Top Dems Back Bumbling Biden to Avoid Crazy Kamala

AMAC Exclusive – By Andrew Abbott

A new consensus is emerging within the Democrat Party establishment: Yes, Joe Biden is too old to run for president again in 2024. But the party will back him anyway, because the alternative of a Kamala Harris-led ticket is worse.

That’s the upshot of a bombshell story from Politico reporter Jonathan Martin late last week detailing the private thoughts of many senior Democrat operatives, who nearly all spoke on the condition of anonymity. One senator said, “Few Democrats in [Congress] want Biden to run again,” while a governor “mused about just how little campaigning Biden would be able to do.”

A few brave Democrats have openly stated that Biden is simply too old to run. Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota has said that “if [Biden] were 15-20 years younger it would be a no-brainer to nominate him, but considering his age it’s absurd we’re not promoting competition but trying to extinguish it.”

Fellow Minnesota Democrat Angie Craig has made similar comments. Some voices in the mainstream media have also made that case, with The New York Times releasing an opinion article last July declaring “Joe Biden is too old to be president again,” and The Washington Post running an analysis piece putting the spotlight on Biden’s age and mental fitness.

But the hard truth that many Democrat power brokers have come to face is that Kamala Harris, Biden’s most obvious heir apparent, gives them an even worse chance of retaining the White House in 2024.

Harris’s tenure as vice president has been a disaster. Early in his presidency, Biden tasked her with solving the border crisis. This was met with back-to-back failures. Not only was the border not secured, but a series of interview gaffes tarnished her public image. Most notably, in an interview with Lester Holt, she dismissed criticism for not visiting the border by stating, “And I haven’t been to Europe.” The gaffe drew such criticism and condemnation that the vice president withdrew from almost all major interviews for nearly a year. Harris, it seems, is the only politician capable of doing worse in front of a microphone than her boss.

Democrats are in a bind, however. As a woman of Asian and Jamaican descent, any attempt to deny Harris the nomination would likely infuriate large parts of a Democrat base obsessed with identity politics. As vice president, Harris is also the natural choice for the nomination if Biden were to choose not to run.

This combination of factors virtually mandates that Democrats must back Harris if they abandon Biden. “Democrats have seen what happens when anyone in their party openly criticizes Harris,” Martin writes. “They’re accused by activists and social media critics of showing, at best, racial and gender insensitivity. This doesn’t stifle concerns about her prospects, of course, it just pushes them further underground or into the shadows of background quotes.”

Another House Democrat said, “The Democrats who will need to speak out on her are from the Congressional Black Caucus, no white member is going to do it.”  

Re-nominating Biden, then, is perhaps more about avoiding an intraparty civil war than it is about giving Democrats the best chance to win in 2024. The obvious conclusion that most Democrats seem to have reached but few have the courage to say out loud is that the party is best off running someone not named Joe Biden or Kamala Harris in the next presidential election.

But running Biden again next year will only prolong the inevitable: whether in 2024 or 2028, Kamala Harris will expect what she feels she is owed – a clear path to the nomination.

Democrats find themselves stuck at an impasse of their own creation. If poll numbers and both Biden’s and Harris’s woeful record are any indication, however, it won’t matter who is at the top of the ticket in 2024, because both the president and vice president will find themselves voted out of office.

Bumbling Biden was too old to run the first time and now it’s him again or Krazy Kamala or what, Hapless Hillary? But it really doesn’t matter because I don’t see where the Republican Party has done anything to stop them from “stealing” the next Presidential Election again! Sad!

An impasse of their own (Democrats) creation is it in a nutshell. But since they have seemed to find the know-how and means to cheat elections, does it even matter? They buy votes, send out ballots to anyone, citizen or not, dead or alive in the Democratic enclaves and the results are counted over long periods of time to ensure that if they are “falling short” they can suddenly discover uncounted ballots. Many ballots from conservative areas go missing or the machines just stop working. And the mainstream press is MIA. They couldn’t be bothered to investigate anything that doesn’t benefit the liberals.

I believe the democratic nominee for President in 2024 will be a leader of a drug cartel since they now control both our borders thanks to Biden’s border policies and emphasis on Ukraine’s sovereignty rather than that of the United States. He is depleting the U.S.’s military to support Ukraine while Russia, China, and Iran wait for the moment to take over our country.

Neither Biden nor Harris has accomplished ANYTHNG positive for our country. The things Biden bragged about during SOTU speech were all NEGATIVE to normal, patriotic Americans. IDK of one positive action by ANY government department in the last 2 years!

