I thought Mr. Biden was doing a wonderful job! Why do 72% of Americans think that our country is moving in the wrong direction? Why do 54% of of Americans disapprove of Biden? Why do only 28% of Americans want to see Biden run again in 2024? I am having trouble comprehending these numbers! Do the American people not see Grandpa Joe’s greatness?! *sigh*January 23, 2022 2:14 pm at 2:14 pm #2053756Reb EliezerParticipant

He does not believe the polls, and so should not you! It is People’s short attention span fault, Senate’s fault, Rep Governor’s fault, Putin’s fault, Afganis’ fault, next will be Ukranians’ fault. Why do people apply for jobs where it is someone else’s fault, anyway?January 23, 2022 3:32 pm at 3:32 pm #2053767
“ People only look at results.”
I thought Joe Biden was a unifier and he could make bipartisan agreements!
“ It does not matter that the Senate is obstructing him”
They’re not obstructing! They don’t agree with his radical agenda (like a lot of the country) so they’re stopping him from ramming it through.
“ What have you done for me lately?”
I didn’t promise that I’d do a bunch of unrealistic things for you.
I think Biden would do better to focus on issues people actually care about (inflation, supply shortages etc) instead of yelling that his opponents are racist and giving Putin the go ahead to invade Ukraine.January 23, 2022 3:33 pm at 3:33 pm #2053770commonsaychelParticipant

>>>People only look at results.
You gotta be kidding. Do you think that people should judge a president by something other than results?
>>>It does not matter that the Senate is obstructing him
If not for the “obstructionists” in the Senate things would be a lot worse.
>>>he is unable to live up to his promises.
The Senate is not the ones who are stopping him from being the unifier who would lean across to get things done that he promised to be. It takes two to be bipartisanJanuary 23, 2022 7:48 pm at 7:48 pm #2053856ParticipantParticipant

Based on what do you think Biden is doing a wonderful job? Listening to the mainstream media, which from the beginning has been covering for him. Inflation, crime, shameful exit from Afghanistan, ending U.S. energy independence, socialist agenda….which of these things make for a wonderful job?January 23, 2022 9:27 pm at 9:27 pm #2053938
in world news, Germany is reluctant to oppose Russia because it depends on Russian gas due to abandoning nuclear and phasing out coal, and also not having LNG terminals to receive gas from Arabs and US. Then, it says: in 2018, under Trump’s pressure Germany agreed to build an LNG terminal, but this was abandoned after Trump lost the election. How is that for Biden’s achievement by inaction?January 23, 2022 9:34 pm at 9:34 pm #2053965

“Afghanistan destroyed the facade of the caring old man.”
Do you think he is supposed to be Mr Rogers?
As president , Biden is the Commander in Chief. He is the supreme military commander charged with the responsibility of protecting and defending the United State.
He is a very caring old man with decades of experience in personal tragedies. His ability to sympathize and empathize with people suffering is beyond compare.
But he was elected to be POTUS and that means he daily makes life and death decisions.January 24, 2022 12:08 pm at 12:08 pm #2054118

