Some of the House lawmakers seem to have NO class and idea how the American Government works…..
They come across as sloppy….
They ARE firing at Biden….
This while their presumed ‘leader’ is firing at a guy who is first in line to claim the nomination if Trump ain’t gonna make it….
Donald Trump is NOT a ‘lock’ no matter what the media says…..
It was just one moment in the loud bickering that at times engulfed Biden’s address Tuesday night, a back-and-forth that framed what is becoming a notable dynamic as the 2024 campaign heats up: Biden and the raucous House Republicans are in many ways running against each other, each seeing the other as a useful foil to be called out and ridiculed at every turn.
Biden, with no presumptive Republican opponent likely to emerge for months, appears happy to run against the outspoken House Republican conference, which he portrays as controlled by extremist figures. And the newly powerful Republican lawmakers seem to relish depicting Biden as an elderly president who is out of his depth.
Biden and a set of vocal House Republicans seemed satisfied with the verbal brawling. White House officials let it be known that the exchanges prompted applause and high-fives among Biden aides, some of whom had gathered around televisions in the office of White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. And Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) — who during the speech cupped her hands around her mouth and screamed “Liar!” — recorded a video just minutes after leaving the chamber bragging about her outburst.
Biden continued the back-and-forth Wednesday at a stop in Wisconsin. “Marjorie Taylor Greene and others stood up and said, ‘Liar, liar,’” Biden recounted, happy to elevate the unorthodox congresswoman as the face of the GOP. “Reminds me of, ‘Liar, liar, house on fire.’”
The moment also reflected two very different messages. Biden, who is widely expected to be his party’s 2024 presidential nominee, spent much of his speech, and his appearance at a union hall Wednesday, making appeals to blue-collar voters and advocating ideas like fixing bridges and lowering drug costs. Republicans, ahead of what is shaping up as a lively 2024 primary, have no clear standard-bearer, and focused on blasting Biden and playing up cultural issues….
Democrats are hoping that Biden’s talk of roads and bridges will play well against the Republicans’ embrace of fire and brimstone.
“Biden gave a speech for a general-market audience, and Huckabee Sanders gave a response for the Fox News audience,” said Geoffrey Garin, a Democratic pollster at Hart Research. “Biden was upbeat and a happy warrior, and Huckabee Sanders was angry and harsh. I think on that score voters much prefer the Biden model.”
He added, “Republicans are going to be fighting with each other in a battle for the base. They are going to continue to be dark and extreme, while Biden is able to speak to the broad electorate.”….
The shouting Tuesday also reflected how little control House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (Calif.) has over his conference. Before the address, he instructed members to behave courteously, saying all eyes would be on them. His leadership team told House Republicans to remember that cameras would be on and hot microphones nearby….
