    Does anyone want someone this old and confused with his hand on THE button? What if he puts it down somewhere and forgets it? Americans, please do not vote for either Commie Bernie or Creepy Joe.

    joe Biden (with his mental state and GAFFEs) and KOMRAD Bernie (with his HEART ATTACK) are both ALARMING and FULL of health concerns, not just their FAILING POLITICS. I doubt if either one of them would finish out their Presidential terms . And, a president PASSING ON while in office is very traumatic to the nation. One VERY concerned Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

    I agree with everything you said when I see my friends that are that age make those mistakes we laugh and say exactly what you said oops a senior moment. I have a friend who is 79 he says at my age I just glad I put my underwear on the inside of my pants again we joke. I am sure those with grandparents find it cute but we are talking about the presidency here not your friend or grandfather. This will also put a lot of pressure on who he picks to be vice president. The odds are simple who ever he picks as his vice president has a really high chance of taking over as president. The people he seems to be thinking of are not anyone the American people would elect if they ran today. That’s why I tell all the people who want to vote for Joe wait until you see who he picks as his Vice president because that’s probably who you will be electing to be vice president.

    they are both verging on senility and really should be retired,there should be an upper age limit on presidential candidates like 75

    The same should be said about supreme court justices. Ginsberg should have been out 10 years ago.

    I am 81 and I agree with President Carter. I would never ever run for office at my age, to many medical things turn up and I notice that Joe makes to many mistakes in his comments and I believe that he has a mental problem which would seriously affect his term of office. If you still like Biden you better have a great VP to take over.

    Hello Larry Horist:

    you are so right – but I want to add:
    80 years old is too old for any job, where you have to concentrate to be good,
    is too old for any job where you have to decide about the wellbeing for others,
    as a public figure,
    definately much too old to be still in a “life time” position, like a judge.
    Original-lifetime jobs should end at 65.
    Maximum 80 years of age is (or should be) the last point of retirement of any and all jobs –
    to my mind – – but I am already 81. –

    What do you think?

    I.R.Heller I would never say that 80 is too old for any job. I have a lady friend who is 89 and writes a monthly column for a newspaper. She is sharp as a tack and has not trouble with the computer, email and all those other new fangled things. I am over 75 and can play tennis in 90-degree weather, enjoy an active social life, and write more than 30 commentaries a month. And I recently jumped out of an airplane at 14,000 feet for the first time. I was reluctant to mention the last action since a number of people said that I have, indeed, lost my mind. Iam a firm believer that people should be productive as long as they can. However, it all depends on the job. I would not recommend 80-year-old firemen or brain surgeons.– or presidents. Also, the presidency is a four year commitment .. so it is not only how active Biden or Sanders may be today. We are all at that age where “anything can happen” — and eventually will.

    Jimmy Carter could not be more correct on this! I retired at 64! My husbad the same! We are so glad we did! Be with family the time you have left, grandkids need to know you and they are such fun!

    Just me.

    Biden is suffering from Dementia. But he won’t admit it ? He has said he would pick a woman for VP. Hillary? Heaven help the USA if he gets elected.
