Current polls present President Joe Biden sitting at a dismal 38% approval score and Vice President Kamala Harris at an equally, however unsurprisingly, miserable 28% approval score simply 9 months into their phrases.
Even with the military of political propaganda retailers,or, dare I say, “journalists”,vehemently opposing former President Donald Trump and supporting Biden and his Democratic colleagues, Trump’s approval score was nonetheless about the identical at round 38%.
What does this say concerning the present management of our nation? Ought to we merely chalk this as much as a contentious, all-or-nothing political local weather? Or is it one thing extra basic?
When a brand new president takes workplace, many people and media pundits will debate for hours about their expectations for him after which criticize him primarily based on his skill, or lack of ability, to fulfill these expectations. However I’ve a unique perspective.
I don’t count on however reasonably hope that our president will perform his duties in the most effective pursuits of america and function a job mannequin for us all. That has at all times been my hope. But, with the Biden administration, I’m underwhelmed and intensely upset with Biden’s job, like many who’ve voted in opposition to him and for him.
At each flip, it appears, Biden is asleep on the wheel. The person was elected to steer probably the most highly effective nation on the earth, but as a rule, he has didn’t do the best of issues.
I cannot say that Trump is the polar reverse of Biden, that in each respect that Biden has failed, Trump succeeded; no man and no president is ideal.
However a minimum of when individuals laughed at Trump, he fought again, and regardless of what the media led you to imagine, the person was feared, not for him being “unhinged,” as they mentioned, however for his braveness to struggle again.
Certainly, there have been many Democratic presidents who proved themselves on the world stage; I can admit that. However that’s as a result of I don’t imagine that the first situation rests solely with political events; as a substitute, it’s about doing what is correct for our nation.
This nation is being harmed by partisan politics. We quarrel at each flip, shunning pricey mates and shut colleagues for holding opposing political viewpoints. It’s human intuition to carry agency to at least one’s beliefs and to not give in when they’re challenged.
Regardless of what the media and far-left commentators would have you ever imagine, subscribing to at least one viewpoint doesn’t subscribe you to others. A Democrat would possibly maintain a “Republican” viewpoint, and vice versa. That’s utterly acceptable.
But at present, merely expressing one other social gathering’s viewpoint places you on the other facet of the individual with whom you disagree. In fact, that’s not the case, however our president might attempt to make you imagine in any other case.
Fairly than lead a nation, the president has been relegated to a place of appeasing his base. He has taken a tough stance to appease the far left.
We’d like a president who cares for everyone no matter their social gathering affiliation and who will make powerful choices in the most effective pursuits of our nation, even when it’d hurt him in the long term and displease those that assist him. I don’t imagine that Biden is doing that.
I imagine that each Biden and Harris are doing what’s finest for them, not for us. However perhaps I’m flawed; perhaps they’re simply dangerous decision-makers. In both case, their approval scores are telling of their failure to successfully lead our nation, even with probably the most influential individuals behind their backs.
Democrats ought to brace themselves for midterm carnage in 2022, and so they can blame it on their radical socialist agenda and Biden’s devastating and steadily declining ballot numbers.
The majority of People don’t fall into both excessive. Most individuals are centrists who need politicians to work collectively, however this hasn’t occurred to date.
Biden campaigned as a unifier, somebody who might deliver the nation again collectively, however that hasn’t occurred. Issues look to be precisely as polarized as they have been earlier than, if no more so in some respects.
A big query that continues to be is whether or not Biden is fully accountable for this. I might say that the media has performed an equal half within the division of our nation. In spite of everything, how can individuals not be enraged when celebrities and politically influential individuals broadcast disgusting and provocative anti-opposing-party rhetoric into the privateness of our properties 24 hours a day, seven days per week? One might argue, “flip off the information,” but this rhetoric permeates almost each type of media these days.
Partisanship and tribalism are going to destroy our nation if we don’t get management of it. Our nation can’t survive persevering with on a path of mistrust, hate, and anger. Political leaders suppose an excessive amount of for themselves and never sufficient about their accountability to the individuals.
