2020 had 37 million, genius. I guess 27 million is "1/2" of 37 million.

Yes Joe is boring. And most of us think that is just fine after the last 4 years. I don't need or want the President to entertain me or blow up Twitter. I didn't watch it live last night either. I'm glad you can wrap yourself in TV ratings like a security blanket.
So precious. Howie doesn’t care about TV ratings - that’s why he made a post minutes before this one telling us all the ratings were low because it was after DST. LOL.
This is also much later than most years. SOTU is usually in February. TV ratings drop after DST.

Trump’s first 100 day speech had 48 million, genius. Not the lowest SOTU speech.

Half the reason Trump wasn’t boring is b/c he said what he meant. Biden just says what they tell him to say.

Next time you make an observation by posting a Tweet, do I get to say you’re “wrapping yourself” in it?

In what way are things going to shit?
Illegal immigration and drug smuggling are soaring.

Biden is following the science and is destroying small business by signaling to blue governors to keep mask and limited re-opening mandates even for those people that have been fully vaccinated.

He’s proposing unprecedented levels of spending that increase the size of government and creates a dependency state. And he’s discouraging some people going back to work by paying them more to stay home, creating a employee shortage.

Crime is soaring in liberal cities, minorities are dying, and he’s ignoring it while focusing on a couple apparently justified police shootings of young black men to further the narrative that police are systematically racist.

Gas prices are going up fast b/c we’re kneecapping ourselves by reducing one of our most abundant resources.

I could go on, but I have plans for the rest of the morning.

@Spoofin, I don’t have a dog in this hunt, and completely agree that the point is meaningless, but I am curious why you are blasting one guy and not the other. KFC quite obviously actually “cares” about the ratings. I could also point out that I can explain lots of things I don’t care about. Your involvement here seems oddly one-sided and curious in general.

I'd be interested to see evidence of Biden destroying small business.

Good to see gas prices going up is bad again. And god forbid that prices return to levels they were at 20 years ago as the economy heats up. I'd also be interested to hear which of Biden's policies is kneecapping us.



You can't say things are going to shit because he's proposing stuff. You actually hurt your argument that things are going to shit because his policies aren't even enacted.

What do you think Biden should do about crime in cities? Ban guns?

Howie is the one that claimed he didn't care and followed it up with justifying them with DST. The typical nonsense hypocrisy that Howie spews daily. I enjoy pointing out what a fraud Howie is.

Gas prices are going up b/c of policies enacted by Executive Order. How many EOs has Biden signed in his first 100 days? Here’s some reading for you:

Encouraging pandemic policies that favor large corporations while ignoring small business through lockdowns and business mandates. Encouraging minimum wage policies that are a hardship on small business. Paying employees more to stay at home than to return to work hurts small business far more than large corps. Discouraging schools from being open while GOP governors have successfully operated in-person learning in schools since last fall.

Biden completely abandoned Trump Administration policies at the border that has invited massive illegal immigrant migration, especially those with children. And which has left the Border Patrol babysitting instead of the responsibility of interdiction of drugs and drug traffickers.

Stopping what the last administration had successfully implemented is an action.

Not to mention that he is further dividing the country along racial lines by openly stating that American is a systemically racist country.

Most outrageous is that Joe and Company are trying to take credit for Operation Warp Speed, which included the distribution and administering of vaccines. Did anyone think that day 1 of anything will be as effective and efficient as day 100? If so, you may want to ask yourself about how fast a start Obamacare got off to when it started its sign up.

Yes, he hasn’t enacted much of the stuff he wants to. That just means it’s going to get worse.

Having just gotten my first COVID shot yesterday, I will pipe in. There was no viable distribution plan prior to January 20, 2021. You can make meds for everyone in the country but it don't mean squat if they are going to sit in a warehouse somewhere.

The previous administration couldn't figure out how to get them into the communities and into peoples' arms. The new guy had a plan from day one and has been successful in achieving the mission in record time. Because of the D next to his name, you will blindingly not acknowledge that.

Now if we could get the anti-vaxers to get off their asses and get the damn shots themselves, we might have a fighting chance of staving off the variants before they undo the progress and force us to go through this whole cycle again. Of course, that IS the goal of many of them, isn't it? These fools are willing to watch grandma die to make their political point. Sick people.

