Even Hollywood is turning on Biden.

It might be smart to make an announcement NOW instead of the Convention or the DNC might turn into 1968 and result in Hubert Humphrey who lost by 20 points.

If they do it before the RNC it steals all the oxygen and media away from the GOP.

Might be a smart move.

It's fun to ponder, what they gonna do. Dems. kinda got themsleves between a rock and a hard place. IF Joe drops out, they almost HAVE to put Kamala in his place, because after all, she is the most qualified for the job because she is a she and black, and if they don't put her in the position, the blacks gonna raise holy heck and without the black vote, the Dem loses.

Everybody on their short list would make ol' "Triple H" look like a prize. Come to think of it, Hubert would be a prize in today's Democratic Party! I no longer recognize it.

I wonder if Kamala offers up an extra serving of her umm speciality if that could persuade Joe? Bet she thought she was done with that after she got the VP spot.

I really hope Slow Joe stays in, I don’t think the fence riders will vote for him. The down and dirty dems will, but they would vote for satan if he had a D beside his name. Come to think of it…….

Why even discuss it. Anyone with a brain cell saw this coming from the day he was “elected”.

They almost got away with it which get anyone's attention.With the basement campaign in 16' clear up to now.If he could have been successfully propped up until November they might have pulled it off The dementia is undeniable now at the worst time.

Dementia. What dementia? FDP said just recently that Biden and Trump were on the same cognitive level.

Easiest way to get him to quit is to get control of the Teleprompter.

50/50 if he reads it correctly though.

Keep in mind that Joe and Kamala have 240 million dollars in their campaign war chest, and it can only be used if Joe or Kamala is the candidate. I'm guessing that if neither one is the candidate, they have to return the money to the donors. If so, then the new candidate starts over with fund raising. Gives Kamala the edge if The Big Guy drops out, imo.

Sleepy Joe was never meant to have 2 terms. He was the Dems avenue to beat Trump in 2020 and then to hopefully get someone better in for the 2nd term.

Trouble is, now Sleepy Joes handlers aren’t going along the plan.

Bidens interview tomorrow - 7/11 - will be very telling because now the bar has been raised, not lowered for Biden to show the people he can do the job.

Tomorrow evening should have lots of fodder

Tomorrow's presser will be must-see TV. I wouldn't want to be the doc on his staff responsible for getting the drug cocktail right, because he is so erratic from day to day. Nobody know what we're going to get once the reporters start asking hard questions and he has no prompter to read. He might even beat Medicare again! Beat Medicare like he beat the Russians at Gettysburg in Korea!

Yeah, Biden will stay in for a couple of months, step down in a heroic fashion, then we get the Cackler. Our enemies and antagonists will be shaking in their boots...with laughter.

As a nurse I can safely say that he has been sick for a few years and his condition has exacerbated over the last 4-5 years. His manufactured gait (PT therapy) facial expressions, lack of concentration, among other signs were obvious in 2020. I think it's shameful to make lite of his situation. I wouldn't wish this on anyone. I deal with this shit every day and it's pitiful, the pain and frustration these folks feel. The loss of control both mentally and physically is humiliating and very depressing. HIs wife should be put in jail for letting him enter the race in 2020 when he was noticeably affected and take the abuse his has undoubtedly had to face both publicly and privately. I believe he was given/talked into this situation as payback for all his corrupt activity he was allowed to get away with, as they all do. Maybe with a promise that he and his sons' crap would go away. Every member of the House and Senate should be put in prison for going along with this tragedy that has been laid at our door steps. The Surgeons General should be put in the brig for his/her (not sure who it is right now) conduct towards this man, he's a Dr. for crying out loud. I feel bad for Biden. That being said, I've always thought he was a POS, he was the epitome of a dishonest, thieving, creepy politician his whole career and should've been put in prison decades ago. The folks in authority are throwing their contempt for us in our face without fear of reprisal so much more now than ever and the world is laughing at us, knowing how easy we can be controlled and manipulated and that's a shame.

Back on point. Could be Harris but then who would be her VP. Ms.Obama, Calif. gov.? who among the list of goofs would be chosen?

One more thing before I retire. Don't forget Ronald Reagan had dementia for some of his second term and was given meds that were in their trial phase for the last year or so of his presidency. When/if Biden bows out he is going to crash hard from all the shit they're pumping into him. Appears, from reports that he is not doing much after 4P tells me he is probably Sundowning, and if he does appear publicly after that, he must be getting one hell of drug cocktail to get him going, shame on everyone involved with that.

Shameful to make light of his condition?......... Really?

The Democrats were tricked into electing this guy president. This isn't just someone's Grandpa...this is the president of the US. It's criminal what the Dem party did. They put us all in danger....from the illegal immigration on a massive scale to their escalating military conflict on many fronts.

This is something that affects all of us...and will for a long time after Biden is gone. only Idiots claim the president is a figurehead but when he initiates policy like Massive illegal immigration that has cost us Billions taking money away from programs that benefit US citizens, injects criminals and terrorists inside our borders and will cost us hundreds of billions for many years into the future.

Then look at all the weapons he sent to Ukraine, the joke of a relief effort to Gaza, The freebies he handed to China, Hamas, Palestinians, Iran- all while getting totally disrespected by those same groups.

The president doesn't matter- Ha! The gov of Alaska says Biden initiated 65 policy decisions severely affecting them- the Biden admin circumvented congress and did that on their own. Thats more policy changes than against many enemy countries....how many ways can the Biden admin wreck America?

Thats just a small part of it- its ridiculous to claim the president is powerless.

Gavin Newsom is out campaigning like crazy, "For Joe" - Yeah right....Newsom doesn't do anything except himself.

Meanwhile, Ca is turning into a shithole. He has mismanaged the massive tax inflows into a deficit. He wants to raise fuel prices something like $.50/gal. Our energy bills in CA are second only to Hawaii as the WORST INTHE COUNTRY. Money taken away from infrastructure to fund his stupid stuff like a bullet train to nowhere.

. He opened the pandoras box of Black Reparations..and that is still simmering. All of those slave owners in CA must be rolling over in their graves...oh wait, there were none.

The Sacramento gov is threatening to fine Target for calling the police on Shoplifters...how dare they? Billions in Fed gov Homeless money un-accounted for. Crime off the chart- but of course they don't report it...so it makes their stats look better.

I hate to say it, but this Newsom is worse than Joe Biden- and thats saying something.

Whoever it is the plan has been in place since the election. It's played out, they are probably surprised it lasted this long. Now on to some other figure head. Maybe that dim bulb Secretary of State, he seems to be able to tow the socialist line.

I'm not sure their plan included swapping out Joe before the election or Joe not being on board with that. They may have to use more carrot or more stick.

Plenty of personal stuff as well. Biden and Obama don't like each other. Jill obviously doesn't have Joe's best interest in mind. None of them like Kamala.

"Yea they're all idiots who manage to get themselves re-elected year after year and become millionaires in the process."

Pretty much.

In all seriousness, I wouldn't paint them all as idiots. I think in general they are great marketers and salesman and the average American is too dumb to realize it - hence, the career politician.

But in terms of establishing complex, long-term plans and successfully carrying out those plans in a clandestine and secretive way...no, they aren't that smart.
