He's an old fool. Shit, Trump was better. America should be unhappy with Biden's results. They suck.

President Biden is finding himself largely powerless to address a spate of setbacks in recent weeks that have sparked alarm among Democrats about the state of the country.

Biden has been dealt blow after blow in recent weeks: The Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to an abortion; the country is plagued by gun violence, the latest example falling during an Independence Day parade in suburban Chicago; and rising costs for gasoline, food and other goods have frustrated the public for months.

In each case, Biden’s hands are largely tied, frustrating Democrats and contributing to Biden’s political malaise.

He has signed executive action and a bipartisan bill aiming to curb gun violence. He has taken some unilateral action to lower gas prices, such as releasing oil from the strategic petroleum reserve. And he has called on the Senate to alter the filibuster if needed to codify Roe v. Wade.

None of those steps were expected to do or will do much to show the gun violence plague, dramatically lower prices at the pump or bring back abortion rights in states where it is being outlawed.

And all of that is increasingly frustrating Democrats, who increasingly argue they voted Biden into office to enact change and are unhappy with the results.
