Does Joe Biden ever get anything right?

It’s a good question. He surely doesn’t like to own any failure and he likes to shift blame when it happens. He’s already trying to argue why he hasn’t passed his bill that effectively tries to nationalize elections and grab power for the Democrats.

Biden calling out Manchin and Sinema:

So that’s just another blatant lie from Joe Biden.

The issue is not that Manchin and Sinema have voted differently so far, the issue is they are against blowing up the filibuster so Democrats can’t pistol-whip things through without 60 votes. That’s what’s at issue here. Biden wants to eliminate that so Republicans can’t use the filibuster to block anything. Biden wants to eliminate minority party rights, despite the fact that he’s fought FOR the filibuster for most of his career in the Senate. Despite the fact that the Democrats relied on it heavily
