According to Jonathan Martin, a reporter for the New York Times, based on what he’s heard in Washington, D.C., Vice President Joe Biden may not be running for re-election. It’s possible that it’s because he made that decision, but it could also be due to something else…namely, that the left does not want him.
Martin voiced his astonishment that it was “unclear,” at this point, if the incumbent president will seek re-election for another four-year term.
“We have not had a first-term president in recent years where it was uncertain that they’re going to be a candidate and the next reelection and that is the case with Biden. And so that makes this all the more interesting,” Martin said.
Personally, I don’t get what’s so astounding about the idea that Joe Biden might not be the candidate running for president in 2024. His popularity is at an all-time low. He’s doing nothing except making the country worse with virtually every policy decision he makes, and he can’t even communicate effectively with the general public. Most of the time, his sentences are so incomprehensible that you have no idea what he is talking about.
During “The View”, in which Martin was there to promote his book, he told the show co-hosts that Democrats are convinced that he won’t run.
“He wants to run. He’s told people that we talked to for our book that he plans to run in 24 for reelection unless there’s a health issue intervening,” Martin told Navarro. “A lot of Democrats don’t believe that. They’re convinced he’s not gonna run.
“Based on what?” Navarro pushed back.
“Based on the fact that he’ll be 82 years old in 2024 and that they’re just skeptical that he’s gonna serve a full second term or if he wants her a full second term, which raises the question of, ‘Well, if not Biden, who?’ And that’s what shapes the Kamala Harris news here.”
“She’d only been in the Senate for a few years and doesn’t have the relationships in Washington that Biden has, and so she was not able to kind of fill the role that Biden did when he was VP on Capitol Hill. And she didn’t have a foreign policy experience either. So I think her challenge has been sort of finding her niche, and it’s created tensions with the West Wing. We have a scene in the book in which she’s feeling disrespected because she sees staffers in the West Wing when she walks into the room who are not standing for her, and they always stand for President Biden when he walks into the room. And she had her chief of staff telephone somebody in the West Wing and say, ‘She’s noticed this. Please tell the staff when the VP walks into the room they are to stand.'”
It doesn’t matter who runs at this point, because whoever the Republican candidate is, they’re going to be the one who wins (if we have a fair election). I think the liberals would even vote for President Trump once again now that they’ve seen what happens when you vote Democrat nowadays.
