Monday, on a call with state governors, President Biden signaled a big pivot from previous talking points by letting everybody know “there is no federal solution” to the Covid problem. That was a really strange thing for the person who promised to “shut down the virus” to say — unless you realized the claim was BS from the beginning. Related to that, here’s a doozy from current Biden chief of staff Ron Klain last June during the campaign last year:

President Joe Biden said that the COVID-19 pandemic “gets solved at the state level” because there is no federal solution during a virtual meeting with state governors and his COVID-19 response team Monday.

“Look, there is no federal solution,” Biden said in response to statements from Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson. “This gets solved at the state level. My message to the governor is simple: If you need something, say something and we’re going to have your back in any way we can.”

It’s amazing how quickly things change when you’re forced to go from empty rhetoric to recognizing reality:

Biden said he would “shut down the virus, not the country” during a presidential debate against former President Donald Trump in October 2020.

How did that work out?
