Biden’s Inaction Following the Overturning of Roe is Driving the Left’s Rejection of Him

Biden’s Inaction Following the Overturning of Roe is Driving the Left’s Rejection of Him

There is little to nothing that Biden can do about the Supreme Court’s decision on Roe, but his lack of rage is being perceived by the left as a form of apostasy.

Over the last two weeks, articles in the New York Times and the Washington Post have openly questioned whether Biden is fit to lead his party and the country for another four years.

This is not about inflation or high gas prices. The writers of these think pieces could not possibly care less about those issues.

This is being driven almost entirely by what they perceive as Biden’s lack of action following the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe vs. Wade.

There is not much Biden really can do about the decision, but his lack of outrage is turning the left against him.

I first heard this idea advanced by conservative Twitter star Stephen L. Miller, aka @Redsteeze, but I fully concur.

Miller recently wrote at the Washington Examiner:

Despite having a six-week heads-up via a leaked draft of the Supreme Court’s decision, the Democratic Party appeared caught completely off foot by the Dobbs ruling, which effectively overturned Roe v. Wade.

With abortion laws now the purview of the states, there is also growing consternation in progressive media circles. They fear that President Joe Biden’s tepid response to the ruling, which centered on his offering a brief statement and then boarding an airplane and flying out of the country, has been inadequate at best. Biden mustered some anger at the NATO summit in Spain, but policy-wise, he has conceded there’s not much the White House will do…

As far as Biden is concerned, his administration has gone from insider whispers of an aged out-of-touch president, who some party outsiders are already placing seeds to replace in 2024 (hello, California Gov. Gavin Newsom), to loud shouts and flat-out revolt.

For confirmation of this line of thinking, look no further than this recent piece by Rebecca Traister in NY Magazine:

Joe Biden’s Dobbs Response Has Been Breathtakingly Awful Why can’t the president show some fight?

This weekend, the Washington Post published an article that chronicled the lumbering strategy of Joe Biden’s administration in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s overturning of Roe v. Wade. The story describes how, rather than ringing every alarm available, rather than taking every opportunity to signal that we are in a moment of national emergency, the president is instead pointing a vilifying finger — not at the Republican Party (no, he referred to them as his “friends” in his news conference on Friday), but at the very people who have been fighting with every fiber of their being to keep abortion access a reality. Joe Biden is talking tough to the activists.

As the White House’s departing communications director, Kate Bedingfield, said in a statement conveying her boss’s attitude toward those pushing him to act more aggressively in response to Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization: “Joe Biden’s goal in responding to Dobbs is not to satisfy some activists who have been consistently out of step with the mainstream of the Democratic Party. It’s to deliver help to women who are in danger and assemble a broad-based coalition to defend a woman’s right to choose now, just as he assembled such a coalition to win during the 2020 election.”

The statement was breathtaking in its awfulness, including its emphasis on coalition-building in service of Joe Biden’s election, emphasis that served to dismiss the advocates who have themselves been a key part of electing Democrats over generations.

Biden can do little to nothing about the Supreme Court’s decision on Roe, but the left perceives his lack of rage as a form of apostasy.

If they kick him to the curb before 2024, this will be one of the main reasons.

Joe’s inaction just proved he really IS a devout Catholic.

Yeah, well if you wanted somebody who could get something done you shouldn’t have foisted a senile mental retard on the country.

Now you proggies can go fuck yourselves good and hard. Have fun with that!

The Gentle Grizzly | July 13, 2022 at 5:26 pm

I can’t say that. I’m an infidel a non-believer.

What I CAN say is: he’s a sick, clueless old man. Were it not for his power-hungry wife he’d not be president. He’d be home, away from the press like Reagan was in his decline.

henrybowman | July 13, 2022 at 5:34 pm

“Sundowner jettisoned for lack of rage.”
These truly must be the End Times.

E Howard Hunt | July 13, 2022 at 5:34 pm

Joe needs to take dramatic action to demonstrate his rage. Here’s the deal: Locate a couple of coke slags that Hunter has recently impregnated and televise Joe performing a double abortion using only a rusty coat hanger and a potato peeler. Liz Warren can act as nurse. Fauci can take the remains and feed them to the dogs he is torturing.

