Watching the first 100 days of the Biden administration reminds one of how we seem to swing from one extreme to another in politics. With the Biden administration, we see one of the most competent administrations following one of the most incompetent administrations--the Trump administration. After having an administration that regularly appointed persons with no background for the jobs they were appointed to, the Biden administration has appointed very competent persons to hold those positions. Remember Ben Carson, a surgeon, being appointed to be HUD Secretary because he grew up in public housing? With majorities in both houses of Congress, the Trump administration had almost no legislative victories of any significance. Biden has accomplished one of the biggest legislative victories in the COVID Relief package with the narrowest of political majorities.
This reminds one of the swings such as the oldest president, Eisenhower, followed by the youngest elected president in Kennedy. We saw the generational change again moving from George H.W. Bush to Bill Clinton. The corrupt Nixon administration followed by the "I will never tell a lie" administration of Jimmy Carter. The Carter administration was tagged as the "malaise administration" that was followed the "morning in America" optimistic Reagan administration.
If the Biden administration can continue with retaining the image of a competent administration I can't wait to see what type of candidate the Republicans can come up with in a few years. We can apparently write off Matt Gaetz from that possibility but the Republicans have a whole bunch of other strange possibilities.
