Pence, Manchin, And Their Inner Marlon Brando

Joe Manchin gets the Brando treatment, too, and frankly I’ve tried “I could’a been somebody” on him as well. I can make it work. I can see Manchin folding like a flimsy deck chair, taking his one opportunity to truly save the nation and pissing it away just as Pence did. I’ve watched Manchin in politics for forty years, way back to when he was just a statewide row-office candidate.

On Being Joe Biden

ndeed, how can it feel to know you’re the least-loved man of your era? That no one who knows what you’re really about, at home or abroad, admires you or respects you or wants to be like you? That when you hobnob with foreign leaders, not one wants to stand next to you or hear your silly boasts or seek out your advice or win your approval or secure your friendship or even just pass the time?

Biden Is Unifying America…Against Him

These numbers show that Biden has not only lost the people who supported Trump but is losing his supporters. I think the Direction of the Country is the key indicator. People do not have confidence in the path Biden has laid out for us. There is no trust in Biden’s decisions or the feckless team of diverse secretaries in his Cabinet. These choices made by checking off woke boxes rather than choosing the best and brightest will bring down this President.
