What Will Biden, Democrats Do?

presidential election campaign season

Dick Morris By Wednesday, 31 January 2024 05:57 AM EST Current | Bio | Archive

Joe Biden and the Democrats have to make a move.

He's losing badly in all of the swing states and even trailing in the national popular vote.

The Democratic Party has got to do something.

I see four options:

1.) There could be irregularities.

2.) They could insert Michelle Obama as a candidate at the last minute.

3.) They could incite a national panic about the COVID X strain of the virus.

4.) They could mount the equivalent of an Orange Revolution of mass street demonstrations to stop Trump from taking office.

The one thing they won't do is go quietly in defeat within the current ground rules of our democracy.


Only four of the six key swing states require a photo ID to vote.

Only Georgia and Wisconsin have fool proof of ID laws. Pennsylvania, Arizona and Nevada do not require photo IDs at all.

Michigan does, but a person can circumvent it simply by filling out an affidavit saying in effect: "Sorry, I left my identification  home."

The GOP must attach the highest priority to getting effective photo ID laws passed at least in Arizona and New Hampshire where we have Republican majorities in the state legislature.

In Arizona, with a Democratic governor and a Republican legislature, the GOP should refuse to pass a state budget unless a strong photo ID law is passed.

In Pennsylvania, where Republicans only control the upper house of the legislature, they must make a similar stand.

Rather than talk about a broad panoply of electoral reforms, Republicans should zero in on requiring photo ID. With the millions of new residents who have poured over our open border in the past three years, the potential for irregularities is enormous.

Michelle Obama

The Democrats may proceed with their primaries pretending that Biden is their candidate. Then, weeks before the convention, they might well push Biden aside and nominate Michelle Obama instead.

They can't nominate a white candidate like Gov. Gavin Newsom, D-Calif., because Blacks will not let them pass over Vice President Kamala Harris for a white candidate.

But ... there would be no objection if they choose Michelle Obama instead.

Michelle would have instant star power and lots would love the idea of the first Black woman president.

But, the more people get to know her positions on things like reparations, no bail, open borders, racial separatism, Critical Race Theory (CRT) and affirmative action, the former first lady will wear badly.

However, a last-minute surprise nomination might deny us the opportunity to get these issues out.

So we need to flag the idea that she might run early on to deter or defeat her candidacy by planting such issue land mines in her path.

Pandemic Panic

With the new strain of coronavirus, one more communicable and with a higher fatality rate than COVID-19, Democrats could attempt to stop in-person voting, lock down our society, and replay their scenario of 2020. (Remember that COVID-19 first arrived in America around this time in 2020.)

The new international treaty, to be signed in May, that gives the World Health Organization (WHO) power to declare pandemics and to prescribe measures to deal with them, makes such a plan become more feasible.

Republicans and conservatives must be on their guard against this maneuver.

The focus Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., and others are bringing to how COVID-19 began, the dangers of change of function research without safety controls, and the futility of lockdowns, can help us guard against such a ploy.

An Orange Revolution

Democrats are already trying to whip up national hysteria about the 2024 elections and the danger to democracy supposedly posed by the reelection of Donald Trump.

Such incendiary tactics, which include the Jan. 6 prosecutions, may be the precursor of a master plan for an American version of the Orange Revolution that toppled the communist/corrupt government in Ukraine in 2004.

By using massive, months-long street demonstrations to paralyze major cities like Washington, D.C., and New York, the left may try extra-legal and unconstitutional means to stop a Trump inauguration.

Biden could use his control of the military to make such a "soft" revolution logistically possible.

More likely the Democrats will try all four measures sequentially.

If they can't, through irregularities, win election 2024, they may move to Michelle Obama.

If that fails, they could attempt a pandemic panic, or an Orange Revolution.

But rest assured they will never go quietly into the night.
