You’re right Rick, nothing stays the same. Even so, inflation and rising prices will be the number one issue most likely for the next four or five months if not longer. By number one, I mean the most important issue that overrides all other issues.
And yes, Biden was chosen because he was a safe bet to beat Trump. No other reason, no other reason needed when beating Trump was the only priority and the main objective of the Democratic Party.
What I like about Greger is he can see the whole forest, the reality of the political landscape of all America and not just the few trees that obscure the forest and political reality of all to just a few, perhaps 15-20% of all America. Understanding the politics of all of America, all the people that make up America with all their differing political views is important when it comes to elections and what may happen in the future. Just viewing the minimal political landscape through deep blue colored glasses, excluding those of the red and those whose glasses are much clearer provides a more meaningful picture of the whole forest than just seeing a couple of trees.
Greger and I both voted for Biden, probably for different reason or maybe not. But that doesn’t stop me or him from seeing the ineptness and the problems that are arising with the Democrats going into the 2022 midterms. All is not rosy; the Democrats have some huge problems to overcome if they’re going to retain control of the house. Maybe some that will be impossible to overcome, time will tell. Most Americans have moved on from Trump as the results of Virginia shows and the narrow escape of the NJ governor in a state where democrats out number republicans by a million voters. Now there are reasons Biden and company have fallen to around 41% approval and 52% disapproval. There’s a reason why now more Americans, however slight say they’ll vote for Republican congressional candidates next midterm. 43-42 Republican today whereas 6 months ago it was people stating they would vote for Democratic congressional candidates 47-41.
I think one can either ignore all the reasons and continue to spout partisan propaganda, viewing the 2 or 3 trees thinking they make up the forest by themselves or step back, acknowledge the problems, the reasons for the shrinking numbers of Biden and company, see what they are, try to view the whole forest of the real political world of everyone in America, then try to fix them, to do something about them. I’ll tell you this as proven by McAuliffe’s campaign in Virginia, Trump, Trump, Trump isn’t going to win the midterms for the democrats. Too many people have moved beyond him.
