Finally, a public appearance, and it’s all lies

Biden lies about COVID vaccine

I said I would credit Biden if he improved the vaccine roll out, but except for continuing the Trump policy, he has only made it worse, by extending the “teachers first” priority, which the CDC never recommended, to nation wide.

Instead of making it better, he just saw a parade and ran out to the front with a baton.

You had your chance Joe, but you’re just another pandering hack.

  1. RE: “Instead of making it better, he just saw a parade and ran out to the front with a baton.”

    A baton or a bludgeon?

    After insisting that we all get vaccinated, Biden said:

    “If we do all this, if we do our part, if we do this together, by July the 4, there’s a good chance you, your families and friends, will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout or a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day. That doesn’t mean large events with lots of people together, but it does mean small groups will be able to get together.”

    How good of him to offer his conditional permission!

    1. “Conditional permission” or signs of encouragement. You can have cookouts now, but caution is prudent.

      Much better to encourage COVID caution than attacking state houses, # LIBERATE. Or the US Capitol, doncha tink?

  2. Biden and Pelosi have hit the ground running and you just plain cannot stand it. “Sleepy Joe” has already done more for ordinary people in this country than any Republican ever. And that is in the first 60 days.

    You called every one of Trump’s 30,000 lies or so just normal exaggeration for a politician, jokes, misspeaking or hyperbole. Your opinion is clearly worthless since it is so entirely predictable and hypocritical.

    As for linking to PJ Media, what is wrong with you? You should not use a source to prove lies that is a source that lies. Elementary. This article gives Trump credit for the rapid development of vaccine. Bullshit. The first vaccines were not even developed in this country.

    And no Big Pharma company is going to sit on its hands in front of the biggest business opportunity in decades. As a free market cheerleader you should be the one pointing out this obvious fact instead of pretending that Trump was their inspiration.

    Trump’s vaccine rollout plan amounted to . . .
    1. Buy vaccine
    2. Have it shipped to the states.
    3. Hope they know what to do with it.

    So, it is wrong to say that Trump had no vaccine distribution plan. He did have a plan – a shitty plan that left vaccine distribution in chaos as he left office.

    1. Are you trying for a place in Biden’s speech writing team? I can’t imagine any other reason for still trying to deny the triumph of Operation Warp Speed.

      Absent the risk protection provided, many of the companies that are making vaccines wouldn’t even have tried.

      1. As I have said many times OWS was the right idea. I have even praised Trump in this regard. But, now that we have seen how it went, calling it a “triumph” is way, way over the top. The “plan” for distribution was both flawed and poorly executed. At best, it was merely OK. And it was semi-moribund in the last two months of Trump’s Presidency as his attention was 100% on “Stop the Steal.” Goals for 2020 inoculations missed by 85% and states everywhere could not get reliable information of what was in the pipeline.

        Trump claims credit for rapid vaccine development. That is just another Trump lie. The prime movers of the first vaccine were in the UK and Germany. American policy had nothing to do with their efforts.

        I simply disagree with your disrespect for the willingness of for-profit companies to go big on vaccine production. It seems that your belief in the energy and entrepreneurship of the free market fails you if it means that you have to admit that Trump had – at most – a marginal impact on Big Pharma plans to cash in on the historic money-making opportunity presented by the pandemic.

  3. Yeah, I knew this would happen and that dolt delivered on trying to claim credit. What’s worse is lefties pretending he did something and applauding him as king (rolling eyes). The latest is B**** telling states that they will make everyone “eligible” for a vaccine by May 1. First, everyone is already “eligible” anyway. If he means states will have adequate vaccine to give everyone a shot, states have no control over vaccine allocation and delivery from the Fed. The Fed does that you idiot!!!! States just place orders with the Fed and see what they get. Is it any wonder Obama never let him speak in public? Of course Northam likes to give our away.

      1. “… Elders . . .”

        There you go again.

        I have provided you with chapter and verse proving beyond doubt that the overall Covid death rate and – more significantly given your rants about Elders – the case mortality rate in Virginia is better than most other states and far better than some. But, as always, the actual facts cannot shake your preconceived idea that Northam is a “monster” pandering to political supporters at the cost of countless lives.

        Since you are struggling with the science, let me help. If Virginia policy were actually sacrificing the old for the benefit of the young (as you claim) then our case load would be skewed toward the old and, since the elderly are more vulnerable, our case mortality rate would be amongst the worst and not among the best.

        1. Your claim of superior understanding of what “science” means is beyond laughable since you absolutely ignore it unless it supports your ‘druthers.

