What would we do without the WaPo’s Jen Rubin? Usually, most human beings are right at least occasionally. But she’s evidence that someone can be constantly wrong. Some of those wrong takes are real whoppers, like the one where she urged the media to stop treating Republicans like they were “normal politicians,” claiming that they were “a party that spends its entire time cooking up ridiculous culture memes & fanning violence & coming up with outright lies.” She also flipped out with a nastygram to Politico after they asked her for comment on a story they were running about how frequently the Biden Administration was pimping her columns.
Then there’s her latest opinion piece which goes to new heights of absurdity when it comes to Joe Biden.
“If it weren’t for inflation,” her headline blared, Biden’s “economic performance would be unmatched.”
Here’s what she has to say.

Looking at the big picture, Biden’s economic record is extraordinary, but it is marred by inflation. Whether responsible or not for the latter, Biden is unlikely to improve the public’s surly mood until inflation abates. That is bad news for Democrats’ chances in the midterms, but if the Fed brings down inflation without driving the country into a recession, Biden’s economic record may be viewed as one of the most successful in history. That is a big “if.”
It’s comments like this that make one dismiss the media and any claims that they make. How do you judge the economy without looking at the inflation that is making this a horrible economy for Americans — the worst inflation in 40 years? And that’s not just some random problem he was stuck with — his policies of too much spending actively led to inflation. Some try to give him credit for “job growth,” and even that’s a false figure when it’s mostly people returning to work after the pandemic — that’s not Biden “creating” new jobs. How desperate are folks on the left and RINOs like Jen Rubin to try to cover for Joe Biden when they say unbelievable things like this?
Rubin got inundated with “if not for” statements.
Rubin’s statement has the same kind of vibe. The comment is similar to that made by Biden’s NEC director Brian Deese last September, who said if you just don’t count the price of meat, food wasn’t that expensive. He works for the Biden Administration, so we know he’s going to lie. What’s Jen Rubin’s excuse for prostrating herself before the incoherent mess that is Biden? And how pathetic of a transformation is that for someone who once claimed to be conservative?
But this is where liberal media is at now — she’s just one of the worst examples. They will say or do anything to help Joe Biden and the Democrats, whether it makes any sense or not. But Americans who have to deal with the economy and see that they can’t afford what they could before know the truth. They can see the difference in front of them and they can feel it hitting them right in the wallet. And it’s hard for the Democrats to deal with that, even if they have most of the media in their hip pockets.
The latest numbers in an NBC News poll aren’t looking good for Jen Rubin’s thesis or her hero, Joe.
The person in that poll that Americans laid most of the blame on? Biden at 38 percent. It’s that income falling behind, with the larger number of folks blaming Biden that’s going to kill the Democrats come November. All the ridiculous columns from Jen Rubin between now and then aren’t going to head that off. But rest assured, we’ll be seeing the White House team pimping this latest one from her.
