EDITORIAL:         A Crescendo of Political Blaming

President Biden faces Putin’s war in Ukraine, a declining pandemic, expanding inflation, unsustainable Federal debt and continuing deficits with a work week constricted by weekends in Delaware and apparently challenged cognition. He and his Democrats are politicians, so of course it is all Trump’s fault. And that of Republicans generally, of course though they were more stuck with Trump than his choosers. That is politics.

                Putin’s war was started by Putin. The pandemic may be connected to Federal research contracts, the inflation reflects financial mismanagement by Congress and the Federal Reserve and the reckless spending indicts Congress and several Presidents including Trump and Biden. That is truth.

The arriving but undisclosed general financial failure is the cumulative result of all of those above, together with several decades of their predecessors. That too is truth.

And again resurrecting P.T. Barnum, it is so because there is a sucker (who votes) born every minute.
