We’ve heard whispers about the presidential debates being canceled for months now. And they’re all driven by the same thing. Joe Biden is deathly afraid of leaving his basement and showing his true face to the American people.
Now, a major columnist has put Biden on notice – he should cancel the debates if he wants to win.
Peter Lucas, writing in the Boston Herald, comments:
If President Trump wants to debate Joe Biden he will have to break into Biden’s basement.
Because Joe Biden is not coming out for a while, no way.
And why should he? He is ahead in the polls; he is raising substantial campaign funds and he is protected by a dishonest media.
It is bad enough that he can barely put two coherent sentences together without losing his train of thought and meandering into space with a thousand-yard stare. He even flubs it when he is reading, or trying to read, words on a teleprompter, as he did again the other day.
All good points – but the reality is that Biden has committed to three presidential debates. Any move towards backing off of that commitment would be viewed as an ultimate sign of weakness.
While 77, Biden’s age, is not old these days, Biden is an old 77.
It is becoming increasingly clear to his handlers, the media and the public that Trump would demolish Biden in a single one-on-one debate, let alone the three that have been agreed upon.
Biden can barely make sense speaking in a controlled situation with a couple of teleprompters in front of him. Facing Trump one on one in a 90-minute televised debate would be throwing him to the wolves.