Congrats on your shot. I got mine about a month ago. I also agree that we need to get more people on board with taking it. Your middle paragraph (copied above) is just nonsense tho - unless you can point to what this "plan" was. When vaccines were initially being shipped, most States (prime example is MN) had no plan/clue how to distribute them. Some did (WV for example) and moved along well from the start. What happened is that with more times States eventually figured it out (prime example is MN). Some are still better at it than others. There was never a "national plan" on how to distribute the vaccine. Maybe you think there should have been, fine, but I would disagree.

Thanks. It was the most efficient process that I have ever been part of. I'm glad that you got your shot. What one did you get? I got Pfizer... no side effects so far.

You've made my point to a large degree. It is not up to me as an individual citizen to have to search for a plan from my president. A national response to a vaccination requires a clear national plan or it is doomed to failure. This should not have been left to the states to figure out... especially after the roll your own response to the pandemic itself where some states took it seriously and others didn't. Based on how things went in 2020, I was expecting chaos during the vaccination phase. I was pleasantly surprised to see a clear public message about a plan with goals and process.

I got J&J - one and done and not being a middle-aged Woman there was no reason to worry. No side effects at all - lucky that way. Yes, I agree --- I told many how impressed I was with the coordinated process at the convention center when I got my shot. Very well organized. We will just have to agree to disagree on where the responsibility lies on who is in-charge of in-state distribution. The US has done well.

No they are going up because a ton of production was taken offline last year, remember when prices went negative? Now people are driving a lot more and turning that production on is not like turning your sink on.

To say otherwise is just stupid because nothing Biden has done has changed our Oil infrastructure in any way from 2019 and I am 100% sure we are still using less oil than 2019.

That is a crock of crap.

“no viable distribution plan...”?

Click on the links before and tell me what Biden did that isn’t in this plan. BTW, States share some responsibility in the vaccination plan:

This is so typical.

- Economy continues to go up after Trump takes office: Obama had nothing to do with that
- Rate of vaccinations continues to go up after Trump leaves office: Biden had nothing to do with that
- Gas prices continue to rise after Trump leaves office: Trump had nothing to do with that.

I'll also just reiterate: gas prices are going up because the economy is improving. Any pundit in the world would tell you that it's a good sign, and you guys are being deliberately obtuse to pretend you don't know that.

Wow, you got all that from my screen shot? LOL. I was making a joke. Not sure I have said any of those things you have listed above, but I'm sure I said something you will consider "close enough". dttc

You did hear that we’re coming out of a pandemic, right? What goes down, bounces back...always. Unless you lefties get your wishes.

The rate of vaccinations continue to go up...duh. You ignored my point about the launch of Obamacare. Did the implementation of Obamacare’s website get better after a couple months of fuck ups? Yeah, it did.

Once the significant supply of vaccine was readied, LTC facilities and healthcare workers began getting their vaccinations without significant issues. Some states, like New York, made the parameters of who could and couldn’t get the vaccine to difficult to understand and wasted some vaccine. That wasn’t Trump’s fault.

Energy prices in general will continue to rise b/c that’s the Democrat plan. Slow our most significant energy resources and switch to Green energy.

You also didn’t address the immigration issues, drug trafficking, the racial divisiveness instigated by Biden, and the favoring of large corporations over small business when it comes to lockdowns and mandates.

Yep... "no viable distribution plan." The previous administration focused on delivering millions of vaccine doses to loading docks. States and localities were expected to take over from there with little support, guidance, or funding.

The Biden administration, by contrast, helped the states organize their vaccination efforts and get doses the 'last mile' into the hands of vaccinators. This was yet again another time where we have to be one nation with a concerted standard effort.

Under the previous administration, the amount of vaccine a given state received fluctuated wildly with no explanation. States struggled with planning for how to administer fluctuating amounts of vaccine. Officials apparently requested the same amount of vaccine each week and had no idea why there was so much weekly variation in number of vaccines received both over and under their request.

The preious administration did not offer a cohesive public information campaign to drive home the fact that demand for vaccines would vastly exceed supply for months. They promised a federal education campaign in January but I never saw it. The Biden administration began a public relations campaign on day one to better understand the problems and promote solutions to ramp up vaccination programs nationwide.

As to the overall handling of the pandemic by 45, here are some of my favorite quotes....

Jan. 22, 2020: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China. It’s going to be just fine.”

Jan. 24, 2020: “China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!”

Feb. 10, 2020: “Looks like by April, you know in theory when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away.”

Feb. 24, 2020: “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA… the Stock Market starting to look very good to me!”

Feb. 26, 2020: “The 15 (cases in the US) within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.”

Feb. 27, 2020: “It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”

March 4, 2020: “If we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work — some of them go to work, but they get better.”

