Biden's White House communications strategy driving republicans insane!

As of the morning of April 13, the presidential statement trackers at factba.se report that Biden has spoken 2,288,361 words since being sworn in. Most of those have come in the form of prepared remarks during pre-arranged appearances, after which he has taken precious few questions. And even adding in his single East Room press conference and a television town hall held just a month into his term, the man who once famously called himself a “gaffe machine” has managed to spend his first 83 days in office remarkably gaffe-free, with perhaps his most newsworthy public statement of late being the ESPN interview in which he said he would support Major League Baseball if the decision was made to shift the national pastime’s all-star game away from Atlanta due to Georgia’s recently enacted restrictions on voting. 

For Republicans looking to capitalize on a major misstatement or slip-up, Biden’s less-is-more strategy has meant that the pickings have been slim. 

“It’s a nightmare,” said one House Republican campaign operative when asked about his party’s efforts to render Biden — and therefore his agenda — unpalatable to the majority of Americans. 

For the most part, Republicans have responded to Biden’s nascent administration and the accompanying Democratic control of Congress by reverting to their Obama-era playbook. That means denying the administration support for any of its major legislative initiatives — just as they did with the 2009 American Reinvestment and Recovery Act and the legislation that followed it.

1. Joe is very smart about dealing with Republicans

He learned a lot from his tenure as VP

You can welcome their input but if all they want to do is obstruct, tell them to F off we don’t have time for your nonsense.
