    Both presidents came in during a major crisis, which was partially due to either negligence or willful ignorance on their predecessors behalf. Obama successfully led the greatest economic turnaround in American history, Biden has led America towards recovery from the pandemic, but unwillingness to vaccinate, the DELTA variant, unemployment issues, and a renting and housing bubble are posing many challenges for him to tackle in the future.

    is Biden doing good so far? How does he compare to Obama?

    i mean, obama was so important for historic and symbolic reasons. but rn, imo, i feel the democrats have learned a few lessons from the obama years, esp in terms of how to deal with GOP opposition. child tax credit alone is a v meaningful achievement.

    has biden done anything to rival ACA yet? no. but the jury is still out on all the infrastructure bills. we get even a fraction of the reconiliation plans, thats a huge win.

    Definitely seems like the Democrats are better equipped this time around. I think they really thought the GOP hated Clinton especially during the Clintonian era, and didn’t expect them to continue the same strategies during Obama’s tenure.

    a couple things I’m worried about that I’d like to see Biden handle are slowing down the run away inflation caused by these tiny interest rates which leads into my next point which is the huge rental and housing increase.
    my loft I share with three roommates was 3k a month for the past three years but will be raising to 4.5k in September. With the low interest rates, I’m seriously considering moving to the suburbs and buying, but I’m also terrified to buy rn during the bubble and losing half of my homes value overnight.

    Agreed. Democrats are much more aware of Republicans game now of obstruction/stalling/running out the clock. They’re willing to engage in bipartisan talks to appease their more moderate members (Manchin/Sinema etc) but they’re not h--- bent on reaching a bipartisan solution. If Republicans don’t want to play ball, they’ll pass their own bill. Exactly what they did with the COVID-19 relief bill.

    not sure if i ever saw obama check notes on a briefing that happened 20 mins prior

    obama being pres meant nothing to me as a black man, even the royal family allowed a half black woman in their crib cause her descendants on her father side have blood ties to royalty just like barack’s stepfather was in bed with HW 50 years ago. obama used his “white side” to advance his career at literally every point in his life

    everything is a pander to black people on the left and it generally works every time, hate to see it

    Yeah. He was good at making people like him. He still loved them drone sounds though, but that war was already started when he won.

    Also notice how bidens so irrelevant resgod stopped posting? He can't do any more of his politically motivated "told you so!!!" posts and realised he's the only one in the world keeping up to date Biden so he was talking to himself and left. Bidens so irrelevant he's causing members to leave this f---ing board lmao

    Ngl I thought Biden will be a good president, but I saw a few interviews of his and it's safe to say his mind is gone, he really has no idea what's going on, he just mumble s--- lmao

    I genuinely hope this narrative, which likely helped Biden get elected, continues throughout his term. Y’all are setting the bar embarrassingly low which allows Biden to clear it with ease by simply talking in complete sentences lol. Dude passed the biggest stimulus bill since The New Deal & is likely going to pass some form of an infrastructure bill but yeah, he’s old & has a stutter lol.
