There have been a few rumors regarding Joe Biden and his candidacy in the 2024 election.
Of course, there is the usual nonsense about Hillary Clinton, as well as a shadow campaign being run by Governor Gavin Newsom of California.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) is throwing another familiar name into the mix, saying he thinks it will be Michelle Obama.
Over the last few polling cycles, Donald Trump has started to distance himself from Joe Biden, and that is terrifying Democrats.
In fact, this has resulted in Rep. Dean Phillips (D-MN) announcing that he would be running for office himself.
Cruz stated that he believes Barack Obama is actually pulling the strings of the Biden administration, which would not surprise me at all if it were true.
The Texas senator said, “It's been my view for a long time that Barack Obama has been the person pulling the strings behind Joe Biden. Joe Biden is clearly not up to it. I think Obama is making the decision. And Axelrod is Obama's right hand.”
Axelrod has openly questioned if Biden is the right man for the job, recently stating that as long as Biden is going to run, he will win the nomination, but he questioned if that would be the right move for the Democrat Party.
He stated, “Only Joe Biden can make this decision. If he continues to run, he will be the nominee of the Democratic Party. What he needs to decide is whether that is wise; whether it's in HIS best interest or the country's?”
Cruz responded to that by stating, “I said on my podcast three months ago, Verdict with Ted Cruz, I predicted there was a very real chance that the Democrats would jettison Joe Biden and parachute in Michelle Obama and that they'd do it at the convention next summer.
“I think the chances of that are rising every day.”
Now, I take very few politicians at their word, but I do believe what Michelle Obama has stated on this matter that she has no interest in running for president or heading to DC again.
The Obamas are living the charmed life right now, hanging out on yachts and hobnobbing with all the big names in entertainment, and they surely are not going to give that up for the Oval Office.
They are already enjoying all the benefits the presidency has to offer, so why go back, especially Michelle, who I firmly believe despises this country and everything the White House stands for?
If Biden goes down, I think the next man up is Gavin Newsom. So, sorry Senator Cruz, but I think you got this one wrong.
