President Biden went to Philadelphia this Friday to talk about a retreat for House Democrats. His speech was full of blunders and questionable claims.
The Philadelphia Inquirer stated that the retreat had gotten off to a rocky start once the Dems were forced to remain in Washington longer than expected. They have to negotiate about the $1.5 trillion omnibus spending bill.

Biden addressed the group on Friday to attempt to promote unity and excitement for the approaching midterms in November.
“This is the United States of America; we can’t be the country where for mom to get her kid on the internet to be able to do their homework has to pull into the McDonald’s parking lot,” Biden said. “I mean for real. That’s what’s happening.”
The story is very odd, and his general point about the importance of internet access has some merit.
It was the next couple of lines that brought sanity into question.
“This law’s gonna put an end to all of that, gonna put people in a much different position to be able to determine their own…their own judgments about when to sell their cattle, when they should… we’re just gonna change things,” Biden said.
We don’t understand why Biden jumped from the internet to cattle, and “we’re just gonna change things” is hardly a great rallying cry for his party.
“The moment it opens, it will be disbanded,” Biden said of the market. “Ya hear me? It will blow up.”

Biden defended his decision to kill the Keystone XL pipeline and try to minimize his impact on the rising gas prices.
“Folks, let’s get something straight here,” Biden said. “The Keystone pipeline was two years away and had been two percent finished. Give me a break.”
Biden tried to relay data from the recent fact-check article from the New York Times. Republicans’ accusations about the pipeline were misleading.
Biden made everything worse, and he and the times are missing the point Republicans make.
Even if it’s true, the pipeline would not have been finished by 2023, but one year has passed since Biden finished it. It would have been much closer to completion than it is now.
It’s not only Biden’s actions against the Keystone pipeline that Republicans take issue with. But, it’s Biden’s obvious disdain for extracting American oil that presents a problem.
Many inaccuracies and nonsensical claims marked Biden’s speech, but we are used to this, so it didn’t come as a surprise.
