The Colossal Failure of Biden's Covid Plan

Joe Biden spent most of his 2020 campaign sitting in his basement telling everyone that Donald Trump had no plan to stop Covid.

He said this in the first debate with Trump at the end of September.


Biden said this at the end of October.

When Biden took office on January 20, 2021 he unveiled his Covid plan that he said was "comprehensive". "detailed" and "based on science not politics."

"Our national strategy is comprehensive, it's based on science, not politics. It's based on truth, not denial, and it's detailed," Biden said, speaking from the White House. He said the 198-page plan is posted on

Who is in denial right now?

Biden was asked in an ABC News interview this week why he did not have a better plan to deal with the Delta and Omicron variants and how he and his experts could have gotten things so wrong.

Biden's response is the height of denial.

"How did we get it wrong?" he responded. "Nobody saw it coming. Nobody in the whole world. Who saw it coming?"

Biden says nobody in the whole world saw it coming. 

That's interesting because I was writing about the Delta variant in India and the UK in April.

The National Institute of Health, which counts Dr. Tony Fauci as one of its employees, wrote this about the Delta variant in July mentioning that the WHO had designated it a variant of concern (VOC) in July, 2021 before the summer surge in the Sun Belt.

Let's take a step back and determine who should have seen any of this coming.

Donald Trump was totally blindsided by Covid. So was Fauci and the CDC.

Recall that Fauci did not want to cut off travel from China in January, 2020. Trump did it anyway.

Fauci was saying as late as the end of February, 2020 that the risk of Covid was "minuscule".

At that time Fauci was actually advising people to take precautions against a second flu outbreak of the season rather than Covid! This is our "expert".


Fauci doesn't want people to worry about coronavirus, the danger of which is "just minuscule." But he does want them to take precautions against the influenza outbreak, which is having its second wave."

The CDC had no approved tests for Covid when the pandemic first started. They were totally unprepared and the lack of approved tests was a major roadblock early.

There was also little personal protective equipment (masks, gloves etc) stockpiled in the national readiness reserve when the pandemic started. Obama/Biden had not seen fit to fund the emergency reserve during their tenure in office.

Despite almost no notice Trump ramped up tests, test sites, PPE and fast-tracked the vaccine effort.

Almost nothing was known about the lethality of the virus at the beginning. 

Recall those videos from China early in the pandemic of people walking down the street and suddenly collapsing and EMT crews in hazmat suits picking them up? How many times have we seen that outside of China? Looking back now do you think those might have been staged by the CCP to sow fear to the rest of the world?  

We knew nothing about the seasonality of the virus in early 2020.

Trump started from almost ZERO.

Contrast that with Biden.

The pandemic had been ongoing for a year when he took office.

Vaccines were already on the market and being distributed.

We knew who was vulnerable and who was at little risk.

PPE supplies were in ample supply.

Testing centers were available everywhere and at-home antigen kits had been developed for ease of use.

We knew that Covid had strong seasonal patterns so it should be easy to predict where the next outbreaks would occur by looking at the prior year cases and hospitalizations.

All of the heavy lifting had been done.

Despite all of the disadvantages that Trump faced, and the advantages that Biden had, Biden is presiding over a colossal failure in his plan for Covid.

2021 has already seen more cases and deaths than 2020.

We are now seeing a surge of cases unlike anything we have seen in two years of the pandemic.

There were almost 34,000 new Covid cases in New York yesterday. That is already more than double the peak in last winter's surge.

As I wrote in my last blog post, the line on the graph looks like an Omicron Rocket taking off.

Ironically, the greatest surge is in the city where Joe Biden and his Covid brain trust reside---Washington, D.C.

It now has the highest per capita number of cases in the United States. 

+541% in the last two weeks.

Almost 4x higher than the previous peak in that city.

Here are the other states at the top of the list for highest daily average case counts per The New York Times as of December 22, 2021.


These are all deep-blue Democrat states that were "all-in" on Biden's Covid plan for 2021. Most have relied on mask mandates, lockdowns and vaccine mandates all along.

How is this anything but a colossal failure?

Biden's new plan is telling the American people he is providing 500 million new home test kits that can be ordered for free through a government website.

Never mind that the order had not even been placed when he said this according to reporting by The New York Times.

"Mr. Biden’s administration has not yet signed a contract to buy the tests, and the website to order them will not be up until January. Officials have not said how many tests people will be able to order or how quickly they will be shipped once they begin to be available next month. Manufacturers say they are already producing tests as fast as they can.”

If manufacturers are already producing tests as fast as they can it will interesting to see where Biden gets 500 million new tests in January as he is promising. Does he have a call into the Chinese?

Never mind as well that the website will not even be up until January. Will cases be headed down by then anyway?

In the meantime, the Biden plan is to tell people they can get together for Christmas but they should test themselves (vaccinated or not) before meeting with family and friends.

However, there are almost no home test kits to be found anywhere right now.

And in many places, including New York City and Washington, D.C., lines stretch around the block for people waiting to get PCR tests.

Joe Biden was given every advantage and a huge head start in implementing his Covid plan compared to Donald Trump.

To use a sports analogy, Biden had a 50 yard advantage in a 100 yard race and he has tripped over his own feet 25 yards from the finish line.

Yes, Joe Biden has fallen and can't get up!

(The following graphic meme proves you can literally find anything your imagination dreams up on the internet!)


Whatever Covid plan he had is a colossal failure right now.

In fact, an expert on testing trends at Johns Hopkins says Biden does not have a plan, it's only a hope.


It seems that Biden still thinks he is an era when you don't have to deliver results, you just have to promise HOPE and CHANGE.

Where did he learn that?


Merry Christmas to all of my BeeLine readers.

The true meaning of Christmas is that there really is hope for all of us no matter how dark the night sky.

For He arrived in a manger in a stable in Bethlehem.

Dr. David Goetsch wrote about the hope that followed to those that follow Him.
