With recent declines in President Joe Biden’s polling numbers, Republicans are optimistic about their chances in the 2022 elections
Republicans have been feeling so good lately about their chances next year that they are already talking about what they will do if they take over the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate.
Several Republicans are calling for full investigations over the Afghanistan withdrawal debacle.
One of those is U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla.. He told WBOB Talk Radio in Jacksonville that investigations should start immediately.
“This chaos created by Biden’s misguided and dangerous actions and decisions has led to the loss of 13 American service members and it’s time to launch a much-needed bipartisan investigation, it’s time to get answers,” said Scott.
Scott has also opened the door to using the 25th Amendment against Biden.
“Is Joe Biden capable of discharging the duties of his office or has time come to exercise the provisions of the 25th Amendment?” Scott asked on social media.
More calls for resignation and even impeachment are also on the table.
U.S. Rep. Byron Donald, R-Fla., said that Biden should “resign immediately” following the Afghanistan withdrawal and he has been joined by other Republicans in Congress including U.S. Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla.
Over in the upper chamber, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, said he supports impeaching Biden but U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., has pushed back on that idea.
GOP strategist and campaign adviser Scott Jennings said that Democrats opened a “Pandora’s box” during the Trump years and the GOP is “engaging in the behavior that they’ve been taught by Democrats.”
Besides Afghanistan, Republicans also have their sights over the chaos at the border during Biden’s time in the White House. One GOP consultant told Florida Daily that the comments Republicans make about removing Biden are political rhetoric that plays well with the GOP base.
