By now you’re quite familiar with the Biden administration’s desperate attempts to brand inflation and high gas prices as “Putin’s price hikes.” However, according to the Associated Press, this administration is going to have to up its blame game to include — you guessed it — the party that has no control in Washington, DC:

We can be certain who Biden and the Democrats will not blame for the country’s problems: Biden and the Democrats.
From the Associated Press, the “deflect the blame” president has a challenge in front of him:
For those who think he isn’t doing enough to help Ukraine fend off the Russian invasion, Biden announced $800 million in new military support on Thursday. To ease the pain of high gas prices, he’s tapped the Strategic Petroleum Reserve and reopened onshore sales of oil and natural gas leases on public land. And to address historic inflation, Biden has tried to smooth out supply chain-crimping bottlenecks at the nation’s ports.
The president hopes the moves, which are being announced in near-daily rollouts and in a stepped up travel schedule, will present a contrast with Republicans — who, he argues, spend more time complaining about problems than proposing solutions.
“I mean this sincerely — name me something the national Republican Party is for,” Biden said at a recent Democratic National Committee meeting.
But it’s not clear he’s attracting much support. A new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research finds just 45% of Americans approve and 54% disapprove of how Biden is handling the presidency.
Here’s a solution that might lead to some of the nation’s problems being solved: Vote out Democrats.
When you have the mainstream media on your side, anything is possible.
It’s preposterous but it might work.

Biden and the Democrats will certainly get plenty of help in the effort from the mainstream media.
Amazing how Biden’s running with this given that his party owns both the House and Senate. https://t.co/iwUxzLqX02

As the Biden White House assigns blame everywhere except where it really belongs, this tweet from @JoeBiden in mid-2020 again comes to mind:
It’s hard to believe this has to be said, but unlike this president, I’ll do my job and take responsibility. I won’t blame others. And I’ll never forget that the job isn’t about me — it’s about you.

Yet another lie to add to the long list.
