"Fox contributor Mike Huckabee blames vaccine hesitancy on Joe Biden “boring us to death with a bunch of stuff where he says ‘follow the science'”

MIKE HUCKABEE (GUEST): Here's the thing. When my mother wanted me to eat spinach, she didn't try to tell me about the virtues of vitamin E. She told me Popeye ate spinach and I’d be strong like he was. Joe Biden needs to tell us the benefits rather than scaring the daylights out of us or boring us to death with a bunch of stuff where he says "follow the science". He’s not following the science Sean. If he was, he would be saying to congress "you guys have to mandate your own vaccines." They don't. And the reason? Because they think when they eat beans, they don't produce gas. So they ask the rest of America to do something we don't have to do when we are sick of it.

Can someone translate the bolded section above for me. I can't make sense of it. How does science lead to the conclusion that Biden should be telling Congress to mandate their own vaccines? What does "Congress mandating their own vaccines" even mean?

So it's not Fox and social media giving out all kinds of misinformation about the vaccine that's the primary problem, it's that Biden isn't telling people that taking the vaccine is like Popeye eating spinach. facepalm

Biden isn't lying. And they don't understand that.

Congress does not have a vaccine mandate. That is up to Nancy Pelosi, not Biden.

Just more hot air from Huckabee, not exactly a paragon of good health himself. Most people are ok with vaccine mandates and public health officials want them. Just more being on the wrong side of history.

An attempt at explaining the first part of this. I think Mike Huckabee is referring to the science of teaching.

Todd's good pedagogy is the key board

Huckabee seems to be telling it from the perspective of both an Evangelical preacher and stump politician. These are the things he knows and those things depend on being able to sell a story to his followers. He evidently believes they can't or don't think for themselves and therefore need someone to do that for them.

If you don't have a bill of goods to sell them, you aren't trying. I suspect he's correct.

You must be referring to Hunter. Joe Biden has done more for America (and the world) in his first six months in office than Trump did during his entire term.

...

Wait a second, Democrats have the narrow majority on both houses, if they passed such a resolution and some GOP refused to take the jab and could not vote, that would give the Democrats a supermajority in Congress.

A lot of High School graduates who went no further in their education, know what science is.

Whether she did or didn't graduate from High School isn't the problem here.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I can't figure out what Joe was done.

COVID is rampant
Illegal immigration at record levels
North Korea testing ICBMs again
Iran building Nuclear weapons
Inflation out of control

What has Joe done?

Not in her case...

The economy is growing, stronger than any time during Trump. A Dow of 30,000 doesn’t look so impressive when compared to where it is now. Record numbers of jobs available.
Covid is largely only rampant in GOP-controlled states where the population has been indoctrinated that vaccines and mask-wearing (and basic public health methods) are somehow political statements and “assaults on freedom”. Blue states and vaccinated Americans are doing pretty well, thank you.
North Korea is continuing the same course it has pursued for years. Trump had zero effect.
In contrast, there is no evidence that Iran is building nuclear weapons, despite Trump’s persistent efforts to botch Obama’s efforts there.
The core CPI just came in at 0.1% last month, indicating that people who predicted a transient surge look like they’re going to be right. The annual inflation number is not quite as high as the last time we had a sharp recession, in 2008.

…and for all of the heat Biden has taken, we’re no longer burning trillions in Afghanistan propping up a corrupt government.

That’s what Joe’s done.

Sounds like you're parroting Faux. Nothing on your "list" is directly the result of the Biden Presidency.

1. COVID is rampant - Made worse by anti-vax, anti-mask, tRump-loving voters and governors, and the Delta variant their actions have exacerbated.

2. Illegal immigration at record levels - Actually, NO. See the stats for May 2019. "...migration started to increase in April 2020 and 'continued to rise through the Biden inauguration. So it is not true that the increase started under Biden.' But the decision not to expel unaccompanied children 'sped up the increase.'”

3. North Korea testing ICBMs again - "again"? I call your attention to N. Korean missile tests 2017 through 2020.

4. Iran building Nuclear weapons - "For the first year after Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal, Iran continued to comply...Then...Iran began edging out of the deal, bit by bit." "Initially, this came through small and easily reversible steps...Eventually they restarted development of advanced centrifuges..." "In response to [tRump's] strike on Soleimani, Iran announced that it would no longer be bound by any of the agreement’s enrichment restraints."

5. Inflation out of control - Do you think a global pandemic and lockdowns might have an effect on the economies of the world? Hmm?
And for the record, inflation has been 5% or higher many times before: Jun-Aug 2008, Jan-Feb, May 1991, Jan-Mar, Aug-Dec 1990 (6.3% in Oct-Nov), Mar-Jul 1989 14.8% in Mar 1980! etc., etc. [www.usinflationcalculator.com]

1. COVID is rampant - Made worse by anti-vax, anti-mask, tRump-loving voters and governors, and the Delta variant their actions have exacerbated.
Actually California, washington, Oregon, New York, Pennsylvania all have more deaths than Florida. Yesterday Florida ranges 40th out of 50 states, not even adjusting for population.

2. Illegal immigration at record levels - Actually, NO. See the stats for May 2019. "...migration started to increase in April 2020 and 'continued to rise through the Biden inauguration. So it is not true that the increase started under Biden.' But the decision not to expel unaccompanied children 'sped up the increase.'”

April 2020 we had under 15,000, we have had over 200,000 each of the two last months. Over 19,000 kids in cages today

3. North Korea testing ICBMs again - "again"? I call your attention to N. Korean missile tests 2017 through 2020.

Trump stopped long range missile testing and nuclear testing. N Korea continued to test short range missiles. Now they are back testing ICBMs

4. Iran building Nuclear weapons - "For the first year after Trump pulled out of the nuclear deal, Iran continued to comply...Then...Iran began edging out of the deal, bit by bit." "Initially, this came through small and easily reversible steps...Eventually they restarted development of advanced centrifuges..." "In response to [tRump's] strike on Soleimani, Iran announced that it would no longer be bound by any of the agreement’s enrichment restraints."

News reports the development of nuclear reactors in Iran starting in late June of this year.

5. Inflation out of control - Do you think a global pandemic and lockdowns might have an effect on the economies of the world? Hmm?
And for the record, inflation has been 5% or higher many times before: Jun-Aug 2008, Jan-Feb, May 1991, Jan-Mar, Aug-Dec 1990 (6.3% in Oct-Nov), Mar-Jul 1989 14.8% in Mar 1980! etc., etc. [www.usinflationcalculator.com]

Ok, during Trumps term in office, hourly wages crew at twice the rate as inflation. Now it's reversed again. But if we look at critical categories, food, fuel, housing, those items are up over 17% which is devastating to low and lower middle income families

You make five claims. I refute all five, and your response is an “Ok” but… RollingEyesSmiley5

Take a look at the progression of hourly wages here:

The affect of inflation on wages has been an issue for almost a century; tRump didn’t change that, and it’s unlikely Biden will be able to either.
