Join Jim and Greg as they welcome the surprising analysis from NBC’s Chuck Todd that Pres. Biden had a major credibility problem on many different issues. They also smile at reports that Democrats fear they won’t be able to pass the $3.5 trillion monstrosity in its entirety or maybe at all, and they point out just one truly absurd provision in the bill that would impact all of us. And they highlight White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki for her ridiculous contention that illegal immigrants are not planning to stay long in the United States.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss how Brett Kavanaugh’s passionate defense of his character and record and Sen. Lindsey Graham’s denunciation of Senate Democrats galvanized most Republicans around the Kavanaugh nomination.  They also slam the mainstream media for continuing it’s appallingly biased coverage of Kavanaugh, this time horrified that the judge was angry for being accused of being a gang rapist and that his wife and daughters are the recipients of death threats.  And they roll their eyes as Democratic Sen.
