To cap off President Joe Biden’s no good, very bad, horrible week of political hell, the Biden admin appears to be desperate enough to reach back in an attempt to revive old issues in order to score a much-needed victory with the radicals that make up a very small portion of his base.
According to Fox News, the way Biden will try to accomplish that is by reportedly signing executive orders with regard to “police reform,” the very topic that pundits from both sides of the aisle noted is what wrecked Democratic candidates in the November 2021 elections, and will likely contribute to the downfall of Democratic candidates across the country in the upcoming midterm elections.
NBC News noted that the president could sign the reform orders to kick off the start of Black History Month in February, in what is clearly an attempt to pander to the Black voting bloc, which the president has continued to lose support from during his first year in office.
It could also be a desperate move to come up with a perceived win ahead of the president’s scheduled State of the Union address in March.
“The focus on police reforms is part of what appears to be a last-ditch effort by the Biden administration to take action on some of the president’s signature initiatives in the run-up to his State of the Union Address on March 1,” NBC News’ report added.
It’s not immediately clear what, exactly, Biden will sign in the way of police reform, given that his Justice Department took various law enforcement reform actions last year.
As NBC also noted, Biden’s support from Black voters, which he had in the 2020 election, is now at an all-time low.
In April, according to a Quinnipiac poll, Biden enjoyed a 78% approval rating from Black voters. Now, however, that number has dropped to 57%, and will likely continue to plummet.
Only time will tell what cards are still up Biden’s sleeve, but short of something unprecedented, this 79-year-old cognitively-challenged president will continue cementing a disastrous and humiliating legacy.
