The Biden presidency has been a complete disaster for his own party.
And it’s only getting worse.
Kamala Harris caused an enormous problem that Democrats can’t fix.
It’s becoming increasingly clear to every American that President Joe Biden is struggling to carry out the duties of president at his age.
Despite the fact Biden in December 2019 said “I don’t have plans on one term,” he’s going to reach his 80th birthday next year and it’s unlikely that he’ll even attempt to run for president again.
This puts Vice President Kamala Harris in a prime position to be the nominee in 2021; however, many Democrats are worried that she isn’t a strong enough candidate to beat former President Donald Trump or any other Republican candidate.
“Many Democrats, including some current senior administration officials, are concerned she could not defeat whomever the Republican Party puts up — even if it were Donald Trump,” Axios reported.
“One Democratic operative tells Axios’ Alayna Treene that most Democrats aren’t saying, ‘Oh, no, our heir apparent is f***ing up, what are we gonna do?’ It’s more that people think, ‘Oh, she’s f***ing up, maybe she shouldn’t be the heir apparent.’ Some Democrats close to the White House are increasingly concerned about Harris’s handling of high-profile issues and political tone-deafness, and question her ability to maintain the coalition that Biden rode to the White House, sources tell Axios’ Hans Nichols.”
Harris was appointed by Biden to deal with the crisis at the southern border but she avoided even visiting the border for 100 days after the appointment.
Only when Trump announced that he was visiting the border did Harris manage to personally go, though she avoided travelling to the hotspot of illegal immigration — instead she went to El Paso, which is hundreds of miles away.
Politico also reported that many former and current staff of the vice president are unsatisfied with the way she runs her office.
According to one person the office was a “s***show.”
“The handling of the border visit was the latest chaotic moment for a staff that’s quickly become mired in them. Harris’ team is experiencing low morale, porous lines of communication, and diminished trust among aides and senior officials. Much of the frustration internally is directed at Tina Flournoy, Harris’ chief of staff, a veteran of Democratic politics who began working for her earlier this year,” Politico reported.
“In interviews, 22 current and former vice presidential aides, administration officials, and associates of Harris and Biden described a tense and at times dour office atmosphere. Aides and allies said Flournoy, in an apparent effort to protect Harris, has instead created an insular environment where ideas are ignored or met with harsh dismissals and decisions are dragged out. Often, they said, she refuses to take responsibility for delicate issues and blames staffers for the negative results that ensue,” the liberal political website wrote.
