Former vice president Joe Biden is back in Delaware on yet another vacation despite the sad state of the country. Baby formula is still nearly impossible to find, inflation continues to worsen, and gas prices are the highest they’ve ever been.
As our country is in a crisis between the baby formula shortage, the highest gas prices ever, a worsening economy, and 15,000 migrants coming up through Mexico towards our border he decided this past weekend was perfect for yet another vacation. He headed out to one of his two Delaware beach homes adding to the 188 full or partial days away from the White House spent vacationing since he took office. THat’s more than a quarter of his time occupying the presidency that he’s spent on vacation.
Yet people complained about the occasional golfing trip Trump would take to his own golf courses?
“Every time I get a chance, I go home to Delaware. You think I’m joking. I’m not,” the former vice president said in February.
Out of the 188 full or partial days away from the White House, 130 were spent at his Delaware properties, 52 at Camp David, and six in Nantucket.
If that pace holds, he will spend roughly 553 days away from the White House, which he has referred to as a “gilded cage,” over his first term, or 1,106 days over two terms.
While creepy uncle Joe is kicking back on the beach forgetting that he’s supposed to be in charge of the country 74% of baby formula products are out of stock in the US today. Several states have over 87% shortage of baby formula.
He admitted he was warned about the current baby formula shortage and its seriousness months ago.
“There’s a public relations angle to it. If the country is in crisis, it’s better for the president to stay in the White House,” he said. “I used to get mad at Bush when he’d be seen chopping trees when the country was going through all these problems. I thought it showed an insensitivity to the needs of the American people.”
The White House did not respond to a request for comment, but spokesman Andrew Bates previously stated that “presidents of the United States are constantly on the job, regardless of their location — whether they’re on a state visit overseas or just 100 miles from the White House for a short trip to Wilmington.” That statement came when it was reported that Biden became the president who spent the most time on personal travel in the inaugural year of his administration.
Former President Donald Trump spent 381 days away from the White House while in office, and former President Barack Obama spent 328 days out over two terms. Topping them both was former President George W. Bush, who spent 1,020 days away from the White House during his two terms, mostly at his ranch in Crawford, Texas, or at the family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine. Former President Bill Clinton was gone a comparatively few 345 days.
“I can confirm we are not going to be providing information about the comings and goings of the president’s grandchildren or people visiting him in Delaware,” then-White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in August.
“It can be a kind of false causality to suggest people think a president is taking too much vacation and therefore they’re unhappy,” said presidential historian and Rutgers University history, journalism, and media studies professor David Greenberg. “It actually runs the other way. People are unhappy with the president, therefore he’s taking too much vacation.”
Leadership in this country is non-existent. We have a bunch of mini tyrants fighting with one another about who gets to dictate our lives. Using the casualties of late to remove our 2A rights.
We remember what happens to an unarmed civilization right?
1911 – Turkey disarmed its citizens, and between 1915 – 1917 they murdered 1.5 million Armenians.
1929 – Russia disarmed its citizens, and between 1929 – 1953 they murdered 20 million Russians.
1935 – China disarmed its citizens, and between 1948 – 1952 they murdered 20 million Chinese.
1938 – Germany disarmed its citizens, and between 1939 – 1945 they murdered 16 million Jews.
1956 – Cambodia disarmed its citizens, and between 1975 – 1977 they murdered 1 million Educated people.
1964 – Guatemala disarmed its citizens, and between 1964 – 1981 they murdered 100,000 Mayan Indians.
1970 – Uganda disarmed its citizens, and between 1971 – 1979 they murdered 300,000 Christians.
Australia has disarmed its citizens, and a year later the homicide rate in the largest province is up 300%. The burglaries of seniors are “dramatically” up.
