Joe Biden The New President Thoughts So Far?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Here's The New York Times, who endorsed Joe for President.

 

"An Ethically Challenged Presidency"
Oct. 5, 2021

 

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/10/05/opinion/biden-ethics-son.html

"There should be little doubt that President Biden was not being truthful when, days after the Taliban’s victory, he told ABC News that his senior military advisers had not urged him to keep some 2,500 troops in Afghanistan. The president’s claim was flatly contradicted last week in sworn testimony from Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Gen. Kenneth McKenzie Jr., the head of U.S. Central Command.

 

During the generals’ testimony, the White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, sought to defend her boss by pointing to a line in Biden’s interview in which he appeared to suggest that the military’s advice “was split.”

Another whopper. What split? As The Times’s Helene Cooper, Eric Schmitt and David Sanger reported in April, right after Lloyd Austin was sworn in as secretary of defense in January, he and his top generals “were in lock step in recommending that about 3,000 to 4,500 troops stay in Afghanistan.” Asked whether there were top military advisers who argued otherwise, Psaki evaded the question.

 

Biden’s dissembling, regarding the worst-executed major foreign policy decision in years, would be a scandal in any presidency. It’s worse coming from the man who campaigned for office by insisting that he stood “for honor and telling the truth.”

 

Et tu NYT? BUyers remorse?

If all you are "...hearing is "Trump", Trump, and more Trump", then you should not keep using "Trump" in the majority of your posts.

If all you are "...hearing is "Trump", Trump, and more Trump", then you should refrain from posting adverts for "Trump" as an example this Trump advert:

"

 

My underlining just highlights a few  inaccuracies.

It's a fact that the most respected, loved and well remembered politicians are the ones who did nothing much. JFK and John Smith are premier examples of the phenomenon. People naturally hate other people who do things and achieve lots because it makes them feel stupid and inadequate, it's a primal thing that we can't help because we're basically apes subject to the usual Rules of Nature. The trick is to catch yourself before you fall into the trap but it's difficult to escape the comfort zone of hatred. 

You're in good company.

 

Einstein said something  very similar:

 

"Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. The mediocre mind is incapable of understanding the man who refuses to bow blindly to conventional prejudices and chooses instead to express his opinions courageously and honestly."

Lol - neither of those clauses mention the USA troops not withdrawing.

Your argument appears to be with AP News.

 

Go take it up with them. Lol

 

""U.S. officials made clear at the time that the (Doha Cease Fire) agreement was conditions-based and the failure of intra-Afghan peace talks to reach a negotiated settlement would have nullified the requirement to withdraw. One day before the Doha deal, a top aide to chief U.S. negotiator Zalmay Khalilzad said the agreement was not irreversible, and “there is no obligation for the United States to withdraw troops if the Afghan parties are unable to reach agreement or if the Taliban show bad faith” during negotiations".

But it is now reported that according to John Hopkins, more U.S. citizens have died from COVID under Biden's 9 months in office, than in his predecessor's term of office.

Fortunately, it is not true although it is not far off. The article contradicts its own headline. You have posted fake news.
