(DCWatchdog.com) – Some significant Democrat’s now openly describe Vice President Kamala Harris as a significant liability for the 2024 election, while others have been “leaking their disdain” for her, according to a report.
A Democratic Party fundraiser, John Morgan, has even declared that Harris might become “one of the most hard-hitting arguments against Biden” in 2024, reported leftist newspaper The New York Times, as cited by Fox News.
“Kamala Harris is trying to define her vice presidency. Even her allies are tired of waiting,” reads the headline of the NYT article published on Monday.
According to the report, the fact that Kamala Harris has been a “disappointment” is one of the few things that many Democrats agree on, regardless of whether they are allies or enemies of Biden’s vice president.
“The painful reality for Ms. Harris is that in private conversations over the last few months, dozens of Democrats in the White House, on Capitol Hill and around the nation — including some who helped put her on the party’s 2020 ticket — said she had not risen to the challenge of proving herself as a future leader of the party, much less the country,” The New York Times writes.
It points out that even some Democratic Party figures supporting Harris “confided privately that they had lost hope in her.”
Democrat fundraiser John Morgan told the newspaper that arguments against the vice president would only grow stronger as the president became older. 80-year-old Joe Biden is the oldest president in US history.
“It doesn’t take a genius to say, ‘Look, with his age, we have to really think about this,'” Morgan argued while criticizing Kamala Harris’s performance as vice president.
“I can’t think of one thing she’s done except stay out of the way and stand beside him at certain ceremonies,” he said.
Polling site FiveThirtyEight says that 39% of American voters approve of Harris’s job performance as vice president.
Fox News stresses that the vice president already has a reputation for botched or vague speeches.
She has been blasted on social media for speaking “like a 5-year-old” in one recent speech honoring two former NASA astronauts.
“They strapped into their seats and waited as the tanks beneath filled with tens of thousands of gallons of fuel. And then they launched. Yeah, they did,” Harris said with a laugh.
The vice president was also skewered last year for a video in which she was telling children about space.
“You’re going to literally see the craters on the moon with your own eyes. With your own eyes. I’m telling you, it is going to be unbelievable,” Harris told the kids.
