This was supposed to happen about a week after President Biden’s State of the Union address, but it didn’t.
There were three significant resignations inside the White House. The initial reports of the resignations claimed Joe was moving staff around for the supposed announcement. But as of the writing of this post, it never happened.
A CBS report from January 19, 2023, parrotted what many other new organizations claimed:
President Biden is likely to announce his bid for reelection “not long after” he delivers hison Feb. 7, a source with knowledge of the ongoing planning confirmed to CBS News.
The exact date of Mr. Biden’s announcement has not been finalized yet, according to the source, who said, “This has always, always been our plan. State of the Union first, candidate later.”
CNN was the first to report the approximate timing of the president’s announcement.
Well, that’s changed.
Joe Biden’s closest advisers have spent months preparing for him to formally announce his reelection campaign. But with the president still not ready to make the plunge, a sense of doubt is creeping into conversations around 2024: What if he decides not to?
Biden’s past decisions around seeking the presidency have been protracted, painstaking affairs. This time, he has slipped past his most ambitious timetable, as previously outlined by advisers, to launch in February. Now they are coalescing around April.
I’m sure the document scandal, Nord Stream scandal, the East Palestine debacle, the Hunter Biden scandal, inflation, housing costs, grocery bills, and social media scandals have nothing to do with it (heavy sarcasm).
Biden’s other problem is that poll after poll shows that Democrats do not want Joe to run again.
If you go on to read the Politico report, they claim Biden is a deep thinker who is just biding his time and constantly working for the good of America. However, if you read between the lines report shows Democrats are nervous.
