The media's 'events' excuse for Biden's failures
President Joe Biden is a helpless bystander to a national and global malaise beyond his control. At least, that's what the public is being told by a national media mystified by all of the afflictions on Biden's presidency. It somehow never strikes the media that Biden and his administration might just be a reason for the current state of the economy and the country.

Opinion The media's 'events' excuse for Biden's failures ByStephen L. Miller October 23, 2022 06:00 AM

President Joe Biden is a helpless bystander to a national and global malaise beyond his control. At least, that's what the public is being told by a national media mystified by all of the afflictions on Biden's presidency. It somehow never strikes the media that Biden and his administration might just be a reason for the current state of the economy and the country.

Bloomberg forecast this week that the odds of a U.S. recession next year (reminder that the country is already in recession) stand at 100% "in blow to Biden." The guy just keeps suffering blows. CNN's Chris Cillizza wrote in July that "Joe Biden can't catch a break." Earlier this year, USA Today wrote , "From Afghanistan to inflation to the baby formula shortage, Joe Biden has been hammered by events that have eroded his support even among Democrats." Did you get that? Hammered by events. Referencing a poll conducted by the Associated Press in June, politics reporter Zeke Miller tweeted , "Growing majority in US say nation is on wrong track, including 78% of Democrats, as economy plagues Biden."

Biden is suffering from blows, events, and plagues, and our media just can't explain why it's happening!

Perhaps, and stay with me here, Biden and his extreme spending, short-sighted foreign policies, and complete lack of urgency in addressing the supply chain shortages might just play a role in all of this.

Biden ran on making the country a quieter, better place that benefited by having "the adults back in the room." Now, Biden's protectors in the media are trying to sell him as a guy who is just a victim of events. I suspect this is not the selling point they think it is heading into the midterm elections and 2024.

They want us to believe that the catastrophic Afghanistan withdrawal and skyrocketing inflation just fell out of the sky. That gas prices rose all on their own, not because Biden shut down new oil leases and has issued the fewest new leases since the 1940s. That the supply chain crisis is happening not because the current transportation secretary is distracted/incompetent and gearing up to run for president in 2024, but simply because events are out of the administration's control.

It's not going to sell with the public.

President Joe Biden is a helpless bystander to a national and global malaise beyond his control.

And his handlers don't have a clue on how to rehabilitate his image.

The media may try to cover and make excuses for Biden, but surely voters can recognize him for what he is.

Perhaps inflation caused such a strain on finances that care was out of reach? Or supply chain issues caused something needed to not be available?

Left wing media wants to make Biden the victim of everything that's destroying the US and her citizens. It's a poor attempt at political subterfuge, because intelligent Americans don't buy into that propaganda.

Well,   IMO...

Afghanistan -  yep,  the pull-out was a disaster and he owns that 100%.  He holds the bag for that major fuckup.

Inflation -  ok,  he didn't cause inflation all by himself, and he cannot be blamed for the entire world either.  But he and the Democrat party sure didn't do anything to lessen the impact and with all the free money that was pushed out it could be said they helped to make it worse.

Baby Formula Shortage -  no, really cannot blame Biden for this.  

Biden and the Democrats have enough problems facing them but I think it's important to be honest.  Not that I expect them to be fully honest in 3 weeks when the results of the elections come in.

"Biden ran on making the country a quieter, better place that benefited by having "the adults back in the room."

What an about face he did on his first day in office. There he was with a big pile of EOs that countered the benefits of what Trump did. Every leftist dream was fulfilled in less than two years and now with a few weeks to go they are trying to avoid their reckoning.

Kari Lake was on ABC's This Week this morning. She didn't get asked about her policy agenda for Arizona. She was only asked about her thoughts on the 2020 election.

That tells you all you need to know about the media.

The Ds losing in the midterms has been a foregone conclusion for almost two years.   They are the party in power and thus face the almost predictable rebalancing come midterms.   Given the Ds have no major successes (other than successfully deploying vaccines to help end the pandemic) and have a number of major negatives (inflation, Afghanistan, ...) the Rs should prevail.

The key negatives for the Rs are the SCotUS abortion decision and the ever-lingering MAGA Trump parasite.

To wit, if the Rs win seats and take control this November that will not be very newsworthy.   It the Ds prevail and hold control, that would be an interesting turn that would trigger analysis.   If either party knocks it out of the park, that would also be unexpected and analysis worthy.

Sorry. Utterly ridiculous. 

She is asked about her views on the election, not out of the blue, but because she is an election denier who will not commit to accepting the results of her own election this year. 

I watched the morning shows this morning and a lot of it was "both sides -ism" . The media is being far too kind to these traitorous Republican candidates. Far too kind.  The media wants that horse race.

John, are they traitorous to you simply because they do not have a (D) behind their name? Please explain why they are traitorous to you. Oh, that's right you routinely paint all non liberal non Dems with the same wide brush don't you? As you were told previously there is no middle ground for you is there? It's either your way or the highway as the saying goes.

Great attempt at deflection there but it does not fly in the face of reality. How many Republicans/conservatives had nothing to do with alleged said overthrow? Then again that is a trick question because you seem to think any non liberal Dem was somehow involved or agreed with it and you have never explained or claimed otherwise. Try again.

When will the perpetually butt hurt come to the realization that the 2020 election is over? The only people beating this dead horse are the brain dead left, are they really so fucking stupid they think the average American finds this more important than 5 dollar gas and 30% higher food prices?

Stating that Biden doesn't have control over events only states the obvious.  But Biden has considerable control over how the United States responds to events.

So far, it seems that Biden's response to events has only made the consequences of those events worse.  Biden seems to be responding according to how he thinks the world ought to work instead of how the world really works.  That's why there are questions about Biden being disconnected from reality.  

When an event occurs then the steps taken to respond can make the outcome better or worse.  And Biden seems to always choose a worse outcome.  Biden's long public service has obviously not prepared him to be President.  Biden knows how to bamboozle the electorate but Biden doesn't seem to have a clue about how to actually do the job.

IMO Biden chose people who see the world the same way Biden does and who have the same priorities that Biden has.  Biden is living inside a bubble of his own making.  Biden's handlers are actually Biden's enablers who tell Biden what he wants to hear.

Events keep trying to burst Biden's bubble.  The more Band-Aids slapped on that bubble only makes it more opaque.  And that means Biden's bubble is turning into a cocoon.
