Joe Biden, 35 years ago.

A Tough Act To Follow

Presidents' State of the Union speeches are usually a tough act to follow, which is why this year, the job went to little-known Senator Katie Britt of Alabama--because no one more prominent wanted the job. On X, user "Maze" had a brilliant suggestion the Republicans should have taken: just play Joe Biden's response to George H.W. Bush's State of the Union 35 years go. This would have been a great idea for multiple reasons: 

  • It illustrates how long Biden has been in politics. 35 years ago, he was already one of the longest-sitting Senators. 
  • It shows how much Biden has declined cognitively. A few years ago, Biden supporters started claiming that Biden was a lifelong stutterer, but Biden doesn't stutter at all in his SOTU response. He also doesn't start yelling for no reason. 
  • It shows how far Joe Biden has drifted from the fairly reasonable man he was in the early 1990s, where he favored more police and tougher prosecution of crime, and even wanted a crackdown on drugs coming across the border

Watch for yourself, and see what you think.
