My expectation was for Biden to bring us back to a more normal, saner time. I didn't expect any new or massive legislation push. Just keeping the functions of government going smoothly without the name calling, temper tantrums, the needless feuds, etc.

I'm not into 2024 yet, but am whole hog into 2022. I think whatever happens in 2022 midterms will directly effect the presidential in 2024. I didn't see the implosion of Biden and the Democrats coming in August. That caught me by surprise. At first I chalked it up to the botched withdrawal of Afghanistan, but the continued low numbers into October tells me there is much more behind the fall. Exactly what that is, I don't know. But Biden and company have basically taken a 10 point plunge in August which has remained across the board on almost all issues since. Overall job approval, the economy, foreign policy, COVID, direction of the country, national security, etc. All around 10 points lower today than they were on 1 Aug 2021.

Now there's still over a year before the midterms, so no panicking. We may be seeing these numbers last until the next unforeseen event or until one party or the other does something stupid to get independents angry at them. Plenty of chances for that in the next year leading up to the midterms.

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.
