Biden is Failing– It’s About People

The Biden White House is hemorrhaging people, so is the entire Administration. This is not entirely unforeseeable, but small leaks in a boat are different from mass gashes in the hull.  An Administration that is disoriented on everything from energy policy to inflation, crime, border, Covid, Afghanistan, China – is now more than founding, it is sinking.  Telling sign – Not taking care of their people.

Colin Powell was a master of the idea: You must take care of your people. The military from George Washington knows this principle. The point is not condescension or paternalism, but respect, empowerment, caring for people you lead.  If you take care of them, they will of you and each other.

The idea is both simple and deep.  If you want to be the best fighting force in the world, defend freedom, and model trust in those who wear the uniform, then do not undercut, underfund, or disrespect them.  The same is true in any White House, having worked in both Reagan’s and GHB Bush’s. 

Love your job, mission, requirements, and trust vested in you – but love your people just as much, for they are you and you are they. Their loyalty to mission, willingness to risk, think ahead, stay late, rise early, and anticipate – depend on you, what you believe, and what you will do to see it through.

Reagan and Bush 41 inspired that kind of loyalty.  They were sharp, principled, mission-oriented, both men of character and cogency, inspiring in who they were, as well as where they led.

They also cared deeply about their people. Their history-shaping successes – both would admit – were not about them, so much as about those they led, who put in long hours, knowing they counted.

So, what is the contrast?  The current moment. Failures are mounting up, and the Biden team is fracturing, fraying, just flying apart like a non-integrated, poorly maintained, rickety old piece of machinery.  The process is solid, but the people are both failing and being failed by their leadership within.

 You can say the problem is burn-out or fatigue, that times are hard, that being in the White House is challenging, and that people are free to leave.  All true.  All a deflection.  What is missing is leadership, all-in, dynamic, caring and unfailing, and go-to-the-mat to help others, make it real.

What is happening, after just one year – less than a year – is that the Biden leadership team’s failure of commitment to you and me, to big principles, to real outcomes, to logic and tradition, what works and letting us all work, is also happening inside. 

The internal state in this White House is demoralized, disunited, a fumbling team with a fumbling coach, AWOL assistant coach, lots of chefs running around spoiling the broth, and no caring about your people.

What that produces is an undeclared recognition that everyone is vulnerable to political sacrifice, no one is respected, the team is nothing more than an assembly of – possibly talented – people filling slots. The result is utter dysfunction, followed by disillusionment, disorientation, and a rush for exits.  That is what is happening.  See, e.g., Biden aides catch the holiday blues.

So, where is the good news? Well, let’s look for it here.  If the word gets out that the ship is listing, maybe someone will emerge – even at a senior leadership level – who helps restore morale.  Maybe recognition will come that a leftward shift, drift, or lurch is a bad thing – so stop it. 

Or, more realistically, maybe the entire nation will wake up to what failed leadership looks like, will sit up, begin respecting the nation, our past, traditions, institutions, good leaders, and turn things around in 2022.  We will wait to 2024 for good White House leadership, but even now – we can see the truth. 

The signs are all there, and the truth is telling:  The external failures of the Biden White House are both a result of and similar to their internal failures.  People are leaving early because they are neither led nor cared about.  This is a misguided, misfiring, muddle-minded administration.

Until leadership changes, reengaging with the American people reflects some caring about accountability, truth, and where leadership lies, nothing will change. As news accounts suggest, we should expect more ship jumping, internal dysfunction, and failure at the policy junction.  The real good news is, people inside and out are beginning to realize – leadership matters, and starts with people.

RBC, you are correct in all aspects of the current leadership of this administration, there is none and there is nobody stepping up to take charge. The workers were lining up first being proud to say that they were working for a go getting administration that has crumbled over the past year and no where has any leadership come out to take the helm. The workers are jumping the ship to get as far away as possible so they can forget the ordeal. The real problem is “Who will be stupid enough to enter into this failing administration?” Only time will tell.

RBC,
You write “Until leadership changes, reengaging with the American people reflects some caring about accountability, truth, and where leadership lies, nothing will change.” Since those running the Biden administration have no intention of changing a thing as long as they continue to make progress on implementing their agenda by any means necessary, expect the personnel changes in the White House to continue. Most Socialists view people as inter-changeable cogs in the great machine. When one burns out or becomes a liability, they can be quickly replaced by another cog. I guarantee you that most of the senior White House staff simply views the American people as an inconvenient impediment they currently have to deal with until they can get their voter reform legislation enacted into law one way or another. Then the American people can be completely ignored as the transformation process kicks into high gear.

You’ve been to enough authoritarian countries to recognize the personality traits being exhibited by most senior Democrat officials in Washington. So you should also realize that authoritarian types don’t moderate their traits unless they are somehow forced to. Until the White House thinks their grip on power is truly at risk, there is no incentive for them to modify their attitudes.

