White House Staff to Bail on Biden as Midterms Near

'We’ve got to stop fooling ourselves here... '

(John RansomHeadline USA) In what’s shaping up to be an Armageddon year for the Democrats in the 2022 midterm elections, the Biden White House is preparing for multiple staff to defect.

Senior Biden adviser Cedric Richmond said that he’s bolting the White House for the Democrat National Committee, according to Fox News.

Richmond is under a little pressure after it was revealed in an upcoming book by two New York Times reporters that he called Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow “Squad” members “f***ing idiots”.

The book also claimed that White House Counselor Steve Ricchetti said the big problem with progressives is they don’t understand why they lose, according to the Daily Mail.

So far, turnover in the White House under Biden has been relatively low, but given the outlook for the 2022 midterms that number could go up substantially, according to figures kept by the Brookings about presidential staff turnover.

For example, Bill Clinton faced just 11 percent turnover in his first year, but that figure climbed to 27 percent in year number two after his disastrous defeat in the midterm elections, said a chart of the Brookings numbers.

So far the highest level defection by the Biden administration comes from White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who is leaving the Oval Office to go work at MSNBC.

The latest polling shows that 55 percent of Republicans are very enthusiastic about voting in the midterms versus just 35 percent of Democrats, according to a poll released by ABC News/Ipsos.

“We’ve got to stop fooling ourselves here,” said one top Democrat advisor, reported Politico, who said that inflation concerns, problems with the economy, war in Ukraine, and the general unpopularity of the Biden administration, make defeat by Dems not just possible but probable.

In December, media reports indicated that Vice President Kamala Harris’ staff was in total meltdown mode already, leading to speculation that she might not be on the presidential ticket in 2024, assuming Biden runs again.

Given the disastrous first year and a half of the Biden administration, it’s actually surprising that more heads have not rolled inside the White House

Maybe the relative complacency of the staff is the strongest indication that the White House isn’t quite up to the task of running the world’s most competitive country.
