Joe Biden’s mind is not what it used to be and everyone knows it.

Over at CNN, analyst Joe Lockhart, who used to be Bill Clinton’s press secretary, is now arguing that Joe Biden should skip the debates with Trump. It’s obvious why he is saying this.

Like all Democrats, he is terrified that the public is going to see Biden melt down in real time.

From Newsweek:

Democratic strategists and supporters of Vice President Joe Biden are urging him not to debate President Donald Trump in the lead-up to Election Day, citing Trump’s publicity stunts and disregard for the rules in 2016. Meanwhile Biden backers, including some conservatives, applauded the University of Notre Dame and the University of Michigan for cancelling their scheduled debates over COVID-19 concerns.

Former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart joined several Democratic Party strategists in bluntly advising Biden, “whatever you do, don’t debate Trump.” Speaking on CNN Saturday, Lockhart said Trump shouldn’t be given another platform which will enable him to “repeat lies,” which he said occurred in the 2016 debates against Hillary Clinton…

“We saw in the debates in 2016 Hillary Clinton showed a mastery of the issues, every point she made was more honest and bested Trump,” Lockhart told CNN. “But Trump came out of the debates doing better I think because he just kept repeating the same old lies: ‘we’re going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it,’ ‘we’re going to keep all those Mexican rapists out of the country,’ and ‘we’re going to make great trade deals’ — none of these things have come to pass.”

Here are the “telltale” snippets:

It is becoming clear that everyone knows what all of this is really about.

They have no confidence in Joe Biden and It’s blatantly obvious.

Instead of worrying about who Joe is going to name as his running mate for V.P., the Democrats should be thinking about what the hell they’re going to do full stop. They’re supposed to be fielding a candidate who stands for their moronic values and causes and who will down the “horrible orange man” (with the usual scummy flair and pizazz) fleece the votes like they fleece everything else.

Unfortunately for them, this one’s cheese has slid off the cracker.

If we see this kind of performance in 2024, you can count on a Trump Dynasty for a good long while after that.
