Who’s up for a game of: How Smart Is Joe Biden?
Joe Biden is so smart that he knew the answer to this question: “How do you make sure you can have a successful presidency and position your party well for 2024 – even if there’s a good chance that you could lose the House and the Senate in the midterms?”
Just a few months ago I was wishing that tangible results from all the great legislation that was passed had gone into effect BEFORE the midterms, when it could have potentially influenced votes, instead of 2023. So it’s a good thing I wasn’t home when Joe Biden called for my advice, because he plays the long game.
Answer: Biden made sure that some of the most popular parts of his legislation would take effect in Jan 2023, right after the midterms.
Win or lose – even if you lose the House and the Senate – you are suddenly helping people in undeniable ways – helping them in tangible ways – with things that matter, like the cost of insulin. Right or wrong, accurate or not, the President gets the credit or the blame for what’s happening, so this was a very smart play.
