    Default Behind their big defeat, Democrats may have reached a turning point

    But what matters at the moment isn’t whether Biden ever believed the GOP would act differently. It’s that he seems ready to stop pretending that a dawn of bipartisan cooperation is about to break.

    Democrats, including the president who has spent so much time insisting that he can achieve bipartisanship, are simply done waiting for Republicans to see the light. The next step is for them to get mad enough to do something about it.

    If you’re a Democrat and you’re mad at Manchin and Sinema — and you should be — the answer is to make them irrelevant by electing a few more Democrats to the Senate.

    Biden wanted to reach across the aisle and the GOP chopped his hand off. Now Biden knows the future of the country is in his hands by leaving the Republicans behind.

    When Hillary lost to Trump I was not bothered. The US has been facing a crisis in democracy a long time. Want the President to be C.E.O. of America, as GW Bush said?
    That was Trump. We know now it does not work.

    If they were to start confronting their flaws they would quickly be forced to confront the fact that a good 90% of what they say and claim to believe is ether lies or Bull Shit.

    So they double down, and get even more abusive.

    WOKE is a Cult in every way.

    Default In Year Two, Biden needs to be The Boss

    Biden can and should give the nation more of what we saw this week, holding more formal news conferences and also dropping by the White House briefing room to make announcements and take questions. The news cycle is his to command whenever he wants, and doing so is part of his job.

    Biden admitted he needed to spend more time travelling across America and less time going to Congress. Excellent assessment.
