(RoyalPatriot.com )- From the way President Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address began, you almost had to wonder if he was delivering a State of the Ukraine Address. Rather than kick off his speech on the state of our nation, the President recapped the ongoing war between Ukraine and Russia – a war the United States is not fighting.
Sounding at times like a coach at a pep rally instead of Commander-in-Chief, Biden opened his speech attacking Russian President Vladimir Putin for unleashing “violence and chaos” in Ukraine and vowed that Putin would pay a “high price” for his actions.
The president said Putin’s invasion “sought to shake the foundations of the free world.” He claimed that Putin thought he could bend the world “to his menacing ways” but “he badly miscalculated.”
After describing Russia’s invasion as “premeditated and unprovoked,” the president accused Putin of rejecting the West’s diplomatic efforts.
Then old Joe pretended he could read Putin’s mind, saying Putin thought NATO wouldn’t respond and Putin thought he could “divide us here at home.” But, Psychic Joe added, “Putin was wrong. We were ready.”
The president announced that the United States would follow Europe’s lead and close US airspace to Russian planes. But he stopped short of pledging any new significant aid to Ukraine.
After all his tough talk, Biden reiterated that the United States would not send troops to Ukraine to assist in the fighting.
And since this is Joe Biden we’re talking about, he also confidently added that Putin will “never gain the hearts and souls of the Iranian people.”

What Biden did not do, however, is vow to hit Putin where it would hurt – namely by boosting US energy production.
Congresswoman Lauren Boebert, however, did make a call for unleashing the US energy sector. She showed up to the President’s address wearing a “Drill Baby Drill” message on her back.
Then the president closed his State of the Ukraine address in a rather bizarre way. After the usual “God bless our troops,” Biden added, “Go get him!”
