In the shameful moments category, Joe Wilson yelling “YOU LIE!” like a spoiled toddler trumps Pelosi’s speech shredding.

A reminder that in 1975 Nixon had resigned in disgrace months earlier, inflation was rampant (Ford distributed W(hip) I(nflation) N(ow) buttons, like wearing a button would do any good). Nixon had instituted wage and price controls. There was a decade long oil shortage causing lines at gas stations, talk of rationing, and a 55 mph speed limit on the interstate system to conserve gas.

I guess through the feces colored glasses through which Fitsnews views the world things are worse now.

As a reminder, four years ago, we couldn’t find toilet paper on the shelves, the GOP was talking about how senior citizens should “sacrifice” themselves for their grandchildren’s future, and we had a president who was trying to change the trajectory of a hurricane with a sharpie marker and thought we should drink bleach and shove a light up our butt to get rid of covid germs. Not to mention his fondness and fanboying over dictators. Flash Forward 4 years to today, and the US has the lowest inflation rate in the World, unemployment rates are at a 50-year low, and the stock market is at historic highs. I gotta say my 401K is looking pretty sweet these days. Real Americans are tired of the GOP’s braying elephants and circus side show “politicians”. The GOP controlled House has done absolutely nothing of note in the last two years they’ve had control except obstruct. We could have had a border deal but the GOP walked away for no other reason than they desperately need this as an election talking point. Why would we want to go back to some of the worst days in America? Better question–why would we want to move forward with the GOP knowing they don’t know how to actually govern? At least Biden could deliver a coherent speech and that’s better than Trump’s incoherent ranting, his endless refrains of why life is so unfair to him as an alleged billionaire (who can’t pay his legal bills), and his dementia-addled belief that Obama is still president. In summary, worship at that orange idol all you want, he will not win for the GOP in November.

Well while you had time to preview the speech, you don’t want to talk about it afterward, and I think we all know why. It was a hell of a speech, and the MAGA response could not have been more pathetic. Biden made the speech without missing a beat, even responding to GOP hecklers in real-time, with cogent appropriate comebacks. Fortunately for sites like this one, Faux News and the like, most of their viewers or readers did not watch, otherwise they would need to abandon the demented sleepy Joe line. Trump could never have made that speech, without devolving into incoherent mumbling.

And could the GOP response have been worse? A rich white lady who makes almost 200k a year plus generous benefits and contributions, with a rich husband who makes, even more, working for a Washington lobbying firm and kids who all attend private school, sits in a kitchen she probably never uses and whimpers about how average Americans like her and her family make their decisions around a kitchen table and they are afraid their kids will not have a shot at the American dream. Not one time did she mention what the GOP was going to do for the country or what it had done. Because she had nothing. Just fear and hand wringing. But Biden is out of touch. Really?
