    The debates will be better than all super pooper bowls combined. I fully expect Joe to want to take it out back. Such a tough guy.

        You can watch the face of Anderson Cooper's guest betray visible concern as Biden starts to incoherently ramble.

It's a bit of a gamble.

          Biden does make a bunch of gaffes, but I question whether this is dementia. I remember people making fun of him for gaffes back when he was Obama's VP.

          Actually, if there is a cognitive problem, it's almost certainly not full-fledged dementia. It would be far, far more likely to be mild cognitive impairment, a still notable but less serious cognition disorder.
          I think if Biden manages to simply show up and not drool on his own shoes then liberals will crow about how he "beat expectations" and will declare him the winner of debate based on that alone. That could be the downside of all of this, that the bar has been set so low for Biden that he just might be able to clear it.

              That's good. He did another "thing" at a campaign rally. I don't know the source, but this girl sampled it for a song.

After which he was asked a pre-screened question and you see him wait several seconds before he begins clearly reading "his" reply as it is being typed out for him on the teleprompter by someone. He has literally deteriorated that much since the fiasco in Iowa (I don't think they ever did get a final total from that Democrat caucus).

                And yet, even when being spoon-fed answers to softball questions we still get stuff like this from poor ol Joe.

                  Biden admits that Trump's trade agreement is better than NAFTA which Obama promised to get rid of but never did. During a CNN interview, Jake Tapper asked Biden about it, suggesting it was a big policy win for Trump with Biden saying, "No, it wasn't, because Congress amended it before the President signed it!" You can see Tapper squirming, trying to get a word in to stop Biden from making a fool of himself, and finally Tapper says, "But Trump got it done, and you didn't. That's the point." Biden says, "No, we didn't do it because we had a Republican Congress!" Tapper sat in silence for several seconds with a "You have got to be kidding me" expression on his face before continuing with the interview.

                  Biden was otherwise surprisingly coherent. Of course it was a taped interview, and editing can do wonders.

                    Finally, someone who didn't toss a softball to Biden. Surprising to see it on CNN.

                      Here's the look Tapper gave Biden for a full three-seconds after Biden said they couldn't renegotiate NAFTA because of the Republicans:

                      tapper.jpg

                      Either Tapper is thinking about the first two-years of Obama's presidency when he had an unbeatable Democrat majority in Congress, or he's thinking that even a Republican Congress would have happily supported a trade renegotiation that kicked NAFTA to the curb. It reminds me of the look Chief Justice Roberts gave to Liz Warren after she asked a stunningly ignorant question during the impeachment trial:

                          All presidents, like anyone else, had a tendency to fumble their speech on occasion. Obama was a disaster without his teleprompter. The Bush's had their own unique syntax and word pronunciations (i.e., Saddam, nuclear...). But Biden is on an entirely different level which is why his handlers quickly rush him off allowing no questions after he delivers his memorized long rehearsed couple of sentences. Worse, the example provided was Biden reading from a teleprompter.

                            Biden must have forgot how the Democrats had complete and absolute control of Congress -- including a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate -- for nearly two years back when Obama was sneering at Republicans saying that he doesn't need nor want their input.

                              Biden's press security refuses to give a straight yes or no when asked if Biden uses a teleprompter for taped interviews. Instead he goes on an extended rant about how it's just a Trump campaign talking point. But he never takes the golden opportunity to refute it.

                                Aside from the fact that congressional approval isn't necessary to negotiate a contract. Biden seemed to indicate the reason NAFTA wasn't renegotiated was because of Congress.
