Dems are getting ready to drop Biden like a hot potato as a crushing Republican midterm wave looks more and more inevitable
· · Jun 11, 2022 ·

It's never easy being the President of the United States. From start to finish it's just a hard job. But few people in living memory have had as hard a go at it as President Joseph R. Biden, who's just really struggling right now:

As the challenges facing the nation mount and fatigued base voters show low enthusiasm, Democrats in union meetings, the back rooms of Capitol Hill and party gatherings from coast to coast are quietly worrying about Mr. Biden's leadership, his age and his capability to take the fight to former President Donald J. Trump a second time.

Interviews with nearly 50 Democratic officials, from county leaders to members of Congress, as well as with disappointed voters who backed Mr. Biden in 2020, reveal a party alarmed about Republicans' rising strength and extraordinarily pessimistic about an immediate path forward.

It''s hard to watch.

I mean look, yes, the Democrats elected an obviously past-his-prime and arguably declining elderly man to one of the most demanding jobs on the planet, and yes, Joe Biden's two primary fronts to the American people consist of either incompetence or naked contempt of Americans themselves, and YES it looks like he's blundering his party into one of the most comprehensive drubbings in American electoral history.

But in their defense, Democrats are finally realizing all of this, albeit just a few years too late:

To nearly all the Democrats interviewed, the president's age — 79 now, 82 by the time the winner of the 2024 election is inaugurated — is a deep concern about his political viability. They have watched as a commander in chief who built a reputation for gaffes has repeatedly rattled global diplomacy with unexpected remarks that were later walked back by his White House staff, and as he has sat for fewer interviews than any of his recent predecessors.

"The presidency is a monstrously taxing job and the stark reality is the president would be closer to 90 than 80 at the end of a second term, and that would be a major issue," said David Axelrod, the chief strategist for Barack Obama's two winning presidential campaigns.

But you know who's not having a bad day about all of this? That's right, you know who:

Can't wait to see what November 9 looks like!
