For the Good of the Nation, Biden Needs to Stay in the Race

This headline will have some people wondering what I am smoking. But hear me out.

Biden Has a Unique Quality

Assuming you are still reading, Biden’s unique quality is ability to lose to Trump. And that’s a good thing.

The US cannot afford another disastrous four years of this president. Everything Biden has done has been inflationary.

Energy policy. Check
Regulations. Check
Student Debt Cancellation. Check
Push for More Unions. Check
Push for More Child Tax Credits. Check
Tariff Policy. Check
Inflation Reduction Act: Check

Trump is on board with tariffs, but not the rest.

What’s Fixable and What’s Not?

If you are a Republican, you should want Biden to hang on, willing to take your chances on Trump beating him.

Trump would not be my choice for many reasons. At the top of the list, I am a free market, mind my own business Libertarian.

But there is no chance of changing the Republican end of the ticket. The saving grace for Biden is he may the one person Trump is most likely to beat.

Saving Democracy

Bill Maher: “The whole rationale for Biden running has always been I’m the only guy who can beat Trump. Now I think it’s inverted. He’s the only guy who can lose to him. I keep hearing all day from these Democrats we can’t abandon Joe Biden. What about me? I feel abandoned. I have nobody to vote for.”

Nate Silver – The Big Picture

That image is from Nate Silver’s post The Presidential Election Isn’t a Toss-Up.

It was on June 26, ahead of the debate. Please do not confuse Nate Silver with his old 538 site which ridiculously had Biden with a slight lead ahead of the debate.

The all-hands efforts, from Wilmington to Washington, showed the depths of the damage Mr. Biden did to his re-election campaign in a mere 90 minutes. His campaign has been criticized as insular and insistent, so the burst of activity signaled that the debate fallout had turned into a real crisis that spun those in his orbit into a frantic battle mode.

He’s being selfish. He’s putting himself ahead of the country. He’s surrounded by opportunistic enablers. He has created a reality distortion field where we’re told not to believe what we’ve plainly seen. His hubris is infuriating. He says he’s doing this for us, but he’s really doing it for himself. I’m not talking about Donald Trump. I’m talking about the other president.

In Washington, people often become what they start out scorning. This has happened to Joe Biden. In his misguided quest for a second term that would end when he’s 86, he has succumbed to behavior redolent of Trump.

For years I have stated that Biden’s arrogance and Hubris is every bit as awful as Trump’s but the only real difference is Biden was more polite about it.

It’s great to see a NYT columnist make the same point.

Biden Challenges Trump to Golf in the Debate

One Person Worse than Biden

NYT: To Serve His Country, President Biden Should Leave the Race

The New York Times editorial board says To Serve His Country, President Biden Should Leave the Race

I strongly disagree.

To serve the nation, Biden needs to hang on to the bitter end, losing to Trump.

The country may not like Trump for many reasons. But economically speaking, Biden has been an absolute disaster.

Even worse, and despite the denials, Governor Gavin Newsom is likely on deck.

Newsom is one person guaranteed to be worse than Biden. Here’s the key question: What are the odds Trump could beat Newsom?

I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to find out.

Ironically, to serve the nation, Biden needs to hang on. It may be the only thing in four years he will have done right.
