A Subtle Catastrophe

“In the wake of the Afghanistan debacle, which could have been avoided with even a hint of Executive Branch foresight, President Biden needed a win. And how did he chase that much-needed win? He ordered some 80 million American citizens to get vaccinated. This he presented to the country in a condescending temper tantrum broadcast live for all to see. ‘Our patience is running thin,’ he said. ‘Many of us are frustrated with the nearly 80 million Americans who are still not vaccinated.’ This is not what winning looks like. This looks like yet another President declaring his way to the policy outcomes he wants by executive order, Covid style.” (09/11/21)
