There is one thing to making mistakes, but showing no remorse compounds the misstep. To break the law and have such arrogance to say, “I have no regrets,” is to mock the matter. To be the Commander in Chief, the President of the United States, and to blow off a severe violation of the law by saying, “there is no there, there,” is to indicate you believe you are above the law. That is the message I heard when Joe Biden took to the podium in California and went off prompter. He opened by saying how upset he is that reporters continue to press him on the Doc-Gate issue and not on what he is doing in California. With all due respect, Mr. President, we will decide what is important to us, and your breaking the law is a significant issue with Americans. The latest polls show 69% of Americans are not pleased with how you, and your Administration, are handling the breach of National Security.
The unknown is a big problem here for many people. We do not know the contents of the documents, how many documents, if all have been recovered, and most importantly, who had access. We are not getting all the facts to decide how big a problem Biden has created. Biden wants us to dismiss this breach as nothing, but when Trump was found to have done the same thing, Biden said Trump could not be more irresponsible. The arrogance is terrible, but the hypocrisy compounds the matter. Biden appears comfortable, expecting a very unbalanced application of the law; Trump is guilty, but Biden is innocent.
The many lies by the Administration over the last few weeks and the lack of explanation about the timing of information dispersed make even the Left-leaning media skeptical. We are witnessing this skepticism every day as the press corp peppers Karine Jean-Pierre with questions she deflects and refuses to answer. When they claim to be the most transparent, this lack of transparency is fueling the flames for more questions. These press briefings are ugly but have become don’t miss TV. KJP is now the punching bag for the Administration, and she is maximizing her condescending attitude toward all members of the press.
Nobody seems to know where this issue is going. The House is chomping at the bit to get members of the Biden team under oath. The Special Counsel is yet to start, so we do not know how she will attack the issue. One thing we do know is the Bidens, Joe and Hunter, are the first President and son duo ever to be investigated simultaneously. That is a dubious distinction. Will either be held responsible for their nefarious actions or will they both slide by above repercussions?
It isn’t very likely Biden knew the optics of his comments to the press and the people standing behind him. For some reason people think it is a show of strength to make comments with a group of speechless mannequins as a backdrop. In this case, Governor Gavin Newsom was standing directly behind the President. Many found this ironic as Newsom is making it evident that he wants Biden’s job in 2024. The scene was as if Gavin Newsom was waiting for Biden to fall on his sword, and Newsome was there to take up the sword.
One thing doesn’t balance. The President and his mouthpiece, Jean-Pierre, continue to say that the President takes the handling of Classified Documents very seriously. Yet, he has no regrets that he was caught with classified materials from the Obama Administration in his garage six years after the end of Obama’s time in office. Maybe what he means is he seriously takes classified documents. It is all in the order of the words.
