Biden's First Year Challenges


THE STATE OF THE UNION IS STRONG
President Joe Biden has clearly articulated the obstacles and challenges that he had to deal with in his first year in office. I cannot remember in my lifetime a President who in his first term faced as many challenges as he did: • An attack on the legitimacy of his election victory. • An insurrection and attempted coup before his Inauguration. • A massive pandemic and the previous administration’s inadequate planning and a lack of an infrastructure to support and control the pandemic. • A consistent right-wing campaign of misinformation on social media platforms against vaccines and masks. • The withdrawal from Afghanistan and intense criticism of the method of the evacuation and the results. • Severe supply chain issues due to the pandemic, availability of resources and poor supply chain management and planning. • High inflation due to pent up demand and consumer over-indulgence on products rather than services, and corporate greed. • Uniform Republican opposition, with an assist from Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. • Fierce partisan disputes over voting rights, the filibuster, and the Supreme Court. • Ukraine invasion by Russia. That is quite a list. Few presidents would still be standing in the face of such headwinds. But as Biden finishes his first year, he has successfully resurrected NATO and re-established trust in U.S. leadership during the biggest crisis since WWII. That is saying something—despite whatever the pundits say. The Washington County Democrats feel that President Biden is the right man at the right time to begin to “restore the soul of America”.
