WSJ: Biden's Insistence on Running For Office as an 81-Year-Old Is "Profoundly Selfish"

Karen Townsend quotes the WSJ at Hot Air:

[V]oters have managed to notice that Mr. Biden is showing his years. Seventy-seven percent of Americans say he's too old for another term, according to an August AP poll, including 69% of Democrats, 74% of independents, and 89% of Republicans. And who says Mr. Biden hasn't united the country? During the 2020 election, concerns about his age were muttered sotto voce, but now they're front and center in his re-election bid.


Then why is he asking the public to keep him in the Oval Office until 2029, when he will be 86 years old? If he can't take the rigors of a presidential campaign, why would voters think he can handle four more years of a grueling job, which might include being shaken awake in the wee hours to respond to a Chinese invasion of Taiwan?

Given Mr. Biden's age and obvious decline, running for re-election is an act of profound selfishness. He has wanted the big desk since at least 1987 when he first ran. Aging people, even if they're not surrounded by yes men, can be the last to notice time's toll, as many can attest after trying to take away dad's car keys.

Steven Green notes that the propaganda wing of the Democrat Party is really pushing Biden to drop out. CNN, for example, runs a piece by Harry Enten:

Joe Biden is facing a near-historic deficit for an incumbent

Electoral analysts, myself included, like to cover our behinds. We use words like "may" and "could" to make sure we don't get too far ahead of ourselves -- especially when examining polls of a potential 2024 general election matchup between Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

But the truth is that Trump has a small but clear advantage over Biden right now. This makes Biden just the second president since scientific polling began to trail in his reelection bid at this point in the campaign.

Take a look at recent national surveys from CBS News/YouGov, CNN/SSRS, Fox News, Marquette University Law School and Quinnipiac University. All five are high-quality polls that meet CNN standards for publication.

All five give Trump an advantage of 2 to 4 points over Biden among registered or likely voters. On their own, none of these data points mean too much. Trump's lead in all of them is within the margin of error. Averaged together, though, they paint a picture of an incumbent with a real problem.

Over the past 80 years, incumbents have, on average, led their eventual challengers by a little more than 10 points about a year out from the election. This includes nearly every incumbent for whom we have polling since Franklin Roosevelt in 1943.

It includes Barack Obama against Mitt Romney in November 2011. This is notable because a number of Democrats have tried to dismiss the current data showing Biden in trouble by saying that Obama had been behind at this point, too. That simply isn't true.

In fact, the lone incumbent to be behind in the polls at this point is the man Biden succeeded and is likely to face again: Trump, who trailed Biden by about 10 points in November 2019.

That's what makes Trump's small polling edge right now so remarkable. He never had such an edge during the 2020 campaign. I'm not just talking about this point in the 2020 cycle. I'm talking about at any point. I'm also not just talking about a lead in the average. I'm talking about a lead in any national poll that meets CNN's standards for publication over the entire 2020 cycle.

Biden was already unpopular, but now his unpopularity is at all-time highs because his antisemitic Osama bin Ladin-praising base is deserting him.

From NBC's garbage polling unit:

A new poll by NBC News found that just 34 percent of all voters approved of how Biden is handling the Israel-Hamas war, which has been ongoing since militant group Hamas launched its deadly incursion into southern Israel on Oct. 7. Since the onset of the fighting, Biden has remained adamant over the U.S.'s continued support to Israel.

NBC News noted that only half of Democratic voters, 51 percent, approved of Biden's handling of the conflict. Nearly 60 percent of independent voters said they disapproved while nearly 70 percent of Republicans said the same thing, the outlet noted.

Some Democrats have been outspoken against the U.S.'s support of Israel, arguing that the U.S. should cease funding the country and also calling for a cease-fire in the war. Progressive members of Congress, including Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Cori Bush (D-Mo.) have spearheaded these calls.

You might want to also mention that TikTokers, aka the Young Democrats of America, are now praising Osama bin Ladin's "courage" and "eloquence."

The poll also found that Biden's approval rating dropped to 40 percent, which it said is his lowest level of his presidency. NBC News noted that the poll found that his support largely eroded among Democrats who believe that Israel has gone past the line of its military action in Gaza as well as among voters 18 to 34. Among this age group, 70 percent disapprove of Biden's handling of the war.

Harry Enten, in the article linked above, disputes that it's the hard left causing Biden problems. He points out that voters describing themselves as "very liberal" support Biden 92% to 6%. That's... pretty good.

The problem, he says, is the less ideological. People who tend to vote on actual results and the condition of the country.

Biden's biggest decline is actually in the middle. He was ahead by a mere 12 points among moderates in Quinnipiac's poll and by 18 points in Marquette's survey. Fox had him up by 5 points. CNN put the margin at 17 points.

The Pew report from 2020 had him winning this bloc by 28 points. The exit polls had him winning moderates by 30 points. On average, we're talking about a 15-point swing away from Biden.

Below, the world's creakiest, creepiest pedophile lays some smooth rap on a 6-year-old girl, asking her if she's 17.
