Go for 2024 Joe....it will be even easier then 2020.....

Just imagine running against a Trump/Lake ticket...with campaign mottoes like;

Trump/Lake - Because two Losers are better than one...

Trump/Lake - Trump is a dump and the Lake is toxic...

Trump/Lake - Because Kari is more fun to "grab" on the trail than Pence...

ROFL...

-2 ( +3 / -5 )

He's done.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

There should be an age limit for presidents. 35-70.

-1 ( +1 / -2 )

People jeered and the 'old man' Ronald Reagan in the 80s and even though he was suffering thru the first stages of Alzheimer's (at least during his 2nd term), he did talk with Gorby and negotiated a peaceful end to the Cold War.

Now Joe is the oldest POTUS now and some people lip off about his age too. One factor is that he has battled stuttering his whole life. Besides, he has a track record in law and government and oldest POTUS or not - he is a human being (warts and all) who is willing to work and hash out with others in a democracy. He is NOT and far better than an ill-mannered obnoxious unqualified immature dictatorial treasonous terror mongering undiplomatic uncouth fascist pig who claims to be the Messiah and has no regard for anybody else, maybe not even his worthless SELF.

Joe is just another guy and the recent midterm elections didn't really phase me at all, I just didn't worry about it. Now that the USA has some balance, sanity, honorability back, that's more than good enough. I'll take 'Old Stuttering Joe' any day of the week over that Caligula scum that Joe refers to as 'my predecessor'. After all that crap we've had before, I'm happy now. Happy birthday, Joe.

Very true, with the exception that almost all Americans didn’t know he suffered from the disease until really after his death for the most part.

Now Joe is the oldest POTUS now and some people lip off about his age too.

And his cognitive or lack of them and how his mishaps are happening more frequently, most people pretty much suspect what he might be going through, but as with everything else swirling with this administration, you’re not allowed to talk about it for some reason, we pretty much suspect why that is.

One factor is that he has battled stuttering his whole life.

That has nothing to do with anything, absolutely nothing at all.

Besides, he has a track record in law

There are a lot of speculations about that, but cutting through the mustard and show who the real Biden is, from almost derailing and belittling Clarence Thomas’s nomination, telling Hillary Clinton that we have to teach blacks to be more like us, what does that mean? Calling blacks predators and created the “3 strikes” law that has destroyed and devastated more black lives than anything else during the 90’s not to mention so many racist insults and so much more.

Joe is just another guy and the recent midterm elections didn't really phase me at all, I just didn't worry about it.

Well, a lot of Dems are extremely worried about a Republican house because Biden’s spending agenda is over.

Now that the USA has some balance, sanity, honorability back, that's more than good enough.

75% of Americans think the country is headed in the wrong direction. Again, 75%.

*I'll take 'Old Stuttering Joe' any day of the week over that Caligula scum that Joe refers to as 'my predecessor'. After all that crap we've had before, I'm happy now. *Happy birthday, Joe.

So you’re of the smaller 25% of Americans that disagree, interesting…

The guy had the chance to be a unifier, but he decided to wage war on the conservatives focus on his toxic policies and pushed an agenda most Americans are not happy with and we have seen it now that they have the lost the House, maybe, just maybe they might see what they destroyed.

It's an obstacle he's had to deal with all along.

Besides, he has a track record in law

There are a lot of speculations about that,

There was speculation about Reagan in the distant past. An actor, becoming California governor and then President? There was a lot of speculation on that, then 'Mr. Jingo' surprised everyone by talking with Gorby. Those armchair general diehards didn't like that at all, but he was full of surprises. Still, the Jackson Brown/Carly Simon/Democrat-no-matter-what crowd lipped off about Ronnie no matter what he did. That's being an 'ultraliberal' brickhead.

Joe was a Senator and VP under Obama for 8 years. That says something. And trump? Nothing.

he guy had the chance to be a unifier, but he decided to wage war on the conservatives focus on his toxic policies and pushed an agenda most Americans are not happy with and we have seen it now that they have the lost the House, maybe, just maybe they might see what they destroyed.

If 75% of Americans were dissatisfied, where's that 'red wave' that was predicted? Nope.