There is an online computer game called, “Tropico”, where you are “El Presidente” who is in charge of the island and the keeping the people of your island happy. Sounds easy enough but I challenge anyone to give it a shot.
Find out what happens whenever the people of your island have had enough of their, “El Presidente”!

i have an analogy. Lets say we’re all on a train. Conservatives want to go to the right, commies to the left. In fact the train is moving relentlessly leftward, night and day. Conservatives are divided as to strategy. Some are content to slow the train and boast of surreptitiously applying the brakes. Others busy themselves with noting the apparent internecine battles the commies indulge in. Surely, they think, the commies will destroy themselves. Some even place their faith in the hope that the commies will have a change of heart; an epiphany. Even if ‘we’ take congress the train will keep moving left. The sad fact is that most of us dont see the lateness of the hour, let alone are able to conceptualize how to stop the train. Generic appeals to patriotism arent going to work. Btw, if i had a plan id lay it out. I just know i havent heard one yet. Also btw, the convention of states aint it.

Our people are not being taken care of by politically motivated people. These lying fools actually think they’ll get away with this. Remember people that wake up late often move damn quick when they realize the damage has been done. “LET’S GO BRANDON”

Biden was a failure long before being a failure now as a President. He’s just bringing forward what he has been doing for years. He’s in it for himself, his family, reason for Build Back Better which equates to Build Back Biden’s Bank Account Better (Ukraine, his son, his brother, etc.). Big bucks passing back & forth, and let’s not forget the Big Guy’s share.

And don’t forget, he doesn’t know what a pound of hamburger meat costs, but yet he’s going after the meat companies to do them harm. This just goes to show how informed he is, how much his staff is telling him, and the fact that money has no value when somebody else does the grocery shopping for him.

The one and only time I voted democratic was for Jimmy Carter. Never impressed with Joe Biden’s intelligence when he opened his mouth and the way he governs is a repeat of Carter. Sleepy Joe has been more sleazy and less trustworthy, a product of the Swamp. Not the government of the people, only for himself, just like his son Hunter who would make a profit falsely. To the contrary where Lincoln spoke of that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. Elections have consequences, I hope we can survive ….

I wonder if Delaware is aware of how incompetent Biden is. At this juncture it makes one pose in thinking … “How in the world did was Dela able to be satisfied with Joe Hidin’ Biden as a Senator?” Buck Fieden is the most modern self-serving politician I can think of in modern times altho a few others (Ted “reckless drunk driver killer” Kennedy, Hillary “broom rider” Clinton, Barshock Obiden, et. al.) were in close contention.

Hidin Joself Biden is about as good an example of why an “age limit” and term limits should be put in an Amendment to ward off, to some extent, rigged elections and senile old men being allowed to serve as POTUS or VPOTUS. But the over-aged disabilities, though variable amongst men and women seems unfair and unConstitutional to some citizens, I think the time has come to realize that may be the best way to insure that the values and laws and rights in the Constitution remain strong and serve the best interests in the will of the people. Biden is the near perfect example of how rigged elections and aging senility (and a crooked political career) are a danger to this Nation and Democracy ….. exposing it to the tyranny of Communistic governance (which historically also has a civil violence and human casualties to aid the its instillation).

Of course many people “want the job” because of prestige, attention, etc. Only natural. There is always the ego of those who want it and think they will be great at it. But only a few who get the job
have solid goals or purpose. Many get the job but don’t have a clue what is really needed with a well conceived plan of how to achieve the needed result. Biden wanted the job
(or at least the dims wanted him to have it) but there was no cogent plan on what needed to be done or how to do it. No attention to the economy or immigration or education or energy or various Chi-Com plots. Just Covid and Jan 6. Sad, really

Is it not taking care of its people or that joebama and his marxist handlers DON’T CARE about people ANY people??
Their actions show disrespect,disdain and outright hatred of REAL CITIZENS and AMERICA!
I believe they are narcissistic, self absorbed, immoral, corrupt self serving and consider everyone else beneath themselves!
THROW THEM OUT – SAVE OUR COUNTRY!
They must be beaten so badly that their anti American cancer can never again sprout!

RBC,
I really enjoyed your article, thank you!
What’s missing in everyone associated with joebama and this clown show is ANYONE with character, honesty, morals or a sense of Country first!
This is a group of self serving, corrupt,immoral, entitled,racist,divisive people absorbed in themselves!
Flawed people who inevitably fail!
With no heart, and no soul, epic failure is the result!

I don’t get it. These filthy, freaking fools are Communists. Communists DON’T care about people! They never have and never will. Why would one single person in this administration expect caring?
Are they all seriously retarded, too?

When we say, “You must take care of your people.”, we need to understand that in a democratic Republic this means to keep the people safe from outside enemies and from international crime, not to dictate the social lives of the people.
Biden is not failing. Biden continues to be personally financed to do the bidding of those radical Socialist billionaires and Communist China so these forces can successfully tear down the U.S. as a nation. The only ones failing are American citizens. We failed to prevent Socialism from infecting our education system, our governments and our very lives. We the People have allowed this monster to be created while we continued to feed it in the name of doing good for the people who cannot or will not do for themselves. Not many welfare styled programs have done anything to improve our poor. In fact, such programs have created more poor in the U.S. while making corrupt politicians wealthy beyond the imaginations of those who have produced the money they have taken for themselves.
Biden has not failed; We the People have failed ourselves. Can we turn the nation around to be what it was intended to be, a democratic Republic with a mostly free capitalist attitude?
