Despite what Biden, the White House, or Democrats say, we know the economy is in rough shape. Every time we fill up our gas tanks, go to the grocery store, or look at a stock market ticker, we are reminded of how poorly Biden has run the country.
As a matter of fact, Biden has ignored advice from his own Democratic generals who warned him not to brag about “achievements” (there aren’t any) and to have some “humility.”
Former Obama adviser David Axelrod wrote this to Biden before his SOTU speech:
“But, Mr. President, proceed with caution. Talk about the things you and Congress have done to help meet the challenges Americans are facing, for sure. Lay out your goals for the future, absolutely. Offer realistic hope for better days ahead. We desperately need it. But recognize that we are still in the grips of a national trauma. Polls show that the vast majority of Americans believe we are on the wrong track, and people will have little patience for lavish claims of progress that defy their lived experiences.”
Just a few months later, 7 out of 10 Americans believe the country is on the wrong track, but the White House says everything is perfect.
On June 3, 2022, Biden said while on vacation at Rehobeth Beach, Delaware, “Today, thanks to the economic plan and the vaccination plan that my administration put into action, America has achieved the most robust recovery in modern history just two years removed from the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.”
The President added, “My plans have produced the strongest, fastest, most wide-spread economic recovery America has ever experienced—with record jobs, record small busineses and wages rising.”
