Why Would Republicans Want Biden to Resign?

AMAC Exclusive – by Herald Boas

biden

It is obvious that Joe Biden has just gone through the worst month of what is still the early part of his presidency.

His conduct of the U.S. military withdrawal from Afghanistan has drawn near-unanimous sharp criticism at home and abroad, and he is beset with crises and challenges in domestic and foreign issues, many of his own making.

As a result, many Republican officials and some conservative commentators are calling for him to resign.

The question is whether such calls make good political sense for the opposition party, or are even good for the country.

The 2022 national mid-term elections will enter their home stretch in less than a year. Republicans, as of now, are poised to make substantial gains in the U.S House, likely regaining the majority. The GOP also looks primed to win a small net gain in the U.S. Senate, thus reclaiming control. And Republicans are also expected to expand their lead in governorships and state legislatures. This circumstance existed before the debacle in Afghanistan, and if anything, has been enhanced by it.

Mr. Biden and his supporters are counting on voters to forget Afghanistan by next November — although hundreds of Americans remain stranded there, and the new Taliban regime’s ability and desire to stop terrorist and jihadist groups’ acting from there is questionable at best.

Recent polling suggests that the political damage to Mr. Biden is quite serious, and possibly more than short-term. Most polls, including those which formerly were very generous to the President, now show his approval percentage deeply in the negative. A USA Today poll had his positives at 41%. Most other polls have him in the low-to-mid 40s. An Emerson Poll had him losing to former president Trump 46-45 — indicating that many independents and quite a few Democrats are having second thoughts about 2020. Since such polls reflect the popular vote, including the large populations concentrated in heavily Democratic states such as California, New York and Illinois, the one-point poll lead indicates a theoretical landslide in the electoral college vote for Mr. Trump.

As other issues come to the fore, the anger about Afghanistan will subside — but would it be forgotten, especially if Mr. Biden were to leave office before the end of his term? And if he did resign, his successor would be Vice President Kamala Harris who, so far, has given no indication she is ready or able to assume the presidency. If Ms. Harris did become president, the next in line would be Speaker Nancy Pelosi — until a President Harris nominated a new vice president who might be even further left than she is. Moreover, any new president would likely have a honeymoon period with many voters, and if this took place now, it could alter the course of the 2022 elections.

Mr. Biden now has to face the issue of a clearly worsening U.S.-Mexican border crisis, sudden economic inflation, lingering pandemic issues, Chinese provocations in Asia, ongoing Middle East debacles, and resistance to radical proposals (such as defunding the police) originating in his own party (but opposed by many voters.)

The past several weeks have also seen the unprecedented abandonment, probably temporarily, of the mainstream media from protecting Mr. Biden — as it has done since the 2020 presidential campaign. In regard to the Afghan disaster, liberal editorial pages and commentators were often even more brutally critical of Mr. Biden than their conservative counterparts. Although already showing signs of softening, suddenly the Biden administration no longer has the guaranteed support the mainstream media once provided.

With the president’s standing impaired, he might be more of a hindrance than a help to Democratic candidates in 2022. In the weeks and months ahead, the real pressure for Mr. Biden to resign is more likely to come from within his own party then from any Republican.

Unfortunately we will really loose any hope of survival if bozo joe bails out and leaves Harris to finish the anal intercourses o no joe started. Can you imagine what an Pelosi-Harris could dream up to drive the final nail in the USA COFFIN it is REAL. WAKE UP AMERICA WE ARE HEADED FOR A REAL TRAIN WRECK AND THE DEMOCRATS KNOW IT AND COULD CARE LESS UNTIL IT RIPS THEIR NUTS OUT TOO AND THAT IS OUR ONLY OUT NUT CUTIN TIME AND THEY WILL BAIL ON THEIR OWN. BE READY TO CRUSH THEM NO BAILING THEM OUT.

I used to think, “What’s 4 yrs?” but look what he’d done !!! K. Harris is not favored by either side but the Dems put her in that position. We could find her a breath of fresh air or we may hasten to get her out, also. Maybe none of the replacements could last a year. That in itself could be interesting. Something to think about !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Biden resignation at this time will do absolutely NOTHING to help this country and would most likely throw us all out of the frying pan and into the Fire. The Biden Administration is a total disaster and disgrace, but Harris or Pelosi as POTUS could only make things worse. I think we should hold on until after the 2022 elections. With a conservative Speaker of the House, it would be much safer to remove Biden and Harris both from office. Neither is fit or qualified in any way to be POTUS.

It’s not always about politics. Sometimes it’s about accountability. If office holders stay in office regardless of how badly they perform, nothing will change. By any reasonable standard, Biden should either resign, be forced out through the 25th amendment, or be impeached, and it shouldn’t even be close. The fact that Harris isn’t up to the job, or that we might be flirting with Pelosi becoming president, is beside the point. If they perform badly (and they would), then they should go too. That’s how most of us in the real world are treated.

