Vice President Kamala Harris denies folks throughout the White Home try to undermine her.
Showing on CBS’ “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 the US. Something that I deal with is as a result of it’s a troublesome difficulty, and it couldn’t be dealt with at another stage.”
A critic would possibly counsel her assertion implies that what she has been assigned to do—most significantly, to repair the border downside—can’t be dealt with on the stage of the president. That’s most likely not what she meant, however how else to decode her assertion?
A vp isn’t unbiased of a president and should perform his needs. If the border isn’t being secured, if different tasks assigned to her are failing (and what are they?), the buck stops with the president.
When requested her “greatest failure,” Harris mentioned it has been not getting out of Washington sufficient. That’s simply fastened, since she has entry to a authorities airplane that may take her anyplace on this planet.
Let me counsel a method for her and the president to reach her task to unravel the border downside: Take the supplies that taxpayers have already paid for and are mendacity on the bottom, and end constructing the wall and ensuring those that have entered the nation illegally get vaccinated.
If the Biden administration’s insurance policies have 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 a different way. A double customary does exist in the case of ladies, however simply not for the rationale Brennan recommended. There’s a double customary in the case of Republican ladies, particularly Republican black ladies.
The newest instance is the election of Winsome Sears, the incoming lieutenant governor of Virginia. There was no main media fawning over Sears (besides on Fox Information), no statements about how her victory advances the pursuits of African People and boosts the picture of the GOP 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 brought on 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 videoconference name with governors on Monday, the president mentioned there’s “no federal answer” to the pandemic. That’s not what he recommended throughout his marketing campaign for the job.
The general public isn’t being fooled by all of the blather coming from Harris and President Joe Biden.
In lower than one 12 months, the president and Harris 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 motive why a number of on Harris’ employees have departed, and rumors are swirling of discontent amongst those that stay. It might even have contributed to retirement bulletins by 15 Home Democrats (up to now). 2022 isn’t wanting good for them, their social gathering, or the nation.
