I don’t really understand why Joe Biden’s favorability ratings are so low. I think he has been doing a good job as president. In fact, I’ve been watching him since he was in the Senate.
Yes, there are a few things he’s done that I disagreed with. For example, voting for the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996. But I was more upset that President Bill Clinton signed it! At least Biden had the excuse at the time of being a life-long Catholic. Even so, he evolved over time into a strong promoter and defender of same-sex marriage. I’m also a bit unhappy about his decision to build 20 miles of wall on the southern border, but I know why he did it.
However, I can think of lots of things Biden has done right. He’s honest, he has been able to work with the progressive Democrats (and get quite a few of their bills passed), and even has (amazingly) been able to work with a few (reasonable) Republicans.
Why do we wallow in negative news all the time? I keep seeing stories about Biden’s age, but Donald Trump is only 3 years younger than Biden, and is much less healthy. And I don’t have to tell you all the other problems that Trump has.
