OP-ED: What Took So Long?

Newsmax reported yesterday on a poll from Rasmussen regarding President Biden’s fitness for office. Many on the Right openly voiced concerns about Biden’s declining mental health for much of the last year. It begs the question of what took everyone else so long to see what we’ve seen all along?

According to the poll, fifty percent of those surveyed “lacked confidence in President Biden’s fitness for office.” Also of note, fifty-two percent “were concerned he has yet to hold a press conference.” I would have voted ‘yes’ for both of these questions were I included in the survey. My guess is many of you feel the same.


I want to be clear about my opinion on the matter. Regardless of how a person enters office, they are the identified leader of our country. As such, I always want the best physical, mental, and spiritual health for them to lead us as well as they are able. I feel this way whether I voted for the person. I think this way whether I think they should or shouldn’t be President. At some point, we have to hit the ground with someone calling the shots. I want whomever our shot-caller is to be the best version of himself or herself to guide us through whatever may lay ahead.

Having provided my disclaimer, I can’t understand why people are slow to realize we are watching a tragic and cringeworthy decline of the leader of the free world. Over the last year, I spent enough time on social media reading anecdotal stories about Americans watching loved ones enter into cognitive decline. I watched my uncle succumb to the same outcome. He passed away three years ago. I don’t need a doctor to tell me I see a problem. The doctor’s job is to offer an official diagnosis and prognosis.

I’m left to wonder if this is a case of low-information voters who suffered from Trump Derangement Syndrome to the point where they were ready to pull the lever for anyone not named Trump. If so, then they are likely experiencing buyer’s remorse. For the record, I’ve heard this called #BidenRemorse on a particular BigTech platform that uses blue checkmarks.


Moreover, if voters have buyer’s remorse now, I can’t imagine what it will be like Vice President Harris assumes office. Let me be clear; I’m not hoping or rooting for further decline for President Biden.

I see the writing on the wall and won’t bury my head in the sand to what I surmise as to the inevitable outcome. Within that context, Harris—who polled at two percent in her own Party’s primaries—will be the leader of the free world. I will hope and pray for God’s grace and blessings for her wise stewardship. I won’t hold my breath that she will deliver a miracle.

The final thing I’m left to wonder is how long the Left will let this play out. By my calculations, the longer that Biden stays in office, the more it helps the Democrats unmask who Kamala Harris really is. I don’t think it’s a reach to opine that Team Blue had initial hopes that Biden could survive through the 2022 midterm elections. Barring that, keeping him propped up as the President for as long as possible until that point buys the Democrats less lousy press than a socialist agenda promoted by Harris.


Please don’t take my word on that. Harris was widely considered the most ‘progressive’ Senator in Congress, even making Bernie Sanders blush. And maybe that’s the real reason it’s taking so long for Democrats to own up to the mess unfolding at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

As always, this has been the World, According to Chris.
