Posted on 02/21/2020 6:11:14 PM PST by Mount Athos
Former Vice President Joe Biden said Thursday that he wont promise to serve just one presidential term because of his advanced age but pledged that he would not seek a second if he loses energy and mental acuity.
Look, I guarantee you this: if anything changed in my health making incapable for me to fully exert all the energy and mental acuity that was needed to be done, I give you my word I would not run again, Biden, 77, told a CNN town hall.
Its totally legitimate for yall to ask about my age or anybody elses age up there and our health. Thats why I give all my medical records, everything, okay, the whole deal, so you know where I am, he said.
Biden then observed that he was not the only candidate on stage who was over 70 years of age. And Im in pretty good health: knock on wood, as my mother would say.
But Bidens behavior and apparent confusion on the campaign trail has attracted queries about his age and health. He has forgotten where he is at times during speeches, hes been involved in angry confrontations with potential voters and even called a young woman a lying, dog-faced pony soldier.

Don’t sweat it, Joe.
By the time Nov. comes around, Slow Joe will be wearing a bib so he doesn’t slobber on his tie.
He didn’t say mental acuity. He said mental acruity, whatever the hell that is.
That’s ok Joe, we’ve already ruled out the first term for the same reason.
First, one doesn’t usually realize or admit that they are losing their mental acuity.
Second, that ship already sailed uncle Joe.
And now I think it’s quarantined at sea.
Somebody should have told him not to run, that time is already here.
He cannot survive a “first term” as his acuity and mental whatever are already working at half capacity. The guy can barely carry on a full conversation let alone deal with leaders of other nations.
If his campaign weren't already over, which it is, this ends it.
too late Biden.
Joe is the new Jeb
What if he doesn’t have mental acuity now?
We can just call him a liar. If he won't bow out now for that reason,
who thinks he ever would.
Well, then who replaced him during 0bama’s second term?
Someone needs to change the Wikipedia entry. It stilllists him as the second term VP.
Well Duuuuuuuuhhhh. Just having to address the issue is disqualifing. My thought is why is that DOCTOR wife of yours letting this joke of a campaign continue, she has some answering to do. Abuse of the elderly is in play.
It's the humane thing to do.
He doesn’t want it. Never did.
He’s just starting to set up his exit.
Go away, Joe, you pro-abort elitist SOB. Your time is up, and you are found wanting.
She is not an MD.
