Joe Biden: Media to Blame for Why Most Americans Don’t Feel Good About the Economy

Joe Biden: Media to Blame for Why Most Americans Don’t Feel Good About the Economy

“You all are not the happiest people in the world — what you report. And I mean it sincerely. It gets a more little — you get more legs when you’re reporting something that’s negative.”

On Friday, we learned that 336,000 jobs were added in September, which was nearly double what had been estimated by economists.

Naturally, the Biden White House wanted to crow about it, with Joe Biden himself stepping to the podium in the Roosevelt Room to inform people that “Bidenomics” was allegedly working:

We’re growing the economy from the middle out, the bottom up — not the top down.

And inflation is coming down at the same time.  It’s down 60 percent since last summer.  Core inflation was just 2.2 percent over the past three months.  And now we have the lowest inflation of any major economy in the world.


Folks, Bidenomics is about investing in America and investing in American workers.

And businesses are investing more in manufacturing than ever before and are bringing the supply chains home.

As per the norm, he didn’t take many questions from the press, but one, in particular, seemed to set him off, and it was about why a majority of Americans “don’t feel positive or feel good news about the economy.”

Biden’s response was incredible. He basically said the polls were garbage and that people really knew that they were “better off financially than they were before.” Further, he blamed the liberal media and Republicans for why the polls consistently showed the American people gave him low marks on his handling of the economy:

Well, first of all, you just heard the news today, too.  They haven’t heard it.  I think the people — those 300-plus-thousand people who got jobs feel better about the economy.

I’d — look — I got to choose my words here.

You all are not the happiest people in the world — what you report.  And I mean it sincerely.  It gets a more little — you get more legs when you’re reporting something that’s negative.

I don’t mean — I don’t mean you’re picking on me or I’m — just the nature of things.

You turn on the television, and there’s not a whole lot about “boy saves dog as he swims in the lake.”  You know?  To say — you know, it’s about, you know, “somebody pushed the dog in a lake.”

I mean, I — I get it.  But — if you just listen to what’s going on around the world, there’s reason for people to be concerned.  There’s reason for people to be concerned — what’s going on with — in Russia.  There’s reason to be concerned about what’s going on in other parts of the world.

I think that the American people are smart as hell in knowing what their interests are.  I think they know they’re better off financially than they were before.  It’s a fact.

And all the — all that data — all that polling stuff shows they think — they’re more positive about the economy than they’ve been, more positive about their jobs, et cetera.

I just think if you — let me put it this way: If you just watched what happened last week in the Congress, how excited are you going to be about much of anything?


Honestly, the arrogance on display during that brief exchange was astonishing, even for this president. This has nothing to do with any supposed negative/bad news spin the media puts on the economy. It has everything to do with what Americans experience every day: rising grocery, home, and gas prices among other things.

Further, a closer examination of the numbers behind the jobs report shows it’s not as rosy as it first appears:

As for Biden bragging about inflation “coming down,” well, the facts don’t care about his feelings:

Really looking forward to the presidential debates and town halls next year when someone in the crowd questions Biden about their dire financial situation and Biden looks them straight in the eye and tells them they are actually much better off than they think they are.

Should go over really well.

Right Joe, it’s all the fault of the same media that covers for your ineptitude, criminal behavior and ever increasing dementia. It’s probably my fault too. Feel better?


That’s easy for YOU to say, Joe.

Leftists never except blame for their actions

“The media’s to blame,” Joe Biden said as he adjusted “The buck doesn’t stop here!” plaque on his desk..

Reality is to blame.

It takes a special kind of senility for Senile Joe to claim that the media are biased against him. LOL

“Really looking forward to the presidential debates and town halls next year”

Even if he runs (he’s not), do you actually think he will debate? Will come up with excuses, such as not wanting to give Trump legitimacy.

Ask Joe when is the last time he went grocery shopping or put gas in his car.

I’m sure his aides tell him everything is fine and the people love him as they kiss his ass. The media lies and also says everything is great.

Joe is also the Pathalogical Liar we have known for a long time.

Imagine how the average American would feel if the media told the truth. It would be torches and pitchforks time.

My real estate company is down 40% and my home service business is down 20% from last year. What does the media have to do with it?

When I was being fit, back in 2008, I would buy the 93/7 ground beef foe $1.88 a pound. In the same store where it is now $7.49 a pound. That’s part of why we don’t think are going well.

Clearly, more gaslight is required

“We’re growing the economy from the middle out, the bottom up — not the top down.”
Just like his Viagra works.
“BIDEN: “Inflation’s coming down!”
Yup, nailed it.

This is the reason the Dems want to keep counting Covid funds as ‘normal’ government spending, since that gets used as a baseline for the next budget (plus a yearly increase), and then the next…

The Democrats Propaganda Ministry does nothing but push government Propaganda, if they are working its a testament to human observation

$2.40 vs $3.50 gas
25% increase electric bill
25% increase auto insurance
Decrease in 401k value
20% increase steak
30% increase chicken
25% increase instant mashed potatoes
40% increase bread

Tell me how much better off we are?

    Don’t forget the increasingly stubborn/sticky aspects of inflation due to deliberate policy choices. A ten year US Treasury is currently paying 4.8% which is the highest rate since 2007. The problem here is the size of the National debt. In 2007 we had a National debt of about $10 Trillion while today it is above $32 Trillion. Both major credit rating agencies have lowered the US govt credit rating despite them being the epitome of don’t rock the boat, rent seeking establishment cronies. It isnt just new b home buyers hit, folks with low rate mortgages can’t sell and move b/c their interest cost would more than double with mortgage rates close to 8%. So less new home sales and less existing home sales…which means higher base prices due to lack of supply. Currently less than one million homes on the market v the normal 2 million+.

    The Federal govt is likely going to spend more on debt service payments this fiscal year than defense spending. This means either we stop spending on other things due to a crowd out effect or we borrow more $ to make existing debt payments. Govt gonna do the latter and we all know it, it will work for a little while longer….until it doesn’t.

    Then add stupid energy policy. A modern economy requires cheap energy. The increasing cost of fuel and electricity adds to the price of everything. It all has to be manufactured, assembled, shipped and trucked. Increase the costs and they get passed on to consumers. Then add in some businesses not able to compete b/c they couldn’t get the cheapest energy options while their competitors did and now less competition, fewer consumer choice of providers leads surviving businesses to raise prices.

    All these increased prices lead workers to demand wage increases b/c their paycheck has declined in real terms; purchasing power. Then add in automatic COLA increases for Social Security and near automatic increases for other govt programs, All this creates a viscous cycle where wages and govt spending are increasing to catch up to increased prices which in turn increase b/c of increased wages.

I’m confused, Joe. To which media are you referring? The same media that wouldn’t publish the story about Hunter’s laptop? The media that isn’t aware of the ongoing invasion over the U.S. southern border? THAT media??