At his victory speech Joe said that in the times to come there would be people of various parties debating and hashing things out but that it is alright, it's natural and democracy in action. He was very clear and explicit that one man rule is NOT the way to be. It's not American at all.

Joe knew that and he said that he'd be working with others to work out the issues. That's an improvement over a criminal egotistical sociopathic sassybrat who can't be worked with and who is not fit for any social, diplomatic or social setting.

Joe has done all this before. Not everything he's said before is 'smart'. Every POTUS and VP has said and done some stupid things, as well as good things. Until trump came along, he's not fit to govern a trash can.

Joe hasn't put on a sickening personality cult or claimed to the 'greatest' in anything, let alone the Messiah.

And Trump is not a Democrat, not a Republican, not an Independent, not a Green, nothing but a Caligula fascist pig who was installed by Putin. He's a traitor to the bone.

And now there's some balance and sanity returning after 4 years of an abusive crap dictatorship. D, R, I, G, any party, all parties - it's America now. Not one scumpot screechy criminal - many voices from America's diversity. Joe isn't trying to be a 'unifier' but a negotiator. That's what America is truly all about.

And? Many people have stuttering problems and they function well without a glitch. If that were Biden’s only problem, I get it, but that’s not the case.

Ok, but still, most Americans didn’t know or even understand Alzheimer’s at that time, we didn’t know how severe his condition was until the very end, we don’t even have any photos.

*Joe was a Senator and VP under Obama for 8 years. That says something. And trump? *Nothing.

**Now what we’re Obama’s famous words about his VP….”leave it up to Joe to f* things up.” Yeah, not exactly a positive endorsement.

If 75% of Americans were dissatisfied, where's that 'red wave' that was predicted? Nope.

They got the House, turned Florida and especially Dade county deep red, won and spread congressional seats throughout California and New York, not a wave, something almost impossible to imagine at one point, but huge gains, that’s setting themselves up nicely for 2024

At his victory speech Joe said that in the times to come there would be people of various parties debating and hashing things out but that it is alright,

Yes, he also said that the nation needs to heal and that we need to be unified and what happened? The exact opposite. You’re not even allowed to question this administration and we won’t start with the daily lies they tell us.

it's natural and democracy in action.

Yes, if you allow the opposition to say something and to dissent, but you can’t with this administration. Can’t question 2020, can’t question Dr. Fauci, can’t question the border, can’t question crime or inflation, this is the worst and least transparent administration on record.

*He was very clear and explicit that one man rule is NOT the way to be. *It's not American at all. 

Well, he somehow didn’t get his own memo. Was he incognito there as well?

Joe knew that and he said that he'd be working with others to work out the issues. That's an improvement over a criminal egotistical sociopathic sassybrat who can't be worked with and who is not fit for any social, diplomatic or social setting. 

And yet, he never got us into any wars, none of our adversaries even attempted to take us on and this guy is getting played like a Charlie Daniels fiddle. From Vlad to the Saudi Prince to the Ayatollah, Xi and Maduro, the guy just shows continued weakness on the global stage.

Joe has done all this before. Not everything he's said before is 'smart'.

Now we are both on the same page

Joe hasn't put on a sickening personality cult or claimed to the 'greatest' in anything, let alone the Messiah. 

He doesn’t have to claim anything, the people see it, his party sees it and when he gets in a pickle, they quickly exit him off stage and once again the press are not allowed to ask questions, why?

And Trump is not a Democrat, not a Republican, not an Independent, not a Green,

He’s an American that despises the establishment, that’s why millions love the guy

He's a traitor to the bone. 

No, he never sold the nation out to China to the Iranians, Ukrainians l, Russians, Germany or NATO.

And now there's some balance and sanity returning after 4 years

75% of the nation doesn’t think so. You’re only 25% of the people that for some odd reason thinks things are fine, but not to the average American

Joe isn't trying to be a 'unifier'

Well, that’s his biggest mistake and now that cost him the House and most likely 2024 if he were to run, but that probably won’t happen. Real democracy is when all Americans have equal rights and the same 1st amendment right to speak out and question their government, the left used that privilege extensively and tirelessly for 5 years, but now they don’t want to give the right the same curtesy??? That’s not how democracy works and the Dems still don’t get it, but from January they will.
