What is so good about Biden’s good news claims
Democrats and their media cronies are pushing a claim that Biden has achieved wonderful things for the American people, but the message is not getting out.
If you consider just how many times every day, Democrats and the media tout Biden’s claimed successes, one cannot conclude that the folks back home have not heard Biden’s good news message over and over.
According to Democrat theology, if the people knew of all those wonderful things Biden and Democrats claim to have done, the election polling numbers would be trending in their favor. But they are not.
What Democrats and the left-leaning media cannot – or will not – consider is that the people may not agree that all those things Biden did – and many things he does not brag about – are good news.
The first problem for Democrats is that there is a lot of bad news for Biden to offset the alleged good news. There is the inflation … product shortages … crime …. border crashers … a drug epidemic … school indoctrination … nutty and dangerous identity politics … Afghanistan … OPEC+ sticking it to Biden … anti policing by Democrat office holders … etc… etc…etc…
The hyperbolic claims of insurrection … coups … and voting suppression … the end of democracy … are obviously not selling well among we the people no matter how hysterical the reporting from the left gets.
With all that running against them, Democrats hoped that the overturning of Roe v. Wade would be a game-changer. As I noted in several commentaries, abortion is not an issue that drives votes except for a very small number of single-issue folks on both sides of the partisan divide. It never has been the issue to decide an election – and will not be this time.
Just look at the polls and you will see abortion way down the list of issues that will drive the vote. Inflation is number one.
All that is left is the effort we see as Democrats and the media desperately try to pump life into the good news claims. They basically are talking about the passage of several bits of legislation.
Democrats speak of the “benefits” of those actions – but the voters see the downside. If you are worried about current and future inflation, you may be inclined to see all the money spent on the Biden legislation – estimated in the $4 trillion dollar range – as a contributing cause of the inflation.
Forgiving student debt is a double-edged sword – and there may be more opposition than support.
The promise to reduce medical costs will not be seen for some time, if at all – and by then inflation will overtake the benefits, as it has with the wage increases for which Biden takes credit. It will also take time for the jobs program to produce real jobs.
You may recall how President Obama said jobs were “shovel-ready” in conjunction with his jobs program – and they were not.
Sorry, Mr. President. Your problem is not that voters have not heard of your good news programs. It may be they are not necessarily seeing them as good news.
So, there ‘tis.
