In a shocking turn of events, the notoriously left-leaning New York Times has published not one, not two, but three opinion pieces criticizing President Joe Biden. Can you believe it? The Times, usually a cheerleader for all things Democrat, is starting to doubt old Sleepy Joe. It seems like even they can’t ignore his obvious mental decline anymore.
The first article, written by the Times’ own editorial board, called Biden’s recent press conference “a dark moment for Mr. Biden’s presidency.” Ouch, that’s gotta hurt. They said that instead of reassuring the American people about his memory, Biden’s emotional and snappish responses only further raised questions about his cognitive sharpness. Even the Times can see that Biden’s fitness to lead is seriously in question.
But this newfound skepticism from the Times doesn’t mean they suddenly love Republicans. Oh, no. They’re just really, really afraid that Biden can’t beat Trump in 2024. They know that hiding Biden away and hoping no one notices his mental deterioration won’t cut it. They’re desperate for Democrats to come up with a better plan, and they’re not afraid to say it.
In another op-ed, Maureen Dowd, a longtime Times columnist, called on Biden to stop hiding the truth about his declining mental health. She didn’t outright say he shouldn’t be the nominee in 2024, but she did criticize Democrats for not having a better plan to deal with Biden’s major weakness. It’s clear that even Dowd can see the writing on the wall.
Finally, political analyst Ross Douthat didn’t mince words. In his piece titled “The Question Is Not If Biden Should Step Aside. It’s How,” he flat out said that Biden should not be running for re-election. Oof, that’s gotta sting. Douthat compared Biden to a dimming lightbulb, barely hanging on. It’s clear that the Times is starting to see what conservatives have been saying all along: Biden just can’t hold it together anymore.
Look, I know it’s shocking to see the Times doubting their beloved Biden. But maybe, just maybe, they’re onto something. Biden’s mental decline is not something we can ignore. We need a strong, capable leader in the White House, not someone who can barely string a sentence together. The sooner Democrats face that fact, the better off they’ll be. It’s time for a reality check, folks.
