There are generally three ways to tell your opponents are terrified of you
- They’re running away while screaming in fear
- They keep offering you money to leave them alone
- They make fun of you for being old and senile
Sure no. 3 isn’t officially on the list, but Biden’s highly paid class of political geniuses is trying to add it there.
“President Biden also led Democrats to the best midterm elections for a new incumbent in over 60 years, and to a string of other wins in 2023,” White House spokesperson Andrew Bates said in the Saturday memo. “These are historic accomplishments that President Biden was uniquely capable of realizing – and that he is uniquely capable of building on.”
“And this undeniable record speaks to why it’s no surprise that Republican officials’ continue their desperate – and inadvertently self-undermining – age attacks after many years of failure: they’re afraid of Joe Biden,” the memo continued.
There is fear in that memo, but not Republican fear.
Who is that memo really directed at, Republicans or Democrats? Consider the repeated use of the term “uniquely”. Is that really aimed at Republicans, who could hardly care about Biden’s uniqueness, or Democrats?
What “uniquely” really says is, “don’t replace me”.
There’s fear in that memo. And it’s the smell of Biden’s fear.
