The RNC (Republican National Committee has launched a new and devastating attack on Joe Biden. Normally I do not like anyone picking on them infirm but the infirm normally doesn’t run for president. Therefore, I find that I must make an exception.
The ad features comments from fellow Democrats Cory Booker, Bret Baier, and David Axlerod. The title is an apt “Unfit to Lead”. The ad shows Biden trying to speak in complete sentences and failing very badly at it, followed the comments by his peers in the party.
Narrator: It’s 3 a.m. and your children are safe and asleep. But there’s a phone in the White House and it’s ringing, something is happening in the world. Your vote will decide will who answers that call.
Booker: There’s a lot of people who are concerned about Joe Biden.
Axelrod: He kind bumps along kind of Mr. Magooing his way through this.
Baier: There were some answers Shannon, that were word salad. I mean they were just all over the map.
“Americans are starting to see firsthand that Joe Biden is unfit to lead, a concern Democrats themselves have expressed since he launched his campaign,” RNC spokesman Steve Guest said in a statement. “At a time when law and order is under attack, the choice is clear: leave the security of our nation in the hands of an incompetent lifelong politician who supports defunding the police, or trust President Trump to prioritize the safety of the American people.”
Then-candidate Julian Castro tore into Biden over the issue of fitness for office after he appeared to contradict himself on healthcare.
“The difference between what I support and what you support, Vice President Biden, is that you require them to opt in, and I would not require them to opt in,” Castro said. “They would automatically be enrolled, they wouldn’t have to buy in.”
“They do not have to buy in,” Biden responded.
“Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago?” Castro fired back. “Are you forgetting already what you said just two minutes ago? I can’t believe that you said two minutes ago that they had to buy in, and now you’re saying they don’t have to — you’re forgetting that.”
