Well, that’s that. The “Biden honeymoon” of the first 100 days in office has come and gone. As far as accomplishments go, it’s a big fat goose egg. The Asterisk Administration cannot list a single big accomplishment during its first 100 days, other than being the first administration in US history in which naptime was a much more common occurrence than press conferences.
The Democrats’ big problem was that one hand was not talking to the other in the run-up to the 2020 election. And when they were stunned that the tech titans actually pulled off the big you-know-what in November, they had no agenda to run the country with.
The people who should have been making plans to run the country knew that they were toast and believed that they would be lucky to hold the House and/or Senate, let alone the executive branch. It must have been pandemonium for Biden’s handlers:
“Holy crap! What do you mean we won?! What are we supposed to do now? Wait! I know! What was that plan from the dumb girl with the colors in it? She wrote that down, right? What was it called… Blue News Reel? Turquoise Plumb Veal? Oh, the Green Nude Eel! Quick, call AOC and get a copy of her Green Nude Eel! We’ll slap it up on the website and call that the Bold Biden Build Back Better 100-Day Agenda! And send some troops into Syria for no reason while we’re at it!”
Other than the Green Nude Eel, the entire Biden “agenda” has consisted of Black Lives Matter bumper sticker slogans, wacky reparations ideas from Sheila Jackson-Lee, and of course amnesty. My prediction is that none of this stuff is going to pass, by the way.
They couldn’t even get a $15 minimum wage passed! I couldn’t help laughing out loud this week after the White House suddenly announced that Joe Biden had raised the minimum wage to $15 an hour (for federal workers). Congratulations, Biden voters!
Federal workers, of course, make an average of $53 an hour. Even the bottom 25th percentile of federal workers makes $22 an hour. So, Joe Biden’s big executive order for a $15 minimum wage won’t even raise the wages of any federal workers that it was supposedly aimed at. It’s all Potemkin woke theater at this point!
I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait for Joe Biden’s next big announcement of an executive order to forgive student loan debt (for federal workers). Even though that already exists for federal workers, through the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program. It’s pretending that you’re doing something that counts!
Former Clinton administration attack dog James Carville gave a big interview to Vox the other day, and even he admits that the Democrats are toast if they keep trying to appease their own woke base. Here’s what Carville said:
“No matter how you look at the map, the only way Democrats can hold power is to build on their coalition, and that will have to include more rural white voters from across the country. Democrats are never going to win a majority of these voters. That’s the reality. But the difference between getting beat 80 to 20 and 72 to 28 is all the difference in the world.”
That last sentence is key. And yet every single “bold change” item in the Democrats’ agenda is an 80-20 loser issue with mentally healthy people who don’t live in San Francisco, Los Angeles or New York. How do their agenda items really stack up with voters?
Amnesty for illegal aliens has never been more unpopular, with nearly 80% of voters across racial and party lines opposed. Banning voter ID? 77% oppose across all racial and party lines. Gun control? About the same. Letting hairy perverts shower with our teenage daughters after crushing them in the 200-meter dash? The opposition to that is off-the-charts among sane Americans in all political parties and all races outside of the deep blue sanctuary cities.
The Biden regime has no accomplishments to list in its first 100 days because they never had a plan to begin with. The people rigging the 2020 contest forgot to tell Team Biden that they were going to “win.” But enjoy that $15 minimum wage, Biden voters!
