    Actually, he's done quite a bit.
    Just hasn't gotten credit for it.

    The infrastructure bill was huge.
    Americans tend to blame presidents for everything. Want them to fix everything, like they are magicians or kings.
    He's standing up to the Russians and China, fairly well...unfortunately, we're playing catchup.

    Looks like he's finished working with the GOP.
    At least he won't make the same lingering mistake Obama did.
    Do as you can. Act. Sell it.

    The hard part is getting it through Congress.
    The sells job needs to get better.
    Still, it's his first year. and got TONS of shit to deal with.

    Year 2...increase the speed and momentum.
    Ignore the haters and meh people.
    It is what it is.

    "What a stupid son of a bitch"
    hot mic moment !

    I like that ! I wish Biden would loosen his tie a bit more like that.
    I think if you want a ride out of your people you gotta make noise. It's why I liked Bernie so much. He was the only guy with a chance to combat trump.

    I don't see him doing bad overall but most of the noise still comes from the squealing Gang of Perverts. So he's got to combat some of that.

    I don't know wtf to do about Putin's aggression. I don't want to get involved with it.

    I like Biden's bluntness.

    We need more straight talk and less bullshit.

    Totally agree.
    Problem is so many have lost grip of what's straight reality and a giant machine pumping out BS and constantly questioning reality.

    How to bring back, deprogram, the cultists who've lost grip. Such a huge task because so many of them really are deplorable.
    You've seen Don Jr's "Deplorable" lapel pin ?

    No, I had to look it up. If Hillary had referred to NPD Trump's base as dunces, would have Jr worn a dunce cap?

    Ya know I wouldn't put it past him.
    I don't have the link but it looks like DJ has taken to drunk rambling on the net now.
    I saw it on utube but I think it was a clip off some other social media snagged for commentary.

    Cody does a good take on both the positives and negatives from Biden's first year.
    Biden wasn't really my guy at all so I agree with most of his takes.
    YMMV.

    Psaki to ya :D

    Can we offer ya a sarcastic comment???

    Biden did pick well.
    The Force is strong with her.

    Doocy is going to find wrong with whatever is done.
    It’s like Psaki has to deal with the class clown daily.

    Personally, I wish we could put him in the corner.
    If not the remainder of dunces that doubt just for the sake of doubting.

    Repeat…it’s not about “sides”, people are DYING!

    Biden's approval rating rises following Russian invasion of Ukraine — CNN Politics

    Why does it always take a war??? :rolleyes:

    Why can’t Americans stop being fickle and blaming everything on one person until they feel they need a LEADER?

    The steps he’s taken to repair the damage of T are impressive enough as it is.

    Then again, the media always sows doubt and debate…making one person the “responsibility”

    Nooo, Congress hasn’t had it’s act together for a LONG time. Much less other levels of government.
    (State, county, city, etc)

    And the excesses of many businesses can be a reason too. (Not all…but more than enough)

    I hear the conservative assmouths blaming the current inflation on Biden. What did they expect as businesses try to get back to normal, while demand still exceeds demand? Cost increases get passed along. They also never mention the last great inflation occurred 40 years ago under the future Republican God, Ronald RayGun.

    It's that time of year...

    The President and Vice President release their 2021 tax returns

    With this latest release, Biden has released 24 years of his tax returns.

    Trump is the only president (or vp) to repeatedly refuse to release any of his tax returns while in office (he released one partial return from 2005).

    I wonder where the Presidential Reform Act is? Mandate that they need to release their tax returns and see how many people will vote against this anti-corruption measure.

    It wouldn't get through...they've got their hands full right now.
    Mostly, they're going to focus on the primaries...and getting through that.
    From what I hear, the strategy is a huge rampup in getting Dem and Independent election officials at all levels. That's their defense angle.

    Biden has his hands full with Russia, cascading affects of that, pushing allies, restraining China and Turkey on the matter...and preventing ANY nukes.
    The Pentagon, State Dept, CIA, NSA, Dept of Energy and so on are all going wild on this.

    The Dept of Justice has gone to sleep

    I don't think Biden is "lo(o)sing it," public speaking has never been his strong suit. He lacks the ariculation & eloquence of Obama, and bombastic dynamic of NPD Trump.
