Even when it seems like Joe Biden can’t make things look any worse, he does.
Looking beyond the still-contested presidential election to actually being sworn into office, the former vice president took to a stage in Wilmington, Delaware, on Tuesday to warn his countrymen and women that they’ve nothing to look forward to in the foreseeable future when it comes to the coronavirus crisis.
This is pretty much exactly what Americans don’t need to hear as the new year of 2021 beckons. Some might remember way back when the coronavirus crisis was just a “flatten-the-curve” situation, with two weeks of shutdowns expected to make sure the coronavirus didn’t overwhelm the medical system.
Now, a man who’s at least pretending to the presidency is making speeches that raise the specter of nationwide lockdowns — exactly the kind that aren’t working so well now in California and other Democratic-run states.
Biden and his boot-lickers in the establishment media tried to play it off as a politician leveling with the public, but for conservative critics, it came across as something different entirely.
“One thing I promise you about my leadership during this crisis: I’m going to tell it to you straight. I’m going to tell you the truth. And here’s the simple truth: Our darkest days in the battle against COVID are ahead of us, not behind us,” Biden said, according to Fox News.
“As frustrating as it is to hear, it’s going to take patience, persistence and determination to beat this virus,” Biden said. “There will be no time to waste in taking the steps we need to turn this crisis around.”

Maybe it’s escaped the doddering Democrat’s notice, but the current White House resident, President Donald Trump, has already taken a considerable number of those steps we need to “turn this crisis around.”
It’s thanks in large part to Trump’s Operation Warp Speed — and over the skepticism of liberals — that not one but two vaccinations have received emergency use authorization for the coronavirus that’s plagued the world and global economies since apparently being unleashed by China in late 2019.
That’s a bona fide reason for at least some optimism in the dwindling days of December 2020, but acknowledging that might actually raise American expectations for the future. And above all else, Biden and his supporters don’t want to raise expectations.
Any prospective Biden presidency is going to have a tough enough time meeting the dismal ones that are in place now.
Even leaving aside the growing scandal surrounding Biden’s son Hunter and the mounting evidence that the former vice president himself is almost certainly corrupt, any honest appraisal would have to conclude that Biden simply doesn’t have a lot to offer that his country needs, or wants.
After all, this is a lifelong political hack whose career was probably best summed up by former Defense Secretary Robert Gates as having been ”wrong on nearly every major foreign policy and national security issue over the past four decades.”
This is a presidential prospect whose time on the campaign trail was ludicrously limited, ostensibly by fears of the coronavirus but much more likely by aides petrified that the gaffe machine that is Joe Biden would finally say something so over the top that even an establishment media devoted to ousting Trump from the White House wouldn’t be able to cover it up.
