      Exactly as the Trump administration and Taliban negotiated, but of course we don't talk about that.

        I’m giving Joe an “A for effort” insofar as he’s actually trying to govern in spite of the usual Republican “obstructionism on GP,” sabotage by the two DINOs in his own party and the fact that he inherited a giant crap sandwich from the golfer-in-chief.

          Getting us out of Afghanistan is an automatic C grade all by itself (something Obama should have done several years before)... Not excited about much else from his administration so far, but hopefully they'll get a handle on the economy vs. inflation vs. covid conundrum this year, Supreme Court shenanigans notwithstanding.

              I am giving him a B.

              1) He got the bipartisan infrastructure bill done. That is big big deal we have been talking about that for over 10 plus year and we need that invest to fix our roads, bridges, airports and combat climate change
              2) His administration has got the vaccine and booster availability up and free. It very impressive and he does get hit for not getting the testing better but at least they are now executing that part
              3) The economy is very strong, inflation is a problem but inflation is problem across the world because oft the Covid shutdowns to the Supply Chains.
              4) Started to rebuild alliances that Trump messed up. Still need to work on countering China but it's start.

                C

                Got us out of Afghanistan, though in doing so he suffered a massive wound - a huge bleeder from the bad optics on that 'Last Day Out of Bagram,' with Afghans clinging to the outer shell of the Globemaster as it lifted off. That is THE EXACT MOMENT when it all started tumbling down - his approval rating dropped 25 points overnight. I think a big chunk of his fall that day was based on a kind of misunderstanding: Almost everybody watching that day reasonably assumed - based on their desperate behaviors - that we were watching the very LAST aerial evacuations. That day had the same feel as those chopper evacuations off the roof of the Embassy in Saigon. But nope ... there were two more weeks of evacs from an airport 10 miles away across town. If everybody watching that day KNEW THAT, then Joe's wound would've been far less serious.

                Biden surprised me by suffering from fantasy wishful thinking when it came to his legislative agenda. Damn near a life-long member of the Senate, it's a little hard to believe he was so naive! Did Manchin and Sinema give him the high hard one? Damn right they did - over and over and over and over and over ....... at some point you gotta figure maybe he likes it. He keeps on believing there's a "super secret compromise" just 'round the corner, even though at one point a couple weeks ago, Manchin kinda snapped - got real angry with some reporters. Not good.

                It's too bad ... Build Back Better was laudably ambitious, and would've been just the kind of shot in the arm we need.

                Somebody hit the nail on the head recently: "We elected Joe Biden to stop the crazy, and right the ship. Not to be this latter-day FDR he's trying to be. He didn't run on this stuff, and it doesn't feel right for right now."

                  C (I think I reset the curve when I was the first that wasn't a D/F -- lol)

                  Like with a doctor, I think a President's primary order of business should be first do no harm.

                  Much credit of course has to go to Sinema and Manchin in this regard, because without them, President Biden would do harm on mulitple levels.

                  First and foremost, is the reconciliation bill. It's a massive progressive Wishlist and money we don't have to spend. We have major inflation, and they want to spend another $4 trillion plus.
                  Second, you have the fact they are trying a massive overreach of the feds interfering with state elections, which should be under the control of states. There needs to be very clear civil rights violations in play to justify the feds dictating to states and local entities how they run elections.
                  Third, and most critical, to a large extent the continued abuse of reconciliation, but even far more so, the elimination of the 60 vote clouture rule, is creating chaos and as Sinema correctly says, elimination of the 60 vote cloture will result in whipsaw legislation and policy changes every time control of DC changes. I know the Dems are largely willing to risk this, because they believe that the types of things they will pass, social programs paying voters, etc., they don't believe the other party will rescind, but that's also short sighted, because while that might be true, it opens up the door for the GOP to force through similarly partisan legislation next time they control both chambers and the white house.

                  So, that's the first do no harm. If BBB had passed or the 60 vote cloture rule removed at his insistence, then he would have an F, since that's the lowest grade possible.

                  While he's largely ridden the Trump administrations work on Covid, he's done a solid job. Should he have moved on testing sooner? Maybe. Very easy to point to many things in hindsight. Many said Delta would be the last wave. Now they are saying Omicron will be.

                  I think he should have done more to try and ease transportation issues, but with the caveat that this is largely outside of what a POTUS or DC should be addressing. But, when he made the promise, even if it was one he had no business making, he should have done more.

                  He also gets credit, or technically not dinged, by the SCOTUS blocking his "private" employer Vax mandate. That was a massive executive overreach, and again, his grade would have dropped if the SCOTUS didn't bail him out by nixing it.

                  Basically, I think he's been average, hence the C. Not awful. Not great.

                  He bungled Afghanistan, specifically setting a "before 9/11 anniversary" and created the bad optics, whether 100% deserved or not. You know you ****ed up when the MSM are playing the videos of chaos at airports, embassies, etc. non stop, that results from a Dem's action, but as pointed out, that was in large part a continuation of what was agreed by the previous administration, but that didn't force him to screw it up, or try and use it as a campaign type publicity stunt (out by the anniversary). He should have just put plans in place, and then the exit date should have been whatever the logistics indicated.

                  Anyway, those are my random thoughts and why I gave him a C.

                          I’m not giving him credit for Afghanistan because, he ****ed it all up on the way out. They dunked on us, teabagged us, chased us out, and got a lot of our shit for their trouble.

                          In the end, the Taliban beat our ass, and that was completely unnecessary.

                          And, because of that, we showed the world that we’re nothing but a paper Tiger.

                          That war was stupid from the beginning. Now, had he armed and supplied the Tajiks on the way out, told them, go end the Talibans shit, and this is your country. Then I’d give him credit for that.

                          But no. His Afghan strategy was probably even more retarded than 43-45.

                          We’ll see what consequences come from that after the olympics. China and Russia are now teammates and feel emboldened by our weakness. Hopefully it doesn’t cause another war, or international incidents, but we’ll see.

                          On his domestic policy, um, shutting down oil production then sucking Arab dick to try to get them to lower the price, vax mandates, highest inflation in American history. Yeah, No Let’s go Brandon. But **** Joe Biden. He’s the type of piece of shit that makes me hope hell is real.

                          But in the end I don’t blame Joe Biden for this. I blame the cuckservatives for cucking out when we needed them the most. So **** everyone. Just hope I make it to Palmer before shit pops off.

                              I gave him a C. His basic inability to get anything done and his use of OSHA and Federal contract leverage to force people to do something keeps him from getting a B. And really those things should result in an F, but I get he's scared.

                                : New York City hate crimes complaints rose nearly 100% in 2021 and several types of bias crimes also skyrocketed – in some cases more than 340%, police statistics show, as the Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg says he is expanding his office’s hate crimes unit to address the uptick in racially motivated attacks.

                                    Rating for Biden in his first year?

                                    Most hammered president in the modern era. I can't think of many that come close.

                                        Yep.

                                        Joe's taking the blame for all of tRump's damage - not unlike the way Obama took the blame for Bush's wars, economic crisis, etc.
