Biden’s Worst Nightmare Comes True – Democrats Have Waukesha Massacre Problem – Kamala Is Out

1) The Biden/Harris “dream team” is turning into a nightmare. Colin Reed writes:

While every presidency endures its ups and downs, Biden always faced the intractable and unstoppable opponent of Father Time. He just turned 79 years old.  To put it charitably, he has lost a few miles an hour off his fastball. For a guy who spent the better part of his adult life delivering long-winded and verbose speeches on the floor of the U.S. Senate, his public speaking events these days are brief, unsteady and far from inspiring.

Reversing his administration’s current tailspin starts with the man at the top. In this environment, it would be a tall task for a talented politician in their prime. Whether Biden is up for the task remains an open question, to put it mildly.

If Biden has underwhelmed as president, his second-in-command has managed to fall even shorter of expectations. The latest polls show the American people viewing Vice President Kamala Harris less favorably than Biden, which is no small feat. Outside of family and paid advisers, even Democrats have a hard time envisioning Harris getting closer to the presidency than the 85 minutes she spent in charge when Biden was undergoing a medical procedure.

2) Democrats own the Waukesha massacre along with all the other crimes committed by low-bail criminals. Kimberly Straussel writes:

Here’s the common reaction to the Waukesha, Wis., murders: It’s nuts that the suspect, with his long criminal history, was free on $1,000 bail posted days before the automotive rampage.

Here’s New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, in a tweet the day after the Waukesha murders: “Today, we sent a letter . . . to NYC’s 5 District Attorneys requesting information on excessive bail in the NYC court system.” The letter was also signed by fellow New York Democrat Carolyn Maloney and Maryland’s Jamie Raskin.

That disconnect will haunt Democrats. Waukesha is one of those rare moments when the consequences of an extreme ideology are brutally exposed to a nation. It’s a big new midterm problem for Democrats, one that could prove as difficult to overcome as rising inflation, Covid surges and parental backlash against educational fads like critical race theory.

3) Joe isn’t going to run – and Kamala probably can’t either.

The White House announced that floundering Joe Biden will run for reelection in 2024. What that really means is that Biden will not run for reelection in 2024. This latest act of mendacity from the least honest White House in memory just confirms what everyone knows: Biden will be a vegetable if he even makes it to 2024.

The plan by some Democrat insiders has been to ease Biden out of the presidency and replace him with Vice President Kamala Harris. The idea was to wait until after January 20, 2023 so she could be eligible for two subsequent full terms. She would have nearly two years of acting presidential before she had to face skeptical voters in November 2024.

That plan is now untenable. Biden’s popularity in the RealClearPolitics average is just 41%. However, that is effervescent compared to Harris. A recent USA Today-Suffolk University poll put her approval rating at just 28%.
