To the editor: When he was president, Donald Trump obtained away with downplaying the pandemic, failing to produce states with badly wanted medical provides, rolling again environmental rules, claiming he was a genius and enjoying golf at each alternative. (“Biden is stuck with a divided party,” Jan. 20)
President Biden, having simply marked his first yr in workplace, is now being taken to process for not having solved each downside, apparently since the world started.
Yes, Biden does make gaffes from time to time when he speaks. Even former President Obama, a beautifully eloquent orator, made them.
But does anybody keep in mind Trump saying Yosemite “yo, semite”?
What’s worse, even Biden’s personal occasion can not seem to give the man a probability. This may very nicely be deadly in 2024. We did not elect God; let’s give the man a respectable shot at correcting issues which have been constructing for a while, not simply since January 21, 2021.

To the editor: If this previous yr han’t opened many eyes that Biden is lower than the process of working this nation, then nothing will.
It looks as if he has fouled up nearly the whole lot, together with the scenario at the U.S.-Mexico border, international relations, public security, the excessive price of dwelling, the pandemic and the Russian menace to Ukraine.
This president doesn’t present the management that we’d like in these very harmful instances. The public senses that it made a mistake in voting for him last yr; does The Times Editorial Board remorse having endorsed him?
Marcus Kourtjian, Northridge
To the editor: The largest and most frequently neglected success of the Biden administration’s first yr is that it has managed, regardless of the hypocrisy and outlandish lies of the Trumpist Republican Party, to revive a sense of decency and civility to the White House.
No quantity of political obstructionism can tarnish that glimmer of “normal” that has been returned to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
