Steve Forbes: Biden and Harris Will Not Be On Dem Ticket Next Year – Forbes publisher Steve Forbes contends in a video posted on the Forbes YouTube channel that neither Joe Biden nor Kamala Harris will be their party’s nominees for president or vice president in 2024. Forbes, himself a presidential candidate for the GOP nomination in 1996 and 2000, warned that Biden and Harris have become political liabilities for their party.
He listed three reasons why he believes Biden will not be the Democratic nominee.
“Voters are increasingly concerned about his capacity to handle the job, particulary as the country is beset with serious problems at home and abroad,” Forbes said.
A second reason was that revelations surrounding the “revolting” allegations about his potential involvement and financial gain from his son and family’s alleged political corruption, which Forbes argued was “leading to uncomfortable questions” about how they all benefitted from his holding high office.
“Third. The economy is going into rough waters going into 2024. He won’t be able to avoid blame for that,” Forbes said. “A troubled economy ahead makes his boasting tour bizarre, and it will underscore increasingly how out of touch the man and his team have become.
“Political pundits believe that the hard Left will prevent any serious challenge to the incumbent, but events will force a reckoning.”
Good Bye, Joe Biden?
Forbes contends that Biden will step aside, claiming that he has done a “fantastic job” as president, and the far Left will agree.
“Modern Socialism, government control not by nationalization but by regulation, has made immense strides under Biden,” Forbes said. “The government now has its hooks in new swaths of the economy. Chipmakers are a notable catch, as well as increasing its grip on other parts of the economy such as banks, autos, and healthcare.
Forbes continues: “The IRS is being weaponized to intimidate nonconformists and to squeeze cash from the middle class and small businesses who don’t have the resources to effectively fight big government. The moralizing dominance of big government continues apace.”
Potentially banning gas stoves and window air conditioners are two examples of this moralism in Forbes’ opinion.
He contends that the “breaking point” between what the Left wants and what the American people will tolerate is fast approaching. This is evidenced, he said, by the revolt against public schools in places like Florida, where educational savings accounts have become law.
“The government educational monopoly is breaking up,” Forbes said. “Biden’s approval ratings are shriveling, and the far Left will ditch Joe Biden in order to get a candidate who has a better chance of winning next year and thereby preserving what these extremists have achieved and want to achieve.”
What About Kamala Harris?
He saved his parting shots for Kamala Harris and her “embarrassing” performance as vice president. Just this past week, Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo mocked the American “obsession” with China while standing next to Harris in a slight against the vice president’s Africa trip. Harris’ trip was intended to counter Chinese influence on the continent.
“China is just one country that Ghana is engaged with. Your country is one of them,” Akufo-Addo said.
Forbes predicts this abysmal performance will result in her “pursuing new opportunities” after 2024.
“Next year, there will emerge a Jimmy Carter-like outsider, and who knows, maybe Sen. Joe Manchin will make a third-party bid,” Forbes said.
