GOP says Ron Klain pulling Biden strings

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Omaha Steve (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

By Alexander Bolton and Amie Parnes - 03/01/21 06:00 AM EST


Republicans are attacking White House chief of staff Ron Klain as “the guy behind the curtain” and “Prime Minister Klain” as they try to push back on someone they see as formidable opponent in the battle over President Biden’s agenda.
...................
...........................

Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.), one of Biden’s closest Senate allies, said Biden made it clear at this month’s meeting with GOP lawmakers that he’s the ultimate decisionmaker.


“Joe Biden is president of the United States and Ron is a very capable, very able chief of staff who has known and worked closely with President Biden for decades,” he said. “It’s important to respect the fact that it was President Biden who said ‘I want to meet in person with 10 Republican senators’ right off the bat.' "

“What was scheduled for an hour went for two, and several of my Republican colleagues said [Biden] knew their numbers better than they did,” he said. “I disagree with and I’m going to keep pushing back on this narrative that somehow Joe Biden isn’t really the president, isn’t really in charge and other people are.”

1. They can spin it as they wish, but it's pretty obvious who's in charge.

Sheesh.

2. Ron has been with Biden

For a long time. He knows how to get things done. He worked on the last virus. He is one effective worker. GOP will hate him.

13. It's because they fear Joe's popularity right now. In time, they will work hard on Ron (and Joe) and

later train their guns pretty much solely on the President. Just watch.........

10. It is how they "President."

Trump had a few stupid vapid-itutudes of his very own he pushed. However, much of his administration crapshoot was from special interests, donors, wackos who "seemed to know what they were talking about," or nut jobs with undo influence (the late Rush Limp wad).
It was like this with Reagan and Baby Bush, too. Figurehead doofuses catering to the funders or the loudest nuts in the room, or trying to fulfill the pipe dream of "Conservatism." Conservatism is really just base reptilian instincts most activated by fear.

Trump was not smart enough to pull some of the stuff he did.

38. You really hit the mail on that one!

This did not start with Trump. The hate, the dirty tricks, the corruption goes all the way back to Nixon. We could even go back to Hoover but none of us are alive who witnessed that.

Joe McCarthy, Roy Cohn, Reagan was nothing but a facade for the dirty work behind the scenes.

I read yesterday how many billions of tax payer dollars went to Afghanistan to but autos, other things that lay and disintegrated . No one used them. We have all heard of the shrink wrapped millions shipped to Iraq. Never to be seen again.

Trump just brought the grift to the surface.

I suspect it scares the devil out of them. Me I sleep a bit better at night. Still not well, but it's getting there. So much for Joe to do and to undo. I'm glad he has a great staff from Ron Klain on down. He both needs them and deserves them. So do we.

29. I guess he thinks this is an actual something, that has a value in actual reality?

Am I missing something? ..or is the "right" bereft of any value, and thus must make issues where none exist, in order to keep their non-info base in a frothy ignorant angry state. I'm thinking there's a connection between anger and the motivation to vote. The "right" uses triggers, dog whistles, and now apparently train whistles, to motivate their base with fear and bigotry bias confirmation, while not offering any solutions to any of todays' problems or issues whatsoever.
Completely un-democratic, they crave power for power's sake, just for themselves, and fuck you, that's why.They bandy about the term "socialism" as a boogie-man. Yet I've never once heard any one of them actually define "socialism" except as a false interpretation, and a knee-jerk intentional association with the totalitarian regimes the U.S.S.R., with the kicker being that the Hitler wannabe, orange-face-makeup festooned monster that they worship, being an incompetent errand boy for the former head of said country's intelligence agency.

What interesting times we live in, and I mean that in the sense of the ancient Chinese curse.
