Biden faces 2024 opposition from an unlikely source: ‘Don’t Run Joe’

A progressive group linked to Senator Bernie Sanders, Don’t Run Joe, has officially launched its new campaign imploring President Biden to step aside in 2024.

Grassroots organization, RootsAction, formally announced their new efforts just one day after the midterm elections.

“It’s clear that Joe Biden should not be the party’s presidential nominee in 2024. With so much at stake, renominating Biden would be a tragic mistake,” the group stated on Twitter.

While Republicans will be sharing a common aim with the organization, it doesn’t appear likely they’ll be allying ahead of the 2024 election as the campaign’s website refers to the threat of a “neofascist GOP.”

“In 2024 the United States will face the dual imperatives of preventing a Republican takeover of the White House and advancing a truly progressive agenda. The stakes could not be higher. The threat of a neofascist GOP has become all too obvious. Bold and inspiring leadership from the Oval Office will be essential,” Don’t Run Joe’s statement reads.

The group laments that Biden’s “moderate” policies and leadership have neither been bold nor inspiring.”Unfortunately, President Biden has been neither bold nor inspiring. And his prospects for winning re-election appear to be bleak. With so much at stake, making him the Democratic Party’s standard-bearer in 2024 would be a tragic mistake,” they continued.

Don’t Run Joe cited several issues as areas in which President Biden has been critically ineffective.

“‘Moderate’ policies have failed to truly address such pressing concerns as the climate emergency, voting rights, student debt, health care, corporate price-gouging, and bloated military spending in tandem with anemic diplomacy.”

They claim that Biden won the 2020 election with the assistance of progressive organizations like theirs in swing states, and if the current president runs it will be without their support and with their protest. They insist that the incumbent president does not inherently have the right to run for re-election and that if Biden does intend to run, he will have a “fight on his hands.”

“A president is not his party’s king, and he has no automatic right to renomination. Joe Biden should not seek it. If he does, he will have a fight on his hands,” the statement concluded, boldly using what many on the left consider to be violent rhetoric these days.

Digital ads have already begun to circulate in New Hampshire, the site of the earliest presidential primary, but will be rolling out nationwide in the months to come. Biden, who recently earned the Washington Post’s ‘Bottomless Pinocchio’, has an approval rating that is currently a dismal 39% according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll. Such low numbers may lead to more unrest from inside the president’s own party. As for now, RootsAction is sponsoring the campaign but expects more organizations to sign on in the near future.

The launch makes good on the group’s promises from the summer of this year. RootsAction told Fox News Digital in July that their intention was to stop Biden from running, and that they were expecting “many allied groups and notable individuals” to join them in their campaign. “We object to Biden running in 2024 because of his job performance as president,” RootsAction cofounder Jeff Cohen told Fox News Digital at the time.

The group shared a statement from New Hampshire Democratic State Representative Sherry Frost that declared her lack of confidence in the current president.

“While I appreciate the many good things that Biden has proposed – specifically, student debt relief and the American Rescue Plan –  I am not confident that Joe Biden is the leader we need to take us into the next term. I am eager to support a candidate who understands the fatal dysfunction in our economy and is willing to hold the ultra-wealthy individuals and corporations to their obligations to the rest of us, who is going to actively champion meaningful civil rights and voting protections, and who will spearhead a shift away from the military-industrial complex and oligarchy and toward a culture that works for the most vulnerable of us first,” the statement read.

“I am not confident that Biden is that candidate, and while I appreciate his rescuing us from another Trump term, I believe we need someone else to champion the big and systemic changes we need to continue to strive toward our more perfect union,” Frost added.
