Joe Biden has just completed the first six months of his Presidency.
While I think most of us agree it was overwhelmingly better than any six months of Trump’s Presidency, does anyone have any other comments?
I think the withdrawal from Afghanistan was a good decision even though I expect the Taliban to take over in the fairly near future as it’s obviously that otherwise the U.S. was probably going to stay there forever.
He did as well with Covid as anyone could have given anti-vaxer and Republican sentiments.
Unfortunately his philosophy of doubling down on identity politics will result in a continuing alienation of the white working class from the Republicans and I expect lead to one or both of the houses of Congress switching to Republican control in the 2022 or 2024 elections. For example he announced a program of loan forgiveness to black farmers. Why just black farmers? A huge chunk of the population sees this as unfair.
