President Biden has given his ‘word as a Biden’ that he’s feeling really optimistic about America’s future, despite his disastrous presidency.

High gas and grocery prices, 401k woes, border crisis, war in Ukraine, taking out a loan to buy eggs, civil unrest, but yeah, Joe, things are looking downright peachy!

Given the misadventures of Joe, James, and Hunter, I’m not sure why the Big Guy (and/or his ghostwriter) believes that’s a positive phrase for him to utter. As Stacey McCain wrote last march: ‘Simply Not True.’

Joe Biden believes he is honest, and that anyone who disagrees with him is lying, or is ignorant, or has been deceived by liars.

So deeply convinced is Joe Biden of his own honesty that he thinks his very name is synonymous with truth-telling:

When I first noticed him using this “my word as a Biden” phrase during the 2020 campaign, I was puzzled. Has the Biden family been so prominently associated with honesty that when Joe says this, most Americans say, “Well, that settles it”? Of course not. In fact, Biden’s first presidential campaign, in 1988, collapsed in disgrace specifically because of Joe’s dishonesty, when he was caught plagiarizing others — most notably British Labour leader Ne0l Kinnock — in his speeches[.]

And Joe’s multitude of additional lies and gaffes over the decades:
