A few years ago, one of my wife’s younger relatives bought their first house. They had no idea what they were getting into.
They were looking at houses for a couple of months and found one that they really liked. They were about a week away from getting everything taken care of to move in and they asked the realtor to have another look at the house.
They got to the house and found this horrible mold problem that had been literally painted over. That’s what Joe Biden is now to the Democrats. He looks like a really nice house, but at the end of the day, they are realizing that there is mold all over the place.
Imagine a political party supported by a rank and file so bereft of inquiry that they would support an Anglicized cardboard cutout of Xi Jinping… or a dementia-ridden old man who might as well be… No difference.
They refuse to see what the non-Kool Aid drinkers picked up on a long time ago. And it’s showing in the polls.
A poll released this weekend shows President Donald Trump, a significant lead over the Democrats’ presumptive nominee former Vice President Joe Biden in virtually all of the battleground states.
“Crucially, President Trump has a lead of 48 percent to 43 percent in the swing states Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin which would put him back in the White House with an electoral college tally of 309 to Biden’s 229,” according to David Maddox whose newspaper commissioned the poll.
Only two weeks ago a Fox News push poll had Biden leading the president in battleground states by double digits. What happened?
As we get closer to the election voters are paying more attention and what they’re seeing is a president who is fully engaged and a challenger who emerges from his basement bunker to deliver a few gaff-filled comments before going back into hiding.
There are no probative Q and A’s with reporters. Voters see this as a confirmation of Biden’s increasing mental infirmity, a point President Trump has been hammering home over the past month…
But Trump was only continuing a theme started by Biden’s Democrat challengers during the debates.
Following a September debate Fox News recapped it this way:
… Former Housing Secretary Julian Castro, who served in the Obama administration with Biden, landed arguably the lowest blow when he swiped at Biden’s memory — accusing him of contradicting himself on whether Americans would have to buy into his health care plan.
“You just said two minutes ago they would have to buy in. Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago?” Castro asked, in what appeared to be a reference to past senior moments by Biden…
Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., publicly backed Castro after the debate and raised further questions about Biden’s ability to carry the banner for the Democrats into 2020.
“I think we are at a tough point right now, because there’s a lot of people concerned about Joe Biden’s ability to carry the ball all the way across the end line without fumbling,” Booker told CNN in an interview. “And I think that Castro had really legitimate concerns about can he be someone in a long grueling campaign… and has every right to call out.”
Since that debate, and the two-month old video above, Biden appears to have slipped even further.