@ jack Biden ran again Trump. A large part of his pitch was that Trump was a crass, uncaring individual. Afghanistan provided a naked contrast between their leadership styles.January 24, 2022 2:16 pm at 2:16 pm #2054174HaravPhilDaBoiParticipant
maybe because joe biden was supposed to be moderate?
he ran against bernie sanders who is a hard core radical.
however once joe got into office he ditched the moderate agenda and ran hard core democrat
people dont want liars for presidentsJanuary 24, 2022 3:19 pm at 3:19 pm #2054243
Joe Biden’s first year in office shows that he ran as a moderate democrat but now he isn’t?
Exactly as he promised, he is governing as a moderate democrat He has not instituted any radical democratic policies.
He isn’t following Sander’s policy of Universal and single-payer healthcare.
He isn’t following Sander’s policy of reducing Military spending. Biden’s first budget increased military spending
Most importantly, Biden has not followed the radical Sander’s policy regarding the Israeli-Palestinian situation. Israel is still in great hands with the Biden administration.
“people dont want liars for presidents.” Go tell that to Mr. “The election was stolen!” and his Republican cabal.January 24, 2022 3:31 pm at 3:31 pm #2054261
“A large part of his pitch was that Trump was a crass, uncaring individual. ”
That was not part of his pitch. That was the pitch from the other republican candidates.
Biden had a long laundry list of ideas against trump.
“Afghanistan provided a naked contrast between their leadership styles.”
If Trump hadn’t pulled out of Syria in 2019 , you might have a point. But republican’s have conveniently forgotten that Trump pulled out of Syria in 2019.
Everything that you blame Biden for in 2021 , Trump did the exact same thing in 2019. Betrayed and abandoned allies (the Kurds) , allowed the enemy (Turkey and Syria) to regain land that had been lost and created a humanitarian disaster.
After 20 years , it was time for America to get out of Afghanistan. The American trained and supplied Afghanistan military couldn’t win in their fight against the taliban, so the taliban took over. That is not Biden’s fault.January 24, 2022 4:30 pm at 4:30 pm #2054270
jackk, Trump solved a lot of problems in Syria and then retreated to a defensible position. Kurds are still there, and we are still working with them. yesterday’s headline: Aided by U.S. troops, Syrian Kurdish forces tighten siege after ISIS prison break.
There was not much possible to do there – by the time Trump came in, Russians were already bombing everyone on behalf of Syrian government. US kicked ISIS and defended their positions where Russian “contractors” tried to overtake US position. Not by economic sanctions, but by obliterating the attackers. 99% of humanitarian disaster was due to Syrian/Russian attacks that caused millions of refugees going to Jordan and Turkey (not completely an enemy like Syria) and then Europe.January 24, 2022 4:31 pm at 4:31 pm #2054279
> The American trained and supplied Afghanistan military couldn’t win in their fight against the taliban, so the taliban took over
There is exactly one person who claims this – Joe Biden. All commentators agree that the exit was done badly. How could you expect Afghanis to fight when they know they are losing, when there are no parts to repair airplanes, etc. Biden went against military advice and it is on him. It is on military leaders that none of them resigned. And they are still there. One of the immediate reactions was that Afghanistan will embolden Russia and China, and this has already been proven to be true, unfortunately.January 24, 2022 8:17 pm at 8:17 pm #2054318DovidBTParticipant
C’mon, man.January 25, 2022 1:46 pm at 1:46 pm #2054553
> The American trained and supplied Afghanistan military couldn’t win in their fight against the taliban, so the taliban took over.
It is not a claim. It is a fact. It happened. Taliban are in control and the Afghan government is gone.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan was swiftly restored as its opponents were defeated or left the country. It is apparently led by supreme leader Hibatullah Akhundzada and acting Prime Minister Hasan Akhund, who took office on 7 September 2021. Akhund is one of the four founders of the Taliban.
The way that America exited has nothing to do with the taliban taking over the country.
> How could you expect Afghanis to fight when they know they are losing, when there are no parts to repair airplanes, etc.?
What does that mean “they know they are losing”? Who gives up ? FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT.
Trump told the Afghanis in 2020 that America is leaving and they had enough time to prepare themselves.
> Biden went against military advice .
Are all military advisers of the same opinion? He went against the ones that you chose because it makes Biden look bad.
Biden ( and Trump ) told the military that Americans are no longer dying for the Afghanis. Some military leaders wanted to stay and fight some more.
If we hadn’t pulled out and more Americans would have died this year and we would have another decade of endless republican investigations – ala Hillary and Benghazi.
Tell me how many Americans died in Afghanistan this year vs the 4 years under Trump?
>One of the immediate reactions was that Afghanistan will embolden Russia and China, and this has already been proven to be true, unfortunately.
