The economy is considered by many to be the number one issue heading into the midterm elections and, as Republicans appear poised to win big in November, President Joe Biden’s preemptive blame game for his failed leadership was too much for the GOP to let pass unaddressed.
Friday, Biden appeared in the Roosevelt Room to tout “historic deficit reduction” yet again while denying the enormity of excess spending that added over $4.8 trillion to the national debt since he took office. With inflation showing no signs of letting up and gas prices threatening to spike again after mismanagement of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve resulted in an artificial drop, only now when Republicans are set to put a halt on his managed decline of American prosperity did the president acknowledge the peril the economy is in.
“The Republican leadership in Congress has made it clear they will crash the economy next year by threatening the full faith and credit of the United States for the first time in our history,” Biden claimed, “putting the United States in default unless, unless we yield to their demand to cut Social Security and Medicare.”
Denying the facts has been a hallmark of the president’s administration, and Republicans who’ve been clamoring to unleash the full might of American enterprise, especially in the energy sector, weren’t about to allow their “Commitment to America” to get smeared ahead of any attempt to dig the economy out of the hole the progressive agenda had made.
They know what’s coming. They are setting the groundwork up to blame the Rs for his disaster.

Holy crap! This can’t be real.
HIS administration has literally crashed our economy.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) also chimed in, “He and other Ds have already accomplished that,” while REACH Digital CEO Jason Howerton added, “If I was advising Democrats, I’d tell them to be a little less obvious about this shameless plan to blame Republicans for how bad things are going to get next year.”

Which means Biden and the Dems know the economy is gonna tank next year and they’re gearing up to pin it on the GOP.

The Spectator’s contributing editor Stephen L. Miller spoke up and wrote, “Biden knows a full blown recession is coming next year. This is him trying to get out in front of the blame and everyone knows it.”

The president’s embrace of a revisionist future came with his continued peddling of revisionist history as he disregarded the actual state of the economy that he inherited from former President Donald Trump despite the massive setbacks from the COVID lockdowns.
“Look at what I’ve inherited and what I’ve done!” he said prompting RNC Research to point out “When Biden took office, inflation was at 1.4% and gas prices were at $2.39/gal. Today, inflation is at 8.2% and gas prices are at $3.82/gal.”
Fear monger at the point we are now every time Joe Biden gets up to speak you can bet your bottom dollar that things are the exact opposite of what he says he’s a pathological liar he’ll do anything to save a few votes for the midterm

How can anyone listen to this guy? Nothing is his fault. He blames the consequences of his parties decisions on everyone else.

While many were focused on what Biden’s remarks were really saying about the current state of the economy that he has frequently denied with word games and parsed definitions, political commentator Ann Coulter took a different analysis and read into how the president’s warnings translated should Republicans muster enough control to enact their policies.
“I love Biden warning Americans that if they vote Republican, they’ll go back to the economy under Trump,” she wrote before quipping, “PLEASE NO, ANYTHING BUT A BOOMING ECONOMY!”

PLEASE NO, ANYTHING BUT A BOOMING ECONOMY!
