We’ve been saying for a while now that the Biden administration is a failure. That’s because, on nearly every issue, Biden has failed to not only make good on his promises, but to achieve even a shred of success. Biden has not only been unable to score new wins for the country, but he’s even reversed the successes earned by Trump and other leaders.
But what is really shocking is how Biden and his staff refuse to admit anything is wrong. If you were to believe Joe, the country is the best it’s ever been, despite runaway inflation, rising fuel costs, an open border, and out-of-control crime.
It seems, though, on one of Biden’s major campaign issues, he is partially admitting defeat.
As reported by The Daily Wire, Biden made the remarks after Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson (R), chairman of the National Governors Association, spoke about challenges his state is experiencing in responding to the pandemic…
A few moments later, Biden responded, “Look, there is no federal solution. This gets solved at the state level.” [Source: Daily Wire]
No federal solution to COVID? That’s not what Biden’s been saying over the last two years. He promised to “shut down the virus” during his campaign. Now, he is saying only the states can “solve” this issue.
As you can imagine, the responses were not kind.
Sen. Tom Cotton: “…If he really believes this, he should rescind his unconstitutional federal mandates.”
Dave Rubin: “So what Orange Man wanted. Got it…”
Harry Khachatrian: “So Joe Biden effectively tells state governments to figure out Covid for themselves, and the media does not have anything to say about it.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Biden’s claim that the federal government cannot address COVID contradicts everything he’s done since entering office. Biden used the federal government to aggressively push his COVID agenda. That includes using what power he possesses to force private citizens to get a vaccine they do not want.
For him now to be saying it’s up to the states to fix this crisis is unusual. Biden has clearly pushed a top-down approach to leadership. He makes the rules and everyone else has to blindly follow. To now be saying the federal government can’t solve the crisis, but states can, is almost an insult.
He abused his power for nearly a year, only to dump this problem onto the states’ laps? When Trump was president, he harnessed the resources of the federal government to supply aid and direction to the states. He appropriately allowed governors to decide what was best for their regions.
Is Biden finally going to do that? Or is this another admission of defeat that changes nothing? Will he withdraw his vaccine mandates? Will he stop holding antibody treatments hostage? Will he appear before the American people and admit he is unfit to lead?
We really can’t claim Biden will now do the right thing, even after admitting this.
