In a stunning display of political theater, President Joe Biden stood at the White House and delivered a public plea for Congress to approve additional funding for aid to Ukraine. With all the urgency of a man trying to put out a fire with a squirt gun, Biden warned that failing to approve this aid would be a “stunning” and disastrous gift to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Joe Biden Begs 'Extreme Republicans' for Ukraine Funding
— Townhall.com (@townhallcom) December 6, 2023
Displaying his typical lack of self-awareness, Biden accused Republicans of endangering national security by not immediately approving the funding. He went as far as to suggest that American troops might have to fight Russian troops if Ukraine isn’t adequately armed against invasion. It’s a wonder he didn’t suggest sending in the cavalry and the village blacksmith while he was at it.
But let’s not forget about the elephant in the room – the border crisis. Despite his administration’s inability to address the chaos at the border, Biden had the audacity to claim that “real solutions at the border” are supported by his administration. Excuse me, Mr. President, but allowing millions of unvetted people to pour into the country sounds more like a national security threat than a solution.
And if that wasn’t enough, Biden had the nerve to say that “petty partisan angry politics can’t get in the way” of the responsibility as the leading nation in the world. Perhaps he should take a long hard look in the mirror before preaching about petty partisan politics, given his own track record of divisiveness and political maneuvering.
As if that weren’t bad enough, Biden continued to bemoan that “if we walk away now, it will only embolden other would-be aggressors.” One can’t help but wonder if he’s referring to himself, considering his administration’s track record with the Taliban, Russia, and Iran-backed proxies.
So, the question remains – will Congress cave to Biden’s theatrics and approve the additional funding? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure – the political circus in Washington is far from over.