“Awful Why can’t the president show some fight?”

Because he’s a tired, doddering old man.

Perhaps he’s just forgotten what all the fuss was about.

Well, it appears the story about the 10-year-old was true after all. “Appears” being the key word. It’s certainly possible, and I can’t think of a plausible explanation for how they managed to fake it, but it stinks to high heaven.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to Milhouse. | July 13, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    The backing and forthing about this from both sides is what smells so much, at least in my view.

    Paul in reply to Milhouse. | July 13, 2022 at 6:32 pm

    It appears the rapist is an illegal, so they stepped on yet another rake.

    Martin in reply to Milhouse. | July 13, 2022 at 6:39 pm

    Note: I don’t believe this to be the case because of the multiple places it could come apart and blow up in the faces of the participants in such a conspiracy.

    but

    How to fake it: Find a real raped 10 year old. Reasonable high chance in a state with almost 12 million people. Pretend the pregnancy and abortion happened. All of the information about the 10 year old will be sealed. Most of the people involved in the investigation will be adamantly pro-choice social workers and doctors. Would people manufacture this to back up a false story? Absolutely.

    Could a monster rape a 10 year old and get her pregnant? Absolutely.

    Should a girl in this situation be allowed an abortion? I would lean toward yes. There is the rape which is a evil act and puts the girl in a position with no choice on her part. Additionally a 10 year old girl will be at no small risk of complications some of which could be life threatening.

    Nothing will make this not a tragedy.
    The baby ,or whatever you want to call it to make yourself fell better about killing it, is still an innocent party. An abortion no matter the reason will just be another tragedy no matter what some people will say.

      Ironclaw in reply to Martin. | July 13, 2022 at 7:17 pm

      The only way to resolve killing the baby is that it’s mother would be physically incapable of delivery. It would kill her, almost certainly.

        Milhouse in reply to Ironclaw. | July 13, 2022 at 8:37 pm

        Seems reasonable to me, but I’m not a doctor, let alone a specialist in such cases with the expertise to determine this.

        But if it’s the case that the pregnancy is certain to endanger the mother’s life eventually, and the baby is eventually going to have to be killed, then it’s best to do it immediately and not wait for the danger to become imminent.

        I’ve heard talk that the mother’s-life exceptions in some of these laws speak of and “emergency”, and that doctors are interpreting this as meaning that they must wait until the mother is on the brink of death before acting. I don’t think that’s right or a reasonable interpretation of the law. If the danger has already been determined to be inevitable, and it’s only a matter of time, then I’d say the emergency is now.

      Dimsdale in reply to Martin. | July 14, 2022 at 9:19 am

      You mean, like a hoax or something?

      The Dems would never agree to that….okay, I laughed out loud as I read that.

    Ironclaw in reply to Milhouse. | July 13, 2022 at 7:15 pm

    Interesting that with all of the mandatory reporters out there that the State’s AG and the State crime lab had no clue about any of the reports. Wouldn’t you need a rape kit and/or a verification of pregnancy from a doctor? Either of those things would be known the law enforcement.

    The saddest part is the immoral, godless communists are actually celebrating the rape of a 10-year-old.

      Milhouse in reply to Ironclaw. | July 13, 2022 at 10:54 pm

      Well, it appears that the report was made, and the local cops were on it all this time. There’s no reason they would notify the state AG of an investigation in progress. The DA probably knew.

He has done a ton of damage to
America
I
Don’t know WTF they are thinking

Could the panic surrounding Pres. Biden’s lack of apparent outrage reveal a greater fear by the Left: that their core weapons against sane America, fury and tantrums, are losing effectiveness?

Not to defend the pedophile-in-chief, but what exactly is he supposed to do? The court took the question out of the hands of the feds and put into the hands of the States.

    Dimsdale in reply to Ironclaw. | July 14, 2022 at 9:21 am

    Why, another EO, of course!

