Those words came roaring back to me today when I was reading an article from last Wednesday in USA Today. It was really amazing when you think about it. There have been more deaths in 2021 from COVID-19 than in 2020.
I think I need to repeat that.
There have been more deaths in 2021 from COVID-19 than in 2020. Last year, there were 352,000 deaths from COVID-19. So far this year there have been 352,000 and we are adding about 500 deaths per day nationwide. That means that 2021 will be deadlier than 2020.
And Joe Biden uttered those words in a tweet last year during the campaign. The fact of the matter was, he was telling the truth. He had a 200 page plan that someone on his team (not him) developed on how to defeat COVID. The problem was that about 195 of those pages were taken from the Trump plan, and the other five pages didn’t work. The plan was deep-sixed about two weeks after he got into office and read Trump’s plan.
This is just one more thing that Joe Biden has failed at. The list gets longer and longer every single day. In fact, while dealing with COVID was the thing America felt Joe was doing better than Trump, that number is slowly slipping away. When idiots like Dr. (and I use that word loosely) Anthony Fauci says that “maybe” we can have Christmas together this year, it makes you realize that there is a segment of our society that wants this pandemic to continue at least past next November to preserve Democrat advantages in the House and Senate. Possibly they want it to extend past 2024, so that Democrats can maintain the White House as well.
Interestingly enough, Quinnipiac, which polls monthly on a number of presidential issues, and is rather liberal in it’s weighting, has found that the White House has now gone underwater on pretty much every issue. They list Biden’s approval rating at 38% making him the least popular president since presidential approval ratings were taken. Donald Trump’s was the worst at 41.1% prior to that. But it’s the other issues that are very telling.
As far as COVID-19 and his handling of it, America isn’t impressed with Joe’s plan. Now fully half of America feels he isn’t doing a good job with COVID. 48% felt he was doing a good job. That’s the first month that particular issue was underwater for Biden. But it’s the other issues that are telling even more.
55% versus 42% say Biden’s administration isn’t competent enough to handle the federal government. 23% approve of his handling of the crisis at the southern border. A whopping 67% disapprove. When you look at the economy, taxes, the military, and foreign policy, Biden’s approval numbers are all in the 30’s and his disapproval numbers are all in the 50’s for each category.
Only 44% approve of his leadership skills, while 56% do not. That’s an abrupt turn around from six months ago when 52% approved of his leadership skills. Also in April, 51% felt Biden was honest. 42% said he wasn’t. However, in the latest poll, only 44% believe in his honesty. 56% don’t.
The poll was taken the first four days of October from a liberal polling group. Want to think of what would happen if a conservative polling group had taken this poll?
In short, Biden has replaced Jimmy Carter and Bobo Obama at the bottom of the ladder in terms of the worst president in US history. And he was able to accomplish that in just nine months in office. Well, at least he holds the record for something!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
