Commentary: Biden needs to tell staff: You’re fired

No one is being held accountable for the administration’s blunders.

Next week marks 18 months of Joe Biden being in office, which supposedly was going to bring about a return to normalcy and grown-ups being back in charge. How’s that going?

Ask victims of the catastrophic surrender in Afghanistan, the southern border sieve, soaring inflation, record fuel prices, violent urban crime, and COVID-19 authoritarianism.

Team Biden is a risible failure of Obama-era retreads and dangerously under-qualified affirmative action radicals.

So while more White House staffers have fled the sinking ship than during prior administrations to this point, how many inept cabinet members and key advisors have been fired? With historic low approval and an autumn election comeuppance on the horizon, who’s been dismissed?

No one is being held accountable for the administration’s blunders.

Like a central planning despot, Biden demanded the nation’s gas retailers “bring down the price you are charging.” Mom-and-pop gas station owners, who work more hours in a week than teachers have since June, and make meager incomes, surely are the last people the president should blame.

Here’s some deserving people Biden can blame:

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is a failure among failures. He refuses to handle the worst border crisis in history but instead, like the entire corporate media apparatus and administration last year, wrongly demonizes our border patrol agents.

Attorney General Merrick Garland is too busy investigating concerned parents at school board meetings and being bullied by the abortion lobby to protect Supreme Court justices and tackle crime ruining America’s cities.

Interior Secretary Deb Haaland and Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm won’t seek new offshore drilling plans to increase oil supply, because they like seeing Americans suffer with $5/gallon gas.

Instead of addressing supply chain chaos, woke Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg is concerned with a $1 billion project to promote “racial equity” in America’s roads.

There is no reason for Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen — who dismissed inflation for a year and now seems focused on abortion and racial issues, neither of which fall under her purview — to still be working.

On the national security side, Lloyd Austin (Defense), Antony Blinken (State) and Mark Milley (Joint Chiefs) never were held accountable for the deaths and destruction their policies caused in Afghanistan last summer.

Despite a global pandemic, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra is rarely seen.

The White House press secretary, aside from being an ungrateful bigot, is exceptionally bad at her job.

In the real world, the worse you are at your job, the more likely you’ll receive a pink slip; for Team Biden, the worse your performance, the more job security?

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain, who effectively runs the country, probably encourages Biden to pursue blame-shifting for any troubling issue; maybe Biden should pass the blame to his failed advisors over their remarkably tone deaf, destructive ideas.

If Democrats want to avoid a November electoral drubbing, how about a fresh start with new personnel that will instill some confidence?
