As our aging, scripted president travels around the country, he is trying to every day Americans’ concern about the economy. People are struggling under his administration, so he’s embarked on a cross-country tour to tell everyone that he didn’t cause inflation, Putin and the Republicans did.
Unfortunately for President Biden, no one is buying his excuses. The rate of inflation (8.2%) is one of the few numbers that are actually lower than his approval rating (36%) when it comes to handling the economy. Lower still are the poll numbers for his handling of inflation (28%).
Biden’s note-card talking points place the blame on everyone but himself. The litany of culprits, according to the president, begin with Putin’s war on Ukraine. The blame game continues through the Democrat’s usual suspects—greedy corporations, the pandemic, Republican pushback, and, yes, climate change.
Average Americans now struggling with higher food and fuel bills aren’t fooled. Of course, the bounce-back from the Covid pandemic created lots of demand before production and the supply chain could react.
However, most Americans can, unlike our president, keep the timeline straight. When they held their nose and voted for Biden, the inflation rate was at a manageable 2%. It began rising dramatically long before Putin invaded the country where Hunter Biden sold his influence to the tune of millions.
It was the madcap Democrat dump of a trillion-dollar government spending bill that added fuel to today’s inflation fire. Biden was warned by friendly Obama-era economic advisors, but he held out and would like to triple down on that spending with a coast-to-coast windmill farm and electric car charging stations at government expense.
The bad news about inflation is that economists predict it could continue throughout the remainder of 2022. But the silver lining is that it could stick around long enough to give the Democrats an epic defeat during the midterms.
