Former Obama adviser David Axelrod appeared on CNN this week and talked with Jake Tapper about how things are going for Biden.
It was not a happy discussion. Axelrod admitted that Biden is powerless to do most, if not all, the things that Democrats want him to do right now.
He also conceded that Democrats are likely to lose the House and maybe the Senate in the November midterms.

David Axelrod sees bad news for Biden: Things look ‘out of control and he’s not in command’
During CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper” on Thursday, host Jake Tapper spoke with CNN senior political commentator and former senior Obama advisor David Axelrod, who echoed President Biden’s critics, admitting that things in the country are “out of control” and that Biden is “not in command.”
The discussion between the two centered on how Biden is handling many of the political setbacks that have befallen his party and other forces threatening the country under his watch, including 40-year-high inflation, especially amid criticism from his own party…
Axelrod claimed the impotence Biden has in ending the filibuster just reflects the unfortunate situation he is in as president right now. “I mean this is the lot that Biden finds himself in. There is this sense that things are kind of out of control and he’s not in command. And this lends to that.”
The commentator mentioned how high inflation and high gas prices are making Biden look weak. “Inflation, no one president can control inflation, but it is a gale force wind right now. It’s effecting politics,” Axelrod explained, adding, “You heard him on gas prices today. He talks about the gas tax holiday, but he is not going to get the gas tax holiday and there are a lot of Americans who are skeptical about whether that would help.”

Everyone knows Biden is finished.
It’s so obvious.
