    This thread is completely about bashing President Biden, the sources are biased right-wing news sources that have issues with the truth.

    Ah... well, I disagree - and if there's anyone who'd be motivated to do that, it'd be me, for a gazillion incredibly valid reasons. But that's no my intent here at all. I think this is a very serious issue - for ALL of us, regardless which side of the aisle you're on.

    If you don't have something to share re the OP, it's it's probably best you move on. :wave:

    I see no evidence that he's mentally impaired.

    Perhaps another source would be more convincing - Russia spreading disinformation about Biden's mental health: DHS

    Then again, maybe not ...

    OK - let's take a look at your OP

    Your 'evidence' that "other countries are questioning the cognitive capabilities of the President" is limited to one video from an acknowledged Murdoch owned, right-wing Australian TV channel. That's it.

    'People in this country are questioning" seems to be based solely on two articles from acknowledged right-wing US sources.

    What "mounting evidence"? Please produce this evidence.

    In post #4 @SummerMadness showed you the results of a survey where the US public expressed overall confidence in your President. This confidence would suggest the "people in this country" are not concerned about Biden's mental abilities.

    It appears that the problem you're seeing amounts to your opinion and little else.

    OB

    I think this conversation is one where there's polarized extremes being discussed and the answer is somewhere in the middle.

    I answered 'yes' based on how the question was worded.

    However, if the question was "is Biden to the degree of cognitive decline that it prevents him from being able to do the job?", then I'd answer 'no'


    Basically, whenever this conversation comes up, I see people on both sides who make "blinders on" types of assertions.

    You have one side claiming he's a bumbling fool who's declined so bad that he can't remember how to tie his own shoes (based on some selectively edited clips).

    You have the other side who wants to reject the notion of cognitive decline so much so, that they'll honestly pretend that he hasn't declined at all, and is the same Joe of 2008-2012.

    The guy's almost 80, it's silly to say that there hasn't been any decline...it happens to everyone as they get older.

    The reality is (coming from the NIH)
    10% of people over 65 will have at least some form of what they call 'age-associated cognitive impairment', and.

    40% of people over 65 have at least some some form of 'age-associated memory impairment'

    (and those numbers go up even more at age 75, 85, etc...)

    However, that's not the same thing as a person having full-blown dementia.

    Is it something that could get to the level of concerning in the next 3-4 years? Possibly. As someone who had multiple grandparents live well into old age, it seems to be different for everyone.

    My grandpa lived to 86, started showing mild decline in his mid-70's, by 83, he had a hard time remembering which grandkid was which and would leave the stove on by accident.

    My one grandma lived to 88, started having the mild decline in her 70's, but it never really got any worse than that...

    My other grandma lived to 98, sharp as a tack right up until the very end.



    In a nutshell, you have many on the right over-exaggerating the situation based on a facebook/youtube video they saw from Louder w/ Crowder, and many on the left pretending that it's not even a concern at all in efforts to rebuttal the right. I wouldn't call either an accurate assessment.

    Dear Republicans, ^^^this^^^ is how you make a reasonable, sane argument about Biden’s cognitive decline.

    There are plenty of legitimate things to criticize about Biden and the Democrats. Continually latching on to the stupid stuff makes you guys look simple-minded and undiscerning.

    But to be fair, unless one was also making the same argument about the previous guy - the one who was excited to share his knowledge of revolutionary war air power and had to be reminded not to stare directly at the sun - it is going to look more than a little bit suspicious to suddenly start to pretend it matters now.

    Yeah, when taken in context of the last 13+ years of Republican rhetoric, it's clear that none of this is serious, or even-handed, or well-informed. It's all disingenuous and intellectually lazy.

    What do you mean given in? The president has a yearly physical. All presidents have.

    This isn't a yearly physical. But by the way, I'm sure we'd all be interested if you revealed to us what last year's Biden physical revealed about cognitive ability and the rest. It would put a lot of speculation to rest.
