And he still probably got 80% of the truck driver vote.

That picture is so bizarre I had to go look for the source. The video is on youtube. It appears to be from a meeting with the trucking industry and he was simply horsing around in the truck cab. It looks bizarre, and heaven knows I'm not a fan, but I'm not going to criticize him for not looking hollywood.

The problem was never that Trump didn't look 'Hollywood,' but that he never looked presidential and, that 'simply horsing around' described most of his tenure.

Anyone else hold their breath while Biden was at the wheel?

I don't know how good an idea that was.

This week Biden has not once:

1) Said Obama was born in Kenya.

2) Tried to buy Greenland.

He did, however:
3) Actually drive the truck.

Yup. But I bet he made great truck sounds sitting behind the wheel of that truck.

Oh right, boasting of Biden's physical ability. Oh goodness. He can't climb stairs. He's a frail old man who can't speak 2 sentences without forgetting where he is. Like I mentioned above, he should be relaxing on a lake and looking forward to dinner at 4:30 like others his age. He can afford any retirement home he wants. Why he wanted to be president I'll never know.

But hey, if Biden is "progress" for you, take what you can get, right? I shouldn't fault you. Feel good about what you can. Life is short.

I find it always interesting those that mistake Mr Biden's speech impediment for mental decline. He stutters; he's done that his entire life. He uses tricks like slowing his language as a known method to keep from stuttering.

As for mental acuity, which is a different question, there are common ways to measure. In that regard, to my knowledge he has not reduced his vocabulary in his informal (i.e. not prepared) interactions with the public.

If you want to bring a legitimate issue to the table, I'm listening. But the DATA says Mr Biden is doing well from a mental ability. I do not follow issues tied to his gait, etc., but the prior occupant of the White House clearly lost his ability to walk properly from the time he started his Presidency and the end. Most guess that it was a small stroke, or other, related compromise to his motor cortex.

He hasn't stuttered his whole life. I watched a C-Span video from 1994, when he was busy putting black men in jail for selling dimebags of weed, and for 10 minutes he was speaking on the floor of the Senate, fluidly, calmly, and with 0 speech impediments.

The speech impediment thing was created before the election as a plausible deniability item to explain his mental decline and the difficulty speaking that comes with it. He's old.

Don't fall for this speech impediment BS. Watch some old C-Span.

[www.theatlantic.com]

Stuttering is a neurological disorder that affects roughly 70 million people, about 3 million of whom live in the United States. It has a strong genetic component: Two-thirds of stutterers have a family member who actively stutters or used to. Biden's uncle on his mother's side--"Uncle Boo-Boo," as he was called--stuttered his whole life...

By all accounts, Biden was both popular and a strong athlete in high school. He was class president at Archmere Academy, in Claymont, Delaware. His nickname was "Dash"--not a reference to his speed on the football field, but rather another way to mock his stutter. "It was like Morse code--dot dot dot, dash dash dash dash," Biden says. "Even though by that time I started to overcome it."...

Bill Bowden had the locker next to Biden's at Archmere. I called Bowden recently. "It was just kind of a funny thing, you know?" he told me. "Hopefully he wasn't hurt by it." Bob Markel, another high-school buddy of Biden's, went a little further when we spoke: "H-H-H-H-Hey, J-J-J-J-J-Joe B-B-B-B-Biden'--that's how he'd be addressed." Markel said the Archmere guys called him "Stutterhead," or "Hey, Stut!" for short. He fears that he himself may have made fun of Biden once or twice. "I never remember him being offended. He probably was," Markel said. "I think one of his coping mechanisms was to not show it."...

How about this article, that literally talks about this exact issue:

[niemanreports.org]

'Journalists should provide audiences with as much information as possible about the health and well-being of people trying to lead the wealthiest nation on the planet. That means sometimes asking uncomfortable questions, even about a candidate’s mental health. But there is a responsible way to do it. And it can’t be done if journalists aren’t willing to educate themselves about Biden’s lifelong speaking struggle, which can be done by interviewing speech therapists who specialize in stuttering.'

I personally knew about his stuttering when he was VP.

We’ll have the better part of four years to find out how well he speaks extemporaneously. At least he doesn’t have to lie everyday in order to salve his fragile ego like the last guy.

