    I don't think either of Trump or Biden are physically and mentally up to it. Both parties need to intervene and drop their main candidates on those grounds.

    Congress and the Senate are just about as bad.

    The US seems well on its way to being run entirely by senile corrupt old people.

            Or the cards with the questions and answers written out for him along with pictures of the reporters so he knows who to call in what order?

            How about all the times he complains about what "they" won't let him say or do?

            Or the time he was chatting with the media at the White House Easter event, and a staffer in an Easter bunny costume ran over, frantically waved in his face, and then led him away?

            You might think Joe is mentally competent, but his handlers clearly do not!
            I don't think they've done it in several months, but how about the times they'd cut off the feed to his mic when he was talking? Imagine some "assistant" cutting off the mic to any other U.S. President. Do you think that they would've been on that job on another five minutes?


            Ah... looks like back when old Joe had that rambling speech when he was in Vietnam and they had the "band" play him off stage as well.

              I'll be honest, I think both Biden and Trump are suffering from mental decline.

                They are undoubtedly both suffering from mental decline — precious few people are as sharp at 80 as they are at 30. Question is whether either is suffering mental decline to the extent that they are neurologically or mentally incapable of doing the job. Listening to Biden speak at length, I don't think there's real evidence to suggest that he is suffering cognitive decline anywhere near that red line. Even Trump, whose mental acuity and attention to detail are considerably worse from my point of view*, is mentally competent**.

                I'd prefer a president who wasn't suffering from age-related cognitive decline, certainly. But Biden clearly continues to have a good handle on the details of his job, continues to be aware of current events, and remains situationally aware in conversation, often showing deliberation over his words that is confused or intentionally misinterpreted as evidence of impairment. Neither is Trump exhibiting the kind of decline that made Dianne Feinstein's continuing service such a sad and worrying thing.

                I'm considerably more worried, neurologically speaking, about long-lasting cognitive impairment from COVID-19 in the coming decades: I think we are already in a place where we're noticing real impairment from people who are way too young to show it and that damage is probably going to only exacerbate over time. People who are half Biden's or Trump's age have a real risk of being much worse, neurologically-speaking, when they hit 65+.

                  It almost seems as if the parties have concluded that having a competent president is against their best interests.

                    First, I'm just wondering if ANY of our Tweb posters honestly believes Biden is of sound mind and body.
                    President Biden does not seem to be well. He is nearly as forgetful and mistaken as I can be at times. It's his age, and definitely it's mine.

                    Maybe more members here will remember that when they're calling him 'criminal' and the rest of it?

                    Sadly that puts the USA in to a very insecure position, imo.

                      After our experiences with Prime Minister Truss in the UK it's unlikely that any folks here will be laughing at Trump's clinical incapacities.
                      How did that woman rise to such power as that, if the Conservative party has any common sense?

                      But folks can get facts horribly skewed, it's true. After Trump's UV gaff some customers came in to my wife's workplace, saw a large UV lamp and laughed out loud to see how daft her employers are....they'd heard news and what Trump had said and this assumed that UV was useless! When we get it wrong we really get is wrong!

                      **If Trump ever does get to trial, I'd hate for mental competence to be a nullification factor!
                      If Mr Biden would get a free pass due mental incapacity then so could Mr Trump get one.
                      Or maybe you're a victim of the great political divide like so many rightoids on here are?

                        Honestly, Congress should pass the 25th amendment commission idea that the democrats dropped once it was no longer politically opportunistic to trumpet it, and have them investigate Biden. After all, Pelosi said it wasn't about Trump, but future presidents.

                            Which is not surprising. But look at Trump's schedule compared to old Joe's. President 40% vacation and needs multiple naps when he isn't, compared to someone out every day on the campaign trail and in court. A lot more opportunities for OMB to screw up and yet they're still a fraction compared to the guy with cheat sheets reminding him he needs to take a seat.

                              Are Democrats Taking a Biden Replacement More Seriously Now?

                              After President Joe Biden’s disastrous press conference on Thursday, speculation grows that he will be replaced in the presidential election after he made it more than obvious he has no brain cells left.

                              The “elderly, irritable man” who stood on that podium addressing the nation was not the type of leader this country can rely on— and Democrats are panicking. With less than nine months before the 2024 election, the party may be exploring other options.

                              According to a Democratic operative on Friday, it is “realistic” that Vice President Kamala Harris could replace Biden. However, with approval ratings worse than the president, Democrats know they won’t keep the keys to the White House with her on the ballot.

                              A December Monmouth University poll found that Harris has just a 35 percent approval rating, with nearly 60 percent of likely voters disapproving of her vice presidency.


                              First - yes - it's "Democrats" without naming any.

                              But then - James Carville, though nutty as a fruitcake, is really keen on politics...

                              Democrat James Carville, known for his central role in former President Clinton’s campaign, wrote in his column that the Left is no longer looking to shy away from Biden’s diminishing cognitive health but instead “looking to interventions from the Supreme Court, or a criminal conviction for Trump, in the hope that such developments would shift the election in Biden’s favor.” (Via The Hill)
                              The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

                                And Biden's frequent references to events that simply did not happen even after the press points out that he is repeating events that simply did not happen.

                                But you make a good point - If one guy has 250 hours of speeches in a week (or even a month) compared to somebody who has only 3 hours in that same time span, but they both make the same number of mistakes or gaffes....
