Are Biden’s Memory Problems Fair Game for Rivals?
It’s no secret at this point that former Vice President Joe Biden is an aging man whose memory is starting to fail him. In fact, Biden’s age and his failing memory combine to create one of the biggest question marks surrounding his campaign. The question now, though, is whether or not Biden’s Democratic rivals should start honing in on this weakness.
For presidential hopeful Julian Castro, the answer to this question was yes. In the most recent Democratic debate, Castro hammered Biden multiple times on his failing memory. The media reaction to these attacks was far from positive, with many in the media calling Castro’s comments shameful and unacceptable.
However, their disapproval of Castro’s comments seems to be more of an attempt to defend the Democratic frontrunner than it is an actual issue with the comments themselves.
In reality, Biden’s age and his memory troubles are fair game for both his Democratic rivals and President Trump should Biden make it to the general election. When it comes to choosing the leader of the free world, no concerns are off-limits, and determining whether or not a candidate has the mental stability to hold the office of President is certainly a fair question to ask.
