Biden gets confused, blames Republicans for US economic disaster instead of Putin

Career politicians make a habit of laying accusations against their rivals and making promises they won’t keep before blending back in with the crowd. With more than 40 years in public service, President Joe Biden had grown accustomed to this routine but now seems to be finding out the hard way that the highest office in the land comes with a tad more scrutiny.

Biden has talked a big game at every opportunity drawing attention to his actions as “historic” and “record-setting” when attempting to take credit for job growth or for the sanctions against Russia that failed to deter the invasion of Ukraine. But when it comes to records that he is truly responsible for like the highest average price for gasoline nationwide, he thinks he can point the finger at Republicans to earn votes heading into the midterm elections.

“Republicans are doing nothing but obstructing our efforts to crack down on gas-price gouging, lower food prices, lower healthcare costs, and hopefully, soon, lower your prescription drug costs,” the president claimed in a tweet Sunday night absolving the Democratic majority of any responsibility. “This is not right. And that’s why this election is going to be so darn important.”

While corporate media may allow a baseless accusation like that to slide, conservatives were far from willing to roll over and take the blame for “Bidenflation,” especially since months of trying to do the same to Russian President Vladimir Putin obviously didn’t work.

It may very well have been the hope of the president and his Democratic colleagues that with the narrative changing to a different focus with each news cycle, as talking heads drive another attempt to zero in on the cause that will galvanize their voters, that Biden believes whatever is put out will be treated as gospel. When considering the low-information types featured in your typical man-on-the-street interviews that couldn’t tell you the name of the current vice president, he might be correct.

But the leader has to stand by his record and there is no shirking what has been done by Biden. Conservative activist Scott Presler summed up some of the claims fairly well noting the cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline, the COVID mandates imposed and encouraged and his bailouts abroad.

Others pointed out that Biden had repealed President Donald Trump’s prescription drug cost executive orders that had lowered the price of insulin, thus making him unquestionably responsible for what he blamed on the Republicans.

And the record still stands that no matter where Biden tries to shift the blame the American public is holding him accountable. CNN contributor Scott Jennings focused on the numbers showing 88 percent of the country feels we’re on the wrong track and Biden is struggling with around 38 percent approval.

With all of that, the most “historic” accomplishment Biden can point to is his self-own courtesy of a tweet from June 2020. “It’s hard to believe this has to be said, but unlike this president, I’ll do my job and take responsibility. I won’t blame others. And I’ll never forget that the job isn’t about me — it’s about you.”
