Biden’s Big Blusternomic Clown Show
When your approval ratings have been deep underwater for two years, try bigger lies.
Reeling from the Supreme Court’s 6-3 affirmation of the 14th Amendment by striking down affirmative discrimination, the irrevocably incompetent Joe Biden and his equally inept economic clowns embarked on a national tour this week, ostensibly promoting the success of “Bidenomics,” a.k.a. the post-ChiCom Virus pandemic recovery of jobs created by the free-market economic policies of his predecessor, Donald Trump.
According to a White House memo outlining his talking points, “Bidenomics is both a winning economic strategy that is delivering results, and an approach that is strongly supported by the vast majority of the American people.”
We all know Biden is a “lying dog-faced pony soldier,” but this bogus BIG Lie blitzkrieg is colliding with the reality that only 34% of Americans approve of his economic policies. Moreover, the running average of presidential approval polling at RealClearPolitics, which we consider the most accurate of presidential polling, puts his approval at 42% — basically where it has been for more than two years. (Oh, and Kamala Harris is posting a record-low approval for any vice president.)
Could be Bidenflation!
That notwithstanding, Biden launched his tour by declaring: “Bidenomics is about the future. Bidenomics is just another way of saying: Restore the American dream.”
It is definitely about the future and suppressing the American dream.
Heritage Foundation economist EJ Antoni fact-checked Biden’s dog and pony show, noting: “For the average American family, they have seen their weekly paychecks go up on average 200 bucks, so that sounds really great. … The problem is that prices have gone up so much faster than wages. It’s one thing to say something that sounds good but it’s another thing to actually improve people’s lives, and we just haven’t seen that. Effectively their message is ‘don’t believe your lying eyes. You just can’t spend, borrow, and print trillions upon trillions of dollars and not expect negative consequences.”
What Biden won’t highlight as he and his minions spread out across the nation: Almost all economic expansion beyond the pandemic recovery is taking place under Southeastern governors who advocate free enterprise. Six states — Florida, Texas, Tennessee, Georgia, and the Carolinas — are now bigger contributors to the nation’s GDP than the Northeast Washington-New York-Boston corridor. Businesses and people fleeing disastrous Demo-controlled “blue states” brought with them almost $100 billion of income in 2020-21, and more than two-thirds of national job growth was in the Southeast.
All being said, as for how this all plays out in 2024, analyst Matthew Continetti notes, “Biden’s latest pitch for 'Bidenomics’ is an admission of weakness.” He adds, however: “Biden’s fate rests not on Bidenomics but on long-running trends in the electorate. Biden’s future depends not on his agenda, nor on his charisma, but on the anti-MAGA coalition that cost Republicans in 2017, 2018, 2020, and 2022.”
