LARRY KUDLOW: The Biden admin needs to check all their badly managed operations

Fox Business host Larry Kudlow calls on the Biden administration to "check all their badly managed operations" on Monday's "Kudlow."

Joe Biden can blather on as much as he wants about Republican insurrectionism that never existed. I'm going to vote that the voting public could care less about what was essentially a protest rally that went bad three years ago.

Mr. Trump was neither charged nor convicted of insurrection. It's a Biden red herring meant to distract from all of the Biden policies gone bad. This will not work. Besides unaffordable Bidenomics, the catastrophe at the Southern border and $3 trillion of regulations stifling small businesses – even decent employment reports have been revised lower by an incredible 443,000 in just the last four months – here's another Biden policy blunder.

In the middle of two wars, arguably three if you count the southern border catastrophe, Joe Biden forgot to talk to his Defense Secretary for a week and now Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and the White House are scrambling to paper this over.


First of all, he was in the Intensive Care Unit, which is not the best place to manage bombing missions over Iranian backed terrorist groups. Or for that matter, to manage the U.S.-Israel alliance with American hostages still held by Hamas.

Then the Department of Defense tries to sell us that responsibility was shifted to the Deputy Defense Secretary Kathleen Hicks, but she was in Puerto Rico on vacation. Then they're spooning out that the Chief of Staff of the Secretary's office had the flu, so she couldn't tell us.

Here's two equally troublesome issues. First, what about the President's daily intelligence briefing? Has he been getting that without any DOD input? Or Lloyd Austin input? Isn't the Secretary of Defense supposed to be at the very least hooked into that briefing? Did Joe Biden not miss General Austin?

Then there’s the matter of the Situation Room. Situation Room staff is supposed to know where every cabinet member or cabinet level senior staffer is every day because the president might call.

From my own experience – the situation room people are very good and I worked for a president who was constantly calling at all times, day or night. One Sunday evening he tracked me down in the Washington, D.C. movie theater – just saying. The sit room people and the White House operators are as good as it gets.

How could this communications chain of command break down? There's something seriously wrong with the Biden operation. It has nothing to do with insurrection. The Bidens need to look at themselves in the mirror, re-check all their badly managed operations, and, while they're at it, think about completely changing their failed left-wing policies. That's my riff.
