The picture on the second page of Friday's News-Post revealing President Joe Biden's first cabinet meeting was perfect. What a contrast to the crowded menacing arrangement we regularly witnessed during the administration of our last President.

Biden's team seated in a socially-distanced arrangement, all wearing masks, told us that actions sometimes speak better than words. The square table probably encompassed the entire room. It was another example of this administration's daily efforts to set an example of their deportment which should be followed by others in meetings and social gatherings.

At this particular session, the first in the Biden administration, our president presented an extremely large and important infrastructure plan that would address the dire problems of roads, safe bridges, investments in manufacturing, etc. — and more importantly create thousands of new jobs for our population which has suffered unemployment for many long months.

What I find remarkable about this plan is that it actually exists. How often did the last administration announce pending actions which were never carried out because they were just words and we discovered that there was absolutely no "plan" as such, just promises that were not kept. Our calendar reveals that we have not, as yet, reached the hundred days of the Biden administration, but we are well aware that each day we witness changes that will improve and help all of us. It is a relief to understand that "promises made are promises kept."

Joe and Jill and the entire Biden administration and all their photo ops make me want to throw up. Unbiased news? No longer exists. It's now biased opinion. See how much you love our new administration when your cost of living and taxes increase.

Photo op...by Bidens makes you upset? How about that one where Trumpydimwit flash-banged protesters to walk to a church he never attends and hold up a bible he never read for a photo op? That's something to be pi$$ed about...not one where they're gonna take pictures anyway that actually means something and isn't a propaganda shoot like an NK dictator would do.

Leaders are, by definition, supposed to lead. What was called for in the last year was for our leaders to lead by wearing masks and socially distancing where possible. That sets an example for the rest of us. But Trump didn't like to do that so he ignored all of the advice he was given and proceeded in a way to provide him maximum ego stroking. He and many members of his staff paid by getting COVID (and then WE paid for their treatment). Leadership is not that tricky but Trump was unable to pull it off.

Oh my, the Trumpers are all having issues with mature leadership. Too funny give the clown show of the past 4 years!

The First Trump Cabinet Meeting was a round robin of groveling praise by his incompetent flunkies trying to top each other by prostrating themselves before Dear Leader. Substance vs. Subjection

Too funny given the mandatory ego boosting required by the last president. [lol][lol][lol]

I'm sure every cabinet member has been vaccinated and tested before entry,

The symbolism over substance is crushing !!

The vaccine against groveling is new and we are grateful.

Ms. Haber, I wonder if you also watch the Kardashians tv show and say to yourself "Isn't this wonderful, all these nice people. I think every American family should comport themselves is this manner."

Greg F

Haber probably watched Springer Show and loved it for it's "realism."

Another liberal viewpoint without merit and knowing the facts.
