See.. this is where I don't understand

 I really don't understand people. Look at this cartoon. Now I know cartoons are used to define and exaggerate reality to find the truth underneath. But if part of the country really believes this, it is a problem with reality that you cannot reach. I don't even know what to do.


See here is the problem with this. 

  • The Economy is NOT bad. In fact, it is great. From Deloitte:  U.S. economic growth accelerated over three months ending in June, blowing past economist expectations and tamping down concerns about a possible recession. The U.S. gross domestic product grew by a 2.4% annualized rate to finish the first half of 2023,
  • The Border is NOT wide open. Since the end of Title 42 and new Biden Administrations (DHS Memo July 2023: As a result of planning and execution—which combined stiffer consequences for unlawful entry with a historic expansion of lawful pathways and processes—unlawful entries between ports of entry along the Southwest Border have decreased by more than 70 percent since May 11. DHS has overseen significant expansions in lawful pathways even as we have repatriated a significant number of migrants.
  • Foreign Policy is NOT a joke. We are out of Afghanistan (after 20+ years). We have seen a renaissance in NATO response after years of trashing NATO. And from Pew:After all-time low ratings in many countries in 2020 and a sharp recovery in 2021, ratings of the U.S. remain high this year. A median of 61% across the 17 countries surveyed have a favorable view of the U.S., while only 35% have an unfavorable view.
