Congresswoman Val Demings’ refusal to have an opinion or criticize the Biden Administration’s botched Afghanistan withdrawal is showing just how weak of a leader she truly is. Instead of taking a position on the most important issue of the day, she spent her time launching weak attacks on Senator Marco Rubio who has been strong on Afghanistan from the start.

Democrat Val Demings, who is running for U.S. Senate in Florida, is continuing to avoid criticizing the Biden administration’s disastrous military withdrawal from Afghanistan while attacking incumbent Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) for his active demands for accountability.
Demings, in her latest remarks about Afghanistan, was asked Wednesday during a local television appearance if she thought anything “should have been done differently” after watching President Joe Biden’s speech about leaving Afghanistan after 20 years, a hasty exit that came after a fast-paced Taliban takeover of the country two weeks ago and deadly bombings last Thursday.
Demings replied that “war is ugly; it’s ugly going in and it’s ugly going out” and that there would be “plenty of time” to answer the question of what could have been done differently later.
Demings last Thursday, after the bombings in Kabul killed more than 100 people including 13 U.S. servicemembers, accused her opponent Rubio of playing “Monday morning quarterback.”
Rubio, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has, by contrast, been sharply critical of many aspects of the Biden administration’s withdrawal, a process that has received bipartisan criticism and caused the president’s approval ratings to plummet.
When will Val Demings let us know where she stands on the Biden Administration’s failed leadership? Floridians and Americans are waiting to hear.
