It isn't Biden's age that is the problem, it is that he is clearly not cognitively qualified to be the leader of the free world.

The thing that is most confusing for me and other critical thinkers about the current state of policies... Joe Biden is clearly the favored puppet president of the Regime. The left used to be anti-Regime. Today the left is pushing and pulling for the Regime. The left is all wee weed up about old Joe's hyperpartisan state of the union where he did what you would expect... talked a talk while his policies and actions do the opposite.

For example, he did the common "rich paying their fair share" BS while under old Joe we have seen an explosion of corporate consolidation. Big mommy government loves big daddy business... and the corporations are all in with the Democrat machine to help them grow even bigger and badder.

So the left is basically THE MAN now. Somewhere, somehow... the old Republicans that used to be THE MAN, have become THE PEOPLE... the the left became the army of the Regime.

I wonder you any self-respecting leftist can feel good about that unless they are in denial.

Has he declined since 2008? Almost certainly. You need to illustrate that he's declined since 2020, and I don't think you have.

Also, he's always been a center-center-left Dem. He's always done the "rich paying their fair share" thing. I don't know where this cool-ass Joe Biden who was a clone of Bernie Sanders came from, but he's always held those kinds of normie Dem views. "Businesses have continued to consolidate, therefore he is in mental decline" is a pretty ridiculous take. Also, "regime." Come on. "Regime." Jesus.

"Regime" is just short hand for the Wall Street backed globalist corporatist and administrative establishment. But yes, Joe has always tried to play the center and because of it he was seen as the safe "do no harm" choice for those opposing the anti-establishment platform of the new GOP under Trump. His campaign position and voter expectation was that he would mend the terrible partisan divide that seem to begin with Obama and then ramped up with Trump. It appears to me that part of the reason that he has failed to meet those promises and expectations is his age-related cognitive challenges. He can no longer read the room well enough, and can barely follow the script on the teleprompter. He is also prone to irrational anger and shouting and whispering... all behaviors that anyone having loved ones with dementia will tell you is familiar.

There is a trove of footage of President Biden demonstrating some classic symptoms of age-related cognitive decline. Has his condition declined since 2020? I think it is rational to assume that anybody dealing with the same would decline over four years. However, the Regime kept him hidden in his basement with minimal speaking engagements before the 2020 election. Even as POTUS, he has given far fewer press conferences than any other. His handlers are handling him well. https://www.nytimes.com/2023/04/21/us/politics/biden-public-appearances-media.html

My thoughts, as I outlined them in the piece, are that if there are new stories about Biden's health declining, based on new events, then yes, that's news. But it's not journalism to just post reminders that he's old on the front page every few days.
