Stacy McCain reacts to Jill Biden's comment that Joe had such high hopes, dashed by bad things happening, Biden Just Had Such Bad Luck, Y’all. "As usual, Ace of Spades had the best headline for this: “Doctor” Jill Biden: Joe Biden Had Such Wonderful Plans For the Presidency He Usurped But Darnit, The Actual Task of Governing Keeps Getting In The Way!"
The things that have been “thrown at” Joe Biden are mostly the direct consequences of his own bungling and bad policy choices, not to mention the fact that the Democratic majority in Congress is controlled by its most extreme fringe, so that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer keep stumbling over themselves in a futile effort to appease AOC and her “Squad.”

At the Pipeline Michael Walsh, 'End of Quote. Repeat the Line' "The empty suit and the empty head that currently masquerade as the president of the United States is now subject to the one thing he never was during his undistinguished, comically malevolent, supererogatory, opportunistic career in the Senate: scrutiny."
