Another Damaging Report Wallops Joe Biden Putting Him In Unprecedented Territory
President Joe Biden is in unprecedented territory.
For the second time in just two weeks, left-wing media outlets are demanding Joe Biden not run for reelection in 2024.
In just 18 months, the Democratic party is starting to demand that their leader step down at the end of his term. For now, the writers at The Atlantic were nice merely stating that Joe Biden is too old to run again.

Let me put this bluntly: Joe Biden should not run for reelection in 2024. He is too old.
Biden will turn 80 on November 20. He will be 82 if and when he begins a second term. The numbers just keep getting more ridiculous from there. “It’s not the 82 that’s the problem. It’s the 86,” one swing voter said in a recent focus group, referring to the hypothetical age Biden would be at the end of that (very) hypothetical second term.
In recent weeks, I’ve spoken with 10 official and unofficial advisers to the administration who have spent time around the president during these deranged and divided days in America. “What has this been like for him?” is what I’ve been asking them, essentially. “How is he holding up?”
They say, for the most part, that Biden is coping fine. You know, despite the 8.6 percent inflation, his depressed approval numbers, his vice president’s worse approval numbers, the looming wipeout in the midterms, and all the other delights attending to Biden as he awaits the big, round-numbered birthday he has coming up in a few months. But here’s another recurring theme I keep hearing, notably from people predisposed to liking the president. “He just seems old,” one senior administration official told me at a social function a few weeks ago.
For now, writers and Democrat officials are being polite and using his age as an excuse because if they cite his policies it would condemn them all. After Carter, Republicans held the presidency until the 1992 presidential election and the question is how long can the Democrats put up with Joe Biden.
By the time Biden’s term is over, Democrats aren’t going to be able to win an election for dog catcher.
