Chris Carney Comments on Biden Showing His Candid Side Before Midterms
Chris Carney was quoted in The Hill article “Biden Gets Punchy as Midterms Go Down to the Wire.” The piece provides an overview of President Biden’s “punchiness with the midterms…and with the prospects of Democrats losing at least one chamber of Congress.” Due to this, the president is increasingly demonstrating his more candid side, which he has typically held in check during his time in office.
Offering his thoughts on the issue, Chris said, “As the president in public settings, Biden tends to want to appear statesman-like. As a campaigner in a more political setting, Biden is not afraid to be more ‘direct’ in expressing his views about the opposition.”
He closed by stating, “Biden is a consummate politician, and understands that in purely political settings, his audiences sometimes want an unscripted, unfiltered message.”
Chris represented Pennsylvania’s 10th Congressional District for two terms and was a tenured professor of political science specializing in international relations at Penn State University.
