Thursday’s news revealed that inflation actually rose over the past month. It was at 8.2 percent with core CPI increasing to 6.6 percent. This is the fastest pace since 1982. This headline was the most important news for normal Americans. Inflation has ravaged their bank accounts for more than a year.
Meanwhile, Democrats on Earth-Two decided that it was a good time to do two unexplainable things. The first is to obsess about January 6th because the walls are closing in! Two, declare that Joe Biden is “rising” just before the crucial mid-term elections. While I have already covered the former, it is worth a bit of lambasting. Let’s get started.
Here’s Biden’s chief of staff Ronald Klain bragging about a poll showing President Obama at 45 percent approval. Simon Rosenberg, a Democrat hack, tries to do the same song and dance.

The cumulative effect of inflation since Biden’s election has resulted in Americans losing about 15% of their purchasing power. This is a large portion of every paycheck that’s now being used to purchase the same items they used to buy at lower prices. Klain and Rosenberg want to remind you that a random poll has shown that a small number of voters are like Joe Biden. This is a powerful message! “Yeah, our guy suckers, but he doesn’t suck as much as he did just a few months back!”
It is amazing to see the chief of staff for President Obama actually publish a poll that shows his boss has only 45 percent approval. Although I understand that Democrats love to redefine everything in order to suit their ever-changing sensibilities, 45 percent approval is historically terrible.
Donald Trump, for example, was at 43.4 percent approval the day before the 2018 mid-terms. Guess what the RCP average is for Biden today? It is 43.4 percent. Trump’s approval actually rose above 45 percent prior to the election. Did Rosenberg or Klain declare “Trump Rising” on the basis of that result? They didn’t, because that’s absurd. Any president who isn’t approved, or even by 10 points, as Biden is right now, will be shellacked in his first midterm.
Here are some facts for Democrats. These are the fundamentals of this election. The only thing that has changed is the return of far-left Democrats who were mad Biden did not become a full-blown communist during his first two years. They never intended to vote Republican, so circling the wagons was inevitable. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Biden’s approval has seen an organic or real increase. It’s quite the opposite.
It won’t be “different” this year. Because Biden’s approval rating, which is garbage, is not complete garbage, Democrats won’t be able to ignore the historical trends to shock the world and keep the House of Representatives. We’ve now reached the most stupid part of the election cycle where partisans believe they are special. Klain, Rosenberg, and all the rest, I have some good news. You’re not special and November will not be kind to you.
