Democrats are at each other’s throats, and it is entertaining to watch!
The radical Left wing of the party and the more moderates towards the center are battling it out over two major spending bills: the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill and a massive $3.5 trillion liberal wish list masquerading as a budget reconciliation bill.
In a strategy of monumental idiocy, President Biden has tied the two bills together: either Dems pass the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package, or there is no infrastructure bill. End of story.
Of course, this is proving to be a foolish strategy because it boxes in the more moderate wing of the party, led by Joe Manchin and Krysten Sinema, who both support the infrastructure bill but don’t support the reconciliation bill.
And thus, the Democrat Civil War began.
So far, Manchin and Sinema are holding firm and aren’t caving to the radical Left mob who have harassed them repeatedly, including activists who followed Senator Sinema into a bathroom while accosting her for not supporting the socialist-lite spending monstrosity.
To make matters worse, Biden essentially condoned the mob tactics when he refused to defend Sinema and the moderates from attack and instead said that it was “merely part of the Democratic process.”
President Biden has this warped view that he was elected to pass an agenda to fundamentally transform America into a progressive utopia by passing legislation that dwarfs that of the New Deal of FDR and the Greats Society of LBJ was his historically calling.
Historians convinced him—wrongly—early in his administration that this was so. But these historians apparently neglected to tell him that the political realities are much different for Biden then they were for those other two Democrat presidents.
FDR and LBJ had massive majorities in the House and Senate, and both had won election by massive landslides—none of which Joe Biden has accomplished.
As it stands now, he has a 50-50 Senate and a narrow majority in the House, and he himself barely won the presidency.
For him to believe he has a mandate to govern from the far Left is asinine and a massive misreading of the political tea leaves.
Biden has been beholden to the far Left of the Democrat Party since he made a deal with the socialist devil himself, Comrade Bernie Sanders.
Sanders bowed out of the Democrat primaries when a deal was struck through what became known as the Democrat manifesto, which Biden agreed he would implement when he became president.
And so far, Biden has been a man of his word and has tried—often failing— to pass the far Left’s political priorities.
Keeping his word has hurt him with the more moderate wing of his party and by tying the $3.5 reconciliation bill with the infrastructure bill, he has put the moderates in an impossible position and has irreparably damaged the party heading into the 2022 midterm elections.
This is my objective view as a political commentator, but as a conservative, I relish Biden’s political mistake and look forward to the 2022 midterm elections with glee.
The Republicans simply need to mind their own business and let the Democrats destroy themselves, clearing the path to retaking Congress.
The question is: Will they screw it up?
