Stop Blaming Biden’s Age—It’s the Democrat Party Agenda Unraveling His Campaign

Following Joe Biden’s cataclysmic debate performance, the corporate media and political pundit class have been relentlessly zeroed in on the question that’s on nearly every voter’s mind: will Biden remain in the race?

But while Biden’s political fate of course remains a crucial topic, lurking underneath the headlines is a nasty indifference to Biden’s wellbeing that reveals just how repulsive the Democrat Party machine is—and the extraordinary lengths to which they’ll go to preserve their grip on power.

While most left-wing pundits and Democrat officials have claimed that the reason for Biden’s historic unpopularity is his age and strikingly senile appearance, in reality voters first began turning away from Biden in droves because he faithfully adopted the modern Democrat Party’s extremist progressive agenda.

After all, Biden’s polling collapse began long before his debate night debacle. It was failures like Afghanistan and 40-year-high inflation that, far more than any age-related gaffes, have put him on the outs with voters.

Moreover, national polling indicates that possible alternatives to Biden—including Kamala Harris, Gavin Newsom, and Gretchen Whitmer—are also losing head-to-head matchups versus Donald Trump, an evident sign that voters are rejecting not merely Biden the man, but also the Biden agenda, which was foisted upon him by the progressive wing of the Democrat Party.

Tellingly, the same people and entities now calling for Biden’s resignation and deriding him as unfit to serve a second term are precisely the same figures who conspired to make him the nominee when the vast majority of Democrats did not, in fact, want to elevate him as their party’s standard-bearer.

Biden’s come-from-behind victory in the 2020 Democrat primaries, even after badly losing both the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary (at which point the media acknowledged his campaign was “on life support”), can be largely accredited to a Democrat establishment and mainstream media crusade to coalesce the party’s base behind Biden, who was seen as a more electable alternative to Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont.

Biden then went on to win a vast majority of remaining primary contests, including in South Carolina and most Super Tuesday races, appearing to indicate the establishment’s outsized role in boosting Biden in the primaries and ostensibly helping him cross the finish line in the general election. Democrats’ present qualms about Biden’s old age were of no concern to them—at least publicly—in the months leading up to the 2020 election.

Who, then, do the media and Democrats to blame beyond themselves for Biden’s easily predictable slate of failures as president?

As much as political pundits and elected officials on both sides of the aisle like to blame Biden’s age for the perilous state of his campaign, we can only blame the president so much. In the end, Biden is merely a creation of the same left-wing establishment that is now working overtime to expel him from office.

To Democrats and left-wing media operatives, Biden’s senility and feeblemindedness is nothing more than an obstacle in their quest for power and dominion. As such, in their minds, he no longer serves a purpose. Given that he is now undeniably ill-equipped to continue advancing their ideological agenda, they are desperately trying to drop him from the ticket without a second thought—a sign that they never truly cared about Biden in the first place, but only the utilitarian purpose he served four years ago.

Ultimately, though party leaders have been shy to admit it, Biden’s unpopularity stems from the derangement his entire party has embodied since the 2016 election: the Green New Deal, the open borders and “Abolish ICE” movements, the Russia Hoax hysteria, the “anti-racism” and DEI movements, and the kneejerk opposition to Trump’s successful foreign policy.

On the economic front, Biden’s tenure has been defined by historically high inflation, which has reached a cumulative rate of nearly 20 percent. This inflation is the direct result of his adoption of the far-left priorities of his party in Congress, as embodied in a series of massive spending bills packed with DEI initiatives and hundreds of billions of dollars for environmental craziness straight out of the Green New Deal.

The same pattern holds true for the crisis on the southern border. Under Trump, Democrats became militantly in favor of open borders. They universally called for mass amnesty. Democrat senators also demanded that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) be abolished entirely.

