Governor Kristi Noem went on fellow menace to democracy Steve Bannon’s podcast this week to bash President Joe Biden… and to say that Republicans have been spending too much time bashing President Biden:
“We all failed in this election by not talking and telling our stories. That — what we did is what conservatives believed and it worked,” Noem said.
“You know, we got lazy and naive and started just bashing Joe Biden on his policies, which suck. Absolutely. They’re the worst in the country and, and, uh, you know, he’s embracing socialism faster than we can blink our eyes. But we have to talk about how what Republicans did across this country actually benefited the people that live where we live,” she added [Candice Ortiz, “Gov. Kristi Noem Says Republicans ‘Failed in This Election’ Because They Focused Too Heavily on ‘Bashing Joe Biden’,” Mediaite, 2022.11.18].
This from Kristi Noem, the flagship of whose campaign was JamieAndJoe.com, a website dedicated to identifying her opponent with President Biden so she could bash both with one brush:
Noem is so obsessed with bashing Biden (and always doing so in the vaguest sloganeering terms that will rouse her cranky “Let’s Go Brandon” base rather than in specific terms that could engage conscientious policymakers in an educated, productive debate) that she can’t even point out the problem with bashing Biden without bashing Biden.
