Joseph Robinette Biden will have his first State of the Union address on Tuesday night in the House chamber in the Capitol. Biden’s speech, last April, was an address to a joint session of Congress.  Something very exciting is already happening- Biden will act like – all of a sudden- COVID is over!

“NEW: Congress drops mask mandate ahead of Biden’s State of The Union speech on Tuesday “Mask wear is now an individual choice option,” the Capitol Attending Physician said,” Breaking 911 reported on Monday morning.

“Just 2 days after the impact research memo advising democrats to end covid was leaked. Incredible,” Libs of Tik Tok reported in response.

DEMOCRATS FLIP FLOP

“If President Joe Biden joins Democratic governors from around the nation in backing off COVID restrictions at his first State of the Union address next week, we have found the scientific study that informed this completely objective and not in any way politically motivated decision,” Conn Carroll from The Washington Examiner reported last week.

Impact Research, a Democratic polling firm, published a memo yesterday calling on Democrats to “declare the crisis phase of COVID over and push for feeling and acting normal,” Caroll wrote.

DEMOCRAT POLLSTERS SAY END COVID, FAST!

And for the first time since 2020, the House chamber will be open to all members and senators for the speech. As of now, the guidelines issued by the attending physician have lawmakers seated both on the House floor and in the galleries above. No guests will be allowed to attend the speech.

Biden will come to the Capitol on the 404th day of his presidency, during perhaps the most pivotal moment of his short tenure. In many respects, the nation – and even the world – is balancing on a tightrope.

The oldest president in American history – Biden will turn 80 this year – faces a trio of intractable political issues: a rapidly changing geopolitical landscape, the Covid-19 pandemic and soaring inflation that threatens U.S. economic gains.

On each issue, Biden has taken a position that puts him in stark contrast with the Republican Party and his predecessor, former President Donald Trump. 

When it comes to Ukraine, Biden is wrapping himself in multilateralism, the power of international alliances and collective solutions. Trump, on the other hand, was ready to leave NATO. On Covid, Biden has sided with his scientific advisers to a fault. And when it comes to inflation, Biden has proposed trillions of dollars in new government spending, which Republicans oppose.

Biden wants to return to a normal world – one where Covid is minimalized, the global community is stable and bipartisanship reigns on Capitol Hill. But the reality he faces is far grimmer. Even as the Omicron surge wanes, the fallout from the Covid pandemic – including a tidal wave of government red ink – will be with us for years to come. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is the latest sign that democracies are on the defensive. And the Trump-led faction still has control of the GOP, making Republicans a modestly unreliable partner in the American Experiment.

There are 253 days until the midterm elections when voters will render judgment on Democrats’ control of Washington. The White House hopes this speech will set the tone for the rest of the year.

The State of the Union is seen by both sides as a critical moment in Biden’s failing presidency.

Senior Advisor Biden, Mike Donilon, a senior adviser to the president, is working closely with Biden on his address.  Donilon was the chief strategist of Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign. Prior, Donilon was working as a partner at AKPD Message and Media
