Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) is definitely in over her head. She lacks the depth, intelligence, temperament, and willingness to do her job as a congressperson effectively. She’s one of the newest members of Congress and she, along with a handful of other deplorables, has quickly become the face of the QAnon party. Boebert is a font of disinformation (think COVID), untruths (think the Big Lie), and she is utterly lacking in self-awareness (think the mindless, hypocritical, and ironic tweets and statements).

This weekend, Boebert thought she was cleverly throwing shade at President Biden, who is on vacation near Washington DC. Boebert tweeted this: “No person who calls themselves the President of the United States should be on vacation while the world crumbles down around them. The dereliction of duty continues…” Boebert, who is on vacation herself, was making a reference to the situation in Afghanistan, a situation she no doubt lacks understanding of. She may want to refocus her attention on her own country that’s mired in problems itself.

Boebert doesn’t seem to have a problem that The Former Guy (TFG) spent nearly one quarter of his failed presidency on the golf course at our expense. And unlike TFG, President Biden isn’t disconnected from or unaware of the impossible and unwinnable situation in Afghanistan while he’s away from the Oval Office. Also unlike TFG, President Biden is not derelict in his duties or mentally checked-out. Just as Boebert has a right to her vacation time, so does President Biden. Biden is hard at working trying to undo some of the immeasurable damage that four years under TFG did to our country. The people of Colorado’s third congressional district would do well to vote out Boebert in 2022.
