It seems that the cat is out of the bag at this point.
The announcement that Joe Biden will likely seek re-election in 2024 came as part of a recent press release from the White House. During a press conference, a reporter asked Karine Jean-Pierre what Biden’s plans were regarding a possible run for reelection, and Jean-Pierre responded as follows:
“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.”
Jean-Pierre had previously boasted about Biden’s ‘historic’ job growth before a reporter took the wind out of her sails, “Didn’t it also contribute to historic inflation?”
Jean-Pierre fell all over herself before settling on 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.”
It gets me thinking how much more damage he is capable of doing to this country given the current state of affair.
However, take into consideration the fact that anyone who challenges him will have a greater likelihood of emerging triumphant in 2024. Because of this, Democrats are emphatic that he should not even attempt to run for office again. Therefore, when it comes down to it, would it really be the worst thing for him to run again?
