Biden doesn’t know where he is — literally

Biden doesn’t know where he is — literally

It is now occurring daily, sometimes multiple times a day. Former Vice Pres. Joe Biden, whose brain, his neurosurgeon assures us, is “as sharp as he was 31 years ago” (which when you think about it isn’t saying much!), continues to make embarrassing flub after embarrassing flub on the campaign trail.

On Friday, the 76-year-old who is running for president for the third time, appeared at a campaign stop in Hanover, N.H., where he said of the healthcare plan he was proposing, “We’ll make sure it’s not quality. We’ll make sure it’s only affordable.” In the following sentence, he seemed to welsh on the promised of affordability, telling those assembled that he would raise their premiums.

Yesteday, he made an especially unforgivable faux pas while in Keene, N.H., where he said:

I’ve been here a number of times. … I love this place. Look, what’s not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it? [Emphasis added]

Note to readers with ambition to run for national office: New Hampsherites and Vermonters are fiercely loyal to their own state and dislike being confused with the other.

With all mental the mistakes and the slurring of language (see the “mix” video below), team Biden and the Democrats as a whole need to own up to the fact the candidate is not ready for primetime. He is vying for what is arguably the most demanding job on Earth, one that is notorious for aging a man. If he can’t handle the pressures of running for the office, how in the world is he going to handle the awesome responsibilities of the presidency?
