WaPo columnist calls for Biden and Harris BOTH to ‘bow out’ of 2024 race ‘for the good of the country’

With the most important midterm elections in the nation’s history now only days away, Democrats and their allies are bracing for the impact of what some are predicting will be a “red tsunami” that will sweep the party out of total political control with losses so deep that they will reverberate well beyond next Tuesday, possibly inflicting grave damage on the party’s electoral prospects for years to come.

In a remarkable effort at containing the damage of a midterm catastrophe considering the source of its publication, a prominent Washington Post columnist is calling for both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris to “bow out” of the running in the 2024 election.

In his Wednesday op-ed, George Will – a hardened Never Trumper – cited the 79-year-old Biden’s vast array of gaffes and falsehoods as well as the airheaded performance of Harris, who got the nod for the bottom half of the 2020 ticket solely because of her gender and skin color instead of the qualifications and experience normally required for the person who is a heartbeat away from the presidency, to call for the dynamic duo to decline to run again “for the good of the country.”

The columnist drew two recent examples of Biden’s “verbal fender benders,” with his claiming that his decree to erase student loan debt was an actual “law” that he had signed off on and his claim that his son Beau was killed in Iraq rather than from the brain cancer that claimed his life years after his combat service, to state that the POTUS “should not seek another term” and that “he must be presumed susceptible to future episodes of similar bewilderment.”

Will was even blunter when it came to Harris who has been an unmitigated disaster for Democrats.

“An Everest of evidence shows that Vice President Kamala Harris is starkly unqualified to be considered as his successor,” he wrote. “Transcripts of her verbal meanderings cannot convey their eerie strangeness. Videos of them should be watched. ”

“What most excited her about the Inflation Reduction Act?” Will asked in one of several examples of the veep’s public loopiness, “’I have a particular fondness, I must tell you, for electric school buses. I love electric school buses. I really do . . . I’ve been on these electric school buses . . . 25 million children in our country, every day, go to school on those diesel-fueled school buses. And hundreds, thousands of school bus drivers are driving those buses. Which are then, these people—these children, these adults—are inhaling what is toxic air.’”

“Enough. She sounds, as a critic has said, like someone giving a book report on a book she has not read. Her style betrays a self-satisfied exaggeration of her aptitudes. Lacking natural talent, she needs to prepare, but evidently doesn’t. Complacency and arrogance make a ruinous compound,” wrote Will. “Regarding Biden and Harris, the national Democratic Party faces two tests of stewardship: Its imprimatur cannot again be bestowed on either of them. Biden is not just past his prime; even adequacy is in his past. And this is Harris’s prime.

“In 2024, the Republican Party might present the nation with a presidential nominee whose unfitness has been demonstrated. After next Tuesday’s sobering election results, Democrats should resolve not to insult and imperil the nation by doing likewise,” he concluded, acknowledging that Trump would mop the floor with Biden and/or Harris if he runs in 2024, the ultimate nightmare of Democrats and collaborators like Will.

If the deep midterm losses that are being predicted become a reality, there will be a need for scapegoats and throwing Biden and Harris under the – presumably electric-powered – bus would be a highly visible move that would spare others from accountability for their own roles in the destruction of America in just two short years.
