The title of this blog is not meant to be sarcastic. It is meant literally.
I am worried – damn worried – that Joe Biden is no longer mentally competent to be considered for the presidency.
Watch this 15 minute clip of Biden being honored, by having a community swimming pool he worked at as a kid renamed in his honor. Watch/listen to him go into a Grandpa Simpsonesque rant about the good old days, complete with some obvious pandering to the largely Black crowd.
And – most cringeworthy of all (quite an accomplishment, considering the rest of the video) – listen to him, starting at 6:48, saying, so help me:
“And, by the way, y’know, I’d sit on the stand, and it would get hot, I got a lotta, I got hairy legs that turn, that that that that that that turned uh uh, um, blonde in the sun. And the kids used to come up and reach in the pool and rub my leg down so it was straight, and watch the hair co-come back up again. They’d look at it. So I learned about roaches, I learned about kids jumpin’ on my lap. And I’ve loved kids jumpin’ on my lap.”
See and hear it for yourself:
Frankly, I thought Biden would be out of the race by now. But with the exceptionally weak opponents going up against him, that has not happened…yet.
And I have to accept the possibility that it won’t happen at all; that he’ll be in it to the end.
So, with genuine sorrow, because I think he’s probably a very good guy, I’ll say it plain: Joe Biden, whatever he once was, is not competent to be President of the United States now.
God help Democrats if he runs. And God help us all if he wins.
