The New York Times published an opinion piece on President Biden stepping aside signalling a massive shift among Democrats on the idea of Biden exiting the presidential race.
A year ago, talk of Biden stepping aside in 2024 was only entertained by fringe elements of the Democrat Party. Now mainstream entities like the New York Times are openly discussing the merits of the idea.
This came after a report from Special Counsel Robert Hur that found that Biden was too elderly and feeble to prosecute for mishandling classified documents.
If Biden is too old and feeble to face prosecution, he's too old to serve a 2nd term as President of the United States.
Furthermore, this is massive vindication for former President Donald Trump who has been calling Biden "sleepy" since 2020.
Biden was able to cover up his age during the 2020 presidential election thanks to a greater focus on his opponent.
However, after four years of being in the White House, Biden is no longer able to get away with talking about Trump 24/7.
Americans are unhappy with the direction of the country and President Biden is primarily responsible for that.
Rising inflation and chaos around the world has left Americans yearning for the Trump years.
Now with the official report from Hur vindicating Trump's comments about Biden's age and mental capabilities, the writing is on the wall and the Democrat Party is looking for an exit.
The issue is Democrats are running out of time to force Biden to step aside and find his replacement to face Trump in November.
Biden is too old and feeble to serve for another four years but Democrats don't have many options outside of Biden to run against Trump, who is arguably more popular than he has ever been.
Trump's momentum looks unstoppable and whoever replaces Biden will be woefully behind if they have to jump in.
Names like California Governor Gavin Newsom and Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer are at the top of the list to replace Biden. But there are real questions of if they have what it takes for the big leagues.