March 6, 2020: “I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it… Every one of these doctors said, ‘How do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.”

March 8, 2020: “We have a perfectly coordinated and fine-tuned plan at the White House for our attack on CoronaVirus.”

March 9, 2020: During a news conference, White House officials said the U.S. will have tested one million people that week and thereafter would complete 4 million tests per week. By the end of the week, the CDC had only completed a paltry 4,000 tests.

March 10, 2020: “Just stay calm. It will go away.”

March 13, 2020: “I don’t take responsibility at all.”

March 13, 2020: The Atlantic reports that less than 14,000 tests have been done in the ten weeks since the Administration had first been notified of the virus, though Mike Pence had promised the week prior that 1.5 million tests would be available by this time.

March 14, 2020: “I’d rate it a ten,” [Trump’s rating of his coronavirus response]

March 15, 2020: “This is a very contagious virus. It’s incredible. But it’s something that we have tremendous control over.”

March 24, 2020:“I'm also hopeful to have Americans working again by that Easter - that beautiful Easter day.”

March 30, 2020: "Stay calm, it will go away. You know it -- you know it is going away, and it will go away, and we're going to have a great victory."

April 3, 2020: “I’m feeling good. I just don’t want to be doing -- somehow sitting in the Oval Office behind that beautiful resolute desk, the great resolute desk, I think wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens, I don’t know, somehow I don’t see it for myself. I just don’t. Maybe I’ll change my mind.”

April 7, 2020: "So, you know, things are happening. It's a -- it's -- I haven't seen bad. I've not seen bad."

April 7, 2020: "You are not going to die from this pill...I really think it's a great thing to try." [Trump promoting Hydroxychloroquine, not FDA approved to treat coronavirus]

April 7, 2020: “That was a flu. OK. So you could say that I said it was a flu, or you could say the flu is nothing to -- sneeze at," [Regarding Spanish Flu]

April 22, 2020: “If [coronavirus] comes back though, it won’t be coming back in the form that it was, it will be coming back in smaller doses that we can contain….it’s also possible it doesn’t come back at all.”

April 23, 2020: "I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning? As you see, it gets in the lungs, it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that."

April 23, 2020: “So, supposing we hit the body with a tremendous, whether its ultraviolet or just very powerful light, and I think you said, that hasn't been checked but you're gonna test it. And then I said, supposing it brought the light inside the body, which you can either do either through the skin or some other way…”

April 29, 2020: “It’s gonna go away, this is going to go away.”

May 15, 2020: “Vaccine or no vaccine, we’re back. And we’re starting the process. In many cases, they don’t have vaccines and a virus or a flu comes and you fight through it.

June 15, 2020: “At some point this stuff goes away and it’s going away.”

June 18, 2020: “And it is dying out. The numbers are starting to get very good.”

July 1, 2020: “I think we’re going to be very good with the coronavirus.” “I think that, at some point, that’s going to sort of disappear, I hope.”

Aug. 3, 2020:“Right now I think it’s under control.”

Aug. 22, 2020: “Many doctors and studies disagree with this!” (Donald Trump in a quote tweet of a Twitter moment stating that the FDA is revoking hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for COVID-19 treatment, as they are “unlikely to be effective”)

Sept. 10, 2020: “I really do believe that we are rounding the corner. The vaccines are right there”

Sept. 10, 2020: “This is nobody's fault but China.”

Sept. 21, 2020: "We're rounding the corner," "With or without a vaccine. They hate when I say that but that's the way it is. ... We've done a phenomenal job. Not just a good job, a phenomenal job. Other than public relations, but that's because I have fake news. On public relations, I give myself a D. On the job itself, we take an A+."

Sept. 28, 2020: "And I say, and I’ll say it all the time: We’re rounding the corner. And, very importantly, vaccines are coming, but we’re rounding the corner regardless. But vaccines are coming, and they’re coming fast. "

Oct. 5, 2020: “Don’t be afraid of Covid.”

Oct. 10, 2020:"But it’s going to disappear; it is disappearing."

Oct. 12, 2020: “I went through it. Now, they say I'm immune. I can feel—I feel so powerful.”

Oct. 12, 2020: “When this first came out, if we didn't do a good job, they predicted 2.2 million people would die, we're 210,000. We shouldn't be at, one, it's China's fault. They allowed this to happen.”

Oct. 22, 2020: "We are rounding the turn (on coronavirus). We are rounding the corner.”

