What would you grade President Biden so far?

I give him a very solid A. Maybe the messaging could be better, but he’s done great on everything from the war in Ukraine to COVID to helping lower income families. A few Democrats and the Repukes have prevented more help to people. I think he’s calming and reassuring for these times. Not many things I take issue with.

They never tout the many good things and dwell on complaints by both Repukes and Democrats. Negative city. Even MSNBC has some guilt.

I think President Biden has done a marvelous job cleaning up trump's mess so far. I am also happy with him his initiatives to move us forward, but especially in turning back the climate horrors of the trump years.

Repuke presidents have been leaving mind-bending piles of shit behind for incoming democrats to clean up, for decades now.
Biden was handed a nation in catastrophe…economic disaster, hundreds of thousands dead, foreign policy in shreds, venal stupidity everywhere.

And he’s been cleaning it up. Piece by piece, room by room. With the M$M on his back the whole goddamn way.

and a B- on domestic policy where covid relief money was concerned.

A better job was needed on getting rent to landlords to avoid evictions, and a poor job was done holding harmless those on unemployment in red states who had their unemployment cut short last summer when the money was already appropriated and in the pipeline.

I hear some Dems try to give Biden credits, but not nearly enough. When a Pub does the smallest little thing, ALL THE PUBS juump on the closest mike to sing their praises.

I think Dems never learned how to brag, nor did they learn how to fight! It seems all of us Dems become all shy and instead of bragging about our accomplishments, we get all red faced & put our head down & hope everyone will see the effect of our good deeds. In a similar vein, when there's a big argument in Congress, I guess we do our best, but we don't have any real scrappers. Now, I detest the Pub scrappers, but when there's a battle, I sure would like to see some on our side.

On political matters he gets a C because he is the leader of the Democratic Party and sadly the messaging falls on ignorant ears.
The opposition swells on the hate they spew.
Dems rely on intelligence and unfortunately most Americans graduated high school with a gentleman C.
I have yet to figure out how to message the good side of governing to overcome the propensity of complaints against it when it is so much easier to feel better by blaming someone else.
Biden is doing the right thing presenting the dignity of the office. It does not have the sway of Big Time Wrestling or NASCAR crashes. Ukraine is far away for most. Gasoline is close.
The opposition has a propaganda machine tuned into the mob that follows.
The smarts has to take a moonshot at that knowing you can't make someone read never mind interpret the inferences.
Because of that old Joe gets a B+.

..A+++ and an honorary Doctorate for Presidential prowess.

Biden hasn't been as successful as he had hoped but it's not because he isn't capable, competent or focused. He's had to struggle with the 'normal' problems Presidents face as well as the entire fucking GOP whose single objective is to defeat the Biden agenda.

Yeah, he gets an A+.
