Biden is Jimmy Carter

They obviously do. This what America looks like under weak leadership. Gas shortages, Middle East back to disaster, Inflation soaring, unprecedented crisis at the boarder. Destruction of the 2nd amendment. But hey at least the mean tweets are gone...

“Gas Shortages” - due to a cyber attack on some stupid east coast pipeline company and because apparently the President is in charge of a private company’s security measures

“Middle East Back to Disaster” - hasn’t checked in on the Middle East in the last... 1,000+ years

“Inflation Soaring” - welcome to economics

“Unprecedented boarder crisis” - that’s been going on for decades

“Destruction of the 2nd Amendment” - literally nothing has changed and you still have your guns and will always have them, forever

I do get your feelings, though, and don’t disagree with the emotions of them.

He's vaccinated and probably still wears his mask outside because a half dead president told him so.
Border crisis, gas crisis, middle east crisis, home prices through the roof. Lumber up 77 percent. Inflation up, food prices up. Terrible jobs report. It's been 4 months. Who's the real bumpkin son??
You see what you want to see then. I thought Jared Kushner fixed the Middle East? Lumber and home prices were up way before 1/20/21. Unemployment is the lowest since the pandemic and the stock market is higher.

Imagine if he said Covid cases would soon be at zero when instead 600,000 people would die?

I wonder if some of the cybersecurity budget that was diverted for the wall could have helped prevent the pipeline cyber attack?

"Biden compares quite favorably with every other president after Franklin Roosevelt," said Max J. Skidmore, University of Missouri-Kansas City political scientist. "Not only has he accomplished many things quickly — most of them are highly significant." https://www.politifact.com/article/2021/apr/26/evaluating-president-joe-bidens-first-100-days-off/

Oh, a socialist political scientist likes the tax and spend liberal democrat POTUS. What are the odds? Quite high actually. Biden has been a terrible president his first 100 days and the "covid is over" presser was to try and save face from one of the worst starts for a presidency since WW2.

What objective criteria are you using to say the worst starts for presidency since WW2?

In his first week in office, Biden:
-halted the Keystone XL pipeline
-imposed a 60-day suspension of new oil and gas leasing and drilling permits on federal lands unless the Interior Department's leaders approved them.
-then he went a step further by ordering a moratorium on new oil and gas leases on federal land and water areas.

Liberals: "OnLy A gOoBeR wOuLd TrY tO bLaMe BiDeN".

There's a reason why gas prices have been steadily increasing since Biden was installed by the Dims.
You are right there is a reason. After the collapse of the price of oil due to plummeting demand, demand has increased which brought the prices back to where they were.
Texas power grid can't weather a little cold closing refineries for an extended time.
Russian hackers hack into another private company's week security causing a primary pipeline to shut down for an extended time.

The keystone pipeline had yet to be built it has 0 impact on any of this as it was just for Canadian tar sand oil to get exported anyways.

I think the above factors are 100x more of the cause than what gibberish you posted.

Terrible? Joe Biden and his administration just ended COVID. The Democrats have done an excellent job and it’s only going to get better once they pass their infrastructure bill.

Ended Covid with Trump's vaccines. If it was up to the Dims we would have been in a mask wearing lockdown for 3 years waiting on the vaccines.

I personally enjoyed lockdown. Obviously happy people aren’t getting sick and dying, but the lifestyle was great.

Trump made a vaccine? Interesting. Surprised his minions are refusing to take it, since he made it an all.

Neither President made the vaccine but the one in office wants more credit than he deserves..

The Dem’s were the one that didn’t want any football to be played till after the election...
It's par for the course for politicians to plant a flag and declare victory. It is political theater. I'm just amused by the folks who are desperate to give Trump credit for something (and to his credit he did push hard for a vaccine) and yet somehow they fail to recognize that a sizable portion of the Republican base refuses to get vaccinated because they think it's a load of crap. It's like the people who seethed over Obamacare, then balked when they realized they might lose their ACA benefits.

I can tell you as a person who has dealt with vaccines, vaccine companies and federal regulations that IF not for Trump, we would still be months away from having a vaccine. Trump deserves a tremendous amount of credit for getting the vaccine produced and tested as quickly as we did. The career bureaucrats at the NIH and CDC did everything they could to delay it's release until after the election.

Gas prices were going up quickly long before the pipeline hack. There is no doubt that higher gasoline prices fits well with the left's agenda to reduce fossil fuel consumption. The east coast pipeline hack has just accelerated the rate of rise but the increased prices will be with us to stay. You can't increase the dollar supply by 40% and expect your prices to stay the same for a globally traded commodity. Everybody but the elites are screwed in the long run by those stimulus payments and the government spending. What was the saying from Animal Farm? All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others.

We'll see. I think your "analysis" lacks important context, like the impact of the Texas freeze on prices (was that a leftist agenda?). Remove the freeze and the hack and gas prices where I live are probably not much changed since the start of the administration. It just seems oversimplified and gratuitous to label everything you don't like a "leftist agenda" when you know that nothing is that simple.

It's not hatred for Trump, or love for Biden. It's the fact that nothing is that simple. Y'all pretend like the day Trump stepped in office everything was golden, and the day he left it was a disaster. That is just a woefully oversimplified take on how political/economic systems work.

Personally I think the Trump administration did a great job accelerating vaccine development and don’t hesitate to say so. But if you have an explanation for how the CDC bureaucrats got Trump’s closest ally Boris Johnson to hold off vaccinating the first person on the face of the Earth until more than a month after the US election, I would love to hear it. Plus every other country in the world waited until at least mid-December. You’ve told yourself (and everyone else you can find) that complete BS story so many times I’m sure you actually believe it.

I agree with you for the most part, but it is a little sketchy that Trump continued to push we'd have a vaccine by December and everyone called him crazy and Big Pharma wouldn't comment, but then literally the week after Biden won, it was announced a vaccine was on the way. I have no idea of the inner working of everything, but still looks suspicious. Either way, I've moved on and I'm just glad that it looks like we can go to sporting events this fall.

It's easy to make what seems like an obvious connection, and maybe there's something to it, but it's unlikely. First of all, these businesses really don't care who the president of the US is or isn't. In fact, they might have even preferred Trump. They have staging gaps to go through before the vaccines hit the market. Holding back to affect the outcome of the US election is improbable. Trump deserves credit for the vaccine, fo sho, but all the conspiracy "the world is out to get him" crap is so overplayed. It's amazing how the guy cast himself as the victim, yet also claimed to be always winning. And when I say amazing, I mean it was a brilliant political move that worked to perfection. People are still buying it.

Well, if I recall correctly when Trump was Pres and having these vaccines fast tracked under operation warp speed all the dummies on the left including Fauci were saying I don't trust anything that comes from Trump. I'll be real hesitant to get my shot. Then poof. Sleepy Joe is President and the left is saying get your shot. Get vaccinated. It's gonna be OK. The hypocrisy and politics is mind boggling. But when you're dealing with scum like Cuomo, Schumer and Pelosi anything is possible.

Says the guy who can't spell. 😆 I think all those masks you're still wearing are cutting off essential air flow to your simple brain!!
There was a time when your overtly homo aggressive attacks on some nebulous thing you moronically consider to be "the left" annoyed me. But I've made peace with you, Simple Jack. You're like one of those dudes that gets roasted on Comedy Central for being so hilariously ignorant. Stay golden, Simple Jack.
