Wake up, Joe. Bipartisanship is a pipe dream.

I know what Biden tells us.

Let’s reach across the aisle.

But I ain’t buying what he sells us:

Reaching back there’s out of style.

Mitch McConnell's 'Senate Minority Leader' Demotion Makes People Giddy

  • McConnell made that clear; the problem is that there is no agreement with Manchin and Sinema. Considering the dumb adzed Mt. William WVa governor that was just on Face the Nation, we get an idea whom Manchin represents.

  • Congress does not exist at all to mend fences
    Obama himself said, "elections have consequences."
    Nobody believes the demented Joe Biden
    His handlers will ram through all that he's hiding.

  • In reply to Richard Davis:

    Yeah, I know, your Orange hero won Maricopa County bigly in the audit (speaking of the demented). Maybe someone should tell him and his followers, such as you, that losing an election by 8 million votes and about 60 electoral votes has consequences.

  • In reply to Richard Davis:

    Richard, you state in your Chicagonow blog that comments are accepted and we should have at it.

    But there's no option to leave a comment.

    Why is that?

    There appears to be the technical problem that he uses Facebook comments and FB is down. However, this is not the first time that he has engaged in hypocrisy (such as when the railed about commenters not using their full names in a comment using the screen name "Chef Boy RD"). The least one could do is be self-aware,

  • Like shopping for things I need, only to be told they're out of style, I agree with your comment about reaching across the aisle -- but I think it is very much needed. Trouble is, both parties (in the personal and political senses of the term) need to do some reaching for hands to connect. Hmmm, maybe they need reminding that the reaching and connecting are only figurative.

  • In reply to Margaret H. Laing:

    And nonexistent. I remember when, about 25 years ago, the now late and dead El Rushbo said in effect that bipartisanship to Dems meant that the Repubs should give in to them. Now Moscow Mitch says that the Dems should govern by themselves.

  • Why do they put party over country? People are dying of mutated virus and violence. If only politicians could work together! Well, it is a dream, maybe part of the American Dream.....

  • In reply to Weather Girl:

    I was having a discussion with someone who said "CBS Face the Nation is about issues, while ABC This Week is about politics." When someone else asked "what's the difference?" it came down to who is dealing with policy. For instance, most discussion on Sinema is that she used to be a greenie and is open to a primary contest in 3 years, while AOC at least is discussing policy in that her questions are about what does Sinema want to cut: day care, medical care, etc.

    jnorto has pointed out McConnell's position, which is purely political and to abuse his own power, no concern that it is hypocritical.

  • Bipartisanship requires two parties. Mitch McConnell said it all in May: "One-hundred percent of our focus is on stopping this new administration,"
