According to a recent article, concerns about President Joe Biden’s age are a hidden problem at the White House.
The New York Times said that, “And as Mr. Biden insists he plans to run for a second term, his age has increasingly become an uncomfortable issue for him, his team and his party,” painting Biden as engaged in certain respects while displaying the consequences of his age in others.
When Ronald Reagan left office, Biden, who is 79, was older than Reagan.
Biden “looks older than just a few years ago,” according to the article, which the Times said was compiled from many conversations with unnamed sources.

Former presidential adviser David Gergen remarked, “I do feel it’s inappropriate to seek that office after you’re 80 or in your 80s.”
“I have just turned 80 and I have found over the last two or three years I think it would have been unwise for me to try to run any organization. You’re not quite as sharp as you once were,” he stated.

Some say the number of years a person has lived does not dictate competence.
“Right now, there’s no evidence that the age of Biden should matter one ounce,” S. Jay Olshansky, a longevity specialist at the University of Illinois Chicago, said. “If people don’t like his policies, they don’t like what he says, that’s fine, they can vote for someone else. But it’s got nothing to do with how old he is.” CONTINUE READING…
