After the two presidential debates and several town halls, I don’t think there’s much doubt left regarding the “Biden has dementia” issue.
But on Tuesday, Biden just gave the Republicans more material to use against him. As usual, when he doesn’t have a trusty teleprompter telling him what to say, Biden loses his train of thought and becomes unable to answer appropriately.
During an interview, Biden had mistakenly said George, referring to George Lopez, the interviewer, instead of Trump.
“The character of the country, in my view, is literally on the ballot. What kind of country are we going to be,” he had said. “Four more years of George— uh…George, going to find ourselves in a position if Trump gets elected, we are going to be in a different world.”
He stumbled over his words before he corrected himself. However, as the media often does to protect Biden, they said that Biden had mistakenly said George, referring to George W. Bush instead of Trump, not Lopez.
As is usual with Biden and the media, both are quick to ignore any mistakes he’s made and bounce back as if everything were normal.
On Tuesday, Biden was again elsewhere, and he sounded more coherent as he answered questions about the Court. According to him, he’s not in favor of ending lifetime appointments for justices, although he might be okay with some scheme in which the judges would take turns rotating onto and off the Court.
The proposal is quite sound. If done correctly, it could minimize the influence of any single justice. It could also be constitutional as long as the people rotating onto the court are already federal judges, confirmed by the Senate, and entitled to hold their position for life.
