Graham laments that Biden the ‘deal-maker’ is now ‘AWOL or doesn’t exist’: Report

For decades prior to entering the White House, President Joe Biden has enjoyed a reputation for being a relatively moderate, if somewhat garrulous, Democratic politician. In recent months, however, some of those who have known him for years insist something has changed.

U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), for example, recently asserted that he does not recognize the man in the Oval Office, declaring in an interview with the Washington Examiner that Biden’s bipartisan bent has been replaced with a sharply progressive ideology.

“The Joe Biden that we know that would be a deal-maker, that would find a way forward…is AWOL or doesn’t exist,” Graham told the Examiner.

“The best way to get something done”

Graham is not alone, with many on the right expressing concern about the president’s cognitive function and speculating about who is truly in charge of his administration.

After delaying his first solo press conference until more than two months into his term, Biden exhibited signs on Thursday that led some to believe he has lost a step. Over the course of a roughly hour-long conference, some of his answers left viewers scratching their heads.

“So the best way to get something done, if you, if you hold near and dear to you, that you like to be able to, anyway,” Biden said during one particularly confusing response, as the New York Post reported.

The president also seemed to rely on notes when addressing certain topics and certain reporters’ names had been circled, the Post said.

“He needs to re-emerge and re-assert”

Although Graham did not directly imply that Biden cognitively compromised, he hinted that the president is “not in charge” and lamented that the current administration is pushing the “most radical” agenda in the nation’s history.

The South Carolina Republican mentioned that he has not spoken with Biden since the election, and said Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) hasn’t either. From effectively opening the nation’s borders to placing an emphasis on transgender rights by backing the controversial Equality Act, it is clear that Biden is not the moderate president many of his early supporters had hoped he would be.

A disappointed Graham held out hope that the old Biden he once knew might still be in there, however, telling the Examiner: “If he does exist, he needs to re-emerge and re-assert.”

Even as he continues to strike an uncompromising and partisan tone, Biden nevertheless claims to be a pragmatic politician, using such language as he threatened to end the Senate filibuster.

“I’m a fairly practical guy,” he claimed during Thursday’s press conference. “I want to get things done. And if we have to, if there’s complete lockdown and chaos as a consequence of the filibuster, then we’ll have to go beyond what I’m talking about.”

  1. Why is anyone surprised.. Why did the think he hid out and let the press do the job of running for him?
    The real question is “Who is really acting as President”? Who is the director of this sham? The Soros machine?

  2. I was never fond of Joe Biden. I would have gladly accepted him as POTUS if I were convinced that his administration were legitimate. IMHO, Biden was preferable to HRC and most, if not all, of the other Democratic Presidential contenders. However, this individual is not the Biden I expected. It is as if he is a puppet.

  4. Some elderly organization needs to step in and help Joe Biden to keep him from being paraded around with Dementia….Period .Shame on his wife, Kamala, Pelosi and Obama!!

    1. Deborah, I completely agree with you wonder if there is a way to get them out. That would really put pelosi under, just dreaming.You know Obama is running his third term, Biden is a ghost. I saw Obama being interviewed , he said he always wanted to run a term from a basement , that tells you who is the one that is letting Joe hide out while he makes the decisions, should be against the law, I would think.

  5. The Joe Biden that was once was is no longer that is way the puppeters picked him to run for president . The DEMS got their wish now the rest of us have to pay for it .There should have been a physical for both canindates before the election and full disclosure on both.

  6. Jill Biden should be arrested for elder abuse If Joe Biden had campaigned no one would have voted for him and I’ll never except that 80million people voted for him Donald J Trump is my president election was stolen Kamala Harris is evil she laughed at the boarder crisis she laughs anytime she doesn’t want to answer a question just like Hillary Clinton so evil

  7. We the people really know everyone running the show , too fix the mess we are in you need too start with all the ones who destroying our country ,I feel the people have spoken a lot but we feel know one is hearing us or that for some reason the people we are all talking about are untouchable,but please someone somehow stop them make our country strong again ‼️Please ‼️

  8. Ok health care workers I spotted the problem in his debates and it’s gotten worse besides Pelosi Schumer Schiff Harris and In the background Obama which is my opinion but it makes sense don’t it

  9. Biden and Harris need to be impeached and any Democrat that can not stand for America and our Constitution need to go to. Call, write and email your Representatives Senators daily until we get results. Write to the supreme Court about the treason committed in the election. Urge them to rethink their decision to not look into the election fraud before our country goes down in flames.

    1. Thanks Marie for the valuable info.
      The Democrats are experts at lies and trickery. They conjure up some kind of problem to get people focused on it, while behind the scenes they’re creating a way to get a Leftist program through Congress.

      They really wanted to have the first woman President to be a
      Democrat. They knew she wouldn’t win against President Trump. They needed to nominate someone who was
      known to everyone. The problem was Kamala needed to
      be schooled on Foreign Policy, and a lot more of the
      general duties of the Presidency.

      They needed Joe to hang around his basement, while they gave Kamala enough knowledge to sound like she knows what she’s doing. She not dumb, she’s a quick study. Pelosi and her Gang of thieves had another problem. They really didn’t think Biden could beat President Trump. Biden didn’t campaign, but sat in his basement drinking warm milk, and watching a rerun of “All the Presidents Men.” he already knew the fix was in. Well, maybe he didn’t know. Maybe “doctor” Jill was coordinating with the Swamp People.
      I find it interesting that she’s been awfully quiet lately. We all know that Biden is suffering with dementia. It’s painful to watch him struggle, no matter how long they practice with him. Yet, at times he seems coherent.

      Suppose, just suppose, Pelosi’s friends in the movie industry, had a Hollywood Double for Biden. If they can find one for Queen Elizabeth, they can find one for anybody! That sure would explain why Biden seems okay at one time, and completely in another world at other times. He even looks better groomed during some of his public appearances.
      Now, Pelosi and Schumer are taking advantage of the border “CRISIS” to put through their HR1 bill, and try to erase the 2nd Amendment calling it gun control. They know most
      Americans object to the Democrat’s obsession with destroying the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. What better way of eliminating a revolution than to confiscate
      our guns. Like I said at the beginning of this post, the
      Democrats are Masters of lies and trickery.

      Sorry this was so long, but I am concerned about what’s happening to our Country. I agree with all of you. The Democrats think we’re stupid. The only defense is to show them at the polls, by overwhelming them with Conservative votes.

  10. Just a reminder a genuinely deadly pandemic doesn’t require 24/7 advertising to remind you it exists.
    Real pandemics don’t need marketing campaigns and endless propaganda….. But

    Psychological Operations
    DO.

    If the virus is so deadly we wouldn’t have to worry about the boarder most of them would be dead.

  11. Agree with all posts! Granted, there is a disease out there killing people, but it was a planned release to put attention on the “ plandemic” so the machinery to steal the election was bieng put in place! Fauci has a LOT to answer for, he is STILL lying about covid. He knows a lot more than he is telling! And—- he is one of the ones behind it!

  12. Biden will have a lucid moment every once in a while but he is a puppet for the progressive movement. If patriotic people don’t stand up and bring an end to the disaster called Biden-Harris the country will be lost to the communist world.

  13. Everybody has to wake up and unite from all the atrocities they been doing to Americas, and to the world. Our freedom is in grave danger. And all Demoncrats are the instruments ….they use in destructions.

  14. Get rid of this entire party- they are evil, paid for by commies, especially China, to ruin the US. The CCP is evil and should be wiped out and replaced by people who can run the country without persecution of its citizens.
