Going back to the 2020 presidential campaign, right-leaning media has been well ahead of the curve in asking serious questions about President Joe Biden’s mental health. His presidential term is ending and things are getting worse. There have been many instances of chaos and anger.
A few days back, President Biden appeared to have lost his place and was saved by his wife Jill (see Jill Biden steps in to save a confused, meandering Joe Biden). Biden’s inability to contain his anger, especially with families of the fallen soldiers, is another example. Biden’s bizarre word-salad and confused speeches are now almost a daily occurrence.
Despite that, the mainstream press has largely deemed analysis of Biden’s decreasing mental state as off-limits. Today, however, this has changed. The Wall Street Journal voiced their dismay, noting the fact that they are not seeing normal things. Their breaking point was Biden’s latest CNN town hall.

This is something we regret, as the U.S. requires a president who is capable of handling the demands of his job. Biden wasn’t Demosthenes. All Presidents make mistakes in speech. But Mr. Biden’s frequent public confusion about the major issues of the day is a reason for growing public concern.
You are invited to join the party, boys. RedState has been chronicling the obvious mental decline of Joe Biden well before he assumed office, and at times dealing with great pushback from supposed “fact-checkers” looking to explain everything away. To see a major newspaper finally get on board is nice, but it’s also annoying, in that it should have happened long ago.
It’s been clear for a long time that Biden is not well. As the Journal points out, confusion is common in almost every public appearance. The president has no grasp of the issues when he’s not on the teleprompter, and even then, it’s difficult for him to make any distinctive point without tripping over himself. It could be dementia, senility or another, but the president is not ready for what he does.
Unfortunately there is no other option. A fully aware Kamala Harris, even if Biden resigned, is still likely to be the worse choice. The country has become a nation of slumberers and leaders. The people who chose to vote in Biden even though these issues were obvious before the election get what they pay for.