    The_Mew_Cat in reply to Ironclaw. | July 14, 2022 at 1:00 pm

    There is actually plenty he could do to show some fight. Or actually Kamala Harris, since Joey is too old and decrepit, but he could issue the executive orders to enable it. She could go on a million abortion midterm campaign tour, holding huge Trump-style rallies in National Parks, where State Law does not apply. She could have a whole crew of abortionists with her to give out free abortions in tents. Hold a rally a day with a goal of 10000 abortions a day. Do 9 month abortions, paid for by big money donors. And Biden could issue executive orders so that the parks can be used in this manner. I can’t think of a better way for the Joe-Harris team to rally the base. Show some initiative. Take some risks. That is what the base expects.

The lack of basic understanding on the part of many leftists about how our Republic functions, separation of powers, Constitutional limits or in some cases much of anything is destroying the d/prog. They have spent decades brainwashing many of their supporters that the POTUS is a philosopher King who has all sorts of powers if only he would choose to use them.

Their own propaganda campaign is causing the immense discontent and frustration inside their coalition. The baying mob demands Biden do ‘something’, they don’t specify whay exactly or just where this magical power springs from but they really believe Biden is refusing to exercise it to accomplish their goals. Delicious irony.

    This is probably the best analysis of the problem, that Americans are largely clueless about the way our Constitutional republic is designed to work. This ignorance is clearly due to the poor quality of our public education system, unfortunately aided and abetted by the 44th president’s infamous deceptive declaration that he didn’t need Congress because he had a “pen and an phone” to do anything he wanted to. Too many of his acolytes actually believe this, and now the 46th suffers the consequences of the 44th’s hubris and arrogance. Score one again for the 44th.

    I respectfully disagree Chief,

    They understand it fully with its fairness, checks and balances- that’s exactly what they DO NOT WANT!

    They want the emperor ( them) to rule with the iron fist under the Marxist guise of “democracy” ( 2 wolves and 1 lamb voting on dinner) and they keep the “lower class” hungry and fighting itself so they cant focus on the ruling class ( which is what led to the American Revolution being possible- they do NOT want that history repeating itself)

    They understand a “person: may be smart but “people” are generally stupid and all mobs are ruled by emotion and kept in line by numbers.

    What they are experiencing is the numerically small but highly vocal “true Marxists” who are all in trying to force their “evil will” on the “left masses” and discovering that even “liberals'” ( by the traditional definition) are not true socialists (by definition) and they are trying to intimidate them into compliance ( another standard Marxist tactic)

      CommoChief in reply to taurus the judge. | July 14, 2022 at 11:04 am

      The d/prog leaders understand for sure. No question. I am not referring to the puppeteers. I am referring to the puppets.

      The average d/prog foot soldier possess a great deal of exploitable ignorance. The hyperbolic baying of the leftist mob demonstrates that. The man on the street interviews asking ‘why are you protesting and what do want’ reflect that. These folks don’t have a clue about how our institutions function or why they were designed that way. To them the constitution is an obstacle that denies their utopia.

        taurus the judge in reply to CommoChief. | July 14, 2022 at 11:48 am

        I see, I stand corrected.

        A good drone only needs the most basic of commands because if they develop knowledge and understanding they will cease to be drones.

The Left doesn’t care about rules or laws. They believe he is supposed to crush their enemies. They’re not seeing any crushing.

CBStockdale | July 14, 2022 at 9:17 am

These progressives who think the Supreme Court is a legislative body will go crazy if a bill is enacted creating a national abortion right and the Court (properly) strikes it down, citing the 10th Amendment.

Capitalist-Dad | July 14, 2022 at 9:21 am

Let’s stop pretending that the brain dead, “Weekend at Bernie’s” empty suit, Prez Dullard, is actually in charge. He is the refrigerated corpse Democrats roll out every time they need a “president” to dictate some new policy that destroys America and constitutionalism a little more. Abortion is not the only genocidal part of their agenda, it’s just faster than strangling the economy to starve people, or killing them from exposure caused by green energy policy. Destruction is the Democrat aim.
