Oh, come on! You knew it wasn’t going to happen, right? I mean, you KNEW that Joe Biden didn’t have any magical answers on unifying the country. And, he just showed that his definition of “unity” was, “Do it my way, or I’ll leave you in the dust”.
Of course, I’m referring to the COVID-19 Relief bill that he rammed through Congress with nary a Republican supporting it in the Senate. So much for inviting people to the White House to have a confab over “working across the aisle”. See in normal parlance, “working across the aisle” means you give and you take. You don’t get everything you want and neither does the other side. “Unity” means we’re going to come together and work as one. We’re not going to be divided. We’re going to put our differences aside for a while. That is unless you disagree with me.
And that is exactly what Joe Biden did.
He said as much stating that hey, he wanted to work with the Republicans, but they didn’t want to work with him. Read that as, “They didn’t agree with me, so we left them in the dust, just like Bobo Obama, the world’s second biggest clown (next to Bozo) did with Obamacare.
So, I guess it’s safe to say that Joe Biden has no plans for unity. He has no plans for actually working across the aisle. At the very least, he didn’t show it on the one piece of legislation that could have very easily been a bi-partisan agreement. Instead, it was Chuck Schumer ramming down the throats of the Republicans exactly what Biden wanted, with no compromise, no thought of “working across the aisle”, no thought of “unity”.
So, is it fair to say, that the line Biden fed us during the campaign was more BS? I mean, he SAID he was going to send out $2,000 checks “immediately” if Ossoff and Warnock got elected to the Senate. They did. And now your check is going to be $1,400. Was that BS? He SAID he was going to unify the country. Do you feel more unified with the left today than you did two months ago? He SAID he was going to work across the aisle…just like he had over the past 47 years. Was that an example of what Biden meant when he said he was going to “work across the aisle”?
If you bought into the campaign rhetoric that was being spewed last year, shame on you. You should learn you lesson, and it’s not just the left that does it…it’s the right as well. But Biden was explicit in his comments. And he’s proven that he has had no intention what-so-ever to live up to those words. In essence, yes…he lied…again.
And this is exactly why the Republicans will take back both houses of Congress in 2022. They just received word that one of the still contested fights in the House of Representatives went to the Republican, which means there can be no more than four Democrat defections in the House. Oh, and there are two more contests still being contested with Republicans leading in both. So, the vote could drop down to a two vote margin for the left. And this is exactly why the Democrats have a hard time holding on to the White House. Going back 68 years or so (say 1952 because that was an election year) Republicans have had the presidency 40 of the 68 years, and the Dems have held it for 28. Reason? Well, as of late, it’s because you can’t trust them to say what they are going to do.
Joe Biden made a ton of promises in his campaign, and it’s going to be interesting to see how many of them get broken and how quickly. It certainly doesn’t look like he’s going to get schools re-opened in 100 days because he doesn’t want to piss off the teacher’s union. Nice to see who’s really running the country!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
