Every day seems to elicit more evidence that Joe Biden’s capacity for running America is diminishing. Victor Davis Hanson suggests it’s failing at “a geometric rate.” Hanson suggests that Biden should go, but that America is hesitant to make that decision because leaders have so rarely been asked to depart the White House.
Where Is the 25th Amendment Talk Now?
After discussing the 25th Amendment procedure for removing a president throughout Donald Trump’s tenure, the left has gone silent on such measures. Hanson writes:
The Left knows that they were on record from 2017-2020 with incessant 25th Amendment coup talk and went so low as to wheel out a Yale psychiatrist to claim Trump was crazy and needed an intervention removal. Their constant haranguing forced Trump to take the Montreal Cognitive Assessment—which he aced and which Joe Biden most assuredly will not take, nor will be encouraged to take.
Apparently, Biden’s handlers believe in the next three years he can imitate the last few months of Woodrow Wilson’s presidency, where the inactive president was kept incommunicado in bed while the wall of his family and close associates deluded the country and lied about Wilson’s true health condition.
Are They Afraid of Kamala Harris?
What lies beyond Joe Biden for Democrats? During 2021, Kamala Harris proved only that her 1% support in the Democrat primaries was generous. VDH goes on:
Kamala Harris plays a bad Spiro Agnew. True, she is so incompetent that calls to ask Biden to step down resemble the early voices who asked the same of Nixon but were met with, “So you want Agnew?”
But unlike Agnew who resigned in disgrace after pleading nolo contendere to a single charge of tax evasion, Kamala Harris is in no legal jeopardy. And so, the idea of a “President Harris” who is not non compos mentis apparently is more frightening to the public than keeping Joe Biden who is non compos mentis. And thus, talk of Biden’s diminishing capacity always is interrupted by “So you want President Harris?”
In the end, we are left only with such ironies. The Left, which damned John McCain for selecting Sarah Palin as his running mate, is mute about the far less qualified Kamala Harris as an actual vice president. The matters of race and gender preferences that ensured the incompetent Harris her job are now transmogrified into matters of racism that supposedly explain the charges of her critics.
Ironies of 2021
Those Americans in 2020 who claimed their president was all too real, know now they voted in a president who is all too false.
Those Americans who thought up every conceivable legal and illegal way of forcing the hated Trump out of office are racking their brains in vain to use those talents to find just one way of easing out their beloved Joe Biden.
