Joe Biden’s State of the Union on Tuesday night was not only a confused and chaotic rehash of his Build Back Better agenda, which is long dead, but it was also full of lies. While he talked a lot about Ukraine he didn’t have any positive actions to share. Kamala Harris was able to correct him. The speech was a “total disappointment,” Ukrainian Member of Parliament Oleksandra Ustinova said.
But while Biden spoke a lot about Ukraine and said a whole lot of nothing, he failed to address the things that he was supposed to address in the speech — the state of the nation — and the things that were uppermost in the minds of Americans like the crushing inflation and the rising gas prices. He couldn’t list achievements because virtually everything is a failure. He spoke about inflation, but showed he had no understanding of it, and his only answer for gas prices was not increasing U.S. production or cutting Russian oil — but pilfering from the Strategic Reserve.
Kamala Harris was delegated to a couple of the shows Wednesday to say what an inspiring message he’d delivered, but even she had trouble making the case. Maybe because even she doesn’t believe it.
She was on “CBS Mornings” with Gayle King. “The new CBS poll found 70 percent of Americans disapprove of the Administration’s handling of inflation. What do you say to those people who say that gas prices are just too high, I can’t get peanut butter, everything costs more? What are you going to do?” King demanded to know.

Harris did not have the answers. He basically stated that inflation occurs because things are more expensive. That is some amazing economic insight!
“Listen, people are struggling, especially working people in terms of the price of gas and food,” Harris agreed. “And the reasons include what we need to do to address what happened through the pandemic, in terms of supply chain issues, which was a reduction of the availability of goods, and so the prices went up. We also need to deal with one of the biggest issues – which is the cost of living. It’s too expensive for working families.”
Harris also admitted that people are struggling and that’s it’s too expensive to live, even as Joe Biden is trying to convince everyone what a wonderful economy he’s brought us, and it’s just that Americans don’t understand that yet. So, she’s cutting the legs out from under that Biden lie and acknowledging it’s as bad as the American people know that it is.
Harris was unable to resist the temptation to use another word when Harris was asked what her team plans to do regarding the energy question in the country and how they would cut oil and natural gas from Russia.

Harris responded: “As it pertains to what needs to be done domestically, as well as in terms general, we have, according to the president, reevaluated how we are doing things.” pic.twitter.com/7ZRn9cIFiu

Harris responds: “As it relates to what we need to do domestically, as well as what we need to do in terms of this issue generally, we have, as the president said, reevaluated what we’re doing in terms of the strategic oil reserve here in the United States, to make sure it will not have an impact or that we can mitigate the impact on the American consumer.”
It’s horse hockey, and it is not an option. Biden has released 30,000,000 barrels from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. We use approximately 18 million barrels of oil per day. How much does this take care? A day and a quarter of a need What are the options for those in desperate need if the war breaks out and the prices skyrocket? That may already be coming, as it’s already hitting the highest price since 2011 and may go up to five dollars a gallon.

Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, said on Monday that the average gas price in some U.S. cities will reach $5 a gallon “in the next couple of weeks.”
Because the Biden team has dealt away our independence, they’ve left us up a creek without a paddle — and they have no answers.
