A little but premature, but not at all surprising.
Former ABC News anchorman Peter Jennings compared Americans to “a nation of two-year olds” for voting for Republicans during the midterms.
“Some thoughts on those angry voters. Ask parents of any two-year-old and they can tell you about those temper tantrums: the stomping feet, the rolling eyes, the screaming,” Jennings whined. “Imagine a nation full of uncontrolled two-year-old rage. The voters had a temper tantrum last week.”
The actual tantrum was being thrown by Jennings and the media.
Since then midterm elections won by Republicans are some variation on a tantrum while those won by Democrats are the outcry of a people who have had enough.
You can guess which one the 2022 midterms will be.
A sour and angry America poised to punish Dems this fall – Politico
Not just angry, but sour. Angry might be justifiable, even worth celebrating. But now Americans are sour. They just don’t appreciate Biden. They’re ungrateful.
This is a hint of a media narrative which will blame Americans for not appreciating how much Biden has done for them. Or they’ll just fall back on the familiar old “whitelash”.
