As his administration is encircled by a series of ever-worsening crises, President Joe Biden is growing visibly frustrated by what he feels is the electorate’s inability to sense his true greatness, angrily declaring in a recent speech that the profligate federal spending he has championed is “changing people’s lives,” as the New York Post reports.
Biden’s remarks came during an appearance at the Philadelphia convention of AFL-CIO members, and it was clear that he was not interested in any criticism of the direction he is taking the American economy.
“I don’t want to hear any more of these lies about reckless spending,” Biden huffed, before shouting, “[w] e’re changing people’s lives!”
Not surprisingly, it did not take long for opponents of the president to express that while the commander in chief may be correct that lives are indeed being changed by his administration’s policies, those changes are not for the better.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) took to Twitter and concurred that Biden has indeed had an impact, just not the one he claimed, writing, “You’re changing their lives alright – $5+ gas, no baby formula, historic inflation, historic crime wave.”
Rep. Mike Rogers (R-AL) agreed, noting simply, “Under President Biden, Americans’ live have changed for the worst.”
Biden is not alone on the left in essentially urging Americans to quietly accept – perhaps even be grateful – for the economic destruction he has wrought, with Washington Post personal finance columnist Michelle Singletary admonishing concerned voters during a recent appearance on MSNBC.
As Fox News noted, Singletary opined that those buckling under the strain of high prices for everything from gasoline to food simply need to stop complaining so much, “calm down and back off,” and get with the program, asserting that the “Biden administration is doing whatever it can to help Americans.”
“There are Americans who did extremely well in the last two years in the market. You still have your job. And yeah, it’s costing you more for gas, but guess what? You’re still going to take that holiday, that Fourth of July vacation, you can still eat out,” Singletary said, exemplifying precisely the type of elitist disregard for the profound challenges facing everyday Americans that is spelling doom for Biden and his party come November.
