It has truly been a comedy of errors for the Biden Administration. The comedies of both Biden and Harris has been wearing thing of late. Real Clear Politics reported that Biden’s approval rating has sunk to 33%. The tepid laughter is turning, finally, into anger and rebellion. Texas Governor Greg Abbott, in particular, has been going off on Joe Biden lately. The Republican politician has long been a political opponent of Joe Biden and he seems to be showing no signs of slowing down.
Recently, Abbott overruled Biden on the matter of the southern border. Abbott stated:
“In the federal government’s absence, the Lone Star State is securing the border. We’ve deployed the Texas National Guard & @TxDPS. We’re building a border wall & more. Texas continues to keep America safe.
“Texas is building its own border wall. The Texas National Guard & @TxDPS continue to work together to secure the border & stop the smuggling of deadly drugs, weapons, & people into Texas. #OperationLoneStar has led to more than 17,400 criminal arrest, over 14,800 felony charges, & more.”
The Governor went on to criticize Biden, as well as the mayor of New York:
“Mayor Adams’ problem is not with Texas.
“It is with President Biden’s refusal to stop this border crisis and secure our southern border.
“President Biden’s open border policies created this ongoing humanitarian crisis, allowing record-high illegal crossings and deadly drugs like fentanyl to flood into our state.”
“A crisis that has overrun and overwhelmed our border towns and communities across our state, whose requests for help have gone ignored and unanswered by the Biden Administration.
“I launched our border busing mission back in April to help our local partners, busing over 5,500 migrants to Washington, D.C. so far. Texas has not bused any migrants to New York.
“Instead, it is President Biden who has flown planeloads of migrants to New York.
“Mayor Adams should address his frustration with migrants to the root cause: Joe Biden.”
Governor Abbott then took to Twitter:
“Mayor Adams should address his frustration w/ migrants to the root cause: Joe Biden.
“I launched our border busing mission in April to help our local communities.
“Biden has flown planeloads of migrants to NY.
“The problem is not Texas. It’s Biden’s REFUSAL to secure our border.”
Abbott also seems to be celebrating. He tweeted out just earlier today that Texas is a job-creating machine! We recovered all jobs lost during the pandemic but didn’t stop there. As of June, Texas has added nearly half a million new private-sector jobs, more than any other state & more than the next two states combined! Seems like Texas is doing quite well.

As for Biden, Fox reported earlier today that a poll from the University of New Hampshire Survey Center released on Tuesday also indicates the president’s favorable rating is at an all-time low and that Biden’s tied with Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg when respondents were asked who they would support in the 2024 Democratic presidential primary. It seems the comedy may be stopping soon.
