President Biden needs to level with the American people about the fact that his “infrastructure” package is a $2.25 trillion liberal wish list with only about 25% being spent on traditional infrastructure like roads, bridges, tunnels and rails. Be honest with us Mr. President. https://t.co/du32oGCAsA

Candidate Biden suggested he would be a moderate, transitional president. Nearly three months in, President Biden has blazed a different path, aiming to be a transformational president – using his narrow majority to ram through the biggest expansion of government since LBJ. https://t.co/XgkLse7IRu

fun fact: the GOP controls Fla. Gov., Fla House. Fla. Senate. Fla is currently facing a $3B budget shortfall. NYT couldn't find space for that in profile of DeSantis political "competence"

Honestly what is the point of having @GovChristie on @ThisWeekABC to holler "liar" because he doesn't like the definition of infrastructure? Is this promoting intelligent discussion?

Gov. Ron DeSantis' his brand of libertarianism — or “competent Trumpism,” as one ally called it — is on the ascent, and he has positioned himself as the head of “the free state of Florida” and as a political heir to former President Donald J. Trump. https://t.co/AAlkr0XBN5

yknow what else ranked low in terms of voter ‘priorities’ in January poll? “dealing with immigration” that’s hasn’t stopped CNN from running wall-to-wall immigration coverage for the last month

Trump's rant to the RNC on Saturday underlines how dangerous he remains without a real reckoning. He's the leader of a domestic terrorism movement. And that's not my take—it's the consensus of a bipartisan group of national security experts https://t.co/9NZBV17G5J @juliettekayyem

hands down, my favorite music guilty pleasure is listening to old broadcasts of Casey Kasem's "American Top 40" on the weekends, via SiriusXM '70s channel. currently airing, the countdown from the week April 8, 1972. (MJ's "Rockin' Robbin" coming in at No. 5!)
