Kamala Harris Might Be President – President Joe Biden is running again. If Biden were to run again and win reelection in 2024, by the time he was sworn in, he’d be 82 years old.
As of 2020, the average male life expectancy in the United States was 77 years old. Biden would be five years past that.
Given the high stress of the presidency, and the fact that Biden already has health problems, his vice-presidential pick is likely to be far more important than it normally would be for most voters.
Uninspiring to the Core
Kamala Harris is an uninspiring figure.
She rose to power in the most dubious ways (by beginning her time in California politics allegedly having an affair with the politically connected Willie Brown).
Once in power, Harris spent her time maneuvering herself into national political office, eventually landing a senate seat representing California. While in the United States Senate, Harris failed to distinguish herself—other than falsely accusing President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, of rape.
Kamala Harris couldn’t even properly assassinate the character an innocent Republican jurist whose only crime was being exceptional at his job. When she ran for president, Harris was billed as the female Barack Obama who would usher in a new rainbow coalition-driven future for America.
Her campaign for presidency in 2020 was so unimpressive that she bailed out of the Democratic Party’s Presidential Primary that year before her own state of California voted (fearing that she would lose even there).
Thanks to Civil Rights icon Sen. James Clyburn (D-SC), who many suspects told Joe Biden that he’d only support Biden’s fledgling presidential campaign if Biden chose a woman of color to be his number two (Kamala Harris), Harris was given her current position as vice-president.
As vice president, Kamala Harris has been given what some believe to be a poison pill portfolio which includes resolving the embarrassingly broken US border crisis, ending the Russo-Ukraine War, and preventing a space war with Russia and China.
All that for a woman who cannot seem to sync her lips with her voice or learn what times are appropriate and inappropriate to cackle in public.
Harris, By the Numbers
As for Vice-President Harris’ approval numbers?
They’re in the toilet. For example, her disapproval rating as of now is 51 percent.
At the same time, however, the way that Harris was billed at the start of her ascent toward the White House, the expectations that she would be the next great president-in-waiting, who would bring another perspective to the White House was one of her key appeals for voters.
Yet, her record clearly shows the limits of these expectations. In the role of number two, these failures and flaps are mildly humorous. If she were to be made president because Biden cannot complete his term due to an age-related crisis, Harris’ negatives would be far more concerning.
It’s 3 A.M., Who Do You Want Answering the Phone?
Imagine that 3 a.m. emergency phone call coming through to a President Kamala Harris in which she would be required to clearly think on her feet, initiate decisive action, and stay plugged into the crisis until it abated.
Judging from her record in government thus far, Kamala Harris is almost completely useless. That’s why it is incumbent upon the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to push Harris out as Biden’s number two (if he is, in fact, running). She cannot run this country. Harris can barely run her office.
Come to think of it, given his age and utter failure as president, Biden shouldn’t be running at all. Everything is falling apart under his leadership. We need a new generation of dynamic leaders from both parties to put their hats in the ring and offer a bold vision for the future.
It’s time for Biden to dump Harris.
