The Klain Problem

Ron Klain is not a name that is known by most Americans. He is Joe Biden’s White House Chief of Staff. Look at that as the real number two position in government. He is with Joe Biden basically every moment of every day. He gives Biden his opinion on how things are and how things should be done. And a lot of people both inside and outside of the administration, say that Ron Klain is the guy that is controlling the puppet strings that seem to be tied to Joe Biden.

And Ron Klain is going to be leaving soon.

There are several reasons for this. Chiefs of Staff typically don’t last throughout the term of a presidency. Donald Trump went through four of them in four years. Obama had three. Klain has been on board for two years. That’s an eternity as far as Chiefs of Staff are concerned!

And the reason Klain is leaving now probably doesn’t have much to do with his wanting to get back to private life, or having to do with wanting to spend “more time with the family”, which is always a great line to use if you’re leaving government work. It’s the fact that he sees the handwriting on the wall when it comes to the Biden presidency and he doesn’t want to be anywhere near it when the dog poo hits the proverbial fan.

Klain has caused the mess the country is in, as much if not more than Biden. But he had little to nothing to do with the latest scandal. Biden is the one that took classified documents, which is a federal crime, and stored them unsecured in his Washington DC office after leaving as Vice President, and in his garage and throughout his home in Wilmington Delaware. In neither location were the classified documents stored in what could be considered a secure manner.

Ron Klain has called the shots in the Biden White House since he got there. And don’t think for a minute that Biden has come up with anything on his own. Klain is the guy that has had to clean up a lot of Biden’s mis-steps, gaffes, foibles, and out and out lies. He and the whole communications department have had to work overtime to clean up Joe Biden’s loose lips. And I’m sure he’s thinking that he can’t keep doing this. It’s time he leaves, and that could very well mean that Biden’s ship sinks. Because that ship has been called so far, the USS Klain.

Now, having said that, I will readily admit that everyone on the face of this earth is replaceable. There isn’t one of us that can’t be replaced. And Ron Klain is no different. The question is, Biden has chosen Jeff Zients, someone with a lot of budget experience to replace Kalin. Is Zients going to let Biden call the shots? Or, as Klain, is he determined to be the shadow president?

I find it interesting that Biden has used the “hire by their gender, race, creed, color, sexual orientation” method for his Vice President, his current press secretary, and an appointment to the Supreme Court. Yet when it comes time to hire another Chief of Staff, the person he works closest with, he chooses to stay away from the above criteria. Interesting!

That is going to be what sets the tone for the Biden agenda moving into the second half of his term. And that is also going to say a lot as to how Biden approaches a House of Representatives controlled by the Republican party. To date, he hasn’t done much, if anything to negotiate his agenda with the GOP. We can blame Klain for that one. But we’ll have to wait and see if he digs in his heals, or if he relents and becomes the Joe Biden he said during the campaign can work across the aisle. Only time will tell.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. Mr. Klain causing messes that other people have to clean up is why I always caution voters, you’re electing a president, but he will appoint the people around him. You have a right and a responsibility to know who these people are. You’re right. Until now, I did not know the name “Klain” — and I suppose I should. Except that I didn’t vote for Biden. And I didn’t think anyone else would, either.

    There was one additional criterion Biden used in selecting his V.P. NOT Hillary. Otherwise, he’d be dead already. I imagined Valerie Jarrett was still in a position to run things and have people say that the puppet master was Obama. Maybe that’s why I was looking in the other direction. I think it’s good that I’ve become addicted to your blog. You keep me properly focused.

  2. The clown who tells Bidet who to choose is 0bama. The Bidet administration is 0bama’s third term. Bidet is nothing more than a stinky sock puppet for 0bama. And I heard of Klain before. He’s been the pooper scooper for Bidet’s flatulence gone wrong. He gives the real meaning to Bidet’s famous retort “MY BUTT’S BEEN WIPED!”


    1. I’m not so sure Obama’s involved. Much of what Biden is doing doesn’t appear to have Obama’s fingerprints on it. Klain on the other hand is exactly one of the ones pulling the strings. My only problem with Klain being the puppet master is he doesn’t have the wherewithal to put Biden into that position in the first place. There aren’t many that do. But I’m looking to Soros.


      1. Ah…you aren’t up on how Soros works. He tells his son Alexander, who’s basically running things what he thinks. Alexander then goes right to the source. He doesn’t use middle men like Obama. And he’s no dummy. At 38, he graduated from NYU and has a PhD from Berkely. He’s going to be around for a LONG time after daddy buys the farm.
