It takes a particular form of political cynicism to publicly thank the Ukrainian ambassador for her nation’s bravery — and stress within the subsequent second that we’ll do nothing to defend her nation with our army.
However then President Biden’s State of the Union speech was nothing however bumbling hypocrisy.
Begin with the truth that the mask mandate Nancy Pelosi lorded over her members for years was all of the sudden lifted the day earlier than the speech, exhibiting that “follow the science” was a bald-faced lie. Subsequent up, Biden begging for unity, then accusing Republicans of solely serving to the wealthy.
It was fairly the efficiency. After years of bashing Donald Trump, Biden stole his stump speech. He rebranded Build Back Better as Construct a Higher America, and received low-cost applause for claiming he was going to get companies to remain within the US. This after Democratic administrations have signed commerce deal after commerce deal which have taken industries to China and Mexico.
However you assume corporations can be glad to remain after Biden blamed them for inflation, claiming that rising prices in shops had been due to gouging, not provide points and his personal reckless government spending? Or that he’s instituting a “crackdown” on costs? Companies will lengthy for the friendlier shores of, we don’t know, Venezuela.
Seems “purchase American” was only a stalking horse for Biden’s actual agenda — making an attempt to get the huge social spending of Build Back Better handed. He’s nothing if not constant in his futility. Though Joe Manchin has shot him down repeatedly and once more.
So the State of Biden’s Union is delusional as a result of he’s not going to have the ability to decrease costs, he’s not going to have the ability to cross BBB, he’s not going to have the ability to hold corporations in America. Received’t get an immigration deal, actually not when he’s thrown open the border to millions. No quantity of lecturing will change that. In the meantime, nothing on vitality independence, which might assist our financial system and strengthen our overseas relations.
In the meantime, previous doddering Joe mentioned that he stood with the “Iranian,” not “Ukrainian” individuals, and guaranteed everybody we wouldn’t be preventing Ukraine, not Russia. All whereas Pelosi rubbed her fingers collectively behind him like she was Cruella de Ville eyeing a pet.
Then simply because he hadn’t gaslit America sufficient, he insisted we should always “fund the police” after Democrats used “defund the police” as a rallying cry for greater than a yr. Does he actually assume anybody will imagine that the celebration that caused crime nationwide to skyrocket is the celebration of regulation and order?
Joe’s plans boiled all the way down to nothing greater than “simply get it finished,” a phrase he mentioned about 153 instances. Cross my payments, simply get it finished. Treatment most cancers, simply get it finished. None of it would get finished.
It was an unserious speech for lethal severe instances. Lord assist us.
