Conservative brief reported, when asked directly whether or not he will seek re-election next year, President Biden gives cryptic answers.
Biden was expected to announce a reelection bid during his State of the Union address earlier this month, but he hasn’t yet. David Muir of ABC Nightly News asked him if he intended to declare, and the president’s response was middling, leaving doubt in his mind.
Here is how the exchange to such a simple question went.
It’s likely that the Democratic Party hierarchy is scrambling behind the scenes to figure out a gameplan to proceed in the wake of Biden’s odd responses.
According to a breaking report Wednesday evening, Biden may not run for reelection next year. Politico reported that four people familiar with the president’s thinking say his reelection bid for 2024 has been shelved for no apparent reason.
In addition, Politico reported: “While the belief among nearly everyone in Biden’s orbit is that he’ll ultimately give the all-clear, his indecision has resulted in an awkward deep-freeze across the party — in which some potential presidential aspirants and scores of major donors are strategizing and even developing a Plan B while trying to remain respectful and publicly supportive of the 80-year-old president.”
Although a re-election campaign was previously expected, he has not made a formal decision. A source close to the president said he is “a kind of Hamlet on Delaware’s Christina River,” cautiously awaiting the specifics of his potential final campaign.
It is quite peculiar how the left remain silent when the topic of Joe Biden running for office comes up. It’s almost as if they can’t find the right words to say; like being riveted by a headlight, freezing in place and unable to move. Yet, in spite of the previous silence, Biden’s recent joke about checking with his wife before deciding whether he would run or not shows that there is probably nothing to think otherwise on the matter. She stands at the epicenter of decision-making for Biden, or else she would have let him run the first time around.
