I’ve noted that President Joe Biden steers his administration using his rearview mirror. Whatever President Donald Trump did, he’ll do the opposite. He talks about the future but seems to spend most of his time looking behind him rather than ahead.

You might assume this is a good idea, an instinct for self- preservation, because the president is an old-school Democrat heading a new-school socialist revolution. And such revolutions have a strong track record of displacing their leaders ruthlessly. Biden doesn’t want to find himself stumbling out of the White House one day crying, “Et tu, Kamala?”

But his backward glances aren’t the furtive and alarmed type that keep a weather eye on impending danger. Rather, they are focused and sustained, as though the president was reading a map. He uses the past as an inverted guide about what to do next. He wants, where possible, to create a carbon copy of the policies of his good friend Barack Obama — see Iran; sucking up to — but even more than that, he is determined that whatever Trump did, he’ll do the opposite.

Lend an ear, and you can hear Biden mumble, “Trump cut taxes big time, so I must raise them as never before. He slashed red tape, so I’d better tangle business up in that stuff again. He wanted ‘energy dominance,’ so I’m going to kill fossil fuels. The orange man’s signature policy was to stem illegal immigration, so I’ll encourage it — maybe I can get to two million illegal immigrants in my first year, a big-time achievement. Trump investigated the origins of the Wuhan flu, so I’m going to shut that down; uh-oh, the evidence is too strong, I’m going to have to restart that line of inquiry. Trump took us out of the Paris accords, so I’m rejoining. The same goes for the World Health Organization.” And so on and so on.

Biden calls for wealthy to pay 'fair share' because 'trickle-down' has failed

A conversation with Douglas Holtz-Eakin of the American Action Forum Biden is betting that since he ran as the not-Trump candidate, he must reverse what Trump did. But this is a problem because although America wanted to get rid of Trump — the crude, bullying, often brutish man — it liked many of his policies. That’s why it gave Republicans more seats in the House in the last election and would have allowed the GOP to keep its Senate majority if Trump hadn’t narcissistically turned the Georgia runoffs into a protest vote about alleged voter fraud.

The country likes lower taxes, unshackled businesses, cheaper gasoline, and less reliance on overseas pariahs for energy. It likes border security and legal, rather than illegal, immigration. It likes law and order. It wants the truth about the pandemic’s origins. And it knows the WHO is in the pocket of our enemy, China. Biden’s policies on all of these and many other issues undermine the nation he leads. He wants to do the opposite of Make America Great Again, which was not only Trump’s slogan but also was Ronald Reagan’s before him. Our new president has his own MAGA idea: Make America Goofy Again.

Joe Biden has his MAGA: Make America Goofy Again

The Biden revolution sputters before it even gets started.

t’s finally dawned on President Joe Biden that he barely controls the House and the Senate.

His remarks on Tuesday taking a swipe at Senators Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona (although not by name) were notable less for how they publicly aired an intraparty dispute, than for their utter banality.

“I hear all the folks on TV saying, 'Why doesn’t Biden get this done?'” he said, referring to himself in the third person in classic Washington fashion. “Well, because Biden only has a majority of effectively four votes in the House and a tie in the Senate, with two members of the Senate who vote more with my Republican friends.” Of course, he’s completely right (except for the part about Manchin and Sinema voting with Republicans—they are reliable Democratic votes). Not only is it true that Biden has narrow majorities, this is likely to be a defining feature of his presidency. Unforeseen events always take a hand, but if you had to guess now, it seems likely that one of the headlines at the end of the Biden years will be, “The president had vaulting ambitions, frustrated by razor-thin (and perhaps temporary) legislative majorities.”

Somehow, this was apparently passed over or brushed aside at Biden’s session with liberal historians at the White House that focused on how he could be a transformative leader in the mold of FDR or LBJ.

It didn’t figure in the spate of commentary around the time of the passage of the Covid-relief bill that Biden was indeed on track to be the next FDR.

It should have driven as much attention to what Biden can’t do, as what he can do, or he wants to do, but the wish-casting among Democrats and some journalists was too strong to acknowledge the cold reality.
