I'm not disappointed in Joe Biden at all. He's doing the poor job I thought he'd do. But he is a responsible adult, a big improvement over DT.

But since Biden left a lot of Americans to be killed in Afghanistan, I just feel that's worse than what Trump has done. But that's just me.

Well, it appears Mr Biden is certainly popular overseas - news reports state that following a meeting with the Duchess of Cornwall, she can't stop talking about him...
Meanwhile, rumors of similar "discussions" with the pope go unconfirmed

It's not published in the news over here, but:
Quote:
Washington (CNN)The State Department informed congressional staff Thursday that it is in touch with 363 US citizens in Afghanistan, 176 of whom want to leave, two sources familiar with the call told CNN.
The figures presented on that call underscore the ongoing challenge faced by the Biden administration as Americans continue to come forward to seek help in leaving Afghanistan in the wake of the Taliban takeover and the chaotic US withdrawal.
Thursday's numbers -- combined with evacuation figures since August 31 -- present a far higher count of Americans looking to leave Afghanistan than the administration publicly estimated at the time of the US withdrawal.

The day before the US military evacuation was completed, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the State Department was tracking "a small number of Americans, under 200 and likely closer to 100, who remain in Afghanistan and want to leave."

More than 200 US citizens have been evacuated with the help of the US government since August 31, according to the State Department, meaning that upwards of 400 Americans have sought US help leaving the country in the nearly two months since the military withdrawal.

Of course, that's just those who have been in contact with the State Department...

CNN Poll: Majority of Americans say Biden isn't paying attention to nation's most important issues


Quote:
(CNN)One year out from the 2022 midterm elections, 58% of Americans say President Joe Biden hasn't paid enough attention to the nation's most important problems, as a majority disapproves of the way he's handling his job as President, according to a new CNN Poll conducted by SSRS.
More than a third of Americans call the economy the most pressing problem facing the country (36%). Among the group that sees it that way, 72% say Biden hasn't been attentive to the right issues. That dynamic is reversed among the smaller 20% who consider the coronavirus pandemic the nation's top problem: 79% in that subset say Biden has had the right priorities, while 21% not.
All told, 48% of adults approve of the way Biden is handling the job while 52% disapprove. Intensity within those ratings breaks sharply against the President. The share saying they strongly approve of Biden's performance has dropped to just 15%, down from 34% in April. Although CNN does not ask strength of approval in every poll, that number never dipped below 20% during the presidencies of either Barack Obama or Donald Trump.

In the new poll, 36% say they strongly disapprove of Biden's handling of the presidency, and that figure is about the same as it was when CNN last asked strength of approval in April, suggesting the drop in approval over the last few months has been driven more by disappointment among his original supporters than an expansion of the group that started off strongly opposed to his presidency.

President Joe Biden’s approval rating dipped to the lowest point of his presidency in May, a new poll shows, with deepening pessimism emerging among members of his own Democratic Party.

Only 39% of U.S. adults approve of Biden’s performance as president, according to the poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Research, dipping from already negative ratings a month earlier.

Overall, only about 2 in 10 adults say the U.S. is heading in the right direction or the economy is good, both down from about 3 in 10 a month earlier. Those drops were concentrated among Democrats, with just 33% within the president’s party saying the country is headed in the right direction, down from 49% in April.

Of particular concern for Biden ahead of the midterm elections, his approval among Democrats stands at 73%, a substantial drop since earlier in his presidency. In AP-NORC polls conducted in 2021, Biden’s approval rating among Democrats never dropped below 82%.

Am usually feeling AP delivers news very accurately . But did notice that they did not address Biden’s tendency to send more and more money to the Country his son has major financial investments in . Hotels specifically,
He is not only sending money for military aide but general economic recovery of a technically , albeit defunct government , Without a functional county . If nothing else , it is premature . As the War is not over yet.
This is not a World War . But Biden is behaving as though it is . Biden And his cronies and Corporations putting the squeeze on the wage slaves and Country, he has dictatorial power over .
Europe does fine caring for a Europe. and NATO and the World Bank is suppose to be doing this kind of thing .
Not our country ! Being concerned for the invaded country has nothing to do with what Biden is doing . It will help his son and our corporate investments there .Making Ukraine more of a indentured servant to the US . ( The Bottom Line) imho.All this time US organizations churches and the like are sending tons of donations to Ukraine .
Meanwhile the average person in the US will suffer huge inflation and price costs . Right after a Covid epidemic .
Before this Country has had a chance to recover. Biden is responding to the actions of a madman, causing our economy to suffer , but our Richest Corporations, will be insured growth . Meanwhile Chinese economy will grow .
And all this weakens the US dollar on the world market . Putting the USA in the position of undergoing a second Great Depression. Imho . This situation will cause the people less financially secure to die . Maybe others too.For various reasons . Biden has not lived in the shoes of a average person for most of his life. I suspect.
People whom cannot make it in the World financially are apt to opt out for suicide. And obviously other reasons .
No , I have no love for Biden and his choice of actions. ( please do not misconstrue any of my writing to be non-supportive of Ukraine . )
