In contemporary times, the United States remains embroiled in tumultuous times. Inflation remains at its highest levels in decades, foreign adversaries continue to take aggressive stances in international affairs, and a cultural battle for the identity of the nation rages in communities across the nation. Things in America are dark, and it appears that the sitting president Joe Biden continues his trend of incompetent, and weak leadership in every scenario. In a latest statement, the president claims he is too busy to visit East Palestine, Ohio, the location of a catastrophic chemical train derailment which rendered the entire community uninhabitable. After appearing in Live Oak, Florida following Hurricane Idalia, the president was asked by members of the media about his inability to visit the struggling Ohio town seven months since the accident occurred. Biden simply stated that he had a “lot going on”, and that he was hoping to visit East Palestine in the coming week but was reminded that he had other planned global commitments.
These are not the words of a strong, initiative-grabbing president boldly leading the western world. As president, Biden himself should be setting the agenda, and dictating where he should be travelling. It is unknown who is “reminding” the president of his responsibilities. For all his claims of working, Biden has allegedly spent 40% of his term as president on vacation. The United States is a nation without leadership, and a ship without direction.
In what has become an all too common occurrence, Biden committed another public speaking gaffe after straying from the teleprompter on November 21st. After holding a meeting to address the surge of fentanyl into the United States (largely due to his open border policies), Biden appeared to call one of his own neighbors a drug addict, appearing to say that someone he lived to “next door” was (doing drugs) before stopping and saying “anyway…”. Biden is an incoherent and feckless leader.