Is it a coincidence that Rep. Dean Phillips of Minnesota used “no-brainer” in a sentence about Beijing Joe and 2024? Not “easy”, “no sweat”, “piece of cake”, etc! The first thing that comes to his mind is “no-brainer”.

Don’t count the hyena out just yet. I always thought that Biden was rock solid impeachment insurance for Obama as no one would want this fool in charge. But obviously I was wrong if he got elected. The hyena might surprise everyone too.

A good way to celebrate President’s day would have Biden and Harris taken out of the White House in handcuffs then placed on trial for TREASON! No need to impeach– they stole the election and in my book, he is not the President. Even though Washington’s false teeth caused him pain, I think this would make him smile.

Expecting to be the nominee “Because it is my turn…” has been the standard for both parties at various moments. It finally worked for Biden probably because he promised Warren and Sanders he would sign the work produced by socialist operating the administration.

Harris can sign just as well as Biden. Who on earth could be vice president under her and not over shaddow her?????

We have descended into darkness that we’re incapable of finding qualified candidates to run on the Democratic ticket other than Biden and/or Harris. Decisions like this shouldn’t be based on anything but qualifications. Ancestry is not a basis for election. Both have shown that they’re not up for the task. Surely the Democrats have other options. If not, what does that say about the party. Nothing good in my book!

harris is a joke (not that the stumblebum isn’t). She was ousted early from the dim primaries in 2020 because she’s not only a stoner, a prostitute and an idiot, but she’s intensely disliked. That didn’t matter in ’20, thanks to a soft coup. Sadly, it’s unlikely to matter in ’24 either. Unless voting laws are changed, I seriously doubt that an “R” will be elected POTUS. The dims could run anybody and it wouldn’t matter…just look at the two total disasters that “won” in ’20…that’s all the proof you need that quality candidates don’t matter…”vote” counting does.

I get the feeling it doesn’t matter. The demo/socialists will always cheat, lie and do anything else it takes to get re-elected. It also seems that no one will do one thing about it. No Republican made any concerted effort to do anything bout the stolen election of 2020 and so we are stuck with Loopy Joe and Cackling Kamala. The other problem is that the entire demo/socialist party is run by the one-world supporters in the WEF. There is no viable candidate. One is as bad as the other.

I doesn’t matter who they put up for the ticket, they know they have already won ala the AZ
gubernatorial election. The republican leadership and even conservative networks like newsmax and fox (oh, how I miss OANN) never talked about election fraud after the mid-term election. The subject has become hands-off.

It doesn’t matter who Democrats run as long as they can obtain the presidency. The Democrat Party is now a puppet party controlled by Socialist billionaires and Communist Chinese. They just need to get whoever they run to be put in position. They will do so using any method, fair, unfair, honest, dishonest, it doesn’t matter to them anymore.

It doesn’t matter who is on the ticket the democrats will win again in 2024. They have there fraude machines in place. This is all propaganda to brainwash the people to feel sorry for their candidates. It shouldn’t matter who the candidates are for the democrats, their governing should be the reason they are voted out. In name of equity is why we have these people as the leaders of America. Look at what they have done to America and what they are still doing.

The Democrat leaders are so much into critical race theory and identity politics that many of them are supporting an openly racist president who proudly hires a totally unqualified vice president and completely incompetent cabinet members simply by their race and nontraditional sexual orientations. As a result, we have the most dysfunctional and fragmented administration in the entire history of American politics. Harris has no expertise in anything administratively and her stories are even dumber than those of Joe Biden. In my humble opinion, Harris is no worse than empty shirt, race divider Joe Biden; however, most Democrats seem to think that Biden is the lesser of two evils. Biden has done such a horrible and disgusting job in destroying our great country that the valid reasons for supporting Biden over Harris are very unclear, but the Democrats are more comfortable with Biden, just because they are used to his brand of lying and incompetence. If the Republicans use their resources wisely and don’t shoot themselves, the situation is looking better and better for the appearance of a Republican president next term. Our country sorely needs a leader who is both competent and humble, patriotic and constitutional. Some of the top military brass are already warning that we are on the road to a major war with Communist China by 2025 — scary, very scary.

Blah, blah, blah, more talk that means nothing…the anti-Republic, one world totalitarian hell desiring commie/globalist Demmunists know that whomever runs is owned by them, and will march to their tune. If fraudulent elections aren’t stopped, any Demmunist that runs will probably win, and of course that expletive will be owned by ChiComs/Globalist elitists; a new puppet taking the place of an old puppet. Who that puppet will be doesn’t matter; agenda remains the same.

