Kamala Harris is a Biden fall away from being in the Oval Office
NEW YORK POST
It was alarming to watch Joe Biden take a tumble Thursday at the Air Force Academy commencement.
But the really scary thought is that if he had landed head-first, Kamala Harris would be sitting in the Oval Office.
Talk about terrifying!
Naturally, the far left would be celebrating the fact of the first female president, heedless of the risks of identity trumping merit.
Meanwhile, the sensible Americans who make up a majority of the nation would be living in fear of the human word salad playing with the nuclear football and the possibility that her cackle could be the soundtrack of Armageddon.
Harris got her job because Biden was indebted to black voters and pols, such as South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, who lifted him to the 2020 nomination after he appeared headed for defeat.
When Biden let it be known he would settle the debt by picking a black woman to be his running mate, history happened.
That seems like a very long time ago and these days, with Biden health scares more frequent, the presidential nominee who hid in his basement during the COVID campaign and often appears befuddled is asking voters for a second term.
Four more years is a long time for America to remain a banana peel away from a President Harris.
In fairness, it should be said that Biden’s excuses for his frequent falls are getting better.
Hours after it happened, he blamed Thursday’s crash (inset) on a sandbag on the stage, which is better than the time when he fell going up the steps of Air Force One and aides blamed the wind.
Propping up Joe for ’24
Democrats, of course, have an additional reason to be terrified of a Biden header.
If he falls and can’t get up close to next year’s election, they are almost certainly sunk regardless of whom Republicans nominate.
That elusive red wave might finally come ashore.
Which is why Dem poohbahs would be wise to reverse course on the matter of primary debates.
Their decision to rule them out would not be unusual if Biden were a popular incumbent with a firm hold on his party.
Biden is neither of those things.
His national approval ratings have been stuck in the basement for most of his term and there are signs of growing restlessness among the faithful.
In his case, debates were banned to protect the president from talking himself into deadends, lapsing into gibberish or doing a face plant in prime time.
For the same reasons, White House aides have limited his unscripted appearances since he took office, even with a protective media, and are unlikely to change course at this point because letting Biden be Biden could be an absolute disaster.
But hiding the president is not a viable approach either when polls consistently show a majority of Dem voters don’t want him to run at all.
An AP-NORC survey found that just 37% of party respondents favor his seeking a second term.
The AP described the unflattering findings this way: “Follow-up interviews with poll respondents suggest that many believe the 80-year-old’s age is a liability, with people focused on his coughing, his gait, his gaffes and the possibility that the world’s most stressful job would be better suited for someone younger.”
When you’re a Democrat and you’ve lost the woke AP, you are in trouble.
