Right on Schedule, Politico Is No Longer Covering Up Biden’s Cognitive Decline

Right on Schedule, Politico Is No Longer Covering Up Biden’s Cognitive Decline. By Matt Margolis.

On the eve of his inauguration, [left wing site] Politico published an article that contains an anecdote that is actually quite disturbing.

“For higher-profile remarks, [Biden would] obsessively rehearse portions until he committed them to memory. And at times through the various iterations of outlining remarks, Biden could grow downright ornery.

“I would never say this,” Biden once snapped at an aide, aghast over the prepared remarks he was reviewing, according to a person in the room during a speech prep session last year. “Where did you get this from?’”

The aide explained that Biden had just said it in a public speech a couple of weeks earlier.”


There are many troubling things about this story. Biden forgetting part of a stump speech is bad enough, but this is an incident that took place last year, but has only come out now. …

Obviously, Politico got the memo. The election is over. Trump is out of office. Biden’s cognitive decline is no longer taboo. It can be discussed ad nauseam by the media now because getting Biden into office wasn’t the primary objective of getting him elected.

Biden’s sole purpose was to play the role of an “electable” candidate who could appeal to independents and anti-Trump Republicans under the ruse of being a centrist just to get Trump out of office. For all intents and purposes, Biden’s job is complete, and a San Francisco liberal is now waiting in the wings to take his place at the appropriate time. …

The rules have changed now. Expect more anecdotes like the one above to make their way into mainstream media reports.

Inaugurated one day, put out to pasture the next.
