How do Democrats dump Biden and Kamala?

Sinema gave a Let's Go Brandon speech on the Senate floor on Thursday just before Biden's arrival at the Capitol for a private lunch with Senate Dems to rally support for federalizing elections.

Yes, she took jabs at Republicans too. But jaw-jaw means nothing. How she will vote does. And she will vote against her party's president and his agenda.

Politico said, "Sinema is having Joe Biden for lunch," attributing the words to an anonymous third party.

And she will pay no penalty. Neither Jeff Flake nor John McCain paid for gumming up the works for their party's president 4 years ago. All 3 senators represented Arizona when they went rogue.

Democrats and Biden are in trouble because cheaters never prosper. Democrats may have gotten 81 million ballots for Biden through ballot harvesting in 2020 but he did not have 81 million supporters.

He pays for that now. 

William Jacobson responded to a tweet that said, "Trump lowest approval in 4 years was 34%. Biden at 33% in his first year. Amazing."

Jacobson's take was amazing: "Biden has no base. He served a purpose and that is it. Same with Harris."

Oh he has a base. It is called the media.

But the mainstream media has the survival instincts of cockroaches. The Wall Street Journal gave Peggy Noonan permission to sting Biden.

She wrote, "It is startling when two speeches within 24 hours, neither much heralded in advance—the second wouldn’t even have been given without the first—leave you knowing you have witnessed a seminal moment in the history of an administration, but it happened this week. The president’s Tuesday speech in Atlanta, on voting rights, was a disaster for him. By the end of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s answering speech on Wednesday you knew some new break point had occurred, that President Biden might have thought he was just crooning to part of his base but the repercussions were greater than that; he was breaking in some new way with others—and didn’t know it. It is poor political practice when you fail to guess the effects of your actions. He meant to mollify an important constituency but instead he filled his opponents with honest indignation and, I suspect, encouraged in that fractured group some new unity."

Voting Rights is dog-whistle white guilt to federalize elections. The bill would make legal the things Democrats did to win in 2020 that the courts and the media deny they did.

Noonan wrote, "The speech itself was aggressive, intemperate, not only offensive but meant to offend. It seemed prepared by people who think there is only the Democratic Party in America, that’s it, everyone else is an outsider who can be disparaged."

In other words, he delivered the boiler-plate Democrat argument in the 21st century: you stink.

But Biden has been talking shit for as long as I can remember. In 2012, he said to black people Republicans will put you in chains. He kicked comity to the curb long before Donald Trump came along.

She ended her piece, "When national Democrats talk to the country they always seem to be talking to themselves. They are of the left, as is their constituency, which wins the popular vote in presidential elections; the mainstream media through which they send their messages is of the left; the academics, historians and professionals they consult are of the left. They get in the habit of talking to themselves, in their language, in a single, looped conversation. They have no idea how they sound to the non-left, so they have no idea when they are damaging themselves. But this week in Georgia Mr. Biden damaged himself. And strengthened, and may even have taken a step in unifying, the non-Democrats who are among their countrymen, and who are in fact the majority of them."

Majority is the problem. Biden acts as if Democrats have a majority in Congress. They barely have one in the House, but the Senate is split 50/50. The things he wants to do require a supermajority. Big things always do. 

The Civil Rights Act of 1964 required 67 votes. LBJ needed 23 of the 33 Republican senators to vote to end the filibuster by 23 Dixiecrats. He made a minor change and Everett Dirksen delivered 27 votes. 

That is the power of the filibuster: It forces a compromise.

Biden opposes compromising. He acts as if he is Obama with 60 votes in the Senate. Biden does not have that.

Democrats have the worst of all worlds. They have a reckless, incompetent president who just abandoned Afghanistan one day in August on a whim, and who fought covid by alienating half the nation with his vax mandates.

They have the appearance of control of Congress, but they don't control Congress.

The likelihood of a Republican Congress a year from now leaves Democrats with few options. Manchin and Sinema do not look like they are budging.

As a lifelong Cleveland Indians fan, I know what losing looks like. in the 35 seasons from 1960 to 1993 inclusive, the Indians had but 6 winning seasons.

Since you cannot fire the players, you have to fire the manager.

But firing Biden leaves you with President Kamala. No, she must go first, which would allow Democrats to replace her with a president of Obama's choosing -- Jamaal Bowman? Kwanza Hall? -- which would make Biden expendable.

Shades of Gerald Ford, right?

That is worth a roll of the dice by Democrats because Ford came close to winning the 1976 race. If he had ballot harvesting, we never would have heard from Jimmy Carter again.

Otherwise, one and done.

  3. Interesting that the consensus has come around to the view of last year of yours-truly :-) - that giggles will be defenestrated before sniffy is.

