President Joe Biden’s Declining Approval Rating! by The Elephant's Child

President Joe Biden’s approval rating has dropped to 44%. I fail to understand why it is so high. He has been around the U.S. Government for a long time. He was first sworn in to the Senate in 1973, and served there until 2009, when he became Obama’s vice president. That is thirty-six years, then add on eight years in that role before he was elected to the presidency and inaugurated on January 19.

One would think this was enough time to understand the presidential office and what it entails, what the obligations to the American people are. He may not like the role at the moment, but he is the one who is responsible.

We can’t seem to get any straight answers about how many Americans remain in Afghanistan, nor how we are going to get them out. Jen Psaki, White House spokesperson, claims that Americans are not stranded in Afghanistan, but apparently neither she nor the president are actually aware of the problem, and have no ideas about possible solutions.

The French have sent their Special Forces in to extract French citizens, but that seems not to have occurred to our government. Vice President Kamala Harris, who should be at the White House, at least appearing to be at hand and working on the problems, is off in the Far East for unknown reasons, on an undescribed mission, feigning illness to avoid returning, I guess.

Americans stranded in Kabul who cannot get to the airport are pleading for help. The White House did not respond to questions from the press about whether he has seen the interview with Fatima today, nor to questions about whether he had a response to her pleas for help. No response, or just walking out of the room seems to be his answer. He’s had 44 years to understand the responsibilities of the office of the presidency. I don’t get it!

ADDENDUM: New report: Approval rating down to 41%.

Meanwhile, in the comments of another site I visit, someone was trying to make the argument that his choices about Afghanistan were “the best decision he has made in 50 years of government service” (of which I have no doubt… and it’s more than a little frightening) and that “Biden will be remembered for this decision” (which is something I’d be willing to bet the Biden people would rather not happen).
