After Joe Biden came in, it seemed like the last grip on reality that he or other Democrats had went flying off into the sunset, never to be seen again.
In its place, many of the Democrats have gone into wild hysterics, pitching all kinds of crazy to demonize their opponents and/or any of the policies that they don’t like.
We’ve seen that regarding so many issues. We saw it again in their reaction to Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) killing any hopes for a revival of Biden’s spending package, if it contains climate change or tax increases in light of where we are with the economy. Manchin is saving the country from further crushing inflation, but the other Democrats don’t see that. Or, if they do, they don’t let it stop their spending ambitions.
It would be much worse at this point if Manchin had not stopped Biden and the other Democrats from passing Build Back Better. Manchin is also ultimately saving the Democrats from themselves on the filibuster as well. If the Republicans take over the Senate in November, then the Democrats will be in the minority and begging to have the filibuster back. Indeed, the last year they were in the minority, they used it more than 327 times. Yet, they seem unconcerned about that very likely eventuality, still screaming to get rid of the filibuster–without a thought to how that might very well do them in, in the future.
For Manchin, it’s about the country and what the people back in West Virginia think, and they don’t want the crazy spending that Joe Biden and the other Democrats desire.
We had just a little more of it that we wanted to share with you so you could enjoy the sweet liberal tears. This is truly hysterical.
“We’re all going to die,” House Budget Committee Chairman John Yarmuth, D-Ky., told reporters when asked about the consequences of Congress failing to act.
Yarmuth’s remarks on Friday captured the cocktail of anger, frustration, resentment and powerlessness that many Democrats felt after Manchin, D-W.Va., took a one-man wrecking ball to what’s left of President Joe Biden’s agenda, dealing a heavy blow to their big policy ambitions and further complicating a tough midterm election landscape for the party.
“It doesn’t matter what I advise. The Senate’s the Senate. It doesn’t matter what any of us do. Apparently, it doesn’t matter what the administration does. We’ve got one person who’s trying to dictate policy for the entire country and that’s a shame,” Yarmuth told NBC News, describing the mood in the party as “incredible frustration.”
“Unfortunately, we have one Democrat who thinks he knows better than every other Democrat,” he said.
Sen. Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., openly questioned if Manchin should keep his gavel as chairman of the Senate energy committee.
The problem with this response is not only is it hilarious, hysterical, and wrong on the facts, but Yarmuth is also wrong because it isn’t just Joe Manchin — Joe Manchin is in the majority of the Senate in feeling on this, with the 50 Republicans; it isn’t just “one person.” It’s Yarmuth who is in the minority, not just in the Senate, but in the country as to what the focus and the concerns should be at this point.
When they get this hysterical, you know they are desperate and fearful of losing their power–and it’s a great thing to see.
