Joe Biden was basking in the glow of his victories in a strong primary that allowed him to lock in a stranglehold on the Democrat Party Presidential nomination.
But the good times did not last for long.
Joe Biden threw down an ultimatum. It was the biggest mistake of his life.
On Super Tuesday Biden pitched his candidacy to voters by tying it to the fate of Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.
If you want a Democratic nominee who can:
– Beat Donald Trump
– Keep Nancy Pelosi as Speaker and hold the House
– Take the US Senate and state legislatures
-Then this is your campaign.
Nancy Pelosi stands as one of the most divisive politicians in America.
It is true that Americans handed Pelosi the Speaker’s gavel twice.
But Pelosi and her fellow Democrats were thrown out of power in the 2010 tea party wave which stands as the biggest midterm blowout in American history.
Biden trying his candidacy to Pelosi remaining as Speaker poses significant risks for Democrats.
The former Vice President is a risky General Election candidate.
As the campaign progressed, Biden’s alleged cognitive decline became more apparent.
Bernie Sanders supporters pointed out repeated instances of Biden forgetting where he was or what he was saying.
In an appearance on Fox News Rudy Giuliani warmed Americans that three years from now Biden may not even be able to function as President because Giuliani alleged that Biden had dementia.
Democrats believe that Bernie Sanders put the House majority at risk and eliminated any possibility of winning back the Senate.
Biden’s national profile and supposed “moderation” allegedly made him a safer bet for down ballot Democrats.
That may not be the case.
Biden only spoke for seven minutes at a Missouri rally after his campaign largely kept him under wraps after Biden’s Super Tuesday victory.
And even in that brief seven-minute appearance Biden managed to make another verbal stumble when he claimed voters could re-elect Donald Trump.
No party has ever nominated a candidate in such obvious declining mental health as Biden.
That means all the so-called “conventional wisdom” about Biden’s “electability” go out the window.
The Presidency visibly ages the men that hold the positions.
Both George W. Bush and Barack Obama greyed significantly in their two terms in office.
Bush and Obama saw the Presidency inflict a significant toll on them despite the fact that both were relatively young men when they first won the Presidency and kept themselves in good physical shape.
Biden will be 78 years old on inauguration day and would be the oldest President ever to take the oath office for their first term.
If Biden is rapidly deteriorating before Americans’ eyes with the light campaign schedule he keeps now, how can voters have any confidence that the 24 hours a day and seven days a week demands of the Presidency won’t completely crumble what remains of Biden’s cognitive functions.
