Imagine being the United States president and not having the proud and public support for another run at the White House from the members of your own party.
That's exactly what's happening to President Joe Biden, which is a direct reflection of his failed policies, crippling number of American crises, and embarrassingly low polling numbers. It's such a bad situation for the president that he can even muster any optimism from from of his strongest allies.
Take House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-SC), for example. According to The Hill, Clyburn, like most of the rest of the Dem Party, refuses to answer whether or not he believes Biden should run in 2024 until after the 2022 midterms.
While left-leaning outlets will try their best to spin the problem, everyone knows it's because Democrats are waiting to see how badly they're beaten on Nov. 8. If it's absolutely atrocious, which it likely will be, odds are good that the gloves are coming off, and treating Biden like a confused, sweet grandfather figure will cease, immediately.
When pressed on whether he'd support Biden, Clyburn stumbled and bumbled with the same talking points heard by other Dems attempting to distance themselves from the failed Biden administration.
"I have no idea. Until this election is over, I'm not going to focus on '24," Clyburn said.
Pelosi is yet another Democrat who suddenly pretends that they wouldn't dare speak about an election so far away. "I'm not going into politics about whether the president should run or not," she recently told reporters.
Clyburn recently embarrassed his entire party by outing them in an MSNBC interview in which he admitted that they all knew their asinine spending legislation would result in an absolutely crippling U.S. economy.
Biden: Inflation isn’t our fault. Clyburn: Yes it is. https://t.co/8PcDtegDuH
