Though the Democrat National Committee feigned excitement about Biden’s campaign during their four-day-long convention, it’s clear to anyone outside their bubble that Biden is just not inspiring.
Colorado Democrat strategist Ted Trimpa publically stabbed Biden in the back this week by openly admitting that “Biden is probably one of the weakest Democratic candidates we have had in some time.”
Never has it been more clear that the only thing Democrats have going for them in this election is the irrational hatred of Donald Trump.
Trimpa continued to explain that Biden should announce his cabinet selections sooner rather than later to “give us all some comfort because the guy is 78 years old and you have these wonders: Is he just going to fall over?”
Not exactly the words you would expect from a fired-up Democrat operative.
Trimpa’s tacit admission that Biden is simply not up to snuff echoes comments that top Biden surrogate Terry McAuliffe made in early June about keeping Biden hidden from the public eye.
“People say all the time, ‘Oh, we got to get the vice president out of the basement,'” McAuliffe told the Norfolk City Democratic Committee at the time. “He’s fine in the basement. Two people see him a day: his two body people. That’s it. Let Trump keep doing what Trump’s doing.”
Unfortunately for Democrats, Trump is not self-destructing the way they want him to, leaving strategists in a pinch. Relying on the economic downturn created by extended lockdowns, along with racial unrest stoked by Democrat-controlled media took Biden a long way, but Trump is roaring back in the polls.
With less than three months to go until election day, Democrats have some hard decisions to make.
