Texas Senator Ted Cruz has once again caused controversy by suggesting that former President Barack Obama may be the real force guiding the actions of President Joe Biden. Here’s the full story.
These statements came as a response to comments made by former Obama adviser David Axelrod, who raised the possibility that Biden might reconsider running for president in the 2024 election.
Obama Has Been the Person Pulling the Strings
In a recent appearance on FOX & Friends, Senator Cruz shared his belief that Biden is not the one in charge of the country.
He said, “I think that’s very serious. It’s been my view for a long time that Barack Obama has been the person pulling the strings behind Joe Biden. Joe Biden is clearly not up to it. I think Obama is the one making the decisions and [David] Axelrod is Obama’s right hand.”
Democrats Are Getting Scared
He continued, “And we’ve seen for the last six months, more and more warning signs that the Democrats are getting scared. Biden is not up to it. Even with his diminished capacity, they don’t think he can do it.”
Furthermore, Cruz added, “I predicted that there was a very real chance the Democrats would jettison Joe Biden and parachute in Michelle Obama and that they’d do it at the convention next summer. I think the chances of that are rising every day.”
Cruz first shared this prediction on his podcast, “Verdict with Ted Cruz,” three months ago, and he continues to believe that this scenario could become a reality.
Too Late for Change
David Axelrod, a prominent figure from the Obama administration, added to the ongoing speculation by tweeting his concerns about Biden’s candidacy.
He shared that it might be too late to change candidates and highlighted the potential impact of such a decision within the Democratic Party.
Trump Is Dangerous
Axelrod wrote, “The President is justly proud of his accomplishments. Trump is a dangerous, unhinged demagogue whose brazen disdain for the rules, norms, laws, and institutions of democracy should be disqualifying. But the stakes of miscalculation here are too dramatic to ignore.”
Biden Will Be the Nominee of the Democratic Party
“Only Joe Biden can make this decision. If he continues to run, he will be the nominee of the Democratic Party. What he needs to decide is whether that is wise; whether it’s in HIS best interest or the country’s?” he added.
Michelle Obama May Come In
These remarks come in a political climate characterized by intense partisan division and ongoing debates over the effectiveness of the Biden administration.
Cruz previously voiced his concerns about the possibility of Democrats seeking an alternative candidate and suggested that Michelle Obama might be viewed as a savior within the party.
According to Cruz, every time a Democrat or a member of the press points out issues with Joe Biden’s presidency, the likelihood of replacing him with Michelle Obama increases.
It Was All Obama’s Design
Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “The real question is who was running Obama’s presidency. Then you’ll start seeing the big oligarchy picture.”
Another user added, “Obama’s fingerprints are all over this. Why do you think he picked the most corrupt elder statesman to be his VP? It was all by design. Biden is having a hard time walking up and down the stairs, let alone running the country”
A third user commented, “Not so secretly. All you needed to do was pay attention. Most of his senior advisors have long histories with Obama.”
