Most critics would agree that the honeymoon is over for Joe Biden with current approval ratings at 43% after a mere eight months in office and 40 months remaining on his four-year term. For those who have been paying close attention, most would also conclude that very little, if anything, has gone well in America under his watch and that his numbers will continue southward as long as he continues to talk and make decisions.

The first big mistake was his decision to develop a new policy to better serve the immigration process at our southern border. Recall that border control measures developed and implemented by the Trump administration were serving well until Biden reversed it all on Jan. 20 through an executive order triggered by his hatred for Trump. Since then, our southern border has transitioned into an uncontrollable humanitarian disaster that gets worse with each passing day.

Regardless of the problems posed to Americans due to unworkable illegal immigration policy at our border, the attitude of Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris remains unchanged. Drug abuse, COVID-19 exposure, sex trafficking and non-compliant releases of illegals into America’s homeland all receive a nod from both of them, as if they couldn’t care less. Neither of the two have even traveled to a hot spot on the southern border during the past eight months to ask questions or express concern.

To further explain the drop in Biden’s approval ratings, consider the full-blown idiocy of the Afghanistan withdrawal plan, hatched and driven by Mr. Biden, that has led to the loss of at least 13 American Servicemen and another 10 Afghan innocents, (7 of them children), and the uncertain fate of many Americans and allies remaining in Afghanistan under control of the Taliban Army. The need to end a 20-year war is one thing, but a failed plan that results in the loss of American lives, discredits American leadership, leaves Americans behind and donates billions dollars worth of American military equipment to the Taliban terrorists is something very different.

To better understand Joe Biden’s flaky decision making process, we should think back to the energy independence status that served America so well prior to his signing of an executive order to cancel the Keystone pipeline. Think back to a time when gasoline prices in America were a dollar a gallon less, and energy independence was something we could be proud of. Think back to a time when crime statistics, especially murders, were much lower and safety in America was much improved due to full funding and respect for those who police and protect our streets and neighborhoods. Think back to a time when bail was not so easy and justice was served to protect the innocent. Also consider the current inflation rate of 5.3% and runaway spending under Joe Biden that will make that rate climb even higher.

This president is incompetent, careless and unworthy of the position. I predict his numbers will continue to plummet as America continues to lose face due to his decisions.

80+ million smart voters who wanted an incompetent traitor gone. I think that’s pretty clear.

Blackhorsegirl

No, Haitian refugees are not running amuck through Texas. They are being processed for asylum applications.

As usual, Tucker Carlson lied or whoever you get your erroneous information from. What was it? Garbage websites? QAnon? You people are so gullible.

Mr Incredible

Mayorkas FINALLY admits 12,000 illegal Haitians out of 17,000 have been released into the US, and number could go 'even higher': He DOWNPLAYS border crisis by saying 'I wouldn't call it a flood'

Mr Incredible

Any biden voters here want to defend this? Mayorkas FINALLY admits 12,000 illegal Haitians out of 17,000 have been released into the US, and number could go 'even higher': He DOWNPLAYS border crisis by saying 'I wouldn't call it a flood'

Mr Incredible

There was either voter fraud, or we are to believe there are 80 million people (More than ever voted for any other candidate in history, including obama) that are as brain dead as joe biden. Frankly, his wife should be arrested for elder abuse.

Blackhorsegirl

81 million voters made a good choice or, we could say, 81 million votes made their choice. 73 million voters made a choice for Trump. They just lost the election. That’s how elections work. No fraud. No stolen votes. No meddling Italians, Chinese, or North Koreans. No hacked voting machines. As for the large number of voters: this should be a moment of pride in the American people.

Stop believing the lies of a childish poor loser. Grow up and move on. Try to find Republicans who have dignity, decency, and honesty. Good luck with that.

Mr Incredible

So, America has 81 million morons. Good to know you all sacrificed the country just because you had your panties in a wad and wanted to get rid of Mean Orange Man. Because I haven't run into one biden SUPPORTER, just Trump haters. Very adult.

