Liberals who once dreamed of a new Franklin Roosevelt are dissatisfied with the results of their narrow monopoly power over political power in Biden’s Washington. But their extremism also risks alienating important middle ground voters whose GOP should be properly dived and ready to occupy.
Incredibly, the country is struggling to create enough baby formulas to feed its babies – and having to fly emergency supplies from abroad – a metaphor if for a time when things didn’t seem to be going very well we would be.
