We could have done better. We already pointed out Kamala Harris’ approval rating and the many leaks about the divide between her and Biden. Lloyd Austin showed weakness in the handling of the Afghanistan pull-out and subsequent hearings before Congress. Alejandro Mayorkas is failing miserably with the Border crisis, and the calls for his resignation or replacement are mounting. Pete Buttigieg was off on three months of Family Leave as the country dealt with the worst supply chain issue in our lifetime. Diverse, yes. Capable, not really.
During his eight years in the Oval Office, Obama employed many of Saul Alinsky’s “Rules” but he was under the proverbial microscope and unable to make drastic moves as quickly as he wanted. He also discovered that neither “fundamental transformation” nor social re-engineering was going to come cheap. It needed a bankroll.

Someone would have to do something pretty bad to have a 38% approval rating, but in Biden’s case, he just had to be himself. How much lower will this number fall as some of these other numbers continue to rise? Let’s watch the downward spiral together.

The latest coverup by Team Biden vis-a-vis the alleged Cuomo sex scandal continues to pile dirt on the grave of the #MeToo movement.
Kristen Clarke is Biden’s pick for the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights position in the Justice Department. You might expect such a pick to be, at the very least, not an open bigot.
We need safe highways and efficient air traffic control, which means we need Buttigieg to do well. Pete Buttigieg’s sexual orientation has nothing to do with his job performance, but that is, after all, the entire point. Neither Pete Buttigieg nor anyone else should be turned down for a job just because they are gay, but they shouldn’t be hired strictly for that reason either.
