Democrats frustrated with Biden's ineffective leadership, management
According to one member of Congress, Biden is described as “Rudderless, aimless and hopeless."
With the Democrats' already-growing dissatisfaction with Biden aside, according to a CNN report on Wednesday, members of the party are getting even more frustrated with how Biden is responding to the challenges that America is facing, including inflation and the recent Supreme Court ruling on abortion rights.
In the eyes of those complaining, dozens of Democrats believe that Biden and his administration lack effective management to quickly respond to new challenges and demands that the country faces everyday, according to the report.
None of his administration's recent actions, whether it was his announcement of a historic release of oil from the nation's strategic petroleum reserve or invocation of the Defense Production Act to address baby formula shortages, have solved the problems, the report said.
“Rudderless, aimless and hopeless,” said one member of Congress, according to CNN.
When it comes to abortion, Biden aides are still debating over new actions in response to the Supreme Court ruling, even though the draft decision was leaked six weeks before, the report said.
Biden also has a bad habit of scolding his subordinates when he is unhappy with how an issue is being handled - and this is the main contributor to recent staff departures, as narrated by sources familiar with the matter.
In conclusion, Democrats are worried that Biden's indecisiveness will incapacitate their chances in the midterm elections in the fall, fuelling sentiment that Biden will not be able to run for reelection in 2024, adding to the narrative that he is not fit for the presidency.
Democrats say 'No' to Biden running for 2024
Whispers among Democrat party members are becoming increasingly audible, that Joe Biden, in the coming 2024 elections, should not be running.
The New York Times wrote that Democrats are becoming increasingly frustrated with Biden's futile abilities to advance the most important items on his agenda in his presidential term.
With declining approval rates, one which suggests that the majority of answers believe that Biden is not mentally fit to run the country, the NYT in its article suggests that Democrats in union meetings, Capitol Hill's back rooms, and party gatherings nationwide are all questioning Biden's leadership capabilities and his age, in addition to his ability to win over Trump in 2024.
“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.
The Times came down to this conclusion after interviewing 50 Democrat officials, from county leaders to members of Congress, in addition to disappointed base voters who supported Biden in 2020. Democrats are worried about Republicans' rising strengths and have expressed themselves to be extraordinarily pessimistic about the future.
“To say our country was on the right track would flagrantly depart from reality,” said Steve Simeonidis, a Democratic National Committee member from Miami. He said that Biden “should announce his intent not to seek re-election in ’24 right after the midterms.”
However, most Democrats are resultant, even shy to point out Biden's incompetencies. “I’m not allowed to have feelings right now,” said Jasmine Crockett, a Texas state representative.
The failures to deal with the US' domestic issues have left Democrats struggling to explain bad situations.
