It’s no secret that much of our nation has grown impatient with the Biden administration’s foot-dragging on a number of key issues here in the United States, but now there are frustrations boiling up from deep within the Democratic Party itself.
Biden, who appeared reluctant to even run for office back in 2020, has been largely ineffectual during his time in office, despite the Democrats holding a majority in both houses of Congress.
The left is now flashing a bit of their cannibalistic angst.
Democrats are growing increasingly frustrated by what they say is a flat-footed White House that is slow to catch up on solving a seemingly never-ending cascade of problems in the face of an unrelenting news cycle.
They point to the recent baby formula shortage as the latest example of how President Biden has failed to get ahead of the story, allowing Republicans to set the narrative as yet another failure for the White House. But they also highlighted Biden’s lag on other issues at the top of voter’s minds: inflation and gas prices.Trending:
Democrats were also miffed when the White House was caught off guard when a federal judge in Florida lifted the mask mandate on airlines in April and also when a leaked draft of the Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v. Wade was made public, even though both were events that surprised Washington more broadly — not just the White House.
And they are furious.
“It’s really simple: ‘Be the f—ing president!,” said one Democratic strategist frustrated by the administration. “I realize it’s tough and you’re drinking out of a fire hose every single day, but there are things you can do to control the public perception and they haven’t done any of that.”
President Biden and others within the administration has suggested that he’ll be running for office again in 2024, but comments like these are sure to add some doubt to the conversation.
