* “We’re true partners, the three of us.”–President Joe Biden in reference to Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the North American Leaders Summit in Mexico City.
* Sturm und drang alert: “Now that Democrats no longer have one-party rule in Washington, oversight and accountability are coming.” That was Republican Rep. James Comer, chairman of the House Oversight Committee. In other words, they’ll be accountable for putting Hunter Biden back in the news cycle.
* Given the GOP’s control of the House, grass roots commitments, efforts at voter suppression and hardcore Trump fealty, Dems can hardly afford unforced errors. But here we are: President Joe Biden’s White House document security, Hunter Biden’s lap top and coattail-riding in Ukraine, Andrew Gillum’s frought character, Hillary Clinton’s emails and connection to Anthony the Weinermobile. Rick Scott still probably appreciates Alex Sink’s phone call during their gubernatorial debate. Dems have enough issues with party unity, a less-than-stellar bench and continued GOP efforts to make voting more problematic. Unforced errors should be unacceptable.
* “I think Cuba is weaponizing immigration to get Biden to cede on sanctions.”–Orlando Gutierrez, head of the Cuban Resistance Assembly in Miami.
