Biden Knocked Over by Top Democrat Leader – The Dam Officially Breaks on the President

In the political world, the ground beneath America’s feet can be as unpredictable as a storm at sea. One moment, the ship seems steady, and the next, it’s tossed into chaos.

This week, a significant wave hit the Democratic Party, with another one of its top leaders calling for President Joe Biden to step aside.  The cracks in the Democratic facade are widening, and it’s becoming harder to ignore the internal discord.

Trivia Question: Which U.S. constitutional amendment outlines the process for presidential succession and the procedures for dealing with presidential disabilities?

After President Biden’s terrible debate performance sent shockwaves through the party, one of his own senators has stepped into the fray. The call for Biden to reconsider his run for re-election is no longer coming from just the fringes of the party or a few House representatives in swing districts.

Senator Michael Bennet of Colorado, known for his measured approach, has broken ranks. He isn’t mincing words about his concerns for the upcoming election.

From The Guardian
In an impassioned interview with CNN, Michael Bennet of Colorado said he believed Biden could no longer win November’s election and said his campaign needed to assess the decision of whether he steps aside in “moral” terms based on the importance of saving the country from the “American tragedy” of a second Trump presidency.

Bennet’s stark warning underscores the gravity of the situation. He isn’t just talking politics; he’s framing this as a moral imperative. According to Bennet, the stakes couldn’t be higher. He believes Donald Trump is on a trajectory to win the election and potentially sweep the Senate and the House with him.

Democratic Civil War?

This public call for Biden to step aside is the first from a sitting Democratic U.S. Senator. It’s a bold move that signifies deep unrest within the party. Bennet’s comments come after weeks of debate and mounting pressure from various factions within the Democratic Party. A civil war, metaphorically speaking, is brewing within the party as some leaders push for new leadership while others staunchly defend Biden.

Despite the growing dissent, President Biden remains defiant. He insists he’s fit for the challenge and capable of leading the party to victory. The White House has been in damage control mode, trying to downplay the disastrous debate performance and paint it as a mere off night. But the reality is, the American public and members of his own party are losing faith.

The pressure is mounting, and the cracks are becoming more visible. Bennet’s comments are just the latest in a series of blows to Biden’s campaign. Many within the party are now openly questioning whether Biden is the right person to take on Trump in 2024.

From The Guardian:
“This race is on a trajectory that is very worrisome if you care about the future of this country,” Bennet told CNN’s Kaitlan Collins. “Donald Trump is on track, I think, to win this election and maybe win it by a landslide, and take with him the Senate and the House. It’s not a question about politics, it’s a moral question about the future of our country.”

Bennet’s use of the term “moral question” is significant. He’s not just concerned about a political loss; he’s worried about the direction of the country. For Bennet and many other Democrats, the prospect of a second Trump presidency is seen as an existential threat to the nation.

Queue eye-rolling. We have seen the results of a Trump presidency and a Biden presidency. Which one do you think is more of an existential threat to our nation’s future?

The Fallout

The fallout from Bennet’s remarks is already being felt. The Democratic Party is scrambling to present a united front, but the facade is cracking. The debates over Biden’s competency and the future of the party are no longer whispered in back rooms—they’re playing out in public. Even Nancy Pelosi is telling Joe to reconsider.

The media, which has been somewhat protective of Biden, is now being forced to confront these issues head-on. The pressure is on, and it’s only going to increase as the election draws nearer.

With Bennet’s comments, the Democratic Party faces a critical juncture. The decision to stick with Biden or find a new candidate is fraught with peril. Changing course could lead to chaos and division, but staying the course with Biden could lead to a resounding defeat in November.

The coming days and weeks  will be crucial. The party must navigate these turbulent waters carefully if it hopes to present a viable challenge to Trump in 2024. They are quickly running out of time to dump Biden overboard, and they all know how slim their chances are if he stays at the helm of the party.

Key Takeaways:

  • Senator Michael Bennet calls for Biden to step aside, citing concerns over winning in 2024.
  • Biden remains defiant despite growing pressure within the Democratic Party.
  • The debate over Biden’s competency is becoming a central issue in the campaign.
  • The Democratic Party faces a critical decision on whether to stick with Biden or find a new candidate.
