Where is it written that Republicans must ride to the rescue of Democrats as they teeter at a cliff’s edge, seconds from tumbling backward into the Grand Canyon?
Last Friday night found Biden’s presidency and Pelosi’s speakership on the verge of metaphysical collapse. Just days after the Democrats took a drubbing in off-year elections, from Virginia to New Jersey to Seattle, neither Biden nor Pelosi seemed capable of getting his $1.2 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework (BIF) out of the House and onto his desk for signature.
As Biden’s approval numbers careened downhill, he further embarrassed himself by dozing off at a global-warming confab in Glasgow. He then denounced as “garbage” a Wall Street Journal story about his plans to pay $450,000 per person to illegal aliens for “psychological trauma” related to family separation after breaking into America, uninvited. The White House backtracked on Thursday and said that Tuesday’s “garbage” was official policy, with which Biden is “perfectly comfortable.”
With so very much at stake, Pelosi called a vote on the infrastructure bill for late last Friday night. With the narrowest Democrat majority since 1881, Pelosi could afford to lose no more than three votes. If just four Democrats voted Nay, the 1,039-page BIF would fail on the House floor and plunge Biden and Pelosi into even deeper humiliation and political peril.
