“For as long as it takes” was the talking point chanted by Joe Biden to the press who followed him all the way to Madrid, Spain, to cover the NATO Summit. Ignoring Peter Doocy of Fox News, Biden referred to his cheat sheet and pathetically explained, “I’m supposed to go down the list here.” The first name on Biden’s list was an Associated Press reporter, who asked Biden about the recent pledge by the democratic G7 leaders to support Ukraine “for as long as it takes.” The AP reporter asked, “I’m wondering if you would explain what that means to the American people, ‘for as long as it takes’?”
Biden simply repeated back, “We are going to support Ukraine as long as it takes. We are going to stick with Ukraine as long as it takes to make sure that they are not defeated by Russia.”
Next on Biden’s list was a reporter from the Democrat-friendly New York Times, who asked Biden how his plan to cap Russian exports would affect the high price of gasoline in the United States. “Are you confident that that cap would bring down prices for American drivers?” he asked.
Apparently not understanding the question, Biden responded, “How long is it fair to expect American drivers to pay a premium because of this war?”
Given Biden’s inability to comprehend the question, the reporter explained, “The war has pushed prices up. How long is it fair to expect American drivers to pay that premium for this war?”
“As long as it takes,” Biden chanted again like a trained parrot, “so Russia cannot defeat Ukraine. This is a critical position for the world.” President Biden may have his slogan well-rehearsed, but he cannot make the American people get on board with such a ludicrous line of thinking. How can he be so doggedly committed to a foreign war, while ignoring the very real threats to ordinary Americans right here at home? We the People are not willing to suffer “as long as it takes” the liberal world order to shore up their power. Until Biden figures that out, his approval ratings will keep going as low as it takes to wake him up.
