Whatever political spin was included in Joe Biden’s State of the Union address Tuesday night won’t matter to many Americans.
It’s because they’ve already seen what he’s doing, and make their judgments on that, according to an online commentary from Tony Perkins, chief of the influential Family Research Council in Washington.
He said, “To most Americans, it’s less about what Biden will say Tuesday and more about what he has done.”
He quoted Rep. Jody Hice, R-Ga., who already warned, “The people of the United States are not fools. They get what’s going on in this country…”
Explained Perkins, “And until this president changes his strategy and confronts the crises at hand, the state of our union will continue to be a dismal one.”
Perkins noted the difficult job facing White House speechwriters when they prepared Biden’s address.
“Trying to spin a year’s worth of disasters into a triumph of modern liberalism would be hard even for the best fiction writers,” he said. And he cited their need to be “pretending that his failures overseas, the high prices at home, and the deep unpopularity of this administration are all a fulfillment of his promise to do ‘great things.’”
His assessment of the overall performance of Biden, who has been asked by members of Congress to take a cognitive test to show he’s mentally capable of doing the job after a campaign, and a year in office, of verbal gaffes, blunders and stumbles, was devastating.
