Republicans are looking forward to the 2022 midterm elections. Right now, they are in the minority in the House and the Senate. And traditionally, the party in the minority does pretty well in the midterms.
Joe Biden, however, has an ace in the hole. According to many economic experts, the economy is set to boom. And that could help to convince voters to stick with Democrats going forward.
Conservative media, though, is going to do everything they can to spin the news. There will be plenty of talk about inflation, which is a clear side effect of the COVID-19 pandemic. This was the tack taken by Greg Kelly on Friday, when the claimed that Bob Dole’s death was very timely for Joe Biden.
The Newsmax host first said of inflation, “It is a big, big deal, but if you watched mainstream media’s coverage of all this, no, none of this is to be worried about.”
“I’m sorry, sad. Great life, great American life, but for the media and for Joe Biden, it could not have come at a better time because amid all of this negative economic news, they went wall-to-wall on Bob Dole’s funeral. this might have been the fourth or fifth ceremony honoring Bob Dole. He richly deserved it, but I think quite frankly, it was exploited by the mainstream media and by Democrats.”