Biden polls at or above 40%, harris in the twenties. All he needs is a manufactured foreign crisis that he, the renowned statesman resolves and zing, hes in till he dies in office. Then we go from a dementia case to a woman whose speech patterns are reminiscent of cheech and chong skits . Anyone recall them from the seventies? Not saying she’s a stoner, just that she sounds like one.

The Democrat Party is trying to avoid a situation in which the ship goes down with the captain. Their only clean way out of their Biden/Harris dilemma is to run the same ticket and lose the election in 2024. That gets rid of both Biden and Harris (the co-captains) and preserves the ship (the Democrat Party) to fight again another day. Any attempt to give the co-captains the heave-ho from within will destroy the “ship”. There is little chance that Harris could come back from an electoral defeat in 2024 to become the nominee in 2028 or beyond.

Remember Dan Quayle? Neither does anyone else.

It isn’t Biden’s age that disqualifies hi, it’s his mental illness. The man doesn’t have a clue what’s happening until one of his handlers tells him. Harris is worthless. Recently she attended a global security conference. She gave a speech emphasizing how concerned she is about the security of Ukraine, but she doesn’t give a damn about the security of the United States’ southern border. Biden appointed her his border Czar shortly after the election and she hasn’t done squat.

Another story based on a Politico article. Yawn. Seriously, if anyone here is relying on the idiotic reasoning being expressed by one of the biggest propaganda outlets for the Democrat Party, we’re in serious trouble. Politico is one of the biggest, left-leaning news outlets in the country.

Both Biden and Harris were selected by the Democrat Party in 2020, because they checked off enough identity politics boxes that the mind-numb Democrat voters would follow along. All it took was the stamp of approval from Rep. Jim Clyburn for Biden to go from 5th place to 1st place to secure the Democrat nomination. Then the Democrat Party picked Harris to be Joe’s running mate, because she met the only criteria the Democrats cared about. After that, campaigning in 2020 wasn’t an issue for the Biden / Harris ticket, because the Democrat Party and the administrative state inside the Washington, D.C. beltway had everything lined up to ensure the 6 key swing states would go Biden’s way.

Fast forward t0 2024. If Dementia Joe is allowed to run for re-election (a lot can happen between now and then from an inside the beltway perspective), neither the Democrat Party nor the MSM is particularly worried. After all, they just have to rerun the same game plan they used in 2020 to ensure Biden “won” (was given the necessary number of ballots over the course of a few days) to install him yet again in the White House. If the American people continue to tolerate the level of manipulation to place Biden in the White House for another 4 years, then they deserve to be reduced to serfs serving their masters.

Your article suggests that no Democrat is able to make a decision that is very important to the Country first and our allies next.
Clearly someone in that Party must step up, take the lead and tell Kamala that she is out, no ifs ands or buts and tell Biden that he is out, too.
There is no other way for the good of the USA.
Will any Democrat show some backbone and leadership for all of us?
Will a bright light, other than Pelosi, Schiff, Schumer, Nadler, AOC, Omar and all the others on that side we never want to hear from ever again, step forward and do what must be done?
Please.

Communist harris HIDES her prosecution records while running for VP, creates a Bail Out of Jail Bond for Criminal TERRORIST antifa and blm during their RIOTS of DESTROYING cities and ATTACKING people in 2019 and 2020 which AUTOMATICALLY DISQUALIFIED her for running as VP, and COMPLETE FAILURE as appointed czar to SECURE BORDERS after being VP
ILLEGALLY and UNCONSTITUTIONALLY, and the list goes on of her COMPLETE FAILURES. Not to mention the DUMB comments she always makes.
So why would the democrats run from her when they cry everybody racist when in fact the democrats are the racist because they won’t back her.
Just shows how 2 faced and stupid the democrats are and how they lie to everybody.
They keep picking LOSERS and Blame everybody else for their FAILURES.
One other thing. WHY is DICTATOR Beijing biden HIDING in Ukraine instead of being in Ohio HELPING the people from that Train Derailment with TOXIC Chemicals making citizens ill and WAITING 2 WEEKS before sending FEMA to help? (Waiting on Polls)
The people in Ohio sure as hell wouldn’t have had to wait 2 weeks with PRESIDENT TRUMP to send help. He would send help Immediately.
Not wait 2 weeks for Polls like DICTATOR Beijing biden does then run and HIDE in Ukraine because political fallout is too HOT for his COMPLETE INCOMPETENCE.
Just like Communist harris COMPLETE INCOMPETENCE.
Both of them are 2 peas in a pod.
