Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Wed Mar 4, 2020, 08:06 AM

 

The new smear from the right is that Biden is senile.

I am hearing the Fox News guys and the CEC pushing it hard. We need to be ready for this- it is the only thing they have and they are goin to run with it.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

Trump isn't senile, either. His pathos is one of personality, not cognition. He's a liar and a buffoon, but he's still agile on the stage. If you're going to successfully "debate" him, you need to be aggressive and quick on your feet.

While he may not be senile, his mental acuity is very lacking. He's a terrible debater in the traditional sense. If I was going to advise Biden (and of course I'm not), I'd tell him to not even debate trump while on stage, just make your points and get out, because trump's just going to turn it into a shit-flinging contest, and if you partake in that contest you can't beat the ace shit-flinger.

That's why i think Joe would want to ignore him as much as possible and just make his case. I do share a bit of your concern, but I also saw what happened in our democratic electorate last night. Folks who know Biden, warts and all, basically decided on their own that he's the one they want against trump. That carries weight for me. He was never my first choice (Harris, then Warren, a dash of Klobuchar), but he's the viable choice left standing IMO, and a man of good faith and integrity. I'm proud to support and donate to him.

Speak slowly.
Speak in simple short sentences. Not paragraphs.
Stick to one topic in each sentence. Do not change topics mid sentence.
Stop saying ďlookĒ so much.
Smile more.
Relax.
Youíve got this.

He ought to be, anyway. Although I know (like Bernie) he's shown a bit of temper a few times in public, and it's not super cute, however merited.

But that's not who he actually is, which makes him a great contrast to Trump. So I agree with your advice to smile more (again, great contrast to Trump) and to do all those other things, too. The country wants a calm and reassuring and empathetic president after the nonstop rollercoaster of emotions of the past three and a half years. We're exhausted.

69. Precisely...I've posted the same thing many times

 

Short simple sentences with one thought. He gets stuck and comes across as old and forgetful when he attempts the complex response. Biden was capable of that in 2008 and 2012 but not today.

Gore lost because of the sighing in debate one. Don't let anyone pretend otherwise. I knew darn well the polling would shift dramatically I saw it in my living room while hosting a debate watching party. I had young women literally grabbing their flip phones and calling their mothers in horrors that they had actually intended to vote for Al Gore.

Obviously Gore would have won anyway minus those ballot designs. But debate one caused the race to be closer than it should have been.

Now anyone who doesn't understand Biden's vulnerability in the debates is indeed kidding themselves. For one thing, he's going to need to talk much more when it's one-on-one and not one among seven.

Privately, his staff should do this.
The only way he doesnít get the nomination is if he stumbles thru a debate with Sanders.
Right now, debate prep is MORE IMPORTANT than holding rallies.

46. Best thing his campaign manager can do is keep him well-rested, not push him

 

too hard, basically just be the same as Donnie Dumbass, doing friendly rallies and not being overexposed.

52. I have met Joe twice in person and he is sharp and on his game

 

I maxed out for primaries back in October. I have met and got hugged by Joe at two fundraisers. Joe is sharp and has not lost a step.

At the first fundraiser, Joe did the selfie shot himself (he took my iPhone from me) and did a great job.

At the second fundraiser, we talked about stuttering. I was a stutterer until 4th grade. We were told that my son was "developmentally delayed" by the head of Jewish education in Harris County who was on the board of my Temple with me. It turned out that my son and I each had a language processing issue that manifested itself in different ways. I stuttered until 4th grade and then grew out of it. My son was tested and had some therapy and is now a partner a major law firm (he graduate Phi Beta Kappa and was an editor on a law journal).

Joe hugged me and we discussed stuttering. I was amazed at the compassion and humanity of this man

Joe has not lost a step and is an amazing person. I have seen him up close

62. LISTEN UP, PEOPLE! You are being gaslighted!

 

Iíll say at the offset that I like Joe and Joe has gotten older, as have we all. Is he at peak? Define it. Is he declining? Define it.

Does anyone have the vaguest idea how youíd come off in front of a camera hours per day, your every twitch scrutinized and used to shore up whatever pet theory each person wants to push? If youíre a hugger now youíre a creep, no matter whatís your intent. If you misspeak youíre gaffe prone, no matter youíve been talking nonstop for days and have had people firing talking points and questions at you without ceasing. If you wax nostalgic youíre out of touch. If you use modern vernacular youíre an embarrassing boomer. If you stumble over words youíre feeble.

Being older does slow some things down and cause some things like anomia, temporary forgetting of words and names. Itís not dementia and itís not a sign of failing cognition. Itís literally specific neural pathways not connecting as quickly. It happens to damn near all of us if we live long enough.

Iím sure campaigning is a beast on older people, but Iíd put some elders far ahead of youngers in handling it. Governing takes wisdom and intelligence and the will to place people around you who will carry out a cohesive, purpose driven plan that reflects the wants and needs of a nation.

Joe is fine. If Joe IS slowing heís fine. Heís not developing a different personality or forgetting what heís there for. Donít give the right, whose boy is genuinely personality disordered and is trying to be a dictator, fuel against a decent, smart man who yes, is in his seventies. And can get us out of this.

74. Well, he's not

 

You know how Joe used to challenge people to a push up contest to show how robust he is for his age? What will put this hit meme to rest for the overwhelming majority of the sane American public is the upcoming one on one 90 minute plus debate Joe Biden will have with Bernie Sanders in less than two weeks. That is a much more demanding format than a six person debate where one gets time to gather one's thoughts. Biden doesn't have to "win" that debate to demolish that smear, he just has to hold his own and I'm pretty darn sure he will.

I hate smears of any kind. Let politics be dominated by the issues embraced by, and the integrity of, our candidates.

It is also coming from the left.

I have seen veiled posts here questioning Biden's mental acuity

Makes me really angry that people supposedly on our side would do that.

77. yep

 

Funny, I remember this going around on Twitter when Biden was leading in the polls, and then it mysteriously went away for a while when he was down...and now it's magically back. I find it personally offensive because I have had family members who had diagnosed Dementia...eff these transparent armchair doctors, because they seem to have no idea what it actually looks like. Also, screw Hillary's email story, the press never did an accounting for the online smears that persisted for months/were assisted for months for many mainstream media folks that Hillary was secretly dying, or had Parkinson's or something. I fully expect it to continue through election day aided by right, the feral left, and Russian trolls. Also bold because they are doing this to prop up a candidate who had a heart attack just a few months ago.

79. Since South Carolina, we've seen a different Biden.

 

I suspect that Biden wasn't so sure of his candidacy before then. He seemed both hesitant and distracted. It APPEARED that he was losing capacity. Since SC, Biden has been upbeat and focused. Go figure.

He may, at 77, still be in a decline cognitive state, which would be natural for a man his age. But he may have enough drive and activation to nonetheless move forward and draw more people into his camp. Bernie is about the same age and would naturally encounter the same limitations based on his age. The VP nomination is vitally important for both candidates. Warren or Harris would be ideal, but not so if Sanders gets the nomination because picking either, for him, would vacate TWO Senate seats.

82. Biden was sure; he knew that he had to wait for South Carolina. The selections before that

 

were a New England primary, and two caucuses. He gave great speeches, he put in the time, but he knew those would not go to him.

Most of his supporters here said so, but people lapped up the popular media narrative.

And how does someone senile manage to get a major party nomination (other than Republican :rofl
