Does Biden Have the Mental Acuity to Be President?

His health is in obvious decline and the mainstream media won’t discuss it.

Joe Biden is now the presumptive nominee for the Democratic Party to face President Trump this November. They were close to nominating a Communist sympathizer and unabashed Socialist until the smart people in the party made everyone rally around Biden to prevent that.

Biden is a horrendous alternative. Joe isn’t as sharp as he used to be. His age is showing in every appearance and debate. The mainstream media will condemn anyone who dares to discuss or question his mental state or abilities. Every issue should be discussed when selecting who will be the most powerful person in the world.

It’s interesting no one in the mainstream media brings up the issues about Biden because they weren’t afraid to question John McCain’s age when he ran against Barack Obama in 2008. Why wasn’t this condemned in 2008 as we see in 2020? The obvious answer is McCain was a Republican, so he was fair game. Biden is a Democrat so they must protect him at all costs, or use kid gloves not to hurt him.

In case you don’t remember or deny the media discussing how age could be an issue for McCain we had CNN, Politico, The Guardian, The New York Times, The Atlantic, and US News and World Report raise the issue. Media members have very short memories. Those same outlets would unleash vicious attacks on Fox News opinion commentators if they brought up the same questions they did about McCain regarding Biden.

It’s interesting no one in the mainstream media brings up the issues about Biden because they weren’t afraid to question John McCain’s age when he ran against Barack Obama in 2008.

Biden is making too many mistakes for the media to ignore the issue. He forgets what state he’s campaigning in, thought he was running for Senate, told us to make sure we have the record player on at night, stated we have had 150 million people killed by gun violence since 2007, declared himself an “O’Biden-Bama” Democrat, and got in a Michigan voter’s face to call him a “piece of sh*t” for challenging him on guns while referring to “AR-14s.

Biden has a big test coming up when it’s only himself and Bernie Sanders on the debate stage. Every other debate had multiple candidates speaking so his exposure was limited. Sanders is older and has much more energy than Biden. The Sanders campaign is accusing the Biden campaign of asking for a sit-down debate. Is his campaign afraid he doesn’t have the stamina to stand up for two hours and go one-on-one with Sanders?

He’s showing normal signs of advanced age and any honest person would acknowledge that.

Does he have the stamina and mental sharpness to face President Trump in the fall? The political world hasn’t seen anything like Trump’s rallies before. He speaks off the cuff hours at a time. Can he handle Trump one-on-one in a debate? Trump has boundless energy and always has a comeback for whatever his opponents throw at him.

Biden’s problems will only get worse as his campaign moves forward. He isn’t going to acquire vast amounts of new energy or avoid gaffes no matter how much he gets protected. What will Democratic voters do if he flounders in the debate with Bernie Sanders? They may second guess making him the nominee if he doesn’t have a good showing. Bernie Sanders is smart for staying in the race. Nothing is certain in politics; especially what Joe Biden may say or do next.
