The good news — well, the better news — is that he’s getting closer.
In March, likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden tried and failed to recite the opening to the Declaration of Independence from memory before a live audience in Texas. Part of the problem was that he was trying to recite the Democratic version of the historic document, which contains extra verbiage to compensate for the founders’ “narrow vision.”
What came out was this:
We hold these truths to be self-evident. All men and women created … by … go … you know the— you know the thing.
This time around, he had an audience of one in the person of former presidential contender and Sen. Elizabeth Warren. When he got to the troublesome (read: non-existent) part of the declaration he simply stopped.
If you compare the earlier attempt with the current one, you might notice that Biden’s voice has become noticeably reedier — another indicator of his all-too-quickly advancing years. If the Democrats had their druthers, they’d hold the election tomorrow. As it is, they are attempting to impose extreme measures on the remainder of the time until Election Day by, for example, demanding that the presidential debates be skipped.