Doc Samson

I will say that Trump didn't do himself any favors with some of his statements/proclamations and read that many folks did, indeed, vote AGAINST Trump, rather than FOR Biden. That being said, to put Biden up as some sort of shining paragon of virtue and integrity? My eyes can't "roll" hard enough... [lol]

Usual striking out with nastiness. We don’t hate Trump. That requires too much effort he doesn’t deserve.

Trump is a liar who continues to lie and undermine our democracy and our elections. He lost an election. That’s the risk of politics which having the emotional maturity of a 7 year old, Trump is not mentally capable of processing.

A person who wanted to overthrow a democracy deserves to be in prison. If you love our country why would support such a liar and danger to our democracy?

Blackhorsegirl

By calling the winning voters morons, just show how petty and small minded you are as well as simply a poor loser throwing childish tantrums.

You have no creditable argument. Regardless of the mental capacity of the voters, President Biden is our president and Mr. Trump is an ex president.

Blackhorsegirl

You’re afraid to defend a man who lost an election and tried to overthrow a democracy to remain in a position he couldn’t win honestly. He continues the lies of a stolen election that didn’t exit. (Please refer to the news of the sham audit by the ignorant Cyber Ninnies in Arizona. Biden won and Trump lost). Trump can shriek for the rest of the 49 states to audit their election results and he will still lose.

Ummmmm…..no defense. Guess we’ll just assume you to be cowards, have no defense, or most likely, wallow in the same sewer of lies and fantasies as Trump. Embracing the lies of Trump makes you the same traitor he is. You and the rest of the Toadies are a clear and present danger to our country.

Answer the question.

Doc Samson

"Biden has a lot to do all at once..."

[lol][lol][lol] Yeah, like remember how to chew, breathe, remember whether he's allowed to answer questions, etc. [lol][lol][lol] Talk about "twaddle"... [rolleyes]

Old Western Man

[lol] the usual apparatchiks falling all over themselves to defend the indefensible.

Blackhorsegirl

There is no indefensible other than you defending a losing former president trying to overthrow a democracy. Why would you do this? Do you truly hate this country so much?

Doc Samson

@OWM - It's hilariously pathetic. All they can do is circle back to... TRUMP!!!! Remember when they went through their "living rent free in your mind" phase? Yeah, well, in just another case of projection, we see them guilty of exactly what they mock in others... [lol]

As usual, no answer, no argument, no defense for a president who lost an election trying to overthrow a democracy. That tells me you’re no better, are traitors to our Constitution, and have no respect for our democracy.

You might think differently if democracy was gone and so were your rights granted by this democracy. Biden’s win allowed your grousing to continue while a traitorous criminal was thrown out of office by the majority of the American voters. Be thankful.

Blackhorsegirl

Answer the question. Why would you defend a former president who did with his lies and is still trying to undermine our elections, made an attempt to overthrow a democracy, and threaten our Constitution? A loser who refused to participate in a peaceful transfer of power and blocked and caused issues with that for weeks.

Why would you support an embarrassing pathetic old man throwing dangerous childish tantrums because he lost an election. He lacked the fortitude necessary to be in politics. You can always lose.

Answer the question or we’re liable to think you have no defense or are just cowards.

Let's long for the halcyon days where our psychopathic president's clown show put children in dog cages and separated toddlers from their mothers, some never to be reunited. Finally we have a president with the intestinal fortitude and moral integrity to stop the pointless insanity of Afganistan, so let's take cheap shots at the inevitable final losses of that hopeless quagmire. Let's pine for the gluttony of fossil fuel orgies while greenhouse gases grow in our atmosphere and the planet burns.

Far from being incompetent, careless and unworthy we now have a president with integrity who respects our constitution, works for all citizens, listens to health experts, and isn't dumb as a hammer. History will look back on the Trump years as the lowest point in American politics, where we nearly lost it all to a dictatorial nepotistic tyrant with his psychotic throng of screaming syncophants.

Doc Samson

"we now have a president with integrity..."

The fact that you actually believe THIS, regardless of party affiliation/ideology, is a testament to why you should try something other than Kool Aid to drink...

hagansan

"psychotic throng of screaming syncophants."

