Former President Donald Trump was supposed to side in easy in the 2020 presidential election with a booming economy and a lack of popularity in the Democrat party. A lot of things happened between late 2019 and November 2020 which caused a lot of people to change their tune.
The Covid-19 pandemic is still coming to a slow end and with a change in voting laws that were illegally passed for the sake of “public health,” the Democrats have to come up with a new strategy.
The White House has found a new face for the Covid-19 response with Dr.Ashish Jha. Jha told ABC’s “This Week” co-anchor Martha Raddatz, “One of the reasons I’ve been talking a lot about the need for Congress to step up and fund this effort is f they don’t, Martha, we will go into the fall and winter without that net generation of vaccines, without treatments and diagnostics. That’s going to make it much, much harder for us to take care of and protect Americans.”
Wasn’t that the strategy last time? To pressure politicians into passing public health bills and if there was any backlash then they didn’t care about science?
Jha also said that the White House is “planning for a variety of scenarios including a wave of infection this fall and winter.”
Jha spoke as if Covid-19 was at the beginning stages of infection. He said, “What we know is that this virus is evolving very quickly and every iteration of it is, you know, has more and more immune escape, uh, makes it, uh, harder for people to, uh, harder for this virus to be contained unless we continue vaccinating people and keeping people up to date.”
The problem is that Biden has to choose to either move on or buckle down on Covid-19. The science is obvious, but the science isn’t of concern anymore. Public perception got him elected and public perception could lose him the little bit of support that he’s got left.
Just like in 2021 when Biden said that Covid-19 was gone, and you saved $.16 on hotdogs, then Delta and Omicron came along and although they were more infectious, they weren’t as deadly. Either way, it made Biden look indecisive just as many other decisions have.