Internet unearths Joe Biden’s touching 1994 letter to a boy with a speech impediment

...Remember what I told you about stuttering. You can beat it just like I did. When you do, you will be a stronger man for having won. Also remember, every time you are tempted to make fun of someone with a problem, how it feels when you are made fun of. Treat everyone with respect and you will be respected yourself.

Your friend, Joe Biden

Be clear..be %^&$%^&real. At the time, everybody was putting black men in jail for selling dimes bags of weed.
If you're gonna try to be accurate, then please be accurate..It wasn't just Biden pushing that wagon..
The congressional black caucus was on board..plenty of black groups out in the communities supported it.
that was the early 90's and the hoods were out of control because of the crack influx.

The stutter was well documented..wtf are you talking about? It's fairly normal with folks that come to manage a stutter, that it returns from time to time..especially in old age.

The sneakiest aspect of the stuttering deception is how Joe built and took a time machine back to 2007 and rewrote and republished his autobiography “Promises to Keep” so that it would support a ploy dreamed up in 2019. Oh, that wily coyote!

While it doesn't have the sort of range that ranch and large farm drivers need, it's good enough for work/commute truck use for most other drivers.

If anyone's not that familiar with stuttering (like me!) and the sheer variety of ways it can show, here's a good look at Biden's situation, from the perspective of someone who suffers from it: [www.youtube.com] ... I think she does a really good job of explaining the ways that the stuttering can manifest and affect the stutterer's life as a whole.

Whatever you do, don't watch that. Believe what you've read and what you've written instead.

He nearly amounts to what I would call a "decent" orator in that clip. Not a stutter in sight.

As for Biden's mass incarceration of black men for selling weed, you're right. It's ok because other were doing it too. Other than that, he's a pioneer of civil rights and uplifting the Black community.

He was full D.A.R.E., the private incarceration's brainchild. Private prison industry stocks went way, way up... entire industries created from whole cloth... lots of money to be made off the backs of poor people.

Just to address the issue of stuttering: you seem to be convinced of the assumption that a stutterer cannot speak fluently and consistently in public, and even for extended periods of time. That is a wrong assumption: watch the YouTube I posted for a good example of a stutterer who is (mostly) fluent. Stuttering is a very complex disease and-- as pointed out by the YouTube speaker-- can get better or worse with age (usually someone who stutters into adolescence will do so for the rest of their lives).

I did watch the video (at least some of it, not all the 2+ hours of it!). Yes, his speech was seemingly much better then. But as I and others have pointed out, stuttering manifests in different ways, and can get better and worse over time, and the idea that he has just somehow suddenly developed the stuttering excuse as a cover for supposed dementia is simply untrue. The young woman in the YouTube I posted, as a stutterer herself, is able to catch the points at which Joe (or other stutterers) are having difficulties. In the comments, she also mentions covert stuttering, which is likely an explanation for some of his public appearances where he seems not to be stuttering. Joe himself apparently doesn't think of himself as a stutterer, or at least he tries not to: [www.youtube.com] ... one assumes that it's an incredibly painful thing for him, and so he probably doesn't want to speak about it publicly that much.

I don't think so ... he's on camera speaking quite a bit, and his speech ranges from seemingly fluent and free of stuttering/word skipping, to occasional evidence of the stuttering: [www.youtube.com] ... if you watch him carefully, you can see points at which he clearly trips over the words. And my impression is that he's reading off a teleprompter / using pre-prepared remarks, so you can't really say that it's anything other than the stuttering.

Biden is averaging 6 press conferences/year.

Recent presidents averaged over 20, and Bush I averaged well over 30.

Ummm, but you're speaking of someone who hasn't even been in office a whole year yet... actually only a grand total of four months so far! (Though it has seemed like a lot longer...)

He needs 18 press conferences in just 8 months -- one every 2 weeks -- to hit lower than the low average for recent presidents.

Do you think he'll hit that? Not a chance. They're keeping him off the mic because of gaffes/stuttering/senility, however you want to term it.

Ehhhh, I'm not worried about the number of press conferences he holds. I'm more concerned about the job he's doing, which thus far has been excellent, so far as I'm concerned. And I suspect that the reason for the less frequent press conferences is because he's been busy ... it's not like there's a pandemic or anything going on right now. grinning smiley
