It’s prices, not Putin, stupid

By Christian Datoc, Washington Examiner

There’s a growing sense of panic among Washington Democrats about the party’s midterm election prospects, with a number of them calling on President Joe Biden to focus more heavily on domestic problems rather than the war in Ukraine.

Numerous polls show voters of both parties are overwhelmingly focused on the economy heading into November. Biden and the White House launched the year with a pledge to travel the country more to explain how the president’s fiscal policies will “grow the economy from the bottom up and the middle out.”

However, for the past two months, Biden’s attention has been consumed by coordinating the West’s economic pressure campaign against Russia. John Anzalone, Biden’s campaign pollster, has said publicly that the president’s inability to advance his economic agenda, not to mention liberal social proposals, has forced voters into a “what have you done for me lately” mode.

“They don’t feel Democrats can get their s*** together and get things done,” he told Politico. “No one’s going to sit there as a Democratic consultant and try to bulls*** you that this is anything but a really sour environment for Democrats.”

Anzalone called 2022 “the worst political environment that I’ve lived through in 30 years of being a political consultant,” maintaining that Democrats have the “ability” to maintain a majority in the Senate but could suffer catastrophic losses in the House.

“There’s a big difference between losing 7 and 10 seats in the House and getting your ass kicked and losing 35, 40,” he added.

White House officials, cautiously avoiding Hatch Act violations that plagued the Trump administration, have avoided publicly weighing in on Democrats’ midterm election hopes but argue that the administration can “walk and chew gum at the same time.”

  • First of all…Biden isn’t concentrating on Russia/Ukraine. He has no idea who or what he is, let alone concentrate on the war. It is Bidens policies that have increased prices to the highest inflation levels in many years.
