Yeah Joe —you’re doing great.
During Wednesday’s press conference, Biden was asked if he over promised to the American public what he could achieve during his first year in office. Biden’s answer was shocking.
Here’s the reporter’s lead up:
“I know that some of my colleagues will get into some specific issues, but I want to zoom out on your first year in office. Inflation is up, your signature domestic legislation is stalled in Congress, in a few hours from now … an effort in the Senate to deal with voting rights and voting reform legislation is going to fail, COVID-19 is still taking the lives of 1,500 Americans every day, and the nation’s divisions are just as raw as they were a year ago.”
“Did you over promise to the American public what you could achieve in your first year in office? And how do you plan to course correct going forward?”
Then, over to Joe…
“I didn’t over-promise. I have probably outperformed what anyone thought would happen.”
