AOC Says “No” to a Future with Biden in It
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a Democratic Socialist â and sheâs approved to admit that fact to anyone and everyone. During the 2020 presidential primaries, she was in support of her mentor, Bernie Sanders. After all, socialists looking to change the entire landscape of the United States have to stick together.
Once it was clear that Sanders was not going to win, AOC had no choice but to support Biden. Of course, she wasnât a big fan of his â he was everything she didnât want in a candidate. So, she and other liberals convinced people that Biden was the better choice over Trump simply by reminding them to vote within their party lines.
You remember their clever political slogan, donât you? Vote blue, no matter who.
Apparently, it does matter who it is moving forward, though. AOC has become extremely vocal about what the 2024 presidential election should look like. And sheâs not planning to support Joe Biden for a second term.
Weâve already seen how Biden has failed. He failed to deal with the withdrawal of Afghanistan properly, which led to the Taliban taking control. He failed to keep the border secure, which has led to tens of thousands of migrants entering the U.S. illegally. And weâve seen how his policies that are anything but âAmerica firstâ has damaged the economy.
When AOC recently appeared on CNNâs State of the Union, she was asked whether she would support Biden for the 2024 election.
âWeâll cross that bridge when we get to it.â
Well, thatâs certainly not an endorsement. She went on to explain herself. âIf the president has a vision and thatâs something weâre all willing to entertain and examine when the time comesâ¦we should endorse when we get to it. Weâll take a look at it.â
Essentially, sheâs admitting that Joe Biden has no vision â and for that, we should all be more than a little worried.
Currently, AOC is focusing on how the Democrats can win the midterms. Considering that Democrats have been losing left and right in some of the local and runoff elections, they certainly have their work cut out for them.
The fact that AOC is not blindly supporting Biden for 2024 is proof that more and more people are worried that Biden has what it takes to lead the Democratic Party, let alone the entire country.
At 79, Biden has shown that he gets tired easily, gets confused easily, and canât remember enough to get through a speech without everyone wincing with the words that are coming out of his mouth.
The New York Times, a typically left-leaning publication, even reported that âdozens of frustrated Democratic officials, members of Congress and votersâ have shown their doubt that Biden has what it takes to turn the party around.
Even donors within the Democratic Party are looking at other options to support in 2024.
The Democrats will have to do something because the GOP is already considering potential candidates, even beyond a second run for Donald Trump.
Ron DeSantis has been identified as âAmericaâs governorâ because he takes the initiative to lead conservative efforts. At 43, heâs a younger candidate who could get the win not only the Republican primaries but the entire election. Others who are still much younger than Biden include Mike Pence, Nikki Haley, and Tim Scott.
Biden running in 2024 is not a guarantee â even if the old man says that heâs in it for a second term. Heâs got one of the lowest approval ratings among presidents in recent history, so thereâs a good chance he wouldnât win against anyone.
Biden says that heâs the only one who could beat Donald Trump. Just because he did it once doesnât mean he could do it again. Just look at Twitter â most people are ready to trade mean tweets for cheaper gas right about now.
AOC does believe that Biden is doing a good job so far, but the reality is that Biden isnât going to be a good candidate for 2024. David Axelrod, a former chief strategist for former President Barack Obama said it best. âThe presidency is a monstrously taxing job and the stark reality is the president would be closer to 90 than 80 at the end of a second term, and that would be a major issue.â