This is your opinion and is not based on facts.January 25, 2022 2:37 pm at 2:37 pm #2054556
Air-strikes are not the same as having personnel there.
Regarding Trump’s decision to withdraw US troops from Syria’s border with Turkey, a prominent Democrat had this to say, it was “an impulsive decision that has long-term ramifications” and “cuts against sound military and geopolitical advice.”
Another Senior Democrat warned that “a precipitous withdrawal” would benefit Russia, Iran and Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, and increase the risk that the Islamic State would “regroup.”
Some senior officials at the Pentagon said they were blindsided by the decision, the second time in less than a year that Trump has upended U.S. strategy in Syria following a telephone call with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
The first statement was made by Lindsey Graham and the second by Mitch McConnell.January 25, 2022 6:41 pm at 6:41 pm #2054647
Wait a second, how did we get back to Trump? I asked about BIDEN’S approval rating. This once again shows that you can’t praise Joe Biden, you can only talk about how much you hate Trump. We know Biden was elected for being “not Trump” but now that he’s president let’s see if you can talk about one without the other.January 25, 2022 6:41 pm at 6:41 pm #2054644ParticipantParticipant
Can someone help me understand why YWN has to give minutely updates on his (dis)approval rating?January 25, 2022 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #2054674
Because it’s fascinating to watch a president have a fairly higher approval rating to sinking lower and lower!January 26, 2022 12:31 am at 12:31 am #2054719
jackk, Syria was a complicated campaign in multi-player environment. I am not saying that Trump did everything right. Who knows. Reasonable that some disagreed and that he made decisions disregarding some generals. He achieved a lot – defeating ISIS, keeping territory and oil for Kurds, defeating Russians when they attacked.January 26, 2022 12:32 am at 12:32 am #2054718
jackk > >One of the immediate reactions was that Afghanistan will embolden Russia and China, and this has already been proven to be true, unfortunately.
> This is your opinion and is not based on facts.
Jackk, this is how you test theories. There was a prediction above made by many 6 months ago and it turned out true now. Russia surrounded Ukraine and demands US/NATO pull out forces from whole Eastern Europe. US non-essential personnel evacuated. We can’t say there is a direct link between two events, but the fact of prediction is telling.
Who were military leaders who supported Biden’s direction for Afghanistan, specifically reducing personnel so that Bagram had to be abandoned. Afghani government/military is obviously not perfect/third country, but they had forces willing to fight, but not when US left them in the middle of the night leaving them without air support and repairs (all contractors had to leave also).
Some indeed said that if we were to not pull out because Taliban did not fulfil Trump’s conditions, then Taliban would start attacking US forces again. But this was a conjecture. There was a possibly viable plan to keep small force continuing supporting Afghans. Same as US has in Syria now supporting Kurds. It might have not worked, but Bidenistas did not even try – because of their internal political considerations.January 26, 2022 1:56 am at 1:56 am #2054746
Wait a second, you asked for help to understand something but it appears that you do not want help in understanding. You have already decided.
Can’t praise Joe Biden ? See my other posts in other threads. I don’t have to constantly repeat myself.
How about you praise Joe Biden ? Or have already decided that nothing he does is worthy of praise?
The YWN posts regarding Biden’s approval ratings are not news. They are fake news opinion pieces.
To have a headline “How low can they go ?” when he is at 39% approval rating is silly and does not reflect the reality of what an approval rating means.
Trump’s approval always hovered around 39% and Republican’s loved him and he received almost 75 million votes in 2020. In fact he left office with a 33% approval. Trump’s approval rating remained within the same 9-point range for his entire presidency: 47 percent at its highest in October 2018, and 38 percent at its lowest in October 2017.
(Also, quoting Mark Penn as if he is an objective observer is laughable. Mark Penn has been a Trump supporter for the past 4 years.)
A low approval rating does not mean that people wish that Biden suddenly turned himself into a republican or that he resigned.January 26, 2022 2:23 am at 2:23 am #2054789
jackk, you are right at equivalent ratings, with minor difference: Trump was attacked by media, Biden – defended. As we just saw above, you do not remember what Biden said – why? you did not pay attention then, and you never heard about it again. Imagine, Hunter’s – just the ones documented by Congress – payments from China and Russia would be on first pages of papers daily, what would be his ratings? As I said before, it does not help d-s in the long run. With some criticism from outside and within, he could have avoided many of the disasters. Unfortunately (for us), criticism only starts after obvious failures when it is too late.January 26, 2022 1:33 pm at 1:33 pm #2055009bob hample1Participant
