What would Casey Stengel say about the Biden presidency?



 (My new American Thinker post)

Biden's presidency reminds me of that great Casey Stengel quote about losing:  

"Been in this game one-hundred years, but I see new ways to lose 'em I never knew existed before."

Casey was probably talking about his 1962 New York Mets, the expansion team that lost 120 games.  Nobody expected them to win and the nation's economy or national security was not at stake at the old Polo Grounds.  It was baseball, even if it was not very good baseball.

I think that many people, including me, expected Biden to do a lot better than what we are watching on a daily basis.  It's a mess when your press secretary has to say that she did not listen to your Naval Academy speech.  By the way, this is the speech in which Biden claimed having been appointed but the dates don't make sense. 

Then we read later that President Biden is frustrated about his staff correcting him all of the time. Wonder how frustrated the staff must be?

What we are watching is a presidency in collapse, even if there is nothing that the nation can do about it.  I agree with Michael Goodwin:   

Yet now we know, according to NBC, that Biden is alternately frustrated, annoyed, rattled and unhappy. The network says he is “mystified” over the poll numbers and quotes an unnamed source who says, “He’s now lower than Trump, and he’s really twisted about it.”

The overarching theme is that the president feels himself to be a victim of circumstances, friends and opponents. He believes he doesn’t get enough credit for what he views as accomplishments, Republicans don’t get enough blame for his failures and fellow Democrats don’t go on television enough to defend him. 

He sounds like a lonely man. And a very confused one. 

Biden’s no Washington rookie and you would think that somewhere in his nearly 50 years in government, he would have realized that no president has succeeded by whining and feeling sorry for himself. If you want a pity party, stay out of politics.

A mess.  It makes me wonder how many times recently Biden has turned to Jill and said:  "We  should have stayed in Delaware."

Biden has himself to blame.  He surrounded himself with a bunch of people who just wanted to delete everything with Trump's name on it.  They misunderstood the election.  There was no Biden landslide or even comfortable victory.   It was a hard-fought campaign that called for someone to heal rather divide the nation even further.

A word about June 2






We remember June 2:

"The Great Bambino":   Babe Ruth retired from baseball in 1935.   

June 2, 1941: Joe DiMaggio extended his streak to # 19 on the way to 56.

"Leave it to Beaver":    We remember Jerry Mathers who was born in Iowa on this day in 1948.   Mathers will always be "The Beaver" in "Leave it to Beaver", one of the most popular TV shows ever.  

"The streak":    Lou Gehrig took himself out of the Yankees' lineup in 1939.    It ended the consecutive game streak at 2,130 games, from 1925 to 1939!   Lou died two years later in 1941.  

"White House wedding":    President Cleveland married Frances Folsom on this day in 1886.    

Rock and roll:    We remember Charlie Watts, the wonderful drummer of The Rolling Stones.    He was born on this day in 1941 and died in 2021.

Happy # 82 Jim Maloney






We remember Jim Maloney who was born in Fresno, CA on this day in 1940.
Maloney broke with Cincinnati in 1960 and become one of the best right handers in the National League:  134 games with a 3.19 ERA.   Maloney won 89 games over a five year span, 1963-67.   
Maloney pitched a no-hitter later against the Cubs and won 20 games in 1965.  Injuries kept Maloney from pitching in the Reds’ championship teams of the 1970s.    
Maloney was elected to the Reds’ Hall of Fame.

Happy # 74 Jerry Mathers

Back in 1964, our family arrived in Wisconsin.  We learned a lot of English back then watching TV, such as "Leave it to the Beaver".

We remember Jerry Mathers who was born in Iowa on this day in 1948.

Mathers will always be "The Beaver" in "Leave it to Beaver", one of the most popular TV shows ever.   

The show had four characters that everyone could love:  Dad Ward Cleaver, Mom June Cleaver, Wally and Beaver.    

And let's not forget Eddie Haskell, who probably drove every mother crazy.

Learning English with "The Beaver"!  I can identify with that!
