During the final moments of his virtual speech to lawmakers on Wednesday, Zelensky switched to English for emphasis when speaking directly to Biden: "You are the leader of the nation, of your great nation. I wish you to be the leader of the world. Being the leader of the world means to be the leader of peace."

Since the start of the Russian invasion last month, Democrats and Republicans have been more united on Ukraine than any other issue in recent memory. During Biden's State of the Union address, for example, support for the war-torn country was one of the few issues that received rousing applause from both sides of the aisle.

But some Republicans have tried to cast Biden as weak in his response to the crisis and continued to do so after Zelensky's address to lawmakers in the Capitol.


The truth: Congressional Dems and GOPs have been united on Ukraine. One item of their unity has been agreement that the Roaring Bear from Delaware has been tepid in his opposition to Russia's Stalinesque oppression of the innocent in Ukraine.

My viewing of MSNBC has increased since Russian troops crossed the border primarily because DC lawmakers use friendly outlets to speak to the nation. Even though Fox's viewership is often more than double that of MSNBC, Dems avoid Fox more passionately than they advocated limitations on individual freedom during Covid.

So, to hear the Dems' thinking about Putin, Zelensky et.al., I've been watching a lot of Morning Joe. (Boy! Do I ever miss the Imus days. Alas, he's dead.)

It does amaze me how much GOPs and Dems are saying the same things about Ukraine...except for one thing.

Dems are in the position of having to deal with the issue of the performance of the "leader" (wink wink) of their party. They've developed some fancy footwork which could be called "the Ukraine shuffle," in an attempt to avoid admitting that their very own doddering old fool is, truly, "that feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap. "

The most recent WSJ poll showed that the Former 18 Wheeler Driver is just barely above water on Ukraine, 47-46, but 15 points under water overall.

Americans want to rally behind the President at times of international conflict. Both Bush bozos peaked around 90% in approval.

But, Curt and isle, you can remember how ugly it got for LBJ, Donna and po, maybe not.

Joe's living up to "...feckless dementia-ridden piece of crap" much more than fearless leader. He's Jimmy Carter, not Franklin Roosevelt.

He's been a bad President in all of his roles, but, more than anything else, he's been a pathetic Commander-in-Chief.

Zelensky's challenge to the Flatulent Fool, i.e., "I wish you to be the leader of the world," will probably, justifiedly, show up in GOP campaign ads in 022, probably in 024.

My question is, when will Dems stop dancing the Ukraine Shuffle?

Will they? Or, will they crash and burn, following Joe Biden to political oblivion?
