Re: President's visit to Wisconsin
You looked friendly and amiable, and like you belonged after the nod to the gentleman as he passed.

Re: President's visit to Wisconsin
So you got to see old Joe, watch and listen to him, real-time live? Nice beard.
If you care to share, Oh Bearded One, what are your impressions of this guy? Can he do another term?

Re: President's visit to Wisconsin
He is an old man. He is physically slow, but seemed sharp. What other choice do we have? Is he my first choice? No. Then again my first choice would not be elected. You dance with the one that brung ya. Let's get him elected and then deal with down the road.

Re: President's visit to Wisconsin
People have to remember that this president is supported by entire scads of advisors. As I read it Joe Biden is not alone in his office the way Trump was. He appears to have a strong staff and his decisions are not made with limited input. And his input comes from the whole of the Democratic Party.
Trump was advised by only his closest staff unless they disagreed with him then his only advice came from himself. And he is a proven liar, thief, rapist, insurrectionist who, quite openly, says that he will lead a revolution if defied.
No we don't have any choice.

My tennis group has gotten older through the years, and two of us are 82 now. One is still spry, the other has been slowed by double knee replacement, but both still hit a mean ball. Mentally, both are very sharp. Often they are placing the ball in the exact right spot.
At her 95th birthday party my grandmother played piano with the band.
Some people are old at a certain age, some aren't. How physically old is Biden? He exited the room very slowly, in stark contrast to running onto the stage after winning the 2020 election. Has he slowed that much, or does it just take a few steps for the joints to loosen up after standing stationary at a podium for a while? I don't know.
But what's important in a president is his mind. I don't think he's displayed much of his mind publicly during his presidency, though he seems to be gradually emerging from hibernation during this election year. As far as I can tell he's the same guy we elected nearly four years ago, just physically older and slower.
But age could strike him down at any time and then it will be President Kamala Harris. In my view she's been a disappointment, as has Joe. But when considering how a Democratic win in September might play out for the country over the following four years, it isn't a question of whether Biden or Harris would be a good president. The question is whether they'd be a better president than Trump, and of that there can be no doubt.

Well, if they win in September, that should shut up everyone who thinks Biden is slow.
