Biden's Troubled Legacy Imperils Nation

We've reached a more than critical tipping point in the affairs, and more importantly the troubled presidency, of Joe Biden.

His approval stands at 35% and that's falling.

It's looking increasingly likely that he and his family have acted less than honorably, or decently.

Who in all honesty can point to his one term presidency and say it has been anything noteworthy?

If anything, the Biden presidency has been marked by abject failure and infamy.

Adding insult to this injury, more Democrats don’t want him to run, than run.

Team Biden is toxic.

Let’s review his "command."

Biden has always been a "Peter Principle" failure and somewhat of a joke, as well as a punchline going back to his days in the Senate.

He won — if so — in an obvious fluke over Donald Trump.

But he won in the same way the high school nerd wins the presidency of the AV club.

At least, he treats the presidency like that.

His small-mindedness has transformed the Oval Office into a "small office."

Ask yourselves this, to what extent has Joe Biden — who has a bureaucrat's soul — lived off the public dole, never met a payroll, never played high school football, and largely accomplished little — done to make a meaningful impact on the American political landscape and its overall societal one?  

The famed director Federico Fellini once said, "You must live spherically."

Biden is one dimensional.

The Reign of Terror of Joseph Robinette Biden

Lets begin with the imprudent pullout from Afghanistan, killing 13 military servicemen and leaving behind billions in military hardware to be used by the Taliban, for the purpose  of killing even more Americans, as well as other innocents.

The pullout simply created a new beachhead for terrorists.

Most assuredly, the Biden record goes downhill from there.

Out of control inflation, out of control crime in the streets, out of control federal spending, out of control Fetanyl deaths; an out of control border, out of control heaping of money on Ukraine (to lavish boodle on the Bidens).

It seems the only thing in control is spreading ill-gotten gains among the Biden shady syndicate, as just discovered by the investigation of Rep. James Comer, R-Ky.

The Bidens are making making past and contemporary racketeers look like the Boy Scouts.

Remember when churchgoers used to pray for their presidents?

They did so, not allowing party identification to matter.

No longer. I know of no one who prays for Joe Biden. Or "Dr." Biden.

There are only three types of presidents; successful ones like George Washington, Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan; miserable failures like Franklin Pierce and Herbert Hoover, and ones who earn a reevaluation like Ulysses S. Grant, James K. Polk, and Harry Truman.

Acts of greatness were discovered in those presidencies, causing an upward reevaluation in these men. Indeed, they were not rated as being "great" at the time of their holding the office, but only passable.

President Grant directed many reforms in government including the banning of sending pornography through the U.S. mail.

He also was very open about race relations.

Polk opened up the West under the aegis, "Manifest Destiny."

Truman cut taxes and reformed the military, inclusive of desegregation, while ushering in the America's superpower era, and its resultant influence. 

Biden will garner no such reevaluation.

He’s done nothing but harm Americans.

Whether this is intentonal or inadvertent is irrelevant.

Again, just look at those killed in Afghanistan (while he later kept looking at his watch during their military funerals) or Fentanyl deaths, or abortions, or deaths on the border, or any matter of other things.

Times when innocent people needlessly died.

British historian, philosopher, and essayist Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) once said, "The history of the world is but the biography of great men."

Biden's stature in history will be proven to be small to inconsequential.

Thus, he will not "earn" a massive biography or biographies, as others like Ronald Wilson Reagan have.

Will Biden's presidential library more resemble a book mobile rather than a place reflective of great achievement? 

Biden will go down in history as not only our worst president, but also our most dangerously malleable.