The major advantage of keeping Biden in office is his continuing damage to the radical left’s agenda by exposing the raw lunacy of their long hidden campaign against all that America once stood and fought for. That being said, until we dismantle the bipartisan feudal system of career politicians inside the Beltway and the special interests that fund and control them, we will see little or no difference in outcomes. Our republic was designed for a free and objectively informed (educated) electorate and citizen statesmanship in our leaders. Not career parasites feeding and buying votes at the public trough decade after decade living like feudal lords and ladies while their miscreant political sewage seeps down into the constituent valleys below…….

True. But the answer to re-establishing “a free and objectively informed (educated) electorate and citizen statesmanship in our leaders” starts with defunding and disbanding the unconstitutional federal Dept. of Education. Trump and Betsy DeVos had started that process. A democrat controlled House and Senate and Jimmy Carter gave us that abomination and our public education quality began to drop almost immediately. Today we have an entire generation who has been brainwashed with socialist/communist indoctrination thanks to public schools. The U. S. Constitution did not make education one of the enumerated responsibilities of the federal government. It is passed the time we return education to the states and We the People where it belongs. In the process, all federal funds for schools should follow the students and parents should be allowed to “shop” for the best quality education they can find within reasonable distance to their homes. Competition between schools for the best quality of education can only benefit our children and future generations.

If the People really thought about it, they would take the time between now and the 2022 Elections, to clean house in their LOCAL Governments, in preparation for the Red Wave to come at the Upper Levels next year. Rebuild the foundation to support the New House.

Absolutely! Those truly concerned about fair and legal elections should volunteer to be poll workers and/or poll watchers and make sure that there is no corruption occurring at the local level. This is a problem to be solved from the bottom up.
Also, any person who is found to be engaged in activities of voter fraud or count manipulation should be arrested, charged, convicted and punished with the highest punishment allowable for their crimes. Voter fraud and/or manipulation is TREASON.

Now that I am talking about Court proceedings, I will continue to say that any judge who rules by bias and/or anti-constitutional ideology should also be removed from office and at the very least barred from practicing law for life.

Why would a Republican want Biden to resign, well maybe it might be because he is a: moron, idiot, halfwit, nincompoop, buffoon, imbecile, ignoramus, dunce, and finally a just a ignorant aging tyrant. But be careful what you wish for, Harris would then be president and she could appoint Pelosi for VP, and that would be the countries greatest nightmare. God help us if that would happen!! 2022 and 2024 cannot happen to soon. MZ

It does not really matter. The dimwitted usurper is signing everything put before him by his handlers. Being and isolationist I generally don’t care what the rest of the world thinks but the current situation is an embarrassment and the U.S. has no credibility on the world stage. As far as Harris/Pelosi they are both bitches and hopefully it would turn into an episode of a new TV reality show called “Elitist Wives”, replete with all of the bitching and backstabbing.

The real question here is can the country survive having Biden continue as president?
If he is kicked out, then Kamala is president and the democrats no longer have a tie-breaking vote in the senate.
Then, the democrats can’t get their bullshit pushed through.

I think it’s worth it

That “no tie-breaking vote” would only last as long as it takes Harris to appoint a new VP. That is too great a risk to take.

Republicans are sure counting on the 2022 election. They better get the issues with the election fixed before that date is upon us. We don’t need another 2020. I’m not aware of any changes made to mail in ballots or voter ID’s. We need strict laws that alleviate all the issues that took place in the 2020 election.

Agree. Both suck! 2×0 is still 0. Didn’t the Biden’s take money from our enemy China. I believe that is what Lt Bub said about the “big guy.” How can we expect him to represent America when he is a turn coat. Both Biden and Harris should have had a full medical and psch exam before running for office-actually this should apply to all politicians. Biden & Harris are destroying our great country! Who the heck voted for these incompetent, delusional people. I still believe the voting was a scam financed and edited by big Tech and Billionaires. What a disgrace for America. As an old Vet tell Joe & Harris I am looking at my watch as well to get him out of office. They do not represent me. They are traitors as far as I am concerned.

Walter, The 2020 Vote was primarily a vote against Trump. Why? I do no know. All I do know is I work with a load of Democratic voters co-workers. I keep my mouth shut as I do not want to get the Boss upset. I listen to Fox mostly, I enjoy Hannity and Laura Ingram very much. But the Democrats listen to CNN and MSNBC, so what am I to do? I love what I do at the company, but I strive to get along with the co-workers.

I hear you. I am almost 69, an old Vet and always stood up and still do stand up for the Red White and Blue. Politically, we kept are mouth shut as well if we did not like the way things were. We just focused on our missions and pressed forward. I primarily listen to News max and occasionally FOX. I do like to listen to Tucker, Laura and Hannity as well. I will not listen to the fake news. Frankly it makes me nauseated. I can’t believe anyone listens to that crap. They are not reporters but highly paid bobbleheads and should be ashamed of themselves. They are getting highly paid to lie and censor factual information to the American people. Don’t you think it is about time we get our heads out of the sand and stand up for our Great Country before we lose it?

