It’s a shame this win was overshadowed by 45’s losing streak this week. It should have received more news coverage.

And some people were dumb enough to think Joe was behind the raid.

A majority of American adults say economic issues are the biggest concern facing their family right now, according to a new Monmouth University poll, which also found that few believe the country is on the right track. 

Sixty-three percent say either inflation, gas prices, the economy or everyday bills/groceries is their family's top concern (inflation and gas prices alone combined for 47%).

That would explain why people are making less noise about whatever environmental crap Biden undertakes and he is not listening to the nation as to what the are all so concerned about. their pocketbooks and that's the huge advantage the GOP has going into these midterms.

American Big Oil companies have made huge profits even with the high gas prices.

Three of the world's biggest oil companies reported their biggest-ever profits last week, as Russia's war in Ukraine drove up oil and gas prices and American drivers faced the highest gasoline prices on record.

It isn't just a win for Biden, it is a win for the human race. Even Xi, with his refusal to cooperate toward saving the world, will benefit.

How so?

President Joe Biden’s approval ratings are on the rise after months of historically low polling, according to a Reuters/Ipsos survey released on Tuesday that placed the president’s approval rating at 40%.

and that will have a significant impact on how his priorities after November towards the American people will be addressed, if he’s smart after November, he will do what Clinton did and move more to the center to get things done, even some of his whacked climate initiatives, but if he doesn’t, then it’s gonna spell more trouble for him in 2024

It is not the Ukraine war that is driving up prices, but the Biden admins shutting down on production and sanctioning Russian energy supplies. The only thing that is working in the other directions is the economic recession this is causing, plus Bidens selling off the US strategic oil reserves to China.... another brilliant idea, LOL
