Forget about that jerk from W.V. (for a moment). Joe Biden has been doing a great job.

President Biden has protected:


President Obama's N. Atlantic Marine Monuments (protects fish stocks and whales)




Chaco Canyon in New Mexico



Bears Ears & Grand Staircase Escalante in Utah



Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska from oil and gas development



Tongass Rain Forest in S.E. Alaska



The Cooper River Watershed and Bristol Bay in Alaska



And don't forget he and Jill have now protected "Commander" too.

Chuck Schumer is majority leader of the Senate. Ever watch him speak on the Senate floor? He always reads prepared remarks.

He really is doing a great job. Not that "our liberal media" will say that.

Bloomberg: Biden's Economic Performance Has Proved Unbeatable

https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2021-12-20/president-biden-s-economic-performance-has-proved-unbeatable

U.S. financial markets are outperforming the world by the biggest margin in the 21st century, and with good reason: America’s economy improved more in Joe Biden's first 12 months than any president during the past 50 years notwithstanding the contrary media narrative contributing to dour public opinion.

Exceptional returns from dollar-denominated assets, especially the S&P 500 Index in both absolute terms and relative to its global counterparts, can be attributed to record-low debt ratios enabling companies to reap the biggest profit margins since 1950. Corporate America is booming because the Biden administration's Covid-19 vaccination programs and $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan reduced the jobless rate to 4.2% in November from 6.2% in February, continuing an unprecedented rate of decline during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Consider that real, or inflation adjusted, gross domestic product surged at an average annual rate of 5.03% in each of the first three quarters of 2021, and is poised to expand 5.6% for the year based on the average estimate of more than 80 economists surveyed Bloomberg. If that forecast proves accurate, it would be more than 2.8 times the average between 2000 and 2019 and double the average since 1976.

All of which makes Biden's first year in the White House the standout among the seven previous presidents, based on 10 market and economic indicators given equal weight. According to data compiled by Bloomberg, no one comes close to matching Biden's combination of No. 1 and No. 2 rankings for each of the measures: ...

3. The best president of my lifetime - hands down

He is the best president in my lifetime, he is efficient and effective. Look how much he has accomplished in less than one year.

American corporate media knows how good he is and that is why they are attacking him and "overlooking" all his accomplishments.

4. He's doing what he can with the mess he was left by Asshole.

But I hope he realizes he may have to do things he never thought he would to counter useful morons like Mansion and sent traitors like Hawley, McConnell and Cruz into a stroke. Like erasing debt.

6. President Joe protected Bristol Bay and the Cooper River watershed on his 1st day in office.

The man knows what he is doing despite the non stop bullshit from the media about how he is
failing. Tell me how is Joe B. @ fault for a suicide bomb attack in Afghanistan, Joe Manchin's
fealty to the fossil fuel industry, or idiots who refuse to get vaccinated because they read Russian
produced lies on Facebook or hear crap on hate radio or Fox News.
