Here Is What Joe Biden Got Wrong In His State Of The Union Address

President Joe Biden made several incorrect or outright false claims during his opening comments at Tuesday night’s State of the Union address. In his opening remarks, Biden made several exaggerated statements about the State of the economy, including that he had produced a record “12 million new jobs.”  According to Biden, he had created more jobs than any president. Biden neglected to mention that many of these positions were filled by workers who had to leave temporarily because of the pandemic.

Biden quickly pointed out that gas prices had decreased significantly, but he didn’t mention that they had reached record highs during his watch.

Biden said inflation is decreasing, but he didn’t mention that it has been high throughout his presidency and had reached a 40-year high under his care. He also said that take-home income has increased for Americans, but he failed to note that record inflation has significantly reduced those gains.

Biden stated that the pandemic that interrupted supply chains and Putin’s War with Ukraine had disrupted energy and food supplies and were to blame for the astronomical inflation rates under his presidency. Biden forgot to mention that his administration saw a surge in inflation rates and that his $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan was a major contributor to that surge.

Biden urged congressional cooperation in his speech. Biden told his Republican colleagues that if the parties could work together as they had in the past Congress, they should be able to work this term. In his opinion, the people have sent us a clear message: fight for fight’s sake, power for power, and conflict for conflict’s sake will not get us anywhere. And his vision for the country has always been to restore the nation’s soul, rebuild the backbone of America: the middle class, and unite the country.

Of course, Democrats held majorities in both the House and Senate during the last Congress, and they could easily pass most of their agenda items with bipartisan support thanks to the support of Vice President Kamala Harris. But in 2022, the people of the United States opted for a split government, giving the Republicans control of the House of Representatives. The American people have spoken, and contrary to what  President Biden has said, they want the irresponsibility of one-party tyranny restrained.

Biden repeatedly has pleas for “unity” and “bipartisanship,” but surveys reveal that Americans have never had faith in his capacity to accomplish this. On the other hand, he has never sought unity.

In April of last year, Biden’s former press secretary Jen Psaki confessed that he had never planned to cooperate with Republicans on Capitol Hill. She said the president’s idea of uniting is not about Congress but the people. Psaki added. For this reason, it is inaccurate to suggest that he’s talking about addressing bipartisanship.

Even more, evidence that  Biden’s plea for unity rings hollow is his Hitlerian primetime address, where he labeled millions of Trump supporters as a danger to democracy back in September. Right-wingers were harsh in their criticism of him, while leftists had varied views.
