WASHINGTON — It’s been a long, strange trip for Joe Biden, who officially jumped into the crowded field of Democrats running for president on Thursday morning with a call to defend our “core values.” Following months of speculation and rumors, the former vice president made his announcement with a short video in which he focused on the violent August 2017 white supremacist rallies in Charlottesville, Va. Biden noted the ensuing clashes left a woman who came to protest the neo-Nazis dead. He then recounted President Trump’s response.
I have nothing against senior citizens, after all I am getting there myself. But 76 years old? Biden didn't exhibit any intellectual abilities when he was younger, but now, being burdened with a rather respectable age--how is it going to go? US political class is slowly degenerating both into a dumb as a stump youthful immaturity and, in parallel, into a geriatric state. Yes, I recall that, I saw that before:
In the end, Biden is needed to tame Democratic Party's "rebels" such as AOC and other mindless limousine liberals or this party will go down the drain faster than expected. Good luck with that. Remember Marx? History repeats itself first as a tragedy, then--as a farce.
