The only way Joe Biden can look good as “president” is to manipulate the data. And coming on the heels of one of the best economies in American history, Year One for Biden appears good.
But now that Biden is in his second year, he won’t be able to hide his real performance. So much so that even Jeff Bezos spoke out.
“In fact, the administration tried hard to inject even more stimulus into an already over-heated, inflationary economy and only Manchin saved them from themselves. Inflation is a regressive tax that most hurts the least affluent. Misdirection doesn’t help the country.”

Interestingly, this saga started with Bezos responding to the Neoliberal tweet that also criticized Biden’s manipulation of the data.
That group had pummeled Biden for his lies about the deficit.
This is so silly. The deficit is decreasing because we’re not doing pandemic aid anymore, and federal receipts are up because of inflation. Congress, or the Biden administration, didn’t do anything to lower the deficit. https://t.co/kvlLPpsUO9

I didn’t expect to see a leftist billionaire publicly criticize Biden, but maybe there’s hope for Bezos yet. But he’s not the only billionaire to recently attack the president.
Elon Musk Weighs In
Musk still seems to be the “man of the hour.” Thus, his opinion carries a lot of weight these days. Recently, he decided to dissect the real problem with Joe Biden.
Biden’s mistake is that he thinks he was elected to transform the country, but actually everyone just wanted less drama

Of course, as I previously wrote, Democrats didn’t know how to produce “less drama.” So here we are…. falling apart.
The country is a mess. The economy is upside down. People are going broke. They can’t afford food or gas. And things aren’t looking up anytime soon.
Even Democrats are wearing thin.
By the end of 2021, far more Democrats were switching to Republican than the other way around. Unbeknownst to many, partisanship is fluid. Some people have to wander aimlessly and get lost before they can be found. Thus, party switching isn’t really uncommon, but it’s something Democrats hope we don’t hear much about, because these days, Democrats are far more likely to jump ship than Republicans.
As one article put it:
[There is] very little change in the trend established months ago, with four times as many Dems switching to GOP in May as vice-versa. The numbers are relatively small — still in the hundreds. But more Dems also are fleeing their party and registering as indies, too, by close to 2-to-1.
Will it make a difference at all, and are some of these just getting into the GOP to vote in the major contested primaries next month? Hard to tell. But if you look at the aggregate numbers for the last quarter, you’d rather be the Rs than the Ds.
Of course, this article is speaking only of Nevada. But it applies almost nationwide. Even Californians are switching sides. Because having Biden at the helm makes it hard to justify being a Democrat. The gas prices alone are enough to drive someone straight out of Leftistville and straight to the right side of the aisle.
I’m not sure what you paid at the pump today, but I paid $4.17. It literally made my stomach hurt. As Donald Trump put it just the other night, “When I was in office you all went out and bought these big, beautiful trucks! We got gas down to $1.89 a gallon. Now, you can’t afford to drive them.” Sad, but true. More than just true, UNDENIABLY true. There is no way for leftists to wiggle out of that one, because they’re paying too.
Biden isn’t just a president we sort of disagree with. The destruction his policies creates is easy to see. At the grocery store, at the gas pump, in the welfare line, on our military bases, there is no escaping the bad news Biden brings. It doesn’t matter whether you’re homeless, or a billionaire, you can feel it– because natural disasters don’t discriminate. They just destruct.