Biden’s immigration policies are simply the natural extension of this insanity. Biden reversed nearly every policy that secured the southern border during the Trump years immediately upon taking office, including stopping border wall construction, reducing deportations, and ending “Remain in Mexico,” a policy which ended the practice of “catch and release” into the United States and instead forced illegal aliens to wait for their court hearings in Mexico.

Biden also mandated a functional shutdown of ICE, going so far as to implement what the administration calls “protected areas” in which ICE is not permitted to enter. During his first 100 days in office, Biden issued 94 executive orders overturning the immigration policies of the Trump administration and advancing the party’s open borders agenda.

On the foreign policy front, thanks to Biden policies that were merely an extension of the Obama-era Democrat platform, war is now raging not only in Ukraine, but also in the Middle East—imperiling American safety and security and ushering the world into a state of global chaos.

Each of these outcomes does not suggest that Biden is uniquely unfit for office, but rather the failures of the radical Democrat establishment that enabled him.

It is increasingly important for American voters to understand that the primary problem isn’t Biden. The fundamental problem is the party. These outcomes would have been the same no matter what left-wing puppet the Democrat establishment chose as its standard-bearer in 2020.

So long as Biden remains in the race, Republicans should by all means continue campaigning on his obvious signs of mental and physical decline. But the stronger—and ultimately more effective—line of attack for conservatives this election season will be hammering the fact that Biden’s disastrous and failing presidency is a result of his willingly and faithfully implementing a long list of far-left demands presented to him by progressive activists who now wield control over the entire Democrat Party.

If any Democrat—Biden or not—wins the White House this fall, that record of failure and extremism will only continue.

It was obvious during the 2020 campaign that Biden was in poor health: physically and mentally. I posted on-line during that time that his family and people in his campaign should be charged with “elder abuse”-even more so now. Biden is not a “good man” – as more evidence reveals, he is part and parcel of a major crime family. Despite that, it is still criminal what his own family is doing to him.

We simply cannot let a Demorat in the white house! More importantly, we must be sure to flip the Senate to Republican and keep the house. If we do not do ths, it won’t matter if a Republican is in the white house. Vote Republican up and down your balot, or we lose this country.

Didn’t win the 2020 election far & square, he stole it. And he will do it again in 2024. Biden has been in public office over 50 years & he hasn’t done anything to help our country. He has made it worse.

It’s not his age, it’s his mental facility. Numerous doctors have said it’s classic Parkinson’s dementia. And a Parkinson’s specialist has been to the white house 8 times in 8 months. Everyone knows people in their 90’s sharp as a tack, and people in their 60’s with problems. The lying democrat party and fake news have been hiding it to naive Americans but the debate blew up on the lies.

You are right. It is not Biden’s age that has messed things up so bad, it is the agenda of the Democrat Party that is trying their best to force their socialist/communist agenda on us. I don’t use the terminology “socialist/communist” lightly. But since they identify as “Progressives” I will once again point out according to the dictionary this term is defined as “socialist/ communist. Look it up and see for yourself. This is their ploy to use a term that seems harmless but in reality it is dangerous to our constitutional republic.

Bingo! The problem is that if Biden loses, they will put all the blame on his dementia and not his policies. All the sheeple, and clapping seals, will deliberately not see that it is his policies that are the real problem, but that is only if he loses, which he will not, once all the illegal alien and dead people votes are counted overnight, again.

Are you really surprised?? Don’t you think the president (obama), the fbi, the cia, secret service, IRA, the whole democrat party AND the fake mass media ALL knew senator then vice-president joe biden was taking classiffied documents tllegaly (probably with the presidents help) for his crime family to use to sell political influence to our enemies and agents of them for MILLIONS of dollars?? Now being a dim-witted, demented, forgetful, studdering ol’ coot he can avoid prosecution and now with his convicted felon son and power hungry wife run our Country?? God help us…PLEASE vote them out!!

