Behind Closed Doors, Biden Shows Signs of Slipping

WSJ:

WASHINGTON—When President Biden met with congressional leaders in the West Wing in January to negotiate a Ukraine funding deal, he spoke so softly at times that some participants struggled to hear him, according to five people familiar with the meeting. He read from notes to make obvious points, paused for extended periods and sometimes closed his eyes for so long that some in the room wondered whether he had tuned out.

In a February one-on-one chat in the Oval Office with House Speaker Mike Johnson, the president said a recent policy change by his administration that jeopardizes some big energy projects was just a study, according to six people told at the time about what Johnson said had happened. Johnson worried the president’s memory had slipped about the details of his own policy.

Last year, when Biden was negotiating with House Republicans to lift the debt ceiling, his demeanor and command of the details seemed to shift from one day to the next, according to then-House Speaker Kevin McCarthy and two others familiar with the talks. On some days, he had loose and spontaneous exchanges with Republicans, and on others he mumbled and appeared to rely on notes.

“I used to meet with him when he was vice president. I’d go to his house,” McCarthy said in an interview. “He’s not the same person.”

You mean… he’s WORSE in private than what WE see? DAYAM!! This is F**KED UP!

Robin Ware/Robert L. Peters/JRB Ware/Pedo Peter/idiot Biden has NEVER been sharp, he’s never been smart, he’s never been a leader. Now, as he fails, he is surrounded by Obama acolytes that was pushing to destroy the free, patriotic, capitalistic, wealthy and Constitutional America. They need his cadaver-like mannequin presence to provide cover for their agenda.
