취임 1년 후, 바이든과 그의 행정부는 COVID-19 관리에 대한 맹렬한 타격에 직면하고 있습니다., 경제, 외교정책. Rubin은 월요일에 칼럼을 작성하여 다음과 같이 주장했습니다., “Biden may not find it so hard to turn the corner” on the bad press.
“But Biden has an opportunity to change the conversation. The voting rights debate in the Senate is over. Build Back Better is kaput as one giant bill. 그래서, beginning Friday, you could hear the tectonic plates creak. The ground was shifting. Biden was moving on,” Rubin wrote.
Rather than suggesting Biden was to blame for multiple setbacks in his administration, Rubin instead blamed that the media coverage is too focused on “실패” or things that he could never achieve.
“혹시, he has absorbed the advice of many Democrats: Don’t talk about failure or things you cannot achieve. You might not know it from the media coverage, but his first year still remains among the strongest of any modern president,” Rubin wrote.
She insisted that media is stuck in a “Biden is a failure” mode by refusing to move forward like Biden did.
“The media is stuck in ‘Biden is a failure’ mode, but Biden certainly is moving on, with successes on the economy, 코로나 19, infrastructure and the American Rescue Plan in hand. If inflation slows, Covid recedes and he gets a few more wins on important, discrete items in his domestic agenda, Biden may look a whole lot more formidable on his second anniversary,” 그녀가 적었다.
Biden’s recent failings including the inability to pass Build Back Better, rising inflation rates, concerns from the omicron variant of the coronavirus, and the growing tensions in Ukraine have caused widespread criticism.

“Biden also hit the economic gains in his first year — more than 6 million new jobs, wage gains for workers at the bottom of the income ladder and cutting child poverty by nearly 40 percent — and celebrated 210 million vaccinated Americans,” Rubin said.
