House Democrats Meeting About Biden: Angst, Not Answers

What can be done about Joe Biden? is the refrain running through the Democrats and the media – which, for once, are not saying the same thing.

As Biden (and his campaign team who writes these letters) so aptly stated yesterday, the primaries are done, the tickets are purchased, and all that happens now is getting on the roller coaster for that last ride. House Democrats weren’t convinced of that, and held a meeting of the caucus this morning, now that everyone is back from vacation, to try and close ranks as they have been ordered to do.

Remember that so far, it has been House Democrats who have been the ones calling on Joe Biden to step aside. They have to stand for election every two years, so there is no time where they AREN’T running for office, even in “safe” districts. Some Democrats in the Senate have the luxury of getting to sit this out because they won’t be up for election for another two or four years – well past Old Joe’s sell-by date – and the voters won’t be able to take their frustration out on their elections.

Not House Democrats. They have to answer to the voters RIGHT NOW. And the press is piling on, because they are trying to cover their own asses. It’s fair to say that House Democrats aren’t exactly used to these ambush interview tactics being used against them in this way.

And because the dam has broken in the media, we are now being treated to a lot of “what we saw” stories in the press about how Joe Biden has been deteriorating over the course of his presidency. The latest is from the Wall Street Journal (which, to their credit, was one of the few outlets willing to point out that Biden was “slipping”) and it details how Grandpa has to get his sleep – even on foreign trips.

German officials, aware of Biden’s fatigue at night, sought to accommodate the president by planning a June 2022 event with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in the early evening.

The informal event, a soiree at the Alpine resort Schloss Elmau during the Group of Seven summit, was arranged as a confidential meeting on Ukraine in a relaxed setting. Biden didn’t show, surprising the chancellor and his aides, officials said. Instead, Secretary of State Antony Blinken arrived and announced that Biden had to go to bed, according to two people who were there.

Oh, but we were told that Biden was so “vigorous” in early 2023, and Jill Biden said he had such a taxing schedule that even 30 year olds can’t keep up! And now that the truth is seeping out, we get stories about how the old man had to skip events for bedtime. Such vigor, much wow. What utter bullshit, and the media has realized this far too late. Even Jen “Circle Back” Psaki is insanely claiming that she had NO IDEA Joe Biden had gotten THIS bad!

Someone throw a red card at that woman. They all knew. They just lost their plausible deniability after the debate. Now they’re pretending that the greatest hoax ever has been pulled on them.

Which leaves elected Democrats in a huge pickle. Today’s caucus meeting was supposed to be a “rally ’round the flag/come to Jesus” moment for the House Democrats, because they truly are out of time to make a change. It’s Biden-Harris or chaos – and no one is happy.

The full post reads:

INSIDE THE ROOM — The House Democratic Caucus meeting about President Joe Biden’s political standing is starting to empty out.

One House Democrat supportive of Biden told me it “felt like a funeral.”

There is definitely no consensus on Biden. Lots of talk about how difficult the situation is for Dems.

Rep. Jahana Hayes (D-Conn.) said that putting Harris atop the ticket would be setting her up for failure.

Rep. Mark Takano (D-Calif.) said he saw a poll recently that had Biden losing in his district. Biden won his district with 62% of the vote last time.

However, leadership is taking a tone of solidarity. Mostly because there’s no other options left.

When you watch the above video of Rep. Clyburn, you realize just how bad things have gotten. All he can say, or is willing to say, is “we’re ridin’ with Biden” on repeat and nothing else. That is hardly a full-throated defense of the man he pretty much ensured won the Democratic nomination in 2020. It’s the old “if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all” defense.

House Democrats might be “ridin’ with Biden,” but they should have taken Grandpa’s car keys away a long time ago. Now they are stuck in a clown car with a senile old man at the wheel, who needs large printed pictures in order to find where he’s supposed to go. And if that clown car goes off the proverbial cliff, well…

Sit back and enjoy the show, Republicans. Do not say one word. Joe Biden isn’t going to get younger between now and November, and Democrats have to live with that.

    Isn’t “angst” an Egyptian religious symbol? That cross with the yarn loop at the top?
    It goes with De Nial as that river in Egypt.

    Thinking Thelma and Louise, but – in honor of Biden’s senility – as they’re going over Slow Joe says “Where we’re going, we don’t need roads! Or is that wings?” /off cliff/ “I like wings – some good spicy ones are nice before my ice cream.”

    And rather than worry about winning elections, worry about who’s running the country, cause it ain’t China Joe*.
