The “Stop Biden” Drumbeat Begins

Media Democrats are terrified that Joe Biden is going to run for re-election, and they’re already calling on him to step aside:

What I admire most about President Biden is that in a polarized nation, he has governed from the center out, as he promised in his victory speech. With an unexpectedly steady hand, he passed some of the most important domestic legislation in recent decades. In foreign policy, he managed the delicate balance of helping Ukraine fight Russia without getting America itself into a war. In sum, he has been a successful and effective president.

But I don’t think Biden and Vice President Harris should run for reelection. It’s painful to say that, given my admiration for much of what they have accomplished. But if he and Harris campaign together in 2024, I think Biden risks undoing his greatest achievement — which was stopping Trump.

It’s really remarkable how the most popular President and biggest vote-winner in history inspires such a lack of confidence in those who are on his side. In fact, it tends to make one question if he was really that popular and if he really won all those votes in 2020.
