After Trump and Biden, the nation needs new leadership and the Republican Party must lead the way

Five years later, it is clear that the United States is ready to turn the page on the Trump-Biden presidency. Yes, you read that right. It was not a typo. The two most recent occupants of the White House may come from opposing political parties and have different behaviors. Unfortunately, the failures of their presidencies have too much in common.

Both fell short in a global pandemic. Both fought to get their legislative agenda through a Congress controlled by their own party. Both failed to bridge the partisan divide. Both came to office with lofty promises. Both barks were worse than his bites.

Don’t take my word for it. I recently traveled to New Hampshire to meet with the first voters in the national primaries. By any measurable statistic, pimples are ready for something new. TO poll The New Hampshire Institute of Politics showed that 68 percent of voters believe the country is on the wrong track.

However, today, his approval ratings are upside down and 52 percent of New Hampshire Democrats aren’t sure if they want him to run again. Nationwide, the outlook is even bleaker Biden, with a recent USA Today / Suffolk University poll showing his approval at a meager 38 percent.

As a conservative Republican, I supported many, if not most, of Trump’s policies. He cut taxes, repealed regulations, and appointed stellar Justices to the Supreme Court. Anyone who cares about those fundamental principles should stand up and applaud those achievements. I certainly do.

Trump lost my support not because of what he did, but because of what he said. As Lieutenant Governor of Georgia, I had a front row seat to conspiracy theories surrounding last year’s election. Trump became the first Republican presidential candidate since 1992 to lose Georgia not to Hugo Ch├ívez or rigged voting machines. He lost because he didn’t carry his message to suburban and swing voters who hold the keys to victory. He had an impressive track record to talk to those voters about. He simply chose not to.

Let’s be honest: his opponent wasn’t formidable. Joe Biden became president because his advisers kept him hidden in their basement. It was an effective campaign strategy, but now we are all paying the price.

The first nine months of Biden’s presidency have been marred by incompetence, ineptitude and a growing crisis of confidence. Inflation has just reached a Maximum of 31 years, and Biden’s only solution is to artificially inject more taxpayer money into the fire. Their hostility to domestic producers and their capitulation to the environmental far left has jeopardized America’s energy independence and pushed gas and home heating prices higher and higher. Heading into the holiday season, the words “supply chain” suddenly become a kitchen table problem that disrupts everyday life. Meanwhile, terrorists rule Afghanistan and our 20 years of hard work were thrown out the window overnight.

It is time for a change, and the Republican Party, the conservative party, must lead the way.

We know that our conservative solutions work around American kitchen tables. We need to touch our messages and packages again and let voters know that we are ready to govern once again.

Focus on the future, not the past. Offer solutions to problems on the minds of voters. Communicate clearly and let swing voters know that pulling the lever for a conservative is acceptable.

Hopefully we will, because the stakes are high. Our nation cannot afford four more years of the Trump-Biden catastrophe.
