SOON: Biden to hold news conference as White House attempts image makeover
It will get better. Look we're not there yet, but we will get there!

Joe Biden is going to try and explain it all away with a single press conference. He hasn't held many press conferences.  There are reasons why Biden's and Harris' handlers limited their exposure. Harris can be hard to follow as her sentences zigzag down roads to nowhere. And Biden tends to introduce strange new words into the lexicon and freely commits gaffes. What will today hold?

Btw as Biden attempts to answer spontaneous questions, the faux "voting rights bill" is about to be voted down in the Senate. Russia is poised to invade the Ukraine and inflation is hurting the American people.

And here he is.....

He starts by reading a teleprompter telling us what a great job he's done!

Joe Biden says it's been a year of progress. Bragging about vaccination, job creation, unemployment, child poverty, new business applications, etc. Claims working people got a raise

Fact check:

Biden says he is making 1 billion tests available. HHS says new contracts are not for test manufacturing, but simply for distributing 50 million tests sitting in warehouses

Would these be the tests that don't differentiate between Covid and the flu?  No matter, more than likely, they will end up like the mail along the railroad tracks in California.

Says he should have done more "testing" earlier in his administration but that they're working on it now. Advertises government site that will reportedly get you tests, mailing them out a week to two weeks after you request them.


"We're in a better place than we've been, clearly better than a year ago." Says schools should stay open.

Right, but there are treatments that are most effective in the first few days of being symptomatic. That’s why it’s important to know ASAP if a person is sick from Covid and not something else. 

Hopefully, people are getting test kits in advance of getting sick, but apparently getting test kits to everyone in advance of a big spike in cases didn’t occur to anyone in Washington.

If you can demonstrate that voting for people of color is decreasing, I'd be interested in seeing it. But the data I have seen is that minority voting has been on a general increase for a couple of decades, at least. It has never been easier for people of all backgrounds to cast a vote than it is right now.

Here is Joe laying out those expectations.

What about the performance?

At that time, we had 220K Americans dead and he said anyone responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president.  More than twice that number have died under his watch.

At that time, Joe was outraged because there were 1000 deaths a day. Yesterday, we had almost 3000 deaths.

At that time Joe was outraged because there were 7000 new cases a day. Yesterday, we had over 1 million new cases.

There’s the performance versus expectations.

First reporter lists some of the country's major problems. Gently asks "Did you overpromise what you could achieve and how do you plan to course correct?" "Why are you such an optimist," Biden responds?

"I didn't overpromise," Biden says, and adds you have to acknowledge his enormous progress. But says his one failure is getting Republicans, who he recently disparaged without substantiation as vile and evil racists trying to destroy country, to "get in the game."

Contrary to his stay-at-home posture of recent years, says he's going to go on the road a lot to campaign for Dems and make the case that his first year has been a huge success and to make the case that more needs to be done.

ABC reporter says it's not GOP but his own party who is blocking his legislative goals right now. "Do you need to be more realistic and scale down these priorities to get something passed?" He says "no."

If you really gave a fuck about seeing a video about James Earl Jones stuttering, all you had to do was google it. There are multiple interviews over the years of him talking about it, how he managed it AND stating 'once a stutterer, always a stutterer'. 

That google search will take you just as long as it took you to post another one liner here Greg. 

Please proceed.

YOU started this thread, and YOU made the topic stuttering. 

I cited James Earl Jones who has stuttered for most of his life. He stated that he couldn't even manage to introduce himself to family friends. He also stated, 'once a stutterer, always a stutterer' and said that he STILL struggles with stuttering.

There are multiple videos on the internet of interviews with James Earl Jones in which he speaks openly and eloquently about it. Go watch one...

So, stuttering doesn't 'go away' Sean, it's MITIGATED and it isn't 'amazing' that over a lifetime, a stutterer learns to do so, especially a stutterer who choses an occupation that requires public speaking.  

Deal with it.

Good for James Earl Jones!  That has exactly zero to do with Joe Biden. 

o, stuttering doesn't 'go away' S

So you believe  Joe Biden lied about this as well.

Although  the fact that you think James Earl Jones experience somehow translates to everyone else is a laughably pathetic argument.

93  in the first 39 months and well on his way to bypass several others.

