China’s growing threat, power should push Congress to drop political divide

Not since the early post-World War II years, has bipartisanship in Congress been so strategically vital. This is especially true when it comes to foreign policy, and the deepening U.S. competition with China.

A busy street in China.

It would be easy to dismiss President Joe Biden’s hopes for a return of bipartisanship as naive when one looks at the GOP record since he took office.

Most GOP legislators still refuse to denounce their cult leader’s infamous Big Lie that the 2020 election was stolen, a lie he keeps promoting. They showed no serious interest in compromise on the critical COVID-19 relief bill, rightly Biden’s first priority. They are trying to curb voting rights in states across the country.

So you might think Biden’s push for bipartisanship is an irrelevance in this viciously partisan era. You would be dead wrong.
