Barack Obama is the undisputed king of the Democrat party.
Many rank-and-file voters wish he or his wife Michelle Obama could be the Democrat nominee for President in 2020.
And Barack Obama had steam coming out of his ears after this jaw-dropping insult.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is the unquestioned frontrunner in the Democrat Party.
Every poll shows he leads the pack for the nomination and could defeat Donald Trump in 2020.
The backbone of Biden’s candidacy is his time as Barack Obama’s Vice President.
But Biden is a weak candidate for many reasons.
Democrats really don’t support him personally; they just think he is the best bet to beat Trump so his rally crowds are sparse and no one is invested in his candidacy.
John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Mitt Romney were nominated by Democrat and Republican voters for no other reason than they were “electable.”
Each went down to defeat.
But by far the biggest problem on Biden’s hands is his clearly diminishing mental state.
The former Vice President’s string of gaffes where he forgets where he is, who he is talking to or details of stories lead many Americans to wonder if serious brain degenerative conditions have set in.
Biden’s latest alarming moment came during a speech in New Hampshire where he forgot Barack Obama was the last President of the United States.
During a campaign speech, Biden pumped his gun grabbing credentials by retelling the story of how Biden “beat the NRA” by passing the 1994 crime and the so-called “assault weapons” ban.
“I’m the only guy that’s beaten the NRA, and my state is a big gun-owning state because of hunting.”
“I’m the only guy that’s beaten them twice. I got assault weapons banned for ten years, it had to be reauthorized because of hanging chads in Florida,” he said. “The last president said no, I’m not going to reauthorize it.”
The so-called “assault weapons” ban lapsed in 2004 when George W. Bush was President.
Barack Obama would be the first one to be surprised to learn that Joe Biden thinks George W. Bush was the last president before Donald Trump.
Biden’s diminished mental faculties are not a bi-partisan storyline.
Fox News pundit Brit Hume declared Biden was ‘senile.’
Fellow Democrat Presidential contender Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan declared Biden is “declining” mentally.
Political pundit Mark Halperin laid out why this could be lethal to Biden’s candidacy.
“This meme is never going to go away as long as Biden is in the race. The most dangerous place for a candidate in the age of social media to be is when both Democrats and Republicans are hitting you on the same story line,” Halperin wrote in his daily email newsletter.
Joe Biden will be 77 years old on inauguration day if he wins the 2020 election.
That will make him the oldest first term President in American history.
Biden’s slipping mental state will lead Americans to wonder what he will be like at age 85 if he serves two terms.
Would his cabinet have to invoke the 25th Amendment because Biden can’t perform simple duties because his mind no longer functions at a state necessary to serve as President?
Would Biden have to resign because he is in the early stages of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease?
These are the questions Americans will have to ask themselves as Biden stumbles and fumbles his way through the 2020 campaign.
