The world’s stuck with Biden.

To anyone but the determinedly blind, it’s been obvious for at least the last eighteen months that Biden is senile. The Dems stole the 2020 election and got away with it but that raised the tricky question of what to do with a doddering old fool of a candidate who by the time he took the oath of office couldn’t barely string a coherent sentence together unless it was being fed to him through an earpiece by one of his handlers.

Some situations nobody can plan for in advance because it’s fate interfering with what was a reasonable course of action – all you can do is manage the problem in front of you. In common with most observers, I expected some sort of graceful medical retirement after six months of increasingly embarrassing gaffs followed by wheeling in Heels Up Harris as president pro tem until 2024, by which time they’d have legally nailed down the whole freshly corrupted electoral system of the banana republic the United States had become. By then, they could install any compliant puppet.

What that assessment didn’t take into account was two things. The first was the taste for power his unelected and therefore unaccountable handlers might acquire having had a taste of such heady stuff. Like all faceless bureaucrats, it went straight to their head. It was all going so well, this puppet masters stuff. An emasculated press corps was retrained to never ask an unrehearsed question on the rare occasion they were even granted a live audience with their mouthpiece, both houses of congress and both parties were cooperating and the executive and judiciary branches of government knew which way the wind was blowing and went straight back to their swampy ways.

The leaders of foreign countries know exactly what the true situation is and how weak and incompetent the handlers are, so they’re taking the opportunity to take the piss big time in areas like the South China sea, Taiwan, the Ukraine and even the regional maniacs like Iran are having a go. If America should prepare for anything in the coming year, it’ll be more foreign policy humiliations. This administration looks to be very likely to lift Jimmy Carter’s crown as being the weakest and most internationally embarrassing in US history.

The second was that Heels Up would have been a less useful puppet than Biden. That’s not because she’s stubborn or won’t be told what to say and do – she’s been doing that all her life. It’s because as far as the electorate are concerned, she has that killer combination of being actively despised by most people while at the same time being not too bright. Add into the mix that her performance as VP, widely acknowledged in political circles as a non-job, has been an abject failure, and very publically so. Protecting a loose cannon like Harris from her own stupidity and incompetence would be a bigger job than the one they’ve currently got with Biden.

That being the case and assuming Biden’s condition doesn’t deteriorate drastically, keeping him in place as a nominal president is a sustainable course of action in the context of their retaining power. Whether it’s sustainable for America is a different question.

    I’ve missed your essays so delighted to be reading them again.

    It will be fascinating, in a somewhat horrifying way, to see how far the increasingly difficult cover-up job goes. A lot of people over here still think Biden is a decent sort of chap and are astonished when I enlighten them. However, everyone can now see he is senile and the US is becoming a laughing stock. Trump is being compared favourably.

    I’ve always thought they would keep Biden going until he has been in office for 2 years and then let him “retire”. The VP who then takes over has a chance at 10 years in office, as the handover of less than 2 years does not count as one of the two terms a president is allowed to have.

    If the current VP Harris resigns this year for health reasons, then a new VP can be appointed who will much better meet the needs of the backroom handlers. As a new VP needs to confirmed by congress, and there is a good chance the Democrats will lose the house this year, then that would suggest she will resign before the elections.

      That is pretty much what the pundits have been saying for the past year. With the exception of Harris resigning. But she has proven so bad at everything, they are trying to figure out how to get rid of her (spending a night in Chappaquiddick would solve that), without revealing they are racist bigots.
