believe it or not, a majority of Americans still approve ending the war in Afghanistan, but a majority also think Biden botched the withdrawal. I agree because of most Americans short memory, what is taking place right now will have little to no bearing come Nov 2022. But I also think what happens in Nov 2022 will have a lot of bearing on Nov 2024.

Some other hot issue or unforeseen event will replace what we're all hot and bothered today. Apparently the vote on the infrastructure bill won't take place this night as promised by Pelosi. She's a very political savvy gal, but perhaps even her savvyness may not be enough to overcome the number problems or the in-fighting among moderates and progressives.

What was it Will Rogers once said, "I'm not a member of any organized political party, I'm a Democrat."

We'll see.

It's high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first instead of their political party. For way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
