The Negotiations That Biden Has On-Going With The Repugs On Bills Like The Infrastructure.....

is the Repugs just running out the clock.

They have no intention of compromising with Biden and the Dems - they are just wasting time - to run the clock down to the Midterms.

The proof was in the Commission Bill - where they negotiated and the Dems basically gave them everything that they demanded.

When the time came for them to vote on that - they didn't honor their negotiated compromises. They basically - ran out the clock.

That's what they are going to do with everything.

Why are we playing into their hands?

4. Time for me

to send another letter to the WH. They have no intentions to approving these bills.

5. I'm guessing Biden's well aware of who he's dealing with.

He's been here before.
There's a method to his seemingly subtle actions. And then there's a result to follow that.


1986, SEN Biden to Schultz on SAfrican Apartied
It was after this speech by Sen Biden that the US finally placed sanctions on S African Boers.

6. I agree.

People need to stop acting like Joe Biden just rode in on a load of turnips and stop to consider that maybe, just maybe, this very highly experienced politician just might have some idea what he's doing.

8. Thank you!

This barrage of "Why doesn't Biden understand this as well as I do" criticisms from people who have never been near a political negotiation, much less been responsible for the outcome, is really tiring.

7. I trust Biden's judgment over any armchair quarterbacks yelling criticisms from the sidelines

I'm sure he knows the game, the players, the playing field and the best strategy better than all of us here.
