Biden taking credit for economic growth is like Lyndon Johnson claiming he helped end poverty. In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, he recently attributed a claim of economic rebound that has been anything but robust to the reopening of an economy that was shuttered by the governing elite during Covid. Biden, of course, was not only the apostle for those closings, he chastised Republican governors like Ron DeSantis who opened their states. He also did all he could to thwart Governor DeSantis' efforts to keep Florida economically strong.
Moreover, he falsely stated “In January 2021, when I took office, the recovery had stalled…” when in fact the economy was bouncing back strongly then. The truth is his actions thwarted that recovery. Instead of preparing our economy for the economic jolts that were sure to arrive after a pandemic, the new President Biden signed off on a plethora of executive orders pausing government leases on public lands, shutting down the Keystone XL pipeline, and creating more hurdles to drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. All of this with disregard for the uncertainties that would follow in a post-pandemic economy
As prices spiked, the Biden crew began to use rising prices as a justification for more spending. Even left-leaning Jeff Bezos disagreed when the “administration tried hard to inject even more stimulus into an already over-heated, inflationary economy." Of course, morning pundits like flipper "Morning Joe," and others like him are trying desperately to rescue the midterm from a disastrous spanking by the public. The left simply doesn't get it when the average worker has to pay almost $5 a gallon to fill his tank, they don't want to hear about their progressive agendas.
Biden is a long-time political hack who only knows how to falsely take credit and blame others. He should have never been President.