The democrat party and Big Tech worked together to STEAL the election. Biden did NOT get the vote count he is credited with. It was manipulation of the vote count via software and the massive number of fraudulent mail in votes that were filled out by criminals and do not have the “chain of custody” necessary to be counted, but got counted anyway by criminals within the voting system. Trump did WIN by a landslide of legal votes. VP Pence should NOT have sanctioned the vote. Either he is a wolf in sheep’s clothing or was threatened or blackmailed into certifying the vote.

Think About it from the Dems perspective…If Harris becomes President, they lose their tie-breaker vote in the Senate and their Marxist agenda is dead….McConnell and Caucus can block any new Vice-Pres……they will prop Biden up any way they can

NO. They do NOT lose their tie-breaker vote. Harris will simply appoint another VP to take her place.

I don’t think it will make much difference whether Jpe Hinin’ Biden resigns or continues to muddle along. This Nation will be the worst position since the Depression years of the ’30’s. I honestly don’t believe Joe Hidin’ Biden is anything more than a puppet now and there is no telling who is pulling the strings. I think that will continue to be the situation even if Camel Hairs is in the role. Whichever it is, the Nation will be much worse off as a result. If American citizens don’t clearly recognize the sad state of affairs resulting from a rigged election, prepare for a Communist government operation for years to come.

Leave him in, but if the Reps win in 2022 and get the house and senate, I certainly hope they take steps to try him for treason, disobeying the constitution, and get them all out of there. They are all guilty of the same.

Biden is just one name on a long list that needs to be tried for Treason. But, first we must regain control of both the House and Senate. Leaving Joe in the White House will keep these issues at the front of the minds of voters. Joe resigning could cause a lot of voters to “forget” that they need to vote against democrats in 2022 and 2024.

Not that his ego would allow it… but, wouldn’t it be GREAT for America if Donald Trump ran for Vice President under Nikki Haley or Kristi Noem following the impeachment trials of Biden and Harris for malfeasance, misfeasance, and possible treason.

Nikki Haley is NOT qualified to be POTUS as she is not a natural born citizen. Yes, she is a citizen born in the USA, but a natural born citizen is one whose parents are also citizens at the time of the citizen’s birth. We let that mistake happen with Obama and will regret it for centuries. We simply cannot make that mistake again. There are several really great and conservative politicians who should not be POTUS for this same reason.

I’ll tell you one good reason for getting Biden out. His replacement, Harris would be as bad or worse. But it would also eliminate the tie-breaking vote in the Senate, so if the GOP would stick together they can stop completely some of the worst legislation. There would be no VP until after the 2024 election. No election fraud bill rammed through, no court packing, no 3.5 Trillion spending bill loaded with pork, etc. The Democrats could be stymied. Today, with the VP as a Senate tie-breaker, the Democrats hold majorities in both houses of Congress. Should Biden be eliminated and Harris take his place, the Democrats lose that majority in the Senate.And that’s a very big deal.

Much can be said. First, thanks for the up to date reporting on events as they happen. Second, it is hard to know where to begin. I’ll keep it short. Biden is good for the Republicans. However, have the Republicans reformed enough from when they held all three branches in government? I rather doubt it. They are not cohesive, they do not have a strategy, they balk at following through with voters who voted for them to bring conservative change to Washington, they are afraid of the press and of the Democrats. They have never sat in the steamroller like the Democrats. I believe they are weak, and as such, my confidence in them does not exist. They have not proven themselves as a trustworthy allies. Who is left to vote for?

Today, an Article V Convention of the States is being formed and a number of states have joined. That convention allows the people, completely outside of Washington and the courts, to develop, pass, and ratify constitutional amendments such as term limits for congress. The founders gave us that means to take control away from Washington and put it in the hands of the people. It’s time it is used! My state, Louisiana, has already signed on for it. Push your state legislators to do so as well.

The proposed amendments publicly advertised as the agenda for the CoS will NOT fix the problem. Term Limits will only create a whole new batch of problems. Proponents of term limits have failed to think through the whole problem logically. There are very good reasons why the Founding Fathers did not put term limits in the Constitution. They were not left out by accident. It was intentional. True statesmen are few and far between. When you find one, you keep him/her as long as you can. A continuing stream of rookies in the House and Senate will lack necessary experience to fully understand the future ramifications of the laws they pass.

Maybe they have a hidden agenda? When is the last time you saw them, as a Party, go to the mat for anything. Could it be that there are some or many in the party that are really connected to the deep state? If they are not willing willing to go to the mat for how do you tell what they stand for? Is there just one large party divided by two labels, R&D, Red and Blue? There has to be a precise and logical answer once the facts are known. Since they didn’t protect president Trump how can you tell their leader with him of office?
