Biden Admits He Could Have Done More To Fight Omicron Had He Only Known…Those 500-Million Promised Test Kits?…Yeah, Read All About It
Rule number one. Donât make promises you canât keep. Joe Biden may have, at one time, been aware of this unofficial law, but at 79-years-old, his mind has a few cylinders that arenât firing correctly. Heâs the little train who still thinks he can, but in reality, his engineâs blown a gasket. Biden flashed his dentures at America while blindly promising that 500 million rapid COVID-19 tests would find their wayâs into every home in the country. Not to worry. He was on the job. But since the old guy forgot that other people needed to be involved in the process to make it happen, his plan isnât going down the way heâs probably forgotten he said it would.
If nothing else Biden should at least receive a little credit for fessing up. He admitted how his administration could and should have done more to get the tests in peopleâs hands for the holiday season when they were all gathering, which was the intended purpose. The kits are still coming, but they wonât be here until sometime in January once the holidays are over and they arenât needed so much.
Doctors and health officials from around the world rang the alarm when Omicron began flexing its muscles. They were concerned at how rapidly the variant spread, even to those who were previously vaccinated. But Biden wants us to believe he wasnât aware of this until it was too late.
âItâs not enough. Itâs clearly not enough. If weâd have known, weâd have gone harder, quicker if we could have,â he said in a virtual meeting with state governors. âYou could argue that we should have known a year ago, six months ago, two months ago, and a month ago.â Correct Mr. Biden. We could argue that.
Biden said his shortcoming in no way represents a âfailureâ but that he wished he had thought about placing the huge order âtwo months ago.â Presidents arenât supposed to wish. Theyâre supposed to do and theyâre supposed to have Americaâs back. Itâs what theyâre paid to do.
These types of comments arenât doing a thing to build confidence in an administration thatâs fledging as is. If you recall, Biden haphazardly vowed to eliminate COVID-19 if elected, and oddly enough, enough voters believed him. He was bigger and tougher than any virus, and he, and he alone would body slam it to the mat. But as the pandemic enters its third brutal year, the White House canât keep up with it and itâs largely due to the negligence of the president.Â
While on the campaign trail, Biden ironically made a mockery of Donald Trumpâs failure to contain the virus within its first year. A virus that was brand new. A virus that even leading health officials knew little to nothing about. This is no longer the case and Biden has had all of the information heâs needed to act appropriately but has failed to do so.
Political blows are coming faster than Biden can ward them off, and this one scored a direct hit. Come 2024, the Democrats are going to seriously pay for the blunders of their chosen one, but ehâ¦thatâs their problem.Â
