As scenes unfolding across Afghanistan prove, Joe Biden’s presidency has been fatal for people around the world. It may also have terminated his party’s hold on power come next November.
In party strategy sessions, politicians’ briefings, and power lunches across the nation’s capital, Democrats are reviewing the footage, and they see their political lives coming to an end.

Word is leaking out—and the Democrats are panicked that 2022 is going to be as big a political bloodbath as the carnage unfolding in Kabul.
“The early indicators that showed Democrats poised to make big gains in Congress four years ago now point the other direction, suggesting that the narrow 220-212 Democratic House majority is in serious danger,” wrote Alex Seitz-Wald at Yahoo! News.
That’s bad news for the Democrats, but they expected that.
The president’s party almost always loses seats in the midterm elections. Since World War II, the average loss is 26 seats in the House of Representatives and four in the Senate…and recently, it’s been worse for Democrats.
The last two Democratic presidents — Barack Obama and Bill Clinton — lost an average of 49 seats in their midterm elections (except for 1998, which came during the impeachment hearings and a booming economy).
Democrats do worse than Republicans, because their far-Left party base radicalizes the country way more than the American people will tolerate…and the midterm elections are their revenge.
Joe Biden—with his opposition to the XL Pipeline, massive inflation, flip-flops on the COVID-19 vaccine, open borders, tax hikes, and multi-trillion-dollar spending sprees—was already set up for similar losses.
Now, imagine you’re a congressman who knows all this. Then, you turn on your TV and see the United States lose a war in real time on TV.

You see hundreds of Afghans flooding the U.S. military airport at Kabul, begging soldiers to cram them into the plane and take them to America.
You see desperate Afghans tie themselves to airplanes until they fall to their deaths. You hear that when those planes land, one of them—a Boeing C-17 cargo plane—found human body parts inside the wheel well.
You see CNN—part of the liberal media propaganda machine—telling the world that the Taliban is forcing American women to wear Islamic head coverings and treating them with no respect, live on the air.
You read that the Taliban is going door to door to hunt down every Afghani “traitor” who helped American soldiers over the last 20 years and are already disarming people.
After that, you turn your TV over to ABC, and you see former Clinton hack George Stephanopoulos ask President Joe Biden point blank, “So you don’t think this could have been handled—this exit could have been handled better in any way?” Do you think you made “no mistakes?”
You hear Biden say that he has “prepared for every contingency”…and think, “This is the best they could do?”

Then you pour another Alka-Seltzer as you watch 2020 slipping into Republican hands.
“The president said that they prepared for every contingency, but they obviously had not prepared for this one,” said Rep. Seth Moulton, D-Mass., taking a shot at his own president.
Moulton ran for president, very unsuccessfully, in 2020…but he’s not the only Democrat edging away from Joe Biden.
Some just threw in the towel—like Rep. Ron Kind of Minnesota, whose rural district has gotten redder and redder by the year. Kind just retired, setting the stage for the GOP to flip another blue seat.
Two Democrats just across the state border from each other—Ohio’s Tim Ryan and Pennsylvania’s Conor Lamb—decided not to try to win their pro-Trump House districts next year and tried to run as “moderates” for U.S. Senate.
In Florida, the Democrats seem ready to say their best hope of getting rid of rising Republican star Gov. Ron DeSantis is to nominate a former Republican. Charlie Crist had been governor, and a Republican, before DeSantis won office in 2018.

“Rep. Cheri Bustos of Illinois, the most recent chairwoman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is retiring from a district Trump won, and Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick of Arizona is opting against another run in a district that leans only narrowly blue,” wrote Seitz-Wald.
Under the best of circumstances, the Democrats would almost sure to lose control of Congress in the 2022 midterm elections. But thanks to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, these are not the best of circumstances—for politicians, or American or Afghani citizens.
