The most worrisome tenet of the Biden administration seems to be its lack of urgency, or enthusiasm for the job at hand.
Biden was a reluctant candidate, after all, having been convinced by the Democratic Party to run in 2020 only due to his ability to pull some votes from the middle of the road Trump voter who was growing tired of no. 45’s bombastic behavior.
And so, when he took office, Biden appeared to be largely uninterested in governing, quickly assigning his inefficient Vice President Kamala Harris to oversee some of the major crises facing our nation.
Biden would keep his eye on coronavirus, allegedly, but as we approach the one-year anniversary of his inauguration, it appears as though the President is pawning that off as well.
Critics on both ends of the political spectrum went full blast on President Biden’s claim Monday that states are responsible for solving the coronavirus crisis, pointing out Biden’s long history of claiming he would bring the country out of the pandemic.
They also noted Biden’s federal government has moved to impose vaccine mandates and requirements to wear mask while traveling on planes and trains – much to the chagrin of many Republican governors.
Critics did not pull any punches.
Christina Pushaw, press secretary for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, posted a montage of Biden’s statements saying that he would “shut down the virus,” concluding with his statement from Monday.
“What a difference a year makes,” Pushaw commented.
The GOP also called out Biden for his change in messaging.
“Joe Biden claimed he would shut down the virus. Now a year later when he failed to do so, he says there is no federal solution to COVID. Joe Biden is a hypocrite,” the party said from its official Twitter account.
The move comes as Biden’s approval ratings are taking a serious and troubling nosedive, and the Democratic Party looks to move away from his possible reelection in 2024.
