The Atlantic writer Mark Leibovich called on President Biden to not seek re-election in a new opinion piece, declaring the most elderly person to ever hold the White House "too old" to stay on another six years. "Let me put this bluntly: Joe Biden should not run for re-election in 2024. He is too old," Leibovich wrote. (Snip) Biden, already the oldest president ever elected, turns 80 in November and would be 86 at the end of a hypothetical second term. Leibovich quoted one senior administration official telling him he "just seems old." Leibovich, a veteran journalist and author known


Leibovich is a 'hate Trump' guy who apparently had no problem with a flat-lined Biden in 2020. Now that Biden is dragging down the Democrat party, they all want him ousted.

Was he saying this 2 years ago? I was. Or was he decidedly not writing about this 2 years ago?

Leibovich is a flaming leftist who has written a lot about The Swamp. Interesting that he too is jumping ship re Biden, but heaven only knows who he would choose.

President Biden loaded first cat Willow onto the Marine One helicopter for yet another long weekend in Delaware, as first lady Jill Biden cut short her husband’s replies to questions on what most Americans are struggling with — record-high gas prices and soaring inflation. The cat, stowed in a crate, was spotted by journalists Friday being walked across the White House lawn as the chopper hummed. Biden, who on Thursday gave his first on-the-record press interview in four months, took several reporter questions before joining Willow and Jill for the trip to his vacation home in Rehoboth Beach, Del., including

President Biden appeared to get defensive when asked during a Thursday interview if his energy policies were to blame for inflation. In his first interview with The Associated Press, the president – running contrary to what many economists are forecasting after the Federal Reserve raised interest rates – said a recession was "not inevitable." (Snip) At the notion that his administration’s policies were responsible for the worst inflation in 40 years and record-high gas prices, the president reportedly bristled.

Despite a wave of negative news coverage and reports that Democrats are ready to junk President Joe Biden in 2024, he still leads all other potential challengers by a good margin. In the latest Zogby Poll, provided to Secrets today, Biden’s support among Democratic voters is 41%. His only weakness appears to be among younger voters. Former first lady Michelle Obama, who has signaled no interest in running, remains in second at 16% followed by Vice President Kamala Harris at 11%. Should Biden, who would be 81 on Election Day 2024, decide against running, the race tightens to Obama at

During a campaign event at a high school in Des Moines, Iowa, retired Navy Vice Admiral Michael Franken, the Iowa Democrat taking on longtime Republican Sen.

"We would swing at ideas well before states like California." "We were the generators of good ideas," the Iowa Democrat added. However, Franken’s goal to surpass the Golden State in liberalness may not be the golden messaging he’s looking for as inflation rises nationwide, but especially in California. The U.S.'s

President Joe Biden on Tuesday blamed Republicans and the Russian invasion of Ukraine for soaring US inflation, in a bid to deflect voter anger over his inability to keep prices down. Speaking to trade unions in Philadelphia on the eve of the Federal Reserve's likely decision to raise interest rates again, Biden said inflation is "sapping the strength of a lot of families." (Snip) But he rejected arguments that his government's massive spending to stimulate the economy at the tail end of the Covid-19 pandemic was to blame, instead citing shockwaves from Ukraine and Republican obstruction.

Caterpillar Inc. said Tuesday it will move its global headquarters from Illinois to an existing divisional office in Irving, Texas, in the Dallas-Forth Worth area, in another blow to the Chicago area, which last month lost the Boeing Co. headquarters. The move is “in the best strategic interest of the company,” Chief Executive Jim Umpleby said in a statement. The heavy-machinery maker has had a presence in Texas since the 1960s, it said. Even with the move, Illinois has the largest concentration of Caterpillar employees anywhere in the world, the company said. The headquarters was historically in downstate Peoria, Ill.

Journalist Rebecca Traister set out to write a profile of the oldest sitting U.S. senator, Dianne Feinstein of California, who turns 89 on June 22. And while Traister's feature piece does center on Feinstein's long and storied career, it also evokes questions about the senator's cognitive health. NPR's All Things Considered spoke with Traister, a writer for The Cut, about a worrying call she had with Feinstein two days after the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas.

Philadelphia resident Latanya Byrd's 27-year-old niece Samara Banks and three of Banks' sons were struck and killed by a speeding driver in 2013. They were crossing Roosevelt Boulevard, a 12-lane road that passes through some of the city's most diverse and lowest-income neighborhoods. "It was just so devastating," Byrd told ABC News. "We lost two generations in one swoop. I mean, just an instant snap of the finger." As the local population has swelled, Byrd said outdated transportation infrastructure -- grass paths instead of pavements, dangerously short pedestrian signal cycles, overcrowded bus stops, to name a few -- can partially explain why

Progressive Democratic Rep.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed Republicans will quickly take action to halt Democratic progress in the investigation into the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, saying the House select committee’s findings would be “completely suppressed.” Bowman also claimed the GOP would “impeach President Biden as quickly as possible

The image taken by a White House photographer and published Wednesday night by ABC portrays the Vice President, second lady Karen, his daughter Charlotte and his Republican Congressman Greg sitting and waiting as the chaos unfolded. Karen is seen closing the curtains so rioters couldn't see inside while the vice president, Charlotte and Greg sit and wait on chairs. In the hours before, Greg Pence had voted against certifying Joe Biden's election win and Trump supporters were heard chanting 'hang Mike Pence'.

A Catholic private school in Massachusetts has been excommunicated by a local bishop after ignoring orders to remove pride and BLM flags. The Nativity School of Worcester has been sanctioned by Robert J. McManus, the Bishop of the Diocese of Worcester, for their refusal to take them down. He says the facility - the only tuition-free private school in the region - cannot continue to call itself Catholic while flying in the face of key church teachings. The school, run by Principal Emily Kent is the only tuition-free private middle school in the region and serves about 60 students.
