President Elect Biden:
We certainly understand your desire to seek compromise with the Republicans to move the country forward.
We humbly suggest that you consider President Obama’s attempt at unity as Senator Mitch McConnell vowed that no Democratic legislation would be passed and the goal was to make Obama a one term President. He failed at the second but did hold up Democratic legislation and appointments to the federal bench.
As Dr. Phil, and most psychologist, say in almost every show, “The best predictor of future behavior is past behavior.” I strongly suggest you don’t spend your political capital on compromise with the Republicans for more than a month. Think of all that the Obama/Biden administration could have achieved in the first two years if they hadn’t been wasted trying to work with the Senate.
I hate to have to tell you this, but McConnell’s obstruction is not about race; it’s about money and power. You and the Democrats are in for a battle royal. So, “…screw your courage to the sticking place, and we will not fail.”
With this warning I wish you great success and promise you my support.
