I believe that people have the opportunity of contributing to society as long as they are here on the planet. I loved my father and learned from him until the day he died.
Unfortunately, not everyone has that same mindset, especially in the political arena. One 29-year-old politician really pulled the age-card when running against his political opponent, saying things like his rival was “over the hill,” painting a gramp image, hinted at his frailty, and said he had “lost the twinkle in his eyes.”
Who would say something like that, especially about a United States senator who had faithfully served our country for 26 consecutive years as a representative, governor, and two-term senator? Well, the age-bashing 29-year-old was none other than Joe Biden, running against the 63-year-old Republican incumbent Sen. J. Caleb Boggs.

According to CBS News, “This messaging strategy was ‘ordered by Biden himself,’ Delaware political scribe Norm Lockman wrote days before the 1972 election, and ‘use[d] an approach that says, in effect, ‘Dear old dad may have been right for his time – and I love him – but things are different now.”” In speaking of Biden, Boggs was quoted as saying, “I like him very much, but I can’t say the same for some of his advertising”.
Let’s see, Joe Bidden was 29 years old when he said the 63-year-old senator was “over the hill“, painting a gramp image, hinted at his frailty, and said he had “lost the twinkle in his eyes”.
I wonder what the 29-year-old Joe Biden would have to say about the 80-year-old Joe Biden today.
Is Joe Biden, at 80, “over the hill”?
Let’s see if Joe Biden shows evidence of being entrenched in wrongheaded racial antiquated ideologies concerning different ethnic groups. During a recent speech to an audience of military veterans and federal officials Biden insulted the Irish on Saint Patrick’s Day by saying, “I may be Irish, but I am not stupid,” setting off a host of concerns that he had just insulted the Irish nation and people.
In speaking of Latinos in America, Biden explained that they were resistant to the COVID vaccination because “they’re worried that they’ll be vaccinated and deported.” Biden’s statement assumes that all Latinos present in this country are illegal aliens subject to expulsion. He seemed to forget the fact that more than 60 million Latinos are actually American citizens, according to a recent census figure.
Speaking concerning black Americans, Biden explained to his audience that black people have a fear of the vaccine because “They are used to being experimented on – the Tuskegee Airmen and others,” as Biden confused the legendary World War II fighter pilots with a long, notorious governmental study of syphilis among black men called the Tuskegee Experiment.
Who can forget that on a morning radio show in May of 2020, Biden infamously asserted to the largely black audience that if they were unsure of whether to vote for him or for Trump, then “you ain’t black!”
Unfortunately, there is more to be captured and was reported by Tim Murtaugh at The Heritage Foundation.
How about the topic of “frail”?
Biden has been falling up, falling down, falling over and sleeping during world conference meetings since he was elected. Joe Biden frequently falls up the stairs to Air Force One, falling March 19, 2021, December 21, 2021, May 12, 2022 and June 9, 2022, all found without an exhaustive search. Joe Biden fell down the steps while visiting Indonesia and had to be caught and supported by the Indonesian president. Joe fell over on his bicycle at a park near his Delaware beach home. At the COP26 global climate summit in Glasgow in November, the BBC caught Biden with his eyes closed for some time and asked if he was sleeping or just resting his eyes. In October a reporter stated that Biden fell asleep during the interview. In August of 2021 Biden apparently fell asleep during a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Bennett.
How about the topic “lost his twinkle in his eyes”?
Well, I cannot figure out what he is looking at as he blankly stares off into space, as he so often does at his speeches and interviews. He is also known for shaking hands with no one, as he did in Washington, D.C., Israel, at an air show and after a North Carolina speech. In addition there seems to be a problem with Joe not being able to find his way off stage at a U.N. event, at a political rally, and at his Toys for Tots speech in Arlington, Virginia, where he had to be directed off stage by a little girl.
Now I hear that Joe is considering running for president in 2024 when he will be nearly 82 years-old. Since the 29-year-old Joe Biden thought the 63-year-old Sen. Boggs was “over the hill,” painting a gramp image, hinted at his frailty, and said he had “lost the twinkle in his eyes,” I wonder what the young Biden would have said about the 80-year-old Joe Biden as Joe considers running for office again?
