Now even the radical left thinks Joe Biden is too old to be president.
Fox: “President Joe Biden is too old to be president for former Clinton Labor Secretary Robert Reich, according to a new op-ed on Sunday.
Reich, who also served in President Obama’s economic transition advisory board, joined the growing number of media and Democrats showing concern over Biden’s age in a piece for The Guardian.”

“At 79, Joe Biden is the oldest president in American history. Concerns about his age top the list for why Democratic voters want the party to find an alternative for 2024,” Reich wrote. “I don’t think this reflects an ‘ageist’ prejudice against those who have reached such withering heights so much as an understanding that people in their late 70s and 80s wither. It’s not death that’s the worrying thing about a second Biden term. It’s the dwindling capacities that go with aging,” Reich explained.
As for Reich, “I’m also noticing less patience, perhaps because of an unconscious ‘use by’ timer now clicking away. I’m less tolerant of long waiting lines, automated phone menus, and Republicans,” he added. “How the hell does Biden maintain tact or patience when he has to deal with Joe Manchin?” Nothing to do with age. Reich, as his name implies, is just a fascist who has no patience for political opposition.
“Santayana said old people have forebodings about the future because they cannot imagine a world that’s good without themselves in it. I don’t share that view. To the contrary, I think my generation-including Bill and Hillary, George W., Trump, Newt Gingrich, Clarence Thomas, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and Biden-have f*cked it up royally. The world will probably be better without us. Joe, please don’t run,” Reich closed.
Republicans don’t think it’s necessarily age. It’s Biden. “He’s a terrible president, which, you know, probably doesn’t have anything to do with this age,” Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., said. “I think… the talk about his age is a way that Democrats are coming to terms with the fact that he is not fit to be president. He’s been a terrible president, his policies are awful.”
Hawley added: “They can’t bring themselves to admit that their policies are awful, because all the Democrats support those same policies.”
“I’m sure some will,” Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., said of voters who would consider Biden’s age. “But the fact of the matter is President Biden is an experienced and capable leader who has shepherded us through the pandemic. We’re at a point now where we have created jobs – we’ve recovered all of the jobs lost in the botched pandemic response of the Trump administration.” Johnson is known by both parties as the dumbest person in Congress. He thought Guam could sink.
“Regardless of your age, it’s what you’re capable of doing. Seniority should never be a reason for anything unless there are amazing results coming along with it from collective experience,” Senator Mike Braun said. “I think I’d be worried if I were him in that it looks like the movement is mostly coming from his own party. That would be concerning.”
