Biden says he plans to run for reelection in 2024

"Toe Wayne Brown. In his first formal news conference today, President Biden defended his administration's handling of immigration challenges along the Southwest border. He announced a new 100 Day vaccination goal and said he expects to run for reelection in 2024. But as NPR's Tamara Keith tells us by an also left himself some wiggle room on the reelection question. President Biden hasn't declared that he's running for reelection or set up a campaign committee. And admittedly, it is quite early yet. But there has been a question about whether he ever intended to run for a second term, and his first press conference created an opportunity to ask and answer is yes, my plan is to run for re election. That's my expectation, and he said he expects Vice President Harris would be his running. Made on more pressing matters. Biden doubled the covert 19 vaccination goal, he said before his inauguration. He said his administration now aims to have 200 million vaccine doses administered by his 1/100 Day in office. At the current average of about 2.5 million doses a day. That goal

"Injury if the Wayne brown there left tackle dealing with the knee and bicep injury Mattel and our Kendricks is out of the game with his knee injury animal league Turner the receiver and Jerome brown with both malpractice due to a concussion and the needy the one thing that for me in this football game that's gonna set this team up for success is Russell Wilson I still believe that the Seattle Seahawks will win this football game you want those amount injuries I do think that their defense will be able to step up and I do think the injuries on the right side of that offense of line for the Philadelphia Eagles are going to show up you know that this is a defense in the Seattle Seahawks that hasn't been as opportunistic as they have been in the past giving takeaways in getting after the quarterback I think today than quality is going to be healthy enough to be able to be that came record like we've seen earlier in the season where he's just completely taken over football games like the one that he did up against the San Francisco forty Niners in San Francisco I just for me I I think that they're gonna do enough offensively and I think Russell Wilson's experience in playoff games is what's going to be able to set their offense up for success and he's just gonna be able completely hijacked this game all right how much does it help or hurt any of these teams the fact that we're seeing this game for second time in a short amount of time a Seattle going on the road to being Philadelphia seventy nine the regular season yeah I mean I don't or the teams so ravaged by injury that's really kind of a two different teams taking the field I think it is kind of two different teams taking the field today OB easily for for once getting it's bad but no you know no Jeffrey on the outside noche to Sean Jackson like he had earlier in the season I go around Lauren this one and then you look at the record for Russell Wilson being on the road at seven and one being able to overcome the amount injuries that they've had at the running back position obviously now they're going to try to get be small going again I just think that in the passing game and his ability to be elusive in and change the launch point is truly what's going to set up this often for success yeah and and listen I I don't disagree with you and here's the other issue in you talked about the off and so on you can speak to this better than anybody better ever I could you know I haven't no Brooks in Johnson along that offense of line for the Philadelphia Eagles is an absolute killer for Carson Wentz no question especially with the ability of the Seattle Seahawks even say what their limitations and coverage in that secondary what they can still do is they can still get after the quarterback and one of the big reasons why is is that you know when you have an offense of line that struggling what does that tell you it tells you the quarterbacks gonna get the ball out of his hands quicker and it tells you that the receivers you need to win their one I want and create separation early because the quarterbacks not gonna have that much time they don't have the weapons on the outside to do that so person wants is gonna have to hold on to the football longer and that's gonna let that pass rush get home especially when you're looking at the right side completely rebuilt of new players no talking about communication I you're talking about stunts coming out of this defense whether it's twits whether it's blitz pick up they're going to do a lot of things to test an offense of line up front to see if they can hold up and I'll tell you is that we both have a lot of confidence a Russell Wilson I think yeah I give credit to that of a quarterback in the coach it down in Philadelphia as well when all yeah what the limitations and the lack of skill position players that he has to be able to squeeze a lot out of a little Carson Wentz Ike I think you make the argument last month of the year probably played his best football since he tore his ACL in Los Angeles again forever and not to mention health and fire he's been in fourth quarter of games to bring them back to into this challenge and I almost think like the injuries to their offense to to their wide receivers almost has made Carson Wentz play better because it's back down the fundamental and basic football getting it out of your hands running simplistic stuff and getting the ground game going I just don't know how they're going to be able to do that with their inter office what now disagreed that and and the other thing is I think what will be a better player for this moving forward she was our one even say the eagles survive today beat the Seattle Seahawks about when the Superbowl this year you know they're they're just they're just not good enough but it he will be a better quarterback in twenty twenty and BR moving forward and that's the other thing for Peterson here I don't get it and I know I got eagle fans friends you know my where they're critical of Peterson as a head coach at times Doug Peterson David has done a remarkable job this year with the state no question I mean look at the amount of injuries they've had on both sides of the ball the fact that their offense was still able to function with running backs being out offense of line being out skill position players being out but yet he's coach them into games believing in one another coming together is a football team and winning games and getting into the playoffs even though people thought that they should and so it does say a lot about his coaching and I agree with you this adversely that that has happened to Carson Wentz coming back from the off season not being a true leader of this football team all the critical outspokenness about him as a player they can't see anything about him in the way that he's responded this year now they really care which of the two games we got two great games on Saturday if I as you David which of these two games today ends up being a better football game I'm gonna say the the saints Vikings game out I would probably agree with that I think it's gonna be a more exciting to I think the Seattle Philadelphia game might be one of those games where you got what receiver to it would be like it might be like a thirteen nine final I mean that's what that's the way that that game again I've told this story before and I'll say it again I'll never forget my rookie season and three granted we lost eighty three we were getting into the playoffs week seventeen we're playing the Panthers at home in the member used to do the over white over lower back stretch I remember when we moved to the right might lean to the left person stretching next to me I've never seen them in my life I'm and I'm looking at this post who is this next to me I turned over and I looked to my right nobody knows we have twenty three people and injuring serve we signed them on Saturday he was
