QOTD -- The Path Forward


"I understand we have to govern with the Senate we have rather than the Senate we wish we had. But engaging with these preening flakes [Sens. Sinema and Manchin] again isn’t a no-risk proposition. They’ve done more to harm Biden’s presidency than Mitch McConnell and Kevin McCarthy combined, and they’ll keep right on with their death-by-a-thousand-papercuts strategy as long as it keeps the cameras on their smug-ass mugs.

"Enough. Cut them off. Accept the fact that Republicans control the Senate, with the important exception of federal judiciary and administration nominations that require senate approval. Make the most of that scrap of power and executive orders, and work like hell toward holding the House and electing a real Democratic majority in the Senate this November. We don’t have one now."  "Betty Cracker" at Balloon Juice, on why "negotiating" with Sinemanchin is a proven, losing proposition.
