An Editorial Opinion
I do not support the Democratic Party’s effort to re-elect a frail, old, and senile Joe Biden as president of the United Sates. This is a selfish act of elderly abuse for political gain, and it is plain wrong.
With the release of Special Counsel’s Robert Hur's report several days ago, the U.S. Department of Justice has officially determined that Joe Biden is senile. This is the sole reason why Biden is not being prosecuted for crimes related to his retention of classified national security documents after he left the Vice Presidency in 2017.
I agree with the Department's assessment in Joe Biden's case -- because of Biden's senility, he did not have the mental capacity required to commit the crime.
Former president Donald Trump has been charged with these same document retention crimes in a Miami federal court and is awaiting his trial. The Department determined that Trump had the mental capacity necessary to commit these crimes. So, senility was NOT an issue in Trump's case.
Who's Running the Biden White House?
Personally, I do not know who is running the White House, but I know it is not Joe Biden. He's senile. What is worse, Biden's more senile today than he was four years ago.
Nobody wants another senile president. Those of us who are old enough to remember President Ronald Reagan know what it is like to be governed by a senile president. Reagan, who had an affable personality, was senile during the latter part of his second term in office.
Senile presidents are essentially figurehead office holders. Unelected White House aides and cabinet members run the country for senile presidents.
Out-front in the Movement to "Dump" Biden as President
On March 29, 2020, I published an article titled, "Democrats Must Draft a New Presidential Nominee." In the article, I warned Democrats that they needed a presidential nominee other than Joe Biden.
The Party ignored my advice and allowed the Bill/Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama loyalists to pick Joe Biden as the Party's 2020 nominee. In turn, Biden picked California freshman U.S. Senator Kamala Harris as his Vice-Presidential running mate.
Biden won the 2020 election primarily because former president Donald Trump demonstrated his colossal incompetence during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Americans were also tired of Trump's non-stop daily drama, buffoonery in office, braggadocios conduct, constant chest-pounding, narcissism, and megalomania.
Trump lost the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden. The election was not stolen. There was no massive fraud in the nationwide voting, as alleged by Trump and his minions in over 60 court cases that he lost. In many of these cases, Trump-appointed federal judges ruled against him.
The qualities that made Joe Biden an unattractive presidential candidate in 2020 are worse today. Biden does not embody the presidential leadership qualities Americans need today.
World leaders pity Joe Biden, rather than respect him. Biden is lost in the fog of senility.
Simply put, Joe Biden is too old, slow, and weak to lead America in today's fast-paced, rapidly changing world.
The bottom line is this: I will not be an accomplice to the Democratic Party’s elderly abuse of Joe Biden. It is cruel, disgusting, counterproductive, and dangerous for America.
"Hating" on Donald Trump is NOT an acceptable reason for re-electing a senile Joe Biden as president.
I would not treat an old dog the way the Democratic Party is treating Joe Biden. The party should thank Biden for his many decades of public service to America and make sure he is comfortable in an assisted living facility.
Meanwhile, Democrats need to find another nominee for president or get ready for a Donald Trump presidency in January 2025.