The elites set the dems agenda for the New World Order. Ole Joe was not elected but installed as president. They schemed and committed fraud to follow the agenda of the WEF. The elites of the world decided who would be president and ole Joe was a good puppet. He never had any idea how to serve, had no vision for America and was happy to follow orders and have the title as President. Yesterday Kirby said that the reason NATO was meeting here in America was due to the strong leadership of Ole Joe. That was the biggest lie of the day. Just add them to all the lies they have told since Jan 2021 when Joe was installed as president. Ole Joe is not qualified to be president never was but they could manipulate him. And now we the people along with the woke and his supporters finally saw what we have been saying for the past 4 years. Now their scheme has come to light and the rats are leaving ship. Not only needs Joe to go but everyone that has been covering up the fraud that has been perpetrated on the American people. Stop covering up what you created. The truth has finally come to light for all to see. Nobody but nobody can save the democrats. Their power is over.

I would say this is not about Joe Biden and his age. this is about Satan who is in control of the United States of America. It’s about how Satan uses human life to get what he wants, and he is successful. We have to look at what’s been happening in the Democratic Party and the Republican Party. Both Parties are hungry for power which is exactly what Satan wants and there you have it.

I tire of hearing about his age. Many of us are his age or older and have perfectly functioning brains. It’s his mental limitations whatever the reason. His policies, or I should say, those of his “advisors, are the problem.

When he is coherent and understandable all I hear coming out of his mouth is lie after lie. He thinks every success of the former Trump administration is his success and every problem caused by Democrats blocking Trump’s policies is Trump’s fault. Just like blaming the immigration invasion is from Trump not finishing the border wall that Democrats fought and delayed so it could not be completed. Now we find that the UN is using our taxpayer dollars to fund the invasion in the first place with flyers telling the illegals to vote Democrat once they get into the country. Every time the Dems want to borrow more money for their nefarious policies they threaten that if they don’t get the cash neither will Social Security recipients or members of the military. You never hear them threaten welfare recipients. One Senator pointed out that they borrow from China and then turn around and vote to give China foreign aid, leaving taxpayers stuck with the bill. WAKE UP!! It is all an evil plot to throw away US sovereignty and bring us all under One World Government Control. They tell us it is for our own good, but it really is to make us slaves to the elites who think they are the only ones who want total control.

It is finally coming out that the agenda is what is critical. The complete takeover and destruction of this country is first and foremost to the Democrat Party. They have to grasp power and keep it. That’s why they are behaving in a third world Banana Republic fashion. They have totally taken over the judicial system and elections. They’ve opened the borders to over 12 million people and they want to allow them to vote in order to remain in power. They do not care what happens to the average American, they seek the destruction of this country all in the name of power. The Environmental extremists that they think are on their side are actually on the side of the CCP. This is going to be an interesting war coming up between the left wing Democrats and the CCP.

I think it’s hilarious that the democrats are backing Biden. Just a few months ago there was the Kentucky Derby. Those three yearolds have a rating system based on all previous wins. Betting and ‘odds’ are based on this system. Biden is the losing horse, has many losses, and the odds of him winning are POOR. Yet the democrats are betting on him! More power to them. HA, HA

Who said, “I want to fundamentally transform America”? There’s your architect of all of this puppetry on Biden. Trump is a total threat to that agenda. Why do you think they harassed him as POTUS, conspired against him to cheat and win in 2020? Biden is merely a tool turned demented too soon. Obama signaled what he wanted to do on Colbert’s show about having a third term, but from afar. Why is he in DC? Unfortunately we have a lot of left wing useful idiots who are either automatons to the left wing indoctrination and propaganda, or already had a bad case of TDS. The issue with left wing useful idiots and those that they once supported, those so supported ultimately turn on the useful idiot (hence the name…duh)..

You can start at the beginning of Biden’s presidency and count the failures beginning with the disaster in Afghanistan!
And now today I learned that the Democrats will all vote against a bill that prohibits Non Citizen Voting! A law in the US Constitution nut the Democrats will not honor it. Lordy me! We should have shut that gate many years ago to all foreigners!

