President Biden’s Delay in Action: Is America’s National Security at Risk?

It’s been three days since news broke of the Chinese spy balloon hovering over the United States and President Joe Biden still hasn’t taken any decisive action. Republicans are calling for his resignation, stating that this delay in response to a clear threat to American national security is proof that Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris are not fit for the job.

Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) has been particularly vocal, taking to Twitter to voice his concerns. He stated, “The catastrophic Chinese Spy Balloon spectacle threatened American families from Alaska to my home community in South Carolina and confirms President Biden and Vice President Harris should resign.”

Wilson previously called for Biden to resign after the Afghanistan withdrawal in 2021, claiming that the President had created a safe haven for terrorists to attack American families. He insists that his demands are not politically motivated, but rather a call for responsibility and capability in a leader.

“It was not political in 2021, when the succeeding President, then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, would have been a Democrat, or now in 2023 with Speaker Kevin McCarthy, a Republican. It is irrelevant for American families which party is in power because the first criteria of a leader should be their capability regardless of party, and sadly Biden and Harris are failures,” Wilson added.

The Chinese spy balloon incident is just the latest in a string of failures by the Biden Administration. Republicans argue that the President’s open border policies are causing major threats to national security, and that when a domestic attack occurs, the President will not know how to adequately respond.

The U.S. fighter jet finally shot down the surveillance balloon just off the coast of South Carolina on Saturday, but the damage has already been done.

The Biden Administration’s handling of the situation has been deemed unacceptable by Republicans and has raised questions about the President’s ability to lead and protect the American people.

In conclusion, Republicans are calling for the resignation of President Biden and Vice President Harris due to their delayed response to the Chinese spy balloon, as well as their handling of other national security threats, such as the open border policies and the Afghanistan withdrawal.

The President’s lack of leadership and capability to protect the American people has been a cause for concern, and the Chinese spy balloon incident is just the latest example.
