Mark Leibovich, a staff writer for the Atlantic, affirms that Joe Biden needs to decline to bid for re-election and also “could instantly burnish his personal legacy” through doing this. Even while White House Officials and other leftist pundits praise the dottering 79-year-old, many must know the truth.
“Let me put this bluntly: Joe Biden should not run for reelection in 2024. He is too old,” Leibovich wrote.
“Biden is fit to faithfully execute his duties, the White House physician said in his most recent health summary,” Leibovich claimed, adding “The question is: Should he? The answer: Sure, for now. But not a day after January 20, 2025.”
Biden, that was vowed in 2015 at the grow older of 78, is actually the oldest person ever before to act as president. He would be 82 years of age at the start of a second term as well as 86 by the edge of it. In December, the president claimed that he has the intention to run for re-election just as long as he possesses “good health.”
Leibovich kept that “Biden could instantly burnish his own legacy by opting out of 2024. He would be praised for knowing when to step aside, for putting the interests of his party and country before himself, and for selflessly turning things over to the next acts.”
“Everyone loves an elder statesman. A historic credit would be due to Joe Biden,” Leibovich wrote. “He spared the country from more Trump in 2020. He stepped in, calmed the thing down, and God love ya for that, Joey. He should be thanked up and down the Rehoboth boardwalk, ice-cream cone in hand, sooner rather than later.”
Leftist CNN host Don Lime just recently inquired White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre whether ol’ Joe has the bodily and mental stamina to serve past 2024.
“I can’t even keep up with him,” Jean-Pierre said. “That is not a question that we should be even asking. Just look at the work that he does.”

“The presidency is a monstrously taxing job and the stark reality is the president would be closer to 90 than 80 at the end of a second term, and that would be a major issue,” David Axelrod said, according to the New York Times.
“Biden doesn’t get the credit he deserves for steering the country through the worst of the pandemic, passing historic legislation, pulling the NATO alliance 8together against Russian aggression and restoring decency and decorum to the White House,” Axelrod said. “And part of the reason he doesn’t is performative. He looks his age and isn’t as agile in front of a camera as he once was, and this has fed a narrative about competence that isn’t rooted in reality.”
