Democratic strategist Paul Begala on Monday reacted to Arndrea Waters King, the daughter-in-law of Martin Luther King, Jr. saying President Joe Biden has put more effort in getting infrastructure legislation passed than voting rights legislation.
King told Politico, “What we’ve seen with President Biden is what happens when he puts his full force and power behind an issue like infrastructure. What we want to see is that same power and passion being put behind voting rights.”
Begala praised Biden’s efforts and said he does not think the Democrat leadership has been the problem. Instead, he argued the Democrats “have bad followers.”
CNN’s Poppy Harlow asked Begala, “Do you think that’s fair criticism? Did President Biden put more effort into getting infrastructure passed, for example?”
“Well, he got infrastructure passed, and that’s a good thing because success can breed success,” Begala replied. “He is putting the full force of the presidency behind it. I think the problem for the Democrats right now is not that they have bad leaders. They have bad followers, OK?”
“Those of us who want to save voting rights — we need to get to work. I do think Biden is putting everything behind this, but he needs better followers. He needs all of us in the game as well,” he concluded.
Getting a bill passed with the word “infrastructure” on it and actually building infrastructure are two very different things.
This imposture Biden has done nothing for our infrastructure beyond executing a globalist plan written years ago.
Trump moved up their time-table to release Covid and use this crisis to consolidate power.
We that still support democratic processes and freedom stand in the way of Klaus Schwab, Biden, and their haplessly indoctrinated minority.

Well, he’s right. Democrats DO have bad followers. They are stupid, they won’t ask tough questions, they don’t demand performance, they are satisfied with failure (as long as someone is blamed) and have no problem with corruption committed by Democrats.
We could have had infrastructure without all the wasteful pork under Trump, but Democrats blocked it. Their followers cheered it on. The Senate passed a pork-laden infrastructure bill, but Pelosi, under orders from the Squad, held it hostage for the ruinous “Bolshevik Back Better” bill. Their followers cheered it on. Democrat followers don’t seem to have the capacity for thought, just obeying.
They voted for this idiot now were stuck with him the fact that he stole the whole election with help from Globalists the UN Russia and China as well

Sounds like the name of a pole dancer, just sayin…
@TrumpWon just diving by and seeing the marquee, right? lol CNN is pretty hard up for talent since the arrests.
The way people are switching party the only Democrats left will be CNN watchers, they shouldnt bash them by calling them bad followers.
