In yesterday’s column, I mentioned that one of the caveats of criticizing the job Kamala Harris has done is that she’s only been in the office since January and that she and Joe Biden only won election in November. At best, she’s had just under eight months, but it’s really just been under six. She hasn’t had time to really establish herself fully.

However, if you look at her job performance thus far, it doesn’t paint an optimistic picture for the future. Her one big play has been to go to El Paso, Texas, to make a show of going to the border without actually going to the problem areas. What’s more, there is no noticeable movement in her role to encourage the unvaccinated to get their COVID-19 vaccines, nor is there any movement on actually investigating voting rights issues.

These are all assignments she has been given by the Biden administration, and so far she really hasn’t gotten much of anything done. It’s so bad that the New York Times is sharing a very weak defense of her performance: It’s just too much.

Like I said yesterday, I think a great deal of the problem is that she simply does not care to do the job. Either Harris or the people who surround her thought this would be a piece of cake job that she could chill in until it was time to run as Biden’s successor. The problem is, there was an actual job to do.

It is all now getting worse for Harris as POLITICO has a story out about the dysfunction behind the scenes in her office. Those in the bottom ranks of her staff are routinely thrown under the bus while her top aide protects Harris and herself from scrutiny. The air is assessed as “toxic” and there is very little management keeping things together.

The handling of the border visit was the latest chaotic moment for a staff that’s quickly become mired in them. Harris’ team is experiencing low morale, porous lines of communication and diminished trust among aides and senior officials. Much
