(RoyalPatriot.com )- Failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has long been a supporter of the Democratic Party, but recently, she blasted the Biden administration and the progressive wing of the party for their actions.
During an interview with NBC that happened earlier in December, Clinton said Democrats would face many hurdles in the upcoming 2022 midterm elections. She said:
“I think that it is a time for some careful thinking about what wins elections, and not just in deep-blue districts where a Democrat and a liberal Democrat, or so-called progressive Democrat, is going to win.
“I understand why people want to argue for their priorities. That’s what they believe they were elected to do. But at the end of the day, nothing is going to get done if you don’t have a Democratic majority in the House and the Senate. And our majority comes from people who win in much more difficult districts.”
That was a pretty direct attack on many of the extreme members of her party. That wing, led by some of the members of the so-called “Squad” in the House, has been pressing forward for big spending. But, it has led to a lot of in-fighting with the more moderate wing of the party, leading to little getting done in recent months.
After those direct comments, Clinton then took a more passive-aggressive approach to the Biden administration when she said:
“Look, I’m all about having vigorous debate. I think it’s good, and it gives people a chance to be part of the process.
“But, at the end of the day, it means nothing if we don’t have a Congress that will get things done, and we don’t have a White House that we can count on to be sane and sober and stable and productive.”
During his campaign, President Joe Biden promised America that he would govern the country as a moderate who works hard to negotiate packages on a bipartisan basis. Since taking office last January, though, he has done the exact opposite.
He has seemingly given in to the progressive wing of his party, and is trying to do everything without any support from Republicans in Congress.
It’s not just Republicans that have taken notice of this big shift, though. Moderate Democrats in the Senate such as Joe Manchin from West Virginia and Krysten Sinema from Arizona have fought back and haven’t completely supported Biden’s agenda.
The latest example of this is when Manchin announced in late December that he wouldn’t support Biden’s massive social spending bill known as the Build Back Better Act. That has left Democrats with literally nothing to move forward with on the spending package, unless more changes are made.
Clinton said that she still believed Democrats had enough time to refocus both their priorities as well as their campaign messaging to win over voters in the 2022 midterm elections.
If they continue on the same path they’re on now, though, it’s very possible that Republicans will win back control of both the House and the Senate, putting a huge roadblock in place for the Biden administration.
