NY Times: Say, Biden Is Kept Pretty Cocooned, Eh?

Should we be surprised that the NY Times is exposing just how much Biden is protected from those pesky reporters and citizens? Of course, it was a piece published on Saturday

Inside Biden’s Protective White House

Where's Joe BidenAides have President Joe Biden take the shorter stairs to board Air Force One. When it comes to news conferences, they yell loudly — and quickly — to end the questions, sometimes stealing a classic awards show tactic and playing loud music to signal the conclusion of the event. And forget about regular interviews with major news publications, including a traditional presidential sit-down on Super Bowl Sunday.

Over the years, some of Biden’s key aides have gone from letting “Joe be Joe” to wrapping a presidential cocoon around him that is intended to shield him from verbal slips and physical stumbles.

All presidents are shielded by the strictures of the office, yet for Biden, who at 81 is the oldest person in history to hold the job, the decision is not only situational but strategic, according to several people who are familiar with the dynamic. The cloistered nature of his White House reflects a concern among some of his top aides that Biden, who has always been prone to gaffes, risks making a mistake.

Most of the rest of this piece is not complementary nor an attempt to defend Biden, though, if it was a Republican president who was being cocooned this much they’d be ripping that person to shreds, demanding that they answer questions, that they do press conferences, and, if not capable, retire.

Thing is, it’s really not about Biden’s age even though they’re trying to run polls to that effect, which is a precursor to discussing ageism

Overwhelming majority of Americans think Biden is too old for another term: POLL

An overwhelming majority of Americans think President Joe Biden is too old to serve another term, according to a new ABC News/Ipsos poll.

According to the poll, conducted using Ipsos’ Knowledge Panel, 86% of Americans think Biden, 81, is too old to serve another term as president. That figure includes 59% of Americans who think both he and former President Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner, are too old and 27% who think only Biden is too old.

I know many who are older than Biden, and, while they might have some of the infirmities you get with age, they are mentally sound. They don’t say wacky stuff, do weird stuff, and just look lost all the time. They do not have to disappear from the public the vast majority of weekends. What will the Credentialed Media do if Biden essentially disappears from public events during the campaign? The danger is allowing him to appear in public and get the Bidencrazy on a constant basis.

    In 2020 Americans voted for Biden because he was not Trump. He won because he was not Trump.

    The Democrats have painted themselves into a corner. They stuck with Mr Biden past the point at which he can be reasonably replaced as the 2024 candidate, and he was too stubborn to decide against re-election when he could have. If he voluntarily 25th Amendments himself, but stays in the race, he verifies everything that sensible people have said about him. If he is involuntarily 25th Amendmented, the same thing happens. In either case, you have Acting President Kamala Emhoff as the shadow President, but she can’t run a campaign for herself, without undermining President Biden.

    If Mr Biden either resigns, which I don’t see happening, or goes untimely to his eternal reward, which as a (purportedly) Catholic radical abortion supporter will undoubtedly be Hell, then we have the spectacle of the unlikable Kamala Emhoff as President, and Governor Gavin Newsom of the Pyrite State mounting a quick campaign against her. https://www.thepiratescove.us/wp-content/plugins/wp-monalisa/icons/wpml_yahoo.gif

    Dems can easily divorce/desperate from Biden
    That “marriage” occured only because he was deemed better than Trump
    On the other hand, the GOP can not delete from Trump even if he is convicted and jailed. 25% of the 1/3 of Americans who identify as Republicans will vote for no one else under any circumstances. That amounts to 8%,0 of voters and the GOP can not win without them

    Now if we could just get Mob Boss Fatuous Donnie to cocoon himself!

    Note to MAGAts, “leatherneck” refers to U.S. Marines, NOT your candidate whose face resembles a 50s era baseball glove, not a Marine.

    How to detect the start of Fatuous Donnie tall tale… “He said to me, ‘Sir’…”
