In the wake of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema’s announcement earlier today that she would not support any effort to nuke the filibuster in order to pass the Democrats’ attempt to federalize elections thinly disguised as a “voting rights” bill, President Biden visited the U.S. Capitol for a meeting with Senate Dems. The scene as Biden arrived seems rather funereal:

In the wake of Sen. Sinema’s announcement and news of the Supreme Court blocking the Biden administration’s OSHA vaccine mandate, you could tell how Biden’s day was going by his outburst after the meeting:

Biden is agitated leaving meeting with Senate Dems: "The honest to god answer is, I don't know we can get this done…But I know one thing, as long as I have a breath in me…I'm going to be fighting to change the way these legislatures have moved." pic.twitter.com/SzbLGTUuag

Unhinged? Just a little.
Changing the narrative it was "voter suppression" by requiring ID. Now it's who gets to count the vote. https://t.co/wmbuBSihn0

Biden’s clearly setting the stage for a “Republicans suppressed the vote” narrative after the Democrats get shellacked in the November elections.
We are witnessing the collapse of a presidency like we’ve never seen. https://t.co/mUTwNyLRrp

Each day the collapse seems to accelerate.

Stalin might accuse Biden of plagiarism if he were still alive.
I don't even know what to say at this point. This dude has gone off the edge. https://t.co/egjwwLfRGw

No wonder Biden’s unhappy. It’s been a long week:
This is really not Biden's week:
Federal takeover of elections: DOA.
Nuking legislative filibuster: impossible.
Private employer vax mandate: struck down.
Producer Price Index: surges to all-time high.
Consumer Price Index: highest since 1982.
Public support: craters to 33%
