OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.


Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has declared the Joe Biden from 2020 who became president “dead.”

He appeared on the ABC show “This Week” on Sunday and hammered Biden for not being able to get his party together to pass its spending bills.

“It’s the death of 2020 Joe Biden,” the former governor said. “When he went to the Hill, 2020 Joe Biden is now officially dead and buried. The guy who ran against the progressives, ran against Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, ran to be a uniter in this country, ran saying he was going to force compromise. And he went up to Capitol Hill and he capitulated to the progressives, the liberals in his party.”

“And why should we be surprised?” he said. “He couldn’t stand up to the Taliban. How could we expect him to stand up to AOC?”

“That’s a partisan take to be sure,” the host of the show, Jonathan Karl, opined.

“No, no, no!” Christie hit back. “Hold on a second? Did he stand up to the Taliban? Why is that partisan? He hasn’t stood up to anyone except for the people in his own party who nominated him!”

“Donald Trump was inviting the Taliban to Camp David,” Democrat Donna Brazile said. “You sometimes bleed in a fight. But we’re fighting for principles. These are principles, bedrock principles that Democrats believe that we help people, that we take them out of harm’s way, that we provide them with education and jobs.”

“Donald Trump’s not in the White House anymore and Joe Biden is kind of in the White House,” Christie smacked back.

Christie is not the only one to blame Democrat leaders for not getting the progressives on board with passing the infrastructure bill currently being debated in Congress.

Moderate Democrat Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema is furious with her party’s leadership in the wake of its failure to pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill.

The senator issued a statement on Saturday in which she accused her party leadership of making “conflicting promises that could not all be kept.”

“The failure of the U.S. House to hold a vote on the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is inexcusable, and deeply disappointing for communities across our country,” she said in a statement on Twitter.

“Denying Americans millions of good-paying jobs, safer roads, cleaner water, more reliable electricity, and better broadband only hurts everyday families,” she said.

“Congress was designed as a place where representatives of Americans with valid and diverse views find compromise and common ground,” the senator said.

“What Americans have seen instead is an ineffective stunt to gain leverage over a separate proposal,” she said.

The senator fumed at the promises that could not be kept and the betrayal of trust of the ongoing negotiations.

“Good-faith negotiations, however, require trust. Over the course of this year, Democratic leaders have made conflicting promises that could not all be kept — and have, at times, pretended that differences of opinion within our party did not exist, even when those disagreements were repeatedly made clear directly and publicly.

“Canceling the infrastructure vote further erodes that trust. More importantly, it betrays the trust the American people have placed in their elected leaders and denies our country crucial investments to expand economic opportunities,” she said.

Pelosi, who has postponed the vote on the bills more than one time in the past week, believes they will now vote on the bills by Halloween.

“It’s about time!  There is an October 31st Surface Transportation Authorization deadline, after last night’s passage of a critical 30-day extension.  We must pass BIF well before then – the sooner the better, to get the jobs out there,” she said.
