Dave Scott: Biden makes ’62 Mets look good

“Can’t Anybody Here Play This Game?” exclaimed frustrated New York Mets baseball Manager Casey Stengel about his hapless 1962 expansion team, a laughable, amicable bunch of loveable losers that became part of sports lore, that ultimately proved worthy of their fans’ tolerance and patience. 

Unlike Stengel’s “loveable losers,” the duds populating the Biden administration are not charming underdogs deserving of support and loyalty. Just the opposite. Recent polls indicate that this crowd is as popular as a gravel omelet. 

There is nothing cute or enduring about their ineptitude, venomous attitudes, and dishonesty. The full extent of Biden’s idiocy was on public display when he called Kyle Rittenhouse a white supremacist during his trial then said he was “angry and concerned” by the 17-year-old’s “not guilty” verdict.

Recent polls have consistently shown that Americans have had it up to here up with Biden’s bumbling ineffectiveness that’s leading to soaring crime, increased regulations, higher taxes, larger government, an impotent military, belittling of religious faith, massive illegal immigration, political indoctrination of their children, curtailing Second Amendment rights, higher consumer prices, a scarcity of goods, speech codes, massive foreign policy blunders, and abuse of the justice system. 

Biden, his handlers, and the leaders of the Democrat Party are guilty of more than ineffectualness, mediocrity, lying, and abject failure. They’re psychotic in the causes they embrace. 

If allowed to continue on their current path they’ll ensure that future generations of Americans will have duel experiences never anticipated – poverty and misery. To paraphrase Republican Louisiana Senator John Kennedy, Biden and Kamala Harris are the reasons space aliens won’t talk to us. 

Voters have had it and it looks like the 2022 November elections will usher in a tsunami of Republicans making Biden a lame duck and powerless president.

The Dems will do everything they can to keep the bumbling mentally flaccid geezer on life support as there’s no way they can let the even more unpopular and incompetent on-deck batter, Harris, come to the plate. As a result, China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, and Islamic terrorists will feel emboldened. The new Republican majority will have to find ways to do major damage control until 2024. 

Following is a partial list of the disastrous messes Biden has created in only 10 months: 

Covid: Biden botched the Covid epidemic from the beginning saying Trump was the problem, then took credit for Trump’s “warp speed” vaccine turnaround. It’s getting even worse for Biden as the White House now realizes it’s looking absurdly bad with the forced mandates Biden once said he’d never require. 

Economy: President Trump’s fiscal policies incentivized businesses to invest, hire and produce more in the U.S. As a result, American businesses boomed while other countries faltered. Joe Biden reversed all that and the economic damage he’s done and continuing to do is astounding.

Inflation is rampant, the highest it’s been in more than 30 years. According to government figures, the price of fuel oil has risen by 59% in the past 12 months, gasoline by 50%, and home-delivered natural gas by 28%. The cost of new cars and trucks is up 10%, used cars and trucks 26%, car and truck rentals 39%. Rents and housing an increasing at breakneck rates, a pound of chuck roast went from $5.75 to $7.40, eggs, butter, etc. are all increasing as you read this.

There’s nobody to help. Biden’s cabinet is jam-packed with fools and incompetents, whose pants are all on fire. 

The busted supply chain has ports backed up with many ships as far away as 150 miles. Even if he could help the inept Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was missing for two months celebrating the adoption of twins with his husband. When he reappeared, his response was to call the country’s roadways “racist.”    

When asked what should be done to prevent inflation from getting even worse than it is, Biden’s Secretary of Commerce, Gina Raimondo, said: “Biden should just keep doing what he’s doing.”

Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen keeps saying that inflation is “transitory.” Inasmuch as the amount of currency in circulation has risen 36% in under a year, meaning that every day the money in your pocket is worth less than it was yesterday. 

Perhaps the most absurd Biden nominee is Saule Omarova, an unqualified, admitted Communist, Soviet-educated woman nominated to be Comptroller of the Currency. She has called for the federal government to “bankrupt” the oil and gas industry in order to address climate change and called the banks that it would be her job to oversee “an asshole industry.”

She has also refused to hand over her thesis titled “Karl Marx’s Economic Analysis and the Theory of Revolution” to members of the banking committee. Oh, did I mention that she has been arrested for shoplifting hundreds of dollars of merchandise from T.J. Maxx? I didn’t make any of this up.

Immigration: Illegal entries into the U.S. grew to 1.7 million so far this year according to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the highest number ever recorded. They are expected to exceed two million before the end of 2021. 

These mostly uneducated, illiterate, and many Covid-infected illegal aliens are being transported by the Biden Administration to various U.S airports under cover of darkness where they are straining education, housing, and medical resources in the communities where they are being dumped. (BizPac Review broke the story of these government-sponsored flights in August). Border community facilities are already on the verge of collapse due to the strain of hordes of illegals, many with criminal records. 

Americans may sympathize with them but that doesn’t mean they want to adopt them and be charged with their upkeep. 

Education: The Virginia election yanked the covers off the left’s lies about Critical Race Theory and education enraging parents. Attorney General Merrick Garland was 100 percent wrong issuing his politically directed school memo, then lied to Congress about it proving he is nothing more than a disgraceful political hack who sicced the FBI on America’s parents.

Energy: When Biden took office in January the U.S. was energy independent. Gasoline was about $2.00 a gallon, even less in some areas, and the U.S. was exporting oil, natural gas, and coal. The energy sector created more than 10 million jobs. Biden immediately slammed the brakes on that and is now begging OPEC to increase production because of the calamity he created. Brace yourself this winter as heating oil and natural gas prices are skyrocketing and expected to be 30-40 percent higher than last winter. 

Biden reentered the outrageously stupid Paris Climate accords and is taking orders from a teenage Nordic nitwit, Greta Thunberg. Speaking of nitwits, Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm thinks rising gas prices are hysterically funny. When, in the wake of gasoline prices soaring by over 50%, she was asked if there was anything she could do about it she channeled Kamala Harris’s witch’s cackle. 

Thinking green renewable energy is obtainable in 10 or 20 years is idiotic. The country isn’t anywhere close to replacing fossil fuels. It’ll happen eventually, with the advent of new technologies but not anytime soon. 

Biden’s efforts to cripple an entire industry, putting us at the mercy of our enemies to support a political narrative is criminal. 

Foreign Policy: Biden’s disgraceful surrender didn’t end the war in Afghanistan, it emboldened terrorists and other American enemies. In addition, the number of Americans still left behind in Afghanistan is estimated at more than 400 plus hundreds of permanent residents. Biden lied and committed a vile betrayal of citizens and allies. 

Crime: In the aftermath of the protests and riots following George Floyd’s death in Minneapolis in 2020, resignations and retirements of cops have gone hand in hand with an explosion of homicides, robberies, and rapes in America’s major cities. Shoplifting and looting are practiced on an industrial scale without prosecution and left-wing prosecutors are releasing felons as quickly as they are booked. 

Americans want nothing to do with Biden’s “Build Back Better” nonsense. They want him to put the country back the way he found it. As soon as the U.S. is shed of the double-play combination of Biden-to-Harris-to-grandstand the better.
