    Some people don't want Biden to run because he's old which is true. It has nothing to do with cognitive impairment. Dems are trying to reach a younger generation and there are questions whether or not an 80 year old can get the vote of a younger generation.

    Trump is old too, but MAGA won't talk about age because they have no other good candidates and refuse to address any mental impairment that is clear with Trump such as in this thread.

    No.

    Once again, I have responded to your point that you keep rephrasing. Read the bolded part....

    Trump can speak for hours on end at rallies and be entertaining the entire time. While riffing off the top of one's head may naturally lead to occassional blunders and half thoughts from time to time, captivating an audience for that long cannot legitimately be accomplished by someone that is senile. If it was for 5 minutes it could maybe be done with someone that is senile. For an hour? Not a chance.

    You really dont see Biden speaking for more than a few minutes without a teleprompter and this is EXTREMELY rare. His handlers obviously keep his extemporaneous comments to an absolute minimum.

    A proverbial trained monkey can read a teleprompter, so having that ability proves very little, other than he has not lost his ability to read. I guess you still have that.

    It has everything to do with his ability. Yes, old people are often senile. Yes, it is a dangerous game electing someone that is old because you just cannot tell if during their term they could turn senile and hence be unqualified for the job.

    With Biden, it is not a worry about him turning senile during the next term. He has ARRIVED. This is the ONLY reason that legitimate high profile Democrat strategists would seriously suggest removing their candidate at this stage of the game. Such a move is incredibly risky, but in their estimation, the risk is worth it because that is less risky than running someone that is obviously senile and incapable.

    Thank you for confessing your double standard and that you can't agreed your idol's senility.

    Why won't MAGA address the fact that Trump is 78 and makes frequent mental mistakes such as not be able to pick out his wife from a stranger? When someone brings up Trump's mental impairment, MAGA only respond with "but Biden..."

    I've never seen a monkey use a teleprompter, trained or wild.

    Yes, Trump is 78. Nobody is denying this.

    All politicians have blunders, especially Presidents because there every word is scrutinzed. Nobody is immune from such. This is about consistency. Biden is consistently confused. He almost never speaks extemporaneously, and when he does his handlers frequently need to revisit his comments and explain how he was mistaken or misspoke etc. This is precisely WHY his handlers do not let him speak extemporaneously.

    I personally believe that Presidents should not be older than maybe 65. With that being said, some older people remain just as sharp as they were ten years or 20 years prior, but most do not.

    Trump is not substantively different than he was 10 years ago. If you thought he was a big mouthed ****** ten years ago, he is the EXACT same big mouthed ****** today. Bernie Sanders is similarly not substantively different. Pelosi remained fairly sharp into her 80s but she now has slipped a little but now in her mid 80s, but is still miles ahead of Biden in terms of ability. Same things applies to Chuck Schumer.

    You cannot say the same thing about Biden. He has crossed that bridge. It is impossible to imagine that he could still be President in 4 years. If somehow he were to win, there is no way he will finish out his term. Mitch McConnell is similarly no longer qualified for his position, but you dont see anyone trying to make him President.

    I get it. The Right is dismissive when Trump does it, apoplectic when Biden does it.

    He is totaly incapable of offering a constructive / positive message .......even on Fathers day. A potential leader should be inspriational, uplifting and encouraging. He gets a FAIL in all of the above.

    Except it is not true. In Feb 2020, the Unemployment rate was 3.5%. Biden's lowest Unemployment rate was 3.4% but is now up to 4.0%. On top of that the labor participation rate was 63.3% in Feb 2020 and now the labor participation rate is 62.%. The killer is that labor participation rate. We don't have enough people working.

    The only thing that justifies his existence is his “protecting U.S. from U.S. The reality is the American Nation and it’s people would be much better off if his divisive BS just stopped.

    The U. S. needs tRaitor tRump like a case of herpes. He IS the disease, if he would shut up and go play golf … THAT would be the solution.

    Without his constant haranguing and ****ing with Congress and the Supreme Court we could solve our problems.

    Unfortunately, he is ADDICTED to the spot light and being the center of attention ..so his retirement from the public sphere is not an option to him. Even though he lost, he has made sure he is in the public forefront to the point he deliberately overshadows the real POTUS. This is totally intentional. He does and says things to keep himself in the media. It is actually pathetic that he is so needy of being in the center of attention. This factor alone disqualifies him from the job as the job needs a person who is not focused on himself .......but the people he is serving , the world events, and objective decision making. He fails in these factors too. He is very insecure and this is demonstrated by his constant desire for revenge for real or imagined slights. If a person is unable to handle criticism , he/she has no business to take on leadership roles.

    It was 8% during Covid. The Unemployment Rate was 3.5% prior to Covid. In addition, the Unemployment Rate does not include all that are unemployed. It only includes those that are looking for work. If they are not looking for work, they are not counted as unemployed. To get the total unemployed, you also have to consider the Labor Participation Rate which was 0.8% higher under Trump.

    That's because Seniors were forced back work when Trump was president.

    Trump is not the same person. He didn't mix people up as he does today. And Republicans made McConnell Senate minority leader despite all his issues.

    He has always had a fair share of brief blunders. He has never been someone that you would call an articulate speaker. Nobody is immune from such and he most certainly is not an exception.

    Biden has never been an articulate speaker as well, but he has crossed the bridge into old town. Did you see how condescendingly Obama went full on Visiting Angels and grabbed Bidens wrist to direct him off the stage this weekend at the Hollywood fundraiser? That is the type of move you see regularly in the nursing home or at a very infirm grandparents' house as in "come on you've had a busy day, lets get you to bed grandpa."

    LOL...It was pathetic. Obama knows. He sees it. The bulk of the American public sees it. Polling is not close on this issue. You and some other political chat board leftists however oddly cannot see what is as plain as day to everyone else.

    Take a look for yourself....
    Video of Joe Biden Leaving Stage at Hollywood Fundraiser Sparks Criticism (msn.com)

    It is incredibly telling. You only grab the worst of children and very infrim old people. That person cant be the President of the united States. Surely he is going to be replaced if the DNC has any say in the matter.

    Wait...so you have never in your life been doing an activity and then someone gets your attention to finish the activity? Right wing media is seriously using Biden taking in the adoration of a crowd as a knock while ignoring Trump can tell people apart?

    Obama did his best to play it off and act as if they were just two buddies while he put his arm around him, but the reality is, one man does not grab another man's wrist to move him and you know it. That is a move you only do with young children or very infirm out of it old people. There is no in-between. You can play off the arm around him, you cannot play off the wrist pull. That is as truly condescending as it gets. If someone tried to do that to you you would say WTF are you doing?

    Even if you are going to say Biden didn't need the help, the reality is that is what Obama thought, and presumably Obama has a pretty good idea of what Biden is like behind the scenes.

    My wife has done this to me especially when I am looking at something too long. I don't think it's condescending. I can see why Obama grab his arm since it's a very loud arena.

    Meanwhile Trump is losing the ability to distinguish between 2 different people, and people think it's normal to not be able to pick out your ex-wife from a lineup.