Oct. 27, 2020: "So they brought it down now, immunity, from life to four months. And you know now with them, you can’t watch anything else. You turn on… COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID. Well, we have a spike in cases. You ever notice, they don’t use the word death. They use the word cases, cases. Like, “Barron Trump is a case.” He has sniffles. He was sniffling. One Kleenex, that’s all he needed. One, and he was better. But he’s a case"

Dec. 22, 2020: “Distribution of both vaccines is going very smoothly. Amazing how many people are being vaccinated, record numbers. Our Country, and indeed the World, will soon see the great miracle of what the Trump Administration has accomplished. They said it couldn’t be done!!!”

Dec. 30, 2020: As recently as mid-December, the Trump administration touted an ambitious goal: 20 million COVID-19 vaccinations by the year’s end. A CDC tracker shows only about 2 million people have been vaccinated so far.

January 12: HHS Secretary Alex Azar announced that the federal government would begin releasing vaccine doses that had been held in reserve for second shots, but no such reserve existed. His false announcement raised false hopes among state and local officials.

January 14: The Trump administration promised to have 20 million people given their first shot by the end of 2020. Two weeks later, they have administered just over 11 million.

Yep... "no viable distribution plan." The previous administration focused on delivering millions of vaccine doses to loading docks. States and localities were expected to take over from there with little support, guidance, or funding.

The Biden administration, by contrast, helped the states organize their vaccination efforts and get doses the 'last mile' into the hands of vaccinators. This was yet again another time where we have to be one nation with a concerted standard effort.

Under the previous administration, the amount of vaccine a given state received fluctuated wildly with no explanation. States struggled with planning for how to administer fluctuating amounts of vaccine. Officials apparently requested the same amount of vaccine each week and had no idea why there was so much weekly variation in number of vaccines received both over and under their request.

The preious administration did not offer a cohesive public information campaign to drive home the fact that demand for vaccines would vastly exceed supply for months. They promised a federal education campaign in January but I never saw it. The Biden administration began a public relations campaign on day one to better understand the problems and promote solutions to ramp up vaccination programs nationwide.

As to the overall handling of the pandemic by 45, here are some of my favorite quotes....

Jan. 22, 2020: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China. It’s going to be just fine.”

Jan. 24, 2020: “China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!”

Feb. 10, 2020: “Looks like by April, you know in theory when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away.”

Feb. 24, 2020: “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA… the Stock Market starting to look very good to me!”

Feb. 26, 2020: “The 15 (cases in the US) within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero.”

Feb. 27, 2020: “It’s going to disappear. One day, it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.”

March 4, 2020: “If we have thousands or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around and even going to work — some of them go to work, but they get better.”

March 6, 2020: “I like this stuff. I really get it. People are surprised that I understand it… Every one of these doctors said, ‘How do you know so much about this?’ Maybe I have a natural ability. Maybe I should have done that instead of running for president.”

March 8, 2020: “We have a perfectly coordinated and fine-tuned plan at the White House for our attack on CoronaVirus.”

March 9, 2020: During a news conference, White House officials said the U.S. will have tested one million people that week and thereafter would complete 4 million tests per week. By the end of the week, the CDC had only completed a paltry 4,000 tests.

March 10, 2020: “Just stay calm. It will go away.”

March 13, 2020: “I don’t take responsibility at all.”

March 13, 2020: The Atlantic reports that less than 14,000 tests have been done in the ten weeks since the Administration had first been notified of the virus, though Mike Pence had promised the week prior that 1.5 million tests would be available by this time.

March 14, 2020: “I’d rate it a ten,” [Trump’s rating of his coronavirus response]

March 15, 2020: “This is a very contagious virus. It’s incredible. But it’s something that we have tremendous control over.”

March 24, 2020:“I'm also hopeful to have Americans working again by that Easter - that beautiful Easter day.”

March 30, 2020: "Stay calm, it will go away. You know it -- you know it is going away, and it will go away, and we're going to have a great victory."

April 3, 2020: “I’m feeling good. I just don’t want to be doing -- somehow sitting in the Oval Office behind that beautiful resolute desk, the great resolute desk, I think wearing a face mask as I greet presidents, prime ministers, dictators, kings, queens, I don’t know, somehow I don’t see it for myself. I just don’t. Maybe I’ll change my mind.”

April 7, 2020: "So, you know, things are happening. It's a -- it's -- I haven't seen bad. I've not seen bad."

