    Surge Summary: In his address to the nation [Thursday] night, President Biden couldn’t admit that whatever progress he’s made in the fight against COVID couldn’t have occurred without the vaccine and program developed under Donald Trump’s administration. Furthermore, he didn’t call on teachers unions to open America’s schools immediately.

    President Biden addressed the nation last night on the first anniversary of the pandemic lockdowns.  His remarks were meant to be optimistic and soothing.  You could be forgiven if you missed the fact that it was a viciously partisan speech.

    For whatever reason, Joe Biden just can’t acknowledge Donald Trump’s success in producing the COVID vaccines.  The only reason Biden could offer any hope at all is because Donald Trump produced the vaccines in record time, which many experts said was impossible.

    Trump pushed the major drug companies hard.  He ordered the bureaucrats to cut the red tape.  He launched Operation Warp Speed to get it done ASAP.  And Trump got it done!  Even some liberal critics have suggested that the vaccines could reasonably be called the “Trump vaccines.”

    But Biden gave the impression that because he won the election, the American people now have vaccines.  All he did was reorder more Trump vaccines, which any president would have done.

    Biden also bragged that we are on track to exceed his pledge of 100 million vaccinations in his first 100 days, or one million vaccinations a day.

    Well, here’s a fact check you won’t get from the liberal media:  No one said we couldn’t do a million vaccinations a day.  Donald Trump was already doing that when he left office.  Biden underpromised and now claims to be overperforming!

    If Joe Biden truly was the unifier he claims to be, it shouldn’t have been so hard for him to say, “Donald Trump and I disagree on a lot.  But I thank him for the vaccines that were already being distributed and mass produced by the time I took office.”

    Here’s something else Biden didn’t say [Thursday] night.  While describing the wreckage caused by the virus, he lamented that our children have missed a year of school.

    That was the moment for the president to say, “To my friends in the teachers unions and our big city mayors:  Stop playing politics with our children’s education.  Stop standing in the schoolhouse door!  Open our schools now!”

    With each passing day, it seems increasingly unlikely that Biden will run for reelection.  But he was apparently too afraid to make the teachers unions mad, so he didn’t say anything.
