1 On the other hand....We are seeing Bidet revert to type and choose the 'surrender' button.  Given his natural inclination and past history, it is no wonder.

To adapt a Disraeli quote, Biden only gets pleasure when he is contemplating the surrender of an American interest.

2 We have an understanding of Biden that is good enough for all working purposes.

Going, 'Oh he is hurting us', and 'Oh, he will hurt us', all of the time, while true, can be defeatist.   Like standing there, imaging how someone will pummel you, while they pummel you.

It's not a productive mindset for a fight, or an escape. 

The opposition is very, very obsessed with thinking that the world is a place that operates neatly according to theoretical rules that they understand, and can manipulate.  This is a vulnerability.
