How Joe Biden’s Ego and Insecurity Could Break a Deeply Divided Nation

How Joe Biden’s Ego and Insecurity Could Break a Deeply Divided Nation. By Stacey Lennox.

Joe Biden sold the American people a bill of goods in 2020. He is not a moderate, and he will make his mark no matter what damage it does to our institutions, traditions, or country. Biden is not even a Trojan horse for the radical Left. He is leading the charge to transform the country. …

Biden said he was not going to ban fracking, yet he did. He also said he did not support eliminating the filibuster. Yet, Biden may do all of this for no reason other than the ego bump of outdoing his former boss as a truly “transformational” president. After Biden was chastised, dismissed, and cast aside by Team Obama for Hillary Clinton in 2016, those close to Biden say he loves the narrative.

As Maureen Dowd wrote in The New York Times:

President Biden is being hailed as a transformational, once-in-a-generation progressive champion, with comparisons to L.B.J. and F.D.R. aplenty, while Obama has become a cautionary tale about what happens when Democrats get the keys to the car but don’t put their foot on the gas.

According to a report in Axios, Biden has a “New Deal” in mind. It involves re-engineering America quickly.

President Biden recently held an undisclosed East Room session with historians that included discussion of how big is too big — and how fast is too fast — to jam through once-in-a-lifetime historic changes to America.

Why it matters … The historians’ views were very much in sync with his own: It is time to go even bigger and faster than anyone expected. If that means chucking the filibuster and bipartisanship, so be it. …

Axios says four things are driving Biden to blow up the Senate and drive through radical legislation with the thinnest possible majorities:

  • He has full party control of Congress and a short window to go big
  • He has party activists egging him on
  • He has strong gathering economic winds at his back
  • And he’s popular in polls. …

Biden’s popularity is also questionable. … The daily index of likely voters done by Rasmussen … today … hit a new low at -11. President Obama did not have a negative result using the same methodology until June 21, 2009. …

There is bipartisan opposition to a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, and the border crisis is exhausting Americans’ patience with the immigration question. Large majorities of likely voters want secure elections and voter ID. Americans also want economic growth, not equity policies. The objections are already bubbling to the surface on critical race theory. And no taxpayer wants to go back to the pre-1996 welfare without work world, which is precisely what the child tax credit is. …

What Joe Biden is contemplating in a deeply divided nation will break the country. When the legal challenges start, he will seamlessly flip on court-packing in order to institutionalize his transformation.

A corrupt, senile old man going for broke, lying his ass off. What could possibly be worse? Oh, Kamala Harris.
