Where’s the GOP in Biden mosaic?


Someone was missing at President Biden’s first Cabinet meeting last week. Remember his campaign promise to reunite America and appoint the most diverse cabinet and administra­tion in history, representi­ng the gorgeous American mosaic?

Now, into the fourth month of his administra­tion, he has yet to appoint any Republican­s.

There are several thousand Cabinet, sub-Cabinet, agency administra­tors and others who will be appointed by the White House to serve at the pleasure of the president.

Republican­s continue to represent a significan­t portion of America. Why has Mr. Biden failed to appoint any? Mr. Biden has failed in following up on this public promise. Even former President Obama appointed

Ray LaHood, a Republican from Illinois, as his secretary of Transporta­tion.

Actions speak louder than words. Mr. Biden’s call to bring America together appears to just be campaign rhetoric. Mr. Biden practices ‘To the victor go the spoils’ management. Quid pro quo is alive and well in his White House.
