Anyone with any semblance of sanity wanted him gone. The Twitter

tantrums, the agonizing attempts at being presidential, the hatred,

the rage, the buffoonery, all that was the painful joke that was

Trump in the Oval Office. Let alone Biden, a rusted rake would have

been a better choice than man-baby Donald. He had to go, but what

now of Biden as president? How is the progressive future set to

fare under his tutelage?

Biden is of course, bar one huge exception, the walking, talking

embodiment of traditional American presidents – male, white and the

wrong side of 60. In other words – same old, same old. Sure, Biden

may work hard for the US to reclaim its prior position as leader of

the free world, but still, he believes that cannabis is a “gateway

drug.” Biden is as Biden does – a pragmatic, centrist, career

politician, firmly in hock to corporate America. And never overlook

how he has previously rubbed shoulders with racist politicians in the

past, all in the name of “compromise.”

Well, compromise be damned. Like an avalanche that has started

and cannot now be stopped, Biden is increasingly becoming unglued.

Remember back in the presidential debates with Trump how he would

on occasion lose track of what he was saying, meandering into a

morass of visible confusion and concern? Well, that mental decline

isn’t going anywhere soon. Far from it – it’s seemingly getting worse.

Point in question? Biden’s beyond bizarre recent press conference

that saw him serve up a select few answers in a whispered, kind of

creepy, who’s he kinda talking to way. Was it an attempt at humor?

Well, didn’t hear of too many belly-laughs or broken ribs. Was it an

attempt at being unique, a break from all presidential things prior?

Well, Trump was that and look how that ended up. No, something is

not right with Biden and it’s starting to peel at the cracks.

Thankfully, we have Vice-President Kamala Harris waiting in the non-

whispering wings. If anything, she is the outspoken, non-white, non-

male, non-elderly president that the US so badly needs. In a time

when we have witnessed Derek Chauvin get a luke-warm sentence for

the brutal execution of George Floyd in full view of the world, race

as an issue in the US remains as high profile as it ever was before.

The continual loop of American history that continues to oppress

Black citizens of the supposed “Great Republic” is still firmly stuck,

and firmly so. Depressingly, it’s as if the Civil War and the Civil

Rights movement never actually happened.

Harris is everything that Biden is not. She is tech friendly, erudite and

in tune with progressive America. Her mercurial mind makes “honest

Joe” look as outdated as he really is. But it’s not just that. The

country needs a president that truly reflects the America of the

twenty-first century – diverse, cosmopolitan, and anything but white,

male and old. Harris checks all those boxes, and more. As much as

it would make Trumper / Republican heads implode (which is always a

good thing), it’s what the rest of the country not only want, they

yearn for.

Biden has already suggested that he is going to run for re-election in

2024. That is a recipe for disaster and is an open door, God forbid,

for Trump to claw his way back into the White House for four more

tortuous years. Plus, if Biden continues to go down the road of

increasingly eliciting the response of “what did I just see?” (as he

caused many on the right to splutter in indignation about) then we

can expect nothing less than a Republican president come 2024,

Trump or another bigot.

Harris undoubtedly needs to be on the presidential ticket, in primary

position, NOW.

As we know, the US is crying out, bursting at

the lungs, for actual change. Is yet another septuagenarian, white

male the answer to that? Of course not. We as a country are now

way beyond that dreary, reactionary, tired old BS. Let the history

of the future run its true course and have Harris take up occupancy

of the White House come 2024.

Nothing more would get in the face

of the bigots, the racists, the sexists and the knuckle-draggers in

general of the conservative right. And after all, Biden may whisper,

but Harris shouts out loud – it’s time for something different,

something like never before.
