That is my impression of Senator Schumer’s and Representative Pelosi’s chosen visual presentation. Page down here to find picture. Stern look as if to say “Junior you have gone far enough and it is time to talk sense.” I find it 100% consistent with the Democrats-as-the-adults-in-the-room thinking.
The weaknesses are (1) we citizens of the USA are not children to be guided in our daily lives (2) as such, when such a high-talking attitude as presented by Schumer and Pelosi is rejected, they have nowhere to go. I would have thought, as experienced politicians, that they would know better.
