Henninger: No matter the WH spin, Biden’s economy is a ‘train wreck’

President Joe Biden used his recent trip to Asia as a platform from which he attempted something of a shift in messaging when it comes to the current state of the economy, and in the estimation of Daniel Henninger of the Wall Street Journal, the situation at hand is nothing short of a “train wreck.”

In an op-ed published on Wednesday, Henninger began by cataloging some of the more depressing elements of Memorial Day weekend, 2022, namely the fact that everyday Americans are finding it increasingly more difficult to afford their holiday picnic or to fill up their gas tanks, not to mention looming concerns of recession.

Those are all concerns, Henninger writes, Biden has recently started chalking up not so much to the “Putin Price Hike” explanation people like former White House press secretary Jen Psaki and Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm previously tried to foist upon the citizenry, but something rather more vast.

Speaking in Tokyo, Biden instead declared, “When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels.”

In Henninger’s estimation, Biden’s statement was not so much an exercise in verbal gymnastics designed to obscure the truth, but rather a definition of “how Mr. Biden and the Democratic Party want American workers to live in to the far future.”

What Biden intends when he speaks to his desire for an economy with more “stable and resilient” growth, the piece explains, is actually to describe the dual goals of using “taxes and government-guided capital investments to compensate for the widening spread between the incomes of knowledge-economy workers and everyone else” and also to establish a “non-fossil-fuel economy.”

Luckily, says Henninger, the “grand progressive experiment” embodied by Biden’s failed Build Back Better agenda was blocked – barely – by Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV), and given current trends, Republicans will sweep the midterm contests, but that is not to say that the GOP has any room for complacency.

After Biden’s “transition” talk, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) blasted the president’s characterization, noting, “He’s in Tokyo celebrating, saying, ‘it’s an incredible transition.’ Incredible for you! You fly a damn 747 where the taxpayers pay for your jet fuel. What Joe Biden is saying is, if you at home, if you drive a pick up truck, ‘to hell with you; you can’t drive your pickup truck. If you have a Suburban, you’ve got to get rid of that. We’re all getting Toyota Priuses.’”

In Henninger’s words, Biden’s plummeting approval and Americans’ deepening economic woes are evidence that his “post-pandemic economy is a train wreck” and that [t]he political gods, in their unfathomable wisdom, have handed Republicans a once-in-a-generation chance to help voters understand how to build a future from this ruin,” but whether they can effectively seize that opportunity, only time will tell.

  6. The libs always put the cart before the horse. They want green vehicles without the necessary equipment to recharge them. To boot China has the stuff for 5he batteries. Imagine that

  7. Biden is destroying this country and if he wants to work with and deal with those other countries, like China, then he and his druggie son can move there. We don’t need them here destroying our country. We need someone like President Trump who truly cares about our country and our people. Anyone who doesn’t care about the country can MOVE OUT.

  8. Please resign Mr. Biden, and take Kamala with you. You both have been a worldwide embarrassment. We need to heal and put your administration behind us.

  10. It is quite evident that the people that the 20 million idiots that voted this administration in are getting exactly what they wanted come November the 75 million who voted legitimately for the right President (Trump) will get what we want. Lock those idiots up take back our country and have them stand up to TREASON charges.

  11. Biden is not the only problem, the whole democratic party is the problem, they are the ones telling him what to do. like he says “I get into trouble if I answer your question”. I hope the people that are dem’s start to see the truth about what they are trying to do to the American people. More gov. to many chiefs now.

  12. It is definitely time for every American citizen to rise up and demand that the whole Biden administration including Kamala Harris, Nancy Pelosi,Liz Cheney, Chuck Schumer Nadler SCHIFF,Dr Fauci, MITCH MCCONNELL along with everyone else in WASHINGTON D.C. . DRAIN THE SWAMP NOW BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!!!WE Must TAKE OUR COUNTRY BACK NOW!!!WAKE UP AMERICA JOE AND HUNTER ARE COMMITTING TREASON AND OTHER CRIMES AND CORRUPTION AGAINST THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!! KAMALA is in the thick of it also along with Nancy Pelosi!!!

  13. Most incompetent person ever to occupy the white house and YET Americans take NO steps to remove this crooked person and esp the “demo-dogs” continue to look the other way. Is it any wonder why other counties laugh and mock the great USA. How sad how disgusting.

  14. Or We the people will be FORCED to Rise in Mass EMPOWERED under the CONSTITUTION to remove a corrupt TYRANICAL Treasonous and out of CONTROL GOVERNMENT by any and all MEANS neccessary and to replace it

    That’s not Insurection, that’s our God given CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT…. but, what else would a bunch of Public Servants who have gone CRIMINALLY and TREASONOUSLY ROGUE COMPROMISED and CAPTURED COMMUNIST GLOBALIST NEW WORLD ORDER LUCIFERIAN PHEDOPHILE NAZIS WANNABEE HITLERESQUE DICTATORS SAY!

  15. Biden is executing the obama agenda that started before 2008 ! He set out to bring our country down, but Trump stopped it temporarily by winning the 2016 election. The demonrats tried every trick in the book to bring him down, but he persevered, much to their dismay, so Obama rigged 2020, with suckerberg’s help to buy off the election and install the idiot in chief we have now. Make NO mistake, this is obama’s Third term, HE is running the show through his stooge Biden. Get Obama out first, then Biden, Harris, Piglosi, Schumer and all the rest!!

  18. OBRIBEM needs to “transition” THE HELL OUT OF THE WHITE HOUSE AND AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    HEY BRANDON, HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE THE ONLY PRESIDENT IN THE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES TO BE LOOKING DOWN THE BARREL OF BEING AN IMPEACHED, TWO YEAR LAME DUCK?????????
    You MORON, entering into an agreement with the illegitimate KENYAN to let him have his third term in exchange for getting you elected, is probably not your finest moment!!!!!!!
    LET’S GO BRANDON, YOU MORON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. All these Democrats are living in their own realities! They lie and steal and cheat in everything they do! They all should be jailed!! And that includes Obama! And the current fake president!! And that drunk ass Pelosi!! Old ass hag! Why aren’t the Republicans charging them all with Treason for trying to over step in destroying our Country!! Death to them all!!

  20. Patty, I agree with what you have written but I wonder how you managed to post it. Every time I try to post my opinion, the MODERATORS kick it out. I’m glad that all of you got to express yourselves.

  21. I can’t wait for Nov.&the Republicans start the impeachment process for Biden. Or is it just talk I will be watching .

  22. Biden is not the only pitiful President with sorry politics ever in America, especially the way things are now, which is not good for any of us. Don’t get me wrong, I think Biden is the biggest idiot yet & a complete joke. This sorry down slide started with Clintons who implemented this BS way of life years ago. Then we had the Obamas with there sorry policies dividing the country even more. Now America stands on the brink of disaster with our enemies circling like sharks. The President, all of his his appointees in government, the Supreme Court, VP, the House, the Senate democrats are all weak & the “World” knows it. We can not stand by idle to watch our constitutional rights go up in flames, our children, their childrens lives & futures depend on it. Too many Americans have given their lives in blood stained battle fields since Americas conception to give it all away now. I have a question for all Americans to answer. Who were the only two presidents in American history assassinated & the two worst presidents in American history ? Answer: All four were/are democrats, two plus two does equal four. In God We Trust & May God Always Bless America !!!!

  23. Palocy and Hairis are even worse!
    The three of them have lead our Contry in the deepest hole worse than the GREAT DEPRESSION!!!!!!!!!!!
