As the Daily Beast’s Matt Lewis pointed out earlier, supporters of President Biden have nothing to point to other than the speed of the evacuations out of Afghanistan. Yes, tens of thousands of people have been evacuated, but how many are Afghan refugees, and how many are American citizens? How many American citizens have yet to be evacuated? And what was the deal leaving behind tens of millions in military hardware for the Taliban?
The Democratic National Committee on Tuesday released a statement crowing that Biden had defied expectations (again), which is sort of true. Our expectations of him were total incompetence, and he’s managed to exceed those expectations. The DNC also says Biden has exceeded his own goal in evacuating people from Kabul.

I agree, they should totally lean into this “success” for midterms.

“We got 6 Afghans for every American left behind. I’d call that a success!”

The whole statement is why people have TRUST ISSUES with the @POTUS administration!

Everyone laughs, but this is the stuff we’ll see on the ‘news’ while the complete and utter failure that is the withdrawal from Afghanistan will be completely white washed and anyone who remembers otherwise will be labeled a ‘conspiracy theorist’, all because midterms.

This is North Korean level propaganda. Absolutely bizarre. It's like they don't know that we know.

Even George Stephanopoulos told Biden, we’ve all seen the photos of people plummeting to their deaths … but that was four days ago, five days ago. Forget about it.

Nothing like taking a victory lap when you're in last place and the race has just started.

How do we know? How many were there? How many were removed? Are there any left? How do we deal with the $85B in military equipment left behind? So many questions, so few answers. To soon to say it was a success

What an absolute joke. It would be funny if it wasn’t so tragic and preventable.

It’s all just a political game to them, made clear by this statement. Shameful.

Whew! That's a relief! For a minute there it looked liked he pulled the military out without stopping to consider the implications of doing so, thereby stranding thousands of Americans in truly dire circumstances and alienating allies around the globe!
— Susurrous Schism (@susurrousschism) August 24, 2021
Every one of our allies has publicly stated the opposite. Americans are still trapped, civilian allies are still trapped, and the Taliban is now in possession of billions of dollars of U.S. military equipment. All Biden has done successfully, is hide and grovel to the Taliban.

Let us all pause and consider what failure might have looked like to the Democrats.
