Biden’s Presidential start reflects a decency which is so welcome after the utter dishonesty of his predecessor

What a positive opportunity seldom offered a new President!

The sniveling seedy shocking aroma left in the minds of over the 80 million people who voted for Biden must be so well understood and appreciated by Biden and all those now serving his administration.

The $1.9 trillion relief bill will pass the Senate with few alterations. And it now appears considerable progress has been achieved in his erasing the multiple adverse effects of the Trump years.

Too optimistic? Still unknown, but if Biden can continue to steer a moderate middle political course while the economy recovers that could attract a dominant majority of all Americans to vote for more of the same in 2022 and 2024.

The pandemic vaccinations should be largely accomplished by late Summer and 2022 should become a year of returning normalcy.

This suggests that the non-Trump wing of the Republican Party will be anxious to begin evolving strongly to moderation, since the news about the multi prosecutions of our 45th President will be getting huge media coverage.

I have long been predicting that Trump will be rapidly fading as the controller of the Republican Party. I noted that former Republican Governor of Ohio John Kasich expressed that same opinion on a recent Anderson Cooper CNN program.

Can’t imagine that Trump’s backing for Marjorie Taylor Greene is going to help his political future. You can read her opinion here.

A February 25th Washington Post article outlining some of those possibilities in Trump’s future: litigation aplenty.

The GOP has a real chance to rehabilitate itself, but not with the same racist reactionaries who acquiesced to Trump’s one way ticket to political oblivion.

Hopefully, looking back to its Lincolnesque roots, the Republican Party will find new faces and articulate new voices.

Or will the Democrats find the need to divide as the inevitable differing forces Biden now holds in quiescence seek more power?

Should be an interesting 4 years ahead, but in retrospect Trump’s disastrous time may have been just the wake up call America needed.

Biden’s consoling words after the power failure in Texas to the Republican Governor of Texas exemplify his promise to govern for all of us.

Here are a few stories which relate to my op ed.

Collins, a free lance writer living in Washington, DC., has spent over 40 years working for women’s reproductive health as a board member and/or officer of numerous family planning organizations including Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Guttmacher Institute, Family Health International and Ipas.
