Biden Just Had Such Bad Luck, Y’all

As usual, Ace of Spades had the best headline for this:

“Doctor” Jill Biden: Joe Biden Had
Such Wonderful Plans For the Presidency
He Usurped But Darnit, The Actual Task
of Governing Keeps Getting In The Way!

The First Lady was speaking at a gathering of wealthy Democratic donors at a private mansion on Nantucket Island in Massachusetts. Some of my readers may be asking, “Gee, Stacy, how much does a mansion on Nantucket cost?” If you have to ask, you can’t afford it. On the other hand, if you can afford a mansion on Nantucket, why the heck haven’t you hit my tip jar lately? But I digress . . .

What Jill Biden told these rich Democrat megadonors:

“[The President] had so many hopes and plans for things he wanted to do, but every time you turned around, he had to address the problems of the moment . . .
“He’s just had so many things thrown his way,” she said. “Who would have ever thought about what happened [with the Supreme Court overturning] Roe v Wade? Well, maybe we saw it coming, but still we didn’t believe it. The gun violence in this country is absolutely appalling. We didn’t see the war in Ukraine coming.” . . .
“I know there are so many nay-sayers who say we’ll get slammed in the midterms. Okay. The Republicans are working hard, they stick together, for good or evil. So, we just have to work harder,” she said.

Why is her husband such a helpless victim of bad luck? Why do these “problems of the moment” keep happening? Why are “so many things thrown his way”? Well, of course, it’s not as if the Leader of the Free World is actually powerless to influence events. Consider, for example, the Ukraine war. Robert Spencer notes that Jill Biden “did not address the likelihood that Putin invaded Ukraine because he saw with the withdrawal from Afghanistan that America’s political and military leadership was weak, distracted with wokeness, and both unable and unwilling to challenge him in any significant way.” Exactly — we don’t know when Putin decided to invade Ukraine, but a good guess would be last August, when the disastrously bungled Afghanistan withdrawal demonstrated Biden’s weakness and incompetence.

The things that have been “thrown at” Joe Biden are mostly the direct consequences of his own bungling and bad policy choices, not to mention the fact that the Democratic majority in Congress is controlled by its most extreme fringe, so that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer keep stumbling over themselves in a futile effort to appease AOC and her “Squad.”

And I also have to thank Ace for this relevant meme:

Yes, we all remember what Hunter Biden said about his stepmother.
