As Biden Bumbles, the Question is: Who’s Really Running the Country?; It’s Time for Pelosi to Reintroduce Mental-Fitness Bill for Presidents, and related stories

As Biden bumbles, the question is: Who’s really running the country?
Chris Rock famously said, when Barack Obama was president, “The president and the first lady are kind of like the mom and the dad of the country. And when your dad says something, you listen.”
Joe Biden, though, is the granddad of the country, and when you listen to Granddad, sometimes you wonder whether it’s safe for him to be near a pair of scissors.
No big deal, though; it’s just that there’s this guy who looks like he’d have trouble using Google Maps and he happens to be in charge of all the nukes. On the rare occasions when Biden’s staff let him out of the dayroom to be seen on camera, pre-selected members of the press ask him the gentlest conceivable questions and then wind up cringing anyway as Biden gives one unnerving display after another.

It’s time for Pelosi to reintroduce mental-fitness bill for presidents:
Last October, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced a bill that would allow Congress to evaluate the mental health of sitting presidents to see if the 25th Amendment — which articulates that if a U.S. president becomes unable to do his job due to fitness issues, then the vice president becomes the president or acting president — would and could apply.
Mrs. Pelosi insisted at the time the bill wasn’t directed at then-President Trump, who she deemed was in an “altered state,” but the need for Congress “to create a process for future presidents.”
Well, Mrs. Pelosi, maybe it’s time to reintroduce the bill. Because President Biden is clearly not up to the task.
The legislation, which was first introduced in 2017 by Democratic Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, would create an expert panel, with members appointed by both Republicans and Democrats in the House and the Senate, which would complete a medical exam of the sitting president to “determine whether the President is mentally or physically unable to discharge the powers and duties of the office.”
Mr. Raskin previously said the panel would include doctors as well as former presidents and Cabinet secretaries, who would each serve a four-year term. I’m sure Mr. Trump would gladly serve on the panel – after all, he was subjected to a Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MOCA) while he held office, which he passed with flying colors. --->READ MORE HERE
