Hawaii Governor: Biden to Make Decision About Future 'In Next Couple of Days'

According to Hawaii’s Democrat Governor Josh Green, President Biden will be making some sort of major decision on his political future in the “next couple of days.”

The entire world is anxiously awaiting whether Biden decides to stay in the 2024 presidential race as the Democratic nominee or chooses to drop out and let someone replace him atop the ticket. Speculation has swirled about Biden’s candidacy following his presidential debate performance against former President Donald Trump, though the president has remained steadfast thus far in his candidacy.

“We’ll probably know in the next couple of days how the president feels about all this,” Hawaii Gov. Josh Green told the Associated Press on Saturday.

“I think the president stays in this race unless he feels that it is not winnable, or he feels that he has to hear other voices in his inner circle that he shouldn’t run,” Green said. “If the president felt that he wasn’t up to it and truly not up to it, he would step down.

Although Hawaii is a staunch Democrat stronghold, one still has to wonder how the governor of the Aloha State has these kinds of insights as to the president’s thought processes (or lack thereof.) And let’s be honest, amongst ourselves at least; President Biden won’t be making these decisions alone, if indeed he’s involved at all. His wife and son will be the primary decision-makers, and the befuddled old president won’t be stepping away from the campaign unless Frau Doktor Professor Jill Biden and the couple’s ne’er-do-well son Hunter give the go-ahead.

The rate at which Democrats are abandoning the sinking Biden ship is amazing, and the confidence that Governor Green seems to have in the president’s mental capacity is, to say the least, misplaced. President Biden probably doesn’t know what he feels about all this – and it’s notable, isn’t it, how Governor Green uses the phrase “how the president feels about all this” rather than “what the president thinks about all this,” but then, the reason for that is kind of obvious, isn’t it?

There are only two rational options open to the Biden camp at the moment. First, Joe Biden steps away from the race and serves out the rest of his term as the lamest lame duck that ever lame-ducked. Second, he resigns the presidency in favor of Kamala Harris, leaving her as the presumptive nominee (and inheritor of the Biden campaign war chest) to face former President Donald Trump in November. Neither of those involves the option of continuing to enrich the Biden family, so at this point, neither seems like they would be too palatable to Jill and Hunter Biden.

Speaking of Kamala Harris: The Governor of Hawaii also spoke out on President Biden’s understudy:

Green also threw his support behind Vice President Kamala Harris if Biden ultimately decides to withdraw from the race. He said, “there are no credentials that are better than what the current vice president has.”

It’s hard to read that without a spit-take.

 This is another data point supporting an assertion I’ve been making for a few days now regarding the 2024 presidential contest: Democrats are just plain out of good options.
