Joe Biden is living up to the words of former president Barack Obama who said, “don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f–k things up.”
Boy is he ever.
Biden is now being mocked for his abyssal attempt to reopen schools.
On December 8, 2020 the Associated Press reported that Joe Biden vowed to get schools reopen in the first 100 days of his administration.
“It should be a national priority to get our kids back into school and keep them in school,” Biden said. “If Congress provides the funding, we need to protect students, educators and staff. If states and cities put strong public health measures in place that we all follow, then my team will work to see that the majority of our schools can be open by the end of my first 100 days.”
Here’s a pull quote from the AP report that is amusing:
Biden provided few details on how he will achieve that goal except to say that officials will prioritize getting vaccines to educators “as soon as possible” after health care personnel and people in long-term care facilities have gotten them.
Biden didn’t have a plan, he honestly thought Trump was incompetent and when he took office everything would better. Biden’s officials had a superiority complex and even later admitted to Politico when they took over officials were “humbled.”
Almost a month into his administration with the clock counting down schools having one day of in-person teaching is the best he could muster.

That is pathetic and even the liberals on Meet The Press are warning Biden that parents no mater their political ideology want kids back in school.

But if you ask the Biden administration they think kids going to school one day a week is a “bold and ambitious agenda.”
So was Biden’s vaccination plan until they learned that Trump was already distributing at least 1 million doses a day.

Biden received more money from teachers unions than any other candidate during the 2020 election cycle and now they want money. That’s why schools aren’t opening, Biden owes them and they are going to hold his feet to the fire at the expense of American children until they get what they want.
