I don't know Joe Biden, so I have absolutely no idea what's going on with his personal life. But for someone who is running for President of the United States of America, he doesn't appear to be getting very much live screen time. It appears, from interviews I have seen him take part in, and some debates, that the media is trying to be very careful to ensure they know where his head is at before putting him in front of a camera.
Let me be very clear: if Joe Biden is having health issues, then it is not my intent to shame the man. I am, however, pointing out that he, or those close to him, should be helping him seek medical help instead of parading him around in an incapacitated state. And certainly not pushing him as our next Commander-In-Chief. I have seen interviews and debates where Joe Biden has appeared to be working on all cylinders, but he has also appeared to lose focus mid-sentence on multiple occassions; and to such a degree that anyone else blundering their words in such a fashion might be considered senile.
These are harsh words and, I imagine, a hard pill to swallow if your Party has decided you're their go-to guy for President. But someone has to step in and make the hard decision. And if the man is being taken advantage of, then that needs to be looked into, as well. The country cannot afford to have someone in the Oval Office who is unable to finish a coherent sentence, let alone perform peace-keeping meetings with foreign leaders or giving the military orders.
I understand that there are plenty of people who like Joe Biden, and have supported him for a significant portion of his political career. But this isn't someone who is getting back on stage to sing long after their voice has given out, just so you can politely clap your hands and soothe their dignity with some pity applause. We're talking about the highest office of the most powerful country in the world. If Joe Biden can't finish a sentence now, I fail to see how we can expect him to handle the pressures of being President of the United States of America.
