Biden admits things are ‘lousy’ before saying the quiet part out loud

Ahead of the 2020 presidential election, then-candidate Joe Biden promised an end to fossil fuels and, while he hasn’t stopped shifting the blame for the economic downturn, his latest remarks suggest he is not as upset with American economic suffering as he’d like voters to believe.

President Biden capped off an extended weekend at his Rehoboth Beach, Delaware home Monday as he fielded questions from reporters by the shore. While reiterating the current talking point voiced by Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen that a recession is not inevitable, his slant toward optimism bled into a radical push for the progressive green agenda with the average citizen shouldering the cost.

“My dear mother used to have an expression: out of everything lousy, something good will happen if you look hard enough for it,” he told the press.

“We have a chance here to make a fundamental turn toward renewable energy, electric vehicles, and not just electric vehicles but across the board,” Biden went on. “And that’s something we should be – my team is gonna be sitting down with the CEOs of the major oil companies this week…so I can get an explanation of how they justify making $35 billion in the first quarter.”

The president’s statement was once again viewed as “saying the quiet part out loud” that the burden placed upon Americans was not an unfortunate side effect of Russian President Vladimir Putin generating a “Putin price hike” by invading Ukraine, but part of a broader deliberate strategy to eliminate fossil fuels before the infrastructure could even support it.

“So he IS doing everything stupid on purpose,” seemed to be the only conclusion that could be drawn from the admission.

Meanwhile, corporate media outlets appeared all too ready to promote the same notion that this was all for the best as CNN’s global economic analyst Rana Foroohar touted “some of the transitions to a kindler, gentler, I believe more stable, and ultimately more resilient economy, are going to be inflationary in the short to medium term.”

John Hayward of Breitbart News noted, “If you took Joe Biden’s rhetoric over the past month seriously, he’s telling you to thank Vladimir Putin for jacking up gas prices so high that stupid Americans will have no choice but to make a ‘fundamental turn toward renewable energy.'”

That rhetoric included Biden’s remarks in late May where he stated, in part,” when it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over.”

However, Biden still seemed hopeful that he could maintain a level of plausible deniability on the concerns of the fossil fuel industry. When asked if he would sit down with the heads of the oil companies he recently threatened with “emergency authorities,” he said “no” and followed up with “because my team’s gonna do that.”

As Foroohar explained in her analysis, this isn’t something “Democrats right now in advance of a midterm or a presidential want to land on,” and yet it looks as though they are preparing to openly embrace it. The question remains as to whether conservative leaders can find their own positive from these failings.
