Democrats are worrying openly about the bloodbath the midterm elections are shaping up to be – as they should be. Most polls are now showing voters more inclined to vote Republican this year than at any time in at least 25 years.
So now the spin from the left is: the economy is great, the president’s economic plan is working and Biden is the “jobs president.” That’s the drum the Washington Post and MSNBC is beating. They seem to be bewildered. Why is everyone in such a bad mood?
“I’m not quite sure what the disconnect is,” Hillary Clinton mused on NBC’s “Meet the Press” last Sunday. She said Democrats have “a good case to make if we get our focus in the right place to do it.”
“We got a story to tell, just got to tell it,” Barack Obama said last week.
The Hill reports that a growing number of Democrats are frustrated that Biden is incapable of selling this “good news” story. But for once we will take Biden’s side. The problem isn’t the message or the messenger .
It is that Biden’s “progressive” policies on COVID, crime, the border, energy, inflation, the debt, the deficit, national security, and education have been catastrophically bad for the country. Only people living inside the Washington swamp don’t seem to get that.
