Acc.to Fox News, The liberal media wants you to believe that the role of White House chief of staff is a fleeting one, but make no mistake, this is one of the most powerful positions in Washington. And the Democrats have just pulled off yet another smooth transition, quietly leaking the news that Ron Klain is stepping down and being replaced by former Covid czar Jeff Zients.
But let’s not be fooled by the media’s portrayal of Klain as a well-known insider who wields his influence behind the scenes. The truth is, he’s a shrewd political operative who knows how to work the press and has been a key player in the Biden White House from the very beginning.
He’s been working tirelessly for three years, since the campaign, and takes pride in the fact that he’s lasted longer than any other Democratic president’s first chief of staff in more than half a century.
Klain’s departure comes at a high point, having helped Biden pass a raft of bipartisan legislation and survive a midterm election in which Democrats held the Senate.
But make no mistake, this is not a sign of success, it’s a sign of a White House in chaos. The fact that Klain is stepping down, and that there was no public competition for the position, is a clear indication that the Biden administration is in disarray.
Now, enter Jeff Zients. The liberal media would have you believe that he’s a low-key bureaucrat who shuns the spotlight, but the truth is, he’s a wealthy, insider who has little political experience and is closely tied to Klain.
He’s also an Obama administration veteran, and has run Biden’s transition office and served on the National Economic Council. But despite his insider status, even Washington pundits might pass him on the street without recognizing him.
It’s clear that Zients will be a mere facilitator, a problem solver who prefers to keep things simple by relentlessly focusing on the few things that matter. But make no mistake, he’s a business executive who knows how to get things done. And that’s exactly what this White House needs.
But let’s not forget, the Democrats are the party of scandal. From Sherman Adams, Dwight Eisenhower’s top aide, who resigned after accepting gifts from a businessman, to H.R. Haldeman, Richard Nixon’s top aide, who went to prison during Watergate. And let’s not forget, John Sununu, George H.W. Bush’s chief of staff, who resigned during controversies over expensive government trips that were also personal in nature.
It’s clear that the Democrats are the party of scandal and chaos. And with the recent mishandling of classified documents by the Biden White House, it’s clear that the Democrats are not fit to govern. It’s time for the American people to demand better from their leaders. It’s time for a Republican president in the White House.