          I have provided compelling data that demolishes your claims about the ill effects of Northam’s vaccination policies. You have NO ANSWER so out comes a classic bit of the ad hominem fallacy.

          Whatever my intellectual shortcomings may be, they do not change the fact that Northam’s policy as characterized by you would INCREASE the death rate and case mortality rate experienced in our state. If Northam is such a monster, “the science” would say that Virginia would have high rates of both. In fact, we don’t. We have done better than a majority of other states.

          2. “Virginia received enough vaccine outside the nursing home program to vaccinate every Elder in Virginia by mid-February”

            LOL! You really think you can make up any “facts” you want.

            Let’s start with this fact – There are 1,366K Virginians over the age of 65. As of February 14th the TOTAL first doses received in Virginia was 924K. So, even with ZERO vaccinations for hundreds of thousands of front line health care workers, it would not be possible for your imaginary claim to be true.

            If you would like to base your opinions on the FACTS and not stuff you pull from your derriere, the state provides easy access to the ACTUAL data here . . .

          3. The nuber I had seen was just under a million, and included those in nursing homes and patients of the VA system, both of which are vaccinated by Federal programs and not from the VA Health Dept allowance.

            But even if it had taken a week longer to get every last one over 65, vaccinating most of them before the winter surge would have prevented most of those deaths.

            Interestingly, many of Virginia’s Elders who did get vaccinated early got doses sent to hospitals for their staffs, who declined them.

            I don’t know why so many are refusing vaccination.

          4. Your claim that Virginia received enough vaccine to cover everybody over 65 by mid February is still complete bullshit. No amount of spin or shuffling of time frames is going to change that. The facts and the math are relentless.

            I have provided the definitive data. You were obviously not moved to admit egregious error by the facts. Nothing new there. So, instead you try to spin away the discrepancy between your claim and documented reality.

            So you try to spin away the data.

            Spin One – The Federal Long Term Care doses are not included.
            If you had bothered to look at the data provided you would have found this sentence . . .

            “Doses received include vaccine allocated to the Federal CDC Pharmacy Partnership for Long Term Care Facilities.”

            So spin one – the FLTC program distorts the numbers is completely false. Those numbers are included in the total doses received.

            Spin Two – The Veteran Administration has vaccinated a lot of people
            The Virginia figures seem not to include the Veterans Administration so I did some checking to see if your spin makes a difference. It does not. There are three Veterans Administration facilities doing vaccinations in Virginia. To-date (not mid February) They have provided a total of 27,433 first shots. Spin Two is not false but is not material.

            Again and again in your eagerness to slander Democrats you simply make things up and as in this case will not even man up and acknowledge the “error.”

    1. Bobr, I know that self-awareness is not a thing with you people so let me advise – any supporter of Trump who calls Joe Biden – or just about any sentient adult – a “dolt” is simply being ridiculous. You can criticize his policy, refuse to take the stimulus check he is sending and/or claim that he is taking credit that is not due. But he is not a dolt (def: “a stupid person”).

      The reason this bit if name-calling is laughable is because there has NEVER been a more “stupid person” in the Oval office than Mr. Trump. And you are a fervent supporter. His frequently professed claim that he knows more than anybody on just about any subject is all the evidence you should need to understand just how incredibly stupid he is. In other words, Trump truly is a “dolt.” President Biden is not.

ANd one even has the temerity to talk about how the bill is going to help restaurants, as if he supported it.

            Cute, but I do not agree that factual truth is a matter of perspective.

            For example, it is either True or it is False that Trump spent months downplaying the virus. The evidence – including Trump’s own testimony – is that it is True.

            For example, it is either True or it is False that the United States is among the worst impacted by the virus. The evidence is that it is True. If our response had been merely average, we would have somewhere north of 100,000 fewer dead.

            Yes, we may travel more and have different demographics than, say, Europe.
            But, we travel alone in cars. Europeans use public transport.

            Yes, we have a different demographic. Ours is younger than Europe. They should have HIGHER death rates than we do, not lower.

            The one factor that makes us nearly unique is the massive dishonesty and incompetence at the top that we suffered under until January 20, 2021. In no other country was the wearing of masks mocked by the national leadership and made into a political loyalty test like it was here. In no other country was the public told the virus was relatively harmless and going to disappear on its own “very soon.” I could go on, but you get the idea.

          3. The death rate has two parts. Transmission and age. Yes, we are younger, but young people traveling carry the disease back to the vulnerable. Right now, millions of young Americans are on Spring Break, enjoying themselves with others from across the country, feeling invulnerable in their youth.

            Their parents and grandparents will do the dying.
