Democrat Congressman Slams Biden Campaign for Debate Response: ‘Arrogant’

Democrat Rep. Scott Peters (D-CA) has slammed the “arrogant” response from President Joe Biden’s campaign in the wake of last week’s disastrous debate.

Peters argues that Biden’s handlers have failed to give Democrats a much-needed “boost” amid criticism of the president’s debate performance.

Peters called the re-election team “arrogant” following last Thursday’s debate which exposed Biden’s degraded mental state.

Biden’s behavior during the televised debate has led to calls from many within the party and liberal corporate media for the president to suspend his 2024 presidential campaign.

“We needed a boost from Thursday. We didn’t get it,” Peters said during a Wednesday interview with CBS 8 San Diego.

“And the campaign has been very, I think, arrogant in their response”

In the face of mounting pressure to drop out, Biden and his allies have insisted that he will stay the course and allegedly beat President Donald Trump in November.

During the White House July 4th celebrations, Biden said, “I’m not going anywhere.”

When asked whether the president would drop out of the race, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre recently replied, “Absolutely not.”

In addition, Jean-Pierre claimed Biden is “as sharp as ever.”

Peters, who refused to say whether he wants Biden to step down, told the CBS affiliate:

“As much as I love Joe Biden, in those swing states, he’s having a hard time.”

Biden’s debate performance did not give his campaign a boost in the swing states where he was already trailing Trump.

Peters said he was willing to hear from the Biden campaign team about their plan to get back on track.

Otherwise, he said the party might have to explore other options.

“We want to know what [the campaign’s] plan is to win this election and turn these numbers around,” Peters said.

“If they don’t have a plan, then I think we have to move in a different direction.”

The president has admitted he did poorly during the debate, telling a Wisconsin radio station on Thursday, “I had a bad night.

“I screwed up. I made a mistake.”

“But I learned from my father, when you get knocked down, just get back up,” he added.

“And you know, we’re gonna win this election.

“We’re gonna just beat Donald Trump as much as we did in 2020.”

However, Peters stressed that he and other Democrats need to see a concrete strategy for how Biden will secure the swing states following his “bad night.”

He told CBS, “The point is to win the election.

“It’s those seven to 10 states that this is going to be decided in, and Joe Biden’s trailing.

“We need a plan to win those states.

“And if Joe Biden’s got that plan, I want to hear about it. ASAP.”

In response to the comments from Peters, the Biden campaign argues that numerous elected Democrats “have lined up in support of the president.”

The campaign shared quotes from several of these lawmakers.

One quote was from Rep. Haley Stevens (D-MI) who recently said:

“I am 100% with the Biden-Harris ticket and I am standing by our president.”

California’s obedient Gov. Gavin Newsom also recently stated:

“I heard three words from the President tonight — he’s all in.

“And so am I. @JoeBiden’s had our back.

“Now it’s time to have his.”

Hawaii Gov. Josh Green also recently declared support for Biden.

“I was with President Biden multiple times over the last year because of the Maui wildfires, and this was a guy who was on top of it,” he said.

“In this upcoming election, it is clear to me that we’re electing a commander in chief, not a debater in chief.”
