Biden should build on gun control victory,and not be sidetracked by bunch malcontent,who criticize his exit from Afghanistan,Beto will be governor of Texas,an could mount a contest for President

The Russia Ruble just hit a 7 year high against the USD.

Russia seems to be winning the sanctions war.

-2 ( +8 / -10 )

7 year high against the dollar doesn’t mean anything when it’s a useless currency that nobody, aside, from china wants to do trading with. Russia can’t even manufacture cars with airbags because of the sanctions. Yeah, Russia sure seems to be winning.

and not be sidetracked by bunch malcontent,who criticize his exit from Afghanistan,

That won’t happen because the people that suffered through won’t let him forget it.

Beto will be governor of Texas,an could mount a contest for President

That will never happen.

Is Biden really the correct leader for all these G7 and NATO initiatives?

he is failing at leading his own country. why let him lead your global group?

-5 ( +7 / -12 )

He made yet another gaffe. He confused Russia with China.

U.S. President Joe Biden is out to sustain the global alliance punishing Russia for its invasion of Ukraine as he embarks on a five-day trip to Europe as the four-month-old war shows no sign of abating and its aftershocks to global food and energy supplies are deepening.

Ukraine is at Europe's doorstep.

What does Biden have to do with this?

-4 ( +3 / -7 )

Of course ...there a lot of work left to restore the US-Europe alliance after four years of Putin-adoration....

The two year old orange baby that was mocked and laughed at by the Europeans did tremendous damage to the relationship...

Fortunately, as the Jan 6th hearings have shown - he directed an attempted coup even though he KNEW he lost, using fraudulent electors and fake certification lists...that EVERYONE knew was illegal...

So they can laugh some more when the judge sentences him to three years behind bars...

There are a lot of ethnic Ukrainians in the US. Using Russia's logic, we should invade, but that would be dumb, right?

Biden is the leader of European nations? The Europeans should take action, instead of standing around wondering what to do. They obviously haven't figured it out yet.

The good 'ole days, when Trump was in office, and the dictators stayed within their borders.

Of course ...there a lot of work left to restore the US-Europe alliance after four years of Putin-adoration....

At this rate he’s doing a very bad at it.

The two year old orange baby that was mocked and laughed at by the Europeans did tremendous damage to the relationship...

He didn’t care about that, they didn’t think he was weak, he got them to pay out more for NATO defense. Biden can’t get literally any of these leaders to talk with him over the phone especially the ones in the ME.

Fortunately, as the Jan 6th hearings

Here we go, let’s pivot to Trump again….

So they can laugh some more when the judge sentences him to three years behind bars...

That’s not going to happen and Garland even knows that.

Biden speaks often of the world being in a generational struggle between democracies and autocracies that will set the global agenda for the coming decades. He aims to use the trip to show that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has “firmed up” democracies on the threats from autocracies in both Moscow and Beijing.

Speaks often, but do nothing. So far we have the following (which at least didn't happen under the previous administration):

NK testing nukes and missiles again.

Ukraine invasion

Venezuela back in business

Iran developing nukes whilst spending its sanctioned money

Now Nepal folding to China

Stop dawdling and give the Ukrainians the lethal weaponry they need right now.

They might be fighting for themselves and their country, but they're also fighting for democracy.

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

Biden has done an exceptional job with leadership. So much better than the insulting, ego driven narcissist the previous 4 years.

1 ( +6 / -5 )

Russia seems to be winning the sanctions war.

Some people can't understand that a country can have a strong currency but utterly rotten economic fundamentals.

Ukraine is at Europe's doorstep. What does Biden have to do with this?

Remember when Trump threatened to pull out of its NATO and end its other global commitments? The Europeans and much of the rest of the world freaked out. The world expects -- and hopes -- the US to play a leadership role in global initiatives, (regardless of what Naom Chomsky or your liberal-arts professor at college say. LOL)

Now that's hilarious - when your guy stood next to Putin at a Summit and praised him - guess you think Putin's invasion of Ukraine is "smart" too...

The two year old orange baby that was mocked and laughed at by the Europeans did tremendous damage to the relationship...

He didn’t care about that,

More comedy - everyone knows he has a soft skin and can't take being laughed at...he had an orange meltdown...

Fortunately, as the Jan 6th hearings

Here we go, let’s pivot to Trump again….

Who's to blame for almost ruining our European Alliance...likely at the behest of his banker Putin...

So they can laugh some more when the judge sentences him to three years behind bars...

That’s not going to happen and Garland even knows that.

Hmmmm......so now you're a member of Biden's DOJ....interesting...

Keep your head in the sand - MAGA-world is imploding as all Trump's own team turn on him...

