‘Off The Record’ Dem Rep Says Biden Will NOT Run in 2024

The presidency of Joe Biden thus far has been lackluster, to say the very least, and it has created a great deal of doubt among the Democrats as to the viability of his purported plans for reelection.

Biden has been an ineffective president, seemingly imbuing his time in office with the same reluctance that saw him reticent to even run for office in the first place.  His inattention and his unwillingness to address a number of pure American crises has a vast number of prominent Democrats suggesting that Biden sit out the next election altogether.

According to at least one House Rep., they may just get their wish.

Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.), who has represented parts of New York City since 1993, said in an interview with The New York Times editorial board published Saturday that President Biden is “not running again” in 2024.

During the exchange that preceded the question about Biden, the 76-year-old congresswoman seemed to become confused. “Should there be term limits for members of Congress?” editorial board member Eleanor Randolph asked Maloney.

“No,” Maloney said.

“Should there be an age limit for members of Congress?” Randolph asked next.

“Members of Congress have a term limit. It’s called an election every two years,” Maloney answered, apparently responding to the previous question.

Here’s where it gets bold:

The exchange about Biden began when Randolph asked Maloney whether Biden should run for a second term. “Off the record, he’s not running again,” Maloney said. She did not specify how she knew Biden would not seek a second term in 2024.

“Not off the record. On the record,” journalist Jyoti Thottam insisted. According to the Poynter Institute for Media Studies, journalistic ethics stipulate that a source cannot unilaterally go off the record. The reporter must agree.

“On the record? No, he should not run again,” Maloney said in response to Thottam’s prompting.

While it surely isn’t desirable for this news to have been realized in such a way, the Democrats are likely emitting a rather powerful sigh of relief at the moment, knowing that they won’t be forced to pretend that Joe Biden is the right man for the job any longer.
