Liz Peek: Trouble for Biden – from crime to border security, here's why White House has reasons to worry


Sen. Barrasso blasts Biden for reversing position on signing bipartisan infrastructure bill

The Biden White House is in shambles. Polling shows the president’s approval ratings falling as voters become more concerned about his weakest issues – crime and inflation. Meanwhile, President Biden’s strongest suit – his handling of COVID-19 – is becoming less important, according to the YouGov/Yahoo poll.

Trying to counter these trends and put some points on the board has not gone well for the White House.  

In recent days Biden has managed to affront both Republicans and Democrats by issuing a series of head-spinning reversals on the bipartisan infrastructure deal crafted by moderates of both parties. The president celebrated the $1.2 trillion agreement with a cheery Rose Garden press conference, claiming "We have a deal," only to emerge just two hours later, threatening to veto that very same pact. 

The president explained that, great as the proposal is, he can’t sign it unless Congress also sends him a far grander bill puffed up with progressive wish-list items.  

He plans to push that second package, with a price tag of roughly $4 trillion, through via reconciliation, with Democrat-only votes.  "If only one comes to me, this is the only one that comes to me, I’m not signing it," he said. 

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., spoke for stunned Republicans when he said, "Really, caving completely in less than two hours, that’s not the way to show you’re serious about getting a bipartisan outcome."
