I watched some TV on Sunday, which was a mistake. But sometimes, you want to turn on the Sunday shows, just to check the tone.

The anti-Biden thing is real, and was a bit shocking. It seems to be getting more extreme. Apparently, some strategists in DC have decided that the Democrats will do better in the midterms if they all attack Joe Biden and say they have no relationship to his lunatic agendas. It’s obviously the opposite – Joe Biden has no relationship to his lunatic agendas, Joe Biden doesn’t even know where he is most of the time. But okay, whatever – maybe pretending Joe Biden is making all these horrible decisions himself without the input of the party at large will play well for them.

I think it’s basically an act of total desperation to throw Biden under the bus. I don’t think it was exactly planned. I don’t think they thought this would turn into this big of a disaster. At the same time, I think they knew it was possible, which is why they forced through Joe Biden as the nominee, even when they were going to cheat regardless so it didn’t really matter who the candidate was (except that they wouldn’t tolerate Bernie). Joe obviously can’t defend himself. Anyone else would be trying to push back against his entire party blaming him for a bunch of decisions he didn’t have any role in making.

This was from last Sunday, and is sort of the epitome of what is going on, as AOC is the face of the party:

Joe Biden has no chance in 2024 if AOC won’t even endorse him…you can see the embarrassment on her face when she was asked the question

It’s a bizarre plan, which I’ve never seen before, to have the party and the party’s media throwing the president under the bus as a midterms strategy. I’m trying to think if it’s what I would do if I were them, and I probably would. I don’t really see any other course of action to boost support other than to either completely change course (which they are not going to do) or just blame it all on Biden.

If Biden was conscious, he would probably pull something out like “it’s time to cancel all student loan debt.” That would actually be popular, and something that would make sense as a midterm promise. But that Democrat talking point that is actually popular is nowhere to be seen when they are actually in power – all we get is war, inflation, food shortages, and many other things people hate. The issues that play to the base are largely irrelevant to anyone’s normal life – gun control is purely emotional, and it doesn’t seem particularly important when you can barely pay for gas and food – or if you’re in an income bracket where tax and food don’t matter and you’re watching the stock market collapse. None of these emotional abstractions matter.

I think there is going to be a backlash against the war at some point, because the Democrats themselves have blamed rising prices on their own war. Republicans – who all also support the war – are saying that Biden is lying when he blames the war for rising prices. I wouldn’t go so far as to say “it’s complicated” – the biggest cause of inflation is the coronavirus money-printing bonanza, most of which happened under Trump’s government. Then you have the Biden spending and attacks on the energy industry. But saying that these anti-Russia sanctions are not causing a rise in prices is just wrong.

These sanctions are causing a rise in energy costs across the board, which is an “everything tax,” because everything is transported using trucks that use gasoline. And of course the energy markets are all tied together, so these sanctions mean that home heating/cooling explodes too. Everything goes up (except the stock market and crypto, lol).
