(TheProudRepublic.com) – In the face of decreasing approval ratings across the country, Joe Biden launched a surprise attack against Representative Lauren Boebert (R-CO), marking an instance where he specifically targeted a member of the Republican party.
During a recent visit to Pueblo, Colorado, as part of a tour of a wind tower manufacturer, CS Wind, Biden touted a liberal strategy to reignite his ailing campaign for the 2024 general election.
Biden’s visit to Pueblo, which falls under Boebert’s 3rd Congressional District, was likely chosen to slam Boebert for opposing the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) due to concerns over the negative economic impacts of his administration’s policies.
Despite polls revealing Americans are feeling the downsides of an ailing economy, Biden has insistently promoted his economic plan, claiming low unemployment rates and job creation as evidence of success.
At the CS Wind plant, Biden criticized Boebert as “one of the leaders of this extreme MAGA movement.” He highlighted her opposition to the IRA, questioning her stance and asserting the law’s positive impact on her district. Boebert voted against the bill for its inflationary impact amidst a looming recession.
Biden further touted the IRA’s role in promoting his green agenda along with other infrastructure initiatives, likely bloating America’s budget deficit, which Boebert warned against.
During his speech, Biden claimed that Colorado’s job growth since his inauguration and the broader economic growth benefited all Americans, particularly the middle class.
This visit came after a previous postponement due to the Hamas attacks against Israel and followed remarks where Biden blasted Boebert for opposing inflation-inducing federal funding.
Boebert, a vocal critic of Biden, is a prominent figure known for her criticism during Biden’s 2022 State of the Union address and for filing impeachment articles against him.
Her victory in the 2022 midterm elections and her high-profile status make her a likely target for Democrats in the 2024 elections.
Biden’s focus on Boebert during his visit highlights the Democrats’ anxiety over their strategies for and diminishing chances in the upcoming election cycle.
