Senator Marsha Blackburn: Biden Is a Lame-Duck President in His First Year


Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) mocked President Joe Biden’s inability to advance key priorities of his administration, awarding him the “lame-duck” title often given to presidents in the final year of their term.

In an interview with “Sunday Morning Futures” on Fox News, Blackburn pointed out that Biden has watched over multiple domestic and foreign policy failures.

“Joe Biden is the first president in history to become a lame-duck within the first year of his administration. And it has been a bad week and a bad year. Maria, look at the Supreme Court overruling them on the OSHA mandate. You look at globally what is happening with Russia, Kazakstan. You look at the Russia-Ukraine issue. You look at Iran shooting — going after President Trump, North Korea shooting off a missile, China with their daily antics, and this plus all that happened on Capitol Hill, with the filibuster, with their election takeover,” Blackburn explained.

The remark from the Tennessee senator follows a catastrophic week for the White House and congressional Democrats.

The Supreme Court blocked a vaccine mandate that would have required all businesses with at least 100 employees to mandate the coronavirus shot or weekly testing—a move that could have financially challenged small businesses across the country.

Furthermore, the president traveled to Georgia to demand a change to the rules of the U.S. Senate, largely because his administration failed to gain support for “voting rights” legislation.

However, despite public and private comments from Biden, Senators Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Joe Manchin (D-WV) stood up to members of their own party. They refused to lower the 60-vote threshold to advance certain pieces of legislation, known as the filibuster.

Previously, the opposition of the majority of senators, including Manchin, struck a blow to Biden’s hopes of passing his “Build Back Better” spending package.

    Biden probably IS a lame duck president, but not for Senator Marsha’s reasons. Biden, with his failure to deliver on the promises he made to his progressive base could turn many leftists and progressives against him, without his ability to win enough conservatives and rightists to make up for, much less surpass, defections by his progressive base. Biden made the same mistake that Gore and Lieberman (Israel’s yes-man) made: by taking blacks, liberals, leftists, labor, anti-war activists, and other progressives for granted. Many of them deserted to Ralph Nader’s Green Party, thus depriving the Democrats of just enough votes to enable “W” Bush to barely squeak by in 2000! Carter also bombed it with his base when he allowed dangerous war-mongers like Sam Nunn and Zbigniew Bresinski to take over his presidency’s military/foreign policy apparatus. The progressives voted for Ted Kennedy in the Primary and John Anderson in the general election. Obviously, Biden has not learned his lesson and will pay the price come November!

    Senator Blackburn is still saying the shots are Safe and Effective, when the CDC VARES website shows Millions Injured and Tens of Thousands Dead with only 1% of doctors in America reporting. Is she also willing to have covid shot passports ? Time will tell.

    He just might be, but not for the reasons that Senator Marsha says. Rather, Biden is alienating the very base of liberals and leftists that took a chance on him back in 2020 by his failure to deliver on his promises. That’s what will kill his bid for a second term.

      William, do you ever get tired of being wrong? Brandon kept his promise to shutdown the Keystone pipeline. He’s kept his promise instituting vaccine and mask mandates. He didn’t promise much of anything else. And how could seeing how he stayed holed up in his basement 99.9% of the time.

    That’s sweet Marsha, you’ve been lame from day 1. Could you be possibly any more useless to your constituents? She needs to be primaried. #VotetheBumsOut!
