We’re only 65 days into Bidens presidency and already it appears that he’s grasping at straws for some type of power.
I mean, can you blame the guy?
He’s literally losing on everything: the border, the virus, the pathetic stimulus, student loan forgiveness…the list goes on and on.
And in the face of all this defeat, Biden is now making a desperate move to undermine the fillibuster.
It’s odd because the fillibuster is something he actually fought to defend for many years in the Senate, but now as he’s seeing his presidency slipping into utter chaos, eliminating this seems to be his only option to ram through his agenda.
And he just said the quiet part out loud, during that disastrous presser of his.
Biden isn’t hiding what he’s going to do – are we listening and forcing the GOP to fight?
At this point, Biden dropped all pretense of bipartisanship in the name of ramming through his agenda.
“I want to get things done. I want to get them done consistent with what we promised the American people, and in order to do that, in a 50-50 Senate, we’ve got to get to the place where I’ve got 50 votes so the Vice President of the United States can break the tie, or I get 51 votes without her,” the president said.
In other words, damn the traditions of the Senate and damn bipartisanship, I’ve got to fundamentally transform the country yesterday!
After the president had a senior moment and lost track of his thoughts mid-sentence, he delivered the threat: “If there’s complete lockdown and chaos as a consequence of the filibuster, then we’ll have to go beyond what I’m talking about.”
CNN’s Kaitlan Collins asked Biden if he agreed with Obama that the filibuster is “a relic of the Jim Crow era.” The president flatly replied, “Yes.”
“Then why not abolish it, if it’s a relic of the Jim Crow era?” Collins replied.
“Successful electoral politics is the art of the possible. Let’s figure out how we can get this done and move in the direction of significantly changing the abuse of even the filibuster rule first,” Biden replied. “It’s been abused from the time it came into being by an extreme way in the last 20 years. Let’s deal with the abuse first.”
So it appears that Biden is dropping all pretense of trying to work on both sides of the aisle and is now going cutthroat partisan to shove his radical agenda through.
We all knew this day would come, just didn’t think it would be so early.
