(RightWing.org) – Could we be heading for a second Obama presidency? Will the 44th president’s wife step up to replace the visibly failing President Joe Biden? That’s what one Republican senator thinks is about to happen.
President Biden insists he’s going to run for a second term, but a huge majority of Americans now think he’s past his best. A recent poll by the Wall Street Journal found that 73% of all voters — including a devastating two-thirds of Democrats — believe Biden is too old to run for re-election. His mental decline is increasingly obvious; after a rambling and incoherent speech in Vietnam on September 10, which had to be cut short by his own staff, he went on to tell the same story twice within a few minutes on September 21.
The problem for the Democrats is that time is running out. The informal start of the election campaign is nearly upon us, and if Biden doesn’t step down in the next month — two at the outside — the party will struggle to get a new candidate elected. The last thing Dems want is to fight the campaign when voters know that, if Biden gets re-elected, that’s likely to mean the even less popular Kamala Harris taking over sometime in his second term. So what can they do about it?
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) thinks he knows what’s being planned. On the September 18 episode of his “Verdict With Ted Cruz” podcast he told listeners he thinks that a couple of months before the election, senior Democrats will ”jettison Joe Biden and parachute in Michelle Obama.” He said this would spare the party a battle between other possible candidates, like Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, California Governor Gavin Newsom, and, of course, Vice President Harris.
Cruz went on to accuse former president Barack Obama of being “the puppet master, behind this Biden White House.” He added that the media’s sudden turn against the president makes it more likely the Democrats will turn to Mrs. Obama instead.