Tell us again how Miller, Kellyanne, and Barr are all lying traitors...LOL...

Is this true?

How to compare?

Let's start with Russia.

Trump--No Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Biden-Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Give me narcissism when it goes along with peace and freedom.

As Bolton said, Putin didn't have to do anything with Trump's efforts to destroy NATO. Trump was his useful idiot and Putin didn't have to do anything.

-1 ( +3 / -4 )

As Bolton said, Putin didn't have to do anything with Trump's efforts to destroy NATO. Trump was his useful idiot and Putin didn't have to do anything.

And Putin didn't have to do anything to appease America during Trump's reign either. Trump was the biggest Putin groupie out there. I think he was impressed by the topless pics of Putin on the horse.

Oh, and he envied that Putin had already overthrown the Russian government, while Trump was still working on how to overthrow his own. Can't forget that.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

Biden is also set to relaunch his idea for a global infrastructure investment program meant to counter China's influence in the developing world, which he previously had called “Build Back Better World" and had introduced at the 2021 G7 summit.

Gotta work on that grammar Joe.

Putin certainly didn't have to invade Ukraine---and he didn't until Joe waddled into the office.

And how did Trump destroy NATO? The other 29 or so countries couldn't hold themselves together?

Doesn't sound like a cohesive group then, does it?

And what is NATO doing now to prevent Russia from invading Ukraine?

0 ( +3 / -3 )

And who's going to punish the USA ?

there's a rude awakening coming in the near future.

Whatever Biden says the Whitehouse and the Supreme Court will just make him look like an incompetent buffoon.

Can't trust what Biden says or kishida for that matter.

USA has its own civil war coming soon .

Biden has done an exceptional job with leadership.

For example?

So much better than the insulting, ego driven narcissist the previous 4 years.

But at least or enemies feared Trump and they did take his call, even the ones that despised him

How has NATO done so far at disposing Putin? Seems more emboldened than ever.

Trump was his useful idiot and Putin didn't have to do anything.

Not according to Mueller.

Why should NATO prevent Russia from invading Ukraine? The Russian Ambassador to the US said on national TV that THERE WOULD BE NO INVASSION OF UKRAINE...

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/russia-ukraine-ambassador-anatoly-antonov-no-such-plans-invasion-face-the-nation/

Oh, that's right, that was another Russian lie...

Well, as to what NATO is doing to help Ukraine, I suggest you ask all the troops inside Russian tanks that have been decapitated by Javelins and NLAWS....or the pilots that have been shot down with Stingers and Starstreaks... Good luck finding them...

Oh, well, I guess since everyone believed Hitler too . . .

Surprised?

Will have a chance to ask the replacements that keep filing in.

or you can put it another way, Trump kept them all in check and prevented war. Leadership!

Does the world need leadership where every little country folds to China and Russia, war starts, nuke arms race starts etc. Because this is what's happening right now under Biden.

Trump congratulated Putin on the invasion before his handlers told him to knock it off.

I don't know how many times Trump can praise and believe Putin without his fans thinking he's weak.

It's illogical.

Agree with you there - Putin, Lavrov, the Ambassador - all lying like Hitler - acting like him too...

Oh, that's right, that was another Russian lie...

Absolutely not....are you?

Indeed - filing in then getting sent home in a box - if they're lucky...

President Biden for all his short comings, has supported Ukraine,

His age and the continued pressure on his presidency, is a reflection of a generation that has refused to politically excel beyond huffing and puffing on social media

A nation reap what it sows........

1 ( +2 / -1 )

Can we believe your numbers?

You don't have to, just look at the local and state primaries. Democrats keep losing and they're losing blacks and Hispanics (24%) so basically, they can focus on the previous President 24/7 and we will focus on the issues that concern most Americans.

-1 ( +2 / -3 )

It sure is - I can't wait until Melania turns on Trump and you call her a lying coward.

That's not going to happen.

Yea, you would have said the same thing about Miller, KellyAnne, and Uvanka before last week also...LOL....

Or DeSantis declares himself as the new Great MAGA KIng,

If he did, just as good, in fact, maybe you guys will put the Russian thing to rest. LOL

So who do you support - Trump or DeSantis? The hate is already bubbling up between the two....get ready for Trump to say DeSantis' father was a terrorist and DeSantis to say Trump has small hands...

https://thehill.com/homenews/campaign/590071-trump-desantis-tensions-ratchet-up/

By the way, Jason Miller, Bill Barr, KellyAnne Conway, and IVANKA think you're hilarious too....

Never met them.

You loved them until last week - hate them now....LOL... Flip!
