Biden Challenged by Softening Public Support for Arming Ukraine

When he made his surprise wartime trip to the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv last week, President Biden reassured that country with great confidence that “the Americans stand with you.” But the question that remains unanswered is: For how long?

For all of the president’s bravado while he was abroad, the politics of Ukraine back home in the United States are shifting noticeably and, for the White House, worryingly. Polls show public support for arming the Ukrainians softening while the two leading Republican presidential candidates are increasingly speaking out against involvement in the war.

While the bipartisan coalition in Congress favoring Ukraine has been strong in the year since Russia’s invasion, supporters of more aid fear the centrifugal forces of the emerging presidential contest and growing taxpayer fatigue with shipping tens of billions of dollars overseas may undercut the war effort before Moscow can be defeated. And some of them are frustrated that Mr. Biden has not done more to shore up support.

Well, Biden and his people haven’t really done much to explain just how Russia will be booted from Ukraine, eh? Nor what the overall plan is. Nor, how this will be different from when Russia invaded and took over Crimea when Biden was VP, and still has it. It’s just a whole bunch of “we got this, trust us.”

Overall, public support for Ukraine aid has fallen from 60 percent last May to 48 percent now, according to surveys by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. The share of Americans who think the United States has given too much to Ukraine has grown from 7 percent a year ago to 26 percent last month, according to the Pew Research Center.

And even supporters make clear their commitment is not without bounds. While 50 percent of those surveyed by Fox News said American support should continue for “as long as it takes to win,” 46 percent said the time frame should be limited.

Support is nosediving among Republicans and Independents, but, among Democrats, who don’t do much else but use hashtags and Ukraine flags on social media, it’s still somewhat strong.

Aides said Mr. Biden’s speeches in Kyiv and Warsaw were intended for an American audience as well as international ones. But the president has shrugged off concerns about ebbing public support for the Ukraine supply effort, suggesting it is relegated mainly to what he calls MAGA Republicans, after former President Donald J. Trump’s Make America Great Again slogan.

When David Muir of ABC News noted in an interview last week that many Americans were asking how long they could keep spending on Ukraine, the president quarreled with the premise. “I’m not sure how many are asking that,” Mr. Biden said. “I know the MAGA crowd is. The right-wing Republicans are talking about, we can’t do this. We find ourselves in a situation where the cost of walking away could be considerably higher than the cost of helping Ukraine maintain its independence.”

What would be the cost? David failed to ask for that detail. If Russia controlled Ukraine, what would happen? And, why do we care? Leaders in other nations aren’t explaining, either.

“The problem is that the longer the war continues, the greater the risk that U.S. resolve will wane, no matter how much effort the president puts into convincing Americans to stay the course,” she said. “That’s why it’s so critical that the United States lean in now and help Ukraine end things militarily.”

Actually, the longer it goes on and the more the Biden admin and other governments give Ukraine in the way of advanced weapons the closer it gets to WWIII. And, considering Biden’s horrendous Afghanistan withdrawal, how much can we trust this administration?

    Mr Teach is right. The United States has no interest in Russia expansion into Crimea, Georgia, Ukraine, Belarus, Moldova, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Afghanistan etc.

    If Ukraine is not strong enough to keep Russia out it deserves to be conquered. Might makes right. Canada and Mexico exist as sovereign neighbors only because America allows it. For now. We could take Ottawa in a couple of hours. Since we are so much stronger than Canada why aren’t we entitled to their natural resources?

    Alaska is separated from our mainland because of Canada! Enough! In parts of Quebec and Ontario they even refuse to speak English! They put gravy on french fries, fer gawd’s sake. Canadians sneak into the United States to use our medical facilities. Their “entertainers” have infiltrated America, “grooming” real Americans to accept the Canadian philosophy – Michael J Fox, Mike Myers, Dan Akroyd, Shania Twain, Keanu Reeves, Ryan Reynolds, William Shatner, Seth Rogen, Donald Sutherland, Neil Young, Leslie Nielson, Leonard Cohen etc have spread Canadian ideology throughout these United States over the years.

      I would support annexing all of Canada other than Quebec and Ontario! British Columbia would be problematic, but as long as we call it a territory, and not allow the people there to vote, it could work out.

    • CarolAnn says:

      Atta boy Elwood. Dial it up to eleven you crazy commie.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        You support Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, why wouldn’t you support the United States’ invasion of Canada? Ukraine posed no threat to Russia and had resources and access that Russia wanted. Canada has resources we need.

        How about a peaceful transition that would even satisfy the de facto head of the Repubicun Party, Marjorie Traitor-Greene? An American divorce where the US annexes Canada and combines it with the US states of WA, OR, CA, HI, ME, NH, VT, NY, MA, CT, RI, NJ, DE, DC, MD, MI, MN, NV, AZ, CO and WI. And the nuConfederacy has the rest and maybe British Columbia to give you a land route to Alaska.

        Give Americans 5 years to voluntarily repatriate, then close to borders. Mexicans would stream in through Arizona since they’d not be welcome at all in the nuConfederacy via Texas. Most Blacks, LGBTQs, Hispanics, native Americans and Asians would move to the newly formed North United States and the nuConfederates would be happy!! You could make Christianity your state religion, ban all abortions outright, make rules about how to dress, rewrite your constitution; you know, make your own paradise! Few Blacks, few Hispanics, few LGBTQs, few libs, no mandated vaccinations, few Muslims or atheists – just heaven on Earth! You would still have most of the tornadoes and hurricanes but fewer Earthquakes and wildfires.

        • CarolAnn says:

          So to prove your radical anti American-White-Christian nuDemocommie political idiocy can be even more bloated with stupidity you up the ante by dialing it up to twenty-seven you fuckin clown. Control yourself already.

          We know you are scared to death as America slowly arises from the media induced stupor you clowns have imposed with 24/7 propaganda cycle disguised as news. We get it. Your fear of truth, justice, freedom, liberty and an American revival terrifies you. So does the mention of god or Christianity or morality. You should be terrified because we want greatness and you want perverted conformity and socialist “equality”.

          Greatness isn’t celebrating perversion or lowering standards. It’d the opposite.

  2. Jim Byrd says:

    You cowards are weak minded people who do not understand communist aggression. We will be drawn directly into the fight like it or not. Fight now or watch it grow bigger than we all can imagine. Remember the the failure of appeasement in two major wars.

    William Teach: If Russia controlled Ukraine, what would happen? And, why do we care?

    It would mean the breakdown of the international system of borders being established not being changed by wars of aggression, which the United States and modern democracies rely upon to ensure mutual security and open trade. It would weaken friendly alliances, threaten the right of a people to self-determination, and embolden tyrants. The fall of Ukraine would not prevent the United States from being involved in a foreign war, no more so than ignoring the invasion of China or Poland kept the United States out the WWII.

    William Teach: Leaders in other nations aren’t explaining, either.

    Sure they have. You’re just not listening.

    Macron: “What we have seen is a return to the age of imperialism. France rejects this and will steadfastly search for peace.”

    Sunak: “I am here today to say the UK and our allies will continue to stand with Ukraine, as it fights to end this barbarous war and deliver a just peace.”

    Scholz: the war’s central struggle is “whether we permit Putin to turn back the clock to the 19th century … or whether we have it in us to keep warmongers like Putin in check.”

    • drowningpuppies says:

      One doesn’t see Macron, Sunak, Scholz commit over $115 billion in military and economic aid to Ukraine.
      Money talks, bullshit walks.

      Now just go away, kiddieZ.

      Bwaha! Lolgf
