The White House in Disarray as They Contemplate Changes

A new report has been released about an upcoming Cabinet overhaul being looked at by White House officials after the November midterm elections.

In the report by Axios, White House officials (it clearly says White House officials, not Biden) are looking into the possibility of a “broad reorganization of President Biden's economic team.” This is the beginning of an overhaul which is being conducted by White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain, who has former officials from the administration Jeff Zients and Natalie Quillian creating lists of candidates who are eligible for Cabinet and top administrative positions.

Some of the people that are being cited as being most likely to lose their jobs include Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and Brian Deese, director of the National Economic Council.

The decision is not final and is expected to hinge on the outcome of the midterm elections, sources familiar with the matter told Axios. Yellen’s successor will need to be confirmed by the Senate, posing a challenge if the Republican Party takes control of the upper chamber. [….]

Deese, speaking at the Economic Club of D.C. on Tuesday, said he had “no plans to leave” the Biden administration.

“I’ve got my head down, and I’m certainly fully, fully absorbed in the work we’re doing,” Deese added.

Treasury spokeswoman Lily Adams said Yellen has no plans to leave.

The White House did not respond to a comment request.

A statement by Anita Dunn is interesting, “While we are prudently planning for potential transitions post-midterm, neither Secretary Yellen or Brian Deese are part of those plans.” Therefore, are they not in the plans due to their absence? Perhaps they're not in our plans simply because they're not out of a job? This can be described as typical Biden confusion. It could be read in two different ways.

However, Deese and Yellen have both been terrible in their respective roles by offering all kinds of absurdly wrong opinions about inflation in the last year. They have repeatedly tried to deny that inflation was actually happening, or insisted the situation was “transitory.” When they aren't able to even accept the facts before their faces, how can you believe that they'll take any action to address it?

CNN's Wolf Blitzer pointed out how incorrect Yellen was when it came to inflation that was right in front of her.

What about Brian Deese comments that if you did not include meat and other animal products, the price would not be so bad. Then he said that rising inflation was the main reason why they had to pass additional expenditure bills. Perhaps the most well-known remarks were that we all had to accept the increased gasoline prices that they blamed the conflict in Ukraine for due to the fact that “This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm.”

Council of Economic Advisers chair Cecilia Rouse is also allegedly returning to academia, which means she will also move on.

However, while Deese and Yellen are both awful, the problem is bigger than just the people and it includes the policies.

Based on the Axios report, they don't like that Yellen isn't always in agreement with their views. It's more likely that they'd like to find someone who is in line with them. If they decide to make that move, it could be necessary to get a new candidate past the Republican Senate in the event that they decide to do it after the midterm elections.

The report said that they could replace Deese with the person who is the current coordinator of the implementation of the American Rescue plan, Gene Sperling. Talk about a bad choice. However, Gene Sperling is absolutely willing to say anything to support their story. He's also less credible than Deese If that's even feasible. There have been times in the past when John Roberts tried to hold himself together and not laugh in the guy's face because of the nonsense that he tried to sell.

Thus, they could eliminate Yellen and Deese, but if they don't change their ways completely regarding their policies and practices, it won't aid anything. The issue is that it all comes from the top, and the person who is the boss here must quit in order to bring about any meaningful changes.
