Are Biden Supporters Already Feeling Voter's Remorse?

It’s not even a week into Joe Biden’s presidency, and supporters are already expressing voter’s remorse. It seems that “Orange Man Bad” only goes so far, doesn’t it?

The activist media has been trying to manufacture excitement for the newly-inaugurated president, but they don’t seem to be having much success. Indeed, the reaction from people who voted for him further shows that they were voting against Trump more than for Biden.

Left-leaning Twitter users have been complaining about how Biden is spending his first days in the Oval Office, taking issue with his seeming inattention to some of his campaign promises.

One Twitter user took issue with his decision to increase troops in Iraq and Syria. “My biggest fear of a Biden presidency was foreign policy. In just 3 days & he’s authorizing troop escalation in Iraq & Syria. I did not vote for this, did you? Has corporate media mentioned this? Is your rep funded by the MIC like mine?” she wrote

Others criticized Biden for seeming to walk back his promise of a $15 minimum wage. One user wrote, “How did we go from a $15 federal minimum wage to a $15 minimum wage for federal workers!? This is feeling very $600+$1400=$2000 all over again.

Another tweeted: “So is it true that Biden is not raising minimum wage to $15 till 2025? And no stimulus checks till the end of February? Why did we vote for this?

Even Dr. Naomi Wolf, who served as a political consultant for various Democratic candidates, had problems with Biden’s stance on lockdowns. She tweeted:

“If I’d known Biden was open to ‘lockdowns’ as he now states, which is something historically unprecedented in any pandemic, and a terrifying practice, one that won’t ever end because elites love it, I would never have voted for him.”

Filmmaker and author Mike Cernovich also posted two tweets from the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) showing their attitude toward the president before he took office and after. “Unions are getting exactly what they voted for,” he tweeted.

Unfortunately for the Democrats and the activist media, it seems that voters aren’t over the moon for their new president. This does not bode well for the Biden administration. If the initial responses to his presidency are any indication, the Democrats have much to fear when it comes to retaining power over both chambers of Congress in 2022 and the White House.

This is positive news for Republicans. It is doubtful that Biden’s term in the Oval Office will get much better. While the Democrats campaigned on being anti-Trump, it won’t be enough to govern in that fashion as well. Over the next four years, if the GOP allows the Democrats to continue to overstep and push for ridiculous policies, their chances of winning Congress in 2022 and the White House in 2024 are looking pretty good.
