THE WASHINGTON POST CALLS BIDEN CLAIM “FOOLISHNESS”

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JANUARY 12, 2022

        IS THE MEDIA WORM TURNING AGAINST PRESIDENT BIDEN? THE LIBERAL AND PRO-BIDEN

WASHINGTON POST IS NOW CARRYING STORIES AND EVEN EDITORIALS CRITICIZING THE PRESIDENT FOR

SOME OF HIS POLICIES.

        AN EDITORIAL IN YESTERDAY’S PAPER FAULTED THE PRESIDENT FOR BLAMING WHAT HE TERMED

GREEDY BUSINESSES FOR INFLATION. IT NOTED THAT “ECONOMISTS ACROSS THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM

ARE RIGHTLY CALLING OUT THE WHITE HOUSE FOR THIS FOOLISHNESS.”

        THE EDITORIAL CONTINUES: “INFLATION, WHICH WAS RELATIVELY LOW FOR YEARS, DID NOT

SUDDENLY RISE IN RECENT MONTHS BECAUSE BUSINESSES DECIDED NOW WAS THE IDEAL TIME TO

SQUEEZE CUSTOMERS. WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED IS THAT DEMAND SOARED FOR MANY PRODUCTS AS

THE ECONOMY RECOVERED. OFTEN, THERE WERE NOT ENOUGH PRODUCTS TO MEET IT, THANKS TO

SUPPLY CHAIN SHORTAGES, SO PRICES WENT UP.”

        THERE WAS ALSO THE RADICAL SPENDING POLICIES OF CONGRESS AND THE WHITE HOUSE.

        RARELY HAS A PRESIDENCY DISPLAYED SO MANY SIGNS OF FAILURE SO SOON. FROM A NON- EXISTENT

FOREIGN POLICY THAT PROJECTS WEAKNESS TO OUR ENEMUIES, TO A SOCIALIST DOMESTIC POLICY, THE

NEXT ELECTION CAN’T COME TOO SOON. I’M CAL THOMAS.
