President Joe Biden speaks as he meets with India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the Oval Office at the White House in Washington, D.C., September 24, 2021. (Evelyn Hockstein/Reuters) The president’s critics must stop letting him off the hook and treating him like the prisoner of Pennsylvania Avenue.

My fellow Republicans and conservatives have disappointed me lately. Yet again, the Right is too nice.

While my free-market friends count themselves among the president’s most fervent detractors, they nearly all make excuses for Biden. I constantly hear reasons why he is the last person who deserves any blame for the Technicolor epic fail that is this administration:

Someone else makes the decisions in the White House. 

Biden’s not in control.

He has no idea what’s going on.

Biden doesn’t know what day it is.

Nonsense.

This is Joe Bidens White House, and he calls the shots — or at least goes along with what happens there and across the executive branch that he oversees.

This has been so since Day One of Biden’s presidency. Nobody forced his hand as he signed a slew of executive orders that killed the Keystone XL pipeline, halted construction on President Donald J. Trump’s signature southern-border wall, shredded the Remain-in-Mexico policy, scrapped the 1776 Commission, and so much more.

More recently, Biden fully embraced the $3.5 trillion tax-hike-and-“free”-goodies bacchanal and the $1.2 trillion bridge, tunnel, and Green New Deal blowout, both stalled on Capitol Hill — for now.
