President Joe Biden’s State of the Union address offered a chance for a flagging presidency to reset and pivot, perhaps giving his party a new message to sell in the upcoming midterms.

But for Democrats, the chance was missed. The president offered nothing new. In fact, if you had seen no news about this presidency and just watched the speech cold Tuesday night, you might assume that, politically, everything is fine for Biden.

But the reality is much different. Biden’s approval ratings in many national polls are in the upper 30s, low 40s, a terrible omen for Democratic candidates up and down the ballot. Many generic ballots show Republicans with huge leads, which portends the possibility of a wave that ushers Republicans into office who never even dreamed they had a chance when they filed to run.

why can’t Biden relent on his war on American domestic fossil fuel production to help supply our European allies at a time that they, too, need to cut off Russian oil imports as much as possible?

Biden appears to care more about his green energy agenda – championed by the progressives in his party – than he does about sticking the knife as far in Putin’s back as possible. Perhaps we could stop the madman more quickly if we were as committed to that as Biden is to a liberal agenda that has no chance of passing this Congress or the next...

I was surprised that he didn’t bring any new ideas to the table on the issues killing his party, and that he continues to try to use "17 Nobel laureates" to convince Americans paying over $100 to fill their tanks that things are just fine. Happy talk simply won’t cut it when it doesn’t match voters’ lived experiences.


Good, good stuff.

    Breaking news: Republican operative critical of Democrat's State Of The Union speech.

    So, which part's inaccurate?


  3. by Curt_Anderson on March 2, 2022 11:23 am
    Example: Biden is NOT waging a war on oil.

    "Tonight, I can announce that the United States has worked with 30 other countries to release 60 Million barrels of oil from reserves around the world.". --Joe Biden, SOTU


  4. by HatetheSwamp on March 2, 2022 11:53 am

    "It is estimated that the world consumes over 97 million barrels of oil per day. The world's proven reserves are equivalent to about 46.6 times its annual consumption levels, meaning that the Earth has about 47 years of oil left at the current consumption levels.

    So, less than two-thirds of a day's worth is a war?


  5. by Curt_Anderson on March 2, 2022 12:10 pm
    Right. Jennings was wrong. It's not a war and Biden is not waging a war against oil. In 2020, the United States consumed an average of about 18.19 million barrels of petroleum per day, or a total of about 6.66 billion barrels of petroleum.

    I've long advocated that we should reduce our dependency on oil because it props up undemocratic governments like Russia and Saudi Arabia. Frankly, it's not a bad thing if gas prices are high. Maybe people will consider electric vehicles, public transportation and/or think twice about hopping in their car to buy a quart of milk.

    I predict that Jennings will also be proven wrong in his claim that Biden's poll won't improve.

    Let's, uh, circle back on Joe's polls...say on, I got it, April Fool's day...appropriate, eh?

    My guess is that he'll be at least -10 on 538.

    ----------

    As far as people driving electric cars, we're glad to have Bidenized ourselves with our hybrid.

    But, tell a young family or a single mom to buy an electric car.

    There's so much that Blue MAGA elites are for that is either impractical, or just plain impossible for many people.

    Biden is currently 11.5 below water. Ten below would be an improvement making Jennings prediction wrong.

    Biden is now at 53 disapproval, 41.5 approval. On April 1 we check 538.

    "Biden is now at 53 disapproval, 41.5 approval. On April 1 we check 538." -- Me on March 2.

    Biden is currently at 53.1 disapprove, 41.1 approve.

    HtS wins.

    Y'know, Curt, with all the sycophantic coverage Joe gets from the SwampMedia, when Joe slipped into negative net approval after the Afghanistan debacle, I thought he'd settle in at about zero, sometimes a little positive, sometimes a little negative.

    When the slide continued, I figured that the worst he could do was settle in at minus 6, then minus 8, then 10, now 12.

    At the moment, his net is almost where Trump was. Now, I think the question is: How low can he go?, even with the press holding him up...

    ...but, if the SwampMedia turns against him, as the new Hunter coverage could pretend...

    ...Yikes!
