Democrats Are Seconding Guessing Their Decisions Or Something

Oh, yes, they are having second guesses, but, of course, the exact wrong way

Dems second-guessing their strategic decisions

Exasperated Senate Democrats are questioning the strategy of President Biden and Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) after many months of negotiation with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) failed to achieve two of their biggest priorities.

In the midst of an intense heat wave in the American Midwest and Europe, Democratic senators are openly questioning if their leadership should have given more urgency to climate legislation by bringing a bill to the floor within the first six months of taking control of the White House and Senate.

“I think it was a mistake to wait when we did the American Rescue Plan and not do the climate provisions at the time,” said Sen. Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.), whose home state was ravaged by its largest recorded wildfire last month.

Heinrich on Tuesday expressed frustration that negotiations with Manchin on a budget reconciliation package dragged on for nearly a year and ended without producing a deal on tax reform or legislation to curb carbon emissions.

“Time is what we have here, and especially time in the majority. So it’s not fair to string people along for a year and not come to a conclusion. That’s just not an appropriate way to negotiate,” he said, expressing his frustration with Manchin specifically.

There’s also second-guessing of the fateful decision to split Biden’s hard infrastructure priorities — spending for roads, bridges, public transit, ports and airports — from his climate and social spending goals.

They’re internal polling for the mid-terms must be pretty darned bad in thinking they should have moved faster. Of course, how would that have happened since Manchin and Sinema weren’t going to cooperate, nor would any in the GOP? They just don’t seem to understand that citizens really do not want this garbage in practice. They’re living in a fantasy world, and want all that power.

    Mx Teach bases his conclusions on feelings derived from his right-wing cloister. But earlier this week in “Don’t Mess With” Texas, at one time, 102F was the lowest temp recorded statewide!

    Not a problem if the right-wing derived Texas independent electric grid was absorbing the increased demand! They couldn’t handle the deep freeze. They can’t handle the oven.

      From my observations Teach doesn’t base his conclusions on any “feelings” at all. Just reason, logic and facts. That must kill Dowd the crazy emotional wreck the it is.
