It seems like not that long ago Joe Biden was blaming Donald Trump for covid deaths in America and claimed if he was elected he would shut down covid.

Of course reality has since set in and it’s clear Biden is not capable of shutting down covid, in fact the metrics have gotten worse since he took office.

Via Rich Lowry at Politico:

As the White House struggles to cope with a new Covid wave that might eclipse prior waves in the sheer number of confirmed cases, there should be, in the quiet moments, reflection and regret about the over-the-top assaults Biden and other Democrats made on President Trump and Republican governors for allegedly letting the virus run rampant through pure callousness and neglect. In reality, the virus has proved again and again to work in ways that are out of the control of governments both red and blue.

Now, Biden’s own pledge to “shut down” the virus isn’t aging well. He assumed, not unreasonably, that the vaccines would crush cases, when they have proved a much better protection against severe illness than against getting the virus at all. But he also believed, erroneously, that bad intentions and poor policies from Trump on down were responsible for the widespread outbreak last year, and he assured Americans that, with a change at the top, normal life could be restored.

This was nonsense back in 2020, but partisan self-interest led Democrats and many in the media to believe in this stilted, all-too-convenient account. Now, with Covid variants continuing to wreak havoc, they should know better.

Indeed, if Biden were now to hold himself to the standards and metrics he set out during the campaign, he would stand exposed as a cold-blooded monster who has presided over what should be a presidency-destroying public-health debacle. As it happens, after all the scorn he heaped on Trump for his sunny scenarios, Biden, likewise, has been too rosy, only to see extensive spread and a high level of deaths on his watch.

Biden always spews nonsense but the difference between him and former President Trump is few in the media hold Biden to the same standard, and the public knows it.

Now after taking a lot of heat it seems Biden is washing his hands of the problem and handing it off to the nation’s governors.

During a roundtable today Biden told the Governors assembled via video conference that there is no federal solution to covid and covid gets solved at the state level.

“Look, there is no federal solution,” Biden said. “This gets solved at a state level. I’m looking at Governor Sununu on the board here. He talks about that a lot. And it ultimately gets down to where the rubber meets the road, and that’s where the patient is in need of help or preventing the need for help. Look, gov, thank you for what you’re doing.”

So now he tells us. There is no federal solution to covid, it’s up to the governors to solve the problem.

Which is exactly what Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and other red state governors have been doing all along.
