“I believe he thinks he’s the only one who can beat Trump. I don’t think he thinks there’s anyone in the Democratic party who can beat Trump and that’s the biggest factor”
A new report circulated widely on Tuesday said that Biden has once again confirmed that he is running for president in 2024. Have you noticed that one of these stories comes out every few months? It’s almost like Biden is trying to reassure Democrats.
This time, Obama was the excuse for the report.
The Hill reported:
Biden has told Obama he’s running again
President Biden has told former President Obama that he is planning to run for reelection in 2024, two sources tell The Hill.
The admission to Obama is the latest indication that Biden is likely to run for a second term, something the president has spoken about publicly.
During a press conference in Brussels last month, he told reporters he’d be “very fortunate” to run against his rival in the 2020 election, former President Trump.
“[Biden] wants to run and he’s clearly letting everyone know,” said one of the two sources familiar with the conversations between Obama and Biden.
The source also said that Biden, despite his faltering approval ratings, remains the most likely Democratic candidate to defeat Trump. This was a key part of Biden’s salesmanship to voters as he sought support for his 2020 bid — and a big reason primary voters rallied to him in South Carolina and Super Tuesday states where he sealed his status as the Democratic front-runner.
“I believe he thinks he’s the only one who can beat Trump. I don’t think he thinks there’s anyone in the Democratic party who can beat Trump and that’s the biggest factor,” the source familiar with the Obama-Biden talks said.
It has to be true. Biden would never lie to Obama. Besides, “the Source” confirmed it.
This is the Biden administration sending a message to Democrats and the media that all is well.
The great Ace of Spades offered his opinion on this:
Biden is obviously lying. He wants the story that he’s “running again” out there so he is not perceived as even weaker due to lame duck status than he already is due to his status as being massively unpopular and a failed president makes him. He wants people to think that if they don’t support him, why, in 2025, he’ll have a list of names and he’ll be rewarding friends and punishing enemies, Jack! …
Biden is one of the Democrats I’m 100% certain Trump can defeat, because he’s a proven failure. He is, as Trump will correctly say, a “disaster” and a “loser.” And also a “mental invalid.”
It should also be noted that Biden routinely plants this “I’m running again” story in the press. His communications people have planted the story in November 2021, December 2021, March 2022, and now in April 2022.

I won't believe it until I see him on the trail. https://t.co/2OPy7VDLwX

If Biden actually does run again in 2024, his campaign is not going to be able to hide him in the basement for 12 months. He is going to have to actually hit the trail, make appearances, and do events, which is exhausting.
