Maybe that’s when we conservatives start taking Joe Biden seriously.rear Republican steam rolling Having passed the $ 1.9 trillion COVID bailout package on a partyline basis, Biden is currently pushing for $ 2.3 trillion in infrastructure spending and a proposal to raise corporate taxes to pay it.

Ignoring that much of this so-called infrastructure spending is more like “human infrastructure” rather than roads and bridges, we’re still talking about huge amounts-and it’s a two-part It’s just the first half of the plan. But it’s not just big spending that’s worth noting. Notable is the way Biden, once supposed to be a compromiser of centrists, wants to thwart the plan. White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain told Politico’s Ryan Lizza on Thursday: “Finally, let me be clear, the president has been elected. To get the job done.”

Where have you heard of it? Yes Yes. It was in early February that 10 Republicans met Biden in the Oval Office to discuss the COVID bailout package. They were barely out of the open before White House spokesman Jen Psaki issued a statement very similar to Crane.In fact, I Interpreted her words as follows: “… Biden wants bipartisan support, But not bipartisan compromise After all (at least not so many), his plan was “carefully designed to fit the bet of this moment.”

Biden’s Revolution is doing what Obama and Clinton didn’t do

My reading at that moment turned out to be accurate, and I think it showed the strategy of the Biden administration.The· National Journal Josh Kraushaar describes the strategy as follows:What was promised was not unity, but power politics preferred by non-banned businesses. [Rahm] Thanks to Emmanuel, or even Mitch McConnell. “

Biden is not as ruthless as Ram, nor as moral and computational as Mitch. It actually makes him more effective. In baseball, a pitcher whose slow delivery goes against his speed is considered “sneaky fast.” The political version may be Joe Biden, who turned out to be “sneaky speed” and “sneaky party”. In fact, Biden’s ability to tell people to go to hell (in the way they look forward to traveling) may be his secret power.

However, during his short term as president, he reigns like a man on a mission. The desire to be a transformative president.. The backlash could regret not persuading Republican politicians. Alternatively, he could be unimaginably successful, and his legacy dramatically changed the size and scope of government in ways never seen since such things as the FDR’s New Deal and the LBJ’s Great Society. It may have been. The latter is a particularly interesting comparison, as the “Senate Master” inherited his liberal agenda from a younger, more charismatic Democratic president.

But what about those of us who don’t really want to radically change the country? Who is looking for us?

Republicans aren’t doing a very good job on it. At the very least, I haven’t heard much of a compelling warning about the debt crisis, the dangers of inflation, or the potential for tax increases to reach consumers or even employees. Where are the concerns about Democrats buying votes with free money?And most importantly, why Republicans blame so much Death of a small government? If Biden is scoring, part of the story is focused on Republicans leaning on a windmill, “owning a library”, and fighting chimeras, so sleepy Joe makes a social contract. It means that I hardly noticed that I was rewriting.

In the 2008 presidential election, Barack Obama said, “I think Ronald Reagan changed the course of America in a way that Richard Nixon didn’t and Bill Clinton didn’t.” .. The point is that you can be considered a successful two-term president (I think Clinton and Obama were in general) and can’t get close to making a lasting change. That is. From a progressive point of view, Clinton’s mistake was triangulation, which included adopting Republican language, such as declaring that “the era of big government is over.” Biden seems to have gone in a different direction.

Ronald Reagan was successful in both respects, winning the Cold War and taking office with the goal of regaining American optimism. However, the Reagan Revolution has also fundamentally reshaped the public consensus on the size and scope of government. “The long cycle of national government role and activity in the FDR’s New Deal began with the Reagan New Deal.” Written by Richard P. Nathan of Princeton University. “President Reagan has revolutionized the US government’s domestic policy, both in federal spending and the content and purpose of its domestic programs.”

What if Biden turns out to be a liberal answer to Reagan? But he is a terribly cunning Reagan, Phil Hartman Saturday night live.. Oh yeah, unlike Reagan, his party controls both parliaments. often”Transitional periodThe caretaker who endured to drive away Donald Trump really Transformational President bringing new political consensus? Imagine the irony when Obama turns out to be John the Baptist of Jesus Christ in Joe Biden.

what if Biden What they have been waiting for? As one politician says, this presidency can be a big problem.
