As NEWSWEEK says it:

...Biden's statement implying that the U.S. is back to normal was also heard amid a 31-year-high for inflation rates, and as virus cases continue to tick up across the country.

Earlier this week, CNN reported that current inflation levels may cause this year's Thanksgiving to be the most expensive in history. Figures from the American Farm Bureau Federation revealed that the average cost of a Thanksgiving meal is up to 14 percent higher compared with last year.

From fuel to food, prices have reached their highest levels in decades across various sections of the economy. Last month, groceries were an average of 5.4 percent higher than the same period last year, while overall inflation rose by 6.2 percent. Gas prices also surged throughout October and November, prompting Biden to authorize the release of 50 million barrels of oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve in an effort to ease costs during the holiday.

...the issue has proved a major headache for the Biden administration, and has seen his approval rating job to as low as just 38 percent. Consumers across the country have expressed frustration at higher prices, with some claiming that its becoming difficult to buy basic necessities.

...Meanwhile, health officials have sounded the alarm over rising virus cases throughout most of the U.S. According to the data compiled by Johns Hopkins University, at least 24 states have seen 100 percent increases in daily COVID cases this month.

Yeah, as John Lennon suggested, "Picture yourself in a boat on a river...

...Lucy in the sky with diamonds... ahhhhhhhhhhhhh."

In the mind of the former 18 wheeler driver, all is well.

    I didn't watch his speech, but from the parts I've heard, it sounds like it was a typical upbeat damage control-type address.

    Americans generally blame the president for everything they don't like or that's going wrong. We childishly look at the president as some sort of god that has the power to make all the bad stuff go away, and if he doesn't, or there's enough bad stuff still around after his first four years, we vote for whoever the other guy is.
