Joe Biden‘s message and the promise he made to the American people from the beginning of his campaign for the presidency was that he was going to ‘heal and restore America’s soul.’
Over and over again on the campaign trail, he spoke and pleaded with the American people in an effort to convey that he alone was the antidote to the divisive chaos of the Trump years.
He promised to be a president for all Americans and to usher us out of what was one of the most divided times in American history.
We all know he hasn’t done that.
By any metric, America is becoming a worse place to live, work, and raise our children.
The Fourth of July promise of freedom from Covid was little more than an ill-advised photo op.
A new Gallup poll just released Monday shows that in 2021, Republicans went from a 9-percentage point deficit in party identification to a 5-point lead. It is the biggest advantage for Republicans since the 1994 ‘Republican Revolution.’
Biden promised to be a president for all Americans and to usher us out of what was one of the most divided times in American history. We all know he hasn’t done that.
And despite Democrats constantly calling every Republican ‘racist,’ a new Quinnipiac University poll shows Joe Biden’s approval rating has collapsed among Hispanic voters and is now lower than his rating among white voters.
If people on the left don’t want to believe seasoned political analysts on how and why the direction of America is a disaster under Biden, they will be very hard pressed to ignore the sheer breadth of signs showing where Democrats are bleeding voters.
If I were working for a principal with this kind of reaction polling-wise, I would be nothing short of panicking – trying desperately to come up with an emergency strategy while there is still time.
Instead, as we head into midterms, the White House cast of characters from Chief of Staff Ron Klain to the ever-snarky Jen Psaki seem to have no new ideas at all.
At least Kamala Harris is working on her rebrand. Good luck with that!
There is very little left to straighten out the Biden administration’s failing agenda and PR problems. So instead, they’re doubling down on division.
It was particularly disheartening to see President Biden making a bizarrely vitriolic and hubristic speech in Georgia, where he attacked Republicans but also his fellow moderate Democrats Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema by attempting to link anyone who is against him — on issues like voter ID — to segregationists like George Wallace and Bull Connor.
Even Democratic Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin conceded that President Biden ‘may have gone a little too far with his rhetoric.’
In the eyes of President Biden and his administration, if you do not support changing the Senate filibuster rules to pass stalled voting and election legislation, you are comparable to some of the most reviled villains of our past.
It is worth noting that there are other Democratic senators such as Jon Tester, Mark Kelly, Maggie Hassan and Jeanne Shaheen, who were also signaling that they ultimately wouldn’t support the repealing of the filibuster.
After deploying the same tactic literally hundreds of times in the previous administration, Democrats now call it racist, and they have resorted to trying to repeal the filibuster because they don’t have the votes to pass their voting bills without it.
But in another sign of their hypocrisy, they are even using the filibuster themselves right now to block Ted Cruz’s Russia sanctions bill.

One of the founding principles of our Constitution was to avoid the tyranny of the majority. This can’t be overstated.
One of the perils of conflating freedom and democracy is that people have forgotten the downside of government if you can’t just get what you want with 50 plus one.
The promise of a united, bipartisan Biden-era has been revealed as a con and a lie. If you disagree with him or his policies, you are no better than racist segregationists.
No great president in history has ever inspired his nation by accusing them of being comparable to the worst kind of figures in American history if you disagree with them.
The cynical part of me knows deep down he is just doing this to placate his base, but you cannot win elections or hearts and minds by simply playing to one audience.
And as for restoring civility and dignity to the office?
This speech proves Joe Biden isn’t interested in being a president for all Americans – just the ones who agree with him.
