去年今天, 當拜登總統在國會大厦前宣誓就職, 全國人民帶著無比的希望和信心 迎接新政府的來臨, 對我們亞裔而言, 副總統賀錦麗能夠走到政治高峯 是多麼令人振奮而驕傲之大事, 但是一年後的今天, 拜登總统之支持度已降至百分之四十四, 而且全國民調顯示大部分人都認為他目前的施政方向是錯誤的。
首先是疫情大戰陷入疲軟， 政府顕得力不從心， 國內供應鏈問題導致物價高漲， 重大案件由於民主黨內之不團結在參院無法通過 ，國內治安繼續惡化， 紐約地鐵再度發生黑人瘋子推倒亞裔女子喪命 ，洛杉磯街頭公然集體打劫貨櫃， 雖然失業率下降， 但由於疫情和可以拿到救濟金， 許多人辭職在家不願回到工作崗位。
在外交上， 美國繼續和中國大陸對抗， 外交抵制冬運會 ，全面封殺大陸企業， 正在烏克蘭和歐洲訪問的國務卿布林肯， 希望化解俄羅斯對烏克蘭之出兵， 可能效果不大 ，俄國十萬大軍壓境 入侵是非常可能的事。
我們要呼籲拜登總統 ，必須調整美國外交政策 ，尤其是對大國之關係， 如果我們還在繼續對抗打擊政策， 世界將永無寧日。
拜登總统領導之民主黨政府是大多數亞裔支持的政黨， 未來三年如果政績無法改善， 民主黨很可能就要在野了。
President Biden’s Anniversary
January 20th is the first anniversary of President Biden’s coming to power. When we look back at the whole of last year, many people might be disappointed. Covid-19 has fallen into national fatigue, in-fighting against the pandemic in Congress and the Biden administration’s attempt to pass a major bill are challenges that still remain, but Biden is still repeatedly kidnapped by a few of his own democratic senators.
Because of a lagging supply chain and other problems, inflation has reached its highest point over the last forty years. Robbery and looting in department stores are going on in all major cities. Just last week in the New York City subway system, an Asian woman was killed when she was pushed down by a black man onto the train tracks.
On the diplomatic front, we are still using an anti-China policy of a diplomatic boycott of the Winter Olympics games. Hundreds of thousands of Russian troops have gathered on the border of the Ukraine making the tensions between Russia and the Ukraine imminent. Secretary of State Blinken who is currently visiting the Ukraine and Europe, hopes to resolve the crisis, but it may have little effect. A Russian invasion is very possible.
Today we are urging President Biden to change his current foreign policy. Close relationships and exchange is the trend of the world. We just can’t stop it.
Most Asian Americans are supporting the government led by President Biden. If its performance fails to improve over the next three years, the Democratic Party is likely to lose power.