Doc Samson

Your lack of context leads me to believe you are either describing your "crowd" or projecting. Which is it?

Mr Incredible

You do understand those "dog cages" were built by obama, right? Of course you do, just like you understand biden is not using the exact same facilities, in which conditions are reported to be horrible. But hey, as I always day, liberal hypocrisy knows no bounds

Blackhorsegirl

Or we could call it partisan impatience or desire to find anything wrong after a few months. Your shrieking lacks credibility.

Do I need to repeat myself that President Biden is working to better the lives of all the American people and not trying to overthrow a democracy as Trump is trying to do.

I think that speaks for itself. Then there’s the 64,000 dollar question: why would you even support an individual who would do that? The election is long over and Trump lost. Move on.

Jonboy3000

Enjoy the moment. Biden has a lot to do all at once. It’s hard to govern a country where 40% of the country supported a coup and refuse to follow public health guidelines. Trump drew down the troops in Afghanistan to 2,500. It’s not rocket science to know that it would be a dangerous mission to evacuate folks. The original estimates were that 80,000 would have to be evacuated. We evacuated 122,000. Many Americans with dual citizenship decided to stay. If you had family there, what would you do? Haiti is in crisis from assassination of their President, an earthquake and a devastating storm. There are roving gangs which makes life there quite dangerous. If you were there with a family, would you try to get out? It’s a shame our country has forgotten the words on our Statue of Liberty and talk about Christian values but fail to follow through. This is very early in an administration that has had to clean up a lot of messes from a previous administration. The American people have the attention span of a gnat so they and the media will move onto something else. This virus will peak and eventually things will return to normal. This will solve a lot of disruptions in the economy. I know you’re concerned about Biden’s poll numbers. Don’t worry, he’ll be fine.

Catherine Giovannoni

Joe Biden's doing a great job. Two-thirds of Americans support his plan to Build Back Better. Already, he's gotten shots in the arms of almost two-thirds of eligible Americans. The economy is back, creating jobs and good stock market returns. Regular Americans are getting money in their bank accounts to buy school supplies, pay the rent, and purchase food. We're at peace for the first time in twenty years. We have a leader who does more than just send nasty tweets and play golf at his own courses on the taxpayer's dime. Joe's doing just fine.

Thanks Leroy, always good to hear your stale "predictions."

Blackhorsegirl

Please show me where President Biden tried to overthrow our democracy, continues outrageous lies that undermine our elections, and threatens the integrity of the Constitution.

That is Trump. Why do you support that kind of traitorous behavior? If Biden tried it no one would shrink louder than you and the rest of the Trump Toadies. You follow a traitorous criminal. Why? Do you hate this country so much?

The Node

Nothing is going better now than a year ago. To continue to cheerlead for this administration is either blatant partisanship or stupidity.

Doc Samson

When you actually believe Biden has "integrity"? I think we know the answer! [lol]

TonyR

More twaddle. Time has shown that the mess Biden inherited was greater than anyone imagined. He deserves a medal for standing up to the war profiteers and saying 'no more'. Trump tried to throw in the towel but didn't have the spine - so he just made the Taliban the official government of Afghanistan my signing the treaty that did not include the actual government of Afghanistan.

He also found the US government in shambles with the incompetent and toxic managers he put in place to destroy our democratic institutions and foul our natural resources. The project to relocated all military, research, and NASA facilities out of Texas and Florida is taking time and resources - but it needs to be a priority.

Point to the twice-impeached former president and his cabal of power hungry autocrats for instilling and promoting distrust in national health authorities, norms and institutions, as well as demeaning our country's physicians and researchers, which has led to the Covid-19 crisis in our country. This is where we are in America today. Idiocy raised to the level of normalcy and lies vigorously defended as truth.

Putin and Xi are laughing. Their village idiot surpassed all expectations. Not a missile was fired, nor one bomb dropped. Shame!

Blackhorsegirl

Another rant after a few months. That doesn’t mean a whole lot. At least President Biden hasn’t made an attempt or is continuing to make attempts to overthrow our democracy.

Polls go up and down. The last administration was always below 50%. Nothing to brag about.
