Larry Kudlow: This is a national embarrassment

right folks one of the key lessons we learned from the great Ronald Reagan my former boss was a very simple but powerful phrase peace through strength right now we have neither peace nor strength now to be sure after Joe Biden's catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan Biden has not launched any new shooting Wars but he is bringing the U.S deeper and deeper into the Russia Ukraine war he's already spent roughly 113 billion dollars in the past year undoubtedly much more on the way if he has his way meanwhile at home because of Biden's big government socialism his massive inflationary spending and tax hikes and over-regulations his war on fossil fuels specifically and the war on business in general because of all that we have a weak economy expanded only one percent last year with a six and a half percent inflation rate and the majority of economists and Business Leaders are fearful over a recession threat later this year or next during the Reagan tax cutting recovery the economy was growing nearly five percent annually for seven years today the bidens who favor redistribution and punishing success apparently are satisfied with an economy growing barely above one percent the Reagan boom doomed Soviet communism the Biden slump encourages our enemies Russia and China and that is why I say that today we have neither peace nor strength Biden may be chest thumping his Defiance over Ukraine but the reality is his failed diplomacy a year ago was a key cause of the Russian invasion instead of harsh economic sanctions ahead of the invasion Biden posed weak sanctions after it was too late and the Russian
