Well, President Biden is apparently going to run again in 2024 and the White House just made it official. During a press briefing a reporter asked if Biden planned to run and here was Jean-Pierre’s response:
“He has — first of all, let’s — let’s reset for a second. I cannot talk about elections. I cannot be a political analyst from here or — you know, or the midterms or anything like that, or including 2024.
The President, as you know, has been asked that question many times, and he has answered it. His answer has been pretty simple, which is: Yes, he’s running for reelection. I’m — I can’t say more than that.”
Earlier Jean-Pierre was touting that Biden has had ‘historic’ job growth. A reporter stole the wind out of her sails by asking, “didn’t it also lead to historic inflation?”
Jean-Pierre, ever the weasel, stumbled all over herself before finally settling in to blame Trump for Biden’s failures:
“That is — that is — that is not — that is not how we’re seeing the American Rescue Plan.”
She continued, “Look, the President came in — we have to remember what the President walked into. When he walked into this administration, the economy was at a standstill. Schools were closed. Businesses were shutting down. Twenty million people were on unemployment insurance benefits. That is what he walked into. And he took action. He got the American Rescue Plan done. Democrats — only Democrats voted for it. And it helped turn the economy around, including getting more than 200 million people vaccinated, having a comprehensive vaccination plan that — that was not in place when he walked into the administration.”
But before you lose your lunch let’s take a moment—Would another Biden run be the worst thing? He has the absolute worst approval waiting. His economic plan, much like everything else, has run America into another crisis. Biden’s allowed for avoidable shortages, immigration nightmares, and high crime, and he’s crippled families at the pump.
Virtually anyone who ran against him could and should win. That’s why Democrats don’t want him to even try. So again, would it be a bad thing? Let me know what you think in the comments below.
