Biden Gets the Job Done
I’m ignoring the absurd Biden impeachment rumblings in the House. MAGA Republicans are totally delusional. They’d rather make the House a circus than govern. No surprise there.
But I do want to talk about President Biden. I want to talk about the contrast we’re going to make that’s going to elect him President again in 2024.
Here’s the biggest strength of the Biden presidency. He gets the job done. He knows where the levers are in the House and Senate. He doesn’t brag. He does what he needs to do and he does it well.
So when voters head to the ballot box next November, they’re going to be supporting a President who:
- Passed three huge bills investing in infrastructure, reducing the price of insulin for millions, and building chip factories in areas that desperately need job investment.
- Negotiated our debt ceiling and the fate of our global economy out of a hostage crisis with MAGA extremists.
- Held the Democratic world together against Putin’s fascist warmongering.
- Has the economy growing – with record low unemployment and job creation.
Really, that’s just the start of his accomplishments. Tens of millions of Americans have seen tangible improvements in their lives because of Biden. Any sane voter is thankful to have a White House that isn’t teetering on the brink of disaster.
And our President did it all quietly. But guess what? That’s the point.
Because we’re going to take that work and contrast it with the crazy legacy of Trump. Everyone remembers what it was like between 2017 and 2021. It was a four-year crisis. Even former conservatives couldn’t stand the man’s daily temper tantrums and completely erratic leadership. He and MAGA destroyed the idea that the GOP is conservative.
Since voters tossed him out of the White House by a 7 million plus vote margin, Trump hasn’t exactly done anything proving he’s any closer to sanity. The indictments keep stacking up, his rants are increasingly out of step with reality. He’s paranoid and turning on his closest associates (the ads we air in his house play a big role in that).
Now, say by some miracle Trump’s legal troubles catch up to him. Or somehow he loses his grasp on the nomination. Ron DeSantis’ crazy really isn’t any different.
Picking a fight with one of the most beloved brands in America. Bullying marginalized groups. The man’s nasty, he’s unlikeable, and he doesn’t campaign on a single policy that appeals to the electorate that swings general elections.
So, Trump or DeSantis (it’s gonna be Trump). The contrast is still the same. They’re nominating the crazy and we’re nominating a guy who actually knows how to do the work.
I’ve been in Presidential campaigns for 40+ years now. I’ve never seen a contrast so simple. A message that can be so clearly made to the public.
Yet, I still see pundits carping about Biden’s re-election chances. If those people make you nervous, I’ve got advice for you. Don’t listen to them. They’re being paid to gin up drama here.
If the pro-democracy coalition turns out like it will, and The Lincoln Project once again leads the messaging fight for those swing voters in Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, this election will be a wrap. Four more years of Biden. A death blow to MAGA and Trump. Let’s do this.
