Joe Biden formally announces intention to run in 2024

 April 25, 2023

Even though he's easily one of the most unpopular and ineffective presidents in our lifetime, if not all of U.S. history, President Joe Biden announced early Wednesday morning that he intends to make another run in 2024. 

According to Fox News, the announcement came the way of an early morning video titled "Freedom."

Not surprisingly, Biden's announcement video opened with scenes from the Jan. 6 incursion of the U.S. Capitol, which is the same scenery one will very likely find in a number of election-related videos on the left.

Biden also used many of the same talking points from material from his 2020 campaign.

The video

The elderly president, many of whom believe is not cognitively sound enough to run the country as is, let alone for another five years, was uninspiring in his attempt to convince Democratic voters to back him once again, even though he's failing to capture their interests, according to many polls.

"This is not a time to be complacent. That’s why I’m running for re-election. Because I know America. I know we are good and decent people. And I know we are still a country that believes in honesty and respect, and treating each other with dignity."

The president added: "That we’re a nation where we give hate no safe harbor. And we believe that everyone is equal, and that everyone should be given a fair shot to succeed in this country."

"Freedom. Personal freedom is fundamental to who we are as Americans. There’s nothing more important. Nothing more sacred," Biden said in the video. "That’s been the work of my first term: To fight for our Democracy. This shouldn’t be a red or blue issue."

He added: "When I ran for President four years ago, I said we are in a battle for the soul of America – and we still are. The question we are facing is whether in the years ahead we have more freedom or less freedom, more rights or fewer."

The campaign team

Biden has hired a number of high-profile politicians and industry leaders to be co-chairs for his national campaign.

Fox noted the following people were announced as co-chairs: "Sens. Tammy Duckworth, Chris Coons, Reps. Lisa Blunt-Rochester, Jim Clyburn, Veronica Escobar, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg."

The outlet added:

The campaign also announced Campaign Manager Julie Chávez Rodríguez and Principal Deputy Campaign Manager Quentin Fulks in their respective roles.

Only time will tell if those people ever get a chance to work on the campaign, as many believe Biden will somehow figure out a way to bow out, given his current and obvious poor health condition. He also announced Vice President Kamala Harris as his running mate, so that's another hurdle, as she's more unpopular than him.