    If whoever is pulling the strings behind that vapid duo has had enough, they will elevate their preferred person by filling the vp slot first (easier to do) - then after a pause, defenestrate sniffy (though how they will get past doc jill on this, one has to wonder).

    Figuring that shrillary's resurfacing late last year was her angling for the nod; she seems to have disappeared back into the woodwork, so I guess that the puppetmasters told her to forget about it.

    BTW, "ballot harvesting" is illegal in most places. And what they did in 2020 wasn't ballot harvesting, but flat out fake, printed-up-for-the-occasion ballots. If the only way to push back on that is to print up more ballots than they do, we're in very, very deep trouble.

    4. z, that's a core part of the problem - the left/donks have been continually adding in new ways to bend the results. Since at least 2000, they have engaged in increasingly-aggressive (and increasingly-dubious) GOTV efforts. They sprung "ballot harvesting" in California in 2018 to steal a bunch of seats (GOP did its own ballot harvesting in 2020 and took them back). They moved past the gray area in 2020 - and at some point it's not a gray-area technique but flat-out fraud (and the left clearly breached that line in 2020). If the only way to "do the same thing" is also to run printing presses for ballots, then we're in very, very deep trouble.

    9. I still think Hillary's the one to watch for replacement Veep. Still has some fans, has connections, competent staff, and is at heart still an Alinsky-ite Commie.

      Obama still hates her, but she's as evil as he is and is far more vicious. Plus if he allows her to be Veep, she will automatically take care of the Biden problem, with no extra effort from Obama. He is lazy, after all.

    11. I don't see Harris as resigning. She kinda gives off that rabbit boiler vibe to me.
      So that takes us to impeachment and I imagine every single republican would vote no, just to see the democrats try to soldier on with Biden/Harris or justify nominating anybody but Biden/anybody but Harris in 2024.

    2. Agree that obozo never thought much of Biden. But I think the plan was to control him more. obozo has lost some control - it wasn't planned, it just happened. Now I suspect obozo and his control freak group is kind of in a panic since the players he wants aren't obvious to anyone. obozo does better when he strongarms the players - like in Chicago for Senator. If there's dirt to pull up on either of the vp or p, obozo will select which dirt will work. And it probably will.

  7. Why does everyone always ignore this fact: Voting is controlled by each state!! It says so in the Constitution, yet NO ONE ever mentions this!!Beijing Biden and the dems do this sort of thing constantly,yet no one ever points out they are in direct conflict of our founding fathers!!! Allowing the Federal govt control of national elections spits right in the face of America!! Why the silence on this??

  10. Ward Connerly @tobeequal

    Something about which I am very knowledgeable is the Jim Crow era. I was born in Louisiana in 1939 and suffered through 25 years of my life with the indignities of Jim Crow. It is offensive and grossly perverse to equate opposition to a partisan bill that would reshape our
    2/ election process with Jim Crow. I oppose “ballot harvesting” and I support rigorous voter identification measures such as photos. These are not racist beliefs and it is shameful that an American president would characterize the debate in such a manner.

      If they want reparations, the DNC should be the ones to write the checks. They are the cause of 80% of our troubles -the other 20% is due to RINOS and the MSM.

  16. In 1944, it was obvious that FDR would not finish his 4th term, and that Henry Wallace could not be allowed to succeed him. So, the senior people in the Democratic party went to him and insisted that he pick a different running mate for the 1944 election. That turned out to be Harry Truman. You have to wonder if something like that is at least being quietly discussed, perhaps urgently since there are real issues with Biden finishing this term.

  17. Rush used to say; how disconnected Obamas policies were from the outcomes. He felt he could do no wrong. I used to think the plan was to plant Michelle in the VP; and ride her up to big office.

    I'm not sure Obama wants the blame to land on him or Michelle. My hunch is he stabs Hillary in the back; one more time.

  18. If they get rid of Biden it has to happen soon, before the midterms, although Jill Biden will attempt to fight it. Whoever replaces Biden will still plunge the democrats further left with their inane policies on climate change, open borders, crime, and foreign policy of appeasement. The dems are causing us to lose the cold war, in addition to the other wars, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan. Our MSM, academia, and entertainment industry plus corporations are now dominated by the establishment left. In their lust for power and erosion of the rule of law, we should remember: "One party to rule them all, one party to find them, one party to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them.

  20. You really have to wonder. Joe Biden* is not calling the shots and Harris is an incompetent lunatic everyone knows it. So, seeing the state of the Dem party today the question is, if he was put there to be a figure head with someone else calling the plays, who screwed up? Obama if he is the play caller? Who? Regardless of who it is, we should all realize that the person or group who made the selection of Biden* and Harris have to be the dumbest person or people on the planet because right now, they are really up the proverbial creek with no way out and the midterms looming ever closer. Karma can be hard when you're stupid.
