Big Tech – was able to coddle and cajole their candidate into the White House by having him appear as little as possible in public under the guise of “COVID precautions.” Biden instead opted for virtual and very small in-person events that were heavily choreographed by his staff. Now that he is in office, the American people expect a much higher level of transparency and are growing skeptical of Biden’s ability to do the job seeing as he can’t even face questions from friendly reporters without embarrassing himself.

In a poll released at the height of the Afghanistan calamity, a majority of Americans (52%) said they are not confident that Biden is physically or mentally “up to the job of being president of the United States,” compared to only 46% who said they were confident. Not without reason, Americans are starting to speculate whether it’s Biden’s staff who is controlling the decision-making rather than the Commander-in-Chief. According to findings in the same poll, only 39% of Americans think Biden is “doing the job of president,” while a staggering 51% believe “others are making decisions” for him.

Democrats in Congress, aware of the potential political fallout from the President’s collapsing poll numbers, are beginning to distance themselves from the leader of their party. In some cases, they are even outright challenging him in public.

Recently, Senator Joe Manchin explicitly announced his opposition to the $3.5 trillion socialist spending blueprint for Biden’s “Build Back Better” agenda. In an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal, Manchin bucked his party, writing that “some in Congress have a strange belief there is an infinite supply of money to deal with any current or future crisis, and that spending trillions upon trillions will have no negative consequence for the future. I disagree.” According to reporting, Manchin has told the White House he will support as little as $1 trillion of the package.

The White House would have voters believe Joe Manchin is an outlier in the Democrat Party and not indicative of any larger trend of eroding support, but he’s not the only Senator directly challenging President Biden.

Multiple Democrat Senators had sharp criticisms of Biden over his catastrophic Afghanistan pullout. Most surprising was the rebuke from the president’s loyal old colleague, Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal. In a press release, Blumenthal eviscerated the Biden administration for leaving American citizens behind in their evacuation efforts. “I have been deeply frustrated, even furious, at our government’s delay & inaction,” the statement reads. “I expect the White House & State Department to do everything in their power—absolutely everything—to make this happen. These are Americans citizens & Afghans who risked everything for our country. We cannot leave them behind.”

Blumenthal’s significant break with the administration suggests that even the staunchest supporters of President Biden are growing concerned about the position of their party after a summer of failure by the Biden White House. After the Trump administration handed Biden a strong foundation for a speedy economic recovery, relative peace in the Middle East, and three COVID vaccines produced in record time, Biden has squandered all of it in a matter of months. With polling showing that the American people are quickly losing patience with such ineptitude, and with Democratic lawmakers now openly criticizing the President, Biden’s political standing may be in terminal decline.

I feel he is the worst president we have ever had. He has no respect for the American citizen. Many folks are allergic to chemicals in the vaccines and cannot take certain ones. I think when he states things like ‘ If you are military get the vaccine or get out’ he shows his ignorance and lack of concern for American citizens. That is only one small area where I have discrepancies with this man. I did not vote for him and I never will. I feel he is not qualified to be president or in our government in any way. What he has done in Iraq is horrible and he should be in jail for that and the American citizens and helpers there who were left on their own is disgusting. ABANDONED. Also, leaving all our airplanes, jeeps, trucks, tanks, bombs, bullets and grenades and ammunitions and everything else for the enemy to use against us is horrible. Where was his mind and the minds of the other men, women and officers who were there. That is incredible!!! Where was the intelligence of these men and women as well as this president. He needs to be removed and NOW before we are all dead because of him.

There are only 4 ways to get Joe Hidin’ Biden out of serving as the functional POTUS. (1) Death (2) Physical injury Illness that triggers the step up of VP on a temporary basis: (3) Resignation; (4) Impeachment (which has as much chance as a canary flying to the Plant Pluto). In all 4 cases, the result would probably be worse or no better at best. When Joe Biden and CamelA HairIs, the Nation was in deep trouble. Warning … Fix the election system …otherwise this Nation’s decline will continue to be in a crash dive.

Biden, or those who actually call the shots will aggressively dole out a little here, a little there to console his supporters while continuing to accuse the prior administration. Just this week the gas prices actually went down in my part of the country. Of course this was due to the fact that the government released fuel from the national reserve supplies. But when that runs out we can always buy more from the Saudi’s or Iraq, or whoever. If the liberals can just confuse the weak minded supporters a little longer, we can hood wink the voters into voting the democrat/socialist congress folks back into office. The left is SO good at lies and the blame game. Almost makes you like them for that.

To me it doesn’t matter how “capable” or “competent” Biden is. We would be getting the same far left policies that we are getting now with Bozo or whoever it is running the show! And make no mistake, Biden is now a progressive leftist himself. All you had to do was read his platform on his website when he ran for president!

