Biden became the most “Absent” in U.S History

Biden became the most ” Absent ” in U.S History

During his first term as President, Joe Biden has been confronted with a number of significant challenges from a variety of quarters. The situation at the border, the ongoing pandemic, Afghanistan, and the rapidly rising inflation rate are probably at the top of the list.

As a result of the challenges confronted by the nation, the populace believes that the President is putting in extra hours. Add to that the fact that there has been a worrisome uptick in violent crime across the country, and it is clear that the President has a lot on his plate.

But despite this, Biden is on track to be the leader who is the most absent in a very long time. This coming weekend, Vice President Biden will travel to Rehoboth Beach, located in the state of Delaware, to spend time at one of the two residences he owns in the state. Weekends are his usual opportunity to get away from Washington, and all of this unused time is piling up.

According to the Washington Examiner, he spent more than a quarter of his first year in office in Delaware. In fact, he spent more than a quarter of his first year in office in Delaware. Biden has been absent from Capitol Hill for a total of 188 full or partial days as of this point. If he continues at this rate, he will have spent a total of 553 days away from the White House, which is significantly more than any of his predecessors did during their terms.

For the sake of further comparison, former President Bill Clinton was absent from the nation’s capital for a total of 345 days; consequently, three of the four presidents who came before Biden spent, on average, more than 200 days longer in the White House than the vice president does.

In his two terms as president, George W. Bush racked up a total of 1,020 absentee days because he spent so much time at his ranch in Texas. On the other hand, he received a lot of criticism for this, whereas Joe Biden appears to be immune to any pushback on this topic from the mainstream media. Donald Trump, on the other hand, has referred to his time off as working vacations, while he has called President Obama a “habitual vacationer.

But the fact that Vice President Biden isn’t in Washington nearly as often as he should be has led to a lot of criticism, especially considering that most Americans, according to recent polls, believe the country is heading in the wrong direction. Because the national average price of a gallon of gas is getting close to $5 and the economy is in a very precarious spot, the majority of citizens would probably assume that the President of the United States would have a packed schedule.

After all, Joe Biden’s approval ratings are on the verge of reaching their all-time low (some polls show him with a rating lower than 40 percent), and Republicans are forecasting a significant shift in the balance of power following the upcoming midterm elections. Despite this, it would appear that Vice President Biden is not putting in any extra effort to address any of the most pressing problems facing the country.
