Biden and team scramble after his veto threat backfires

Hours after President Joe Biden boasted about his bipartisan negotiating skills on the heels of securing a compromise on a massive infrastructure bill with Republicans, the 78-year-old president uttered one little sentence in front of reporters that could kill the entire deal.

According to Fox News, after he told reporters it felt like the good ol’ days in Congress when the parties could hammer out deals, he revealed his terms and conditions for signing the $1 trillion deal, which included a “tandem” bill that includes all of the Democrat-inserted pet projects and pork that was stripped out of the main deal to appease Republicans — a comment that left his staffers scrambling to correct. 

“If this (bipartisan deal) is the only one that comes to me, I’m not signing it,” Biden said. “It’s in tandem.”

As one could imagine, Republicans issued immediate criticism for Biden’s seeming bait-and-switch tactics, as the GOP negotiators involved certainly didn’t sign on for a compromised bill just to have another bill that includes wish-list items for Democrats pass as a condition.

“Democratic leadership and @POTUS holding the historic bipartisan infrastructure agreement hostage was never discussed with us & was not part of the deal we agreed to,” tweeted Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) over the weekend, echoing similar statements from his GOP colleagues.

According to NPR, Biden and his people worked overtime over the past weekend in an attempt to allay concerns that he was holding the infrastructure deal hostage. The damage control even included Biden issuing a statement of clarification — not common for this administration.

“The bottom line is this: I gave my word to support the Infrastructure Plan, and that’s what I intend to do,” Biden’s statement read.

“I intend to pursue the passage of that plan, which Democrats and Republicans agreed to on Thursday, with vigor. It would be good for the economy, good for our country, good for our people. I fully stand behind it without reservation or hesitation,” the president added.

Biden would go on to conclude his statement by doubling down in what appeared to be an effort to make it clear that his bipartisan infrastructure would pass regardless of whether Republicans attacked the second “soft” infrastructure bill, though that’s literally the exact opposite of what he said in his original threat.

Even when Biden did not have dementia, he never was a smart man. Now you are expecting him to make sense?

Biden is a puppet to chief commie-OBAMA–both will very soon be extinguished—they need to pray for God’s forgiveness!!!

If it sounds like a veto threat, looks like a veto threat, smells like a veto threat, it is a veto threat. In answer to your comment, this is not an old repeat message.

The problem with impeaching the mental midget is that the ho is next. If she is impeached then you get the old cow Pelosi. I guess when you elect the bottom of the barrel you still get slop.

The old cow will be out to pasture because once we take back the House there will be a Republican Speaker of the House. That’s why it is important to win a bunch of seats in both the House and the Senate. We put Chuck Schumer back in the corner with his face to the wall and we elect a new Majority Leader (hopefully one we can trust). Then we IMPEACH both those two imposters!

You got that right. Biden is such a disgrace and Kamala is even worse. Biden doesn’t know which end is up and Kamala just cackles at everything because she has no answer for anything. Cackling is certainly not an answer and is so annoying. Something has to be done to get these two idiots out of our White House NOW!!!!

Biden has no idea what he is doing! Someone or a surrogate like (OBama or the Chief of Staff) are giving him notes on everything he does. The Israeli gentleman sitting by Biden yesterday was in complete shock when he noticed that Biden couldn’t even keep his notes straight.

It is time to get this retard out of office. Can we get the rest of them out by next week as well? Maybe we could pay Faucci for a diagnosis. I hear he will do anything for the right amount of ching.