Exactly! It was all out there for anyone to read for almost an entire year in 2020. Unfortunately, too many people are either too lazy or apathetic to research what the various candidates were really running to do. The 2020 Democrat party platform was a complete roadmap of what they intended to do, if they ever got total control of both the Congress and the WH again. Well they did and they have been systematically implementing everything in the 2020 Democrat party platform step by step.

One has to wonder who and what motivated Mr. Biden to seek the office. It is unfortunate he is not his own man. Ignoring the border crises, the California malaise with housing, the lawlessness of blue states, seemingly an overall lack of thorough planning in foreign policy, an ego to bury the Trump administration by distraction and smokescreen of no truth, should drive us all to our knees in prayer to the Ancient of Days who created us all. For us, that understand this concept, opens our eyes to the evil of mankind’s nature – Romans 7 & 8. Those with hardened hearts are doomed to perish in their selfish confusing ways. Prayer will bring us peace and the strength to endure with He who overcame the world. However the Biden Administration came into office, they chose a path that continues to confuse their man-centered wisdom. Yet to the rest of the world, the evidence seems replete with disinformation, misrepresentation, and error in judgment.

“One has to wonder who and what motivated Mr. Biden to seek the office.” Answer: Money and power. He has always leveraged his past political offices, throughout his entire political career, for personal financial benefit and to gain more power. So he could then gain even more money from selling his higher position to various entities. It’s not some mysterious riddle or paradox. It’s very straight-forward.

Evidently our problem lies in the fact that we are outnumbered by the total cretins in our nation who are permitted to vote. Until they go away (not likely) or we outnumber them, we will be perpetually screwed. No nation should EVER have to put up with a moronic imbecile such as Biden. We are rapidly losing ground when in fact we desperately need a real leader to protect us and to advance the causes of the USA. That would be Donald J. Trump.

There is no way that 80 million + voted for Bumblin basement hiden Biden. Take away 20 million dead people, illegals, people that voted more than once, then you’ll know who the real winner was.

The wicked POS standing in the WH when he has know right to be there. He said it when he was running in the election-I don’t need your vote. The election was all in the works of being stolen. It was so blatant and yet here we are with this usurper in the WH. Christian conservatives run for office or become election officials to stop the obvious cheating by the democrats. Apply at city halls, town halls, etc. Don’t tell them that your Republican or Democrat they don’t need to know. If there is something out of line or amiss tell someone you trust in office about the irregularity. The cost of freedom is eternal vigilance. Americans we are in the fight of our lives for our country and our freedoms. Look at what this phoney has done so far that’s totally illegal so don’t think it’s going to get any better. Do whatever you can and it might cost you something!!! Is it worth it? Do you enjoy the freedoms you have had all these years without really deserving it!!! Fight like your life depends on it!!! Say “NO” to these illegal vaccines that are maiming and killing people and it’s totally hush hush to not let the public know about what is happening to people who are trusting someone(Biden) who has proven for 40 years that he is not to be trusted!!! WAKE UP!!!

Unfortunately, Biden didn’t reach “Terminal political decline” soon enough. I won’t speak to the legitimacy of the election that put him in the Presidency, but his political decline didn’t happen soon enough to keep him out of the oval office.

Stumblin, bumblin joe is a hypocritical, unknowing, uncaring pawn of “they”. He neither knows where he is, or who he is. He has never been the president or even vice president. He was chosen by the “powers that be” because he is a stupid, idiot, moron, who will do or say anything “they” tell him to do. “they” are destroying our Great Country.

I really doubt that 80 million people voted for this moron. They cheated. This is the Socialist’s way of not only controlling the most powerful position in the USA government, but also an attempt to control the massses of the American people.

Everything woke, everything liberal, everything democrat turns to a massive fecalfest but it’s Americans not democrats who pay the price! Sad that they choose to not believe in their country and want nothing more than to bring it down as they rule over the ruins but that’s the truth of what’s become the democrat party. Don’t believe it? Ask yourself how far have they sunk to go from “Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country,” to “Whaaaa! We deserve free stuff!” Not a single demoncrat can actually point out the horrible “white supremists” running around killing “people of color,” instead they use generalities of trigger words. Not a single demoncrat can tell you where the electricity will come from to recharge all the electric cars because it will take covering every square inch of this country to provide enough to support what we already use without adding millions of charging stations. Think they’ll have solar panels all over their multi-million dollar mansions or will the elitists be granted another pass from Sippy Cup joe? Notice the masks and social distancing at the Met gala that aoc used to promote “class equity?” Did you get your $35,000 ticket gifted to you like she did? Me either! Everything woke, everything liberal, everything democrat turns to sh1t!
