With Republicans taking over the House, investigations into President Joe Biden’s administration are set to take off — as they should. As stated in the Constitution, oversight is one the most important jobs of legislators.
There have been rumours that Republicans may impeach Biden. But top leaders of the party have avoided this possibility. But that was before a cache of classified documents was found in Biden’s garage — and then kept hidden until after the midterm elections.
However, one GOP lawmaker believes Biden has an insurance policy that will prevent him from being impeached: Vice President Kamala Harris.
“Joe Biden has failed the American people and he’s keeping some members from calling for impeachment by having a historically unpopular vice president,” Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) said Fox News.
“Both have failed to faithfully uphold and execute the law, and both should be held fully accountable,” She added. “Kamala Harris is Biden’s shrewd insurance policy.”
In the last couple of months, Obama administration-era classified documents have been found at the Penn Biden Center in Washington, D.C., and at Biden’s Wilmington, Delaware, home.
There have been whispers about Republicans trying to impeach Biden. However, Democrats and liberal news outlets openly discuss dropping Harris from 2024.
Harris is just 58 and is the first female vice president — the highest-ranking female official in U.S. history. Harris is also the first African-American and first Asian American vice president. This ticks a lot of boxes, especially for identity-conscious Democrats.
Yet, the conversation continues. Some stories suggest that Biden should drop Harris if he runs again. Others say that if he doesn’t run, the party should bail on her and pick someone else.
The stories aren’t wrong, per se. They contain facts, such as this September report. survey Morning Consult: Only 28% of Democratic voters would support Harris in a Democratic presidential primaries without Biden, a drop from 33% in a survey last year. You don’t win the White House with those numbers.
Harris was the latest liberal site to be attacked by Slate.
“As Joe Biden weighs a run for re-election even as he becomes the first octogenarian U.S. president in history, he should think back on what it was like to watch the Harris campaign flame out,” Christina Cauterucci wrote. “Harris, a proven dud of a presidential candidate who has done little to distinguish herself since is not a good choice for the Democrats’ top billing. For his second term, should he seek one (he shouldn’t!), Biden should tap someone else.”
It turns out that Harris is even less popular than her predecessors.
“As the country has become more partisan, vice presidents have been less likely to enjoy broad support among the public. [Mike] Pence, for example, had a net favorability of roughly zero for much of his four years in the White House. Joe Biden, Dick Cheney, and Al Gore all began their tenures with higher ratings than Harris currently enjoys,” Los Angeles Times wrote last month.
In an October issue of Capitol Weekly, Harris was openly mocked by the magazine. piece headlined, “Memo to Democrats: Beware of Kamala Harris, in 2024 or beyond.”
“Despite her obvious intelligence, Harris just isn’t very good, I’m sorry to say, either as a candidate or communicator,” Democrat strategist Garry South wrote. “When it comes to Harris and 2024 – or beyond — Democrats would be wise to bear in mind the old time-honored caution, caveat emptor.”
