Commentaries, Analysis, And Editorials On President Biden's Press Conference On January 19, 2022


Daily Mail: 'Total disaster': Critics crucify Biden over his 'rambling' first press conference in 78 days in which he claimed to have 'over-performed' during first year despite 7% inflation, tanking approval, COVID chaos and woeful Afghan withdrawal 

* Joe Biden on Wednesday marked the anniversary of his inauguration with an almost two-hour press conference - his first in 78 days 

* Biden has held fewer press conferences than any of his recent predecessors, with only nine in his first year, versus 21 by Trump and 28 by Obama 

* The 79-year-old was asked to rate his performance in his first year and declared that he had 'over performed'

* Yet he was dogged by questions over the highest inflation in 40 years, the disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan and more COVID deaths than any year 

* Even Democrats such as Obama's speechwriter described his press conference as too long, while Republicans like Sean Hannity was scathing in their attacks 

Joe Biden sought to reset his presidency in a marathon first year press conference on Wednesday, vowing to reconnect with voters and touting successes, in an almost two-hour performance that his critics derided as rambling and incoherent. 

'I didn't overpromise, but I have probably outperformed what anybody thought would happen,' he said. 

'Can you think of any other president that's done as much in one year?' Biden asked, ticking off the epic struggle against COVID-19 and trillions of dollars in government funding to save the US economy from pandemic fallout.

Yes, that's bad, but we can see that's worse and worse with the time. How it will be month after month?
Ukraine was afraid, of course, and what about Taiwan? If a "small invasion" seems acceptable then China can invade just an island of Taiwan and do that again and again. Taiwanese's can worry a lot.
