Joe Biden has been struggling since the start of his campaign.
But lately he has been having even more trouble.
This awful lapse in memory could be the end of Joe Biden’s presidential hopes.
Joe Biden is counting on people remembering his record as Vice President to Barack Obama.
The beauty of the situation is that he can take partial credit for all the good things that happened under the Obama Presidency and blame everything that went wrong on Obama’s leadership.
When confronted with Obama’s policy of deporting illegal immigrants and family and asked if he did anything to try and stop those policies, Biden decided to throw Obama under the bus, saying:
“I was vice president. I’m not the president. I keep my recommendation in private.”
Was the reason that Biden chose to keep his recommendations private because they would be unpopular, he didn’t make any, or he can’t remember?
There is a reason that Obama has so little faith in Biden that he hasn’t come forward to endorse him.
Obama knows Biden’s leadership qualities better than anyone else, maybe that’s the reason he’s reluctant to endorse him.
But still Biden is trying to play his connection with Obama for all that it’s worth.
Just a few week ago, Biden posted a picture of two friendship bracelets on his Twitter with his and Obama’s names on them, claiming that Obama was like a brother to him.
Given their close connection it seems unthinkable that Biden would forget Obama’s name.
But that’s what happened this week.
During a speech, Biden was talking about Obama’s handling of Russia.
He started saying “President…” and then stops. After struggling for a couple of seconds, he settles for saying “My boss.”
Stress and a busy campaign schedule will take their toll on people as they advance in years, and can cause the occasional lapse of memory, or it can be a sign of early dementia.
Biden will have a very hard time convincing voters that he is capable of being president if he continues this way.
Do you think Biden is physically healthy enough to meet the demands of the Presidency?
