If Biden Wants to Turn It All Around, the Answer Is Staring at Him From West Virginia

I say “Biden” but what I really mean is the administration that’s really running things. There’s not one guy in charge, there’s a group of people in charge and the job they’re doing is so bad that the entire Democrat Party is suffering for it.

More accurately, the country is suffering for it and the Democrat’s stock is falling among the people faster than an anvil in a vat of whipped cream.

This isn’t an issue of circumstance. Democrats can blame COVID, Putin, or even Trump, but at the end of the day, they are the ones that took a situation from bad to worse with COVID, solved to chaos with the border, and stable to war breaking out with foreign policy.

But Biden can solve a lot of problems in one fell swoop. He can kill a lot of birds with just one stone and begin turning it all around now, and he’s even being given the answer.

All he has to do is listen to West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and his advice about how to handle our energy problems. As Nick Arama highlighted, Manchin has the right idea about how to put America back on the right course and even keep the Democrat Party afloat in the coming years:

“The entire world is watching as Vladimir Putin uses energy as a weapon in an attempt to extort and coerce our European allies,” Manchin said in a statement Monday. “While Americans decry what is happening in Ukraine, the United States continues to allow the import of more than half a million barrels per day of crude oil and other petroleum products from Russia during this time of war.

“This makes no sense at all and represents a clear and present danger to our nation’s energy security,” he said. “If there was ever a time to be energy independent, it is now.”

As Arama wrote, Biden should listen to Manchin but the chances of him doing so are abysmal.

How do we know that?

Because Manchin has had a lot of great ideas since the beginning of the Biden administration and yet, no one is listening to him. In fact, Biden’s administration has been at war with Manchin for some time. Funny enough, Biden’s popularity is crashing and Manchin’s isn’t.

Herein lies the deeper issue with ignoring Manchin, though.

Manchin might be a Democrat and while there’s a lot to disagree with him on, he’s clearly still looking out for the health and well-being of the country. The answers he’s feeding to the Biden administration are the ones that the administration could use to see this country rise again.

But they aren’t. They’re actively ignoring Manchin. Moreover, they’re actively ignoring us.

I’ve been repeating this time and again but the theme of Joe Biden’s administration has been abandonment. He and his administration have abandoned us in many ways and it’s not going to get any better. Biden clearly answers to a different set of orders outside of the ones we give him. The radicals that have taken control of the Democrat Party have set us on a crash course and Biden has no intention of turning away from that.

It would appear that even popularity isn’t going to sway Democrats now.

The State of the Union tonight will feature a lot of rosy talk about the future but the future will only be good if we get the people who have no desire to answer to us out of public office. This train is out of control and we need to put a lot of focus on getting it back into the hands of people who actually care about it.

Vote accordingly.
