President Biden appears to be leaning toward running for reelection in 2024, Politico reports on the product of discussions with family as they celebrate Thanksgiving in Nantucket. No formal announcement appears imminent, but the entry of disgraced former President Trump, better than expected midterm results for Democrats, and the lack of a clear successor are all pushing the Lord of Ice Cream toward campaigning as an 81 year old incumbent.
Biden has reportedly privately made clear his belief he’s the only one who can defeat the Orange God Emperor and the grave threat he poses to American democracy again. It’s hard to argue with that even if Old Joe is, well, pretty freaking old. The midterms went far better for Democrats than even he might’ve expected, with independent voters breaking 49 to 47 for Blue. Staying the course is the smartest thing to do as Republicans work themselves up into increasing insanity.
