Reliable Obama ‘wingman’ defends Biden coup: ‘We are a responsible political party’

Former President Barack Obama’s onetime top cop, perhaps best remembered for gun-running, had some thoughts on the incumbent’s continued candidacy as a “responsible political party.”

Since President Joe Biden’s debate disaster, a veritable “Game of Thrones” has played out among Democratic Party power brokers and wannabes, jockeying for position no matter who comes out on top. Addressing the schism itself, former Attorney General Eric Holder took to X Friday with an attempt to downplay the disorder.

“Cut the nonsense about Democrats not being ‘strong’ like Republicans because we are now engaged in a difficult determination about who our nominee for President should be,” Obama’s “wingman” expressed. “It shows that we are a responsible political party and not a pathetic, dangerous cult…That’s true strength.”

The family of killed U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry would likely have something different to say about the “Fast and Furious” former AG who avoided responsibility for gun-running to Mexican cartels during the Obama administration.

They also wouldn’t be alone as leftists belied Holder’s take that they weren’t a “pathetic, dangerous cult” and sounded off against the suggestion that the party should make any moves that would buck the selection from voters who’d been gaslit on Biden’s mental acuity.

BlazeTV host Jason Whitlock added another dimension to the Obama officials take as he snarked, “Exactly. The Party should determine its presidential candidate, not the voters. This is very responsible of you to circumvent the will of the people.”

“It’s important,” Whitlock continued, “to hand power completely over to a small group of elites. Thank you, Eric!”

The commentator’s post garnered added contempt for the “corrupt criminal” and the “We know better than you” types who many believed had been running the current administration like a puppet show from the beginning.

While Obama himself had brushed off Biden’s performance as a “bad debate,” other figures from his administration like onetime adviser David Axelrod had heaped on to the conversation about how dire the situation was and posted the same day how Biden “is dangerously out-of-touch with the concerns people have about his capacities moving forward and his standing in this race. Four years ago at this time, he was 10 points ahead of Trump. Today, he is six points behind.”

In addition to a planned virtual meeting from Democrats Sunday led by House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (NY), it had been reported that Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, was attempting to bring together a group from his party to urge Biden to step aside Monday.

For his trouble, Warner took a swipe from the president who claimed, “he also tried to get the nomination too,” during Biden’s interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, as well as what appeared to be an extortion threat from author Don Winslow who cautioned Warner against going down that road, “Think about it very carefully.”
