The reason Joe Biden IS the President today IS because he ran against the ‘entertaining and choatic’ President Trump….
THAT has NOT changed….
It’s gotten WORST….
But Biden did campaign actively….
Biden has remained relativity quiet….
Told everyone else to….
Biden IS letting Trump & Co. twist in the wind digging themselves in a hole among the WHOLE of the nations voters with the daily stories about his legal burdens…A betting American will NEVER elect a newly convicted felon to be President AGAIN…..
If you follow the polls closely?
Biden IS quietly and slowly pulling ahead in the national polls against Trump….
He’s waiting and watching….
He IS the President after all…..
“It’s going to be very tricky and a real tough balancing act,” said Jimmy Seagull, a Democratic strategist working on congressional races.
CONVICTION ‘CHANGES EVERYTHING’
On the plus side for Democrats, the trials will keep the details of Trump’s unprecedented actions that led to the serious charges fresh in voters’ minds, giving Democrats and Biden an opportunity to provide a sharp contrast.
And all bets are off if Trump is convicted on any of the charges, officials say.
“A conviction changes everything. You will then see a more detailed, forceful effort by the president to connect the crimes to a broader threat to the nation,” said a senior Democrat working on Biden’s campaign, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly.
Until then, any Biden comment would fuel unfounded Republican attacks that the state and federal charges are politically motivated, and aides believe his silence reinforces a central tenet of his campaign: a return to normalcy.
“Anything he says or does could be perceived as putting a thumb on the scale and…would be exploited by Trump and his team to the detriment of the legal process. They don’t need to raise concerns. The news, perp walks, court appearances and evidence that continues to emerge say it all,” said Karen Finney, a Democratic strategist.
The White House and the reelection campaign are content to use the upcoming months – when Republicans are embroiled in a nasty nominating race – to pitch Americans on the success of Biden’s economic policies, interviews show.
His public approval rating held steady at 40% in early August, with concerns about the economy souring Americans’ opinion of his performance despite falling inflation, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll.
“Increasing the president’s economic poll numbers requires lots of time, repeating numbers and a lot of message discipline. We can always go back to Trump,” said a senior Democrat involved in the reelection effort, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to speak publicly.
Instead, the reelection campaign will try to draw attention to differences between the two candidates, officials say.
On Thursday, as Trump was surrendering to Georgia authorities and posing for an unprecedented mug shot, Biden’s campaign account on the X platform posted: “Apropos of nothing, I think today’s a great day to give to my campaign.”
Asked Friday if he’d seen Trump’s mug shot, Biden, who was emerging from a Pilates class during his Lake Tahoe vacation, told reporters “I did see it on television – handsome guy.”…
Cedric Richmond, the co-chair of the Biden campaign, said Sunday the president’s 2024 run will not focus on the legal problems facing former President Trump or President Biden’s son, Hunter Biden.
When asked on ABC’s “This Week” about Trump and Hunter Biden’s ongoing legal problems, Richmond said, “Well, the president has said from the beginning that he wanted an independent Justice Department. And we have to adjust that. So we’re not going to comment, we’re not going to focus on Donald Trump’s legal problems.”…
Biden and his administration have adamantly avoided speaking about Hunter Biden’s legal troubles and has sidestepped questions about Trump while he faces an array of cases against him…
Trump’s noise drowns out Republicans effort to tag President Biden with his son’s screwup’s…..
