occasion of President Joe Biden’s first 100 days, I wrote that he was giving the world a lesson on moving forward. At that point, he had pushed the big, bold American Rescue Plan through Congress, and we all had high hopes for the rest of his agenda.I also wrote about how he stumbled going up the steps of Air Force One soon after taking office, and how he got right back up and bounded to the top.
I saw it as a metaphor for how our country had stumbled under four years of President Donald Trump, and how we were beginning to rise again.Biden has stumbled as of late, with an approval rating at in 30-40 percent range — an all-time low.
It’s as bad as Trump was at this stage in his presidency. And we all know Biden is infinitely better than his predecessor; however, he’s having a tough time showing it because he isn’t talking about his successes enough.As he heads into the second year of his presidency, Biden is primarily being judged on his response to the pandemic, inflation, empty store shelves, and his inability to get both his Build Back Better and voting rights legislation through Congress.
