I doubt he'll last through his full term.

What ever Joe Biden's good and genuine intentions were, never answer a direct question where sensitive foreign policy could be open to interpretation reaching beyond the boundaries of a clear need for ambiguity should indicate neither a yes or no!

I totally agree with Joe Biden, his rightful protestations of both the Governments of China and Russia.

From a armchair in Kochi, not from the Presidency of the United States of America.

The gaffes are a good way to keep the adversaries thinking about what is Biden really saying, the guy is hard to read! I have no problem with that!

Biden took office with more experience in foreign affairs than any president in decades and had promised more predictability than his voluble and volatile predecessor Donald Trump.

I admit, it was predictable that Russia would invade Ukraine once Biden took office.

From an outside perspective, not tainted by the poison of fox news, CNN, MSNBC, or OANN, Biden comes across as a fine president, and is doing a good job on the world stage.

America seems to be falling apart internationally, but you wouldn't believe how many people out there are thankful Trump isn't president right now. And no, I'm not talking about in America, I'm talking about the civilized world, unpoisoned by toxic american hyperpartisan politics.

Oops, I quoted the first half my post, but I was saying it, not quoting it. Try again:

Oh yeah, sure, he is a "fine" president.

Where do you get your information from concerning the US president, JT?

Is there a country replacing America as the world's sole superpower? Nah.

And Americans don't vote based on what a non-US citizen living in a foreign country thinks.

Hilarious to think the Americans would even care.

Yep. That's an opinion from someone uninfected by American media. Must be baffling to you extremists who have an IV hooked up to Fox, OANN, CNN and MSNBC.

Oh wow, you think there is only media in America. I don't think you meant to give major insight into your thought processes with that comment, but you did.

And Americans don't vote based on what a non-US citizen living in a foreign country thinks.

Ok? I hope you don't think that means I'm going to stop pointing out that Biden looks like a fine president from outside your media bubble. Are you going to suggest I start watching Fox to get a better perspective? Hmm?

Hilarious to think the Americans would even care.

And yet here you are, replying to me. But yeah, you don't care. Sure. Got it.

Extremists?? Interesting….What should we watch then? The BBC?

Oh wow, you think there is only media in America.

So what would you suggest?

Ok? I hope you don't think that means I'm going to stop pointing out that Biden looks like a fine president from outside your media bubble.

As a foreigner you have every right to say that and as a native voting American, we can also say he’s a disaster especially since what he does directly affects us.

"Gaffes or trial balloons?"

Somehow, with Biden, this question seems like its own answer. WHAT!?!

I appreciate his honesty. His "gaffes" are preferable to others' intentionally avoiding the subject, and obfuscation.
