IN OVER HIS HEAD: Republicans Get Out of the Way as Democrats Form a Circular Firing Squad. “The president badly overestimated his own abilities and underestimated GOP unity. He overestimated his ability to sell his agenda to both radical socialists and Main Street Democrats. In the end, the socialists undermined Biden by acting like radical socialists and throwing a tantrum when they didn’t get exactly what they wanted. And the Main Street Democrats got a bad case of the shakes when contemplating the passage of the $3.5 trillion budget bill without any obvious way to pay for it.”
I’m old enough to remember when Biden was sold to us as the man who could work with Congress, but aside from a couple of meetings with Manchin an Sinema, he’s been noticably absent from the process of pushing his own agenda.
He’s just not up to the job.