President Trump has held 93 press conferences since taking office, more than the 70 held by President Barack Obama over the same amount of time and the 72 held by President George W. Bush, according to research compiled by historian Martha Kumar. Only Presidents Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush had more during the first 39 months of their presidencies. The former ended up with 133 during his first term, and the latter did 142. If Trump continues at his current pace of six or seven press conferences a week amid the pandemic, and he shows no sign of wanting to slow down, he will eclipse them both by the end of June.

He brought up the Politico/Morning Consult poll finding that 49% of registered voters disagreeing with statement that Joe Biden is mentally fit. "Why do you suppose such large segments have come to harbor such profound concerns about your cognitive fitness?"

Biden said: "I have no idea."

Another thing we learned from Biden today -  "upcoming elections could easily be illegitimate."

Can't wait to see the old  quotes from Democrats about Trump "attacking  democracy"

And the  "It's Biden so its completely different when he does it" responses from his apologists.

I'm going to conclude this with two observations:

Joe Biden hasn't done a press conference in months and we can all see why.

And let us never forget that having about four sane people and a room of delusional people is not helping anyone, especially this country.


Good night.

As much as I can take

Election will be illegitimate 

NATO is divided, Russia will only sanctioned if it's a major invasion.  

Polls are lies.  Here are some polls

 Republicans more obstructionist than ever. Care about nothing but making me look bad. Also Biden: I passed the largest Bipartisan Infrastructure Package in history

Republicans have no agenda. I oppose the Republican agenda.

It goes on and on

2 hours of taking questions, not a flub in there. This is easily Biden's finest hour as president. 

Agree with him or not, he handled this press conference beautifully, no matter what the far right thinks.

Joe Biden , repeatedly today, "What are the Republicans for? " 

They didnt lay a glove on him, AND he took questions for two hours. Are you going to stop saying he has "lost it" or are you going to be delusional ?

Why do you imagine repeatedly asking  a question that makes him look ignorant helps him? 

hey didnt lay a glove on him, AND he took questions for two hours

You are right, he stood there for two hours and the media didn't lay a glove on him. The damage was all self inflicted.

Are you proud to support a man who  repeatedly  undermined our democracy? What would 2020 John Russell say about your support of a President calling  elections illegitimate?

It's stunning you can't say how much Trump and Biden mirror each other.

After watching Biden stand on his feet & answer questions for almost two hours (during the longest POTUS press conference ever), there should not be any question that Biden is highly competent & in excellent physical & mental condition. Only partisan douchebags would disagree.

It's started...

Ukrainian official told CNN's Matthew Chance that he is "shocked that the US President Biden would distinguish between incursion and invasion." "This gives the green light to Putin to enter Ukraine at his pleasure," the official said. "Kyiv is stunned."

This was Joe Bidens finest hour, period. No verbal flubs, two hours of taking questions. Put the right wing in its place.

He’s exceeding expectations. For example, inflation is higher than predicted.

Wages are up 4%.

Inflation is 7%.

Well, I guess we're going to have figure out what - if anything - he is responsible for. I suppose he gets credit for higher wages, but inflation isn't his fault?

The point is he's trying to take a victory lap when certain key facts - e.g. inflation, Covid, supply chains, Ukraine, etc. - are worse than they were when he took office, not better.

So it's not me blaming Biden. It's Biden himself taking credit for the current situation. I'm just taking a critical look at that situation. And it doesn't look as good as he makes it out to be.

There it is in a nutshell.    

Folks on the left want to give him credit for anything good but not assign blame for anything bad.

Such is how folks think in the land of crackpottery.

I just got off the phone from the last of a few of my old friends that are still in the political game and asked them for their take on this "Press Conference"

#1 overall presentation? a dog and pony show, completely scripted, questions known in advance with a notebook of applicable answers. The notebook was cause they wanted it to appear natural.. (no teleprompter) they failed...

#2 it was made to appear like he is healthy sharp and on top of everything, in reality he looked like a bumbling fool stumbling around flipping pages to find the correct answer, he lost concentration several times and had to ask the reporter to repeat parts of their questions on several occasions... And he rambled a bit clearly loosing his train of thought in the middle of an answer he got off a printed page...

#3 there was nothing we haven't heard before except for the attempt to get his BBB bill back but in pieces to get most of it passed... (yet to be seen)

Final Collective Consensus, it was interesting to watch, it represents that the democrats know he is failing and was an attempt to revitalize and rehabilitate his affect to the people, all it did was make him look more the ancient old fool than before...

Final judgment, it didn't help him....

I imagine it would have been identical to the outrage they had all the other days.  It's not like they had any room to the upside.  They were all outrage all the time.
