The Biden regime’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic is coming under fire from some surprising quarters.
A panelist on CNN said Sunday that President Joe Biden made a “huge mistake” by focusing too much on the vaccine and failing to invest in more tests.
“That was a huge mistake”
Despite billions of dollars authorized by Congress, Biden failed to prioritize testing adequately, Washington Post columnist Paul Kane said this weekend on Inside Politics, according to Fox News.
The White House was wrong to think “they could vaccinate their way out of this problem,” he said.
“This administration, with all the money in the world, from the bipartisan deals of 2020 and the unilateral Democratic $1.9 trillion bill in March, they had all the money in the world on testing, and they just didn’t focus on it. And that was a huge mistake,” Kane added, according to Fox.
While many in the media have criticized Biden on testing recently, they could be much tougher: Biden made it his core campaign vow to make the pandemic go away with “science” somehow, and he has utterly failed to follow through.
“It’s the worst kind of problem”
Biden now says there is “no federal solution” as he resorts to scapegoating and insisting that the country is in a “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” a lie that is belied by the recent omicron wave that is driving an unprecedented demand for testing.
The increased focus on testing comes as public health authorities and their media surrogates appear to be pushing the country to accept that COVID-19 is a seasonal virus, like the flu, that will never be eradicated — as “conspiracy theorists” on the right have been saying for some time.
Some argue that an effort appears to be underway to tamp down on the panic the media spent two years stirring up, with the midterms approaching and Biden’s failure to deliver on his outlandish promises becoming more glaring.
In the meantime, wild oscillations in messaging that have defined Biden’s pandemic response continue to sow confusion among those who still take the public health bureaucracy seriously. “It’s the worst kind of problem,” Kane said Sunday, according to Fox. “They have a policy problem and a messaging problem.”
Never mind tepid criticism of testing: When will the media actually come out and say that Biden has failed to control the pandemic, as he promised to do?
