Heather Cox Richardson of the Liberal College wrote Tuesday, “declare war!” on Republicans as a way to fight what she said was their move toward authoritarianism.
Molly JongFast wrote “The Atlantic,” arguing that Biden faced problems in controlling his presidency’s “narrative”. He also needed “an enemy” who could absorb American anger. His declining approval rate has resulted in a decrease of his popularity.
JongFast quoted Richardson’s statement that if we focus on Republican “authoritarians threatening democracy”, it would be similar to former President Abraham Lincoln going after Southern slaveholders during Civil War.

“To improve Biden’s popularity, earnest consultants might tell him to work on the fundamentals. Actually, fundamentals are positive: The economy has improved. Jong-Fast stated that Americans are able to have cash as well as jobs. “The disconnect between the facts and the polls suggests that Biden’s true problem is a narrative one. Specifically, he doesn’t have an enemy, a punching bag to absorb Americans’ anger (rational or irrational).”
“If Biden must unite voters against whom? She added. “Boston College professor Heather Cox Richardson told me, ‘Biden could easily declare war on the authoritarians threatening our democracy, much the same as Abraham Lincoln did when he pulled northerners together to stand against the slaveholders.’ That is, he could spend more time trying to direct Americans’ attention to the threat posed by the Trump-directed Republican Party, which is consolidating power at the state level and turning against democracy in large numbers.”

Jong Fast affirmed her agreement with Richardson. She placed the blame on Republicans, not towards Biden, for inciting a division among Americans.
“Now Biden needs to remind Americans of what he’s trying to achieve—rescuing democracy from the threat of authoritarianism, both at home and abroad—and ask them to enlist alongside him in that cause,” she wrote.
Biden was able to rally support of voters in his 2020 campaign, which they will continue doing today. Democrats are faced with significant obstacles. She said that fixing the narrative might save democracy.”
