Grow a Pair

This is astounding in its lack of historical understanding and self-centeredness:

Let's face it this has been the toughest year and a half since any year and a half since the 1930s.

That was the president, at a Boxer fundraiser. Seriously, WTF.

As Halper concludes about this episode:

The presidency is a job that you really have to want in order to get. The last thing people want to hear from a president is even an iota of self-pity.

Yes, indeed. That struck me earlier in the year. It has been a non-stop pity party.

For God's sake, man up, Mr. President. This has been the easy part of your term, as I fear you will find out. You're the only president we have, the vultures are circling overseas as they've taken your measure, and just the words "President Biden" give me nightmares.

We need you to lead us. Whatever else I may think about you, you're all we've got. You need to get the job done.

UPDATE: Thanks Minerva, for the link. Sometimes it seems like we are being governed by undergraduate students.
