"He's Not Dropping Out"

Biden Digs In After Disastrous Debate

President Joe Biden is “not dropping out” of the 2024 race despite his party’s collective freakout over last night’s debate performance, which put his severe cognitive decline on display, raising questions about who’s actually running the country.

Of course he’s not dropping out,” campaign spokesman Seth Schuster told The Hill.

Biden echoed Schuster, saying at a post-debate waffle house stop following the debate: “No. It’s hard to debate a liar. The New York Times pointed out he lied 26 times.”

CNN confirmed the reporting, adding that Biden says he’s committed to the next debate in September.

Meanwhile, Democrats are in crisis mode, according to Bloomberg’s Jessica Karl, who highlights three articles suggesting 1) Biden should step aside, 2) Kamala Harris ‘won the debate … emerging as a better spokesperson for Biden and a possible option should Democrats seriously rethink him as the top of the ticket and move to replace him,’ and 3) Gavin Newsom is ‘ready for the Biden emergency.’

The consensus from my @opinion colleagues? Dems are in crisis mode.

As we noted earlier (via Modernity.news), Democrats are strongly urging the White House to ask Biden to step down following last night.

According to CNN’s John King, there will now be a mad last minute scramble to force Biden off the ticket.

King said there was “A deep, a wide, and a very aggressive panic in the Democratic Party, it started minutes into the debate and it continues right now.”

CNN Chief National Correspondent John King says prominent Democrats are talking about going to the White House to ask Biden to step down and/or publicly calling on him to drop out.

I wish Biden would reflect on this debate performance and then announce his decision to withdraw from the race, throwing the choice of Democratic nominee to the convention,” posted the NY Times’ Nicholas Kristof on X.

I wish Biden would reflect on this debate performance and then announce his decision to withdraw from the race, throwing the choice of Democratic nominee to the convention. Someone like @gretchenwhitmer or @SherrodBrown or @SecRaimondo could still jump in and beat Trump.

All of that may be wishful thinking as Biden clings to the Ring of Power.

Of course the democrats are freaking out, their drug cocktails are not keeping Biden coherent, Kamala was nothing more than to pander to black voters, she was never meant to be more than just a black figurehead.
Her “handling” of the border issue shows how incompetent she is
What are they gonna do, somehow run Newsome? He’s unlikeable and Trump would walk all over him in a debate

If they needed a DEI vice president you’d think they’d at least pick one with the IQ for the job as well as the ability to articulate. Newsome’s wrecked Cali, I can’t see it, perhaps as a ‘only valid second choice’ for the anything but Trump crowd. At this late stage though I doubt he’d be a winner for them.

The Dems kinda fucked themselves and may not have any choice but to run Joe
If he drops, all the donated money can only go to Kamala, she’s liked even less than Joe. So like the POS Newsome would be starting from $0
