The New York Times, a pillar of the liberal community and academia everywhere, has finally admitted Joe Biden is in rapid mental decline and far too old to continue serving as Commander-in-Chief.
The article points out a few painful facts facing Democrats, especially with a difficult midterm election just around the corner — and Biden continuing to claim he’s running for a second term.
The Times piece says Biden’s “age has increasingly become an uncomfortable issue for him, his team and his party.”
“Just a year and a half into his first term, Mr. Biden is already more than a year older than Ronald Reagan was at the end of two terms,” the story continues. “If he mounts another campaign in 2024, Mr. Biden would be asking the country to elect a leader who would be 86 at the end of his tenure, testing the outer boundaries of age and the presidency. Polls show many Americans consider Mr. Biden too old, and some Democratic strategists do not think he should run again.”
The Gray Lady also said the President’s staff admitted to having extra vigilance when in Biden’s presence, to ensure the almost 80-year-old man doesn’t end up falling flat on his face.
“They acknowledged Mr. Biden looks older than just a few years ago, a political liability that cannot be solved by traditional White House stratagems like staff shake-ups or new communications plans,” the article reads. “His energy level, while impressive for a man of his age, is not what it was, and some aides quietly watch out for him. He often shuffles when he walks, and aides worry he will trip on a wire. He stumbles over words during public events, and they hold their breath to see if he makes it to the end without a gaffe.”
Biden has been known for his gaffes over the decades but they have become more frequent, bizarre, and obvious in recent years.
In addition to several uncomfortable encounters with women, children, and members of Congress — Biden was recently caught reading a teleprompter line that was meant to be an instruction to repeat what was already on the screen.
In a speech reportedly ranging from gender issues to Roe v. Wade, to voting — Biden eventually stumbled saying:
“One of the most important extraordinary parts of the decision, in my view, is the majority writes, and I quote — I’m going to quote now from the majority — ‘Women are not without electoral or political power, it is noteworthy that the percentage of women who register to vote and cast a ballot is consistently higher than the percentage of the men who do so,’ end of quote, repeat the line.”
Many in the media, major political circles, and even Biden’s own staff seem to think this won’t be his last gaffe or major embarrassing moment before it’s all said and done, as shadows of a one-term Jimmy Carter administration — plagued by incompetence, low confidence, high-interest rates and off the charts energy prices — continues to come to mind.
