On a very basic and human level it has been disgraceful to watch Biden and his cronies so obviously use the tragic suffering of the Ukrainian people for his own political gain. Biden is draping his own failure, his own very conscious and stated choice to crush domestic energy production with the Ukrainian flag. But it’s actually much worse than that.
Poll after poll shows that Americans, on a bipartisan basis, overwhelmingly support Ukraine in this conflict, even if there are differences in what form that support should take. Joe Biden has chosen to throw a hand grenade of domestic partisanship into the middle of that unity. At a time when Americans should be focused on the war, and what it means for our nation’s evolving role in world affairs, Biden is scoring ugly, cheap, political points.
