In a timely piece, the New York Times attempted to reset the table when it comes to President Biden’s dismal first year in office, declaring that he was “redefining the arc of his presidency” in the face of a number of recent events, the least of which being Russia’s unprovoked invasion of neighboring Ukraine.
Published on Sunday, two days before Biden’s State of the Union address, the piece titled, “10 Consequential Days: How Biden Navigated War, Covid and the Supreme Court,” was not burdened by the newspaper’s normal paywall to ensure maximum exposure, and endeavored to smooth over any number of domestic failings Biden is facing.
The president is suffering from one of the lowest approval ratings in modern presidential history, and has struggled to offer any real solutions to inflation, to include soaring gas prices, a supply chain crisis, and the crisis on the southern border with Mexico, where nearly 2 million illegal immigrants entered the U.S. in Biden’s first year alone – the vast majority not only allowed to stay, but many of the migrants have been flown across the country at taxpayer expense to be resettled. And then there are his legislative failures.
All of which the Times characterized as “congressional squabbling.”
“All presidents are confronted by episodes that are out of their control, forced to react to the world around them more often than they are able to shape it,” the newspaper declared. “But the dizzying events of the past week have for now pushed to the sidelines the congressional squabbling over Mr. Biden’s domestic agenda, and are already redefining the arc of his presidency.”
The article is based on interviews with current and former administration officials, and readers are informed that the president’s aides “say his actions in recent days were an example of the caution and consensus-building that have always been at the heart of his sales pitch to voters.”
We are informed that while Biden is expected to focus on inflation and the economy, drafts of the speech “have been revised repeatedly throughout the week to take account of Mr. Biden’s challenge to President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia and the sweep of events in Europe, all with an eye firmly fixed on Mr. Biden’s place in history.”
“Putin started the biggest land war in Europe in 70 years, Mr. Biden named Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to become the first Black female justice in the Supreme Court’s 232-year history, and the C.D.C. announced new rules aimed at returning the country to something closer to normal,” the Times then noted.
In mentioning the curious timing of the CDC announcement, the Times doesn’t mention Biden declaring before taking office that he would “shut down” Covid-19, only to see the virus explode on his watch even after a vaccine was introduced. There was no mention of him saying at the time the U.S. had recorded 220,000 deaths under President Trump that “anyone who is responsible for that many deaths should not remain as president.” The number of deaths since Biden took office has nearly double that total.
While detailing various actions and events throughout the ten days, the piece fittingly ends on the final day, Feb. 26, noting, “Mr. Biden spent Saturday at his home in Wilmington, Del., preparing to face Congress on Tuesday during his State of the Union address.”
Biden retreating to Delaware while Russia was waging war in Ukraine and Putin ordered his nuclear forces on high alert, yet as chaos reined all around the Times qualified Biden’s retreat thusly, “It was a reminder, as one aide to Mr. Biden put it, that ‘this is just the beginning.'”
You know, wisely steeling himself for the battles to come — many of which are of his own doing because of a leadership void,
Suffice it to say, social media users were equally as skeptical, as seen here:
The pandering. First off we didn’t go to war, second COVID’s been around 2 years and he nominated someone he had said he would nominate. Stop acting like it’s the Cuban middle crisis and he’s the Kennedys locked in the white house. https://t.co/s5AfnpYMdy

How agout the truth he left town to hide in his basement, Biden’s a part time Monday to Friday President and only works half time on those days. Sanctions were supposed to be a”deterant” but put on after Putin invaded, screwed this up just like Afghanistan pull out!! https://t.co/h5rylgtbrk
