Pre-election concerns that President Joe Biden lacked the energy or focus to keep pace with the rigors of a president have proven true. During his first month in the White House, Biden’s tardiness and mishandling of critical issues such as the Middle East and Texas crisis have been nothing short of negligent.
Perhaps dreaming of an Obama 2.0 administration, the Biden Administration engaged in pre-election overtures to America’s worst enemy, Iran. Officials continue to hold back-channel discussions with the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism.
But in the Oval Office, a doddering Biden failed to contact the nation’s most loyal and long-standing ally in the Middle East, Israel. It took Sleepy Joe nearly a month to call Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Although the fake news media has attempted to downplay the obvious error, the Israeli leader appears none too pleased with Sleepy Joe’s plan to re-enter the foolish Iran Nuclear Deal.
“Whoever supports our policies, I’m with him. And whoever endangers us, for example, regarding a nuclear Iran, which is an existential threat to us,” Netanyahu said. “So, I oppose that, and I don’t care if it’s Democrats.”
“Sleepy Joe” failed to react to the Texas crisis in the homeland as 4 million people were without electricity and many had no water. The storm caused upwards of 30 deaths, and hundreds of desperate residents suffered carbon monoxide poisoning, trying to stay warm in idling vehicles and bringing propane grills indoors.
“Jill and I are keeping Texas, Oklahoma, and other impacted states in our prayers. I’ve declared states of emergency, authorized FEMA to provide generators and supplies, and am ready to fulfill additional requests,” Biden tweeted towards the end of the crisis. “Please heed the instructions of local officials and stay safe.”
Sleepy Joe may have slept through much of the crisis. He didn’t even call Texas Gov. Greg Abbott until Thursday, Feb. 18, one of the last days of the deep freeze. Aside from the outlandish Twitter propaganda that made Sleepy Joe almost appear presidential, the White House admitted they only sent 60 generators to help 4 million suffering Americans. The establishment media has yet to detail how 60 generators would be divided up to support 4 million people.
Sleepy Joe never left the D.C. swamp, where he has been a fixture for his nearly 50-year career in politics. Days after power and water were restored to the majority of Texans, the Democrat continued to stay in his warm, cozy White House residence. Although notoriously liberal publications such as the Washington Post praised his “Low-Key Approach” to the crisis, it’s abundantly clear he lacks the clarity of purpose to respond in a timely fashion.
Even Democrats such as Texas state Rep. James Talarico have criticized the non-response. The Democrat went on the record during the peak of the crisis, saying the only federal assistance he even heard of was a FEMA truck carrying water getting stuck. Republican officials have been less kind.
“This has been something like the Dark Ages here in Texas. I mean, people are burning their furniture and their fences for warmth and for heat,” GOP Congressman Colin Allred reportedly said. “They’re finding older folks literally frozen to death in their beds. When the president has toured — seen the damage, spoken to the people who were affected — I think that makes it a little bit hard to say, ‘Well, I’m sorry, you’re going to be on your own.’”
Sleepy Joe’s delayed response may win praise in D.C., but everyday people suffered the consequences, and it will happen again.
