    Ted does not know the difference between being forgetful and being senile.

    Can you blame us for voting Trump in protest, Ted?

    The dems are so evil, they hoisted a senile old man on marionette strings for the most powerful position in the world. Used the puppet to flood the republic to have more congressional seats and power inside government. You say the dems are just misguided, but c’mon, that’s pure evil.

    Said one liberal NYT columnist, “I think Biden, as painful as this is, should find his way to stepping down”. The columnist went on to say, “The people whom Biden listens to — Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, Mike Donilon, Ron Klain, Nancy Pelosi, Anita Dunn — they need to get him to see this”.

    You can’t make this stuff up. He might have also added Susan Rice, the puppeteer of puppeteers.

    Leftists are using what little is left of this weekend at Bernie’s candidate, when he should be spending his sunset time with his grandchildren. It’s elder abuse and Doctor Jill knows it but doesn’t care.

    Well done Mr. Rall. Perfectly describes what is sadly happening in the White House. Got forbid kamala ever gets the top seat.

    The sad fact is 75%+ voters believe Biden is in mental decline with some form of dementia. And Biden is incapable of proving otherwise-won’t/can’t hold campaign rallies, sit for an interview, debate or hold press conferences. It would be fun instead of a debate both trump and Biden would be in $64,000 Question isolation booths taking cognitive tests.

    Biden said Putin killed Navalny and Trump is wrong to support Putin.

    Sounds pretty lucid to me.

    Trump in office again would be worse than Biden. Much worse. That’s not to say that Biden is the dream candidate of progressives. He’s not. What should progressives do? Should they stay home? Should they vote third party? Either of those choices would make it more likely that Trump will win. I don’t tell other people what they should do, but they should understand the consequences of what they do. Me, I will vote for Biden and also work outside of the two-party electoral system to promote progressive ideas and policies. (I live in Canada, so I also get to vote for something closer to a progressive party, the New Democrats.)

    Keep pushing the senile angle Ted and you may get trump as president. And.. given his recent ramblings, do you really want him as an “above the law president”.. seriously? The very definition of a dictator.

    Fun little fact to Biden haters. He’s currently ranked the 14th best president of our country. Meanwhile his presumptive challenger in November is ranked dead last. Worst than Andrew Johnson is really saying something how bad 45 was. There’s no way he’ll be 47

    No president does the job without consulting with experts on whatever subject is being considered. It would be impossible for one person to be thoroughly knowledgeable on all domestic and foreign issues, as they change from day to day. When a decision needs to be made, I would hope that the president would consult with experts on the situation, not just one but several, and then make the decision he is required to make.

    I realize that Trump often didn’t do this. I am aware that the experts he met with often reported that he didn’t read reports and didn’t pay attention in meetings, and usually did whatever he chose, with little consideration of even the limited information he had absorbed, even when unanimous advise told him to do something else.

    This is considered by some of his supporters as being a macho, shoot from the hip type of guy, their kind of of guy. The literal result of that kind of mentality is an often shooting off a couple of toes. Figuratively, it making it your top priority to kill whatever Obama put into place, including the agency that might have prevented Covid from getting out of the Chinese province where it originated.

    It’s appalling that primary season has barely kicked off and we already know we’re going to be stuck with the two most unpopular candidates in history.

    In this debate of Biden’s senility, or not, we keep missing the point that the other, an only slightly younger candidate, is a nutcase. OK, so maybe Joe’s second term may start to resemble Reagan’s second term, but that’s far and wide better than the Trump presidency of pure insanity. So, the choice is a slightly senile president who can still get bills passed to benefit the whole country, or, a total nutcase president who’ll use his DOJ to take revenge on his enemies, raise taxes on the poor and middle class, give more tax breaks to the uber rich, and let Putin run rampant over much of Europe. The really horrible thing is, there are actually some dummies who’ll take the latter choice while they worship their true savior.

    From what we have seen as possible candidates for president/vp from both american oligarchies, we are in deep sh1t! not one has a focus on the realities of the country. One wants to overthrow what was established as the fondation of this nation and make himself god; the other is focusing on stoping him, while neither has addressed the real issues facing this nation; the widening gap between rich and poor, and the fealing that the poor are the slaves of those rich. Ever seen what happens when the poor revolt, when the rich and their politicians watch their families die because greed is more important to them than a strong nation to grow with. Go spent a month in the many dictatorships, and then deside if you want one whimisicle dweeb making every decision for everyone (Sith/magas)

    Best case scenario for everyone is that neither Biden nor trump makes it to October, and we can finally get someone from a more recent generation as president again.

    Ted evidently craves a Trump Dictatorship.

    I guess he’s fed up with a democracy that is less than perfect, so bring on the dictator. At least it will be a perfect dictatorship, and the resultant bloodshed and oppression will be a small price to pay.

    Biden is not senile. The special council said anything Biden did could be defended in court, but made no claim of senility. He also said that tRump knowingly and willingly hid documents, denied it, and lied about it to law enforcement.

    Biden has shown no signs of senility. He, like ALL of us, forgets details sometimes. You’re noticing it because you’re looking for it. Go look at Trump and you’ll find more. Way more.

    Ted wants Trump to win so that things will get so bad that Ted will get his revolution. Rall probably doesn’t grasp that there has been someone like him in every country that has had a dictator, and that only a very few have been overthrown. And that in this country, the people with lots of guns are the ones supporting Trump. So yeah, Ted’s grasp of reality is far weaker than that of either Trump or Biden.
