Republican Senator from Louisana John Kennedy is known for having great quotes on TV and he just dropped another fantastic Joe Biden one-liner.
“You can lead a man to the presidency, but you can’t make him think,” the Senator said on Tuesday.
Kennedy was commenting on a resolution the GOP is trying to pass to focus Biden on the real problems facing Americans not spending billions of dollars on bike paths.
“What our resolution is intended to do is to try to get the Biden administration to focus on those issues that moms and dads are worried about when they lie down to sleep at night and can’t,” Senator Kennedy said. “Things like crime, things like the border, inflation, the baby food shortage.”
The resolution urges “the development of a strategy to counter the rise in violent crime across the United States” and “points out that the murder rate in America rose by 30 percent from 2019-2020, the largest single-year increase in more than a century” while highlighting “a 59 percent increase in the number of police officers murdered last year” and noting at “[a]t least 16 American cities set record for the number of murders in 2021.”
The resolution also demands that the White House take the border crisis seriously citing that 2.5 million illegal immigrants have tried to enter the USA illegally since January 2021.
“I think most Americans understand that in its first 14 months, the Biden administration has not exactly rocked it,” Senator Kennedy added. “The president, I think, has delegated an enormous amount of his responsibilities to his appointees.”
The senator from Louisiana explained that Biden’s appointees are “an interesting mixture of two groups.” One is “a bunch of uber-Washington insider elite types who mentally- haven’t been out of Washington mentally- for more than ten minutes in their lives,” he said. “They think Washington is America, and America is Washington.”
“The second group that he has running the show, and there is some overlap,” Kennedy noted, “I would describe as the crunchy granola types who like to attend gender reveal parties. I mean they’re very, very woke and they’re just not focused on the issues that are worrying ordinary Americans right now.”