April 7, 2020: "You are not going to die from this pill...I really think it's a great thing to try." [Trump promoting Hydroxychloroquine, not FDA approved to treat coronavirus]

April 7, 2020: “That was a flu. OK. So you could say that I said it was a flu, or you could say the flu is nothing to -- sneeze at," [Regarding Spanish Flu]

April 22, 2020: “If [coronavirus] comes back though, it won’t be coming back in the form that it was, it will be coming back in smaller doses that we can contain….it’s also possible it doesn’t come back at all.”

April 23, 2020: "I see the disinfectant that knocks it out in a minute, one minute. And is there a way we can do something like that by injection inside or almost a cleaning? As you see, it gets in the lungs, it does a tremendous number on the lungs, so it would be interesting to check that."

April 23, 2020: “So, supposing we hit the body with a tremendous, whether its ultraviolet or just very powerful light, and I think you said, that hasn't been checked but you're gonna test it. And then I said, supposing it brought the light inside the body, which you can either do either through the skin or some other way…”

April 29, 2020: “It’s gonna go away, this is going to go away.”

May 15, 2020: “Vaccine or no vaccine, we’re back. And we’re starting the process. In many cases, they don’t have vaccines and a virus or a flu comes and you fight through it.

June 15, 2020: “At some point this stuff goes away and it’s going away.”

June 18, 2020: “And it is dying out. The numbers are starting to get very good.”

July 1, 2020: “I think we’re going to be very good with the coronavirus.” “I think that, at some point, that’s going to sort of disappear, I hope.”

Aug. 3, 2020:“Right now I think it’s under control.”

Aug. 22, 2020: “Many doctors and studies disagree with this!” (Donald Trump in a quote tweet of a Twitter moment stating that the FDA is revoking hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for COVID-19 treatment, as they are “unlikely to be effective”)

Sept. 10, 2020: “I really do believe that we are rounding the corner. The vaccines are right there”

Sept. 10, 2020: “This is nobody's fault but China.”

Sept. 21, 2020: "We're rounding the corner," "With or without a vaccine. They hate when I say that but that's the way it is. ... We've done a phenomenal job. Not just a good job, a phenomenal job. Other than public relations, but that's because I have fake news. On public relations, I give myself a D. On the job itself, we take an A+."

Sept. 28, 2020: "And I say, and I’ll say it all the time: We’re rounding the corner. And, very importantly, vaccines are coming, but we’re rounding the corner regardless. But vaccines are coming, and they’re coming fast. "

Oct. 5, 2020: “Don’t be afraid of Covid.”

Oct. 10, 2020:"But it’s going to disappear; it is disappearing."

Oct. 12, 2020: “I went through it. Now, they say I'm immune. I can feel—I feel so powerful.”

Oct. 12, 2020: “When this first came out, if we didn't do a good job, they predicted 2.2 million people would die, we're 210,000. We shouldn't be at, one, it's China's fault. They allowed this to happen.”

Oct. 22, 2020: "We are rounding the turn (on coronavirus). We are rounding the corner.”

Oct. 27, 2020: "So they brought it down now, immunity, from life to four months. And you know now with them, you can’t watch anything else. You turn on… COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID, COVID. Well, we have a spike in cases. You ever notice, they don’t use the word death. They use the word cases, cases. Like, “Barron Trump is a case.” He has sniffles. He was sniffling. One Kleenex, that’s all he needed. One, and he was better. But he’s a case"

Says YOU! You saying it doesn’t make it true. You providing quotes from prior to the Emergency Authorization or saying they “promised” without actually attaching a quote that says that doesn’t make it true.

You didn’t use the documents that I provided to disprove the actual distribution plan and specifically say just how Biden changed ANYTHING.

Read those documents and then provide ACTUAL PROOF that they didn’t do something in those documents.

BTW, states had some responsibility in distribution and the Trump Administration kept the governors well informed with regular meetings. That is a state’s responsibility too and some of them got off to a bad start.

A long post of meaningless words doesn’t provide evidence of your narrative. Provide documents that prove that of the Biden Administration’s plan and show how it differs from Trump’s?

You can’t b/c it’s a lie from the Biden Administration that you bought.

2020 had 37 million, genius. I guess 27 million is "1/2" of 37 million.

Yes Joe is boring. And most of us think that is just fine after the last 4 years. I don't need or want the President to entertain me or blow up Twitter. I didn't watch it live last night either. I'm glad you can wrap yourself in TV ratings like a security blanket.
If I want excitement I'll go to the basketball board for faux Texas A & M transfer updates.
