    And he spent that time undermining democracy by lying and stoking unrest about an election he lost fairly, egging on an insurrection against a co-equal branch of government, getting the vaccine in secret and barreling toward a second impeachment. A true statesman.

    Fine? Like you actually want people to buy into your shitty premises?

    He definitely isn't pushing hard enough on some pet issues I want but he's been a calm stable presence which is a far better improvement than our last president who still is stoking the fire by spamming that he's still the rightful president which is undermining democracy.

    What does a private company being hacked have to do with President Joe Biden? The Russians and Chinese infiltrated our most critical areas DURING the Trump administration yet you still play the ignorant fool.

    The Federal Reserve can curve inflation so I don't see an issue there but go ahead and blame him if it makes you feel better.

    Unemployment was the highest since the Great Depression under Trump.

    The border is about the only issue you can blame on the Biden admin and agree they've done a crap job.

    Defund the police is a slogan used by morons and has contributed to the uptick in violent and non-violent crime.

    Israel and Palestine...sigh.

    just so u understand.

    in the midst of the pandemic, during 2000, Trump's economic advisor and former Wall Street cocaine addict, Larry Kudlow, who now hosts a show of FoxNew
    had assured the American public that

    COVID has been contained,
    the economy will be-reopened, people will get back to work,
    accelerating the demand for goods / services and, in the process,
    creating inflationary pressure.
    this is what's happening,
    the competent Biden admin has curbed the spread of COVID,
    some re-opening have started, more on the way.
    increased demand has been creating inflation pressure, reflecting the accelerated economic growth

    cpi has increased to 4.2%,
    attributable to the fact that
    inflation data for much of the second half of 2020 were negative, reflecting a rapidly declining economy​

    the Americans voters had fired the inept Trump. Since Biden's inaugural, under real leadership, US unemployment has steadily decreased.

    When people complained about all the failings of the Trump Admin, it wasn't a laundry list of the bad things that happened in the world; it was a laundry list of bad things Trump himself did. Your list just puts responsibility for stuff happening in the world on his shoulders, as if he could just wave a wand to fix it.

    Most of these job openings are in retail/entertainment/shift work. Good news for high school kids I guess. You start getting middle aged, middle class workers with Bachelor's degrees in specialized fields that were laid off taking these jobs, you'll have an unemployment problem becoming an underemployment problem.

    u need to stop lying.

    since Biden took over

    • COVID cases / deaths have decreased
    • Unemployment has decreased
    • GDP has grown
    • More businesses have re-open
    • While Trump was scared sh it less to call out Russia for hacking US computers, Scranton Joe has called Putin to the carpet

    Man that is some weak ****, a stretch of imagination like a fever dream, ha. Meanwhile the 'Conservative' party melting down like Chernobyl. It's losing it's last gasp of electability with an internal schism over insane cultism and the preservation of a lie. You should be more worried about that that trying to gin up historical issues with Joe. If the party splits into two, they will never win a National election again and will lose three way local elections. We will head out full bore on your worst nightmare, a progressive agenda. Gun control, renewable energy, fair wages, universal health insurance, infrastructure spending ....Whooo whoooo

    Several of the things you list are longer term trends for which we only see 3 months of Biden-era data. It's a bit soon. We just saw a bit of a spike in inflation which might be the start of a thing, but it's early. Gasoline prices seemed to have started to rise in the Trump presidency and are just continuing apace now. Likewise unemployment started to plateau under Trump and is still on the plateau. Murders seem to have gone up with the pandemic under Trump and I don't know of any more-alarming stat in 2021.

    Fighting between Israelis and Palestinians doesn't have much to do with the President. If Trump was president, it still would have happened. So that's pretty irrelevant.

    Then there's a couple of policy choices you included, which depends on the politics of the beholder. It's debatable if nixing Keystone was good or bad. I'm not too sad about it. Likewise on the border crisis. You'd probably say he created a problem. I'd say the problem has always existed, Trump threw the problem over the fence so we wouldn't have to look at it, while Biden has taken it up so we can try to fix it. The current manifestation of a bunch of orphan children showing up on our border is terrible, but the pre-Biden condition was imo a ticking timebomb. So I'm happy with his choices there too.
