Is Joe okay? Biden Mumbles Through His First Speech as 2020 Presidential Candidate

“I want to thank Rich Fritzgerald, the county executive for — the baladanny — the Alleghengy County executive for being here.”

Former Vice President Joe Biden gave his first speech as a Democrat presidential candidate in Pennsylvania on Monday, but it didn’t go that well as the 77-year-old man stumbled through the speech.

This is weird to me because when giving one-on-one interviews on TV Biden comes across as a well spoken adult.

From Grabien:

He opened: “I want to thank Rich Fritzgerald, the county executive for — the baladanny — the Alleghengy County executive for being here.”

“The country wasn’t built by Wall St. bankers, CEOs, and hudge — heh — and hedge fund managers,” Biden stammered during what was supposed to be a headline moment.

At various points he stumbled over words like “dignity,” “successful,” and “hospitals.” Occasionally words were entirely indecipherable.

“Union workers, the UAW took extredable — cuts in their pensions and their future and the less to get GM working,” Biden said.

Breitbart’s John Nolte, my former coworker, noted that vitality is important for a presidential candidate. Look at President Barack Obama. Nolte called him “No Drama Obama; Calm, Cool Obama; Steady, Ready Obama — the guy who kept his opponents on constant defense, who ran against a neurotic (John McCain) who quit his campaign to save the economy and a weakling (Mitt Romney) who allowed CNN’s Candy Crowley make a public ass out of him.”

If Biden wins the presidency, he will be 78-years-old.

Nolte also compared Biden to Sen. Bernie Sanders, who is also 77-years-old. He doesn’t appear as frail or bumbly. During debates, rallies, and interviews, he has given us the impression that old age has not slowed him down.

This is the first time I’ve seen Biden like this. Yes, he has had goofy moments and off-the-wall remarks, but he also seemed to be confident and well-spoken. I’m guessing this was a prepared speech. Maybe he’s better with quick thinking than a prepared speech? I imagine in some interviews he’s given the questions beforehand.

Then again, this isn’t the first time around for Biden. since it’s his third presidential campaign. He has remained at the top of the polls since polling began for the Democrat presidential candidates. The latest shows he received a huge bump since his announcement. This is his first chance to actually make it.

I watched a few of his old rallies, whether it was for vice president or support for other candidates running for public office. He didn’t have many problems while speaking.

Here’s what I think. Biden wasn’t himself. I’ve said before Biden could become a huge challenge to Trump because he is likable, make people laugh, and comes across as relatable. Maybe next time just use points and improvise the rest.

Restrained Biden is not Biden. He needs be himself. Off-the-cuff Biden makes people laugh, which relaxes them and makes them comfortable. His gaffes make him relatable since Lord knows we all do that.

Did he try to perform any public miracles, like touching a cripple woman in a wheelchair on the neck and shoulders and making her stand and walk again? LOL.

Uncle Joe is dummer than a post. He’ll get a pass on everything he does or says from now through the nomination. No worry that.

But sometime, somehow — if Biden gets the nomination —he’ll have to debate Trump. HE WILL GET CRUSHED. Like Trump or not, he’s one glib dude. He’ll show Uncle Joe to be the doddering old fool that he is.

Gonna be fun to watch. Knowing the press, they’ll accuse Trump of bullying old Joe.

Maybe he’s better with quick thinking than a prepared speech?

Probably don’t have to put much weight on this option.

Botox side-effect. Just ask Nancy. Makes you forget words and slurs your speech. Joe should wait a couple of days after his botox sessions before speaking in public.

Quick and SHALLOW thinking.

The only worthy opponent for him to debate is the Mandela funeral sign language guy. They both wave their arms around spasmodically.

SO many many women to fondle he got overloaded.

Stroke is no Joke.

What I would like to know is why the Senator from MBNA is complaining about banks?

“Then again, this isn’t the first time around for Biden. since it’s his third presidential campaign.”

That’s right, and he absolutely cratered the first two times.

He needed a nap. I should know.

Joe hasn’t been OK for years

    He has been noticeably tasteless since he was decaffeinated to produce a progressive [cup of] Joe.

Biden is a little slow without a cup of joe.

Why is the author giving Uncle Joe advice on how to improve his game? Never Trump bitterness?

He should name Pelosi as his running mate and run on the Incoherent Gibberish platform.

It seemed to me his upper lip was semi-paralyzed, or malfunctioning.

He was just drunk from the pow wow in Liz Warren’s kitchen.

Fifty years of corruption, betrayal and idiocy takes its toll.

Doesn’t come across as sober.

The old man doesn’t have the stamina that President Trump has!

The plugs are starting to look like an old carpet that needs replacing — too much wear and tear, and foot traffic. Is he unenergetic, or what. Does he drink like Hillary? He is slurring his words too.

Seeing as two of his three adult children have been arrested for cocaine (one losing his Naval commission over it), the apples may not have fallen far from the tree.

Brain damage caused by brain bleeds.
