Closed Schools And Expensive Groceries Mark Biden First Year

It will get worse.

Joe Biden defied expectations of his first year by not having a full blown psychotic episode while barking at Jen Psaki and frothing at the mouth. Oh…wait…Are you sure? Really? Must have been off camera.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel lists the rest of his underwhelming achievements.

McDaniel: Joe Biden held his first solo press conference in nearly three months on Wednesday and he wasted no time making it clear why he hides from reporters.

Biden had a weak excuse for every crisis that’s happened on his watch, continued to shift blame for his failures, and at times seemed to live in an alternate reality.

At one point, when asked if he had over-promised upon coming into office, Biden countered that he’d actually “outperformed” anyone’s expectations. — This comes as his approval rating among Americans continues to plunge.

A Politico poll on Wednesday found that about half of Americans give Biden either a “D” or “F” grade for his first year in office. You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone in Biden’s America who thinks he’s outperformed expectations.

One year into the Biden presidency, Americans are worse off across the board. Prices for everyday goods are skyrocketing as Americans from coast-to-coast experience a generational inflation crisis. Biden can’t say he wasn’t warned – economists from across the political spectrum, including some who worked for former President Barack Obama, were sounding the alarm about inflation for months.

Now, basic goods have become expensive luxuries for too many, and Biden doesn’t seem to care. His chief of staff Ron Klain laughed inflation off as a “high-class problem.” Moms trying to feed their kids before school and seeing the price of bacon and eggs go through the roof might disagree.

When he briefly touched on inflation during his press conference, Biden vaguely referenced a plan to fix the supply chain. Here’s a news flash: the supply chain broke on Biden’s watch, and he has done little to fix it. Ships full of goods are still trapped off the coast of California and have been for months.

Meanwhile, crime may be rising even faster than prices. Big cities nationwide – all of them run by Democrats – are seeing historic surges in murder and assault. In his press conference, Biden had little to say about why communities from Los Angeles to New York are less safe one year into his presidency. He failed to address the clear role that his party’s push to defund the police has had in creating this wave of violence. Plus, there was no mention of the drugs and crime flooding across the southern border or the nearly 2 million illegal immigrants apprehended since he took office.

This is Joe Biden’s America: your groceries are more expensive and your neighborhood is less safe. Your kids may not even be in school…We knew Biden would be bad. One year in, he’s unfortunately exceeded every expectation – and Americans are paying the price.
