Like vermin scurrying to safety, Democrats can see the mess the Biden administration is and are running for any available cover. They know history is against them, see Pelosi already feathering her nest in anticipation of the loss of the House, and see almost every issue not going their way. So they will start now with indirect criticism. As we get closer to election time more rodents will do somersaults off the SS Biden.

FNC: “As President Biden’s popularity among American voters continues to decline, so does his clout among fellow Democrats. An increasing number of Biden allies have voiced their disappointment in his handling of issues like the border crisis, Afghanistan and the Democratic-controlled Congress, where two major pieces of legislation furthering his domestic agenda remain stalled due to party infighting.
Objective reporting for the educated American.
The latest crack in the party foundation became evident Sunday after Virginia’s Democratic gubernatorial nominee Terry McAuliffe, who campaigned with Biden in northern Virginia less than three months ago, said he was ‘frustrated’ with the president and Democrats in Congress.”
“We have got frustration with Washington,” McAuliffe said on CNN. “Why haven’t we passed this infrastructure bill? It passed the U.S. Senate with 69 votes two months ago. I have been very straight on television. We’re tired of the chitty chat up in Washington. Get in a room and get this figured out. … They’re paid to get up in Washington, get this done.” He also said Biden is “unpopular” in Virginia.
Sarah Longwell, a squish Republican player who became a Biden fan in 2020, said Biden and Democrats in Washington “are in a morass of fighting with each over bills that nobody knows what’s in. It just looks like a cluster.” Rep. Stephanie Murphy, D-FL, a moderate Democrat, told the New York Times last week Biden’s governing “doesn’t reflect the skills I know he must have from his years as a legislator.” Rep. Jim Costa, D-CA, calls his president “disappointing” and said about the $3.5 trillion reconciliation package, “Well, if it’s not a priority for him, then maybe it’s just not a priority period. It’s a priority for me.” These rats are jumping early indeed.
