Biden has no answers, gives no cause for hope in presidential news conference

Sadly, on the eve of the one-year anniversary of his inauguration, President Biden provided no cause for hope. The president had no answers for struggling Americans who are losing faith in government or for those concerned about his competency and mental fitness.  The main takeaway from Wednesday’s question and answer session at the White House is unmistakable: the malaise and uncertainty we’re all feeling are real.    

First of all, Americans are not better off today than they were a year ago. Over 450,000 of our countrymen and women have died from COVID-19 on Joe Biden’s watch, and on Wednesday the president continued to cause confusion about vaccines and boosters. The president characterized the COVID-19 pandemic as a job not yet finished, but millions of Americans think the situation has become worse since last year –  and they’re not wrong.


In addition to failing on his promise to “shut down” the virus, Biden made clear he has no clue how to fix our exploding inflation crisis.  When he said over and over Wednesday that the best way to fix inflation was to pass his multi-trillion-dollar socialist wish list – which is falsely labeled “Build Back Better” – no one seriously believed him.  

Furthermore, the world shouldn’t sleep well tonight knowing that aggressive adversaries like Vladimir Putin will take advantage of weak statements from Joe Biden like when he wondered aloud about “minor incursions” into Ukraine.  This irresponsible rhetoric only emboldens the Russian president.  

The malaise and uncertainty we’re all feeling are real.
