Congressman John. Steven McGroarty on Understanding Impatient Citizens

 President Joe Biden has been in office for some 33 days and is doing a magnificent job. Fascists fulminate.  

Meanwhile, a few misguided progressives say he's not done enough. Some remind me of this quote: "One of the countless drawbacks of being in Congress is that I am compelled to receive impertinent letters from a jackass like you in which you say I promised to have the Sierra Madre mountains reforested and I have been in Congress two months and haven't done it. Will you please take two running jumps and go to hell."

— Letter from John McGroarty to a constituent in 1934. Quoted by President John F. Kennedy in Profiles in Courage, 1956.[7].
