A sense of urgency hangs over the White House, and Biden is facing a crisis in many ways

Read Time:5 Minute, 38 Second

Biden believes that the coronavirus pandemic he has tamed this spring continues to deny Americans a return to normal life and disrupts economic recovery by suppressing job growth, even though it has contributed to higher-than-expected inflation. As tensions with China have increased, the distressing withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan has also raised doubts about his international leadership.
All of this has eroded the president’s public status, slowed the momentum of his domestic agenda in Congress, and made the 78-year-old president appear inefficient. Capitol Hill leaders insist that they can unite with parties that support his infrastructure, social policy, and climate change goals by the end of this month, but anxious Biden aides hope to get results faster.

A senior government official told CNN, “We will end it this week, or deploy a new method” to accomplish something.

The impatience of the White House is due to the specter of losing the ability to achieve Biden’s tenure balance goals. The Democratic political strategist has warned that the collapse of his legislative agenda will eliminate the party’s hard struggle to protect its thin House and Senate majority in next year’s midterm elections. The president’s senior aides knew that time was not on their side.

Two months of hard work made Biden’s public approval rating below the 50% mark that he had consistently exceeded in the first few months of his tenure. By historical standards, the decline is not significant.

But the partisan polarization in contemporary politics has almost never produced widespread poll swings. Biden’s decline so far-from a low in the 1950s to the mid-1940s-if it continues until next year, it may be different in the case of the president’s tailwind and the fierce Republican attack on the Democratic candidate.

When CNN’s Katelan Collins commented on how Biden views the series of challenges facing his administration, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki downplayed concerns within the White House.

“Even if things become challenging, we won’t be too frustrated here. Our point of view and his point of view are to continue to move forward and solve the challenges facing the American people,” Psaki said.

A short-term decline in approval ratings and even the failure of Congress will not be doomed to the presidency. Bill Clinton won re-election in 1996 after the Republicans swept both houses of Congress two years ago, leaving him in trouble. Barack Obama, with Biden as vice president, won a second term after the overwhelming advantage of the Republican Party promoted by the Tea Party in 2010.

But regaining a foothold depends on Biden’s restoration of public confidence in him for the job. Even not just through his economic agenda, it also means consolidating his cornerstone assets: after the turmoil and hatred during Donald Trump’s presidency, he firmly believes that his continued focus on economic relief and Covid-19 vaccination is growing Restore calm, stability and normalcy.

This weakening of power highlights the importance of a judgment, from the legislative strategy to the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, which may be more politically significant than any other judgment he made this year: the decision to slow down vaccination requirements to avoid angering the Republic. Party opponents.

When stubborn resistance to voluntary vaccination prompted the White House to perform its mission in midsummer, the Delta variant had begun to obscure the light at the end of the long pandemic tunnel.

“The Biden administration should adopt vaccination certificates from the beginning,” said Dr. Leana Wen, a former Baltimore public health director and now a CNN health analyst. “We will be in a very different place now.”

The hope for Biden and his party now is that his main challenge may have an inflection point.

In recent weeks, Biden’s rigorous practice of vaccinating the government and private companies has begun to bear fruit. The decline in the number of infections, hospitalizations, and deaths suggests that the Delta variant may follow the same decline cycle as the earlier Covid surge.

Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former director of the US Food and Drug Administration, even speculated that the “pandemic phase” will end at the end of the year.

At the same time, although Congress has been adjourned, the recognition that the Democrats will sink or swim together has created a movement in the legislative negotiations behind the scenes. The current discussion revolves around the $2 trillion Democratic economic plan. Biden is paired with the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill passed by the Senate this summer.

A letter publicly released by Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi on Monday hinted at the resolution of a key decision-as the ambitions of the Democratic-only package diminish and focus on providing adequate funding for fewer goals, Instead of spreading funds over more goals.

Negotiators are touting positive signals from Sens. Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Joe Manchin of West Virginia. These two stubborn Democratic senators are still the biggest headaches for Biden and party leaders.

“The people who are doing this work are optimistic,” the Democratic leadership aide in the House of Representatives told CNN. “Both said in private that they wanted to support the second bill.”

“We will have a bill,” a Democratic senator added, although reaching a compromise may not be as fast as the White House hopes. “I think the weekend is unlikely and unnecessary.”

Democratic Virginia governor candidate Terry McAuliffe, like the Biden team, urgently needs to show his ability to govern. His close battle with Republican opponent Glen Youngkin (Glenn Youngkin) ended in three weeks.

“This is my message to everyone in Washington: passing this infrastructure bill. We are desperate in the states,” McAuliffe told CNN’s Dana Bash in his “State of the Union address” on Sunday.

“We need to fix these roads and bridges…. To enter a room, this is what we need, and this is its cost. It shouldn’t be that difficult.”

Democratic political strategists do not see this week as an important milestone in 2022. They say the important thing is to succeed when the midterm campaign really starts.

“The situation doesn’t look very good now,” admits Mark Melman, a leading Democratic strategist. “But things have changed. If by next year the pandemic is receding and the Democrats look like legislative geniuses, passing two transformative bills by a small majority, and money flows to the economy, the prospects will be brighter.”

However, for the White House, which is under increasing pressure, the pace of change is not fast enough. This prompted Biden’s assistants to look for potential Plan B.

When asked what would happen if the Democrats could not reach a compromise agreement this week, the senior government official only said: “Let’s see what happens next.”
