What’s really weird is that Biden is trying to recreate the Obama presidency. Everybody agrees that Obama was a failure. If there’s one thing conservatives and progressives agree on, it’s that the Obama years were a total waste of time. The guy was indifferent, inept, and useless. He had no achievements even the most crazed fans can point to other than the mangled ACA. (Ta-Nehisi Coates, for example, wrote a whole book making precisely this point).
So Biden, who’s been running for president for longer than I’ve been alive, finally squeezes out a win, and what does he do? He proceeds to appoint all the same old Obama people and vaguely announcing the restoration of all the same failed Obama policies.
I’m only seeing one explanation. They’ve got nothing else. Democrats don’t have a plan, a dream, or a set of policies they want to put in place. They are content with just sitting there ineptly and indifferently while the digital oligarchy remakes the world to its liking.
I didn’t think many things could stun me but Biden’s transition team and cabinet picks did stun me. This is a bunch of inept, bumbling Obama-era losers. No new faces, nobody with any capacity to do anything. I’d think the guy would want finally to get out of Obama’s shadow and have a moment of his own.
Of course, the Left is not noticing because it’s still obsessing pathetically over Trump and some imaginary coup he’s been preparing for longer than Obama has been completely useless.
