Joe Biden promised a return to “normal” for Washington, D.C. under his administration. I guess that means the White House getting very little done?
In his first week and a half, Biden signed more executive orders than Bush, Trump, and Obama combined. But since then, it seems Sleepy Joe hasn’t done much.
Perhaps Biden is discovering just how difficult this job really is. It takes more than empty promises to actually lead the country, Joe.
Because after one month, he still has less than half of his cabinet filled.
From The Hill:
Biden is more than a month into his presidency, but the Senate has confirmed just six of his Cabinet nominees, leaving critical vacancies as the president seeks to navigate competing crises…
Biden lags his predecessors in the pace of his confirmations for the 15-member Cabinet…
“Such a delay amidst a pandemic, economic volatility and historically high levels of racial tension is a most unfortunate setback.”
A full month has gone by since Biden’s Inauguration, yet he only has four of his cabinet members in place.
The media is desperately trying to spin this as the fault of Republicans, but the truth of the matter is, this is Biden and Democrats’ fault.
Democrats could have easily moved through the process of confirming cabinet members. But what were they busy with over the last two months?
Oh, that’s right…a bogus second impeachment of Donald Trump! Biden made all kinds of promises during his campaign. His first 100 days were supposed to be amazing.
But thirty days in and he’s got little to show for them. Doesn’t bode well for the next 70, huh?
The Senate could not move ahead with the confirmation process, because they were busy with this idiotic impeachment trial.
But it’s largely Biden’s fault as well. Why couldn’t the “head” of the Democratic Party pressured Schumer and Pelosi to just dismiss this nonsense?
Isn’t helping Americans through a pandemic more important than getting revenge on Trump? I guess not, because Biden didn’t even attempt to interfere with the process—even when his agenda was at risk.
In addition to that, some of Biden’s picks are so terrible, even Democrats are against them. Word is Biden’s OMB pick Neera Tanden will be rejected by Democrats like Joe Manchin. She did, after all, insult just about everyone online, including Bernie Sanders.
Maybe Biden needs to actually start doing his job, instead of going to bed early and playing video games.
- Joe Biden only has four of his cabinet members in place.
- Delays are the result of bad choices and the impeachment trial.
- Biden has not fought to get the Senate to do its job.
