He says he didn’t overpromise! No he just over lied like he normally does… This man is a national embarrassment. Again Biden was adamant he hadn’t “overpromised” in his first year in office as he held his first press conference of 2022 on Wednesday, but he acknowledged that one of his signature pieces of legislation, Build Back Better, must be downsized in order to get parts of it through Congress. This from the same moron who said he would cure cancer, and end the Covid pandemic. Two things he has yet to do.
“It’s pretty clear to me that we will need to break it up,” Mr. Biden said.
During the almost two-hour press conference, Mr. Biden also defended Vice President Kamala Harris and affirmed that she would be on the ticket in 2024, despite the rash of negative headlines she has weathered as she is by far the worst VP this nation has ever had. This and Biden being the worst President makes us look weak to our enemies, and a not of any help to our nations allies who need us now more than ever.
“I did put her in charge (of voting rights) and I think she’s doing a good job,” Mr. Biden said. One of the many lies he said while standing up there looking like a lost old man. One who’s mind is made of Alpo dog food from the looks of it. His press conference coincided with remarks by Senator Joe Manchin, one of the two Democrats blocking the legislation – he was speaking on the Senate floor about his objection to a rules change that would allow Democrats to pass voting rights legislation with only 50 votes.
In addition to his stalled legislation in the Senate, Mr. Biden’s press conference is being held as a CBS News poll released Sunday showed he had a 44% approval rating, and 50% of Americans are “frustrated” by his presidency so far.
The president, who was defiant during portions of the press conference, said he doesn’t “believe the polls.” On Afghanistan, which marked the start of the decline in his approval numbers, Mr. Biden said “there is no way to get out of Afghanistan after 20 years easily. Not possible no matter when you did it. And I make no apologies for what I did.” How about saying you were wrong when you called the US drone strike that killed children, and civilians? The one that both you and General Mark Milley Vanilly called ‘righteous’ at the time. We all know it was one that went wrong.. Everything he touches turns to shit! Joe has yet to take responsibility for this, and he never will as this has been his way for 50 years.
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has said the midterm elections will be Mr. Biden’s “report card” on handling of the economy, immigration, and more, Mr. Biden told CBS News’ Nancy Cordes that his report card will be “pretty good.”
Mr. Biden said McConnell, who has kept all 50 Republicans in lock step against the president’s agenda, has said he would “do anything to prevent Biden from being a success.” As for the stalled voting rights legislation, Mr. Biden said he wasn’t prepared to discuss options like executive orders in detail.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has zeroed in on voting rights legislation, which is headed toward a doomed vote on Wednesday night. While the legislation has the support of all 50 Democrats, it would need 60 votes to move forward. Schumer has said he will push forward with a rules change to lower the threshold to 51 votes if it doesn’t pass, but Manchin and Senator Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona have both said they would not support the rules change, setting the vote up to fail.
On foreign policy, Mr. Biden said his “guess” is that Putin will invade Ukraine. Mr. Biden said Putin has “never seen” sanctions like the ones that would come if Russia further invades Ukraine.
Mr. Biden said the loss of life for Russians would be “consequential” if they further invade Ukraine. The president said he doesn’t think Putin wants a “full-blown war,” but said the Russian leader will test the U.S. and NATO as much as he can. Mr. Biden told reporters that he worries that the situation with Russia along the Ukrainian border “could get out of hand” because Ukraine borders several NATO countries.
“The only war that’s worse than one that’s intended is one that’s unintended,” Mr. Biden said.
The president said that he wants it to be clear to Putin that there will be “prices to pay that could in fact cost his country an awful lot.” Mr. Biden said if Putin invades Ukraine, it would be the “most consequential thing that’s happened in the world in terms of war and peace since World War II.”
Mr. Biden said he and Putin have previously talked about holding a summit “if there was reason to.” Mr. Biden was asked to clarify an earlier answer about the fairness of future elections if some states don’t reform their voting laws, and whether they in any way could be illegitimate if they don’t.
“Oh yeah I think it could easily be illegitimate,” Mr. Biden said, giving a hypothetical example of people saying the count was not legitimate and discarding votes after giving a hypothetical example from January 2021.
The prospect of potentially being illegitimate is related to not being able to get reforms passed, he said. Check out the video below of the full presser, and some comments including a nice roasting by Sean Hannity.
