Vice President Kamala Harris denies folks throughout the White Home are attempting to undermine her.
Showing on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” host Margaret Brennan requested Harris about gossip that she is being set as much as fail. Harris responded: “No, I don’t imagine I’m being set as much as fail. I’m vp of america. Something that I deal with is as a result of it’s a tricky difficulty and it couldn’t be dealt with at another stage.”
A critic may counsel her assertion implies that what she has been assigned to do — most important, fix the border problem — can’t be dealt with on the stage of the president. That’s in all probability not what she meant, however how else to decode her assertion? A vp shouldn’t be impartial of a president and should perform his needs. If the border isn’t being secured, if different initiatives assigned to her are failing (and what are they?), the buck stops with the president.
When requested her “greatest failure,” Harris said it has been not getting out of Washington enough. That‘s simply mounted since she has entry to a authorities airplane that may take her anyplace on this planet.
Let me counsel a means for her and the president to reach her task to unravel the border drawback: Take the supplies that taxpayers have already paid for and are mendacity on the bottom and end constructing the wall and ensure those that have entered the nation illegally get vaccinated.
If the Biden administration’s insurance policies had been working, each his and her ballot numbers would replicate their success.
Brennan volunteered to Harris an excuse for her lack of achievements: She mentioned there isn’t a doubt ladies are judged in another way. A double customary does exist on the subject of ladies, however not only for the explanation Brennan advised. There’s a double customary on the subject of Republican ladies, particularly Republican black ladies.
The latest instance is the election of Winsome Sears, Virginia’s incoming lieutenant governor. There have been no main media fawning over Sears (besides Fox Information), no statements about how her victory advances the pursuits of African People and boosts the GOP’s picture as much less white and male.
That’s as a result of the media and the left should not in sync with Sears’ conservative beliefs and her refusal to just accept the false notion that black People are victims who’re unable to do a lot with out the assistance of presidency. That’s worse than a double customary. It’s its personal type of bigotry.
Within the Brennan interview, there isn’t a point out of a connection between Biden administration insurance policies and inflation that has prompted massive will increase within the value of every day necessities, together with gasoline and meals. Neither is there an acknowledgment that the president has didn’t shut down COVID-19 as he promised he would through the marketing campaign.
In a video convention name with governors Monday, the president mentioned there is “no federal solution” to the pandemic. That’s not what he advised throughout his marketing campaign for the job.
The general public isn’t being fooled by all of the blather coming from Harris and Biden.
In lower than one yr, the president and his veep have taken the financial and border successes of the Trump administration and turned them in the other way. The 2 seem weak and indecisive. Voters are noticing. Polls present a purple wave coming within the subsequent election. It may very well be one purpose why a number of on Harris’ employees have departed and rumors are swirling of discontent amongst those that stay. It could even have contributed to retirement bulletins by 15 Home Democrats (to this point). Subsequent yr shouldn’t be wanting good for them, their social gathering or the nation.
