When the ship goes down, it is everyone for themselves.
We are starting to see that happen with Joe Biden and moderate Democrats in the House.
The latest to bail on Biden is Rep. Susan Wild (D-PA), who hit Biden pretty hard on the economy and the problems at the border.
Moderates in the party have a big decision to make right now.
Do they hang tough with Biden and support a president polling at 38 percent, or do they start to look out for themselves?
Wild has clearly made her decision.
With mid-term elections a little more than a year away, she is rolling the dice that Biden will never be able to recover in time to help her.
So, she is starting to distance herself.
Wild stated, “I will be very honest with you and tell you I am a little bit disappointed.
“I know that the President assigned responsibility for the border crisis to the Vice President.
“I’m a little bit disappointed I haven’t seen much in the way of results.”
Wild also went after the narrative on how the massive spending package will be paid for that the Democrats want to use reconciliation to push through the Senate.
She stated, “I’m waiting to hear how we make all of this happen at no cost.”
I know House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) is over in Rome playing with the Pope, but she better be listening.
Pelosi has a razor-thin margin in the House, only able to lose a handful of votes, and by Wild’s comments, it seems as though she will be hesitant to vote “yes” on the bill.
If she feels that way, you better believe the other dozen and a half moderates in the House are leaning the same way.
That is probably especially true since Pelosi has sided with the smaller Squad, assuming moderates will just fall in line.
Wild was not done, either.
She also hit the administration on the handling of Afghanistan, stating, “In order to move forward, our country will need to receive answers and accountability regarding the cascading failures that led us to this catastrophic moment, and I look forward to using my platform on the House Foreign Affairs Committee to secure answers from the Biden Administration about what went wrong.
“Our troops deserve nothing less than a complete and unvarnished account of the truth.”
Remember what I said about Republicans just sitting back and allowing this implosion to take place?
Well, the first charge just went off and now the entire building is about to collapse.
