It is evident to any individual possessing even a tiniest amount of rationality or sense that President Joe Biden is approaching his final days in office rather than embarking on his inaugural one.
This expression is intended to be factual and not intended in any derogatory way.
Therefore, the only point of contention is how near the president, who is 80 years old, is to retiring.
The expectation of numerous Americans who are struggling to make ends meet is that Biden’s career will conclude within the next year.
Conservatives and Republicans alike are anticipating the end of the world in the general election of 2024, for the most apparent of reasons.
Both of those demographic groups have ample reason to be concerned about the performance of the incumbent president. However, according to a report published on Monday, Biden’s inner circle shares those concerns as well.
And it goes without saying: That’s bad, bad news for the president.
A blistering Politico Magazine piece headlined “Here’s How Biden Can Turn It Around” (talk about damning with faint praise) largely tried to lay out how the president could overcome his sagging poll numbers.
However, beneath the elaborate strategizing to right the ship was an intriguing, albeit foreboding, acknowledgment from Team Biden: The vessel is sinking.
Consider the rhetoric employed by Jonathan Martin of Politico as he attempted to deflect attention from the president’s faltering re-election campaign.
“For Biden to win reelection, however, he must make changes. I spoke with dozens of Democrats and anti-Trump Republicans about what the president can do on personnel, presentation and strategy to improve his prospects. Their suggestions (pleadings?) are below,” Martin wrote.
“The level of despair was striking,” he continued. “Since beginning this column a year ago, I’ve written repeatedly about the chasm between what Democrats say in private versus public about Biden. Yet perhaps not since [Donald] Trump’s 2016 election have the party’s leaders and lawmakers been so alarmed.”
Following his observation that “Biden is indeed in peril,” Martin launched into a tirade analyzing one of the most significant and difficult to rectify factors contributing to his predicament: his advanced age and the unchangeable progression of time.
“2024 will be an extraordinary election, and it demands extraordinary measures,” Martin wrote. “That’s in part for reasons Biden refuses to accept: his capacity to do the job.
“The oldest president in history when he first took the oath, Biden will not be able to govern and campaign in the manner of previous incumbents. He simply does not have the capacity to do it, and his staff doesn’t trust him to even try, as they make clear by blocking him from the press.
“Biden’s bid will give new meaning to a Rose Garden campaign, and it requires accommodation to that unavoidable fact of life.”

The sentiments of the president’s inner circle appear to be aligning with those that have been apparent to the majority of the nation for months, if not years.
This waning confidence in Biden is entirely explicable in light of the Democrat Party’s ostensibly remaining arrow: attacks, attacks, and more attacks against former President Donald Trump, the leading Republican candidate for 2024.
Based on the former president’s extensive list of criminal charges and Martin’s assessment of Biden’s intention to “increase his focus on Trump,” it is evident that the objective is to discredit Trump rather than to promote Biden, which would be an exceedingly more challenging endeavor.
(Moreover, if the audience’s response to Trump at UFC 295 is any indication, it is not working.)
In an ironic turn of events, Martin ridiculed the notion that a prominent figure—for instance, former first lady Michelle Obama—could succeed the aging president as the Democratic candidate for the 2024 presidential election.
Joseph Robinette Biden Jr., however, “does not have the capacity” to lead this nation, according to both himself and the Biden campaign.
America requires another four years of Biden’s uninspiring “leadership” in light of its current condition.