For at least six months now, I have been telling my wife that Trump and the Republicans are making a terrible mistake by constantly attacking Biden and not his policies. Why? Because even back then, I felt that Biden would likely not be the candidate, and if that did happen, the Republican strategy would go down the drain. I said that they should attack the horrible Democrat policies and forget about criticizing Biden because those policies would remain the same regardless of the candidate.

For most of us, biden equals democrat. A defining characteristic of the democrat party is the habit of all of them agreeing in lockstep to the tenets of their platform. Groupthink. That’s why I’m surprised that several democrats recently have supported biden’s departure. We see this as an extreme move on their part, so they must think he’d lose for sure in the race against Trump.

But then, staying in power is even more important to them than supporting their leader. Whoever is in that position can be hammered into shape, after all. Now that biden has proven to be less than capable of fulfilling the obligations of the presidency–and won’t be re-elected–they’ll play the old switcheroo and substitute a more likeable and cognizant candidate…or they’ll install Kamala Harris as the Unprecedented First Black Woman To Be President before biden leaves office (regardless of her even worse likeability numbers). Wouldn’t they love to count that achievement in their very short list of accomplishments? Because nothing else matters besides checking all those little boxes, being the “first to (… …)”.

Prepare for sparks to fly as biden demands to remain the candidate while a growing number in his party push for someone else to run in November. Imagine Shrill Jill screaming at people for expressing their disappointment in her insatiable drive for power, despite Joe’s deteriorating condition.

His age has everything to do with him being able to recognize just how much he’s being led by the radical left to literally destroy this country! Some of its him doing this, but I believe the vast majority of what he’s doing is coming from his leftist handlers! He’s just too darn arrogant and narcissistic to ever believe that! Heck, this old fool still believes that he beat Trump in 2020!

Hi age really isn’t the actual issue. My almost 92 year old mother is in better condition than he is mentally and physically. Joe’s problem IS HE HAS DEMINTIA OR ALZHEIMER’S. AND he is losing his ability to think, talk and walk. I’ve known and seen people with these diseases and all their symptoms they had Joe has now and getting worse. Jill should be brought up on charges of elder abuse. They are both evil people but she’s worse for allowing it because SHE wants to be front and center. It’s really sad.

Great article! I left comments elsewhere with the same message. Republicans should be hostile to the Democratic Party platform. Republicans should seek to regain full congressional power and the presidency. As this auther explains, simply pointing out that Biden’s failing policies are Democrat policies would accomplish that.

Absolutely 100% truth! Biden is just the face of the democrat party, he isn’t actually making decisions or policies, it is the DNC and their extreme supporters. I don’t think Biden’s age is a problem, his mental acuity is the problem. The lack of mental acuity can happen at any age. Sadly, there are people of all ages that lack the mental acuity to be President. Also, the truth be known, Trump is only the face of of their hatred. The candidate could be little red riding hood and the hatred would be equally as devastating. What they hate is common sense leadership. Laws and rules and regulation that make sense for “We the People”. They want what they want, end of story!

I completely agree. Trump should not run against Biden but against the extreme liberal policies that Biden, as a feckless and confused old figurehead, simply endorses when told to do so. As said, these extreme policies ignore basic economic principles and social logic and have lead to extreme inflation, unemployment and crime that hurts lower income people the most. Unfortunately, even what might be moderate Democrats are coerced into supporting these awful policies even when they must know they are bad.

“Can Joe run again?” is not the question but should he be serving NOW? The left was pretty darn ready to Article 25 Trump but when there is clear evidence Joe is mentally incapacitated (at least outside of the hours of 1000 am to 4 pm). And these suddenly “aware” MSM pundits who are treating it like “breaking news”? Its because of them he is still in office and running… another “John Edwards” cover-up.
