Even while on the campaign trail rumors were swirling that Biden, 78, would only serve one term if he were elected 46th President. While his victory is debatable, his age is not, and neither is his rapidly declining physical fitness.
While Biden did say in 2019, “I have no plans to be a one term president,” many did question his ability to lead amid his obvious mental deficiencies. Biden immediately became the Democrats’ puppet — appealing to the older, more moderate Democrat voters as well as loyal Obama supporters, while Kamala became their guarantee for the future.
The Democrats believed with Kamala Harris they had their ace-in-the-hole to defeat any Republican contender in the 2024 election, thus ensuring a Democrat in the White House for the next eight years at least.
However, not even one year into their administration and Kamala’s standing with the American public continues to plummet. Her role as the frontrunner to eventually replace Biden as head of the Democrat Party is faltering, with many close to the Vice President admitting that things are not going as planned.
According to recent reports and polling, Kamala’s chances of beating a Republican contender are sinking by the day. Against Former President Donald Trump, she has no chance.
One Democrat party insider close to the Vice President’s office recently revealed many high-up Party officials are saying, “Oh, she’s f***ing up, maybe she shouldn’t be the heir apparent. Maybe we should get a Plan B.”
Some Democrats close to the White House are increasingly concerned about Harris’s handling of high-profile issues and political tone-deafness, and question her ability to maintain the coalition that Biden rode to the White House reveal.
Harris has been roundly criticized for dodging the illegal immigration crisis along the US-Mexico border, even after Biden named her Border Czar and ordered her to address the situation.
For more than 100 days, Harris refused to visit the border, instead of traveling to Guatemala and Mexico last month. There, she evaded questions about when she would visit the border, telling NBC’s Lester Holt that “I haven’t been to Europe” before adding, “I don’t understand the point that you’re making.”
Finally, after Trump announced his own visit to the border, Harris traveled to El Paso — hundreds of miles from the hotspot.
Then last week, a bomb was dropped on Kamala when a report came out citing nearly two dozen current and former vice presidential aides as saying, in one person’s words, that the office was a “s***show.”
“The handling of the border visit was the latest chaotic moment for a staff that’s quickly become mired in them. Harris’ team is experiencing low morale, porous lines of communication, and diminished trust among aides and senior officials. Much of the frustration internally is directed at Tina Flournoy, Harris’ chief of staff, a veteran of Democratic politics who began working for her earlier this year,” Politico reported.
“In interviews, 22 current and former vice presidential aides, administration officials, and associates of Harris and Biden described a tense and at times dour office atmosphere.”
Often, they said, she refuses to take responsibility for delicate issues and blames staffers for the negative results that ensue,” according to the whistleblowers.
