Joe Biden’s mind is not what it used to be and everyone knows it.Over at CNN, analyst Joe Lockhart, who used to be Bill Clinton’s press secretary, is now arguing that Joe Biden should skip the debates with Trump. It’s obvious why he is saying this.Like all Democrats, he is terrified that the public is going to see Biden melt down in real time. From Newsweek: Democratic strategists and supporters of Vice President Joe Biden are urging him not to debate President Donald Trump in the lead-up to Election Day, citing Trump’s publicity stunts and disregard for the rules in 2016.

FTA ~ "Speaking on CNN Saturday, Lockhart said Trump shouldn’t be given another platform which will enable him to “repeat lies,” which he said occurred in the 2016 debates against Hillary Clinton." What lies? Name them, or they're non existent.

I thought Joe Biden is ahead in the polls by 10-11 points. Why would it matter doing the debates, Joe Lockhart?

I don't think he could get away with refusing to debate Trump. Only the Democrats would think this would be okay. For the rest of the country, it would only reinforce what they have been seeing on TV, that Biden is incompetent to be President. If he can't debate one man, he certainly would not be able to stand up to foreign leaders. What would he do, have his VP, or his Cabinet Members do all the talking and negotiating? Nope, I think he's going to have to put on his Big Boy pants and debate the President. After all, Biden is the one who is supposed to show the world WHY he would be a better Leader of the country than Trump. He can't do that hiding in his Basement!

I pray that Trump will refuse to debate on CNN, Now that Murdock is out of FOX, he should insist on that venue. CNN cheated the last time and they will again by giving Trump's opponents the questions before the debate. Or they will let him wear an ear but that will allow someone to feed him the answers.

Trump will never even consider dropping out of the debates. It's most probable that Biden will not debate. The downside risk of Biden not debating is less than Biden imploding during the debates and thereby exposing to TV viewers just to incompetent his is. The mainstream media is currently doing a remarkably good job of hiding Biden's propensity for gaffs. If Biden implodes during any debate, which is highly probable, he will lose far more votes than will result from Biden not debating, Biden's team is currently pondering excuses to try to justify Biden bailing out of the debates. They clearly understand that the Biden's "debate problem" is by far his greatest risk.

There have been some nasty, snarky press secretaries over the years, and Joe was the worst of the lot, in my opinion, which I continue to value highly. Objectively speaking, it would be stupid to put Biden on stage with DJT, and I have consistently said it would not happen. jimmy Carter was a damned fool to debate Ronald Reagan. It may have cost him the presidency. But foolish pride made him do it. Old Jo is to be pitied - his handlers, greedy wife and greedy siblings,greedy daughter and drug addled greedy son, are advancing him for no good reason, other than as a moneymaker for them. Old Jo is the worst presidential nominee that I can remember, and I can remember Tom Dewey's first run. I am old. Wendell Wilkie ,may have been worse than Old Jo, as a nominee, but I can think of no one else in my lifetime who deserves that label.

I highly doubt there will be any debates between Trump and Biden. Biden’s dementia has progressed since the Democrat debates. They can’t afford to put this on display. Their whole strategy is to hope for enough Trump haters, voter fraud, and leftist freaks to somehow get him elected.

The only reason that Senile Joe has survived until now is because the "virus" gave him an excuse to remain in hiding. He was gaffing regularly before the shutdown and every time he pops his head up now he either has a brain freeze or he says something stupid. A majority of people KNOW he is mentally incompetent. If he doesn't show himself to prove that he is not, an impossibility because he is, voters will assume he is. Further, what does it say that a party put forth a senile elder to run for president? It shows horrific judgement, an absence of morality and ethics, and cruelty. People like BO who support Joe are furthering the cruelty. Is that the party who you would want running the Country?

You have to admit how sneaky and 'politically astute' these Demos/Media are, though. They say nothing against Biden. Their main argument is that Trump lies so much that Biden would spend his entire time refuting the lies and not get to say anything about himself. Then, they argue that the public is unaware of how much Trump lies because they don't watch Fox News or follow Trump's Twitter feed where all the lies are propagated. They say then that debates would open up the public's mind and awareness to the lies, which are so damaging to the body politic that debates just can't proceed on the basis of protecting the public and the integrity of the process. Now of course they never specifically name anything he's lied about or go into detail at all, so it's just raw mudslinging at its finest. The shear audacity of the premise is outrageous. But, let's pray this tactic doesn't work. People need to read between the lines and see their real reason for not wanting debates: Biden would lose against Trump because he is mentally sharp and Biden is in declining cognitive acuity. They need to hide the actual Biden so people will vote for the 'Biden' they have formulated in their wishes and dreams. They need people to vote for the party and its ideology and not the man/candidate, which is not something Americans usually do in the presidential election. So, they think, best to keep this man hidden as long as possible.

The democrat idiots don't understand that Biden's inability to successfully debate President Trump is an indicator of how he would be steamrolled by our foreign enemies, like China's president. Of course, China is a good friend of the democrats (they think!) so Ol' Joe wouldn't have to worry about facing him or other world leaders.

I am almost certain there will be no debates. I am looking for Biden to feign outrage at a Trump action or tweet and refuse to lower himself to debating our "deplorable" president. Biden cannot risk brain freeze on a debate stage, ear bud or not.

CHICAGO — She’s too ambitious. She’s not apologetic enough. She should smile more. The debate over Joe Biden’s running mate has recently ticked through a familiar list of stereotypes about women in politics as the Democratic presidential candidate and his allies stumble through a search they had hoped would stand out for its inclusion and diversity. Instead, the vice presidential vetting has resurfaced internal party divisions between the old-guard establishment and a younger generation that’s more attuned to gender and racial biases and willing to speak out. Some contend it’s just more evidence of why Biden needs a woman on his ticket.

Venezuela has the world’s highest murder rate because the police there don’t stop murder unless it helps politics. So long as homocide doesn’t threaten the power or wealth of the governing party, murders are largely unsolved and are often committed by the very police who should be preventing them. As Business Insider reports, in Venezuela murders happen with “widespread impunity” because of “the complete [dysfunction] of the judicial system that allows for a significant degree of impunity for some, usually high-profile, offenders, and, as a result, disregard for the law, because it’s selectively applied.”

A disconnect appears to have arisen between the Food and Drug Administration and a sizable number of physicians when it comes to prescribing hydroxychloroquine for COVID-19 patients. The situation garnered extra attention last week when a group of physicians billing themselves as America’s Frontline Doctors insisted that the drug could treat COVID-19 in a high-profile press conference in Washington. Clips of the event went viral on social media before being blocked on some platforms as misinformation. At the root of the disconnect is a medical practice known as "off-label prescribing.""Let doctors be doctors," said Dr. Alieta Eck,

Most media outlets have ignored the revelations, which would be massive headline news if a past or present Republican president was implicated in the allegations. Twitter users jumped on the Epstein-Clinton connection, however, particularly in the context of the media trying to bury the story because it reflects poorly on Clinton specifically and Democrats generally.
