Matt Gaetz says his GOP colleagues pushing the now indicted "highly credible confidential" source were a little "over-sauced".

Democrats are quietly preparing for life after Build Back Better.

With little progress on Joe Bidenís signature legislation, elected officials and operatives from across the presidentís party are busy plotting how to run midterm campaigns without the benefit of a bill to bolster the social safety net and make generational investments to address climate change.

...in interviews with nearly two dozen Democrats involved in the upcoming election, there is an increasing sense that political inertia may well win out and that their party will be forced to radically adapt its core pitch to voters...

A high-profile failure to pass Build Back Betteró alongside an inability to move voting rights and police reform legislation ó could further depress Democratic voters who generally lose confidence in the president at a time when he desperately needs them to turn out.


When articles like this are written, I have to say, "Duh!"

What did Dems expect!!!!!? Their fairly slim majority in the House shrunk in 020. The Senate is split 50/50. AND, their President ran on the promise that he'd be the President of the people who voted against him as of the people who voted for him. The mandate of the last election is that the Dems rule with moderation and that they heal divisions. A mandate that they've ignored.

On those lines, the bipartisan infrastructure bill fulfilled the mandate. Everything Biden and Congressional Dems have done since has been a sucker punch in the gut of voters.

Joe Biden is a weak and pathetic leader. He can't get anything else done, even with control of Congress.

Imagine what will happen when the GOPs take the House. What are the chances that he'll be able to reach across the aisle to, say, Mitt Romney, when he can't persuade Joe Manchin?

From a big picture perspective, for a libertarian-ish person such as myself, the shenanigan-laced election of Joe Biden will turn out not to be such a bad deal after all. 021 was a year of governmental weakness and ineptitude. The next three years will be government at impasse.

    The sky hasn't fallen. So far Biden has to his credit:
    The $1.9 trillion Covid relief deal.
    The $1 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill. (Bridges are being repaired; projects are started. Trump only got as far as proclaiming "Infrastructure Week!" every other month)
    72 percent of American adults fully vaccinated.
    An economy where the unemployment rate has dropped to 3.9 percent.
    The current Dow Jones Industrial Average is at 35,930, an all-time high.

    How can it possibly be that Biden's disapproval can be so high?

    538 now has him 9+ points under water.

    BTW after one year, on 538, Trump was -2.8. Bahahahahahahahahahaha!

    How do you figure Trump was -2.8 on 538 after one year? His net approval was -16.6 which is 5.1 below Biden at the same times in their presidencies.

    Trump's approval was below 40 four years ago on about this date.

    Oops

    Joe's approval is dropping like a rock in a pristine, crystal clear pond..

    RCP: -14.8
