New York Times: 'President Biden Has A Short Fuse And An Obsession With Details'

 

New York Times: Beneath Joe Biden’s Folksy Demeanor, a Short Fuse and an Obsession With Details  

As Mr. Biden settles into the office he has chased for more than three decades, aides say he demands hours of debate from scores of policy experts. 

WASHINGTON — The commander in chief was taking his time, as usual. 

It was late March, and President Biden was under increasing pressure to penalize President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia for election interference and the biggest cyberattack ever on American government and industry. “I have to do it relatively soon,” he said to Jake Sullivan, his national security adviser. 

Mr. Biden had already spent the first two months of his presidency debating how to respond to Mr. Putin, and despite his acknowledgment in March that he needed to act quickly, his deliberations were far from over. He convened another meeting in the Situation Room that stretched for two and a half hours, and called yet another session there a week later. 

“He has a kind of mantra: ‘You can never give me too much detail,’” Mr. Sullivan said. 

Quick decision-making is not Mr. Biden’s style. His reputation as a plain-speaking politician hides a more complicated truth. Before making up his mind, the president demands hours of detail-laden debate from scores of policy experts, taking everyone around him on what some in the West Wing refer to as his Socratic “journey” before arriving at a conclusion. 

Those trips are often difficult for his advisers, who are peppered with sometimes obscure questions. Avoiding Mr. Biden’s ire during one of his decision-making seminars means not only going beyond the vague talking points that he will reject, but also steering clear of responses laced with acronyms or too much policy minutiae, which will prompt an outburst of frustration, often laced with profanity.

“Keep As Much Money As You Can”

Short Fuse And An Obsession With Details can be both rightly and wrongly construed as positive traits depending on context.

"Obsession With Details" shows that he cares about getting things done right.

"Short Fuse" shows that he does not tolerate nothing less than a 100% perfection from subordinates.

In reality given his obviously degenerating speech patterns, his short fuse is caused by dementia. I'd feel sorry for him, but some spark of him that is playing above 70 some days or some hours of the day should have told him to quit or to not run for president. Of course when he was in his right mind, he knew he had to keep the Biden Ponzi scheme going and Hunter out of jail. So he ran knowing he would not finish the gig.

“Keep As Much Money As You Can”

Biden at times knows he is suffering and does not want to show it. He does not want to flub his line. So he has an obsession with detail, so he can appear healthy.

Where was the obsession with detail, when he plagiarized Neil Kinnock's speech, when Joe first ran for president in 1988 BC?

ah, poor Turley
has been trying to mock the left for some time under the guise of objective lawyer
In fact: Joe is who Joe is and the public thus far approves and Joe allows this said about him and Trump would never have allowed badmouthing without consequences...and the NY Times is suddenly an ok source since it fits the We Don't Like Biden narrative.
tip: Biden won. Get over it.

A five minute response time is superb. Did you run your answer past the watch desk supervisor.

I am going to assume there is a good chance you are a Chinese cyber warrior and part of a unit. Many partisan voters are so down with their party they will defend almost anything.

Still questions of fairness rankle.

When a corporation goes bankrupt creditors line up to get paid. It goes to court and a judge decides. There is an order pf precedence of who gets paid first, 2nd, and so on. Most American adults know this.

So how is it that Hunter Biden and James Biden get a Cool 1.4 million dollars just, because a corporation went bankrupt?

One more thing putz. Turley site was linked, but there are many sites that carry the text messages from the Chinese spy to the Bidens.

It's strange. Wanting to know details before making important decisions is, technically, a positive trait. Your typical anti-Trumper should find it to be a delightful contrast, at least, but also it is just generally preferable. The tone is indeed rather unflattering, though. One guess would be that writing about it in this ambivalent way would go down better than fawning praise.

why not then tell us what that link says:
"
In later emails, she also states that she tried to reach Hunter through various communication systems or platforms to no avail. She says that she would like to have a relationship as a girlfriend, but it appears that Hunter did not respond to those requests."
move on, you lose

Its not a bad assessment of Mr. Biden, if it were true. Nothing wrong with taking ones time to get complex issues right.

My problem with this article is that it is in the New York Times--a propaganda organ of the left. Probably the article is an elaborate hoax to contradict the perception of Biden as having dementia.

It depends. No one aphorism works all the time. It is with we have the phrase "cut bait or fish". Biden is the guy who was ambivalent about capturing or killing Bin Laden. It is a trait he shared with Bill Clinton

Too many sexual trysts
Too many nude pictures of butt naked Hunter, women and girl(s)
Too many business deals after flying Air Force 2

How many pepe get to fly Air Force Two on their way to China to make deal?

Must be common place, every day occurrence, no?

What were Hunter's or Beau's dog tags doing in JiaQi Bao's home and how many pictures did Chinese intel get? We know Hunter got plenty of nude selfies with and with women and girls.

"I got kicked out of the military for doing drugs, but I feel extra sexy humping a Chinese spy with my dog tags on!" - Hunter Biden

Good grief. Not presidential, it appears.

Trump was very presidential. that is why he lost a second term.

Grandpa Groper is very presidential, when he paws evert woman and girl in sight on camera.

For Chrissakes a secret service agent almost went to prison because he was going to lay VP Biden out for cupping the breast or squeezing the butt of his wife.

Definitely Grade A Democrat!

“after he cupped his girlfriend’s breast while the couple was taking a photo with him.”

“The situation got so heated … that others had to step in to prevent the agent from hitting the then-Vice President,” according to the report.

It would have been funny to see Gramps with a shiner.

Biden Swims Naked, Upsetting Female Secret Service Agents

Very presidential! ... in a Bill Clinton sort of way

Anonymous said...

Biden was naked. The females Secret Service agents were afraid.

Naked & Afraid ... not the reality tv series ... the real thing.

"You know, the thing! " - Joe Biden

Secret Service upset? tip: use male secret service dudes
all the above is simply horseshit. Fact: no indictment of Hunter either prior or post-election of Biden. Why all the stupid accusations? either you have something you can prove and indict him for or shut the fuck up

People can throw rocks, bottle, shine lasers, light fire, smash stores, throw firebombs all day and if arrested a Democrat attourney will just let them go without charges.

Of someone is unprosecuted, it does not prove the person is innocent. Often times it proves that a Democrat is corrupt and is a district or states attourney.

"Hundreds of protesters in Portland who were arrested in the past 80 days of demonstrations will not face any charges, Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt announced Tuesday."

Walk like a Democrat ...

Getting out is not going down the street a few miles in your safe lily white neighborhood. It means going farther away like a nearby cyanotic city run by democrats since forever.

Like Baltimore, DC or NYC.
