Joe versus Donald: It’s the re-match no one wants.
On Tuesday, that – despite suggesting in 2019 that he’d be a one-term president – he’s throwing his aviators back into the ring for 2024.
And in one of the most comical buzzkills in political history, a new poll shows that a super majority of Americans think that’s an absolutely terrible idea.
70% of Americans, including 51% of , don’t want him to run, evdEN eVe NAKLiyAT according to an
Wait, it gets worse, hysterically worse.
53% of those who voted for eVdEn eVe NakliYAt Biden less than three years ago in 2020 say he shouldn’t run. And 76% of voters under 35 believe it’s time for Joe to retire.
Why?Well, it’s no huge surprise.
‘It’s all about his age and his ability to do the job,’ reported ‘Meet The Press’ host Chuck Todd, who was stunned by the poll results.
So, how does the Democratic Party justify propping up grandpa for another 4 years, if the very thought of another Biden-Harris ticket makes voters retch?
The answer is cynicism.Pure unadulterated cynicism.
Democrats know that Americans are just as disgusted with the thought of pulling the lever for Donald Trump. And in a contest between two terrible choices – they believe Joe has the edge.
Biden’s only saving grace is that he is just marginally less unpopular than Trump.
On Tuesday, Biden is expected to announce that – despite suggesting in 2019 that he’d be a one-term president – he’s throwing his aviators back in the ring for 2024.
In one of the most comical buzzkills in political history, a new poll shows that a super majority of Americans think it’s an absolutely terrible idea for Biden for run in 2024.
48% of voters have a negative impression of the president.53% say the same about the big bad orange man. And this same poll shows that 60% of Americans don’t want Trump to run for president in 2024 either.
You’d think those numbers would force the parties back to the drawing board, but no.Apparently, that’s what we get.
In fact, from his closest potential GOP primary opponent, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and DeSantis is looking seriously wobbly.
While on a foreign trip through Japan, DeSantis was confronted by a reporter over his disappointing performance in a potential match-up against The Donald.
‘I’m not a candidate, so we’ll see if and when that changes,’ he snapped, shaking like a bobble-head on speed.
And any hope of an insurgent Democratic candidate is also looking like a pipe dream.
When RFK Jr., an anti-vaxxer with self-admitted ‘lust demons,’ and Marianne Williamson, an accused rage-addict, self-help guru, are the great liberal hopes then there isn’t much hope at all.
Is this really the best we can do, America?
If it comes down to these two men – no matter who wins, we lose.We end up with a president that a majority of the country has already rejected. And it gets far, far more depressing than even that.
In January, 71% of all Americans said they believed that the country is on the wrong track in another NBC poll.
Frankly, I don’t know what the other 29% are thinking.We are on the wrong planet.
There is a visceral, growing distrust among citizens. There is declining faith in institutions and there is simmering hatred for the media.
Beyond Biden’s obvious mental decline and Trump’s obvious moral deficiencies, both men are symbolic of this corrosive malaise – this partisan fistfight that has been seething for years.
Trump cannot be disconnected from the shame of the January 6th riots.
Biden is under serious suspicions of corruption involving his family and there’s quite clear evidence that his campaign meddled in the press coverage of his dear son Hunter’s laptop from hell.
In fact, Trump may be pulling away from his closest potential GOP primary opponent, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, and DeSantis is looking seriously wobbly.
Democrats know that Americans are just as disgusted with the thought of pulling the lever for Donald Trump.And in a contest between two terrible choices – they believe Joe has the edge.
Last week, the House Judiciary and Intelligence committees released transcripts of interviews with former Obama deputy CIA Director, Mike Morell.He organized that infamous statement from 51 former intelligence officials, who promoted the lie that Russia was behind Hunter’s filthy hard drive.
The letter claimed that the exposure of Hunter’s digital dirty laundry on the evden eVe nAKliYAt of an election had, ‘all the classic earmarks of a Russian information operation.’
Joe Biden then used the letter as support to shut down Trump during a 2020 debate.
‘Look, there are 50 former national intelligence folks who said that what he’s accusing me of is a Russian plan. If you have any concerns regarding where and the best ways to make use of Evden EVE nakLiYAT, you can contact us at our website. They have said that this has all the characteristics — four, five former heads of the CIA, both parties, say what he’s saying is a bunch of garbage,’ Biden claimed.
Of course, the laptop is real.That letter was junk.
But, why would seasoned intelligence officers make such a glaring mistake at such a critical moment?
It turns out that Morell, by his own account, was contacted by then-Biden campaign advisor, now-Secretary of State Antony Blinken, which ‘set in motion the events that led to the issuance of the public statement.’
Morell also made it very clear that he organized the note to ‘help Vice President Biden’ win the election.
It all stinks to high heaven. But I doubt it ever gets fully resolved.
The Russia, Russia, Russia mania was a dark point in American history and all the players are tainted, especially the intelligence community, which rushed to the aid of their favored candidate.Even if the mainstream media shrugs and says, ‘who cares?’ — we care, because we’re suffering.
Morell (above) also made it very clear that he organized the note to ‘help Vice President Biden’ win the election.
America stays stuck on repeat.It’s Groundhog’s Day. We’re destined to relive the worst modern election cycle over and over again. It’s a political episode of The Twilight Zone.
Oh God, will it ever end?
I hope so, but first we’re likely going to have to suffer through the indignity of these two very tired campaigns.
Biden is going to vow to ‘restore the soul of the nation — again.’
Trump is going to promise to ‘make America great again — again.’
We all deserve better but that won’t happened until we pick ourselves out of this rut and evdEN EVe NaKLiYAT demand new leadership, free of the baggage of the past.
The octogenarian class has held onto power for too long.
Barring any huge surprises tomorrow, the ship has sailed for Democrats.But Republicans still have a chance to put some new blood on the ballot.
Here’s to hoping they do – I can’t watch another re-run.
