There have been a few reports that the Biden administration’s morale is really low.
First off, there is a lot of malcontent inside the administration over Biden’s support for Israel. Recently in Medium a group of anonymous campaign workers wrote a letter demanding Biden change his policy.
So what are they going to do?
Jeff Zients, who’s very well-to-do and works in the administration, is going to throw an off-campus party for hundreds of staffers.
The severity of their moral issues was realized when several – now reported about a dozen – unhappy staffers issued an anonymous letter telling Joe they disapprove of his Israel policy.
Now, unlike the anonymous cowards who wrote the letter, Tariq Habash, special assistant in the Education Department’s Office of Planning, Evaluation and Policy Development, has decided to resign.
“I cannot stay silent as this administration turns a blind eye to the atrocities committed against innocent Palestinian lives, in what leading human rights experts have called a genocidal campaign by the Israeli government,” Tariq Habash, special assistant in the Education Department’s Office of Planning, Evaluation and Policy Development, wrote in his resignation letter to Education Secretary Miguel Cardona.
What’s interesting is that the dozen or so Biden staffers used similar language in their letter.
“As your staff, we believe it is both a moral and electoral imperative for you to publicly call for a cessation of violence,” they wrote.
“We joined this campaign because the values that you – and we – share are ones worth fighting for. Justice, empathy, and our belief in the dignity of human life is the backbone of not only the Democratic Party, but of the country,” they added. “However, your administration’s response to Israel’s indiscriminate bombing in Gaza has been fundamentally antithetical to those values – and we believe it could cost you the 2024 election.”
The letter also said that staffers and volunteers are quitting in droves.
In the letter, the staffers write that they’ve seen “volunteers quit in droves.”
“It is not enough to merely be the alternative to Donald Trump. The campaign has to shift the feeling in the pits of voters’ stomachs, the same feeling that weighs on us every day as we fight for your reelection. The only way to do that is to call for a ceasefire,” the letter reads.
Translation: Volunteers are not happy with the one-sided devices rhotic Biden is using to describe Trump supporters when under his leadership they could at least afford groceries.
They think a party is going to fix all this?
